Today is Mariah Carey‘s birthday, and as a companion piece to Mariah’s 43 best facial expresions, we wanted to celebrate this glorious occasion by counting down her 43 all-time best songs. Since her debut LP, Mariah Carey, dropped back in 1990, no other artist has had the kind of chart success that Mimi has enjoyed: 27 Top 10 singles —18 of which went all the way to #1— and six albums that topped the Billboard 200. So, what we’re saying is that there was a lot of debate about what songs from her amazing catalog should make the list.

We’ve made this Spotify playlist of Mariah Carey’s 43 Best Songs so you can enjoy the entire compilation (minus “Don’t Forget About Us,” which isn’t on Spotify for some reason) whenever you’d like. But now, without further ado, here it is…
