    • For me, You're Mine (Eternal) is the best song from The Elusive Chanteuse, even better than Beautiful. Without the song, I would have considered the album utter failure. It's a cute song. It should definitely enter Mariah's Top 100 in the years to come.

      • You're Mine (Eternal) is a filler track. GYN is so irritating, I was shocked when it was released as a single. I have always like Say Somethin”, though.
        Haven't been early since '88

        • Get Your Number and Say Somethin’ are low! Both great jams.

          Through The Rain was very traditional Mariah.

          • Now That I Know is very energetic, I enjoy it everytime it shows up as it lifts me up.

            Heartbreaker / If You Should Ever Be Lonely (Junior's Heartbreaker Club Mix): I don't generally like the Dance Remixes. I enjoy them but they are not the type of music I would conciously select to listen to. But this one is amongst her best ones.

            Say Somethin' (ft. Snoop Dogg) is a very interesting song imo. It is very different from her and I like she let Neptunes do their thing. And being actually the first thing I listened from Emancipation, as this leaked months prior of It's Like That, everytime this sounds it reminds me the feeling of complete ecstasy of listening something fresh from her after Charmbracelet. I think this is too low but it's logical as many voters were more in favour of pop-ballads.

            You're Mine (Eternal) I like it but it's another not so inspired song from her, kind of following a formulaic approach. Still, it's a good song.

            Don't Forget About Us (Desert Storm Remix) [ft. Fabolous & Styles P) a great remix.

            • When Christmas Comes is so overrated. Very boring tbh.

              Say Somethin' should have dropped out long ago, far too high here.

              I'm pleasantly surprised to see All In Your Mind so high. It is definitely one of the best on the debut album.

              • I was low-key hoping Slay Somethin’ would make the main countdown, but its always been real divisive between the lambily so #146 doesn’t surprise me at all (tasteless foos ).

                Literally the song that made me a stan. I remember catching the video on BET (the whole month that it was on ) and thinking, “jdsghihkkjf this song is BOMB - so mysterious, sensual, and euphoric. There’s nothing out there that sounds like it! I wonder if her whole album is like this?” Ofc I was already aware of (and loved) all the other singles but for some reason it was SS that made me pull the trigger. I loved the album but more importantly, I got reacquainted with GOAT and the rest is history.

                Get Your Number and Say Somethin’ are two of her best songs of the last 15 years. The fact that GOAT Pt. 14 is higher than both.

                It’s anyone’s guess what my last 11 is.

                  • So many good songs in this batch!

                    Now That I Know is a taste of what Mariah was offering in her remixes, but in an album track that should have been a single. Even a promo single. Missed opportunity there.

                    All I Live For just grew and grew on me the more I listened to it. It has a sophistication that is more impressive having come from a young Mariah.

                    Heartbreaker / If You Should Ever Be Lonely (Junior's Heartbreaker Club Mix) could well have been an Ultimate 11 from me. What Mariah created here, the melody, the mashup, her voice, the backing vocals... just musical art.

                    Say Somethin' (ft. Snoop Dogg) a song that, yes, I agree does sound mysterious and sensual. There's something interesting about this song.

                    Cry could have been a 10 from me as I genuinely like it - very well crafted song and Mariah sounds great in it.

                    All In Your Mind is an interesting one - so catchy even if it's dated. I find myself singing the chorus to myself.


                    I agree with others who say GYN is annoying. It just doesn't do much for me.

                        Moving through the second batch of Bubbling Under songs are big ballads that fell too low to make it to the top 100!

                                    • I'm surprised to see Hark! so high up, out of all the Christmas tracks, even though it's a pretty solid record.

                                      I am happy to see Cool On You getting some love here. It's a brilliant record.

                                        • Loverboy (Firecracker - Original Version) I enojy it even better than the other original.

                                          Meteorite is great!

                                          Hark! The Herald Angels Sing / Gloria (In Excelsis Deo) probably my fav traditional christmas song behind O Holy Night.

                                          Heartbreaker (Remix) ft. Da Brat & Missy Elliott sooo looowwww such a fun and addictive remix!!!

                                          My All / Stay Awhile ft. Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz [So So Def Remix] ok, this one hurts to see so low... it's top10 imo. Such a sensual rendition of the song. If Jermaine & Mimi like this,then I like.

                                          Always Be My Baby (ft. Da Brat & Xscape) (Mr. Dupri Mix) another cool remix out :(

                                          • Disappointed Loverboy (Firecracker) isn’t higher. It’s my favourite version of the song, the chorus just seems stronger to me, I love it
                                            ...as I close my eyes, steady my feet on the ground.....

                                            • Heartbreaker, ABMB and My All remixes are all dope. HB is probably my 2nd or 3rd favourite remix.

                                              I've been saying this for years, honestly. I find it really strange when people say its formulaic and the same. The lyric structure is unique - no other song in her entire discog works the chorus and verses the same way as this song - and while the piano is very typical MC, the synths and drums on this aren't. And the 'bored' vocal comment I've never understood.

                                              I don't mind that people don't like it, or think its average, though. I'm happy to keeping it as my jam.

                                                • Long Ago not in the top 100 is a crime. Her most chocolate sounding song up to that point + one of the first times she worked with JD, which in and of itself is a landmark in her career when you consider what would happen 10 years later.

                                                  And as the good sis TheRealest said:
