Heard this familiar song on the radio yesterday and got hooked to it immediately. Jot down the title and youtubed it today.
8/10 The song starts off slow and continues to a high pitched chorus. The chorus is catchy, one which many will sing along but I believe not easy to sing to tune. The song is simple and clear to its title- it presents several situations which are termed and considered ironic.
- Alanis Morissette is a Canadian-American singer.
- The song received critiques and parodies regarding the examples in the lyrics which are not deemed truly ironic. The song was parodied by Allison Rheaume and Weird Al Yankovic.
- Morissette changed the lyrics of Ironic to denote her support for same-sex marriage.
- For 6 weeks, the track topped the Canadian RPM Top Singles. The song reached top 5 in Australia, New Zealand and Norway and number 4 in United States.
