Mariah Carey Brings It Almost Home In Oz The Great & Powerful Theme Song! Listen In Full HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersMariah Carey


We certainly didn't anticipate THIS would be the direction Mariah Carey would take when we first got a sneak peek of her single for the Oz The Great & Powerful soundtrack over the weekend!

In fact, we weren't even sure that it was ACTUALLY HER when we started listening to the full version!

But yes, Almost Home has arrived in its glorious entirety, and even if the diva sounds as though she's singing the first portion of the song while floating through the high altitudes far above the ground in the title character's hot air ballon, this is DEFINITELY one you should stick with all the way through!

The runs at the end are OUT OF CONTROL…and CLASSIC Mimi!

Believe us! It's a grower, folks!

Give it a listen (above)!

What do U think?? Are U feeling Almost Home?

    Mariah has amazing talent, so it's too bad she used autotune and enhancers. It gave a fake feeling to her voice. The song was ok - nothing you'd listen to on its own, but it's perfect as a backdrop to a fantasy movie like Oz.

    It's really good. You have to listen a 2nd time to really appreciate it!! WOW MARIAH IS BACK! AND ON FIRE!!!!! Davizzle

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – Totally agree. Why is it that one of the best voices on the planet has such a hard time finding a good song to sing?

  4. 4

    I like it!!

  5. AlmostHome says – reply to this


    Right Perez… MC need to stick with something like this … I Love Almost Home !!! It's a Fun Record :)

  6. Badnfluenz says – reply to this


    this is COMPLETE GARBAGE! When Judy Garland released 'Somewhere over the Rainbow' it was so hauntingly beautiful! The crap makes me not want to see the movie!

  7. Gigi says – reply to this


    I like it, don't love it. But it's perfect for a Disney movie. I cannot wait for her new album !!

  8. Ashton says – reply to this


    This is perfection! Mariah needs to stick to these types of power-vocal songs for her new album!! I can smell success.

    Like I said yesterday, I loves it!!!

  12. izzy says – reply to this


    It's disappoitning. Lyrically, musically - this song is empty. Mariah lost control of her vocalization, which seems to be placed wrong. Her voice sounds unnatural, almost bionic (too much auto-tune). Its too poppy. She forgot that she used to be an artist.

  13. Tru u says – reply to this


    Wow, I to am shocked at the direction of the song. I didn't expect it like you and for once we agree. But I like it and it's classic Mariah/Disney song.

  14. 14

    amazing!!! smash hit wonder!!!

  15. 15

    Very Plain and actually quite annoying…

  16. Bo says – reply to this


    I actually LOVE this! I hope it can be a hit for her!

  17. KC says – reply to this


    Love it. She sounds like she used to in the 90s

  18. 18

    different and unique. love it!!! buy it on itunes tomorrow!!!!!!!

  19. Christopher says – reply to this


    Brilliant! Bringin' it Home, gurl!

  20. TeamMariah says – reply to this


    I really like the beats she's using in the song which I think is new for her.

    Even though her voice may (to some) sound auto tune, the fact is she CAN sing every note live. She will sing this song live better than the studio version, like some of her other songs. And there should be a live version released too…

    For non-"lambs", Mariah can single a word twice and create an echo effect live which she has done a number of times. Her higher octaves switches with so much ease, especially since the holidays.

  21. Roland Cannon says – reply to this


    Loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Thissssssssssssss MCCCCCCC

  22. tasha says – reply to this


    This is definitely not a grower. Mariah needs to lose the autotune and the beat is so generic it could be any other edm music out there. No originality at all.

  23. 23

    Give the girl a break people. The song will grow on ya. She tried a different approach and fits perfect for a Disney song. It will be a Hit for her. She is THE VOICE of ALL time and Has NOTHING to prove to the negative haters out there. Mariah Co-wrote this feel good track. Love MC!! She is always on Fire!!

  24. Tony says – reply to this


    Amazing. Love the new direction. Sure to be a hit. !

