Mariah Carey - General Discussion

  1. Do you know if the original version of Loverboy is a completely different vocal take, too?
     
  2. Completely different. The melody is the same, but her vocals aren’t nasal, and she sings the chorus like she does in “I’ll Be Loving U Long Time.”

  3. Hearing the original Loverboy as it was intended, really will be such a moment.

  4. And seeing it at #1 on iTunes would be THE moment. Really hope the US lambs manage to pull that off.

  6. She had the UK #1 last Christmas but fucking Amazon and bloody Goulding ruined everything.
     
  7. I swear this song is forever doomed to be stuck at #2 for all eternity.

  8. She would have had it in 2019 too if it weren't for ACR coming in that year. OCC hate Mariah.
     
  9. I’ve heard Amazon are all set to pull the same tricks with their Alexa playlists this year too. Apparently they have several songs lined up.

    Mariah should’ve been #1 the last two years at least. Frustrating.

  10. She might not have the #1, but who has the classic song status and yearly streams dahhhling?
     
  11. I mean it when i say Mariah Carey just may be the most underrated American songwriter. I don't know the exact number, but she's written, like 18 or her 21 #1 hits, right? Including AIWFCIY

    When i tell casual music fans this they lose their minds. It's like nobody knew Mariah was super talented on top of just her vocals

  12. Ive been wanting to hear this for years! Finally. I enjoyed Loverboy but didnt like the vocal take she chose.

  13. True, which is the main thing at the end of the day.

  14. HMV now have the bulk of her vinyl to be pre ordered, but not as cheap as Amazon-£35 they want for Rainbow for instance!

  15. One of the best albums to ever exist to be honest.
     
  16. A truly timeless album.

  17. It's not my favourite, but it's so bloody brilliant.
     
  18. Same for FNAC, and that’s odd considering the first two albums are listed at 17 euros.
     
  19. The whole ‘Rarities’ project is so fucking exciting but I must admit I’d take ‘Thank God I Found You’ demo x12 if it meant we’d still get the original ‘Loverboy’ track. Thaťs the one I’m looking forward the most. I love the released version so much but I’ve been obviously curious and dying to hear it with the YMO sample, actually often imagining it when listening to the song. I’d expect it to leak it via some shady zippyshare link on Twitter and not it being on the official compilation (and being pressed on vinyl too!). It’s so close!
