Alanis Morrissette... Where do we start?
This is a multi-talented woman with a lot of wisdom gained in her time on this little planet we call home. She has somehow managed to write music, earn tons of awards, act and have a child without losing her marbles. If this doesn't sound like a Superwoman, I don't know what does. Alanis uses her life experiences to create amazing songs that we
all can relate to at one point or another in our lives.
Jagged Little Pill is a shining example of the raw talent and passion that Alanis puts into each of her projects. "Ironic" is a gem that was produced from the album and it was also one of her biggest hits to date. Isn't it ironic, that this song was picked to be Unhinged? More than likely it wasn't, but this is a treat to give a nod to a woman that has done so much for world of music. "Ironic" provides us with tons of everyday situations in which things work out to be well, Ironic.
"It's a traffic jam, when your already late" - Alanis Morrisetee
Can't we all identify with moments like that? I mean how many times do we hit those moments in life where all we can do is shake our head? For some this happens more than others, but for me it used to happen when I tried to plan dates in high school(lol, not even opening that crate). The beauty of this song is that it makes you look back into your own life, so that she can again connect with her listeners. It's almost like she imprinted her consciousness into the song and when we hear it she becomes a part of us.
Creepy, I know, but Unique the same. I like knowing that the person I choose to listen to during my day is someone that is real, honest and dynamite with the words. A lot of people tend to focus on the background of a song before listening to the vocals, but here at Unhinged solid vocals are a must. If you can capture your listener's attention for 3-4 minutes to the point that they have memorized your song, then you are on your note. So if I could say something to Alanis right now I'd say, "Keep doing it" or something like "You Rock". I know it's not the deepest of words, but they are truthful.
From music to movies to television and back to music.. Alanis is an artist to truly be appreciated and I'm glad that I've had an opportunity to share her with you.
