I love Mariah's Melt Away from Daydream. It has the 90's trademark sound arrangement of love ballads, superb vocals with no use of autotune or Melodyne, a relaxing pace and adorned with romantic lyrics. One of Mariah's hidden gems. What are some of yours? Please share.

One of my all-time favorites from her (and it was my favorite for a long time) is the cover of "Skylark", she did for the "Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil" soundtrack. It's sublime, and features her upper register. I hope at some point to see her live.

R124 Glad that you liked it. Cyndi was best known for the Laverne & Shirley theme song which appeared on the same album as the song posted above. It's rumored Gary Marshall heard it & approved of its usage. Cyndi affiliated herself in the early 90s with Pat Robertson's 700 Club in which she discussed how she had to deal with her career collapse. I don't think she is a LGBT advocate but hey you can listen to these artists for free now & put your money to a good cause like the Trevor Project right?

R185: agree When I Saw You is one of Mariah’s best. I think the reason she’s never sung it live is probably more to do with her seeing it as one of her Tommy-made-me-write-a-schmaltzy-ballad-for-housewives songs though than not being able to sing it (though of course since about 1997 she wouldn’t have been able to do it justice).

Absolutely, r331. [italic]Music Box[/italic] had like three or four good songs on it; her subsequent albums also suffered from the same problem. [italic]Emotions[/italic] was her masterpiece. When she got all hip-hop after leaving Tommy Mottola, I liked her music less and less. I know that they started having problems in their marriage at some point, but not sure what album she was working on when all of that went down.

R333 I think it was Butterfly. The titular single was about the end of marriage with Tommy. The album was also her transition to RnB and Hip-Hop. I think Butterfly was an awesome album. It has the remains of the old Mariah with ballads like Butterfly and My All written with Afanasieff and then, the new Mariah with urban/RnB tracks like Honey and Breakdown written with P. Diddy.

TEOM is one of her strongest vocal performances to date. One of the features of that album is that she doesn't overdo her breathy vocals and that quick transition thing she does between breathy and clear vocals which can be quite annoying sometimes. Her vocals in TEOM is so sharp, resonant and effortless contrary to that uncomfortable raspy shit she had in some of her previous works. I forget what era that is. But I remember her tribute performance to Patti Labelle singing If only you knew/Somewhere over the Rainbow. Those was her worst vocals to date. Compared to that, in TEOM, the belting notes in Mine Again and Stay the Night, the climax to WBT, It's like that and Don't Forget About Us are fucking breeze to the ears. Her best vocals IMO.

I knew the English version for years and didn’t think much of it, then heard the French version and loved it. It’s 10 times more emotional and beautiful I think.

R343: love that song too. I saw her perform in Nice a few years ago and she did a mainly French set list (of course) and performed all three of the songs above. It was almost a year to the day of the Nice terrorist attack when that bastard ran over all those people with a truck and she referenced it a few times throughout. The songs really captured the sadness and grief in themselves though. I almost felt like I was intruding being there and not being a local. It was a real privilege to see her perform in French, at that time, in that place.

This gem by Angela Bofill. Beautiful lady and a great singer who unfortunately, along with a few other female vocalists, got plowed over by the Whitney freight train in the eighties. This one still sounds contemporary

Springsteen's haunting "Meeting Across the River" sounds like Scorsese's Mean Streets put to music. I imagine the narrator did in fact "blow it", and he and his pal "Eddie" ended up *in* the river soon after the song's conclusion.

