JUST WALK ME DOWN: The Wit and Wisdom of Ms. Mariah Carey - marco

Jan. 1st, 2017 02:42 pm JUST WALK ME DOWN: The Wit and Wisdom of Ms. Mariah Carey

just walk me down
we can't hear it but...
we didn't have a check for this song so we'll just say it went to #1 and that's what it is.
We're missing some of this it's over but it is what it is
I'm gonna sit and let the audience sing, ok?
We didn't have a soundcheck but it's New Years baby. It's OK.
Get these monitors on please.
I want a holiday too. Can I not have one?
I'm trying to be a good sport here.
That was... amazing.
This is the album version so I'm just gonna let you put this skirt on me and sing along a bit.
You just don't get any better.

When Pavarotti couldn't hit his highest C anymore he gave some really great performances hitting everything else and just being humble about what he couldn't do as an old man. I think what bothered me the most about this entire performance is that she embedded the highest notes that she can no longer hit into the backing tracks. Not humble at all. It's terrible seeing your heroes fall. I've been following her career since one of my bosses in the army shared his copy of her "Weakness of the Body" demo. She was amazing. No smoke and mirrors, just lots of talent and decent producing. Nowadays, not so much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttypA4rjfDo
