The Mariah Carey Newsgroup Frequently Asked Questions
(for rec.music.artists.mariah-carey)
Issue #039 (9th April 2001)- The Welcome To Virgin Edition


The maintenance of this FAQ is a non-profit project of Kasoft Typesetting, a
division of Kasoft Software, Australia. The editor and author, Kade "Archer"
Hansson, can be reached by e-mail at kad...@postoffice.utas.edu.au.
Corrections, additions and all forms of feedback are encouraged.

An extensive hypertext version of this document (XHTML, suitable for most
contemporary browsers) is available on the web at:

http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/6413/MCFAQ-index.html

Note that if you are reading this text on a newsgroup or an FAQ archive,
there may be a significant lag time before the hypertext version is updated
to reflect the changes in the document you are now reading. That is, you
could be seeing the previous month's version if you follow this link. All
previous mirrors of the hypertext version are outdated, so this address is to
be preferred over any others you may have.

For those who prefer plain text, or the protocol FTP, the MIT archive has up-
to-data copies of all FAQs in textual form on their FTP service. This FAQ is
in five parts that can be downloaded from the directory:

ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/news.answers/music/mariah-carey-faq/

For faster access, and to reduce the burden on the main service, I would
recommend that you seek out mirrors of the MIT site, which can be readily
found all over the world.

The hypertext version of this FAQ includes local links to full lyrics and
cover thumbnails, as well as selected articles and photographs.

New readers should read the general section first, and then to browse through
the music, movie, personal information and miscellaneous sections. People
with a strong interest in Mariah Carey may like to browse the fan section, to
find out about fan clubs and collectables. Regular computer users may also be
interested in the technical section.

At the end of the FAQ I give a selected bibliography. I also list some
articles about Mariah and interviews she has done.

See question G3 for recent developments, including updates on Mariah's move
from Columbia to Virgin and the upcoming movie and soundtrack All That
Glitters.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

G1. Who is Mariah Carey?

Mariah Carey is the biggest selling recording artist of the 1990s and the
biggest selling female artist of all time (despite what you may have heard).
Mariah Carey is unique in having both a breath-taking multi-octave vocal
range as well as an amazing talent for writing and producing highly popular
songs. Since her self-titled debut album was released in 1990, she has sold
over 120 million albums and 20 million singles.

Mariah Carey is often referred to as simply "Mariah", though some may prefer
Ms Carey over such blatant familarity. Also, fans usually capitalize the
personal pronoun "her" when discussing Mariah, viz "Her". MC is also a common
abbreviation. Mariah has no middle name, and her first name is supposedly
derived from the song They Call The Wind Mariah from the movie Paint Your
Wagon (see S1).

Mariah Carey has been married once, to Sony Music Entertainment President,
Tommy Mottola, but that relationship ended in divorce in March 1998 after
four years of marriage and nine months of separation. Her present marital
status is single, but she is romatically linked to Luis Miguel, a latin
singer.

Mariah was originally signed to the Columbia music label, now a division of
Sony Music Entertainment, by Tommy back in 1989 (see M1). Under Columbia she
released nine albums (see M2), including one compilation and one EP. Since
last month she is now signed to the Virgin label, a division of EMI Music
Publishing. Her first album with Virgin will be the soundtrack to the
upcoming movie All That Glitters (see S2), allowed under a special
arrangement with Columbia (whose parent co-owns the rights to the movie).

G2. What kind of articles are posted on the newsgroup?

The newsgroup rec.music.artists.mariah-carey is about Mariah Carey, and that
includes articles about, or at least closely related to, her life and her
music. News bulletins, announcements, questions, opinions, reviews and
discussions all have a place on the group. It is not dedicated to fans alone,
and anyone who is interested in the discussions taking place is encouraged to
participate.

As a general rule, articles should not be crossposted to or from other music
groups. The point of having the rec.music.* hierachy divided into separate
sections is to allow discussions specific topics to take place without
disturbing those who do not have an interest in them. Music is a very broad
topic, and also one where opinions vary greatly and emotions can run high.
Learn to respect others' opinions, and do not force your opinion on others.

People who post deliberately provoking and generally thoughtless articles
should be ignored. If you do feel a reply is necessary, use e-mail in the
first instance. Public follow-ups to such articles should be avoided. In any
instance, do not crosspost replies to any groups other than those to which
the article is directly and indisputably relevant.

G3. What is Mariah's most recent work?

The most recent developments for Mariah have occurred on two fronts:

1. Details about the release of the upcoming movie All That Glitters (read
on) have become public- Mariah has coproduced the soundtrack and stars in the
film.

2. Mariah has left Sony for EMI, and has a $US20 million per album deal with
the Virgin label. This has been rumoured ever since Mariah split with Sony
CEO Tommy Mottola. Various sources cite Mariah being unhappy with promotion
(or lack thereof) at Sony, but the truth is certainly more complicated.

