The Top Ten

1 All I Want For Christmas Is You

Of course this is #1! It's one of the most well known songs of all time and rightfully so! Who can't get behind a classic Christmas song like this? - theOpinionatedOne

2 We Belong Together

You could not escape this song in the 2005 and the ensuing years and why would you want to? It's truly an amazing song. - theOpinionatedOne

3 Hero

One of her most loved songs. Frequently cited as a fan favorite for it's message. - theOpinionatedOne

4 One Sweet Day

And this song you could not escape in the latter half of the 90s! - theOpinionatedOne

5 Vision of Love

Arguably her signature tune apart from All I Want for Christmas Is You. The introduction of melismatic singing in popular music. - theOpinionatedOne

6 Fantasy

The song that started the "featured rapper" craze. I prefer the solo version but still an urban radio staple even in 2017! - theOpinionatedOne

7 Emotions

Whistles here, there and everywhere! This is probably what you point someone to if you want to demonstrate Mariah at her best vocally. - theOpinionatedOne

8 Dreamlover

My personal favorite. She has,such a wonderfully true singing voice. All the haters miss out on the beauty of it. I could care less about her personal life, when she steps up to a mic, I just get swept away. - Ned964

One of her most memorable early singles with its laidback melody and delivery being a cozy drop of sunshine in the rough early 90s music scene. - theOpinionatedOne

9 Always Be My Baby

This one remains a pop radio staple two decades after initial release and with that infectious chorus, it's easy to understand why. - theOpinionatedOne

10 Honey

This song is memorable for cementing Mimi's transition to R&B in contrast to her previous albums. - theOpinionatedOne
