Terrible Songs To Blast At Full Volume While Driving Home From Work On A Friday - "Love Takes Time" by Mariah Carey

Its Friday and who doesn't get that extra adrenaline surge when they're driving that first mile from work...maybe going straight home, or maybe going a happy hour?  It's a great feeling and sometimes that feeling can be enhanced by a great song on the radio...a horribly great song.  This semi-regular Friday column talks about some of the songs that I have enjoyed at a very loud volume, sometimes even singing along to, during these drives. First up, "Love Takes Time" by Mariah Carey.

Mariah Carey has had two musical styles to her career.  There was the balladry pop side of Mariah which was from 1991-1996 ("Vision Of Love", "Emotions", and the entire "Unplugged" CD.  Then there was her urban side from 1997 and beyond (songs like "Honey". "Butterfly", "Dreamlover").  I'm a HUGE fan of the early days (ANYTIME YOU NEED A FRIEND...I WILL...BE HEEEEEEEEERE!!!) and this song is no exception.  I give you the brilliant "Love Takes Time".

I'm not going to do a running timecode commentary for these but instead, you should just let the music play for your full volume.

Part that gives me those extra special douche chills: the first time Mariah hits that chorus at the 0:46 mark....mmmmmmm.

Enjoy the weekend everybody.
