It is interesting how her international signature songs are different from those in the U.S.

Many of the songs that made a great impact here have lower YouTube views than some of these old ballads that I never hear anymore

Europe's "Without You," Asia's "Angels Cry," and Brazil's "I Wanna Know What Love Is" views seem so distorted from over here :lol:

how would you explain the song getting a quarter million views per day now... while the songs you mentioned - in some cases - stall at 40k?
Most of the views are probably coming from other countries besides the US. And it only recently started getting more views. If you ask people under 25 what their favorite Mariah song from the 90s is, no one is going to say OSD.
F*ck off and lose my number.

... it doesn't need to be anyone's favourite song.. to determine whether or not it is forgotten.

Huh?

Did y’all not understand what I posted? Forget the word favorite. Most people under 25 don’t know OSD the way they do her other 90s hits. I actually like OSD.

Ukpiss is so annoying. Bye.

Tbh, her biggest hits in Europe are still Without You and Hero. These are the songs that most people associate with Mariah and they still get played on the radio. One Sweet Day just isn't that big here.

Some people act like just because OSD is her longest running #1 in the US we should all worship it :lol: it's one of my least favorite #1s from her. I appreciate the message of the song but it's not all that. IMO

Without You and I'll Be There were her two #1 hits here. But One Sweet Day was huge too. It went to #2. It is her third biggest hit.
Although Hero was a top 10 hit, she had several bigger hits in our country:
Vision Of Love, Emotions, Dreamlover, Endless Love, All I Want For Christmas Is You, Fantasy, Honey, When You Believe, Hearbreaker, I Know What You Want, We Belong Together, Get Your Number...
Despite this, I do agree Hero is one of her best known songs here, but it is defenitely not her biggest hit.

My favorite song from the Music Box album wasn't on the US version, but it was on the international version of the album it was "Everything Fades Away." It kind of broke my heart to be honest.

"Record companies always have their rules. They always feel like there's too many songs on an album or not enough songs on an album or not enough of this kind of song on an album. It's usually a decision made by a corporate mind and they're usually wrong. "Everything Fades Away" was one of the favorites that many Europeans always say and I had wished it went on the American release.
A(WO)MEN!!! One of Mariah's greatest songs PERIOD.
I see no lies here.

'Everything Fades Away' is in my Top 10 by her. One of her greatest hidden gems.

She looked so good here.
And she was quite articulated taking in consideration that this was during the Jigsaw Era - despite VocalFryRiah.

Meanwhile... give me a 20 minute version of the song and I'll be happy!

I managed to get like 20 different remixes from Mariah Remasters (I think) from youtube - ultimate playlist.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I have grown to like it. It was lucky, it was the only new MC song at the time and there was no follow up for ages.
No competition made me play it more than if it had been just an album track. I actually like it now. :D

I've just finished watching TAOM Tour DVD... and I cannot believe that BIIM shaded her in early 2017 like that bc they really seemed to truly like each other... what a shame.

How does One Sweet day compare to.... Puff daddy - I'll be missing you and Charlie Puth - see you again

All songs spent over 14 weeks at #1
All songs are about death

How does the recurrent airplay compare?
