After the instant and huge success of her debut single Baby One More Time, Britney Spears returned in June 1999 with her second single called Sometimes. The second song to be taken from her debut album Baby One More Time, Sometimes peaked at No.3 in the UK charts and was a massive No.1 all over Europe. For me this is the song that always reminds me of summer 1999 - the years of my hormonal changes when I believed I was actually in love with the girl! The way Britney handles the song is just perfect and the beats and lyrics are so relaxing and sleepy.
Sometimes begins with a brilliant tingly bassline, before going rather low and quiet as Britney sings the verses. It goes up again as Britney sings the classic chorus; everyone knows those lyrics, "Sometimes I run/sometimes I hide/sometimes I'm scared of you....but all I really want is to hold you tight/treat you right/baby, all I need is time." Britney has always been a rather controversial artist - the Baby One More Time caused a lot. The video to Sometimes, however, created more speculation than controversy... Anyway, the video was a worthy successor to Baby One More Time and the song in itself was equal to that statement. If you're looking for the most relaxing Britney Spears song, go for Sometimes...or Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know. Regardless of which one you choose, make sure to buy Sometimes from Amazon now!
