Man! I Feel like a Woman!
Since the release of Shania Twain's 12-times-platinum Come On Over in 1997, this track has been among the most obvious single choices among the steady stream of releases to both pop and country radio. Already a hit at her home base (It peaked at No. 4 on Hot Country Singles & Tracks in June), there's no reason that "Man!", with its coquettish turn of phrase, shouldn't have the same kind of appeal as her earlier "That Don't Impress Me Much". There are plenty of tasty ingredients that radio traditionally searches out here-great tempo, attitude, a hook that sells like ice cream in summer (including a guitar riff that conjures the ubiquitous "Spirit In The Sky"), and the instantly recognizable vocals of a woman who is a fond acquaintance of so many millions out there now. This is country crossover at its best and that little something different that radio says it is always after, remixed gently to add a pop touch without stripping it of its vital twang. And wait until you catch this videoclip, which features Twain imitating Robert Palmer in his groundbreaking 1986 clip for "Addicted to Love," complete with buffed and blank-eyed male models in the background. Hilarious. This is all good; go for it.
