For The Record

  • Carey: "'For The Record' - the song, is one of my favorite songs on this album, it's one of those songs that the people who really are fans of mine, who really know my music really well, tend to gravitate towards because it's not only is it kind of a real-life story, but I've used a lot of my own songs in the bridge to tell the story. Towards the outro I say 'For the record, You'll always be a part of me, No matter what you do' - that's 'Always Be My Baby' and we kinda go through, you know, 'Can't nobody say / I didn't give my all to you,' the real fans who listen and then hear: 'I told you underneath the stars,' they'll know that's for them. I'm really happy that people are feeling the song."
