Oh, Ms. Britney. Where would we be in our gay lives without her iconic dance moves, epic videos, and a catalogue of tunes that will last us through all of rainbow eternity? While yes, for some, these days Ms. Spears is viewed as a manufactured pop robot who does it all for daddy. For others, Philly Mixtape included, the diva will always be a pop force to be reckoned with who even in the worst of troubling ’07 times, pulls through like the fierce bitch that she is. With or without those pop puppet strings propping her up, for almost two decades, Britney and her team have cooked up a vault of grooves that certainly put the “haaaay” in gay.
For most die hard Godney fans, we live and breathe each one of her rousing records. (Except you, Britney Jean, you can have a row of seats.) We know every lyric by heart, every move, every “get it, get it,” and most of all, there’s loads of music love for Team Britney. Each album in her elusive career contains pop gems that are like no other, that are prim, polished, auto-finished and packed with plenty of gasoline to set our music hearts on fire. However, since there are so many songs to be cherished in Britney’s music memoirs, we would be here all disco day sorting them out. So, today, Philly Mixtape wanted to serve up some of those slices of music life that are ones that you might not give the full Britney music treatment to on a daily basis.
Now, get to werk…bitch.
“Born To Make You Happy”
It was either this one or “E-mail My Heart.”
“Don’t Go Knockin On My Door”/”What You See”(Is What You Get)”
An Oops 2-for-1 of early ’00s Britney bangers. What could be better?
A stand out from ’01’s Britney. Play on repeat all the time…that is, if you’re not already.
“What It’s Like To Be Me”
Britney and Justin. Sigh…. That matching denim outfit…double sigh….
A slinky, sexy In the Zone groove written by ’90s dance queen, Cathy Dennis. Bedroom perfection.
“Don’t Hang Up”
When it comes to this Britney groove, we’ll always call back.
Part “Pretty Girls,” part Britney/KFed era equals all parts fabulous…
Still trying to figure out why this sexy Eurythmics sampling number didn’t get a proper single release…oh, yes…it came out in ’07….
“Tell Me What Your Sippin’ On”
Pass the umbrella laced Britney music cocktail, please…
“Outta This World”
It’s Britney and Ms Keri, baby…all over this breezy track.
A 2-for-1 ‘Circus‘ special of two sleek “not crazy anymore” Britney jams….
This one will always take us back to the end of the infamous MTV Britney doc, For the Record…
Britney at her dance-pop best.
The only song Britney co-wrote for the Femme Fatale era. Delicious.
“Tik Tik Boom”
Corny? Yes. But, it’s still a lot of fun and demands at least one more listen…even if it is from Britney Jean.
