Top 10 Mariah Carey Songs

I thought I'd do another Top 10, this time of songs by my favourite singer Mariah Carey!



1. Honey

This is my favourite Mariah song of all. It was on Butterfly, the first album I bought in 1997. On Butterfly her music was a bit more R'n'B and hip hop than older albums, or rather a carry on to Daydream which had more of an R'n'B style than previous releases. Butterfly basically expanded on that and it was during the making of this album that Mariah separated from her first husband Tommy Mottola, which allowed her more freedom with her music and generally.








2. Heartbreaker (Remix) feat. Da Brat and Missy Elliot

This is the remix to Heartbreaker, which came out in 1999. I like the original too but prefer the remix. The video also features Snoop Dogg. This version is on both Rainbow (1999) and The Remixes (2003).





3. Fantasy

Old style Mariah. One of the songs that I used to like when I was younger. Fantasy is from  Mariah's album Daydream (1995). There's also a remix featuring rapper ODB.







4. I Still Believe Pure Imagination Remix feat. Krayzie Bone and Da Brat

Another remix! The original I Still Believe is good too but I like this one better.






5. Thank God I Found You (Make It Last Remix) feat. Joe and Nas

I don't like Thank You God I Found You with boyband 98 Degrees much, I prefer this version. It appears on The Remixes (2003). It sampled a song from the 80s, Make It Last Forever by Keith Sweat.



                               



6. So Lonely (One and Only Part II) with Twista

So Lonely is a follow on from One and Only. I like One and Only too but So Lonely is my favourite out of them. Both songs appeared on the re-released Platinum edition of The Emancipation of Mimi (2005). It never came out as a single, so there's no video.



                                   





Update 2/1/14- I posted the wrong video before (just realised now! lol), I posted Twista's version- So Lonely (One and Only Part 3)- which Mariah didn't sing as much on! So this is the right one and you can also listen to Twista's version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Wl6n_QXG6s



7. Can't Let Go

Can't Let Go was on Mariah's second album Emotions (1991). I don't actually have this album, so I don't know all the songs on it but I like this one.






8. If We feat. Nate Dogg and Ja Rule

If We is from Glitter (2001), the album that accompanied the film of the same name. Many people didn't like this album but I liked it better the more I listened to it. As for the film, I didn't think it was great but it wasn't that bad! lol. This wasn't a single either.






9. I Know What You Want (with Busta Rhymes and Flipmode Squad)

Mariah featured on  this song for Busta Rhymes, which was on his album It Ain't Safe No More (2002). It also appeared on Mariah's album The Remixes.



                                 
                              

10. Dream Lover

Dream Lover is from Mariah's album Music Box (1993) and is a poppier style than the others on this list.







Hope you like the list! I'll do a follow up with more Mariah songs in the future. :)

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)


The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)


First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.



So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
