I didn't really "get" Britney until I started doing cardio dance workouts (aka JAZZERCISE).
A whole new world of workout jams opened up to me. I saw the light!

There is no shame in loving Britney's stuff. I have all of her albums (admittedly I bought most of them for $1 or $2 at Half Price Books). The first 3 albums and 2011's Femme Fatale", are all sheer genius. The other early albums were pretty good too.

Her live shows are pure guilty pleasures. Her Vegas show was outstanding (in my book).

Sadly, her last two albums, "Britney Jean" and "Glory", sucked big time.

Not defending it, but that was instituted after 9/11 when there was this huge swell of national pride. Everyone was really with it at the time (seemingly). Problem is that if you try to take it away it looks like you hate your country.

Actually, it started in WWII.

Oh, i was looking at your original post hating on the national anthem.
Correction, WWI

Thanks! I was referencing the "America the Beautiful" element of the 7th inning stretch, but this is nice too.

I was looking at your first post hating on the national anthem.

I want everyone to list the objectively worst song in their streaming or personal catalog that they enjoy:

I think I have mentioned I am a sucker for dance/bass songs.

So HARLEM SHAKE just came on in the shuffle.  Probably that or MACARENA.  C-Fan groans every time MACARENA comes on, then stares at me in disbelief.  To be fair, it's not like it's often.

What I'm saying is, make me feel better.

Pitbulll "Fireball."

Agreed! That first Ace of Base is a guilty pleasure right up there with Britney!

The 1910 Cotton Candy Castle by the bubblegum group 1910 Fruitgum Company.  It's even worse than their radio hits.  A guilty pleasure if there ever was one.

Don't feed trolls by responding to or acknowledging them.

There’s no shame in liking Britney Spears songs.  She’s actually not a bad singer, though her range is kind of low and she maybe doesn’t have the purest voice. She made it work for her in her heyday, though.

Max Martin is kind of a genius.  Dude has what, like 30 #1 songs or something?  He actually uses some rather unusual and sophisticated chord progressions for pop.  Especially for his early Britney stuff.  Probably because Spears had no pretensions as a songwriter or a desire for a particular sound and was more into the dancing so Martin had freer rein.  I think both Baby One More Time and Crazy are both in minor keys, which you might not expect.

There’s certain things he does which are a little formulaic, but 1. It’s pop dance music.  You have to keep it simple 2.  People often pay him crazy money to write a song just like another one, so he does, 3.  You try writing like 500 songs and have them all be different. 

Admittedly a lot of his later work tends toward the same old I-V-vi-IV everyone else uses.  They’re still catchy, but not as interesting. 

But anyway, yeah.  Critics jizz all over Robyn but Body Talk is Max Martin, too.
