    Angry bring back "sometimes", britney!

    i'll have to thread it bc i'm over it, honestly

    "sometimes" is one of my favorite britney songs/videos ever, if not the favorite. i can't believe britney retired it in 2002. honestly, why? it's clearly a fan favorite based on streaming stats, much more popular than the tired "boys" which for whatever reason (pun lol) she won't let rest in peace. the last decent treatment it got was in 2004 and that's 14 years ago. "sometimes" however is the ULTIMATE nostalgia treatment and her fans would freak the fuck out if she added it back.

    btw, i'm not going to accept the "it's too cheesy" excuse if she's still performing "oops". britney was always loved for displaying both sides, the sweet, off-stage more shy girl next door and the sex goddess. she's one of the few, if not the only one, who can walk that thin line and make it look authentic ("ooh la la", anyone?!).

    "sometimes" needs a comeback and 2018 is the year!

    I don't like Sometimes so I don't mind that. I don't hate it either but it's just a cute song.

    An old song that I want her to do again is Born To Make You Happy.

    I'd love for her to do any BOMT song that isn't, well, BOMT or Crazy They're the only two songs that ever get picked to represent that time period and I'm getting tired of hearing them after 20 years or whatever. Not saying they're bad songs, but it's the same reason I never listen to Toxic in my free time lol

    Both Sometimes and Born To Make You Happy need to come back for at least one performance

    All of her BOMT singles are timeless (except for From The Bottom of My Broken Heart), she should not ignore ANY of them... even if it's just a medley of them all

    I'd be happy for her to never utter the words "work bitch" again. I'll take Sometimes over that.

    Yeah, also Born to make you happy, I mean, she added stronger, oops and lucky to the vegas shows, Sometimes could fit perfecly there, also overprotected.

    I would not mind if she uses cd versios tbh, I{m kinda tired of those mixes that do not give that real emotional vibe when listening the album

    YES to everything in this thread. Sometimes is the ultimate nostalgia trip, and despite not charting too well in the U.S. is a stone cold classic. If Britney is going to continue doing Greatest Hits tours instead of touring for her albums, she needs to try and squeeze more of her classics into the shows besides the obvious (BOMT, OIDIA...).

    I don't think she likes Sometimes. Remember when she made fun of it during the Only Hotel Tour?

    She hadn't done Crazy since the Onyx Hotel Tour. I wanted her to do it again so I was glad to see it in the Las Vegas residency. Now I wouldn't care if she takes it off the setlist, but I wouldn't mind her keeping it either ONLY if she changes the choreography which was embarrassing.

    I would seriously love EMail My Heart It'd be fun to have a part in the show in which she'd do very unexpected songs like this, changing it regularly.

    I'm in the palm of your hand, my temperature is at your command.

    "e-mail my heart" is like my 2nd fav i'm so here for it!

    and i think the "sometimes" joke was just that, a joke. she was asked whether she has songs she doesn't like or not since then and replied smth like "all of my songs are fucking great"

    Both Sonetimes and BTMYH would be brilliant!

    I would love if she made a BOMT era medley with songs like Sometimes/BTMYH/FTBOMBH/etc.

    Or another cool idea could be (which I noticed Anastacia did on her last tour) is let her fans pick from a list of songs before each show a song which she will then perform at the show. The songs could be more random then just the singles.

    Oh the amazing things that would happen if they'd let Brit's fanbase in charge of her marketing.

    It would definitely be a shocker if she brought it back. It's been so long! Also BTMYH is another one.
