It works though.I just read about the songwriter of this song, seeing as he's the same songwriter who wrote the "I Want it That Way" with BSB. Max Martin is Swedish so the way he covered lyrics in English has a missing component of sense like an incomplete thought.
He thought "Hit" meant to call someone, which it does when it's said as "Hit me up" or "Hit me later", but he took it as the word alone conveying that and came up with Hit Me Baby One More Time.
Same deal with BSB's song. I always thought it didn't make sense, saw the video, and confirmed my suspicions of foreigner writing it, but I didn't know it was the same guy lol
I was more amazed at how music can NOT make sense, a lot of people know it doesn't, yet still be so popular. Like success is really in the effort.
But I like a couple of artist that don't speak English entirely correct and their songs knock! It's amazing to me. Some things just don't have to make sense.
In terms of early Britney, her corniest from her first album was “Sometimes”Cant picture it being a tlc song. It's not a corny song in general but i think it would have been kind of corny coming from them

I like “Lucky” but if Britney Spears didn’t sing that song, it would had been corny. She gave it a hidden layer of meaning that the lyrics don’t have...
I like that song but it was corny too... same with bottom of my broken heart.Also Born To Make You Happy which sounds to me like “I was boring to make you happy”
I think I read it was supposed to be for TLC.
I wonder what it would had originally sounded like if it went to them?
It’s hard to imagine cause I couldn’t find anything remotely similar to TLC on YouTubeWell the way Britney Spears "sang" it was kind of deep like T-Boz. Add more bass/drum machine; take out the bass guitar and that fake piano. Have Left Eye write a verse.
Play with it like Silly Ho for that Fan Mail sound.
"No Scrubs" is a corny song when you think about it, but TLC (Chilli) killed it.
Rainy Dayz was for TLC too but that's more obvious.
This was the original What's Love Got to Do With It:
Then Tina got it, and they changed up subtle things about the background music and brought Tina's charisma and she slayed it.

I agree... the whole song needs to be change to work.The question is Max Martin producing or Dallas Austin?
Dallas Austin would have completely changed it up. The biggest problem with the song is those lyrics; they are simple and repetitive. But again, so is No Scrubs. They probably would have changed the title and chorus. Sexed it up. And put Left Eye on there.
