Audio Vision: In A 1990 Mariah Mood

Monday, September 21, 2009

Did you see Mariah Carey on Oprah last Friday? She sung that Foreigner cover, talked about her new movie, Precious, and snogged that boy she's married to...yeah, yeah,...whatever so boring. The main thing that dazzled me more so was of how Miss Carey looked. The curly brown hair, her wearing that black off the shoulder shirt...all the woman needed was some jeans and some little school children in backwards baseball caps around her and she would've stepped fresh off the set of the "Someday" video. The woman was giving off 1990 vibes so hard that it made me want to scope out some ancient Mariah videos...I'm talking about when back-up singer, Trey Lorenz had a fade and Mariah was rocking acid wash jeans as she gets giddy over performing at the Apollo Theater. Sadly, I don't own my VCR anymore (does anyone still use a VCR aside from my parents?) so I couldn't pop in my banged up First Vision tape from 1991 to get that old time feeling back...luckily, the Internets never fail as you can see before you the first interview segment from the now hard-to-find video compilation which featured Mariah casually sitting and discussing the start of her career, her musical influences and how her debut album came to be. As an added bonus, the second video is a compilation of early promos and snippets of Mariah performing and rehearsing songs such as "Vanishing" and "All In Your Mind" from when she just a star on the rise. Interesting nostalgia right here. My how time just flies...
