The Popdust Files: britney spears, PD 40 top ten

#7 Britney Spears, “Toxic”

Year: 2004

Fun Fact: The song’s distinctive Eastern-sounding string hook is in fact taken directly from the source—it’s a sample from Bollywood flick Ek Duuje Ke Liye, music by Lata Mangeshkar and S. P. Balasubramaniam. Impressively, the hook is not lifted verbatim from the movie’s score, but rather sewn together from two out-of-order sections of the piece.

Best Moment: Any of Britney‘s falsetto’d “Too high, can’t come down” coos at the end of the song’s verse, first appearing at :43. The most representative lyric of the song’s delirious, disorienting charm.
