So I was sitting at work using every excuse not to do my actual job and trying to think about a good blog topic for today, when suddenly Britney Spears' "I wanna go" came on the radio and SHAZAM inspiration!
Any who, I thought it would be fun to make a list of my top 10 Britney Spears songs. There is no order really except for #1. So here you go.
#10- Boys-(2002) One of her fairly popular tunes that made you want to run around like some Hollywood Socialite pushing extremely hot guys off of you that were just throwing themselves at your feet to be in you presence. Inspiring…”Boys, sometimes a girl just needs one…”
#9- If You Seek Amy-(2009) Now, I have to give it to Miss Spears, purposely and creatively writing a song that just so happens to sound like something completely different that the title, a sort of hidden message. Nice!”But all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy". Doesn’t make much sense right, well sound it out people (IFFFFF YOUUU SEEEEEEE KKKKKAAAA ME) .
#8-Overprotected-(2001) I believe this came out the same time her
terrible AWESOME movie did, “Crossroads”. Of course teen girls all over the world were inspired to break free of their parents and/or boyfriends and to stop being “overprotected” because “all they want to do is live their lives”…. And you know the whole “I can’t help the way I feel, but my life has been so overprotected.” Yes, little 15 year olds all over the U.S,-live your life, stick it to the man, GIRL POWER, and all that jazz.
#7-I’m a slave for you-(2001) Now that I am 22 and can fully understand the lyrics I see why some parents did NOT enjoy their daughters rocking out to Britney. I was 11 when this song came out and thought it was the best song ever. I also thought she was the coolest person for wearing pants with that belt/bloomers thing over them in the music video. AND THEN at the MTV music awards, she came out with the snake. “Get it get it get it get it, Woooohhhhaaa”. Bravo Britney...Bravo.
#6- Do something-(2005) It was the fall of 2005, I was 17 and thought “Laguna Beach” was the best thing since sliced bread. Every time I hear this song I think of an episode on Laguna Beach where Kristin was being her
bitchy pleasant self. All I can really remember is some 5 minute scene happening where a grand total 3 complete sentences were said and then the camera just went back and forth showing people’s faces while “Do something” played in the background. And to this day when I hear this song I just want to walk in a club or party in slow motion with jealous frenimies watching me with envy in their eyes wising they were the ones dating Brody Jenner Trevor Davis.
#5- Stronger-(2000) “Because I’m stronger than yesterday. Now it’s nothing but my way; my loneliness ain’t killing me no more…I… I”MMMM STRONGER” Now that is a power ballad if I have ever heard one. Who could forget her video choreography with the chair. I was like 11 when this came out, but I probably listened to it 100 times. It inspired me. I was going to wreck junior high. Don’t ask me why I was “stronger”; I was 11, clearly dramatic and most likely annoying to anyone over the age of 13. Have to admit though, still a good song and still on my IPOD.
#4- Hit Me Baby One More Time-(1998) WOW, I was in 3rd or 4th grade depending on what time of the year this song hit radio waves. B. Spears debuted her first single that took the world by storm. All I can really remember is wanting to in the Mickey Mouse Club so that I could be her friend because she was SO COOL. Definitely a classic that should be played at every bachelorette party.
#2-Toxic-(2004) If you didn’t know, this song was deemed her favorite song of her career. And for good reason too. It’s catchy, the music video had her wearing either nothing but diamonds or that adorable stewardess outfit, and at the time no other song sounded anything like it. I really don’t have much of an explanation except for that I totally love this song, and it will always be a guilty pleasure of mine.
#1-Oops I did it Again-(2000) You think Britney Spears, you think "Oops I did it again". This song came with the “out of this world” (literally) music video staged on a Mars like planet, that full-body pleather, red jump suit and the extremely catchy chorus. Despite the slightly unintelligent title of the song, I loved it when I was 13 and I love it now when I’m 22. I
Honorable mentioned B.Spears songs.- Sometimes, Lucky, Kill the Lights, Circus, Outrageous, Born to Make you Happy, and Satisfaction. Thanks for the memories Britney.