Mariah's most recent studio album is entitled Rainbow. This album is packed
with collaborations with urban and R&B artists, but has a few ballads to
pacify older fans. The work is testimony to Mariah's astounding ability to
adjust herself to the popular styles of the day.

The singles released from the Rainbow album appear to be different in each
part of the world. Heartbreaker, the one which has a worldwide release, had a
record debut week, with sales tying a Beatles record of 271 000 copies sold
in the US. Thank God I Found You was then released to some markets (including
the US), followed by Against All Odds and Can't Take That Away (Mariah's
Theme) (paired with Crybaby in the US), though the order of release depends
on the market.

Mariah appeared in the movie The Bachelor, a film starring Chris O'Donnell
which had wordlwide release around the beginning of 2000. Mariah's next movie
role will be much bigger, as she will appear in the star vehicle All That
Glitters, believed to be ready for an Autumn 2001 release. See question S2.

Mariah's most recent worldwide video album (available on VHS and DVD
worldwide) is Number Ones, containing video clips featuring Mariah's number
one singles.

G4. Where can I find lyrics?

Not on the newsgroup- check the FAQ website (address given below), amongst
others. As the FAQ maintainer, I used to post new and updated lyrics to the
newsgroup as they became available. This was to prevent the newsgroup being
flooded with multiple conflicitng copies of Mariah's lyrics. The lyrics were
cited with a revision number and date, and I encouraged readers to bring
disagreements to my attention.

The result of my efforts are the Mariah Carey lyric archives. The lyric
archives are available as links from this page:

http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/6413/MCFAQ-general.html#g4

I still encourage people to correct the archives, because lyrics are very
rarely 100% correct. Please note that not all archives are complete, and some
are not yet publically available (those marked at revision 0). This is
because they are very incomplete or I am otherwise unhappy with them.

If a song you want isn't available here (and remember that album archives
contain the full lyrics for all songs on international releases of that
album), may I suggest you visit Mihau's Mariah Carey Lyrics Archive at:

http://mariahlyrics.com/

G5. Are there instrumental or karaoke versions of Mariah's songs?

There is are a few instrumental or karaoke albums available, but they are not
officially endorsed. See question F4. Additionally, MIDI music files are
readily available on the net (see G8). For the musically inclined, sheet
music is available. Question M2h has a list of songbooks.

Rachid Guernane has indicated that the avid Mariah fan can track down true
instrumental versions (that is the exact same backing tracks Mariah sings to)
of some songs. The instrumental tracks he has been able to find:

Against All Odds
[from the Japanese 5" CD single.]

All I Want For Christmas Is You
[from the Merry Christmas CD Plus, used in the introduction
to the interactive session.]

Endless Love
[from the US/European/Australian 5" CD single & the Japanese
3" CD single.]

My All
[from a rare French compilation.]

Sweetheart/ The Story Instrumental
[from the US promo CD single & the Japanese 5" CD single.]

When You Believe
[from the US CD single.]

DVD (see question T3) would provide the ideal format for delivering such
material. However, to my knowledge, there is no DVD containing karaoke
versions of Mariah's songs. However, Mariah's music DVDs (see question M2f)
do include synchronised lyrics, and many audio receivers allow vocals to be
suppressed. There may also be laserdiscs available with Mariah Carey songs on
them, so check in a laserdisc catalogue.

I myself have a long-standing project to create a karaoke machine based on a
computer and a CD player, but I wouldn't wait for that. If you are
interested, e-mail me and I'll tell you how it's coming along.

G6. Should I post pictures, songs or sound clips on the newsgroup?

This is not a newsgroup designed for binary traffic (such as music, sounds
and images), so you should never post this material. The correct protocol is
to post the binary file to the alt.binaries.* hierachy and then post a
message here notifying the group of its whereabouts.

G7. Where else on the Internet, besides the newsgroup, can I discuss Mariah?

There is an established live chat channel called #Mariah_Carey (also try
#Mariah) on Undernet IRC which is dedicated to the discussion of Mariah and
her music. Look at the IRC newsgroups (such as alt.irc.undernet) to find out
more about Undernet and IRC, and how you can connect. Some further
information is given in question T2.

Also, there are three mailing lists you can subscribe to:

Description Name of list Posting address
Mariah Carey's fan list Vision vis...@pdafrance.com
Mariah Carey news list Vision News visio...@pdafrance.com
Mariah Carey marketplace list Goddess-Mariah -

(The Vision list is a superset of Vision News, in the sense that articles
sent to Vision News appear on Vision, but articles sent to vision do not
appear on Vision News.)

