Say It Isn't So

Please. She is no Elvis and certainly not the Beatles.
Mariah Ties Elvis With Number One Single: "With 17 chart-toppers, she now ties Elvis Presley at No. 2 on the all-time list, and becomes the only artist to post two No. 1 songs on the Hot 100 in 2005.

'Don't Forget About Us' is also Carey's 16th No. 1 as a songwriter, tying with Barry Gibb for third place. Only Paul McCartney with 32 and John Lennon with 26 have more.

(Many Elvis fans claim the King had 18 No. 1 hits, citing Joel Whitburn's indispensable tome 'Top Pop Singles.' But he differs from Billboard in some key respects, and counts the double-sided single 'Don't Be Cruel'/'Hound Dog' as two No. 1 hits, while Billboard counts it as one.)"
I couldn't name a song of hers unlike some of the other examples. Do people swoon outside of her concerts?
