Compilation Albums/Forgotten Singles


Recommended Posts

I have a random question about The Singles Collection track list. I find it odd that they chose Born to Make You Happy to be on the album, since it wasn't even released as a single in the US. Why not Sometimes?  Same goes for the songs chosen from the Britney album. In my understanding, Overprotected was a bigger hit than Boys

I also wonder why Lucky wasn't included? If it would have been, it would have made it a minimum of three songs from each album (except for Blackout, but I guess that's because Break the Ice was a halfa**ed single with no proper music video)

I also found it interesting how From the Bottom of my Broken Heart , Don't Let Me Be The Last to Know  and I Love Rock n' Roll are always forgotten about.

DLMBTLTK and ILRNR are included on the UK, Australia and Japan (ILRNR on the International version ) of Greatest Hits: My Prerogative. In a way I can see the reason for ILRNR not often being included because it is not an original Britney song, but she has performed it a lot tho. DLMBTLTK is also featured on B in the Mix: The Remixes, which kinda is a compilation album. 

Now, FTBOMBH is nowhere to be seen or heard from, why is that? It obviously wasn't a huge hit, but at least it was released as a single in the US, unlike BTMYH.

 

Sorry if this thread is a boring flop, I wanted to post something a little more lighthearted in the middle of all the #FreeBritney posts. :kiss_britney_blowing_pink_candies:

 

Spoiler

Also, can we talk about this cover. Why is there two pictures from the BOMT era (Second pic from BTMYH music video)? Also, is team B such a flop that they didn't notice that the picture chosen for the album Britney and In the Zone are in the wrong order.....?

Not the box set and without it we would’ve never gotten 3

Lol it's classic Britney songs but they weren't all hits. MP, Boys, Overprotected, Lucky, Not A Girl, DS were all considered flops. Some people consider MATM a flop as well. My point was that GH:

Britney's Greatest Hits and TSC always annoyed me bc really the names should have been switched. GH:MP was just a collection of her singles up until that time and TSC was her greatest hits at the time

So for TSC, it was really a highlights aka greatest hits or best of album. That's why songs like Lucky and DLMBTLTK are left off - if they were only going to put on two tracks from Oops, it was clearly going to be Oops and Stronger.

GH:MP contained nothing but hits.

The tracklisting was a bit random but every single was included in the boxset. I think for the album at least they were going with some of the bigger/more popular hits but I do agree that Overprotected was more of a hit than Boys was.

I think that might be why From the Bottom Of My Broken Heart, I Love Rock N Roll and Don't Let Me Be the Last To Know weren't included as they weren't really 'hits' compared to some of the other songs on the main tracklisting. Don't Let Me Be the Last To Know didn't even chart in the US. It's also work keeping in mind that From the Bottom Of My Broken Heart and I Love Rock N Roll were region-specific singles (From the Bottom Of My Broken Heart was released in most countries outside of Europe, I Love Rock N Roll was not released in the US and France (France got Anticipating as a single instead)).

My point was that GH:MP was more like ALL of her singles than a selective greatest hits album. That's what TSC was. So the names really should have switched. Britney was a little too young and new into her career to really have a Greatest Hits album in 2004.

TSC was really more of a "best of hits" album.

MaTm only flopped in the us, cos of Madonna's ban on radio for speaking out against The war on Iraq and her views on Bush and the GOP, however she wasn't cancelled like The Chicks were and I think it was because she's pop Music and does a liberal based genre of music..

Britney is a world star and not just a US singer. She has fans all over the world, a lot in Europe. So they have to please the taste of everyone. During her prime, she was even more successful overseas. Overprotected may be a huge hit in the UK and the US, but it was not a worldwide release. I think that's why they choose Boys instead. And Sometimes is the weakest single from the Baby album even when it is a fan favorite. But I agree, with Lucky, it is strange. Even the adults and the non-Britney fans loved the song when it would be released.

I think she shouldn't have made a compilation album in 2004, it was too early. (Unless B wanted to move on in her life and quit music for awhile and focus on marriage, and she tought she would  finish of with a GH)

Anyway, I like that they did one for her 10 year anniversary.

No, Overprotected was released worldwide, It has physical singles released in multiple countries, such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, South Africa, Israel, etc.

But not in Europe, expect for UK. Do some research .It was never a single in Germany for example.
