The hook is addicting, and it has one of the best lines ever sung in music... "Me and Mariah go back like babies with pacifiers!"

This song brings me back, It's the perfect summer song. I remember "Fantasy" was a yet another huge hit for Mariah Carey. I don't know anyone that doesn't LOVE this song! One of the best songs of all time!
