I like this song, both the red and green versions, but I actually think the (red) pop version goes best for this song, definitely has an 80's sound to it! Very fun, very Shania!, reminds me a bit of the songs that were released on various cds without Shania's permission, but only slight resemblence, the quality of songs on Up! are much better. I definitely consider this song to be retro, it's cool!:GL :Bthumb

I said it somewhere else ( I get lost a lot these days :) ) but the last 5 songs one this album are really great (Not that the others are not) This song though has that typicial Shania attitude in her song writing . Very well done.
I love the 3rd verse,

"We like to buy, we like to spend
to keep up with the latest trend
but we get no satisfaction
living like a slave to fashion
no more thinking for yourself
just get it off the shelf"
What a way to wanna be

How true is that? ;)

So far, this is the my least favorite song on the album. I don't know. it just doesn't work as well as the others.

I like the lyrics a lot...there is a strong message..I think this is one of the songs Shania was talking about, among the ones she did not share before..I am not thrilled about the music, but I like the pop version better....:)

I like this song. It does not belong to my top 5, but a solid song. Reminds us to be happy of who we are :)

The more I listen to this song, the better I like it. You know what? It reminds me of Abba, which in my book is a huge compliment. I don't mean Shania has stolen anything - just that this song has the same strengths and style as an Abba song: driving beat, same bass accompaniment, catchy melody, light-hearted viewpoint. Björn and Benny would approve!

Well, I was just surfing this afternoon. I got it from universalcountry.ca, I think. Here is the larger pic that I cropped. It depicts Shania at the CHUM interview. But now I go back to that site I can't find it....LOL

I absolutely LOVE this song!!! I was telling my friends in health class about it and they said they can't wait to hear it! I told them the CD is less than $10 and you even get TWO CDs and they're like "WHAT?! Less than $10??? I'm gonna go out and get it!" I love the beat to it and the lyrics crack me up. :D

A HYPER Shania fan,
