Note to Mariah Carey............

....stay the fuck away from Auld Lang Syne

It sounded like someone trying to sing it in an American accent; for exaggerated effect.

I wish you had not made that version known to me, I could have easily lived my whole life without any knowledge of it, I would have preferred it that way.

I understand disliking it, but not for the accent. OF course she's singing it in an American accent. It's American pop. That's how it goes. The only thing I have a problem with is the techno-like background that kicks in after the first round that sounds so hokey. It sounds like someone who is making fun of pop.

I've never particularly cared for the song to begin with. I don't quite see what's so bad about Mariah's busty version of the song.

Actually, one of the things I liked about this was that the melisma was turned down. At least, it was for the good part of the song before the drum track kicked in.

The green-screening in the video is really lame, but I liked the song. Her voice is angelic.

Well shit. All these years of Mariah Carey in the news every so often and I don't pay one bit of attention because, for some reason or another, I was under the impression her breasts were much less eye-catching.

How long should I leave the video at 0:15 to make up for years of not appreciating her, talents?

Ah yes, the "Loren." A very popular model... unfortunately not eligible for our current promotion, but perhaps you'd be interested in the "Mansfield"?
