Top 5 Most Underrated Shania Songs
5. “Black Eyes, Blue Tears”
This song appears on Shania’s insanely popular Come On Over album. It highlights the freedom one can feel after leaving an abusive relationship. It is the freedom of choosing not to live that way anymore or putting up with the abuse. Listen here.
“If elephants could fly, I’d be a little more optimistic. But I don’t see that happening anytime soon.” This song is about feeling pessimistic after a break-up. Asking the question, “When will I feel okay again?”, only after these impossible scenarios come true. Highlighting everything from money growing on trees to the Beatles being reunited with John and going out on tour. A perfect break-up song.
3. “Leaving Is The Only Way Out”
This country heartbreaker speaks to the feeling of being neglected in a relationship. A partner who only pays attention to you when you are crying. That’s when you know it is time to leave. Listen here.
2. “Thank You Baby!”
This upbeat number thanks a new lover for showing up and rescuing them from the dating world. Exclaiming that she has finally found “the one” she no longer needs to waste her time with anyone else. Listen here.
“Whatever You Do! Don’t!”
This song, from Come On Over, is about trying to resist someone and not succeeding. Simply telling them to stop driving you crazy but in a good way.
