18 years ago (12th January 1999), Britney dropped her first studio album, 'Baby One More Time' and from then on, pop has never been the same again, with the birth of an icon and living legend!

What are your memories of the album? Do you still listen to it? What tracks are your faves and least faves etc?

HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY 'BABY ONE MORE TIME'!!! <3 <3 <3

My faves (along with the singles ofc) are:

'I Will Be There': (i.e. the single that never was!!!!)

Argh, 18 years... sob.gif

You've picked my two favourite album tracks Jonjo!

I have a very specific memory of getting this album (a very boring one lol, but I'll describe it anyway). I remember being in Tesco with mum, and she asked me if I'd like a video or a CD. Initially I chose this Simpsons video, but based on the title & the parental guidance warning, she felt it wouldn't be suitable for me (I'd just turned 11, I'm sure it would have been fine, mother xox). She did the right thing by saying no anyway, because my next choice was Britney's album which she happily bought for me. *.* (I have a feeling I got it in the first week of its release, which was 8th-14th March '99 in the UK!).

I had been obsessed with '...Baby One More Time' the song for a while (obvs), but the only two other tracks to initially grab my attention were '(You Drive Me) Crazy' & 'Deep In My Heart'. Otherwise I remember feeling pretty let down by the album at first. However I stuck with it, and it really grew on me with further listens - and my love for Britney was solidified. wub.gif I played the album so many times throughout '99; it takes me back to the transition between primary & secondary school.

When it comes to the singles: '...Broken Heart' was definitely the worst choice (not that I even knew it was a single back then, given it wasn't released in the UK, but still... bad choice, Brit ;o). The other 4 singles were the perfect 4, but if she'd stretched to a 5th I'd have liked 'I Will Be There' to have its moment.

My love for 'Crazy' multiplied by about 100 when 'The Stop Remix' came out. heart.gif It's probably the single from this album that I've listened to the most over the years... definitely a close run thing with 'Born To Make You Happy' (which is one of my favourite ever ballads). I still get life from '...Baby' every time I play it, but for some reason I tend to revisit it less than the other two. 'Sometimes' is a lovely listen every now and then.

Overall: Fond memories of this era and the album makes for a cute listen overall, but I don't return to it too often, and she has certainly topped it multiple times in her career. cool2.gif

We should never forget that Britney was the pioneer of a relatively new form of communication. *.*
