Even tho it's not really Alanis, I always crack up when I see that parody of her in the laundromat called "Wash Me."  But that aside, I've always liked "Thank You."  I like the melody and the message inside it.  Hope you're WELL, CasSEL!  :-)

This article nicely summarizes my thoughts about Alanis' "Ironic"

"Its like rain on your wedding day"

maybe irony is "thinking" its going to rain - setting up tarps ect and including wet weather protection in part of the overall wedding plans (a part of)

and, also, understanding, all the time, what rain actually signifies.

----- and then it doesn't rain. on the wedding day.

the person being ironic would be the setter upper of the tarps - given what "weddings" actually signify.


inuki, is that the story? And if it is then please explain it better than I can cos fucked if i know what irony means.

irony isnt sarcasm, either. i think the only people that truely understand it, in a literary sense, is the brits

and maybe because they base their humour around it.
