Yes, "Oops! I Did It Again" is that crappy Britney Spears song. Believe it or not, Richard Thompson turns it into something good. And yes, "Take It to the Limit" is that crappy Eagles song. Believe it or not, Etta James turns it into something great. After I played it, someone called in to request that I play it again.
