  1. After the miserable (i.e. pathetic) first single "Obsessive" failed to generate much buzz, much less a top ten presence, her label delayed the release of her album and made her go back and record some new tunes. After whoring herself out, it looks like she's trying to get back into the Whitney fans good graces. However, this isn't the song to do it with. Wretched. At least they changed the album cover from the triple threat previously floating around the Internet where her implants are flying off in multiple directions.

  2. Wynonna did a big girl cover of this years ago, maybe a little overwrought, BUT I liked it better, I expect better from Mariah.

  6. Leela James did a cover of that song just this year... it was amazing. MC version - not so much.

  11. It's all about Tina Arena's version from her album "In Deep" from 1999 or 2000.

  12. Went to listen to the Leela James and Tina Arena's versions. Nice interpretations and have nothing negative to say about these talented ladies. BUT MARIAH RIPS THIS!!!!!!!!

  13. If Whitney is the reason Mariah went back into the studio to record this cover then thank you WHITNEY!!

  14. Sucks as much as she did on eminems dick. She should stop, really. Her last 2 albums were flops and now she is scraping the dirt trying to compete with what Whitney is throwing out there. Whitney- not good now, in compareson to "then" but Whit now is 10x better than Mariah now. Celine now is better than Whitney, and Mariah NOW put together.

    Let's see Mariah do that live, this year.

  21. I think the choice of this as a single is brilliant but her voice sounds so strained, it's painful. Clearly not on par with what she used to be capable of.