You can subscribe to either of the Vision groups by sending a message to
majo...@pdafrance.com with a body containing the line:

subscribe <name-of-list>

To unsubscribe from a Vision group send a message to majo...@pdafrance.com
with a body containing the line:

unsubscribe <name-of-list>

(Replace <name-of-list> with one of the mailing list names given above.)

To join the marketplace mailing list, send a message to
majo...@lists.io.com with a body containing the line:

subscribe goddess-mariah

Whenever you send to an automated "majordomo" account, you can leave the
subject line blank. Messages posted to the mailing list you subscribe to will
be sent to your e-mailbox.

G8. Where can I find some other Mariah-focused Internet resources?

There are a great many worldwide web pages dedicated to Mariah Carey, and the
table below gives but a small sampling of these. Of foremost interest is the
Official Sony Mariah Carey page at:

http://www.mcarey.com/

There are many Mariah Carey chat channels. The one which is arguably the most
popular is #Mariah_Carey on undernet. See question T2. Many web pages also
include live chat facilities and message boards.


[Other Worldwide Web pages]

These pages are selected by the FAQ maintainer because they are reasonably
contemporaneous and represent a reasonable cross-section of what is
available. E-mail me if you would like me to review your page for inclusion.
I have had to remove a lot of pages because they are no longer actively
maintained- I would ask that you notify me should that happen to pages listed
here, particularly if you are the maintainer.

G9. What if my question isn't answered here?

If your question has not been answered by this newsgroup FAQ, please feel
free to ask on the newsgroup. If this fails, feel free to ask me at
kad...@postoffice.utas.edu.au, and I will endeavour to learn the answer for
you.

If you feel any commonly asked question deserves to be listed in this FAQ,
please contact me. It would be nice if you have an answer too, but not
essential.

The Mariah Carey Newsgroup Frequently Asked Questions
(for rec.music.artists.mariah-carey)

Issue #039, 9th April 2001

MOVIE QUESTIONS

S1. What can you tell me about Paint Your Wagon?

This is a musical motion picture released in 1969, first released on video in
1983 by CIC/Arena. It featured the song that Mariah is supposedly named
after, They Call The Wind Mariah. This was perhaps the most popular song from
the movie, bar Wand'rin Star which was sung by Lee Marvin.

The film was directed by Joshua Logan and starred Lee Marvin, Clint Eastwood,
Jean Seberg, Harve Presnell and Ray Walston. It runs for 164 minutes, and is
the "wild west" story of a couple of prospectors who make their way to No
Name City. Rumson (Marvin) meets a travelling Mormon, and buys his wife
(Seberg) at auction for $800. Rumson falls in love with her, but she falls in
love with Pardner (Eastwood).

S2. Which movies has Mariah appeared in?

She had a bit part as an opera singer in The Bachelor, which stars Chris
O'Donnell and screened worldwide. For details, The Bachelor website at http:/
/www.bachelormovie.com/ should be your first point of call.

For some time now Mariah has also been involved in a project with the title
All That Glitters, supposedly based on a concept developed by Mariah. Mariah
will star and sing in the movie, which has now been filmed. The story is not
meant to be autobiographical, although it may borrow from some aspects of
Mariah's life and rise to fame.

All That Glitters has finished post-production and is expected to be released
shortly. The Internet Movie Database has additional information on this
production at:

http://www.imdb.com/Title?0118589

Some details have now emerged about the film. Initial reports (now several
years old) on the director and production arrangements were based on old
information. Originally Buena Vista, the distribution arm of the Disney
studio, was associated with the production, which was also linked to German
backers. Promotion of the film indicates that Twentieth Century Fox and
Columbia TriStar (Sony Entertainment) now own the rights and will distribute
the film.

Mariah plays Billie, an up and coming singing sensation, who rises from the
ashes, facing adversity and striving against the odds to make a place for
herself in the cutthroat entertainment business. Sound familiar? Directed by
Vondie Curtis-Hall (writer/director Gridlock'd) and written by Kate Lanier
(writer What's Love Got To Do With It, Set It Off and The Mod Squad), the
production showcases new talent itself in its actors, and also includes
rapper Da Brat in the supporting cast.

Mariah was also cast as the step-daughter of the arch-villan in "Double-0-
Soul". The movie was supposed to be an action comedy starring Chris Tucker.
In the movie, Tucker's character is a bungling secret-agent, suddenly saddled
with the age old task of saving the world after all the top agents are taken
out. An acceptable script for the film failed to surface, so the movie is now
dead in the water.

S3. What's the story with the Honey video clip?

Speculation on a movie role for Mariah began when many fans observed that the
video for Honey is like a mini-movie, and does place Mariah in an acting role
of sorts. This is much apart from her other videos, just as her intention to
move into making movies is unexpected. As recently as two years ago she
laughed in disbelief at the very idea.

