Did your favorite Shania Twain tracks make the cut?

As the top-selling female artist of all time, Shania Twain has a catalog packed with hits.

Since bursting onto the country music scene in 1992, Twain has consistently been one of the genre’s biggest hitmakers. With her trailblazing country/pop sound, Twain made a name for herself around the globe and went on to earn five Grammy Awards and sell 90 million albums worldwide.

With as many radio hits as Twain has, it’s tough to narrow down her best songs, but here’s our best attempt.

10. “Party for Two” (with Billy Currington)

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from Greatest Hits (2004)

Twain released two versions of the flirty “Party for Two” on her 2004 Greatest Hits compilation. The pop version featured Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath, while the country cut featured then-rising country singer Billy Currington. The song was well-received by fans and marked Twain’s third highest-charting debut at country radio.

9. “Forever and for Always”

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from Up! (2002)

Though Twain is known for anthems full of attitude and of female empowerment, she has quite a few memorable love songs in her catalog and this is one of them. “Forever and for Always” earned the superstar two Grammy nominations.

8. “(If You’re Not in It for Love) I’m Outta Here!”

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from The Woman in Me (1995)

Twain proved her staying power with the release of “(If You’re Not in It for Love) I’m Outta Here!” in 1995. The track became her second chart-topping single in the United States. The song garnered international success as well, with the release of a dance remix and a “Mutt Lange Mix.”

7. “Honey, I’m Home”

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from Come On Over (1997)

“Honey, I’m Home” immediately pulls listeners in with a beat that’s nearly impossible not to clap along to. The relatable lyrics appeal to working women who desire to be pampered at the end of the day. “Honey, I’m home and I had a hard day/ Pour me a cold one and oh, by the way/ Rub my feet, gimme something to eat/ Fix me up my favorite treat,” she sings in the chorus. Though she had success in the years that followed, “Honey, I’m Home” marks Twain’s final ascent to No.1 on the country radio charts.

6. “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?”

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from The Woman in Me (1995)

Despite falling off the charts at No.11, “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?” was Twain’s first true success at country radio in the U.S. The song finds Twain confronting her cheating lover about the other women in his life. With its clever lyrics and fiddle-heavy production, this track is not only one of Twain’s best, but also one of the most iconic songs of the 1990s.

5. “That Don’t Impress Me Much”

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from Come On Over (1997)

Twain’s confidence was put on full display in “That Don’t Impress Me Much.” Written as a clap-back to men who are too full of themselves, the song is one of Twain’s most recognizable hits to date. “Okay, so you’re a rocket scientist? That don’t impress me much,” she sings. Though it became an international hit, charting all over the world, the song peaked at No.8 in the states. Fun fact: In 2017, Twain revealed the line about Brad Pitt was written after she saw nude photos of the actor and his then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow in the news. “This was, like, all the rage,” Twain said. “I just thought, ‘I don’t know what all the fuss is about.’ I’m like, well that don’t impress me much, I mean what is all the fuss.”

4. “You’re Still the One”

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from Come On Over (1997)

“You’re Still the One” was written by Twain and Lange in response to the media’s criticism of their relationship. Some believed Twain was with Lange only to advance her career, while others felt that their 16-year age difference was a bit too extreme. The song was a massive success for Twain, becoming her biggest crossover hit ever. The song was nominated for four Grammy awards and took home two of them in 1998.

3. “Any Man of Mine”

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from The Woman in Me (1995)

Released in 1995, this song set the scene for what was to come in Twain’s career. Becoming an anthem for females everywhere, “Any Man of Mine” laid out the ground rules for dating strong, confident women and was Twain’s first chart-topping single.

2. “From This Moment On”

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from Come On Over (1997)

The ultimate slow dance song, “From This Moment On” was released on the heels of the wildly successful “You’re Still the One.” The romantic track was originally recorded as a duet with country singer Bryan White but was later released as a solo track due to White not being able to commit to promoting the single with Twain.  Charting higher on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart than it did on the Hot Country Songs chart, “From This Moment On” solidified Twain as a true crossover artist.

1. “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!”

Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain from Come On Over (1997)

Just when fans thought Shania Twain’s career couldn’t get any bigger, “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” hit the airwaves and brought the singer’s career to new heights. The song, with its catchy lyrics and distinctive opening guitar lick, is one of Twain’s signature songs. The accompanying music video also brought one of Twain’s most iconic looks to life.
