Shania Twain — “Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)”
(from Come On Over [International Version]) — Don't Be Stupid (You Know I Love You) - Come On Over (International Version)

Was watching The Amazing Race last night with A — they were racing through the motherland (Russia, for you uninitiated); he was in hog heaven (particularly when it came time to correct the plentiful mispronunciations and grammatical errors which he heard throughout the hour) — and, during one of the tasks, one of the male halves of the difficult-to-differentiate twentysomething couples who are participating kept yelling at his girlfriend, “Don’t be stupid!” And every time he said it, all I could think of was this song, a smash for Twain in the fall of ’97. Like much of the rest of Twain’s output to that point, I never much cared for this song back in the day, but listening to it again just now, I’m man enough to admit that it’s catchy and completely harmless. I dare you not to be humming it under your breath to yourself for the remainder of the day.
