Billboard's 50 Best Deep Cuts of 2001: Anticipating #5


Recommended Posts

5. Britney Spears, "Anticipating" (Britney)

 

 

 

While the bump and grind raunch of "I'm a Slave 4 U" and "Boys" were the pillars of Spears' 2001 LP Britney, betwixt the heavy breathing club hits she leaned into lighter disco-pop with the effervescent (and Rick Astley-reminiscent) "Anticipating." Britney explored themes of sexual maturity, and was more overt about coming of age on the album's "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman" ballad -- but with lascivious lyrics ("my body's taking over and I want some more") couched in strings as light as cherry-flavored lip gloss, "Anticipating" actually embodied the sense of being old and young, inexperienced and a slave 4 u, all at the same time. -- K.B.

 

Other interesting rankings:

 

40. Janet Jackson, "When We Oooo" (All For You)

29. Shakira, "Rules" (Laundry Service)

28. Eve feat. Da Brat & Trina, "Gangsta Bitches" (Scorpion)

22. P!nk, "M!ssundaztood" (M!ssundaztood)

21. Björk, "Undo" (Vespertine)

19. Destiny's Child, "Dangerously in Love" (Survivor)

15. Mary J. Blige, "PMS" (No More Drama)

11. Alicia Keys, "Butterflyz" (Songs in A Minor)

8. No Doubt, "Don't Let Me Down" (Rock Steady)

7. Missy Elliott feat. Redman & Method Man, "Dog in Heat" (Miss E... So Addictive)

1. Jay-Z, "Never Change" (The Blueprint)

They put some really random tracks on these lists. :toofunny2: Even if we speak not about MPGs, there are, like, the worst or the most unlikable tracks out artist's records here.

I can’t believe out of all the songs from All For You they picked When We Ooo though... Trust A Try and Would You Mind were right there and deserved to be top 5

Britney always loved the song. I still hope we get more leaks from the original concept of album :'(, can't believe they turned into that Crossroads soundtrack mess.

Same.  I want “Bring Me Home” and “Baby Can’t You See” to leak so bad.  

 

OT:  Out of all her albums, I’ve been returning to Britney more & more lately.

You need to check your taste levels sis, Rules is a highlight from LS! (Fool and RFTGT are better tho)

Undo from Vespertine? Bitch where is Its not up to you? Harm of will? Heirloom? Aurora?

Also, Survivor has way better deep cuts, same for All for you.

Let alone, Anticipating... it's a cute song but Cinderella, Bombastic Love, Lonely... 

This list is weird.

Not Rules :deadbanana4:  I mean, the song is good but you also have Ready for the Good Times on the album...

 

Also, Fool is low key problematic so no
