15 Best Shania Twain Songs That Made Her One Of The Genre’s Biggest Hitmakers

Shania Twain songs have stood the test of time ever since she burst onto the country music scene and reigned the airwaves in the 1990s. The Canadian country-pop queen blasted out anthems that empower women worldwide and poignant ballads that steadily climbed the charts – even leaving fans wanting more.

Check out these songs from one of the genre’s biggest hitmakers.

1. “You’re Still the One”

From: Come on Over (1997)

“You’re Still the One” is among the biggest songs of Shania Twain‘s career. It peaked at No. 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 for nine weeks, took home two Grammy Awards, and helped the album sell over 40 million copies all over the world, making it the top-selling album in history by a female artist.

2. “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!”

From: Come on Over (1997)

Twain wrote the song “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” about her own self-empowerment. The singer admitted that she was a late bloomer in accepting that she was becoming a woman, adding that she grew up as a tomboy who always played sports with the boys. But the moment she began getting curves and self-conscious of her body – she ultimately learned to embrace it.

3. “If You’re Not in It for Love (I’m Outta Here)”

From: The Woman in Me (1995)

To satisfy global genre demand, Twain’s “If You’re Not in It for Love (I’m Outta Here)” was marketed in three various mixes all over the world. And they made the right decision! As a result, the song became Twain’s breakthrough hit in Australia and reached No. 1 on the Canada Country Tracks.

4. “That Don’t Impress Me Much”

From: Come on Over (1997)

The sassy country hit “That Don’t Impress Me Much” created buzz following its massive success on a global scale in 1999, where Twain found herself dealing with three self-absorbed suitors: the know-it-all, the man obsessed with his looks, and the one obsessed with his car. Clearly, they all fail to impress Twain.

5. “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under”

From: The Woman in Me (1995)

The song may sound like an upbeat country track, but the clever lyrics reveal something else as Twain finds herself confident enough that her man is cheating on her with more than a few other women. 

The single was certified Gold for selling 500,000 copies, making it her first gold single.

6. “From This Moment On”

From: Come on Over (1997)

The country-pop track was deemed one of the highlights of the best-selling studio album by a female artist. It turned out to be a hit in numerous countries. In addition to the United States, “From This Moment On” was also a hit in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United Kingdom, among others.

7. “Home Ain’t Where His Heart Is (Anymore)”

From: The Woman in Me (1995)

The classic country heartbreak ballad may not be among Twain’s biggest hits on charts, but it endured through the years probably much better than any other tracks placing higher in the charts.

8. “Any Man of Mine”

From: The Woman in Me (1995)

Every true country girl will proudly admit that “Any Man of Mine” is their anthem. With its roaring rhythm and upbeat fiddle licks, the song quickly gives you just the right country feel you want. 

It was no surprise when it earned nominations for both Best Country Song and Best Female Country Vocal Performance during the 1996 Grammy Awards.

9. “Honey, I’m Home”

From: Come on Over (1997)

Every working woman who longs to be pampered at the end of the day would surely relate to “Honey, I’m Home.” But, of course, it has a beat that’s almost impossible not to clap along to, right away pulling listeners in.

The song went on to become Twain’s final No. 1 single on the Billboard Country singles chart.

10. “No One Needs to Know”

From: The Woman in Me (1995)

Billboard described the song as “an infectious concoction that boasts a lighter, fresher sound” for a reason. 

It reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and still stands out today as one of the most truly countrified songs on Twain’s breakout record.

11. “You Win My Love”

From: The Woman in Me (1995)

The song was solely written by Twain’s then-husband and producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange, making it among the very few pieces wherein the country superstar did not co-write. It spent two weeks atop Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart before it took a significantly huge drop to No. 11.

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

From: The Woman in Me (1995)

The album’s title track and third single, “The Woman in Me (Needs the Man in You),” is a carefully paced ballad that tells the tale of a woman who admits that even though she’s strong, she also needs to be taken care of sometimes.

The song became Twain’s first major adult contemporary crossover hit. 

13. “Love Gets Me Every Time”

From: Come on Over (1997)

14. “Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)”

From: Come on Over (1997)

Released as the lead single off Twain’s third studio album, the song considers falling in love in spite of the several efforts to avoid it. It reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs, where it stayed for five consecutive weeks, marking Twain’s fifth-longest reign on the chart.

15. “When You Kiss Me”

From: Up! (2002)

“When You Kiss Me” has successfully captured the enthusiasm of finding a love that will endure the test of time. Ironically, the song was Twain’s ultimate full studio endeavor with Mutt Lange. The two announced their split in 2008 after 14 years of marriage.