Interestingly, the Honey video has more in common with a James Bond story
than simply the broad brush strokes of plot and subtle nuances of extravagant
costumes and tongue-in-cheek acting. The bikini costume which Mariah wears is
almost identical to that worn by Ursula Andress' character, Honey Ryder, in
the first ever James Bond film, Dr No (1962).

PERSONAL QUESTIONS

P1. What is Mariah's family like?

Mariah was born of a multicultural parentage, with a European descended
mother (Patricia) and a father (Alfred Roy) of mixed South American and
African-American parentage. Alison and Morgan are Mariah's only siblings, and
are significantly older- by ten years.

Alison is the most outspoken of the two, frequently speaking negatively about
Mariah to the gossip press, and perpetually threatening to write a "tell-all"
biography. Alison turned to drug use and prostitution in her teenage years.
Mariah dedicated her debut album to her, but these days the two are bitter
enemies, largely due to a custody battle over Alison's offspring where Mariah
took her mother's side.

Morgan suffered from serious symptoms of cerebral palsy and epilepsy in his
youth, but is now part of the recording industry, CEO of Big Kid Records
(http://bigkidrecords.com). Morgan is currently single, and has no children.
He was briefly married to actress Jeannie Millar in August 1996, but the rest
of the family never met her.

P2. When and where was Mariah born?

Mariah was the third and final child born to Patricia, an Irish-American
mezzo soprano opera singer, and Alfred Roy Carey, an aeronautical engineer of
mixed Venezuelan and African-American descent. She was born on Friday March
27th 1970 in New York. She was raised on Long Island, New York.

P3. How would I pick Mariah in a crowd?

Mariah used to be most commonly recognisable for her shoulder to elbow length
slightly reddish brown curly hair. But given the number of changes in the
last few years, the trademark look is now a thing of the past.

Mariah's hair was darker and straighter than her natural red/brown during
part of 1994 (see the Fantasy and Daydream covers), and in interviews and
video clips after the release of Daydream, her hair appeared much lighter,
although was once again curly.

Often Mariah appears to be almost completely blonde, and her hair is now most
often straight. But this changes, so don't take it as gospel. In summary, I
certainly wouldn't envy anyone who tried to pick out Mariah in a crowd based
on her hairstyle. Better to look for her now well-established trademark- dark
sunglasses.

Mariah has brown eyes, stands 175 cm tall (5'9") and weighs approximately 55
kg (120 lbs). She is tall and lean, and has tanned skin, partially natural
due to her parentage. Her dress size was once reported by Cosmopolitan
magazine in the US as European 10 (US 6).

P4. What are Mariah's favourite things?

Mariah's favourite colour is pink, though she likes to wear black. Mariah
enjoys having fun outside, especially at the beach or at an amusment park-
but anywhere really. She also likes swimming, water-skiing and horseriding,
but appears to exclude competitive sports from her recreational activities.
For thrills she likes to try rollercoasters.

Mariah likes pets, has always liked pets, and will probably continue liking
pets for the foreseeable future. Her oldest animals, mentioned in many early
interviews, were Princess and Duke, a pair of dobermans, Ginger, a Yorkshire
terrier, and Ninja and Tompkins, a pair of cats. Mariah no longer has these
pets- Ninja and Tompkins have passed away. Jack, a Jack Russell terrier which
appears in many videos (Honey for one), is still with Mariah. Jack travels
with her where possible, and often has to be rescued from hotel pools by
Mariah's bodyguards.

Over the years, Mariah has had other pets as well, including two other cats,
Clarence & Puffy, and another dog Tommy gave her as a gift a number of years
ago. In Japan last year she added two further small dogs, Bing and Bong. She
picks up pets almost everywhere she goes, and it is very hard to keep track
of all of them. Her pets live with her in her Manhattan apartment, though
some, such as Bing and Bong, have been entrusted to the care of friends.

Mariah likes listening to rap and other contemporary music styles. Covers of
Without You, Open Arms and the reworking of Genius Of Love into Fantasy
demonstrate Mariah's strong sentimental attachment to songs of the late '70s
and early to mid '80s. (This period formed the musical backdrop to her
teenage years.)

Mariah was inspired to her original style of singing by listening to Alison's
collection of soul, jazz and gospel. But lately she has been showing a
leaning towards a more urban sound.

When curling up to watch a movie, Mariah prefers comedy and horror. However,
her choice of favourite actors- Marilyn Monroe and James Dean- might also
indicate a soft spot for movies made during Hollywood's golden years. For a
TV dinner, Mariah is likely to choose pasta, or perhaps salad. She used to be
a vegetarian, but lapsed when she married Tommy.

P5. What was Mariah's first wedding like?

