Vanishing was great. She's had several great songs from her first three or four LPs that were not released as singles that were superior to many of the ones that were.
Gawd. I love 80s/90s music very much, but I never ever got why this song was such a big deal. There are songs on Charmbracelet (yes I went there gurl), that are more appealing.
Several critics have interpreted the lyrics to be Mariah singing to God, and I can agree because listening to this extraordinarily astounding song is nothing short of a religious experience. This Mariah needs to come back!
Never gonna happen OP, she can no longer sing like that
Her voice is shot. She can't do this kind of thing anymore. I was a huge fan of Vision of Love back then.
She had her chance and blew it. Her future entails game shows and Celebrity Apprentice.
Biggest selling female artist of the soundscan era.
More number ones than any female artist.
Had the biggest billboard hit of the 2000's with WE BELONG TOGETHER.
Suffice it to say R14 is completely clueless. She's etched her place in pop music history.
OMG, we have mimibot, joining janbot, madbot, and britbot!!!
You got that right, R16
Ehh - I thought it was a Whitney ripoff and it was. Vocal gymnastics.
Never understood the appeal with her so-so looks and always showing the right side of her face - as if that side is sooooo much better. She's average in every way.
R15, the "soundscand era"? How thin are you gonna slice that piece of pie?
r14, what in the hail? That makes no sense. She didn't blow shit.
In addition to her earlier (mental? medication?) troubles, she delivered Moesha and Mongolia by caesarean section- which usually erases and octave or two from your diaphram.
Luckily, this coincided with the advent of Autotune, so now she can sqeak and squeal (electronically) forever.
Is it typical of a singer to blow out their voice when they are only in their early 40s? I thought Mariah always took good care of her voice.
Mariah and Janet were both on the same label, Island Def Jam for a little bit. I think it was around the time of that photo at r21. LA Reid really killed any possibility of these ladies topping the charts for one last time.
She smoked too much and her voice is shot now.
She can't, but she sure could.
I am not a huge fan, but "Vision of Love." was a great song and some fine singing.
I liked her best when she was only a Diva in training, when there was still something natural and raw in her performance.
Here is Mariah, on Saturday Night Live.