  25. 25

    the lyrics in the first verse are actually amazing. she's so underrated as a songwriter. i put her up there with carol king. this WILL be a huge hit. titanic song huge.

  26. johnparis says – reply to this


    I love the song!!!! A different MC..

  27. 27

    FINALLY!! A new Mariah Carey song that I can listen all the way through. Definitely a good radio hit and possibly 'good-bye' theme for exiting contestants.

  28. 28

    o, ps it sounds a bit like something Alicia Keys would do

  29. Nickade says – reply to this


    I love it! She should do this kindcofvmusic, not rap like truimphant.. Do I smell à billboard top 10 perhaps?

  30. Tyler says – reply to this


    Sorry a lot of you will probably disagree but this is her best song since We Belong Together. I love that the whispering is non-existent and that she's singing in full voice again.

  31. Jakkary says – reply to this


    This song great; Mariah sounds amazing and it has such a catchy melody!

  32. Calvin says – reply to this


    People need to learn what autotune is. Autotune is what T Pain uses; what Lil Wayne uses; what Mariah used on Obsessed… You can quite clearly hear the robotic effect of it. Autotune has not been used here, however she has modified the runs. Her runs were never that slick and they certainly aren't now (just look at her abysmal live performances). her vanity was the death of her voice. From her first nose job to her last, it has effectively ruined her beautiful talent. She sounds so nasally now. And the song is boring. Not terrible, but certainly not great. Ill be surprised if it even charts.

  33. Bobby says – reply to this


    #AlmostHome is the catchest song she has released in years and her voice is sounding better then ever. I love how her voice actually outshines the effects on it which show they are just there for the feel of the track. Everyone I know is loving and buzzing about this song it's without a doubt her 19th #1.

  34. James says – reply to this


    Re: izzy – I agree with you completely. I'm disappointed by this song. The days of Mariah's best work are behind her, when she used to put real effort and artistry into her music e.g. the Butterfly album. This song is too poppy, and is pretty much is her following trends again. The song lacks the soul and depth of songs like My All. All the little "Mimi" fans are gonna say they love it though. They would still love it if she put out a song composed entirely of farts, so whatever.

  35. Jake says – reply to this


    One of the most beautiful, pure, moving voices of all time. Every time I hear her, she gives me goosebumps and makes me cry. The song itself is a little short and seems to lack something, but it's much better than "Triumphant". I think this may reinvent her as "We Belong Together" did: in both songs, she's using contemporary/radio-friendly beats of the moment, whilst still being undeniably "MC"!

  36. Muzik says – reply to this


    Y'ALL NEED TO CHILL THE F OUT. This song is MASSIVE. Set aside her diva behaviour, ridiculousness - you can't deny her TALENT. Mariah is a musician. The harmonies, lyrics, vocal stylings… Stop worshiping Katy Perry, Rihanna and Kesha. This woman is the real deal!

  37. Tom Lloyd says – reply to this



  38. usherfan says – reply to this


    LMAO to all some hates here. You can't expect her to sing the way she sang 20 years ago. Like what the f**k, our voice changes people.

    I'm not a hardcore fan but i like the entirety of the song. The lyrics, the beat and her voice. She may not sound the same but she still has that x factor that appeases everyone who hear her sing. Leave her be.

  39. Wilma says – reply to this


    Re: Tru u – It is a Disney soundtrack. She sound amazing! Shut up and listen!

  40. Wilma says – reply to this


    Re: izzy – IT is a Disney soundtrack. She sound great! Shut up and listen or get out!

  41. Wilma says – reply to this


    Re: James – Stop comparing it to her old work when 1. people's voice ages (but she still has one) 2. this is a DISNEY song for a MOVIE! Totally different entities than her "Butterfly" era!

  42. 42

    Sorry Haters This Song is already Getting Chart Topping reviews by the EXPERTS HAHA!!! Go MC!!! Fine you don't like her, or the song? Why be negative? You just sound ignorant.

