The twelfth and final single from Come On Over wasn’t planned, but persistent unsolicited airplay earned it release.
There was no video or any other promotional effort, as Twain had sequestered herself from the public eye by that point. So this one got by on its sheer charm, and has the added bonus of not being overplayed to death.
Despite references to the “net” and Dr. Ruth, it still sounds remarkably fresh today. It’s clever, has a great beat, and borrows liberally from eighties arena rock without being overwhelmed by it.
Shania and Mutt made it look so easy. Take one listen to country radio today for a reminder that it’s not.
Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain
