  • Karen from Manchester, NhMy daughter was born around the time this song came out, and she was hooked from babyhood! Granted, I think she was born to be a Shania fan, as the song that was playing the moment she was born was "That Don't Impress Me Much". The real funny thing is, I was never a Shania fan until my daughter started liking her!
