  • Hero is a classik sure, not to mention a GP/Karen favorite, but if Kween has to be labored to perform it, that’s not a good sign.
    Greatest Of All Time

    • I've fallen behind again!

      Oh Santa! - super festive!
      Got To Be Real (Live) [with Patti Labelle] - incredible! I think I gave this a 9/10.
      For the Record - the self-discography references are divine.
      Make It Happen - uplifting gem.
      Prisoner - criminally low!
      When I Saw You - saccharine, yes, but entirely too low.
      With You - flawless songwriting and delivery.
      Faded - immaculate songwriting and delivery.
      Now That I Know - this deserved more!
      Cry - HOW. IS. THIS. NOT. TOP. 100?
      Alone in Love - I love this.
      Meteorite - this always puts me in a better mood.
      Clown - I thought y'all loved this song.
      Crybaby - incredible song. 10/10-worthy, but I probably gave it 9/10.
      Dedicated - I thought y'all loved this one, too.
      My All (Morales "My" Club Mix) - one of my fave MC remixes!
      If It's Over - among my top 10 MC faves.
      Side Effects - that pen game. Whew.
      You Don't Know What to Do - surprised to see this so much higher than "Dedicated".
      Joy to the Word - dem vocals tho.
      Bringin' on the Heartbreak - presently surprised to see this so richly appreciated. It's a gorgeous cover.
      Vanishing - among her more overrated songs.
      Melt Away - gorgeous!
      Hero - this song has saved lives. It means so much to me.
      Outside - relatable.
      One Sweet Day - how did this happen?
      Your Billboard Top Ten: #1 Good 4 U [11 weeks] + Drake invasion

      Your heart is coloured with the love wrapped in the brilliant blue sky above, the breadth of the jewelled oceans, and the pure heat of the golden sun. And your heart is home to the cosmic creation that is you.

        She probably hates the fact that it was not intended for her to sing in the first place

          Only 14 songs managed to get a 7 as the lowest score, and OSD is one of them. This is its actual composition of votes:
          7: 4 votes
          8: 10 votes
          9: 2 votes
          10: 6 votes

          2 songs that are already out are also part of this elite group:
          Oh Santa! at #61 and H.A.T.E.U. at #54! So we'll have 11 more songs to come from this list!

          Fan trivia: only 1 song managed to score all 8+ rates... which one do you think it is??? Little help, it's not GOAT!

            Having revisited both songs and having had YDKWTD on repeat the last hour, I would like to retract this surprise, please.

            The Roof?

            I feel like the fans give OSD a lot of grief, so I thoroughly expected it to be outside the top 100. Glad to see it's been more warmly embraced by the voters in this.

              Yes, the original Fantasy is everything. Such a strong chorus, the song sounds fresh even today, and it's just so much fun.

              But I still like the remix... not to the same degree, but it still has such a great sound and ODB's opening is iconic all on its own.

                      • I used to be a lot more lenient with her Karen material. Without You is fine but I don’t use it anymore. Her best cover is definitely now I Still Believe and I’m glad it eeked ahead.

                          • Without You is low! It’s a masterclass of a cover.

                            Comment


                            • Her version of I Still Believe refined the original. That's how you pay respect to the woman who helped you be a singer, staying true to the original beautiful melody, and killing it! Happy that this song and When You Believe are on the same album. I Still Believe still belongs in my Top 10 still.

                              Without You- I just listened to the Badfinger original, and also Harry's and Air Supply's versions. But Mariah owned this song. Her whispery delivery in the beginning set the tone. She conveyed the meaning of the song very well from start to finish through her emotive delivery as well as giving it soul.

                              • Without You is a classic but I’ve never really liked it that much. SA is a brilliant track.

                                      • Shame BOTH ranked so low. Back in the day just about everyone knew that if you typed BOTH in capital letters you meant the Mariah cover of "Bringing On The Heartbreak". Also stunned to see "Hero" bow out so incredibly low - though I guess it might rank low with serious fans due to all the rest of us loving it so much.

                                          i hope she releases the song on itunes 2 weeks from now..so she could keep her record for most weeks at no.1 (14 weeks)this decade

                                          The Black eyed Peas is already no. 1 for 11weeks 3 more weeks then they'll be at a tie.

                                          so hype it first on radio for the next 2 weeks then release it digitally the third week..it will surely hit no.1!

                                          coz so far there's no other song that can seem to stop BOOM BOOM POW at the TOP!

                                              Love this song so much, and I loved it when she got that gun out!

                                                The more I listen to this, the more I'm convinced it's up there with her best ballads - the vocals are so raw and stunning.

                                                  • Out Here... is nice but it should not be higher than 3 career-definers.
