2. Spring Breakers
“Everytime” by Britney Spears
The four-girl crime wave at the heart of Harmony Korin’s bacchanal established themselves early in the film as Britney Spears fans, with a parking lot group-sing of “Baby One More Time.” So when would-be mentor James Franco sits down at the piano for a sensitive version of Spears’ “Everytime,” the thug draws the bikini-clad gals one step further into his world of violence and gives the scene an eerie creepiness, especially when the girls don’t take their pink ski masks off as they sing along to the ballad. A simple pop number then becomes a lurid clarion call before moving on to Britney’s own studio version as the backdrop for a violent crime montage, complete with hog-tied and pistol-whipped victims. It’s likely not as flattering as Spears might have imagined when she licensed the track, but it’s the moment in the movie that best makes the case for how short a distance it is from not-that-innocent to totally debauched.
