Happy Birthday, Mariah!

Long before she was a judge on American Idol, Mariah Carey was cranking out hit after hit. In fact she is one of the best selling artists of all time.

Since her 1990 debut, Mariah has sold more than 200 million records worldwide and has racked up 18 number one singles!

"One Sweet Day", a duet with Boyz II Men, spent a record setting 16 weeks at number one and remains the longest running number one single of all time.

I have played many a Mariah tune in my long, sad radio career and could not possibly pick just her 5 biggest hits, so I will pick my 5 personal favorite Mariah tunes and of course, if you would like to add a track that I missed, post away!

Here is the one that started it all and one of her best.

This is a personal favorite of mine that shows off Mariah's gospel influences.

Great song with a clever sample from the tune "Genius Of Love"

"We Belong Together" Mariah's big comeback hit from 2005

Okay, I am picking 6! Mariah hooks up with Puffy...or Diddy or whatever he called himself back then.