  43. honey zhe says – reply to this


    This is gonna be a smash hit all over the radio coz it's a promotional song for OZ the Great and Powerful Movie that will be an advantage…In addition to that this is not hiphop/r&b so its a radio friendly coz its a full POP..she uses her midrange falsetto (if I am not mistaken) This will be playing at end part of the movie for sure "end Credit"

    I love the way Mariah invent her style and do different style every album..so thats why mimi has a full of haters. they cant copy mimi or duplicate her :) thats why I admire her since 1990 ..I grew up her music and shes my music to my ear. Haters will be Hater, accept the fact that no one ever can sing Mariahs song no one ever….coz if u do thats suicide :)

    Mimi the LEGEND of Music …Queen of Remix

  44. jeff says – reply to this


    Love how all you mariah haters think you are musical geniuses, meanwhile you probably idolize Rhianna or Nikki minaj who have zero talent!! Sit down and shut up if you dont like mariah keep it moving, she may not chart anymore and ahe may never have a #1 song again, but she is still the greatest singer of our time!!!! thanks luv ya buh-bye

  45. Rafael says – reply to this


    It's a Disney song for crying out loud! The song fits the movie theme perfectly and Mariah's voice is certainly spot on. The ending brings you home, for sure. It's not a CLASSIC Mariah of the 90s type of song. It's a pop song for a Disney move, it fits well.

    I wish people would stop complaining about her using autotune. Her voice doesn't sound robotic at all on this track, the effects they used is to fit the instrumental, which brings some electronic effects at the bridge.

    It's a grower and the end is what all the "oh, how I want the old Mariah back" fans want it, so just sit back, enjoy it and you can picture yourself being brought home after this. Congrats, Mariah for another great pop jam!

  46. Eddie says – reply to this


    Re: Bobby – Nose job Bullshit! She never done that! Wake up!!!

  47. @v@ says – reply to this


    This is GREAT. Absolutely great. She's suddenly jumped another skill level here vocally and her game has officially upped. Instead of annoying vocal gymnastics, this is instead interesting as hell to listen to. How did she do that? This is a much better mix than the sample, and her voice isn't buried by instrumentation. Good going, Mariah! Impressed!

  48. 48

    What are you talking about "direction"?! This is actually a return, this could be a 90's Mariah track easily. I dig it, I'm so sick of her doing the sexy sista thing.

  49. Thy says – reply to this


    She made it ..we're definitely home again! Love you MIMI!

  50. kyle says – reply to this


    This is a really great song. Impressive vocals as always. Some of you don't even know what auto tune sounds like. She's not using any of it in this song. If she uses auto tune, she would have sounded like T-pain. Idiots.

  51. You worst nightmare says – reply to this


    No one reads these comments because no one cares. BTW I LOVE THIS SONG👑THE VOICE IS BACK!

  52. Ulooklikeshit says – reply to this


    I know, I wish they picked your song for the movie over this one. What does she know about hits anyway?

  53. James says – reply to this


    Why are people accusing people of being "Mariah haters" just because they criticize a song by her. I've been a fan of Mariah's since 1997. Fine, this song is for a Disney soundtrack, I respect that. That being said, her debut single, whatever it is, needs to be something soulful, jazzy like she did when she first came out. Go back to your roots Mariah. All this commercial stuff is bs. My opinion, not a hater, and definitely not a Rihanna, Gaga lover lol.

  54. 54

    The fiirst line where she sings the word dark..which is a one syllable word, with 8 notes…is as far as I got…This will tank big style

  55. WTF? says – reply to this


    ^^ Your name is Shaniqua Jones….you be quiet.

  56. Rita says – reply to this


    Re: Eddie – LOL! YES SHE HAS! She's had several nose jobs. I can't believe youre so deluded to believe otherwise. She looks like a completely different person now, compared to the natural beauty that burst out onto the scene in the early 90's. Her nostrils are now smaller and 'less black', her entire nose is a lot smaller, the tip and bone is more defined and the septum has been pushed upwards… Her surgeries are easy to see. She looks ugly now. She used to be sexy as hell.

