Time to celebrate – we’re halfway through the week again. Yes, we’ve made it!
AND an even greater cause for celebration – tonight marks the beginning of the first Las Vegas residency of one of pop music’s most enduring, incomparable legends and a fave of mine since the old days (as those of you who read Fairytale WILL remember)…. MARIAH CAREY!!!!!!!!!
While her Vegas set and upcoming compilation #1 to Infinity will be bringing us the 18 US #1 hit singles she has earned over a twenty-five year career, on today’s Wishin’ Back Wednesday’ playlist we’re going to revel in nine of the many wonderful songs she’s written that didn’t reach the top spot, plus her new single ‘Infinity‘, PLUS a hilarious piss-take of La Mariah by Chelsea Handler (just in case you thought I was one of those crazy fans that didn’t realise how ridiculous this guilty pleasure makes me!)
ENJOY, BITCHES! And good luck in Vegas, Mariah!
