What is your favorite Shania Twain song vs What do you feel is her best song?
I absolutely love her music, and have since the 90s. She’s one of Country’s best, and really played that crossover and mainstream beautifully.
She has so many good songs!!! It’s hard to choose just one, but the one I find myself listening to the most is “Forever and for always”. It’s so damn good.
Her best, I actually think it’s ... I know, boring choice, but From This Moment... her version is so iconic.

I love a lot of 90s/00s female country singers and Shania has some good songs but generally I’ve never really got why she did so well vs everyone else. Maybe because with Come On Over she was more pop than country.
Anyway this is my favourite of hers, from her first album

She has a unique voice, a good range, was hot, and her music was CATCHY. Her first album was country with great songs and did very well. Come On Over went Country Pop, and was a phenomenon.
Every single on that album was a smash.

"No One Needs To Know" is my favorite. I don't do Shania deep cuts, so I guess her best will probably come from "Come On Over", though I prefer "The Woman In Me", though it wasn't as well received.

Her last album from a few years ago had some great songs on it. Completely underrated.
“Who’s Gonna Be Your Girl” was phenomenal

I never liked her, so my favorite Shania Twain song is one that is over. She has no best song, they are all equally terrible.

A lot of her success was due to her looks honestly. She was one of the most beautiful country singers of all time and modern country music sells sex just like pop music.

She was as country as Taylor Swift. Swift just did it younger so she could enjoy the pop turn. Twain was too old for pop music when she hit. She wasn't gonna look normal jumping around complaining about boys. She was a 30 yr old woman. Those are usually rock chicks or Alanis types.

Ummm she very much was Country. And Come on Over was Country also, just Country Pop.
The actual albums songs were not as “poppy” as the single versions.
I loved this song.

That was a brilliant move on Shania's (or Mutt's) part, to have an international version and a US version of the same album. I remember the album being huge in the UK when I visited.

Those are pop songs disguised as country tunes with fiddles, accordions and acoustic guitars. That doesn't make them country.

R22, I know. Country albums usually don't sell well outside of America (although there are exceptions) but the album was able to crossover bigtime with all those songs tunred into pop songs on the radio.

Country music isn't as over produced as her records. But I'm not saying they aren't extremely well done. Just not real country.

It did seem like Faith Hill would be a consisten star after This Kiss and Breathe were both huge hits. Don't know why she didn't become even bigger. Maybe Carrrie Underwood stole her thunder in the 00s.

Jagged Little Pill is 100 times the album and groundbreaking. It became a cultural phenomenon. I didn't know a male or female at the time that didn't own it.

Well Come On Over was a phenomenon also. Like someone else said, it sold in a way Country music never did (and still doesn’t to that degree). Shania had 4 huge hit albums. Her latest didn’t fair as well.
|by Anonymous||reply 29||Last Monday at 5:26 PM|
Come on Over was one of those albums like Let's Talk About Love, Falling Into You, the Creed albums, Nickelback albums, etc. that nobody today admits to owning. Jageed Little Pill wasn't like that.

I get that some Southern folks and Country fans are Country purists, but like with everything, there are sub genres. Country Pop is a sub to Country. It was born out of it.
And in recent years Country HipHop has been a thing

My taste in country/Americana leans more toward Paula Frazer, Gillian Welch or Neko Case, rather that over-produced country pop garbage like Shania.

In 1997 many Country fans loved her, bought the album Come On Over, but would say it isn’t “real” country.
In 2021 it is considered real country and you hear that same thing about Sam Hunt and Lil Nas X.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||Last Monday at 5:31 PM|
I prefer The Woman In Me to Come On Over, but I listen to all of her music. She was a beautiful little dynamo that country music didn’t seem to know what to do with.
To answer OPs question: I like many of the songs on The Woman in Me, but I’ll go with Is There Life After Love?

Taylor was Country at first but by the time her second or third album came I don’t know how you could say she was Country.
That was pure pop eventually.
Recently we saw Sam Hunt get highly criticized by Country fans and critics, saying he wasn’t real Country after Montevallo became an unexpected sensation in 2014.

Shania hates mayo all right, and she can’t eat chicken salad, that's no joke. We gave it to her once, she threw up in the limo – the lady hates chicken salad. So I bring out a bunch of tuna fish sandwiches – she still doesn’t believe me – I say, Shania, I’m allergic to mayo – which, by the way, is a lie. Shania still doesn’t believe me so I eat two of the sandwiches in front of her to prove it. So she eats one and a half sandwiches, one and a half sandwiches… before she realizes, its chicken salad.

I think her music is fine if you see it as just country-flavored dance-pop music rather than straight country. There is a big gap between the sound of Shania, Kenny, Garth, etc and the sound of Waylon, Dolly and Johnny.

Was the poppers remix of That Don't Impress Me Much released in the US or just the standard album track? It was a huge hit in the UK and sold more than most of the #1 songs that year even though it peaked at #3.
Other record companies capitalised on its success by releasing a poppers remix of Faith Hill's The Way You Love Me and a poppers remix of Lee Ann Womack's I Hope You Dance. There was also a poppers remix of Leann Rimes' Can't Fight The Moonlight played in a lot of gay clubs.
Shania having a worldwide number one album in 2017 completely passed me by.

I only like pop country, since “real” country appears to have been made only pre-1960. I loved Shania’s happy, poppy songs but I hate one of her biggest hits “That Don’t Impress Me Much.” The lyrics and beat are just grating.

I love "I'm Gonna Getcha Good" and the video. Maybe I'm thinking of someone else, but I believe it was Shania who, while not outspoken about it, has issues with homophobia. I recall a few threads from a while back that had stories of her being a cold bitch to gay fans. Sad, because I've always liked her and her music, but since reading those, I'm turned off her now. Anyone else recall those other threads? Surprised no one has brought it up.

I like Shania because she really didn't debut until she was 30, which in the world of pop music back in the mid-90s was positively ancient. Today, that would be the equivalent of not debuting as a pop star until like 40+.
I think Mutt did some witchcraft or something to help her sell as many records as she did. The songs were good but not THAT good. She was/is beautiful, though!
