Ironic- Alanis Morissette Decomposition

Episode Summary

This week Patrick Flynn of The Original Cast helps us decompose Alanis Morissette's 1996 hit-song "Ironic."

Episode Notes

"Ironic," was EVERYWHERE in 1996. You couldn't escape it. And it turned into Alanis Morissette's biggest hit to date. This song is challenging. Unless you're Alanis Morissette, she kinda just doesn't care. Nothing mentioned in this song is actually ironic, they just suck. But this week we take the time to slightly tweak the lyrics so that they become ironic. We also rank all of the happenings on a scale of 1- 10 based on how much they suck. Patrick tells us about the biggest fight that he has ever gotten into. Plus he spent many of his formative years lying about Nirvana and "Weird" Al.
Join us on an exploration of the most 90's song and video as we discuss the unironic story of Mr. Play-It -Safe, and why this song may actually be ironic afterall.
