    • TMB’s premiere was my first big stan moment. I had to convince my older cousin to call me out from school so that I could catch the world premiere of TMB on Hot 97 on my raggedy ass pocket radio . Fun times.

        • Delighted to see OHOMO so high. The best her voice has ever sounded tonally and I will not be told otherwise.

          • Obsessed and Touch My Body were good follow-up to We Belong Together. She kept good music going in those years. And she's probably the first and only one who mentioned YouTube in her lyrics, lol. So far so goood.

            Mariah decided to overkill Out Here On My Own. Too many unnecessary melismas, and vocal runs. She should have stayed true to the beautiful melody of the song, the way she did with I Still Believe. The song fit Mariah's voice perfectly. But owning the song?

            • I love Touch My Body, don't like Obsessed at all, such a dull song and did nothing to help the album anywhere. I would have much preferred if she had finished Imperfect, which is basically the same song with a far greater and more important message. I kinda felt that whole Eminem thing she did was beneath her, although I know some fans love it. The song never did anything for me.

              • Yeah, she had no business making the best diss song of all time. What she should have done instead was just sit back and take those nauseating tirades against her and her family. That’s practical.

                • Touch My Body that high? It's sooo painfully average.

                  Obsessed on the other hand is an anthem. It still annoys me how they messed up its single release and prevented it from being a UK smash.

                  • I was a little disappointed with CBPCH's placement, but then - it's a Christmas song, and a cover. It's actually done pretty well.

                    We're getting into the business end of the countdown and it's exciting (and moving slowly )

                    • I think it was my bad as I just sent yesterday to bm08 the 30-21 images! I'll try to finish them this week so he can adjust his own pace, but I relaly like the flow this thread got, bm08 did a great job and all the info he is capturing is very time consuming!

                      Without You seems low, I believe its one of her signature songs. Maybe there are other covers of hers better, but to be honest this one is THE cover. I still get a lot of people thinking this is actually her song and not a cover, that's how powerful her version is.

                      I Still Believe is great, I am surprise it's this high though.

                      Slipping Away breaking into the top40 was a surprise for me. I think it benefits from Rarities being still fresh in our minds. A great song.

                      Obsessed is great, it was a good move, a catchy song, nice video... but I don't generally go back to it.

                      TMB is the best possible single to kick off such a high profile era as Einstein. The video is superb, the song is fun and sensual. I was addicted to it when it was released and built up a lot of hype around the album.

                      OHOMO is a very solid track but a little overestimated. I was happy when it was released, but a couple of weeks later I was kind of over it. I like it, it's a great vocal rendition.

                        I'm just so curious so see the top 10!
                        Although I think I can guess most of them... maybe.

                        But this rate at least keeps the anticipation building.

                          Coming out of the Glitter era, really not surprised the vocals on it were outstanding.

                          The song is a bit bland to me at times though. I love when it comes on shuffle though

                            I love it so much. I had wanted a simple straight forward vocal line like that for so long where she just sings. It's one of my favorites tracks from her ever.

Mariah's soft and emotional vocals lift the song to another level. As I have probably said before, "Butterfly" is the one of the greatest album to just sit down, and relax to. It's the ultimate chill-out collection, and this song is the highlight. Mariah holds back in this personal, reflective and emotional ballad and sings such wonderful lyrics. This is a real hidden gem, and I know this is one of Mariahs favourites too. She performed it wonderfully on the Rosie ODonnell show in 1998.
