  • Mariah Herstory: On This Day [April 10th]

    Mariah Herstory
    What was happening in Mariah's (and the lambs!) World on this day?

    We'll look back on news, countdowns, discussions, photos on different calendar days regardless of year.

    What were you thinking then vs. what are you thinking now? Where were you when that song came out and was your first reaction what it is now?

    Join in the #MariahHerstory discussion.

    Currently looking at where we can get different sources of info. Right now will use:
    - UKMIX Mariah Topic
    - UKMIX Chart Archives
    - TRL archives
    - MariahNetwork Gallery
    - Social Media
    - Wikipedia

    Let me know if there are other sources we could use. It obviously won't be completely comprehensive but a sampling that helps with reflections, thoughts and humour.

    We'll get started on Monday!

      Genuinely loving this idea.
      She was kind of fragile and she had a lot to grapple with but basically she kept it all inside ...

        Ok, this is gonna be fun!


        • #5
          This sounds like a great idea!

              With no new music in sight, lambs resorted to their own remixes...

              So you think Mariah's your wife,

              You can find love,
              If you reach into your pants,
              And the emptiness you felt,
              Will dissapear,

              And then relief comes along,
              Yes the feeling is so strong,
              You forget about new songs,
              As you think about the girl in her thong,
              So when you can't think of anything else,
              Look at pornhub and be hard,
              And you'll finally see the truth,
              That a pornstar lies in you
              Yes it does, I know it does,
              A pornstar lies in you

              ThatGrapeJuice went to the streets to ask opinions about Mariah...

              Idol and album drama had lambs scratching their heads...

              So maybe we are looking at second Q3 of 2013 now, if no single has been chosen and there's no real 'plan'. Looks like AI won't be used to it's fullest potential. Siiigh, the fun of guessing producers, themes, songs etc is starting to wear off and the 20 page meltdowns when there is news (or no news) is getting tiresome to keep up with. Arrrgghhhhh MC please restore my lambdom and announce a single.

              But we don't really know what happened. We sure know how to extrapolate an entire situation as fact from a pretty vague statement from Liron lol.

              Why does the album need to be completed before there's a plan on how to promote it.

              That seems so dumb. U can know what ur going to do in a basic way.

              I hate how liron expects fans to trust Mariah and the label when they are 0 and 7.

              7 singles in a row have flopped.

              Just release the album and call it a day. I want to hear it already. I'm so over this drama of it being a hit. It seems to be getting in the way of the creative process.

              April 8th 2014

              Lambs were utterly confused about what the day held in store...

              Too much.

I was such a believer before triumphant, but from then one everything seems to be falling apart. Always so much confusion (I mean even during the triumphant era it was never clear if we were talking about a 1st single or just a promo single/random single/...). The only time it all had some structure was during the release of #beautiful, but let's be fair that one was already falling apart even before she had her injury. Now the delays come hand in hand with disappointing sales, performances,... They will need one hell of a master plan to clean up this mess tbh.

              And most importantly I hope the music doesn't disappoint me either. Working on an album for a longer time doesn't imply a better output, I hope we get a quality album at the end and not a disappointing album with a few good songs.

              I think it's safe to assume that their masterplan from triumphant on until now did more harm than good.

I can't just imagine everything not ready with a few weeks to go, but yet they still continuously mentioning the date may 6. If they really have loads of ironing to do as what most people are assuming, they could just push it back right now and stop mentioning May 6. It doesn't make any sense. :-?

              And this day brought with it multiple essays, including this one...

              the pathetic things actually is that most of her fans don't appreciate her making music, nor the song she releases. Why are they still here? Only to call certain songs flops? I bet that had WBT tanked, ppl would have long forgotten about it and degraded it.

              From T to YM they are all or were all smash hits in my world. The excitement I felt when I rushed home from uni that day, knowing that Mariah had just released a brand new track (it was AH at the time), was the best thing that happened in 2013 to me. I mean I have been a fan for over 20 years now and I have to admit that the sparks were dying down in between waiting, but oh boy did they come back when I learned about MCSummer2012 or the subsequent releases. I still shiver when I click on the link to download her latest song, I still can't sleep the night before that or the night before I go out and buy the latest album. That is what keeps me going sometimes, knowing of what a treat I can expect later this year. Too many ppl focus on her looks, her weight... certain interviews whatever. Too many "fans" do care an awful lot about the big hair, short skirts whatever. I don't. I only want the music and I also want her to be happy and well (as much as I want every human being to). But I don't constantly criticize her every move. Why would I? I like what she does, I'm a fan afterall. In the end, I don't remember certain interviews, I don't recall what she was wearing the other day or some years ago. All that I remember is the feeling I had when I listened to her music, when I saw her perform live or on my screen, I only remember the music and what it did to me.

