Retro Single Review: Shania Twain, “What Made You Say That”

1993 | Peak: #55

The video got the attention of Mutt Lange and Sean Penn, but Shania Twain’s first single made little impression beyond that at radio and retail.

It’s not a novelty song, but it might as well be, given the dated-on-arrival arrangement and mostly silly premise.  What saves it from being a complete dud?  Twain’s playful vocal and a fairly catchy hook.

Written by Tony Haselden and Stan Munsey, Jr.

Grade: C

Listen: What Made You Say That
