ELDERS READ BRITNEY SPEARS’ HIT SONGS (React)


– ♪ All the boys and all the girls
they’re begging to if you seek Amy ♪ – Oh, that’s the one. – “Don’t you know that
you’re toxic?” Oh, we’ve all been there. ♪ (rock intro) ♪ – (FBE) So today, we’re gonna have
you read some top songs all by one artist and tell us
the meaning and what you think
and after, you get to listen to the songs you read,
but this artist in particular has had a lot of hit songs,
so it was impossible to fit all of them in, but we
tried our best. – Oh, great.
I love this stuff. It makes you really think.
Bring out my critical thinking. – Oh good, then I hope
it’s someone I’m familiar with, ’cause many times,
I don’t have a clue. – After you read the lyrics,
you make some opinion, but then when you hear them,
everything changes and sometimes it’s like,
wow, made those things work. – “My loneliness is killing me.
And I, I must confess I still believe.
When I’m not with you, I lose my mind.
Give me a sign. Hit me baby one more time.” – This is Britney Spears.
She’s really hooked to this guy and she really
wants to be with him. – It’s not hard for me
to understand the emotion going on here.
I like it. – Oh boy, felt that way
a few times, too. – Give me a sign,
something that can give me hope and “hit me baby one more time.”
I hope it’s not about an abusive thing. – “You see, my problem is this.
I’m dreaming away. Wishing that heroes,
they truly exist. I cry watching the days.” – “Can’t you see I’m a fool
in so many ways?” But to lose all my senses,
that is just so typically me.” She has some issues. – Those lyrics make a lot
of sense to me. She’s doing a little bit
of self examination and still reaching out
at the same time. – This girl is really affected
by that guy. Love really makes you wanna
pour out to that other person and hope that you get
something in return. – I think it says a lot.
I mean, we’re all holding out that heroes truly exist
and we try to put that moniker on people
that may or may not deserve it. – “I know I may come off quiet.
I may come off shy. But I feel like talking,
feel like dancing when I see this guy.” – “What’s practical is logical,
what the hell, who cares? All I know is I’m so happy
when you’re dancing there. I’m a slave for you.”
This girl is smitten. – She’s hot for him.
She likes him. – There’s no logic.
She’s just gonna go for this guy and she doesn’t really care. – I feel like expressing myself.
That’s what this guy does to her. – Hm, that’s really deep,
to really be a slave for someone, you really have to really
be into them a lot. – “With a taste of your lips,
I’m on a ride. You’re toxic,
I’m slipping under. With a taste of a poison paradise.” – “I’m addicted to you.
Don’t you know that you’re toxic?” Oh, we’ve all been there. – I like it.
A real confession of love, infatuation,
interest. – Taste of your lips, you’re toxic.
Again, like a drug. I’m slipping under.
The drug is affecting me and I’m becoming under your spell. – Toxic is not a good thing,
so maybe she’s not happy that she’s addicted to him
like that. – I don’t think it’s a good
representation for girls in her demographic that listen
to the song that it’s actually a good idea to do whatever
it takes to get a guy. – “I’m Miss Bad Media Karma.
Another day, another drama. Guess I can’t see the harm
in working and being a mama.” – “And with a kid on my arm,
I’m still an exceptional earner. You want a piece of me?” – I agree with her here.
Why can’t she work and be a mama?
And she still outperforms most other performers. – Her balancing when she
became a mom, that there’s no harm
in balancing it like many women do. – I had five brothers
and a single mom and I wondered how
she did it all. This girl is not afraid
of saying “Hey look it, I’m a mama and that’s
something to be proud of.” – “Love me, hate me,
say what you want about me, but all of the boys
and all of the girls are begging to if
you seek Amy.” – Begging to see if you
seek Amy. CK.
Got a little code in there, but I’m not getting it. – I don’t know who Amy is,
so I don’t know– is this like what’s her face
and the Beyonce? Becky with the hair. – Yeah, I’ve been to a few–
Oh. – If you flaunt it,
if you got it, you can say what you want,
but everybody wants to do me. – “Cause you’re the flame
I can’t do without. The fire comes in,
the sky falls down. There’s no way I’m gonna
be fighting this tonight.” – “I just want you to make me move.
Like it ain’t a choice for you. Like you’ve got a job to do.”
Ooh, I like that. “Just want you to raise
my roof. Something sensational.” – She just wants to get laid. – The young lady is saying
in her way, make love to me. – “Cause you’re the flame
I can’t do without.” Okay, you’re the person
that lights my fire. – She just wants it
to be really great, really exciting.
She wants to really feel good about it and
like she’s saying, something sensational. – (FBE) So, do you have any idea
