from TODAY IS YOUR DAY (single)

written by Shania Twain

Shania Twain is one of the most popular country/pop singers/songwriters ever. In the past fifteen years, this Canadian-born songbird has topped the charts with multi-platinum smash albums and wildly-popular hit singles like “From This Moment On,” “You’re Still The One,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and “Man! I Feel Like A Woman.”

Her noteworthy talent was fueled by the connection with her former husband and super-producer, John “Mutt” Lange, who gave her music a perfect mainstream rock spin to attract worldwide audiences and radio airplay. Recently, after the end of her marriage and a long break from recording, Twain starred on her own TV Show entitled “Why Not? With Shania Twain.” Among the various stuff included on the show was the recording process of a comeback song, “Today Is Your Day,” produced by David Foster. Foster, given his amazing track record and unprecedented career, was the obvious choice to support Twain on her first new single in over six years and her first song in several years not produced by “Mutt” Lange. “Today Is Your Day” was written by the singer and has country overtones plus the acoustic feel of a delicious pop number that beautifully showcases Twain’s beautiful voice. Foster’s production is the usual state-of-the-art affair while the arrangement is catchy and radio-friendly. The song immediately appeared on Billboard’s Hot 100 at #66 and also made the Top 40 on the Hot Country Songs chart.

Lyrics

You got what it takes you can win,
Today is your day to begin.
So don’t give up here, don’t you quit.
The moment is now, this is it
Because today is your day
And nothing can stand in your way
And today is your da
And everything’s goin’ your way
Oh today
Today
Today
Today
When somebody throws sticks and stones
All they can break are your bones
Cause life’s gonna kick around
And kick you again when your down

Because today is your day
And nothing can stand in your way
I said today is your day
And everything’s goin’ your way
Yeah today
Today
Today
Today

Just take one step at a time
Oh I promise that you will be fine
Today
Today
Today
Today
I say today
Today
