She should call up Fernando Garibay again. Amnesia and Quicksand are two of the best on Circus.

Quicksand was left out yet Mmm Papi is on the standard :zoomzoom:

really? i thought it was a pop rock song. The instrumental is pretty noisy.

Yeah I would consider it pop rock leaning more towards pop but not rock imo

I became OCD about using official tracklists in iTunes but this would be an ideal one imo:

Standard

01 Womanzier

02 Circus

03 Kill the Lights

04 Out from Under

05 Shattered Glass

06 If U Seek Amy

07 Unusual You

08 Blur

09 Amnesia

10 Mannequin

11 Lace and Leather

12 Quicksand

 

Bonus

13 Trouble

14 Rock Me In

15 Phonography

 

This flows a lot better. And I guess if you wanted to, you can include Rock Boy but it's kinda trash imo. :gross: I would prefer Dangerous instead.

trouble & phonography deserve a place on the standard imo, i don't really care for shattered glass, lace & leather or out from under

I like those songs because they tie in with the overall more mellow theme of the album. Comparing to Madonna, I like to think of Blackout as Britney's Erotica and Circus her Bedtime Stories. BS was an album that was a bit safer and more mellow to get Madonna back into the public's good graces and they share a few similarities imo. 

They both have a critic lashing song (Kill the Lights, Human Nature)

an experimental track from them at #10 (Mannequin, Bedtime Story)

and overall a more toned down sound, I wouldn't put a lot of bangers when Womanizer, Circus and Amy are already there. I think it makes the album more cohesive, nothing wrong with some killer bonus tracks either. :verycool:

It's one of the best songs on Circus, and I would swap out almost any non-single on Circus for it (maybe not Shattered Glass). It's got a killer, classic-pop melody and is rhythmically more interesting than most pop songs, and her voice is great for the song -- very light and airy -- imagine Gaga or Katy or Beyonce trying to sing it. It's a song that has to be handled kind of delicately. It also does a couple of interesting things with the song structure: the first verse is kind of a 'fakeout,' because there's only three lines before the chorus kicks in. Then the second verse is also the bridge, and the later choruses have extended endings. So the song kind of builds and builds as it goes on. Amnesia is definitely in my Top 20 Britney songs.
