Ironic – Alanis Morissette


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.


  1. Alanis Morissette is a Canadian-American singer.
  2. 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.
  3. Morissette changed the lyrics of Ironic to denote her support for same-sex marriage.
  4. 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.
