Mariah week might work in the states, but here? A wholeevening of her songs on British telly? No.
It was when we were half way through, and one of the people I was watching with (my age, 22, and yes into all kinds of music) turned to me and said 'I haven't recognised one song yet'.
I'm certainly no Mariah loon, but if your friend didn't know 'Endless Love', 'Against All Odds', 'Without You' or 'One Sweet Day' then I think that says more about them than Mariah's catalogue. I watched with some people who hate Mariah - no one knew 'Open Arms' or 'My All' but everyone knew every other song. 23 top ten hits is not to be sniffed at, as Cheryl Cole would no doubt say.
