What can you say about a #1 country single with the word chassis in the first verse?
This is the only song from her last three studio albums that Twain didn’t have a hand in writing. That’s not a total surprise, as the “my love is like a car” metaphor is very “Mutt” Lange. It could’ve been recorded by Def Leppard or Bryan Adams just as easily.
But Twain’s sheer enthusiasm elevates it, and while it was easily the most pop-flavored hit from The Woman in Me, it might be a little too country for even Brad Paisley in 2011.
Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange
