Let's start on the top 30, then. We don't have a song at #30 because we have two songs at #29. Let's start with the one that a certain someone has been calling for to leave for some time now... 29. (tie) You're Makin' Me High (T'empo Mix) Toni: #24 of 46 Average: 7.569 Highest scores: 10 x 2 (@Ana Raquel, @Oleander), 9.5 x 1 (@Trouble in Paradise) Lowest scores: 2 x 1 (@Euphoria), 4 x 1 (@Sprockrooster) My score: 8 Trajectory: 6 ballots: #57 12 ballots: #37 18 ballots: #34 24 ballots: #36 27 ballots: #29 Another success story of this rate is the T'empo Mix of You're Makin' Me High, which becomes only the third of the six dance remixes in the rate to leave us. You're Makin' Me High, the lead single from Toni's second album Secrets, debuted a sleeker, sexier look for an artist previously more associated with heartbreak ballads. It also helped diversify Toni's commercial appeal by becoming her first single to hit #1 on the US Dance Club Songs chart, and the double A-side of You're Makin' Me High and Let It Flow became her first #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and her first platinum single in the US. I chose the T'empo Mix for this rate because the the international special edition of Secrets (as well as the Japanese edition and the Brazilian platinum edition) included this mix alongside the Classic Radio Mix of Un-Break My Heart and the Frankie Knuckles Radio Edit of I Don't Want To as bonus tracks, acknowledging the importance of her dance appeal. Toni embraced the feeling of being able to embrace her more sensuous side after all the years she spent as a preacher's daughter banned from wearing trousers, and Bille Woodruff, who directed all the videos for Secrets, encouraged her to be sexier. Toni had also recently had her breasts augmented, and the newfound confidence, combined with the success of You're Makin' Me High in 1996, enabled her to appear on the cover of Vibe in June 1997 in a photoshoot by Daniela Federici which made her look like she was practically nude (she was actually wearing panties but they were Photoshopped out). The issue was the biggest seller of Vibe's first five years (it had launched in 1993) and featured Toni swearing off further sex until marriage while also describing the art of seduction: Unfortunately, bad news arrived in relation to You're Makin' Me High after Toni's second bankruptcy was settled in July 2013: on a telephone interview with a newspaper reporter, Toni was asked: "I read that you lost the publishing rights to a lot of your songs. So what's next for Toni Braxton?" This was the first Toni had heard of it. A couple of minutes later, Toni's manager rang, letting her know that the publishing rights for 27 of her songs (including How Many Ways and You're Makin' Me High) had been auctioned off with an option for Toni to buy them back, but when Toni's attorneys' bid of $20,000 was doubled by a surprise bidder named Ross M. Klein, the attorneys backed off as they felt it wasn't worth it to outbid him. Toni's manager explained to Toni that the rights would eventually revert to her anyway. (Un-Break My Heart wasn't one of the 27 songs whose rights were auctioned - possibly because, having been written by Diane Warren with no writing credit for Toni, Toni never had any publishing rights in that song to begin with.) All the reports about this mention How Many Ways, You're Makin' Me High and - for some reason - More Than A Woman album track Always, but don't say what the remaining 24 songs are, and the legal documents I found online don't list them. @Butterfly (7.75) is here for this mix: "Adds a little bit of extra oomph that the original version lacks." @Holly Something (9) disagrees but hands out a higher score: "Not as good as the original." @Sprockrooster (4) is on the same page: "How they sucked the life out such a perfect track. I..." @Angeleyes (8) recommends a different mix instead: "You know I'm a sucker for '90s house mixes. But I think I prefer the Morales one." @WowWowWowWow (5) has a bone to pick: "Whose idea was this? They should be tried at the Hague. "Let's take a great song and strip all the good parts out of it oh and also totally change the tune" is not a recipe for success." (Well, you can blame Andrew Clough, Colin Thorpe and Tim Lennow for this one.) Finally, @pop3blow2 (8) makes a comparison to one of the queens of nineties remixes: "This is giving me Mariah remix or interlude vibes."
