For all the shit Britney gets nowadays, her singles have always been top notch. Even when her vocals were long ago deemed utterly fake and her persona as manufactured as a slice of American cheese, a fan would always have the singles: the sensual “I’m A Slave 4 U,” the clever “If You Seek Amy,” the absolutely perfect “Toxic.” And here is Britney trailblazing pop yet again with a single that blows most of Circus out of the water. Britney does dubstep, something I couldn’t believe until I verified from multiple different streams. Listen to the whole song (it’s really good!), but the bridge around 2:05 almost made me fall off my chair.

The lyrics are shit, even for Britney. I always take her stuff as a little tongue in cheek though so doesn't bother me. And nearly all her major singles have had decent music - Toxic's just the best.

the comma always goes inside the quote. any punctuation does I'm pretty sure

altho personally it makes more sense to put it outside...

thebhoy

If you're using quotations in terms of denoting the name of something, ie. a book or song title, I'm pretty sure punctuation goes outside, but I could be wrong.

Tyler
01.13.11
it ultimately depends on publication style in journalism. here, we dont give a fuck. usually in journalism you throw the comma outside for song-titles and inside for quotes. at least that's how i've been taught. and that's just CP style. You've still got AP, Globe, Chicago and a shit-ton of other specifics. Ultimately, there's no actual rule.

SCREAM!
01.13.11
I was just going by what seemed to make sense honestly guys, I could of very well been wrong. Seems to me if it isn't part of the quote or title then it should go outside the quotation marks but I wasn't citing any rule or anything. It just really seems to make a lot more sense that way
