Jagged Little Pill

Think Alanis morissette is an amazing songwriter and singer...have always liked her music..esp the songs from her first album Jagged little Pill

Jagged Little Pill spawned six hit singles: "You Oughta Know", "Hand in My Pocket", "All I Really Want", "Ironic", "You Learn" and "Head over Feet". Selling 14.5 million copies by 1999 in the United States, it is the second best-selling album by a female solo artistIt spent twelve non-consecutive weeks at number one on the Billboard 200 and sixty-nine consecutive weeks in the top ten. This makes it one of only three albums to remain in the top ten of the Billboard 200 for one full year. The album has sold thirty million copies worldwide..(source: wikipedia)

IRONIC has been my personal favorite for sometime now..think the lyrics are way too good.

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
Its a black fly in your chardonnay
Its a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isnt it ironic... dont you think?

Chorus:Its like rain on your wedding day
Its a free ride when youve already paid
Its the good advice that you just didnt take
Who wouldve thought... it figures

Mr. play it safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
Well isnt this nice...
And isnt it ironic... dont you think?

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everythings okay and everythings going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everythings gone wrong and everything blows up

In your faceA traffic jam when youre already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
Its like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
Its meeting the man of my dreamsAnd then meeting his beautiful wife
And isnt it ironic... dont you think?
A little too ironic... and yeah I really do think...

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out
