Still can't believe this went to #3 on the AC chart. :o This is as urban as adult contemporary music will ever get. :cry:

Crazy because back then it didn't sound THAT urban. This is really a timeless classic :( I don't know anyone that doesn't like it.

This album has aged very well and made her relevant to a newer generation too :P

It really is a great RnB album even though I prefer E=MC2.

This is a great song but success aside I don't think it's the best single she released in the 2000's. I wouldn't even say it's the best song on the album.

As a consumer of music I would say a song you still listen to with pleasure many years after it was released and it still makes you almost as happy as when you first fell in love with it.

I do not follow the charts so I have no idea how Top 20 looks now but could be hard to find two or three songs I would like.

There is a game on UKMix where we rank songs from Top 10 every week and usually I like one or none.

For me, it's a great song is a song that lives on forever. Like Vision Of Love, We Belong Together.
But also Without You. It had a life before Mariah sang it and still is a much loved song today.

Here in the Netherlands we have a songlist once a year which is voted by the people.
It has huge hits, but also songs that didn't chart at all.

I don't know.... I hear a lot of Mary J. Blige in there (the kween of urban/ghetto music and one of Mimi's biggest influences), who in turn would release her answer to "We Belong Together" later that year. 8-)

The Mary J influences are more evident on certain portions of the verses and the final bridge (before the iconik belt :cry: ) than anything else. Some of the lyrics are also hoodrat extraordinaire enough to fit on a Mary J song. :lol:

People make up stuff as soon as they hear about a new title.

I've done so too. Years ago, when Madonna was about to release Who's That Girl, I wrote a lyric and told my sister I had heard the new Madonna song and I even sang it for her. She didn't believe me... :lol: :lol: :lol:

The last 45 seconds or so :cry: :cry: :cry:
Unlike other things that wither, she preserves. She’s a constant in a world of relentless flux. She’s a beacon of immortality. Bitch, she’s Madonna.