Her first wedding, to Tommy Mottola (see P7), was a bit like a Royal wedding,
as Mariah modelled it on the wedding of their Royal Highnesses Prince Charles
and Princess Diana. Her excuse for using this wedding as a basis for her own
was that she never really had much interest in weddings as a girl, and she
wanted to know what such a gala affair should be like. Even the tiara she
wore, a family heirloom, was redesigned to look like the Princess's. Her
wedding dress was an ivory-silk duchess satin gown designed by Vera Wang,
with a 8.25 m (27') train and matching satin pumps. The whole affair cost
almost $US0.5M, not including the 1893 sixpence Mariah put in one of her
shoes for luck.

There has not yet been a second wedding, but Mariah is romantically linked
with latin singer Luis Miguel.

P6. Does Mariah smoke?

Most people assume not, and that assumption is true. However, a more
pertinent question is "Has she ever smoked?" This is a question that appears
only have ever been asked of Mariah by the public, and the answer is yes.

Mariah smoked during her teenage years, until the age of 18 when she gave up
in one day. Legend has it (and it is probably as good as any other
explanation) that just before she quit, Mariah lost her voice and promised
God she wouldn't smoke if she got it back. She did, so she doesn't.

P7. Who was Mariah's first husband?

Thomas D Mottola Jr was married to Mariah in June 1993. Tommy, as he is
known, has risen from being a so-so talent manager to CEO of one of the
biggest and most dominant entertainment corporations in the world, Sony
Entertainment. Born into a warm Italian family, Tommy carries the stigma
attached to his father's alleged connection with the mob. A hazard of sharing
his name, though marrying the daughter of an alleged mobster in 1971
certainly didn't help.

Along his rise to the top, Tommy has been a guitarist in a rock band, drag
raced, acted in four films under the stage name Tommy Valentine and even
tried his hand as a solo vocalist. Jack of all trades, master at none, Tommy
admits he was never a showman. But when he signed up Hall and Oates to Epic
records in the early 70s, his ascent to prominence was assured, perhaps more
through slick contracts than actual foresight.

Tommy even has had songs written about him. One is called Cherchez La Femme,
originally recorded by Dr Buzzard's Original Savannah Band. It was rerecorded
in 1994 by Epic Records' Gloria Estefan on her covers album Hold Me, Thrill
Me, Kiss Me. About singing of her boss, Gloria says in the credits, "I got a
real kick out of singing this one... I loved singing [Tommy's] name [on the
song]... Thankyou [Tommy]... My love to Mariah!" Tommy was also recently the
subject of a Vanity Fair article called "Tommy Boy" [Vanity Fair 97].

The divorce of Mariah and Tommy was finalized in March 1998 after a nine
month trial separation. Mariah has not remarried.

FAN QUESTIONS

F1. What unofficial fan clubs are there?

The following are web pages with information on currently active fan
organizations:

Brazil Mariah Forever Fan Club [free]
http://welcome.to/mariahforever/

Dutch Mariah Carey Association [F1 30,-- (Dutch guilders)]
http://huizen.dds.nl/~dmca/

Mariah Carey Fan Organization [$US20-25]
http://www.xs4all.nl/~mariah/mcfo/index.htm

The South African Mariah Carey Fan Club [free]

The following are the web pages of fan organizations which no longer appear
to be active:

The Fly Away Fan Club (Brazil) [unknown]
http://www.geocities.com/Eureka/7443/

The Italian Mariah Carey Fan Club [free]
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/5670/

Mariah Carey IRC Fan Web Site [free]
http://www.newageco.com/irc/

Mariah (Carey) Internet Fan Organization [free]
http://www2.southwind.net/~ksims/carey/mifo/

Singapore Mariah Carey Fan Club [free]
http://www.come.to/singaporemariahcarey/

All these fan clubs are unofficial and are not endorsed by Sony Music. I
cannot vouch for the legitimacy or otherwise of these organizations, and
whether they are worth their membership dues.

F2. How do I join Sony's official Mariah fan club?

The official fan club is a commercial enterprise run by Fan Emporium on
behalf of Mariah's management. They can be contacted at

FnEmp...@aol.com

or you can visit their web page at

http://www.fanemporium.com/mariah.html

As of December 1996, it costs $US28.00 to join the fan club (or $22.00 if you
live in the US). Renewal is cheaper at $US24.00 (or $18.00 in the US). Mail
your application or queries to one of the following addresses.

In the US, Europe and Australia (as well as other countries not listed
individually below):

Merchandise offers

(Editor's note: I am not a member of the club, so I cannot offer any advice
as to the quality of service they provide. My own personal thought is that
membership would offer little benefit. Commercial outfits of this kind are
there to make a profit, not to help fans.)

F3. Where do I write to Mariah Carey?

