Top Ten Songs by Britney Spears

Yes, she pretty much took a huge downfall when she started to date Kevin Federline, but I am such a big Britney Spears fan, that I am willing to look past all of that. I am hoping that my nostalgic list of Top Ten Britney Spears songs will somehow bring the old Britney back. But even if it doesn’t, I still have some DVDs and CDs that will bring her back to me temporarily.

Let’s start with my choice for the #10 Britney Spears song, “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman.” This song came out in conjunction with Britney’s 2002 movie, “Crossroads.” It is a bit different from the other sexual-charged Britney songs which is why I like it. The song allows the fans to bond with Britney as most of them are also making the transition from girl to woman.

Number nine on my list is “Overprotected,” also a song from “Crossroads.” I’ve always thought that “Overprotected” and “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman” have always gone together. In this song, Britney complains about everyone telling her what to do. She’s breaking away from her parents and other influences in her young life.

The next song on my list is “Lucky.” I like this song because it is a cheesy song about a famous girl. (Autobiographical, anyone?) Since most of her fans can’t relate to this song, it never really got up there or stayed on the charts as the other Britney songs did. I still can’t help listening to it sometimes and singing along like a cheeseball, though. If you ever need a pick me up and feel like singing a cheesy song, or like karaoke, try that song.

My number seven song is “(You Drive Me) Crazy,” a catchy song about being obsessed with a guy. This song was also the title for a 1999 movie featuring Melissa Joan Hart. I love the song by itself, but I think the video, which takes place in a diner and features some hot choreography, is why I really love this song.

The number six and five Britney songs that I chose came from two different albums, but I like them for the same reason. They both are powerful songs that focus on Britney’s inner feelings rather than her feelings towards a guy. “Stronger” is my choice for the #6 spot. It’s a post-breakup song where Britney promises that she will get over the guy and become a stronger woman despite of her heartache. The number five song that I chose was “Everytime.” This is also a post-breakup song, but this time, Britney cannot get over the guy. Critics say this song was an ode to Justin Timberlake. I have to admit, it makes the song a little juicier, but either way, I like it.

My number four pick is “My Prerogative.” Britney re-did Bobby Brown’s song, but put her own twist on the beat. I feel as though Britney really broke away from the teenybopper girl vibe from this song and turned into a bad-ass chick who told everyone what she was going to do with her life.

“I’m a Slave 4 U” was the first single from Britney’s third album which was released in 2001. We all thought Britney was already the pop princess, but this song made sure that she stayed there despite other competition. This song makes your hip gyrate and makes you want to have a huge, yellow snake around your neck, just so you can feel as sexy as Britney looked when she performed this song. I think it is Britney’s sexiest song, which is why I ranked it at number three.

Britney’s first single, “âÂ?¦Baby One More Time” is my number two all time song. Seven years after it was released, I still love this song. Although I’m still not exactly sure what it is about, and kind of disgusted at the fact that Britney’s crush in the video is really her cousin, I still love it.

Although Britney quickly shot to “pop princess” status after her debut CD, “Baby One More Time” was released in January of 1999, she really blew up after her sophomore release, “OopsâÂ?¦ I Did It Again” in 2000. The title track for this CD wins my vote for the #1 Britney Spears song of all time. “OopsâÂ?¦ I Did It Again” embodies everything Britney Spears. The sexy teasing: “Oops, I did it again, I made you believe we’re more than just friends,” allowed women to take charge of relationships and stand in men’s shoes for once. Girls could call the shots and pick and choose what they wanted from a relationship without being labeled a slut. Although the cheesy “Titanic” voice-over in the song makes me cringe, the rest of the song is so sexy and empowering, I have to overlook that and make “OopsâÂ?¦ I Did It Again” the best Britney Spears song of all time.
