    I don't often show "I Still Believe" much love, so it's refreshing to see you highlighting one of Mariah's "lesser" 90's hits (aka it didn't go to No. 1). The thing that usually pops into my mind about this song is its boobtastic single art (not shamin, just sayin). Well, and the fact that it seemed slightly shady of her to cover (and completely eclipse) Brenda's ONLY hit as a "tribute" so now the song will forever be associated with Mariah instead. Granted, it might not have been Mariah's choice to make her version into a single. Any thoughts on the Pure Imagination remix?
    • On one hand, it's always great to have "Breathin" around...but that, combined with "I Still Believe" and "In My Head"s recent domination, has me wondering if life has taken a messier turn lately. Not to over-analyze and desperately try to connect every hit here to your personal life, of course Just want to check in/reach out for my own curiosity's sake as well...

    Yet another chart that's beyond belief, Akini!

    Yeah, I never did any digging to verify the source, but it was particularly shocking since the song is barely six months old. It hasn't even gone through the full award season year yet.

    A co-worker of mine was humming and singing "I Still Believe" yesterday, so that brought it to the fore for me. It's not her finest, but it's gorgeous still. I don't remember the Pure Imagination remix, so I'll have to revisit it.

    On the plus side, I met up with a really cool guy lately, one without any of the...complications of the other guy, and we had a fun night. It's really amazing some of the lives people are out here living.

    On the negative side, work is kinda killing me. I've worked seven days straight for the last three weeks, and I'm going to have to do the same this weekend. Once this month ends, I'll be able to...breathe a bit.

    Yes! She released a couple albums before the show (one non-seasonal and one seasonal) - this is the song that introduced me to her.

    Bad Romance was my #1 song of 2010

    Ah, okay. I think I got through the first season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, but I stopped afterwards because it really wasn't for me.

    Ah, good pick!

    No rush/pressure (forgive the video quality. I couldn't find any uploads of the official video on YouTube). I'm still inclined toward the album version, but I do appreciate her re-recorded-vocals remixes that feel like a truly fresh take on the originals (in addition to the famous sample in this case).

    Guess you've been taking "Thank U, Next" to heart Less-complicated sounds like a definite improvement to me!

    21+ days straight?!? Usually "killing me" is an exaggeration, but it seems like they're literally trying in this case They won't succeed, of course, but damn...it's probably not the smartest move to burn-out one of their finest employees. SMH.

    • Glad to see that work hasn't managed to completely to suck the air out of you yet!
    • Your "I Still Believe" support and the "A No No" video put me in a Mariah mood (especially Caution) earlier this week. I shouldn't have been so quick to dismiss the "Giving Me Life"-"The Roof" comparisons back when the album dropped, but I think there's something about the production that makes "The Roof" a much more engaging/captivating listening experience for me.
    • I'm (pleasantly) blindsided by that "Terrified" debut! It's EASILY in my Top 5 from Unfortunately, Terror Jr (Top 3, really, alongside "Heaven Wasn't Made For Me" and "Happy Place"). Speaking of "Happy Place," that one's been absent here for a little while (not that I mind much, since I figured its disappearance meant you were feeling less alone, and it makes this "Terrified" entry even more of a fabulous surprise).

    Yet another chart that helps me breathe easy, Akini!

    Ah, it's awful!

    I guess Ari has impacted me more than I realised.

    Yeah, everyone is pretty much overwhelmed at this stage of busy season, but once March is over, things should return to a manageable level.

    Yeah, but how long did it take for you to connect with "The Roof"? "Giving Me Life" is still only four months old. Of course, I also think "The Roof" is in another league, but "Giving Me Life" is so incredibly lush, too!

    The "Terrified" video was on my 'Watch later' list on YouTube for ages. I finally got around to getting through a lot of the videos on that list, and "Terrified" was one of them. I really liked it.

    Some really strong tunes!
    Great #1!

    Still loving Carly's "Run Away With Me". A shame her new songs don't come close at all to this and other "Emotion" tracks.

    Nice to see some 00s classics with "Just Dance", "Love Story" and "Need You Now" <3

    This top 20 is an excellent playlist. Some of Madonna's finest tunes and Sia, and Gaga, and Need You Now .

    Have you had a chance to hear Emeli Sande's latest What do you think of it?

    Agreed! "Run Away with Me" is one of the best pop songs ever, in my opinion, so it's a shame that post-Emotion she hasn't come close to capturing the magic from that era.

    I have to thank CZB's decade-end PARADE chart for reminding me of my love for "Need You Now".

    Ah, glad to hear you're so pleased with yesterday's chart!

    I haven't heard Emeli's new song yet. I have to check it out!

    I find it so strange that Diamonds is one of the few Rihanna songs that still sounds very fresh today.
