Off The Record – Magic Of The Music Video Special – …Baby One More Time, Britney Spears

This year, we launched a brand new set of articles called The Magic of The Music Video which looks at videos that have inspired me as a Video Editor. Well, I thought I would bring that article to life in more ways then one by celebrating certain albums that some of those singles have come off of. Why do this you ask? Well, you may know the songs but may of never actually listened to the albums so welcome to this section of this feature that will happen throughout the year.  In April we featured Britney Spears  so today we are looking at today was the home of Born To Make You Happy…Baby One More Time, Britney Spears 

Soda Pop feat Mikey Bassie

This song has that classic late nineties feel about it with a hint of the reggae undertones mixed into it to make it a good up beat and up tempo album track. It has a catchy pop chorus and a fun set of verses. Britney does so many different sounds with her voice that you wonder at times if it is another person dueting with her and I had to double check. It is a fun track.

 I Will Be There

This song again oozes with nineties feel and really highlights why Britney was so popular when she first started her career – catchy choruses that you can make a dance routine to, a good set of verses and again an up beat tempo. This song highlights a theme and a style that was really popular back in the late nineties and it hits all the right music pop chords.

Email My Heart 

You want a song that highlights the nineties and the good girl Britney then this is the song you have to listen to. Email was a hugeee thing to sing about in the late nineties and the lyrics in this song are all metaphors about the new technology and it is funny to listen to now but also highlights what life as like at the beginning of the noughties.