The preferred addresses are those of the Fan Emporium given in the previous
question. All the addresses I list below are fairly old, and I wouldn't rely
on any of them. Anyone with some better ones should contact me.

Mariah may possibly be reachable by mailing her record company, but don't
count on it. The most recent address I have is:

Mariah Carey
C/- Columbia Records
Sony Music Entertainment
550 Madison Ave
New York NY 10022
USA

F4. What are some Mariah collectables?

There are so many, I could never possibly hope to cover them all. Check
auction sites and the occasional announcements on the newsgroup and mailing
lists (particularly the marketplace list, see G7). Don't pay too much for the
items listed here- I save the most expensive items until the next question,
F5.

F5. What are some rare Mariah collectables?

One of the most highly valued Mariah Carey collectables (according to an
issue of Record Collector magazine) is one of two "greatest hits" promos
released for the Japanese concerts. Love and Dream, of which 200 copies were
produced, is currently valued at $US300. (The other is called Let's Party
With Mariah Carey- see question F4.) The promo issue of the Japanese picture
CD double set Open Arms/ One Sweet Day is an equally treasured rare item.

[Love And Dream (special Japanese tour promo; mixed set)]

SONG Title
1. All I Want For Christmas Is You
2/10. One Sweet Day
3. Hero
4. Open Arms
5. Miss You Most (At Christmas Time)
6/14. One Sweet Day (Live Version)
7. Vision Of Love
8. Underneath The Stars
9. Without You
11. Anytime You Need A Friend (C&C Radio Mix)
12. Open Arms
13. I'll Be There
15. Joy To The World
16. Fantasy

Sony Brazil recently released a rare CD promo containing remixes of
'Butterfly' by DJ Meme (Marcelo Mansur). Less than 100 copies were produced,
which could indicate this item would be of a high collectable value.

Other very rare items include:

(a) The Spanish 1-track wallet sleeve edition of 'Never Forget You'. Very few
(in the order of 100) of these were produced.

(b) The Australian bonus limited edition CD, supplied with copies of Mariah's
debut album (see M2(i)a for details). The set is very hard to obtain.

(c) The Canadian promo-only CD Unplugged- The Radio Special, which includes
music and an interview. The CD has a picture sleeve and a custom cue sheet.
It's rarity is indicated by the fact that it is currently valued at around
$US550.

(d) Underneath The Stars promo-only CD. This item is notably hard to get.

(e) Heroe single CD from Spain. Nobody seems to be selling these.

M10. Which songs have Spanish versions?

Mariah has recorded Spanish versions of one song from Music Box, Daydream and
Butterfly, in keeping with the native language of her father. These songs
(except Mi Todo, the Spanish version of My All) have appeared on singles and
albums in some countries- refer to the "Mariah Carey Singles Discography"
document [Ahmed] for information (see M2b(iii) to find where to get this).

In addition, each song from the Mariah Carey album has a Spanish version
registered in the BMI music database, however these have not been released,
and recordings may not even exist.

The Mariah Carey Newsgroup Frequently Asked Questions
(for rec.music.artists.mariah-carey)

Issue #039, 9th April 2001

TECHNICAL QUESTIONS

T1. What does the Merry Christmas CD Extra offer?

ALBUM Title Published Tracks UPC (Master) Length
Merry Christmas [CDX] Columbia 1995 10 CKR 66891 (DDD) 38:53

CD Extra (formerly called CD Plus) is a standard for multisession CDs
developed by a consortium including Sony and supported by Microsoft. The
Merry Christmas CD Extra disc currently contain two sessions. The main
session is the ten tracks that comprise Merry Christmas (US Version), and
this portion is playable on any standard CD player. This session complies
with the Red Book standard for audio CDs.

The interactive portion is available only on multisession drives. You should
check that your drive is multisession before you decide to invest in a CD
Extra. Most drives produced today are multisession devices.

Assuming that you have a compatible drive, you will also need baseline
hardware from either Apple or an IBM PC compatible running Windows. The
interactive program on the Merry Christmas CD requires a baseline processor
(at least 66MHz or 20MIPS), and a baseline video driver (supporting 800x600
at 256 colours), a reasonable sound system (at least 8 bit, 16 bit desirable)
and at least 8Mb of memory. Systems today should have no trouble meeting
these requirements.

Software to access the CD Extra is supplied on a separate standard Yellow
Book CD ROM, as are instructions to install it and test it. Once you have
installed this software, you can run the interactive program on the CD Extra.
If you have Microsoft Windows, you will need a CD Extra with a Windows
compatible interactive program. If you are using an Apple Macintosh, you will
need a Macintosh compatible CD Extra. On Windows 95, you will not need to use
the supplied driver software, as the operating system will automatically
recognise CD Extra discs.

