    Oh no, i wanted Caution in top 10. Still happy that it got so far, speaks volumes for the song being fan favorite.

    I also like Heartbreaker from this batch, the video is iconic.

    How can one of the best vocals ever committed to record get a 6 from anybody?!

    And #B getting top 10?

    I mean, sure, I gave it a 9... I like it a lot! But I'm so surprised.

    Caution higher than Breakdown and Heartbreaker? I love it but c'mon!

    Breakdown is in my personal top 3. O Holy Night is my favorite Christmas song ever, so beautiful.

    I remember hearing that song in 2008 for the first time ever when I was working in retail and I physically stopped what I was doing in the aisle due to the vocals.

    What can I say, three gorgeous songs. The music alone can satisfy me. Put Mariah's vocal touches, its fireworks. Wonderful positive lyrics as well.

    WYB- Most powerful duet especially from 2020 onward.
    "Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill coronavirus."

    LTW- Mariah's vocal transitions between her whispery vocals to full voice were simply amazing.
    "Who could've foreseen. In you I'd find the place
    I belonged forever."


    Butterfly- This song keeps its parent album evergreen. It takes me to the clouds as well. I was wondering why the horses were in the music video instead of butterflies, eh? I can see it now. It's in the lyrics dahhling.
    "Wild horses run unbridled or their spirit dies."

    My 11 points:

    30 - "Can't Let Go"
    16 - "Lead The Way"
    15 - "Butterfly"

    Not bad.
    Actually, 11 points from me deserves "The Roof", "Close My Eyes", "Love Takes Time", "Till The End Of Time" and much more. It was so hard to choose.

    I'm glad she's released this. "Lead The Way", "Never Too Far" and "Reflections" are amongst her best songs. A shame some dig at her for not stepping outside her comfort zone but when she did no one was there for her.

    Well, we/you could have done it like in Miss Universe where the highest and lowest scores are eliminated and the rest are averaged, thereby removing certain biases.
    Ok, that was a pretty girly example... I can give a sports example: in gymnastics they used to remove the lowest and highest scores... ok, that wasn't any less girly!

    It's understandable that some voters may be more likely to rate some of the big songs lower due to familiarity and over exposure. I tried not to let that phase me when rating the songs.

    It's an interesting exercise really, and I'm very curious to see the ratings of the top songs.

    It's interesting to comparte Betcha with historic fan favs and household names such as Hero and AYNAF... the thing I find in the votes is that those big songs actually got better rates from many voters, but also they brought some members that kinda rated low the big ones, so the average was pushed down.
    Betcha got no 11s but got all 7+ ,while Hero got 1 11s and 9 10s but also 1 3s, 1 4s and 2 6s; and Anytime got 1 11s, 10 10s but also 1 5s

    So Betcha may seem no strong one in comparisson to the big names, but it was more consistent in the rates, while big ones always bring some members that are tired of it being in every countdown/video montage/etc and may rate it low.

    And there goes one of my 11s, EFA. It’s always been a favourite of mine but I think after reading the book, I like it even more now. It’s both understated and epic, haunting and beautiful, a true masterpiece in my eyes.

    Surprised to see BGK in the top 20 while ATYNAF and the staple that is Hero miss out but it’s all down to personal taste, Mariah really has something for everyone.

    That's cause ATYNAF deserved top 20!

    There are a few songs in the top 20 that surprise me to be honest.
    Not that I hate or dislike them... just didn't expect that.

    I just love almost everything she puts out. almost.

    BGK is so high wow... the one that got a way along with Migrate.

    FLAB is phenomenal. such powerful message, lyrics, vocals. I wish one day Mariah would sing it live and give it justice. it's way too messy with all the lipping parts jumping around...

    EFA is hunting and beautiful. I am very moved by it. happy to see it ranked in the top 20!
