Day 5 . . .

Day 5 - A Song That Reminds You Of Someone

A dance at prom to Mariah Carey's Can't Let Go - appropriately cheesy!

This song taken off of Mariah's second album Emotions was pure pop perfection.

Love her or hate her; Mariah was the first artist to capitalize on the strategy of "Strike While The Iron Is Hot" - (Think Lady Gaga of today releasing four singles before her album is even out or Rihanna's back to back albums.)  Mariah released a full length album almost every year from 1990 to 2000 and these were not just filler; she had radio hits on all of them!  One more thing; Mariah writes or co-writes almost all of her own material!

So it's no shock that she went a little crazy by the time 2001's Glitter came out.  Girlfriend was just TIRED! 

I say throw Mariah a bone - she gave us a lot of good music!  That is why I have stayed a true fan through the good and the bad.

Finally - The winner of the Just Jon's 3rd Birthday Mug Give Away is Loyal Reader Sean!  I am sure Sean's Loyal Reader wife Erin will also utilize this prize.

  3. Wow. This is so unexpected. It's something you dream about your whole life but you never think you will be the one to win Just Jon Java Jugs.
    First, I'd like to thank Jon for brightening my day, every day, when I check his blog.
    Secondly, I would like to thank my beautiful wife who types everything for me, and for introducing me to Just Jon. Without her, none of this would have been possible.
    Lastly, thank you to Loyal Readers Mom and Dad for bringing us Jon.
    Truly, this is an honor I will never forget.
    Thank you Jon. I will collect my Jugs when we come see you for a game.
    Love ya!
