    Gah. The worst song of Martina’s career was unfortunately her most successful one.

      I don’t think it was the worst, but it certainly was one of her worst. If you look back at this period (late 1999) I think we can see the beginnings of musical trend that we’re still seeing today.

        I do agree that it maybe wasn’t her worst based purely on quality, but I don’t think there’s a song in her catalog that I enjoy less than it.

    I probably enjoy have of her catalog less than this song. It’s in the middle bottom for me. I like the Alabama song a lot.

    On a more positive note, the Tammy song is absolutely brilliant.
