Christ Almighty, do I hate the song, "Ironic." Do you suppose the REAL irony in that song is that Alanis' examples of irony are actually NOT ironic? Could it be the most ironic song of all time for exactly that reason?

I find "Ironic" centers my chi and gives me weighty life lessons to consider whenever I'm faced with a problem - can "it" really be like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife? Or can "it" be like a black fly in your chardonnay? Deep and profound thoughts, verily I say unto you ...

Christ Almighty, was I annoyed with the furor over whether or not the song "Ironic" was definitionally accurate. God forbid we should start disecting the grammar of Bob Dylan. It's a SONG. And a catchy one with (sort-of) intelligent lyrics at that, which is more than you could say for 99% of the shitte coming out of the radio at the time. I stand behind Jagged Little Pill as a fun, solid (albeit over played) album.

And speaking of female rock artists, I'm going on record right now and say that Patti Smith sucks ass. I'll pit Jagged Little Pill up against that overrated Horses crap any day and I'll say that to my grave.

1. Booker T. & the MGs, "Something"
2. Woody Guthrie, "It Takes a Married Man to Sing a Worried Song"
3. Big Star, "Thank You Friends"
4. The Equals, "Let's Go to the Moon"
5. John Trudee - "A Blind Man's Penis"
6. Bob Marley & the Wailers, "So Much Trouble In the World"
7. The Small Faces, "My Mind's Eye"
8. Of Montreal, "Oslo In the Summertime"
9. Mississippi Fred McDowell, "Jesus Is on the Mainline"
10. Badly Drawn Boy, "Pissing In the Wind"

Wow, turtle... I hit a nerve.

I don't think songs need to be excused from making sense because they're songs. I like every song on "Jagged Little Pill" with the exception of that stupid piece of shit ditty.

If all songs are supposed to make sense, will someone please explain what "I Dig a Pony" is all about?

C'mon, an old hippie like you don't "dig" a pony?

I just thought Lennon wanted to fuck a horse.

Jesus, I love the Hollies so very, very much. Esp. "Bus Stop."

Hey Chase, have you ever listened to the Nuggets comps? If not, email me and I'll burn copies of all 4 CDs for you.

 
At 10:41 PM, Blogger Chase McInerney said...

Brit - Yep, I love "Bus Stop" bestest of all (with "Dear Eloise," "Look Out Any Window" and "Carrie Anne" not that far behind).

I appreciate the offer about burning the Nuggets comp, but I've got 'em.

The Standells -- greatest of 'em all.

Ohh. Carrie Anne. I forgot that one...

Damn. Whay wasn't I born in 1950 instead of 1980?
