Ironic by Alanis Morissette

There were few (If any) bigger albums in the 1990s than Alanis Morissette’s juggernaut, Jagged Little Pill. Her single “Ironic” was also one of the most decorated and talked about videos from the album, having its share of Grammy appreciation and the all too sought after VMA accolades. “Ironic” found itself with heavy play and plenty of parody in its tenure.

Pres Maxson returns to discuss the music video. We tackle a lot of Jagged Little Pill, the pop alternative music scene at the time and plenty of appreciation for Alanis herself.

Due to copyright and fair use laws as well as Apple and Spotify sweeps for such things, I’m not going to roll the dice and be including a clip of the song in the episode. However, you can watch the entire video before listening right here.

The Brandon Peters Show will return Monday (11/23) to begin a 3-Day Holiday Gift Guide Series, including guests Nick Rust (Literate Gamer), Stephanie Crawford (House of a Reasonable Amount of Horrors) and Troy Brownfield (The Saturday Evening Post).
