Well, maybe now you can think I'm at least somewhat normal since I like Alanis Morissette, though I seem to have the feeling that women like her more than guys do. I think it has something to do with them being shallow and finding her unattractive. Personally, I think that shouldn't enter into whether you like someone's music, but then again, I guess it would explain the popularity of Britney Spears.
Now what on earth could I have to say about Alanis? I'm not about to try and repeat a list of interviews, or details about personal information. There's already plenty of sites about that. Instead of all that, I'll try and come up with the songs of hers that are the most meaningful, or interesting, and advise people to at least listen to these.
The first song I'd recommend anyone listen to is "Uninvited." Since this appeared on the City of Angels sound track, I will assume that most people have heard it. If you haven't heard the song, doing so should become a priority. There's a bit to say about it, more than just that it's about discovering your love for someone, and being completly surprised by it. For one, there's a clarification on the lyrics. I have seen several lyrics sites mis-reporting. There seem to be two popular interpretations for lines 10 and 11. One of these is "Must be somewhat hard telling/To watch them burn me, shepherd." This is about what it sounded like the first time I heard it, except I had thought it was "heart tearing" Other sources report the lines as "Must be somewhat heartening/To watch shepherd meet shepherd" I'm not sure whether this last one is the true one, but I like it a lot better, because it fits better with the movie.
"Your House" the "hidden track" on Jagged Little Pill, is the next I'd recommend. I was a little surprised at first hearing it, the stalker like behavior that she explains isn't something that I'm used to thinking of women doing. It makes me wonder whether what she was doing was right, or whether it violated the other person's trust. I'd have to say it probably would, considering that the other person had left such a note out. There's a lot of other variables, so far I've been taking everyhing at face value. I still do wonder whether or not what she did was acceptable by the majority of people.
