With so many to shake and cry over, I feel we need a thread "Dedicated" to the album tracks, B-sides and rarities that really make up the best work in Mariah's back catalogue.

I'll start with my latest obsession. I slept on this for years, but since #justiceforSlippingAway, I rediscovered this gem, which is somewhat of a sonic sibling. I would love to hear a version with an extended outro where the "you and me got a typical thing" gets layered with ad-libs for a minute or so.


I hope Mariah works with Babyface again on her next album.

Is this a good time to remind everyone that “Close My Eyes” from Butterfly is one of the best things she’s ever done?

Melt Away and Petals are FINE choices.

I have always loved the title track from Music Box. I don't think I've seen many other lambs claim it as a favourite though.

Flop thread
I mean, what can I say when the two first choices were... not so deep.

That being said, Ms Logic? definitely has a point about Music Box, which is just lovely, but rather forgotten in the midst of Anytime You Need a Friend, Hero and Without You.

I mean, she is in the sense that only semi-lambs and full lambs know her.

For the girls who like it real deep, I am obsessed with the Drifting Mix of Underneath the Stars, the Xscape mix of Always Be My Baby and the Smooth / No Rap Version of Honey.

as far as deep (remix) cuts, I've always been fond of this. sometimes I forget an album version exists!