The interactive program has many elements. Firstly, you have the option to
display the karaoke-style lyrics while playing the CD audio normally. Another
interactive portion allows the user to randomly access a discography of sound
samples from every track of every Mariah album, plus some video clips from
her full-length video releases.

A user-driven interview with Mariah shows a number of prerecorded video
interview clips where she answers questions about her feelings on Christmas
and the making of the album. The interview is set in a living room, and
Mariah is wearing one of her Christmas costumes, playing with the newest of
her dogs.

Two full-length video clips are also included, a mimed black and white
performance of All I Want For Christmas Is You, and a live performance of Joy
To The World. As well, an interactive photo album shows some holiday season
photographs of Mariah with some animation

The CD Extra does not appear to work on Windows NT. I would therefore say it
is unlikely to work on Windows 2000, which is based on the NT kernel. I have
not been able to test it with Windows 98 yet. These are the sort of
compatibility problems one must expect with multimedia releases that include
hard-wired platform-dependent software.

T2. What is the #Mariah_Carey chat channel all about?

I like to imagine the channel as a warm cosy little room in which Mariah
fan's gather together and discuss 'stuff'. Of course, we often talk about
Mariah stuff, but it's hardly a rule. It is not a channel to chat with Mariah
herself, however, and you should be aware that many people impersonate her,
mainly in good fun.

If you have a chat client program for IRC, you will need to point it to a
server computer on a chat network called Undernet. The channel called
#Mariah_Carey is on this network, and can be reached from many servers,
including:

[America and Australia]
ann-arbor.mi.us.undernet.org (Michigan)
davis.ca.us.undernet.org (California)
lowell.ma.us.undernet.org (Massachusetts)
vancouver.bc.ca.undernet.org (Canada- works well from Australia)
okc.ok.us.undernet.org
okc2.ok.us.undernet.org
au.undernet.org (Australia- usually disconnected from the world)


[Europe]
fr.undernet.org (France- also available from Australia as a last resort)
nl.undernet.org (Netherlands)
si.undernet.org
uk.undernet.org (United Kingdom)
eu.undernet.org

There is also a Java client for Undernet which can be used from within your
web browser. To get this, and to discover more about Undernet, visit the
Undernet web page at:

http://www.undernet.org/

To use IRC you choose a unique nickname (that people on IRC will refer to you
by) and connect to the server. Once connected, the IRC server responds to
commands. The command to connect to #Mariah_Carey is:

/join #Mariah_Carey

Simply introduce yourself by typing messages at the keyboard. Usually there
will be someone willing to help you get started with a few commands. But be
careful exactly what commands you type, as some people may try to trick you
into disclosing private information.

The Mariah chat channel of old (1993-1998) was called #Mariah. The
retrospective page is being resurrected (previously it was Sunbelt's work),
so watch this space.

T3. Does Mariah have any DVDs?

[DVDs (Digital Video Discs) are a very high density CD-like medium used for
storing compressed digital video of a very high quality. They will soon
replace VHS as the media of choice for video collectors. DVDs can be region
coded, which means they may not play in players outside their region.]

Yes, Mariah has three DVDs out. Her first, released only in Japan (region 2),
is called Daydream: From New York To Tokyo. The others were released
worldwide during 1999- Around The World and Number Ones- and come in NTSC
(all regions) and PAL (region 2) formats.

Details for DVDs are listed in the album videography (question M2f). The VH1
Divas Live concert is also available on DVD (this too is listed in M2f).

One would expect future video album releases also to be available as DVDs, as
well as a retrospecive publishing of previous video albums as DVDs.

Mariah had a small part in the movie The Bachelor, which is also available on
DVD.

MISCELLANEOUS QUESTIONS

X1. When was the newsgroup founded?

I personally like to set the date as being Monday 25th December 1995, the day
of the first Mariah Carey Internet Christmas party on IRC. The newsgroup was
created after my Call For Votes document drew 211 "yes" votes to 61 "no"
votes.


X2. What is MCT?

Mariah Carey Time (MCT) is New York time, or US Eastern Standard Time (EST),
which is 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT, or UTC). MCT is
traditionally used to arrange Internet chats between Mariah fans.

X3. What is The Gospel According To Vision?

The Gospel is a little joke about how fanatical some Mariah fans can be. It
begins something like this:

"In the beginning, there was the word, and the word was Mariah.
Mariah then proceeded to create God to keep her company."
- Archer 1:1

X4. What is all this AIWFCIY and AYNAF and DYTOM stuff?

These are abbreviations for Mariah's songs, derived from the initial capitals
in the song's title.

X5. What was "Crave"?

