For the record, in case anyone takes it seriously, the claim that "Ooops" is a cover of an obscure old Louis Armstrong tune and the audio file of it circulating on the internet is a silly hoax. -- Infrogmation 06:19, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
- Mention of this hoax might be warranted in the article. The audio file was so convincing that I Googled the song title and the first result was this. I then came here looking for information about it, and failing that, was savvy enough to look on discussion for this information. -- Agentseven 17:02, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
someone vandalised the entire article by deleting everything and putting "oops i farted again" on it. I tried to revert the article back but ran into some trouble. Thankfully it was automatically reverted. can ppl please stop vandalising it. Oidia 05:47, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
- People can. Doesn't mean that they will. Asking someone not to vandalize a Wikipedia page is pretty much a waste of energy. -- 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:35, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
Another version of this song...
The Darkwave band The Last Dance have done a darker-feeling version of this song, in their album Reflections of Rage. It is the last track on that album, track 15, Oops, I Did it Again (TLD Version). Is the existence of a darkwave version of the song notable enough to mention in this article? --Nomad Of Norad (talk) 06:23, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
- Oh, nevermind, I see it in the body of the article, rather than in the list of remixes at the end where I was looking for it. I must have blinked and missed it before, even though I thought I had read through that paragraph before posting about this here. (Looks sheepish.) --Nomad Of Norad (talk) 05:50, 16 June 2008 (UTC)
This song is a cover, it is not an original.
Toxic and Oops i did it againd a number 1# song due strong sales on itunes...
- This review is transcluded from Talk:Oops!... I Did It Again/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.
A few little things, nothing major.
- Rami Yacoub is professionally known as Rami. Why does one field use both names, the other field only uses one name?
- I've clarified the Jack-Rose reference, it took me a bit to figure out what that referenced.
- You list who she lost to at the Grammys, but not who she lost to at Kids' Choice.
- "former territory" sounds like New Zealand was formerly a territory, not meaning "first in the sequence". Why not "former country"?
- That's an unusual section heading. I presume that's standard for song articles? All That isn't even "live to tape".
Legacy and impact
- Perhaps list "Marry, Ageyn Hic Hev Donne Yt" by name, so people get what made it "medieval-style"?
- Passing, congrats! -- Zanimum (talk) 14:11, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
Status has a questionable habit, of replacing existing and previously agreed upon release dates, with rather irrelevant release dates, based on foreign and rather possibly vague sources. Jive Records sent Oops!...I Did It Again to radio on Monday, March 27, 2000. The provided "source" is rather a German/Austrian date for a physical CD single, which has no bearing on the home market (United States) that received it initially in March of 2000. I do not see how and why it is acceptable a proper U.S. related source has not been provided, in place of an obviously late date of April 25, 2000 for a European release, which was not even a European exclusive single.
In fact, Status' sensibilities in regards to dates of releases, has often been that of providing sources (for the sake of providing a source) that have no relevance to an artist's primary market, in which an initial release usually occurs but carelessly focusing on charts for non-primary foreign markets. That is borderline vandalism to a degree, when a provided date contradicts existing charting information that points to it newly charting after the week of April 15, 2000 and other existing background information. Demanding that I provide a source against reverting that unwarrant change, is not exactly unacceptable by guidelines. It is also, NOT fully acceptable, as in the first place it proves to be wrong anyway. Just because the original author(s) of this article did not provide a source for March 27th date, does not mean you (Status) can replace it eons later with a half-baked (barely verifiable) and not so feasible release date source from Austria. It is nearly impossible to do research on disappearing and dead link sources.
Th very least I can come up with right now, are these "unverifiable", third party sources from 1999-early 2000. Obviously unlike this German source, there is a pattern regarding March 27th:     
Luckily for Status, in now being a novice engineer, I do not invest as much time and energy here as a hobby anymore (outside of automotive). Otherwise, I would have corrected this nonsense much sooner, if not for demise of the vast Google News Archive search and many others.––––Carmaker1 (talk) 15:38, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
- I looked and looked for a source for the March 27, to no avail, so thus, I used the only verifiable date I could find. This source does the trick for that. Thank you for finding it. All you had to do was add the actual source to the article, and there wouldn't have been a problem. — Status (talk · contribs) 19:53, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
