Well, I Guess I'm Trying To Be Nonchalant About It...

Cabaret homages! Feathers! Magic acts! A cowboy hat! You'll see all this and more as we rewind the clock back to 1997 Mariah Carey Land. It's hard to believe that this video came out some ten years ago, and it's really mind blowing that Mariah went from this to mediocre crap-ola like "Touch My Body". This is sexy, without being overtly obvious and trite. And to think that the song isn't even about seduction, it's about the aftermath of a love gone astray. "Breakdown" is possibly one of Mariah's finest recordings, and one of the best tracks off the the new classic album, 1997's Butterfly. Call me bias, but if this is essential Mariah, even though it wasn't the chart climber. Though it should've been. The video is not to shabby either, as it features Mariah showgirling it up with guest stars, Bone Thugs N' Harmony in a Vegas styled setting. Ah...those were the days...

  1. This has to be my all time favorite Mariah Carey song. Sure she has had some mis happens and so forth for the last couple of years but reagardless. As soon as I see this video or hear this song. It takes me back to the legit Mariah. The one from the 90s. I love it.
