Well if EVERYTHING ELSE gets its own thread, WHY NOT THIS?

to me this is more exciting than the Rarities.

I seriously cannot fathom that the vocals are live on One Sweet Day. INSANE

Just Be Good To Me is the true gift from this live set though :disco:

Not feeling the love for Hero on this. It sounds rather laboured and she’s even off key at a couple of moments. Yeah the belts sound good, but on the whole I’m not super impressed. The studio version sounds so effortless, but I’ve yet to hear a live version that lives up to it.

I have overused all my superlatives in the last six months, so how to describe what happens to me during THAT Hero middle-eight. The vocals. The power. The control. The resonance.

TAKE. MY. WIG.

The way her vocals snake around the melody in Without You. Your. Fave. Could. Never.

Unless your fave is Imperialeriah :disco:

I don't know why and I know it's WRONG but I'm not bothered about live performances of her really well-known material

You And I, If Only You Knew/Over The Rainbow, With You I'm Born Again of course, but another version of Hero, ABMB, Dreamlover... it doesn't really get me going

I wonder if this is what CHRISTMAS IN JAPAN feels like :o

PROBABLY NOT! (@Diddy to confirm pls)

I was listening to Vision of Love on my headphones and it's the closest thing to the Holy Spirit there is.

I'm really enjoying some of the NONPLUSSED faces in the audience shots

The hair and outfits were choices

The backing singers are FAB

She has rhythm! I see you stepping from side to side on the beat MC

It's so weird to watch her not duck the high notes (mostly)

I'm so used to the 'if it sounds great it's not live' latter day Mariah perf rule of thumb that I can't watch this fairly :D

I’m used to Japanese people losing their total shit in concerts too! It’s not like Sweden :D

I guess it was a different time
They still try to make those pubey beards happen now though

Sorry still talking about Hero because I just put it back on but I think this version is now the definitive version for me

Some of the notes she hits are just exceptional. And totally floored me

Yes! And even though she absolutely goes to town, she really is in such command throughout, there’s not a minute where I thinks she overreaches or over eggs it. It’s literally perfect.
