The Sixth Day offers action in the Arnold Schwarzenegger style. Well, not right away. Ah-nuld is no killer robot this time. He's Adam Gibson, a charter pilot who likes being a homebody with his wife (Wendy Crewson) and daughter (Taylor-Anne Reid). Then he gets cloned. A billionaire bad guy (Tony Goldwyn), in league with a scientist (Robert Duvall), is playing God for fun and profit. Adam gets pissed — of course — and whatever satirical digs director Roger Spottiswoode (Tomorrow Never Dies) hoped to take at genome technology quickly degenerate into the usual bang-bang.

    Mariah Carey | 1995

    Serendipity stuck when Mariah Carey rediscovered the glitchy Tom Tom Club hook, a sample of which is the heart of this upbeat slice of dance pop. "I had the melody idea for 'Fantasy' and I was listening to the radio and heard 'Genius of Love,' and I hadn't heard it in a long time," Carey said. "It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
