Would you agree with Perez Hilton on the “mediocre” comment?
When I first heard that Mariah Carey will be doing a version of Foreigner’s I Wanna Know What Love Is for her up coming (yet again) album, I tried to contemplate if she can pull it off. Thinking that maybe, at least maybe, there might be some wonders that the once perfect vocals of Mimi will be heard once again on this song. I know Mimi will do everything that she can just to twist the attention to her from the release of the come back album of Whitney Houston on the 31st.
Last night, after the inconceivable, indescribable and beyond one’s wildest dream TRAFFIC in Katipunan and Libis, I got an email from That Grape Juice in facebook that the much awaited single is out. I right away check YouTube to listened on it on my phone and to my surprise, I was disgruntled!
To be honest with all of you, I keep on playing the track on the back ground just to make sure that I am writing my opinion right. Hoping that at least at one point, that I might have heard wrong and write some good points on her rendition. But sorry Orville and Sherwin, it was really not Good. It was really a Mediocre at its best. All I can hear is her whispers and squeals.
In doing a revival, there is one thing that you have to remember. Make the song your own and better what the original singer did and be remember on that. In her version, all I can remember is that she ruined all the melodies and it’s like she is so out there trying to win back all the attentions she had before. Ok, ok the vocals are good but can she pull it off LIVE? Can’t wait! Just make sure to pull it off like Wynona Judd. I better of listening to Tina Arena than hers.