              I wish more ppl would not always be that harsh on her. Nobody knows how long we will have her in our lives as a) the artist that she is or b) the human being walking among us. Two of my biggest idols und life influences already died, MJ and Whitney. And I am so glad that I never shaded them like other "fans" did. I'm a supporter, someone who also sees the person behind the make-up and public crap. I will cherish her as long as I will live. I may sometimes not like what she does, but I will always be here, I will always be the little kid who couldn't sleep the night before she releases something new and I will always be one of the first to spread the word of how amazing her latest outut is, on this forum and anywhere where ppl would listen.

              thank you #bye

              The absolute worst on Daydream is Open Arms. The live versions are far superior. One sweet day is also one of the weaker tracks on the album, but good nonetheless. It's probably aged the worst though.

              Let’s be honest the chances of Mariah scoring any big hits is pretty limited so hopefully she does some different things musically rather than building everything for radio

              • #8
                From all of this, the only one I could relate to is the socials from the 8th of April 2018.

                People were saying that the first part should be Glitter. But who would've thought that later that year Glitter will hit #1 on the US itunes chart 17 years after its release!
                She was kind of fragile and she had a lot to grapple with but basically she kept it all inside ...

                  OMG this SUCH a great thread! It’s nice to take a trip down memory lane in Lambland. Thanks for all the effort.

                  LMAO @ the confusion regarding the album/era in 2014. I remember pretty much all of us thinking the album would get pushed back to late 2014.

                  and ew @ those ugly necklaces she used to rock with casual clothing. instantly takes me back to the smella era

                      On This Day: April 9th

                      Take a look through the April 9th time capsule for various years. Do you remember how you felt about different moments?

                      April 9th 1994

                      Without You was at its peak of #3, while Hero sat at #26

                      Music Box was still top 10 on the chart

                      April 9th 2005

                      It's Like That was #24 on the Hot 100, while 50 cent ruled the chart

I think all her other number 1's were deserved.

                      I love "Don't Forget About Us". She sings it with much emotion. And I think the song is 100% R&B, not Pop. It's the best re-ash she did of "We Belong Together" as it went to #1, she tried keeping doing the same thing in E=MC2, but people had already past that.

                      And I hate the way Mariah acted in that video.
                      Plus, Fabulous & Styles P's rap sucked.
                      "Amnesia, Visa, Condoleeza"? :x No.

                      I also don't see why it constantly is compared to "WBT". They don't sound anything alike. They don't have similar production, and they aren't even about the same subject!

                      Sony should stop releasing compilations of Mariah. Her catalog sales are getting weaker and weaker with this compilations.

                      But this time it's been 100% confirmed, I see.

                      Celine Dion did a song with him on her new album as well. It didnt help her to get more attention and the song is literally one of the worst songs on the album :(

                      That song is going to be pure perfection.

                      There was high hopes for the upcoming album...

Both titles are currently scheduled for release on 5/6 and will bow on the HITS Building Album Sales Chart on 5/12. Here, meanwhile, are this week's key debuts:

                      Black Label Society (eOne) 25-28k
                      SoMo (Republic) 23-26k
                      MercyMe (Fair Trade) 20-22k
                      Martina McBride (Sharon's Rose/Vinyl Recordings) 20-22k

                      Hopefully its a summer anthem, perfect for the clubs

                                      Take a look through the April 10th time capsule for various years. Do you remember how you felt about different moments?

                                      April 10th 1993

                                      Unplugged sat at #111 on Billboard's 200 as Depeche Mode debuted at #1

                                      April 10th 1998

                                      April 10th 1999

                                      I Still Believe sat in the top 10 on the Hot 100 as TLC ruled

                                      #1s was still top 50 as Britney climbed to #1 on Billboard's 200

                                      April 10th 2003

                                      Mariah & Busta shoot the "I Know What You Want" music video

                                      Mariah attends the Blink 102.7 launch party in New York

                                      April 10th 2006

                                      Mariah spotted on vacation in Antigua

                                      April 10th 2010

                                      A great debate about compilations was triggered by Sony releasing Essential MC

                                      That includes the ones from the '00s...

                                      The problem is that her discography is so good.

                                      She almost has too many hits though. If they want to do Mariah justice, they might just have to do a triple disk set...and that's expensive.

                                      Lambs were still desperate for music news...and were organising

I'll take new music news over anything that isn't related to her music and artistry. I don't have any expectations, they're very low, but I do hope she'll deliver at least some amazing songs!
