If You Seek Amy/cheesy pop songs/the soundtrack of spring break 09.... in my head

I wish... that I could be your romeo...
"marry me juliet, youll never have to be alone,
I love you and thats all I really know..."


but alas, I have spent way too much of my spring break listening to the radio...
which brings up the point of my newfound appreciation and mixed feelings about Britney Spears....



ok, so yea yea big deal, at this point most people know but I will reiterate,

"All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy"
'if you seek amy" - eff.u.see.kay.ME - f u c k ME
that line at first doesn't make sense but if you examine the sounds of 'if you seek amy' what comes out is the spelling of 'fuck' me. This would be part one of the appreciation, but part 2 of admiration and mixed feelings come out in the first half of that line...
if she is indeed saying (and I for one believe she is) fuck me at the end, then what does it mean that she says that both the boys and girls want to fuck her...

so points of interest as I continue to explore this song...

the meaning of all of the boys and all of the girls
the implications of the constant representation of seeking> 'amy', a clearly feminine name
the idealism of Britney eventually heading out side the suburban home with the pie 2.5 kids, husband, etc... as she retreats from the world of the wild partiers and into the psuedo rhelm of the american dream...
the role of the news clips placed on either side of the "actual video"...

and more...
there are answers coming I swear...

and btw- incase you forgot the josie and the pussycats existed, now seems like a good time to put some in...



ps- remember to count down...

6 whole hours,
5 long days,
4 all your lies to come undone, and those
3 small words came way
2 late, cuz you cant see that I'm the
1...



o, and i do know that this has been a little scattered, but its kind of like watching a little brain explosion...

hannah you're overthinking britney. I think the reason she mentions all the boys AND all the girls is because shes BRITNEY(!), ergo, everyone, irrespective of gender wants to fuck her...cause like, she's fucking BRITNEY! As for the suburbanite bit, i do recall seeing some press photos of her wearing a shirt that said Future MILF (when it was true), so that may just be her acknowledging that she is a mother and everyone STILL wants to seek amy and fuck her. Finally, as for the choice of the name AMY, that could be as simple as, oh i dont know, a phonetic device to make her little play on words make sense. Here lets imagine it with another name, shall we?

"All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Gertrude" --not quite so witty anymore, is it.

here let's try one with a boy's name since you questioned why a feminine name like amy...

"All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Henry" --hmmm...i dont know about that one; it just still doesnt have that promiscuous ring that 'amy' does.

ok, ok, one more, just for you!

"All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Helyx" we'll even do a breakdown of this one:

if you seek Helyx
eff.u.see.kay.hee.licks
FUCK! HE LICKS!

so you see, while Britney could have chosen to say 'if you seek helyx' it would somewhat change the nature of her song, and i personally do not think that revision would make it appropriate for the hearts and minds of the little cherubs who look up to her as well they should!
