Best Alanis Morissette Song Off of ‘Jagged Little Pill’ – Readers Poll
Happy birthday, Alanis Morissette! We’re celebrating the Canadian songstress turning 38 today, June 1, 2012. While her career has been a vast one with many album releases, there is no LP that really stands out as much as her angsty 1995 masterpiece ‘Jagged Little Pill.’ In honor of Ms. Morissette, who has a new album due out in the summer of 2012, we want you to vote on your favorite track off of ‘Jagged Little Pill.’
All six of the singles Morissette released off of ‘Jagged Little Pill’ charted high, and even though none of them went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, they’ve become classics and favorites among fans. The angry breakup anthem ‘You Oughta Know’ was the first ‘Jagged Little Pill’ single to impact airwaves, and it was with this song that listeners got their first taste of Morissette’s infamously sharp tongue.
‘Hand in My Pocket’ followed, and her smash hit ‘Ironic’ followed. Both songs speak to conflicting thoughts that everyone encounters and trying to make the best of a bad situation. ‘You Learn’ is next, which is about learning from your mistakes and refusing to be knocked down by life, and the harmonica-heavy love song ‘Head Over Feet’ followed. Finally, the super ’90s-sounding ‘All I Really Want’ was her last single off of the album, and it’s about finding each other’s shortcomings in a relationship and trying to find peace of mind.
So, Alanis fans, which ‘Jagged Little Pill’ track (of the six singles she released) is your favorite? Vote!
