Mariah Carey is SO much more than a Christmas artist. The listening trend is so sickening, she's such a phenomenal song writer, producer and singer. So many of her album cuts/ lesser known singles should be more well known than All I Want For Christmas is You.
She truly is a phenomenal artist but she is also the self-styled Queen of Christmas - I mean she even does Christmas tours, festive TV specials, etc lol. If AIWFCIY keeps Mariah in the public eye and helps her make regular albums for us fans then I can't be too mad about it. I think for a lot of the younger generations she is probably seen as a Christmas artist but for those of us who were around for her supremacy throughout the 90s, we know there's a lot more to her.
well the thing is christmas is a event that happens yearly, while seasonal her other songs can't compare to such a huge season. it's sad but at least she's capitalizing off of the season off a 1994 song of hers, and it's only getting bigger by the year. i just wish the same people who listen to AIWFCIY would check out her albums during the season and hear gems in her discography
Currently working my way through her albums. I've listened to Butterfly, and it was half decent. I am now listening to Music Box, which is impressing me so far.
App called Musicboard allows you to rate albums like a diary. Follow me @scottlbrowning on there.
