  • The title says it all; doubtless Mrs. Whitehouse - she of "Mary Long" fame - took suitable umbrage at the UK release.
  • Twain co-wrote the song with her then-husband, producer Mutt Lange; the video - complete with barking dog - runs to 4 minutes 28 seconds. Released to radio January 2, 1995, the single was certified Gold for 500,000 sales in August, making it her first gold single. It also won SOCAN Song of the Year award at the Canadian Country Music Awards in 1995. The B Side was "Any Man Of Mine".
  • According to the Robin Eggar biography of Shania Twain, the track was her breakthrough video; the first video made in England featured a pair of animated boots but was "too clever by half. The decision was made to junk it, and instead, Mary [Bailey] convinced Mercury to employ the services of a man who knew how to bring out the best in beautiful women." This man was John Derek, who at various times both worked with and was married to Ursula Andress, Linda Evans and Bo Derek. >>
