Sometimes was really an embarrassing song for a newly come out gay uni student such as me, but time has been very kind to it and hearing it nowadays it sounds as beautiful and classic as the best of Mozart, Chopin et al.
Oops is fabulous. I don’t listen to it much, and prefer some others from the era, but fuck me it’s iconic. As soon as the spoken word bit finishes (which itself is ) and she crashes back in with Oops I! (Bang) Did it again to your HEEE-AAART is just magical.
Everytime is lovely, and was quite a moment. In amongst all the awful music that 2004 bestowed on us, the Britney Toxic-Everytime comeback was quite wonderful. Obviously, everything fell apart rather spectacularly afterwards, but those two singles were so important in terms of solidifying her legacy.
I like my Britney SLUTTY, BANGING and BOPPIN's sorry to be basic y'all. Sure Everytime was what she needed at that moment and did wonders for her but, better than Gimme More, Toxic, TTWE, Crazy or Baby? INSULTING!
