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. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

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…
