  1. Lucky

    "Lucky" is a song by American recording artist Britney Spears, taken from her second studio album Oops!... I Did It Again. It was released on August 8, 2000 by Jive Records as the second single of the album. After meeting with producers Max Martin and Rami Yacoub in Sweden, the singer recorded several songs for the album, including "Lucky". The teen pop and dance-pop song tells a story about a famous pop star named Lucky, who, despite seemingly having it all – fame, wealth, beauty – is truly lonely and unhappy on the inside. It received positive reviews from music critics, who considered its melody and rhythm as sweet and catchy, and noted the lyrics to be about Spears herself. "Lucky" achieved commercial success worldwide, peaking at number one in Austria, Europe, Sweden and Switzerland, while reaching the top ten in several European countries. In the United Kingdom, the song peaked at number five, and is Spears' tenth best-selling single in the country, having sold over 225,000 copies there. An accompanying music video was directed by Dave Meyers, and portrays Spears as herself and a melancholy movie star Lucky, who just want to have some fun in life. Spears has performed "Lucky" in a number of live appearances and in two of her concert tours. Country singer Taylor Swift performed the song on her Speak Now World Tour in 2011.
