Mariah Carey: The Remixes Rate

138 posts in this topic

Welcome to the first official Mariah rate on the new ATRL.

 

Ace Reject said I could open this on the weekend and it's officially the weekend in the Christmas Islands (Kiritimati to be exact).

 

On Dec 18, 1995, Mariah Angela Nuñez Carey revolutionised the pop game when she released the historically iconic Fantasy remix with the late and great hip-hop pioneer ODB. Before Mariah Carey, no one was really attempting to take their hit songs and completely transform it for the clubs/radio/different demographics the way that Mariah did with Fantasy and that is why she is indubitably the Queen of the Remix.

 

As Mariah prepares to…well we don’t know what she’s doing but as Mariah is living her life, ATRLers are cordially invited to relive, for the nostalgia, the grandeur of MC's 27-year career with this Remixes Rate, brought to you by this year’s Lambily Awards “Make It Look Good” award recipient, Buyonce1814, aka me, and the “Anytime You Need a Friend” award recipient, Ventitonic. 

 

After a lot of deliberating and back and forth, we have made a final list. There was one rule that we set ourselves; remixes that sound too much like the album version were to not be included. However, for the rate to be approved, Ace Reject insisted we include the Mobb Deep remix of The Roof. 

 

We believe we selected the best remixes and we have tried to account for everyone’s tastes and likes. Please join us as we celebrate Mariah Carey’s career and the main pop girl that influenced and changed the remix game.

•    All songs must be scored between 0-10

 

•    …however, you can score ONE song with an 11, 10.75, 10.5 and 10.25


•    You can score songs using TWO decimal points: 5.61, 3.25, 9.97, etc. In fact, this would be preferred in order to avoid ties.


•    For your ballot to count, you must rate every song


•    Being an Allison aka a troll will not be tolerated; so, if you give Charmy remixes all 0’s, then ByeBye.mp3


•    Please remember to vote Ventitonic for the Meteorite award at next year’s Lambily awards for such dazzlingly astounding graphics


•    Please remember to vote this thread as best thread at next year’s Lambily awards

We appreciate that some of these remixes are long as **** and therefore you’d need time to listen and appreciate them in all their glory. Therefore, you have a month from now to submit your ballots. All songs must be PM’d to me (Buyonce1814) by 22nd May. You may tune in from the 23rd May to see where your fave remixes end up.

Doing this! :duca: So many to get through, though. But the Music Box era remixes bop, makes those songs so much better.

The Through The Rain Kelly Price and Joe remix needs to do well, possibly an 11 contender from what I've listened to so far. A sub-par lead single turned into an amazing bop.

@jdmc218 The Anytime You Need a Friend C&C Radio Mix is the exact same as the classic mix just edited for the radio version. We mostly used radio mixes because otherwise the entire song list would be like 30 hrs long. You're more than welcome to use the full versions from your own collection to rate accordingly.
