I feel like listing things has gotten to be the sad land of the uncreative but whatever, I have a job. That clearly excuses not trying. That is what this comes out of.

I Feel Like A Woman! Consider the track’s absence a testament to the depth and durability of this singer’s catalog. With that out of the way, here are Shania’s ten most compelling tracks, in chronological order. At the time, she was just a superb country singer, rather than a superhuman category-buster.

It’s a rollicking tune, a blues progression gussied up for a country dance floor. The male-female harmonies during the verses are particularly impressive. You hear it in the drums, which aim towards stadiums; you hear it in the guitar, which yearns for the open spaces of pop radio.
