Top 10 Shania Twains Songs


From the southernmost tip of Canada to the top of the country pop charts. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Shania Twain Songs.


For this list, we’re focusing on the best Shania Twain songs from her collection of studio albums. And so, no guest spots or live covers have been included.

#10: “(If You're Not in It for Love) I'm Outta Here!”
The Woman in Me (1995)


For her second studio album, Shania ramped up the sex appeal, and the vocals of this sensual track exemplify her new persona. Co-written with then-husband and producer Mutt Lange, “If You’re Not in It for Love” tells a familiar tale about hyper-sexualized love, and the mid-tempo style allows Shania to take her time when breaking it down. For the mid-90s, the song blurred the line between country and pop, a crucial factor for Shania’s rapid crossover into the mainstream. Of course, it’s got a killer chorus, too, and the sassy music video further highlighted the playfulness and sex appeal of the emerging starlet.



#9: “I’m Gonna Getcha Good!”
Up! (2002)


By the early 21st century, Shania had become a legit pop culture icon, but her fourth studio album would also be her last. And for the lead single, she took somewhat of a formulaic approach to re-connect with her fan base. Lyrically, there’s definitely some, uh, “interesting” choices, such as the “fine piece of real estate line,” but Shania undoubtedly understands the beauty of a catchy hook. And with such a light-hearted tone, “I’m Gonna Getcha Good” unsurprisingly became another Top 10 hit, a testament to the fruitful relationship of Shania and her then song-writing partner/producer.




#8: “Honey, I’m Home”
Come On Over (1997)


As one of the more dynamic Shania productions, this song solidified her as THE defining star of late 90s country music. On its own, “Honey, I’m Home” stands up as energetic feminist anthem, but in the summer of ’98, it represented yet another hit from Shania’s sophomore album. And so, the driving beat and satirical lyrics serve as the exclamation point for the album as whole. Of course, the sound itself is more pop than country, and so it’s still a track that sounds timely years later. Once again, Shania embraced traditional country concepts and sprinkled the track with plenty of pop, resulting in a #1 hit.



#7: “Forever and For Always”
Up! (2002)


Truly a timeless Shania track, this song touches on the beauty of lasting relationships. With an ethereal musical backdrop, Shania’s vocals beautifully complement the inspirational vibe. It’s a stripped-down take on love, as Shania revels in the feeling rather than pushing too far with the lyrical content. If the song makes you think of Shania strolling along a beach, well, that’s exactly what happens in the naturalistic music video. Organic and sensual at the same time, “Forever and For Always” is a quintessential pop ballad, the icing on the cake for Shania after nearly 10 years on top of the charts.



#6: “From This Moment On”
Come On Over (1997)


Well, some pop songs just have that undeniable wedding vibe. And this Shania hit was most definitely constructed to be a classic love song. Like the visuals of the music video, the lyrical content of “From This Moment On” is both graceful and evocative. And considering all the love songs of the late 90s, well, this was important for Shania the artist. Originally intended to be a duet with Sir Elton John, country artist Bryan White ultimately provided the male vocals, making the track less of a pop ballad while emphasizing the lyrical content. The song just keeps building and building to the climax, with Shania slaying the epic chorus and further establishing herself as a brilliant songwriter.



#5: “Any Man of Mine”
The Woman in Me” (1995)


By the time of this song’s release, Shania was certainly a name, but she wasn’t a star. And, well, that all changed with “Any Man of Mine,” as the anthemic track begins with a declarative statement and follows-up with an infectious set of lyrics. Musically, it’s all about the country, but it takes a back seat to Shania’s vocal tone early on, only to rev up during the chorus. For someone unfamiliar with the emerging Shania persona, there’s a whole lotta fun to be had with just the music itself. Of course, the music video introduced Shania’s endearing personality to the mainstream. And with some classic do-si-do lyrics at the end, Shania tips her cap to the country genre, making her even more authentic and relatable.



#4: “That Don’t Impress Me Much”
Come On Over (1997)


Yet another late 90s Shania track that signified her major crossover into the mainstream, this track connects with its sharp and playful lyrics. Featuring bright guitars and a warm chorus of backing vocals, “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” is a brilliantly produced track for an artist on the cusp of mega-stardom. And with Shania dressed to impress in her leopard threads for the music video, the visuals helped sell the focal message. Released as a single in December of 1998, the track was yet another result of the great songwriting duo of Twain and Lange, and it gave Shania another mainstream hit well over a year after the album ‘s initial release.



#3: “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?”
The Woman in Me (1995)


With just the title alone, one may come to the conclusion that this is a country track, right? And when it first hit the radio in the mid-90s, well, the sultry tone and delivery of the lyrics had the public’s attention. But aside from being significant to the early part of Shania’s evolving career, “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under” legitimized her within the country genre, serving as the lead single from her groundbreaking second album. This track introduced the new Shania, a woman somewhat removed from Canadian life and now more immersed in the Nashville scene. It’s a catchy country pop single, and one that gave Shania her first notable hit.



#2: “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!”
Come On Over (1997)


By early 1999, Shania had fully crossed over into the mainstream. Even so, her undeniable sex appeal overshadowed her true artistry at times. And though a track like “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” had been written years before, it came at the perfect time for a couple of reasons. For one, it’s just a smart track written by Shania and Mutt Lange. And two, the early 90s release allowed for a higher-budget music video, one that flipped the script on Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” production from 1986. And so, Shania celebrated her womanhood with this song and video, fully aware of her image yet not afraid to push the boundaries just a little bit more.


Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

“What Made You Say That”
Shania Twain (1993)

“Up!”
Up! (2002)

“The Woman in Me (Needs the Man in You)”
The Woman in Me” (1995)


#1: “You’re Still the One”
Come On Over (1997)

Over the course of her career, Shania has sung about the feeling of wanting love, of anticipating love and even the feeling of being in love. But with “You’re Still the One,” she celebrated everlasting love. And while the lyrical and musical structure connected with the mainstream, the song is significant in that it recalls Shania’s journey with her then husband. And despite their ultimate break-up, their romance produced a number of classic pop country hits, with this one becoming a favorite amongst couples both young and old. Unsurprisingly, “You’re Still the One” reached #1 on the charts and paved the way for a new brand of pop music in North America.
