Fantasy Remix deserves to be one of her signature songs.
The original is much better.
You must be on bath salts. The original is cute, but the remix is an event.

The original has one of her best hooks ever. The remix can never match it IMO as it leaves out the brilliant chorus.

That's a shame. She hasn't come again near where you live?

I hope to add a Christmas concert to my list someday.

Nope.
I was going to attend the South America Leg of the SSF Tour (just on the day of my birthday :evil: ) and they cancelled the show at last minute due an issue with the promoters... That was late October from last year.

I agree about the chorus! I miss the chorus from the original on the remix, however, the bridge replacing the chorus is GENIUS. I suppose both versions are respectively, great pop & R&B songs. So for fans of either genre the song can be the best of both worlds. Fantasy is actually the song that made me a lamb. I was intrigued by her use of the sample and I decided to explore her catalogue after that :D

IMO the original Fantasy is one of the greatest pop songs of all-time and the remix is one of the greatest hip hop songs of all-time.

That song is just EVERYTHING. Would be a #1 if released today, fight me :lol:

I've seen her live twice - both during the charmbreacelet era

First in 2002 for her performance at my local jingle ball.

Then again the following year during her tour.

"Last Kiss" is really good. I wish this was more recognized.

Same. I was going to attend my first Mariah concert in NZ - it was the Butterfly tour and she was coming Down Under for the first time. I woke up super early, took the morning off work and was second in line and waited hours in the cold...and got front row tix! Then she cancelled the NZ concert... (Which I now know was because she was told to get back to the US for a movie which didn't even proceed..sonshe cancelled for nothing and she was angry about that). Didn't get to see her until the Charmy tour in London, but by then the public thought she was a has-been and she didn't even fill the small Wembly arena... :cry:

Last Kiss is terrible, and its obscurity is well-deserved.

This climax is suicide. And why hasn't this user corrected the London and Paris dates - they're meant to be listed the other way around.

I'm so glad bartending school is paying off! #cheers to the haters there's so much more coming !!
