I guess they want to be future journalists..lol. Why report accurately when you can make stuff up. lol I think it has been really clear TODAY was not a lead single for anything. This was being released as the result of WHY NOT? and the end of that chapter, and the beginning of a new one.

I am also done listening to the negative chatter and how bad Shania is because she doesn't meet some imagined standard.

Yeah, but it's the COUNTRY chart, so I don't know how many people here in Italy download country songs from iTunes. I guess me, you, Rita and other few people made the trick

Sounds like Shania is saying bones to me FV. I do believe that is the saying, sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can never hurt you. But if
you ask me words really can hurt you.

That is the way I hear it. Remember the old nursery rhyme "sticks and stones can break my bones, but names can never hurt me". She may have gotten the idea to fit that in from the old rhyme, or maybe she just thought it was a nice fit in writing the song.

'Today Is Your Day' Single: Review

6/19/2011

Victoria Meng

“Today Is Your Day,” Shania Twain’s most recent single, is uplifting despite its by-the-book lyrics.

As pop music reviewer Todd in the Shadows once said in his review of Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” the biggest problem with uplifting power ballads is that most of them speak in generalities and sound insincere. “Today Is Your Day” is no exception.

“You got what it takes,” Shania sings…whoever you are. “I know that you can, then you will”…can and will do what, exactly? Stale fortune-cookie clichés like “today is your day to begin” and “part of the fun is the climb” don’t usually help anyone, and they just make this song sound even more generic than it actually is.

Basically, the lyrics of this song are trying to convince you that you’re unique and capable, but the song is also applying the same lines to everyone else regardless of who they are; therefore, it doesn’t sound sincere. It’s like that scene in Monty Python and the Life of Brian, where Brian Blessed tells a crowd, “You’re all individuals!” so almost everyone in the crowd starts shouting, “Yes! We’re all individuals!” at exactly the same time.

“Today Is Your Day” might be a “comfort” song, but it’s blatantly a commercial, marketable comfort song. Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, and the Grateful Dead are just a few examples of artists who’ve written power ballads with far more personal and/or creative lines.

Still, a nice tune can’t hurt. If “Today Is Your Day” has sub-par lyrics, at least the music sounds pleasant. Soft-piano tunes with softer guitar music combine with Shania’s gentle vocals to create a very soothing song.

In other words, the extent to which you enjoy this song will depend on how well you can stomach condescending lyrics.

Everybody's got an opinion that's for sure. We know everyone is not going to like the song, that's life. Shania's not trying to set the world on fire with this song, or win a grammy, although that would be nice. No, she has taken us through this journey with her to find herself to put it bluntly. As she took us through world of Why Not, she kept stumbling along with this little melody. In the beginning it sounded like not too much of anything, but as we saw each week it got a little better because she was getting better until it developed into it's current state. To Ms. Victoria Meng let me just say that unless you've been there and done what Eilleen Twain has done and experienced in her life, then you really don't know which I guess means that maybe you speak in "generalities" as well.

Shania, back on the charts

http://www.billboard.com/column/cha...005242272.story

On June 2, Twain received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. At a June 8 press conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, she announced plans to headline Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas with "Still the One," set to open Dec. 1, 2012, and run for two years.

While Twain has yet to formalize plans for her next studio album, her track record at the format and pop culture standing are making for a warm welcome at radio in her return with "Today."

Despite Twain's sparse recent output, her plentiful catalog has allowed her to remain a force on country radio.

"Even after a long absence, I am still asked about her quite often," says WGTY (Great Country 107.7)/York, Penn., operations manager Scott Donato. The station spun "Today" 19 times in the June 13-19 tracking week, the most among all Country Songs panelists.

"With many of our listeners glued to her television series, and her book sales taking off, she is still very much relevant in 2011."

"Shania is a superstar, not just among country fans, but music fans in general," says KMPS (94.1)/Seattle program director Becky Brenner. The station played "Today" 12 times last week.

"Her story is one that people can relate to and want to hear more about. She is not afraid to share her journey so that others can be inspired to pursue their dreams. I think that makes people want to support her even more."

While Twain made most of her trips up Country Songs with such uptempo fare as "Any Man of Mine," "That Don't Impress Me Much," and "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!," her new single, released to radio and digital retailers June 12, is a ballad, which Twain wrote (and co-produced with David Foster and Nathan Chapman).

"The song is different for her, and we've received a range of opinions on it, mostly positive, with some negatives sprinkled in," says Donato.

"Even so, most of the listeners who responded negatively are still looking forward to hearing more new material from her. The vast majority are simply excited to hear her back on the radio.

"Only time will tell if the music matches the anticipation," Donato muses. "We'll know much better in coming weeks if this song is truly something this market wants to hear.

"Just because it's somewhat of a curveball on first listen doesn't worry me too much. She's Shania Twain, for garsh sakes, and she's omnipresent right now.

"If this new music does break through, I'll be as happy as anyone, both as a fan and for the format."

-Chris
