"Poor Me" has just be released as a promo single in Australia and New Zealend. Odds are it will arrive in the U.S. and Canada tonight at midnight.

Guys, here in Brazil, Poor Me is already in the iTunes. I have just downloaded. For me so far is Shania's darkest song.

I don't understand this promotion releasing songs out of nothing, but I won't complain. Lololol

Yes I like it. But it's not love at first sight. It's different from everything we've heard from her. My favorite so far is Swinging.

Not sure if the link will work for you all.

Well on Breatavy.com they compared the beginning of that song to the Chainsmokers "Don't Let Me Down" "NOW" clears my throat but is Shania trying to copy cat someone or was she inspired? I hope she didn't copy cat but Marco does the first 20 seconds of "Poor Me" echo, copy or sound like "Don't Let Me Down"

So very different but it sounds so very good. She was right when she said her voice would be the element that ties this album all together. Everything we have heard is different from one another. At the same time, it sounds very Shania.

Just listen to the song you mentioned.

Yes they are very similar, but not identical. Since the instrument is exactly the same, we need to listen many times to identify the difference. As the music goes on it becomes 2 very different songs, but I guess there will be some buzz around...

I actually like it.....and at least we have a video to go with it...LOL!
I agree that if there was a promotional strategy from the beginning, I am not understanding it.....maybe, there has been some confusion as to what to do with this type of eclectic album

I really like it. I think Swinging and Poor Me show a lot of growth in her song writing; they are more sophisticated musically compared to much of her previous stuff.

I agree completely. So far, this is the best song from this album in my opinion. Very heartbreaking song. Focus on the lyrics from the beginning of the song all throughout it, picture in your mind the scenes she is describing, quite touching songwriting, very raw and honest song.....I really like it. Pure Shania songwriting.

Favorite lyrical part of "Poor Me": "He never told me how long, I'd be living in the dark. No one turned the light on, I fell and broke my heart."
