Britney Spears’s new single "Hold It Against Me" is shattering sales records and stuff, but is it her best song ever?
Most fans say it’s good but not her best, leaving a natural inquiry to follow: what are her very best -- her ultimate -- songs?
She’s come a long way from "Hit Me Baby One More Time." As she’s matured, our little Brit has teamed up with super producers and transformed from a tween princess to a full-grown dancehall diva.
Though she has many greats, here are 5 that are undeniably among her most beloved:
“It’s Britney, bitch.” Best. Opening. Line. Ever.
Pure Brit! By far a fan fave. Definitely one of her defining songs lyrically, vocally, and musically.
This song is basically “I’m so over you, you’re a speck on my rear view mirror,” and it rocks.
If I had to pick just one favorite, Circus sums up the Britney experience -- a fun dance track with a great hook!
As this is my final column here at YH, why do all the work myself? To honor the true spirit of the typical American work ethic, I’ve already mentally checked out! My Twitter friends and followers are helping me wrap this up as I asked them to “hit me” with their fave Britney song. What’s yours? Tell me @Westopher and let’s keep the conversation going...
