I'll Have What She's Having

Album: Keep On Loving You (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • McEntire told Great American Country: "This is a cute song. I loved it the first time I heard it. They had horns on it and I said, 'Of course we'll change it to fiddle and steel guitar.' It's real sassy. A woman is walking into a bar and she's looking for a man. She sees a woman having a good time, dancing with a man. 'I'll have what she's having? and by the way, that looks hot.' We'll have fun with it onstage."
  • The line, "I'll have what she's having" was popularized in the 1989 movie When Harry Met Sally. In an effort to prove how convincing a woman can be during intimacy, Sally simulates an orgasm right at the table while she and Harry are eating at a deli. When she finishes her performance, an older woman at a nearby table says the famous line.
