Britney Spears' "... Baby One More Time" Music Video Captures All Of Your Back-To-School Feelings
When the end of August rolls around, summer begins to wind down and those back-to-school feelings emerge. There's usually a mixture of emotion: Excitement for what's ahead, but sadness that the warmth and freedom of summer will soon be gone. Before you make those back-to-school resolutions, take a moment to bask in one of the greatest academic moments in pop culture: Britney Spears' "... Baby One More Time" video.
The "... Baby One More Time" video is everything. Not only is the track one of the most iconic pop songs of the '90s, but the accompanying visual more than did it justice. Spears will forever be associated with her schoolgirl uniform, although the entire video is stellar from start to finish.
Another reason it's so great is because it captures so many feelings we have about high school. From waiting for the final bell to ring to the energy of youth, Spears spoke for all of us with "... Baby One More Time," so let's pay tribute to her. As you gather your school supplies and prepare for the academic year ahead (or if you're just feeling really nostalgic about fall), here are seven times "...
