Don't dare come for VOL.
VOL is Mariah's most influential song of all time.
CLG never even reached #1.

VOL vs. CLG is like Mariah vs. Ariana

I seriously can't get over how this gal actively seems to "channel" MC!!! she sings too.....the vibe/mannerisms are down pat!!

the thing of it is....like who or what would hire impersonators of MC? I jsut cant see alot of people wanting to hire an impersonator...but hey....right here their lovin her!! I'm still warbling her stuff just to try to keep my ear and vocal tract in line....as far as impersonation that 's the holy grail none of us would ever achieve

but what a H*ll of a practice goal that is, eh!!! All Hail the Queen and kisses for Those who Impersonate Her!!hahahah

W O R D!!!

Absolue' WORD!!

...the Aural Arts Are Dying...

..think of the pics of the "Aliens"....which some say are us....coming back in time

they HAVE NO EARS!!! Then! they say they "communicate" telepathically instead of verbally

the future will have us all consuming nutrition by pills and straws....killing off the vocal tract and no voice/sound

we have digitized away our future by the power of our Eyes..that supposedly see reality...

.sad

I wouldn't say it killed the industry, but it's muddied the talent pool.

People often forget that music is a AURAL experience, not a visual one. Music is about vocals, production and songwriting. It's not about performance, image or choreography. Sure, they enhance the experience, but a good song is good with or without performance. Music doesn't NEED a video.

And while I do love music videos and while I enjoy Social Media, they've both taken focus away from the aural and given it to the visual. And what ends up happening is the music gets lost and people start to think that a flashy music video and a pretty Instagram account is what makes musical talent.
Apart from Adele and Lady Gaga, I really can't think of anyone from the current generation who I can truly call "musically talented".

Taylor Swift DOES write and produce her work but it's mostly rubbish.
Katy Perry writes and produces SOME of her work but is mostly manufactured from what I understand.
Rihanna is probably 98% manufactured.
Beyonce has half an army to do all the writing/production for her and 90% of her career relies heavily on performance.
Madonna...well see above.
Ariana Grande has a brilliant voice, but her writing/production are mostly precooked.
Demi Lovato...see Ariana.
Selena Gomez is a musical paraplegic.

Do note that I love most of the singers above, especially Rihanna and Ariana. I just don't like to confuse fandom with talent.

One thing I hate about American culture is celebrity worship. I love Mariah to bits, but I wouldn't be losing my ish over simply seeing her. Now, if she walked up to me and offered a job or some money, then I'd freak out.

I was only in the 5th grade and I also remember fake lyrics surfacing weeks before with VERY graphic lyrics and I was afraid that the song was going to be something I was not allowed to listen to. The song was nothing like I expected when I first heard it. Her 18th number one! Wow, time flies.
It introduced me to B.Scott. I think he's since taken the video down, but he made one of himself dancing to it when the song came out.

Could this be an avenue of getting more Mariah records on vinyl? Could MC show up to one of the tour dates?


So So Def 25 Coming This Summer Through SONY/Legacy/Certified Classics

Essential Compilation--Available Digitally or 12" Vinyl--Celebrates 25 Years of Music from Groundbreaking Atlanta Label


Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will commemorate the 25th anniversary of Atlanta's hottest hip-hop label with the release of So So Def 25 as a digital album coming this summer through Certified Classics, home of the undisputed classics of hip-hop and R&B from the 80s, 90s and 00s. A 12" vinyl collector's edition of So So Def 25 will also be available.

So So Def 25 includes essential smash hits, iconic remixes, and deep cuts from the label's quarter-century catalog and more.

...

The celebration of So So Def will continue throughout 2018 with Legacy Recordings set to press 12" vinyl reissues of select catalog titles and release additional digital content.

Plans for an all-star So So Def Tour are currently in the works with full details TBA.

Touch my body was the first Mariah single premiere I ever experienced.
I remember being on B96's main page, just waiting for them to play it.
Felt a little underwhelmed at first because i found it "safe," vocally speaking, but after the 5th spin I was hooked af.
Still think it's one of her catchiest songs ever.

The cheeky lyrics, them harmonies... It's just addictive af!
Happy 10th anniversary!

Totally agree. The talent pool is muddied and the music does get lost but its life in general I suppose. Image, aesthetics and the surface layer is all that matters thesedays unfortunately :roll:
