"Things That Never Cross a Man's Mind" is an up-tempo song, featuring electric guitar and piano in the production. The song's female narrator playfully describes the differences between men and women by stating things that the average woman thinks of on a regular basis, "that never cross[es] a man's mind." Ironically, the song was written by three men.

It's a clever lyric with a catchy melody, and Pickler's performance is absolute perfection. She has personality to spare, and this lighthearted single is tailor-made for country radio."[1]
