Me. I am Vinny...The Shady Wordsmith

I made a Mariah/Janet playlist. I’ve grouped their songs together based on the songs’ lyrical theme and musical sound. It begins with socially and morally conscious tracks, followed by flirty, uptempo jams, sensual mid-tempo grooves, vulnerable slow jams, shady bops, uplifting and emotional anthems… ending with a few genre-less classics. Would appreciate your thoughts! Hopefully some of you check it out.

^Am I the only person who doesn't like that WBT/FLAB Grammy performance? Lipping and flailing around, unflattering extensions. The standing ovation that she deserved for her musical comeback that year was the best part.

Mariah has given tons of KILLER performances over the years, IMO that just isn't one of them.

Her WBT/FLB Grammy performance should have been on the list - that performance was everything on many levels.

It looks like they only went with 1 per show, though I'd choose "If It's Over" among her Grammys performances. He probably wanted to spread them across years, too.

Anyway, this could easily be in a new thread. It's not like the board has too many threads going right now.

I love that little guitar melody from 3:07-3:09 in IDWC.
I really love the additional guitar melodies that she uses in Vegas. They really add something.

I also love (even though it's a backing track) the way that she sings before the last chorus the "We can't go on make believing cos I don't..." then pauses "DOOOOOOOOON'T wanna cry" @ 1:50

that WBT/FLB Grammy is the best, I'm surprised they didn't mention it  here. She looked and sounded like an angel, 100 % live, perfect dress and make-up, gorgeous hair..

ISB remixes are all on Spotify now as part of the I Still Believe single: https://play.spotify.com/album/2Rmjd5rIL3SpcPhwSUcyla
Is this due to Sony promoting her older material now? If so, I love them even more lol

One friend of mine, who's a casual fan, thinks that IWTKWLI is her best song ever.

That's sorta crazy, but I do like her version. It should never have been a single except maybe at AC, but it isn't bad. I wish she had sung more of the song, though.

All the promo so far has been on ABC. Did Mariah really break with NBC after the Rockefeller mess?
Well, she's always gone back and forth between the two networks, though Nick being with NBC probably helped during the marriage. But yeah, I am sure the mess with the Rockefeller taping didn't help, especially following Mariah's mess during the taping for the NBC special during the MIAM promo.

It's so random that Usher only has 1 solo line on "How Much"
