30 years ago today, Mariah Carey's "Emotions" hit #1 on the hot 100!

it stayed atop the charts for 3 weeks.

It was her 5th #1 single

I was a very young gay child at the time and remember instantly falling in love with the song. There was nothing like it on the radio.

I also loved her early 90s look. This was before her breast implants. She had her natural tall but slender figure, her beautiful long curly brown hair. I was so disappointed when she started dyeing her hair blonde and straightening it.

My gawd. Is she still shilling her unimaginative garbage where her 90s songs sound exactly like her mid 2000's songs which sound exactly like her 2010's songs? All her shit sounds the same!

And now she's ghosting her own tracks live, becasue she can't hit those screeching dolphin notes anymore!!!!

Someone retire this hack!!!

Fantasy is the only Mariah Carey song I've ever really liked but I am nostalgic about Emotions, too, OP. It was on top for weeks and weeks during one of my junior high years and I can't hear it without suddenly being back there at my locker, all awkward and covered in acne and in love with a classmate who loved my best friend instead of me.

Right there with you, OP.

I still love “Vision of Love”. I remember seeing her on SNL and getting goosebumps from it. Unbelievable, amazing live performance. It’s like Whitney’s National Anthem.

Nobody does that now. Nobody.

Agree, OP. She was this little petite waif with a titanic voice.

Now she’s a heifer with nada.

But she was really something in her prime.

She was an opportunist who slept with the president of the record label to secure a record contract. Typical Hollywood grifting.

I love her "Emotions" and "Best of My Love" by The Emotions.

r8, yes, of course, because a young, beautiful woman with one of the most amazing voices ever would have never received a recording contract anywhere else.

Some of the most forgettable "hits" in pop history.

Of course MC IS impaired, she would never have hired that Russian grifter if she wasn't drunk.

Imagine being the children of Mariah and Nick Cannon. I hope I live long enough to read those tell-alls.

Actually someone does, R6.