  57. emil says – reply to this


    I love it! it's a mix of pop and rnb, very fresh and catchy! I'm sure this will be a HIT

  58. claudia says – reply to this


    OMG definitely a grower! each time it's better. Didn't even know Maria carey was releasing a new song so thank U PH for sharing this with us, am I the only one who is on 'repeat mode'? :) the end is spectacular!

  59. Jordan says – reply to this


    Re: Calvin – she doesn't have a nose job, idiot. And you're so negative. The singing is awesome. Take your negative ass somewhere else. People love to hate. The song has only been out for a day and it's people like you who can't wait to bash it.

  60. Éric says – reply to this


    Re: claudia – same for me i've been repeating it like 10 Times allready today

  61. 61

    So happy there have been mostly positive reviews for this new Mimi song! Im a LAMB4LIFE and nothing makes me happier then seeing Mariah succeed in music because music is her passion! An amazing song! An amazing voice! :) :) :) :)

  62. PP.O says – reply to this


    Re: Jordan – Mariah has definitely 100% had a nose job. And fuck off with your 'negativity' shit. Everyone's entitled to an opinion. Mariah sold out using autotune or whatever effects shes used to create those vocal runs. She did it with Oh Santa whistle note and more or less half of the complex runs here.

  63. sevgi says – reply to this


    when she sings "to find the kingdom I believe in", that's the Mariah Carey from the 90's, but it also has Disney all over it, very nice! so to all you haters out there, big WHATEVER to you! She is a living legend!!

    I love that mariah used her full voice. Love this song!

    Re: Kittens With Mittens – Listening to it firstly i just couldn't catch it. But later it is so.. great.. It is truely amazing.. something like FANTASY .. and raw.. it is not fake for me at all… because i can toouch it all…!!!

  66. Juncko says – reply to this


    Re: Calvin – it may be sounds like nosal.. The true nosal sound is a sound that is uncompleted when you listened to it. But Mariah's is not. I can hear its a complete tone.

    Re: PP.O – Mariah just has a beautiful and supreame performance in singin'.. The techniques used in the studio just make it more colorful and more vibrancy.. Like making a diamond shines over through a prism .. People just listen to it with more imagination to make the song feels more beautifulistique to them.

  72. tahoegeminii says – reply to this


    if MeMe's "talent" was sooo amazing she wouldn't need filters, autotune and enhancers-get it!!! MeMe is a Sony studio creation and has been lip syncing any so called live performance since she was married to Tommy-she is a fraud and this totally generic rerun has been song is just a back ground filler for a movie-it's not a single or something anyone would ever listen to unless they watch the flick-and she is screwing that up for me as well-if this is any indication then the sound track to Oz is boring-boring and aparently the visual effects are the main attraction-it certainly isn't this boring reject of a lamo song

    yeah didn't expect it to go in this direction. its a bit dancy n I love it!! love how she plays with her voice… and yes there was some autune added.. its called creativity. .. and unlike these otha hoochies mariah can actually sing it without autotunes… wack ass people hating. I think she has some luck with this one! #Slayed.

  77. 77

    OMG I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooove this…I bought it already…this jam is jamming babes! Its all over my iphone! At first I didn´t even recognize Mariah, but that has nothing to do with autotune it has to do with the fact that she is singing differently, she explored another of the many textures of her voice! I simply love the song, it was beautifully written, very well produced and her vocals here sound as strong and spot on as they did in the 90s and mid 2000's. I must have played this song over 100 times today! This had everything to be a chart topper! LUUUUUV it!

  78. babyt says – reply to this


    BTW Mariah handles this track!! Love it! really grows on u!

    OMG i really love her but… She completely lost her voice and she needs a metallic and fake sound to hide her incapability and make fans believe it's a sort of artistic choice. Love when Perez says that he wasn't sure it's her singing. Actually that's the thing: it's not real and I'm not deaf: no more soul, no more voice. It's all about image, Billboard and fake high notes. Music is not just about that. Sorry Mariah! Maybe the one you have to go almost home … is you!