whose lyrics you’ve been reading? – I do not. – Lady Gaga. – Yeah, it’s Britney. – Britney Spears. – (FBE) These were lyrics
to songs from Britney Spears’ repertoire.
– Britney Spears? My God. – Get out of here.
That cute little Britney Spears? – (FBE) Britney Spears is
a pop icon and has garnished titles such as the Princess of Pop.
As a teen, she became the best selling teenage artist
of all time. – Wow. – That’s excellent.
She worked hard. She started off in the
little Mickey Mouse Club. – (FBE) Let’s play you the songs
you read. – All righty. – Okay Britney, let’s rock it. – ♪ My loneliness is killing me
I must confess ♪ – (singing along) ♪ I still
believe ♪ – ♪ When I’m not with you
I lose my mind ♪ – I mean, you can’t sit still
with her music. It’s just great. – ♪ Hit me baby one more time ♪
– Yeah, very– perfectly commercial. – You can dance around
your kitchen in it. Even if you weren’t listening
to the lyrics, it’s just a fun song. – ♪ You see my problem is this
I’m dreaming away ♪ ♪ Wishing that heroes ♪
– That’s another hit song. – ♪ I cry, watching the days
Can’t you see I’m a fool in so many ways? ♪ – I would like to hear her sing
live in a capella. – ♪ That is just so typically me
Oh baby, oh ♪ – That’s great. – I liked the other one
a little bit better. Yeah, the tune and everything,
but they’re still good. – ♪ I know I may
come off quiet ♪ ♪ I may come off shy
But I feel like talking ♪ ♪ Feel like dancing
when I see this guy ♪ ♪ What’s practical is logical ♪
– I like the beat of this one. – ♪ All I know is I’m so happy
when you’re dancing there ♪ ♪ I’m a slave for you ♪
– Little bit on the erotic side. – I love the rhythm. – You hear that beat
and you just wanna start dancing, right? – ♪ Oh the taste of your lips
I’m on a ride ♪ ♪ You’re toxic
I’m slipping under ♪ – Yeah, I like this one.
I’m trying to think of the outfit she was wearing
with this one. – ♪ You’re toxic? ♪
– I don’t like that. This is different, but it’s
just I’d be turning it off. – Kinda all the same.
It’s all catchy. – If you watched her
singing this, and you shot to the audience,
they’d all be mouthing it. – ♪ I’m Miss bad media karma
Another day another drama ♪ ♪ Guess I can’t see no harm
in working ♪ – Yeah, this is the fighting one. – ♪ And with a kid on my arm ♪
– She uses so many effects on her voice. – ♪ And you want a piece of me ♪ – (singing) ♪ You want a piece
of me? ♪ – Not particularly my style. – Pretty much the same.
Yeah, interesting to hear it all once like that. – ♪ Love me, hate me
Say what you want about me ♪ ♪ But all the boys
and all the girls ♪ ♪ They’re begging to
if you seek Amy ♪ – Oh, that’s the one
with the hidden word. – ♪ What I see?
All the boys and all the girls ♪ ♪ Are begging to
if you seek Amy ♪ – Weird, that was weird.
If you’re gonna say it, just effing say it. – Yeah, that’s not my favorite.
It’s just ♪ Da, da, da, da, ♪
Follow the bouncing ball. – ♪ ‘Cause you’re the flame
I can’t do without ♪ ♪ The fire comes in
the sapphire sun ♪ ♪ There’s no way I’m gonna
be fighting this tonight ♪ ♪ Just want you to make
me move ♪ ♪ Like it ain’t a choice for you
Like you got a job to do ♪ ♪ Just want you to
raise my roof ♪ ♪ Something sensational ♪
– See, her voice actually sounds good here,
but is it digitally corrected? – I’m glad my I got a chance
to see this side of her, because I just thought
of her as the trashy little pop princess
with the high voice that couldn’t get her life together.
This shows a different side to her and shows
her intelligence. – Did they call her
the Queen of Pop, because she just pops.
She just pops. She’s got–
I know she’s had some struggles during her growing up period,
some nasty ones and she got through them,
but she’s still got a big heart and hopefully
a long life to live and a lot more talent
to be spread about the world. – Thanks for watching us

  2. Well the kids and even the older generation knew some of Britney's songs. She is very well known for every generation

  3. Please watch the acoustic cover of Toxic by Britney Spears on my channel it would really mean a lot to me. Thank you so much.

  4. I like how that one lady said "If you’re gonna say it just f-ing say it” but she didn’t even say the word herself. 😂

  5. Please do a lyric breakdown for Bring Me the Horizon! I'd love to see how they'd react to songs like Sleepwalking and Join the Club.

  6. I would really love to see a lyric breakdown video of the elders reacting to 5 Seconds Of Summer’s songs. Now that would be the best thing ever.

  7. REACT please do elders react to P!nk. If anyone agrees that P!nk should be next like my comment and comment as well. Let’s get the Queen up there!!!

  8. U have to do Britney Spears songs that r more than just erotic which have other legitimate feelings to them

  9. Can’t believe u called it greatest hits without these few songs:
    From the Bottom of My Broken Heart
    Sometimes
    I Wanna Go
    Womanizer
