Hello game lovers! I present you a new one: it's up to you to decide, every round, if you prefer the current single from the mentioned artist or the retro hit.

So the rule is quite simple, pick only ONE. The song that's on charts (Billboard Hot 100 or UK Top 100) right now or a randomly picked single that was any time ago in the same charts.

I'll try and update two times a week with new acts.

And to start with a UKMix favorite... Mariah Carey!

    Title: #Beautiful ft. Miguel
    Year: 2013
    Album: TBA
    Billboard peak: #24


    Title: Never Forget You
    Year: 1994
    Album: Music Box
    Billboard peak: #3

In this round, what's the best song: the brand new (RIGHT NOW) or the one from 1994 (BACK THEN)?

"Never Forget You". As a matter of fact, I'd say that most of Music Box is better than "#Beautiful".

I love Mariah's voice a lot , but not that much of a fan of her songs tho !

So I've heard few outstanding songs recently ! And like Never Forget You but its not my type. It might be better than #B but I don't feel like playing it anymore, so #Beautiful !

Nothing beats classic Mariah to me so I'm going to be completely biased about this, so I choose "Never Forget You". "#Beautiful" was cute for a moment but I'm already over it now which is a surprise to me considering I still love Triumphlop and Almost Charted. :lol:

I'd pick anything of Music Box over the new track.

I choose beautiful as I find never forget you boring and overrated like most of the music box album

Most are aware of how much more appealing I find her earlier career.

However, of these two songs - I much prefer #Beautiful

I pick " I'll never forget you. I'll never let you out of my heart. You will always be here with me. I'' hold on to the memories baby".

Anything she produced in her 90s can easily triumph her 00s singles (except for few). I was obsessed with her in the 90s. :oops: Now, i'm just a casual fan or her :lol:

"Never Forget You" - Although this is one of her weaker 1990s songs (I don't know why this particular one was chosen), Mariah's glorious past painted her legacy.

Back then, easily. She was really great in the 90's, nothing she's done lately can compare.