"Crave" was the name of Mariah's personal record label, set up two years ago.
A division of Sony Music Entertaiment, created to support new musical talent,
went through a massive series of changes around 1998. The changes lead Mariah
to be dissatisfied, and shortly after the label's operations were wound up,
with president Rick Basceglia and promotion chief Lisa Wolfe being reassigned
within the Sony Music family, which includes Columbia (to which Mariah
herself was previously signed) and Epic. The lack of support for Crave from
within Sony is probably one of the reasons Mariah's relationship with Sony
faltered and eventually dissolved last month.

Allure were the first artists to see the benefit of the label with their
self-titled debut release of May 1997, which has Mariah attributed with the
vocal arrangements. Their debut single Head Over Heels, written by Mariah,
did well in the charts, and their album and subsequent singles (including All
Cried Out, which featured male vocalists 112) have had similar success.
Allure will appear on the soundtrack of the movie "Woo" with the song Let It
Be, beating Mariah herself to a spot on a soundtrack.

SOAP, a female vocal group from Denmark, had a worldwide release of the
single This Is How We Party and self-titled album. DJ Company, the second
artist to have a release from Crave, had a limited release of their single
Rhythm Of Love in mid-1996. Luricia McNeal had a single released to Europe
and the US under the Crave label: Ain't That Just The Way. Prince Markie Dee
was another act signed to the label.

In 1998, BET's "Planet Groove" program featured Mariah introducing R&B group
7 Mile. The singles Just A Memory and Do Your Thing from their debut album
had moderate success in the US, but the male vocal failed to break into
overseas markets. The song After from 7 Mile's debut album was cowritten and
coproduced by Mariah.

Lil' Rachett, a rap artist now signed to Big Kid Records (see P1), was set to
release his debut album on Crave when it was disbanded. His album gives
producer credit to Mariah alongside her brother Morgan.

See M6 and M8 for information on other tracks Mariah has written and produced
for Crave artists.

X6. What is "Camp Mariah"?

Camp Mariah is a camp for kids from inner city areas so that they may
experience a more positive lifestyle and involve themselves in the Fresh Air
Fund's Career Awareness Programme. Mariah has done benefit concerts and
appeared in advertisements for the charity, donating both time and money. For
information, or to make donations, write to:

The Fresh Air Fund
1040 Avenue Of The Americas
New York NY 10018
USA

The Fresh Air Fund also have a web page at:

("Camp Mariah" is also the name of bootleg of the New York MSG thanksgiving
special. See question F4.)

The Mariah Carey Newsgroup Frequently Asked Questions
(for rec.music.artists.mariah-carey)

Issue #039, 9th April 2001

MUSICAL QUESTIONS

M1. How did Mariah come to be a recording artist?

At just two-and-a-half years of age, Mariah first demonstrated her vocal
talent by singing part of the Italian opera Rigoletto while her mother was
practising. After Mariah's parents were divorced in 1973, Mariah's mother
began to give her voice lessons, and in 1976 Mariah made her public debut.

During her teenage years, from about age 14, she sang on demo tapes at
various recording studios around Long Island, New York. Mariah began writing
songs with her friend Ben Margulies at about age 16, and in 1986 cut her
first demo with her brother.

After graduating from high school in 1987, and leaving home to persue her
ambitions, Mariah spent some time as a waitress and hat check girl.
Eventually she got the chance to audition as a concert background vocalist
for Brenda K Starr, and that turned out to be the break she needed. While
attending a recording industry party with Starr in 1988, she was introduced
to CBS Music president Tommy Mottola, and the demo cassette she handed him
was her ticket to a recording contract with the label (see M7).

M2. What songs has Mariah recorded?


M2a. FINDING INFORMATION ABOUT DISCS AND SONGS

If you are looking for information on the contents of Mariah's albums, a list
of widely released singles, or information on the content of singles widely
released in the past three years (including those from the albums Butterfly,
Rainbow and Number Ones), then continue below.

If you know the title of the song you are looking for, and want to find what
album (or single) it appears on, refer to the song name index in question X4.
(That question will also help you decipher abbreviations.)

Starting from issue 35, fully detailed track lists will no longer appear for
discs. It was felt that, while this is a useful resource (and is therefore
maintained on the FAQ web site), it did not allow readers to rapidly find
information about particular songs. Over the coming months, this section will
be expanded to include more of the information that was presented in tabular
format in previous issues. At any rate, I think you will agree that
readability is much improved.

If you require fully detailed track lists, or information on singles released
more than three years ago, the original tabular data presented in previous
issues is still being maintained, and can be found (in full) in the Mariah
Carey FAQ Supplementary Discography:

http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/6413/MCFAQ-supp.html

Please note that both the single discography appearing below and the
supplementary version on the FAQ website are not exhaustive. For an
exhaustive document I recommend the Mariah Carey Singles Discography [Ahmed],
which is available by asking the authors nicely at <ahm...@yahoo.com>.
