Bad Covers: Oops! I Did It Again

Is this the original Oops! I Did It Again?Memepool.com points out that the folks at Supermasterpiece are claiming priority over Britney Spears’ iconOops ! I Did It Again. Their story is:

“Oops ! I Did It Again” was recorded in April, 1932 in a Chicago studio, most likely Nearlie’s or West and Fourth. Cut for the Decca label by Louis Armstrong and elemends of Zilner Randolph’s touring group, “Oops!” failed to make the chart impact of “All of Me,” another side recorded in the same session, and soon fell out of print.

The song remained all-but-forgotten until sixty years later when a young Britney Spears sent her interpretation of the Armstrong tune all the way to the top of the charts.

Whether you believe Supermasterpiece’s history or not, they’ve got an MP3 available. And, because I love bad knockoffs of bad pop, I like it.

My wife, on the other hand, is haunted by choruses of bad songs and has difficulty getting them out of her head. It doesn’t help that I watch, and when it appears she might have shaken it off, I whisper in her ear:

Oops!…I did it again?I played with your heart, got lost in the game?Oh baby, baby?Oops!…You think I’m in love?That I’m sent from above?I’m not that innocent

  1. I don’t know about the rest of you, but listening to this song, I don’t hear the recording quality that I would expect from any sort of professional studio work.

    This more seems like a nicely orchestrated practical joke. A guy with a singing voice that *sounds* like Armstrong, though to me it sounds like this is by Cookie Monster!

    There’s also the fact that you can hear “puffs” in the microphone when he sings… What respectable studio that would record Louis Armstrong would dare having cheap equipment, even in 1932?

    This is just a big “wtf” to me ;)

  2. Appears to be fake. If you look at the bottom right of the image below the LP it lists who the singer, trumpet player, etc is. Well made though.
