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.

Update 19/11/18: Mariah's original version I Still Believe is a cover of the single by Brenda K. Starr (Mariah was Brenda's back-up singer when she started out in music) and the remix is also influenced by Pure Imagination from the 1971 film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!

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.

Update 19/11/18: This is the original Make It  Last Forever by Keith Sweat which is sampled in Mariah's version:


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:

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. :)

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here:

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here;

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme:

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant UK

The Teen Mom universe keeps growing! This month sees the start of a brand new spin-off- a UK version of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. The original Teen Mom, now re-named Teen Mom OG (itself a spin-off on the American reality show 16 and Pregnant, which follow pregnant teenagers) started in 2009 and there have been several other shows since- Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom 3 (cancelled after one season), Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom: Young Moms Club (formerly Pretty Little Mamas). There have also been several international versions, including Teen Mom UK and Teen Mom Australia. Series 6 of TM: UK just finished and now the British version of Young and Pregnant is due to start next week.

TM: Young and Pregnant UK follows 4 new girls- Charlie, Alisha, Laura and Charlotte who are all expecting babies. When TM UK started only Mia Boardman was pregnant but this time all of the mums were pregnant during filming. (Which makes sense since this is "young and pregnant"! lol).



23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.

S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…
