Britney Spears – Toxic
13th March 2004
As I’m sure you’ll have noticed, brilliant no.1s have been a pretty rare occurence in the last 2 years – I’ve only included one song each from ’04 and ’05 in my top 25, and this is the song I’ve declared the best of 2004. It’s also quite possibly Britney’s best moment of the 00s, although I am extremely partial to Overprotected. I’ve said enough about Britney already in her earlier appearances – all that’s left is to hope that her next single will be as good as this one and all the releases between the two can be conveniently forgotten.
