  • Twain said: "There is a typical Shania attitude in the lyric, a definite female confidence. It's all about a girl who knows what she wants, she not only knows how to get it, but she's going to get it good." (Source Tommy's #1 Shania Twain Supersite)
  • The song was one of Twain's biggest hits worldwide, charting in different countries that she has never had hits in before. The song entered Hot Country Songs at #24 in the week of October 19, 2002, the then highest debut for a female artist.

  • 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!
