  1. Sometimes

    "Sometimes" is a song by American recording artist Britney Spears, taken from her debut studio album ...Baby One More Time. Written by J?rgen Elofsson and produced by Per Magnusson and David Kreuger, the song was released as Spears' second single on April 30, 1999 by Jive Records. "Sometimes" is a teen pop song that draws influences from bubblegum pop, and alludes to a relationship where a shy girl is reserved on expressing feelings to her lover. The song received generally mixed reviews from contemporary critics, who noted it as a further hit from ...Baby One More Time and a competent single, despite considering it an entirely unremarkable song, and an annoying representation of Spears' innocent years. "Sometimes" attained worldwide success, peaking inside the top ten in eleven countries. In the United States, the song peaked at number twenty one. The song reached number one in Belgium, Netherlands and New Zealand, while reaching number two in Australia. In the United Kingdom, the song reached number three, and is also Spears' third best-selling single in the country. An accompanying music video, directed by Nigel Dick, was shot at the Paradise Cove in Malibu, California. It portrays Spears watching her love interest from afar. Spears has performed "Sometimes" in four of her concert tours, including at the ...Baby One More Time Tour, the Oops!... I Did It Again World Tour, and the Dream Within a Dream Tour.
