Caren Explains Britney, Peter, Paul and Mary 3

I am embarrassed to admit that I've liked the past few Britney singles. The most recent -- "3"-- is pretty darn catchy... but I always scratch my headwhen I hear the lyrics:

1, 2, 3
Peter, Paul & Mary
Gettin' down with 3P


Peter, Paul & Mary? Really? Nothing about "Puff the Magic Dragon" makes me think about "gettin' down" with Britney.

This leads me to two questions:
1) Could the record label not afford to get some better songwriting?, or...
2) Is the American consumer so easily bought that quality no longer matters?

If it's the first, I would like to let the record label know that I'm available for hire. Okay, I admit, my songwriting credits are non-existent, but I know how to rhyme as well as your current roster of songwriters. Here are some other ideas for that "Peter, Paul and Mary" line:

- Larry, Moe and Curly
- The snake got Adam and Eve
- Nash, Stills and Crosby
- Faith, hope and charity
- The Brothers Bee Gee
- Huey, Dewey, Louie
- The good, the bad, the ugly


3 - Britney Spears

I agree it is catchy. Something you didn't comment on is that there are only 2 P's in 'Peter, Paul and Mary' not 3. My final verdic is that it's good music to dance to but not something I could sing along with. :-\

The point is its 2 guys with Britney caught in between. She plays the role of Mary. 3 P is 3 people. No idea what the 180 degrees is about unless shes standing on her head while getting sandwiched. I'm not big into 3 somes but they're always better with 2 girls.
