* TheCoverChangesTheMeaning: Well, in the music video anyway: While Bobbie Gentry's Fancy was an 18-year-old lady sent by her dying mother to a dance where she uses her sexual prowess and the connections she makes to build a better life for herself, thus saving her from the vicious cycle, Reba's "Fancy Rae Baker" is sent off by her dying mother to become a songstress and actress and to use her talents to gain a better life for herself in the video.

* TheCoverChangesTheMeaning: Well, TheCoverChangesTheMeaning:
** "Cathy's Clown." The Everly Brothers original had third-party observers literally snicker at the "clown" every time Cathy approached him to play him for a fool. In Reba's cover, the protagonist is a sympathetic observer who wants to show him true love.
** "Fancy,"
in the music video anyway: video. While Bobbie Gentry's Fancy was an 18-year-old lady sent by her dying mother to a dance where she uses her sexual prowess and the connections she makes to build a better life for herself, thus saving her from the vicious cycle, Reba's "Fancy Rae Baker" is is, in the video, sent off by her dying mother to become a songstress and actress and to use her talents to gain a better life for herself in herself.
** "Ring On My Finger, Time On My Hands." Lee Greenwood's version is from a male perspective, admitting he had neglected his wife and admitting that her turning to another man was understandable. Reba's version takes it up another notch and virtually calls
the video.husband cold and distant when he is home.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: Many radio stations cut Reba's version of "Fancy" short after three verses, probably to avoid having the last verse describe that Fancy "[[DoubleEntendre charmed a king and a congressman]]" and used prostitution to gain wealth and build a Georgia mansion and a New York flat, and finally makes peace with her dead mother after 13 years. Or maybe just because the song's five freaking minutes long with said verse.

Reba has also dabbled in acting a few times, including a six-season run in the SitCom ''{{Reba}}'' and the role of Annie Oakley in the 2001 musical ''Annie Get Your Gun''. She also played Heather Gummer, Burt's wife in the first ''{{Tremors}}''. Come 2012, she's starring in ''another'' sitcom, ''Series/MalibuCountry'', with nearly the same premise as her first sitcom.

Added DiffLines:

** Also changes the meaning in the video for "Because of You," which she sang with Kelly Clarkson. The original Kelly Clarkson video is about parental neglect, while the Reba cover is about domestic violence.

* AlbumTitleDrop: Despite having a title track, ''Love Somebody'' also has "Sometimes you don't ''love somebody'' until they don't love you."you" in "Until They Don't Love You".



* LoudnessWar: The re-recording of Music/KellyClarkson's "Because of You", a duet with Reba, is just ridiculous. The guitars are so loud and compressed, especially on the bridge, where Reba's lead vocal is almost completely buried in the mix.

It almost sounds like a Music/RascalFlatts outtake.



* TruckDriversGearChange: "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" pulls off a rather unusual one, going from C Dorian on the verses to G major on the chorus. The second verse also contains a single line ("Well the Georgia patrol was makin' their rounds…") that goes up to G before returning.
