2. Ironic –Alanis Morissette

(Your reaction) Thank you!

This song gives me goose bumps when I listen to it. It’s about different kinds of ironic things that tend to happen in life. Many of the analogies in this song are unfortunate, and some are downright sad; but they all definitely make you think about different aspects of life. A few of the “ironic” lyrics are: “It’s a death row pardon two minutes too late,” “it’s a free ride when you’ve already paid,” “a traffic jam when you’re already late,” “a no-smoking sign on your cigarette break,” “it’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife,” and “it’s meeting the man of my dreams, and then meeting his beautiful wife.” I’m sure many of us have experienced these things, so this song is extremely relatable.
