  1. The erasure of Xtina’s discography on this thread I’d say: Britney - Oops Destiny’s Child - The Writing’s on the Wall Amy Winehouse - Back to Black Lorde - Melodrama Fiona Apple - When the Pawn... Pet Shop Boys - Actually The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow Tears for Fears - Songs from the Big Chair Jellyfish - Spilt Milk The Supremes - Where Did Our Love Go Adele - 21 Madonna - Like a Virgin
  2. Baby One More Time was revolutionary. Christina had several solid pop songs on her debut, but Baby One More Time is a better album, even with the Come On Over and What a Girl Wants re-recordings. Christina certainly has a once-in-a-lifetime voice, but that's only one part of a musician's artistry. Christina's first singles, image, and early career were all shaped by Britney's success (sometimes unfairly). Christina's music was also much more "of the time" - R&B tinged with lots of melisma. Baby One More Time sounded like nothing on the radio. Both were great in their own right, but time has proven Baby One More Time to be the more lasting album and Britney the more influential artist. I think history will remember the 2000 Best New Artist Grammy as a miss. Just my two cents
  3. There was a Breatheheavy post recently asking for long term Britney fans to share with some of the newer fans what it was like to stan Britney at her prime. One thing I think that’s important to acknowledge is that as unbelievably incredible it was to watch her make history with legendary performances and groundbreaking albums, a lot of times it could be a bit lonely or isolating. It seemed like the world was against her and you were the only one cheering for her or defending her. It’s so incredibly refreshing to see the public sentiment shift and for her to finally receive the credit, acclaim, empathy, support, and recognition she has always deserved.
  4. A mix of early Britney, 00s Britney, and new Britney. For the last two, I think she could do some impressive falsettos. I also always wanted her to delve into dream-pop/bedroom pop.
  5. And of course the Crazy Stop Remix and the Till the World Ends Femme Fatale Mix, but those are a given at this point. The Criminal Radio edit was an improvement, but I don’t know if that’s enough of a change to qualify. Other contenders are the Sometimes Soul Solution Mid-Tempo Mix, the Stronger Jack D. Elliot Mix, and the Me Against the Music Chix Mix. Also, the Overprotected Darkchild Remix is a tossup with the original depending on my mood. I think I do like the original better, but the choreo for the remix is SO much better that she kinda sold me on it.
  6. I love reading everyone's favorite genres! It's really interesting to see the diversity and where everyone intersects I'm really all over the place. We grew up listening to oldies (50s-60s) and the only reason I discovered Britney was when they got rid of our oldies station when I was little. In my head, I separate my music out in decades: Pre '50s: Jazz standards, big band greats, Hollywood classics, Great American Songbook (e.g. Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Miller, Judy Garland, Gershwin) 50s: Early rock, doo-wop, rockabilly (e.g. Elvis, the Platters, the Everly Brothers) 60s: Girl groups, folk rock, Motown/R&B, psychedelic rock/pop, sunshine pop, chamber pop (e.g. the Ronettes, the Byrds, the Four-Tops, Jefferson Airplane, the Mamas & the Papas, the Beach Boys) 70s: New wave, classic rock, power pop, Singer/songwriter, R&B/soul, disco (e.g. Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, the Raspberries, Carole King, Ann Peebles, Donna Summer) 80s: Synth-pop, new wave, the Minneapolis Sound, dance-pop, pop ballads (e.g. Depeche Mode, Slow Children, Prince, Madonna, Air Supply) 90s: Bubblegum pop, new jack swing, pop rock, alt rock (e.g. Backstreet Boys, TLC, Natalie Imbruglia, REM) 00s: Teen pop, electrodance, hip hop, indie pop, indie electronica (e.g. Britney (Oops), Britney (Blackout) Missy Elliott, the Shins, Postal Service) 10s: Dance-pop, dream pop, indie rock, art rock, hip hop (e.g. Rihanna, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, St. Vincent, Kendrick Lamar) Any other huge Broadway nerds out there? At least 30% of my music library is showtunes/soundtracks from the 40s through today.
  7. Sorry! I didn't mean to shade! I should give them more of a listen! I know a handful of songs because my boyfriend is a fan. I don't know why there seems to be such a wall between British girl groups and American markets. I'm not even sure why the Spice Girls were able to break through where others weren't. But there does feel like there is something distinctly British about them. Like there are certain Sugababes songs that I love but also understand why they never made an impact on American radio in spite of them being great.
  8. We Americans be like... "Who?" Of those three I only know "Wannabe," but it turns out that "Never Ever" was indeed a top 10 hit in the US. I guess I was too young I just listened to "Sweet Melody" and it's cute. It's hard to compete with the global impact of "Wannabe" tho.
  9. Favorite song is “What It’s Like to Be Me.” “Lovestoned” is pretty good, too.
  10. Yes. I don't know when, but I can tell you this much: We will not be ready
  11. Write-ney is greatly under appreciated! My absolute favorites: Everytime Freakshow Mannequin Cinderella Touch of My Hand Lonely Better Don’t Cry Let’s also not forget that she wrote songs for other artists! And she played the piano on “Someday (I Will Understand)!” A true artist!
