The Mariah Carey Newsgroup FAQ


Issue #039, 9th April 2001

This FAQ is quite out of date. I am hoping to review the information and create a new version in the coming months.—Archer Nov '03


M1. How did Mariah come to be a recording artist?

At just two-and-a-half years of age, Mariah first demonstrated her vocal talent by singing part of the Italian opera Rigoletto while her mother was practising. After Mariah's parents were divorced in 1973, Mariah's mother began to give her voice lessons, and in 1976 Mariah made her public debut.

During her teenage years, from about age 14, she sang on demo tapes at various recording studios around Long Island, New York. Mariah began writing songs with her friend Ben Margulies at about age 16, and in 1986 cut her first demo with her brother.

After graduating from high school in 1987, and leaving home to persue her ambitions, Mariah spent some time as a waitress and hat check girl. Eventually she got the chance to audition as a concert background vocalist for Brenda K Starr, and that turned out to be the break she needed. While attending a recording industry party with Starr in 1988, she was introduced to CBS Music president Tommy Mottola, and the demo cassette she handed him was her ticket to a recording contract with the label (see M7).

M2. What songs has Mariah recorded?


If you are looking for information on the contents of Mariah's albums, a list of widely released singles, or information on the content of singles widely released in the past three years (including those from the albums Butterfly, Rainbow and Number Ones), then continue below.

If you know the title of the song you are looking for, and want to find what album (or single) it appears on, refer to the song name index in question X4. (That question will also help you decipher abbreviations.)

Starting from issue 35, fully detailed track lists will no longer appear for discs. It was felt that, while this is a useful resource (and is therefore maintained on the FAQ web site), it did not allow readers to rapidly find information about particular songs. Over the coming months, this section will be expanded to include more of the information that was presented in tabular format in previous issues. At any rate, I think you will agree that readability is much improved.

If you require fully detailed track lists, or information on singles released more than three years ago, the original tabular data presented in previous issues is still being maintained, and can be found (in full) in the Mariah Carey FAQ Supplementary Discography:

Please note that both the single discography appearing below and the supplementary version on the FAQ website are not exhaustive. For an exhaustive document I recommend the Mariah Carey Singles Discography [Ahmed], which is available by asking the authors nicely at &lt .


Mariah Carey's studio albums are (in chronological order):

Mariah has released one compilation including new tracks:

Mariah has one EP:

All of these albums are available on Compact Disc, Compact Cassette and MiniDisc on Sony Music Entertainment's Columbia Records label (formerly CBS Records).

Mariah has also made some guest appearances on other artists' solo albums:

These albums are available on the Epic or Columbia Records labels from Sony Music Entertainment.

Additionally, in Australia, Mariah's self-titled debut album was issued with a bonus interview disc at one stage.

In terms of singles, the following have had a wide release:

In addition, Mariah has some rare studio-produced tracks which are not on all versions of albums or singles around the world. These include the so-called Spanish songs Heroe and El Amor Que Sone (see M10) and the so-called B-sides Everything Fades Away (on non-US Music Box versions), Do You Think Of Me (on the Dreamlover minisingle), Slipping Away (on some minisingles) and Do You Know Where You're Going To (on some non-US Number Ones versions). See M2d(i) for information.
