For over 25 years, Shania Twain has been creating and playing songs that have achieved high chart rankings, and we have to admit, that’s pretty impressive.
A great deal.
Twain is the most commercially successful female country musician ever, and since releasing her award-winning compilation album “The Woman in Me” in 1995, she has provided a pathway to stardom for female artists such as Taylor Swift, and has also generated a new breed of pop country tunes.
Unafraid to expose her innermost self (or even her body like in a recent photoshoot promoting self-love), the 57-year-old singer has been making a splash, be it by collaborating with Harry Styles on a duet or going bold with her Grammy ensemble.
In recognition of her impressive successes, we’ve put together a compilation of the greatest Shania Twain tunes ever.
I Feel Like a Woman”
We have picked out noticeably shortened versions of tunes like “Still the One” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman”.
Twain’s latest album, “Come On Over,” has been a huge success and a revolutionary release. It will be featured as part of her world tour beginning April, along with some new songs from her recently released album, “Queen of Me.”
We examined the Billboard Hot 100 and Country Singles Charts, as well as Spotify’s streaming history, to construct this list.
Look here for an essential compilation of Shania Twain songs.
Was it the glow of the moon or the twinkle of the stars?
It is not certain but one thing is definite: Twain’s song “What Made You Say That” was the first of multiple successful tracks for the artist and her risqué video clip caused a stir.
Experiencing freedom and not being controlled by anyone were the primary motivations.
This song off “The Woman in Me” won best country song at the 38th Grammy Awards and has the artist demanding respect and setting the terms, rather than the man being in control.
John Derek, the director of “10 Commandments”, directed a video which displays Twain taking control and handling cattle.
Shania Twain collaborated with producer Robert “Mutt” Lange (who later became her ex-husband) on the song “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under,” and she does not mince her words in it.
Don’t expect any help from the singer if you have been a cheater or unfaithful, for he has warned “Don’t come to me the next time you feel lonely; Instead, dial the operator and see if she has time for you.”
This song is yet again another victorious combination with her spouse Lange from the famous album, “The Woman in Me”.
Shania Twain expresses her rejection of someone who is not in the relationship for love.
In “(If You’re Not in it For Love) I’m Outta Here!”, Shania Twain expresses her unwillingness to stay in a relationship if the other person is not truly invested in it out of love.
Twain emphasizes that men who are not honest should not take her time.
Do not mix up with Billie Holiday’s widely known song, “God Bless the Child” is a beautiful and emotional track jointly authored by Twain.
In a shift away from some of the more confident songs on “The Woman in Me”, the ballad is a tribute to Shania Twain’s struggles while growing up and a portion of the proceeds went to support charities which seek to end childhood hunger.
Twain’s “Come On Over” album, boasting a distinct rock vibe, continues to hold its title as the most successful studio album from a solo female musician, having sold more than 40 million records globally.
The first track to make an appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 was “Love Gets Me Every Time,” a toe-tapping track that has caused the vocalist to become smitten.
It’s understandable to feel a twinge of envy occasionally, as everyone experiences bouts of jealousy at some point.
If you snoop around Shania, like reading her emails or getting suspicious when she does something as small as painting her nails, you are stepping out of the boundaries.
The underlying idea in “Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I love You),” which is the second single taken from the popular album “Come On Over” to make it to the Billboard Hot 100, is that there shouldn’t be any doubt about the fact that the singer loves the other person.
During a conversation with TODAY.com, Twain shared that she believes the 1998 song is her most meaningful one, not only because of the plentiful listeners it has obtained, but also because it has a special meaning to numerous couples.
The hit single, “You’re Still the One,” lingered on the Billboard Hot 100 for a total of 42 weeks, and also netted almost 400 million plays on Spotify and earned two Grammy Awards (including for best country song and best female country vocal performance).
Twain’s “From This Moment On” is one of her most popular songs, which was composed together with her then spouse.
This cherished wedding tune commences with sentimental wedding pledges before affirming expectations of permanent love and felicity.
Greetings, I’m back!
Twain puts an original twist on the cliche of the husband coming home from work only to find his wife waiting on him. Instead, she instructs him to massage her feet, make her something to eat, and even prepare her favorite snack since she’s had a rough day.
This fiddle-led melody achieved the top spot on the Billboard Country Singles ranking.
C’mon ladies, let’s do this!
In Twain’s newest amazing video, she takes a playful approach to Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” from 1986 by exchanging the emotionless female models for good-looking male musicians.
This soothing, harmonic song may not have earned the same fame as “You’re Still the One” and “From This Moment”, but it remains a beloved favorite amongst fans.
Despite this, the track got a great deal of acknowledgement; it was included in the soundtrack for the popular romantic comedy “Notting Hill” and selected as a potential Song of the Year recipient at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards.
The single from the widely acclaimed “Come On Over” is a cheerful and bubbly track centered around having a good time.
Twain croons for us to be triumphant, be a luminary, and be proud of who we are before inviting everyone to relax and clear their heads.
Following the “Come On Over” excursion, Shania Twain rejoined producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange in the studio to record her fourth album and subsequently released it in autumn 2002 under the title “Up”.
was an international success
The first song off the album, “I’m Gonna Getcha Good!”, was a huge hit all over the world.
This project was incredibly successful; it sold millions of copies and earned the performer their third Diamond-rated record by the Recording Industry Association of America, rising higher than ever before.
The title track of the record is a buoyant tribute to having an optimistic mindset even when things seem to be deteriorating.
Though the song “Forever and for Always” was not successful in winning any awards at the 2004 Grammys where it was nominated, it still managed to attract the attention of a well-known figure who was fond of the color purple.
Twain referred to Prince as an “extremely beloved” companion and noted that he was a devotee and recorded his own rendition of one of her tunes, prompting her to include it in her performance series in Las Vegas during 2019.
She’s a geologist, a soldier, an astronaut, a mom of three and a bunch more highlighted in this fun and lively song that expresses female strength.
This piece celebrates all women everywhere, speaking to them and reminding them that they are capable of achieving whatever they aspire to be.
It appears they are still suffering with the breakup and ask their former flame if life has been kind to them since the split.
The pain only occurs when she is taking in air.
Her heart aches continually, and her hopes and aspirations wither as she slumbers.
The singer made a comeback in 2011, appearing in the film “Why Not?” after a considerable absence from the stage.
The song “Today is Your Day” is a powerful anthem about never giving up no matter the circumstances.
Twain takes it back to her lively origin with her upbeat song “Giddy Up!”
The first single from Twain’s 2023 album “Queen of Me” features the artist partying and having a great time in the city, with everyone happy and cheerful.
