Spears reportedly shot a video for "Womanizer" yesterday at a Los Angeles sushi restaurant, with Brit playing the role of a "vampy waitress." In the meantime, "Womanizer" will make its television debut this Monday on a new episode of MTV's The Hills.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
