Oops I Did It Again: The Original

Oops I Did It Again: The Original

“Oops! I Did It Again” was recorded in April 1931 in a Chicago studio, most likely Nearlie’s or West and Fourth. Cut for the Decca label by Louis Armstrong and elements 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.