Sorry R373 but a person can only post about 6 videos at a time before the thread will be closed for spamming.
I'm not a paying member so I can only post at certain times & prefer to get my 6 out before I'm stopped again.
Bonnie isn't my fav but I'm familiar with her songs as I had siblings who listened to the above 2 albums back in the 80s (besides who is gonna post songs that they're unfamiliar with? LOL!). The OP wants "beautiful songs that aren't well known by popular artists" & the above 6 tunes fit the bill.
No one has posted any of hers yet & someone on the DL might like her beautifully raspy voice as a change of pace to some of the above singers.
|by Anonymous||reply 374||July 20, 2021 12:30 AM|
Then why not just pick one of the six? Why the deluge? The more you inundate, the more you seem like some obsessed fanatic, and the less likely anybody will listen to any of them.
Somebody bombards the thread with tons of songs by Belinda Carlisle, or Mariah Carey, or whoever, I'm fucking NOT listening to a single one.
Somebody posts a single song by one artist...I know they've given it some thought, and they genuinely want to share it with others. They're not here just to shit out endless links to their favorite diva's filler tracks.

Thank you, r375. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Here's a lesser tune by the Ronettes. It was a single, but the British Invasion had begun by the time it was released, so it charted for maybe a week.

R372: I think you mean well and I love an enthusiastic music fan (ok not an insane Madonna/Janet/etc troll) but R373/R375 is right. The over-posting is off putting and I’m now skimming past the posts -and I love half these artists you’re posting songs by. Just pick one or two a day and we’ll be more likely to give them a listen.
|by Anonymous||reply 377||July 20, 2021 1:21 AM|
Sorry R375 As I mentioned earlier I'm no an obsessed fanatic with Bonnie Tyler & that's a dumb charge to throw out at someone who you don't know. I posted them for convenience for someone who is too busy with work, kids or spouses to search for new music that fits the OP's requests. I love new music & I'm usually listening to some while I post my 6 videos.
This thread is filled with nice things & you & R376 seem too picky to enjoy anything. I'm at the opposite side that you both are on. I've just got back from mowing my yard & you've posted nothing music wise in the past hour & I'm not interested in R375's Ronettes tune (which I've heard before) so I'm bored with this thread right now.
I don't care if someone like the OP posts 6 songs by Mariah or Janet as I only bought Mariah's first 3 albums & nothing from Janet after her boobs cover album in the early 90s so I'm curious to what I've been missing from them since.
I also usually pick only 1 track from an album as the most beautiful to post but like I mentioned with Pat Benatar some of her albums (Precious Time?) had no beautiful tracks that I wanted to post. I'm not obsessed with her either but one of my siblings was back in the 80s. I'm also not obsessed with a-ha but I had a friend (who died before they turned 27) who was crazy about them. I posted them as a tribute.
If you don't listen to any of my tunes (& the same goes for R375) do you think I really give a damn? Folks who want a new artist or a new song will give something a try if not I won't lose any sleep over these tunes. I'm not getting any royalties or DL $$$ from this. These are stressful times & someone out there might connect to a song & take their mind off of their troubles for a couple of minutes.

Most of the "popular" artists mentioned on this thread are pop divas that haven't been relevant in 20 or 30 years. The reason the songs are lesser known is because most of them are shitty songs that weren't popular when they were originally released.

You can easily post 6 songs in about 4 minutes R388.
It doesn't take hours at a time if you know what you're doing & have the songs ready to go (like on a YT playlist or some other site) when you're allowed to post again.

R436: this is the type of song definitely deserving of a place on this thread. It’s bizarre it’s from some weird unknown guy’s concept album about beer. It’s a new song but Belinda’s voice sounds like it’s from the late 80s/early 90s. I’ve not been a fan of the two or three new pop songs she’s recorded in the last decade or so but this is great.

L. Girl does count R477. It's beautifully done by a popular artist & is one of his lesser know hits (I doubt that it would show up on his top 20 or even top 25 hit song list). The video means nothing as most folks have probably never seen it (I didn't even know it had one). Annie L. made videos to all of her songs on an album posted above around R460 but that doesn't make them "well known hits" either.

In no way does Jim Croce's Operator qualify for this thread.
And the Tatjana original Santa Maria is infinitely superior to Samantha Fox's.

"What a Good Boy" - Barenaked Ladies.
