Day 5 of My Week with Britney Spears and today its the classic Oops I Did It Again. Released back in 2000, this was a huge single for the very young then Brit.
Oops I Did it Again was taken from her second studio album, also called Oops I Did it Again, also released the same year. This is a much more teen pop number, than her later stuff, but its a reminder of just how innocent she was when she began.
The video is quite amazing. I say this, because for a girl that was rocketed to fame after her debut album, she had cultured herself as the girl next door. In this video, she's clad head to foot in a red pvc body suit and despite facially looking clean and fresh, this is pure sex appeal. Dancing around, looking amazing, there is no denying the appeal she had / has.
I think the point of the video is that she is toying with an astronaut who is in love with her. Its set in space, hence the astronaut bit. Its not exactly deep and meaningful this one, but its fun to watch.
Vocally, she still sounds sweet and innocent. She has a very distinctive nasally singing voice, she's not the strongest vocalist, but for a pop artist, she has the full package. Its a cute little number this one, and one you find yourself singing along to. Its quite telling that even then she sings "i'm not that innocent". Yes Britney, we know!!
I love this and clearly it was a big hit reaching the number one spot in the UK charts, not to mention lots of other places. Oop I Did it Again is now classic Britney and a stand out track. Go take a listen, and let me know what you think.
