I was listening to the 'Britney' album the other day and the original 'Boys' came on. Why, oh WHY did they release such a LAME remix as the single? I watched the video and can't think of ANYTHING I like about it - it's so forced and utterly JOYLESS. Pharrell couldn't look more "CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATION" if he tried, the Austin Powers cameo is NAFF, it's clearly supposed to be stylish and arty but it's just loads of RANDOM CRAP (the table scene with the zebras walking around?!) and "GET NASTY" was never going to be a THING no matter how many times they copied and pasted it into the song (Pharrell's chorus where she grinds against him at the bar saying it OVER AND OVER is about as VAPID as she's ever looked - and that includes during 'Gimme More' at the VMA's). Obviously it was always going to be seen as a 'Slave 4 U' knock-off but at least the album version has the lovely "Tonight, let's fly, boy have NO FEAR..." section. There are few singles I loathe more than this in her back-catalogue. Even 'I Love Rock N Roll' sort of WORKS in the context she's using it these days, straddled atop a gigantic electric guitar.
