I’ve delayed coming out with this because one of the songs I was going to use just happened to pop up in today’s survey. I said, "nah, I shouldn’t use it in both places." Then I decided to do it anyway.
It all started with Hans’s post a week or so ago, where he featured Mariah Carey’s "Vision Of Love." As I watched the video I kept thinking about another, similar artist, Chicago native Jody Watley, and how similar they seemed, at least to me.
I decided I’d put them up in battle against each other, because the whole idea of Mariah and Jody battling appealed to me (and that’s all I’m going to say about that; draw your own conclusions).
Mariah Carey, "Someday"
From her eponymous 1990 debut album. Wikipedia says it’s a combination R&B, New Jack Swing, and dance-pop song. It reached #1 on the Hot 100 and Dance charts in 1990.
Jody Watley, "Looking For A New Love"
From Jody’s eponymous 1987 album, this dance-pop hit reached #2 on the Hot 100 and #1 on the Dance chart in 1987.
