JAGGED LITTLE PILL. 1995. ALANIS MORISSETTE. HISTORIA DE UN ÁLBUM + Videos Y Letras: YOU OUGHTA KNOW + ALL I REALLY WANT + HAND IN MY POCKET + IRONIC.

Jagged Little Pill es el tercer disco de Alanis Morissette, el primero como adulta; un disco que desde el primer momento impresionó, y detrás del que estaba Madonna y su recién estrenado sello Maverick.Alanis no disfraza su rabia, muestra su ira tal y como la siente, con unas letras directas y emocionantes; el rock agresivo de este disco la convirtieron en la referencia del rock alternativo femenino de mediados de los 90.
El disco contiene temas sensacionales, sobre todo You Oughta Know e Ironic, y otros muy buenos como Hand In My Pocket y You Learn. El disco mantuvo a Alanis en la carretera durante una gira de 18 meses por todo el mundo, en una serie de conciertos que comenzó en pequeñas salas en 1995 y terminó en 1996 en grandes estadios.
Las canciones del disco son historias que hablan de una mujer joven decidida a abrirse un camino propio, a inventarse a sí misma dejando atrás la educación de la infancia, a los amantes manipuladores, a los insulsos compañeros de profesión, dejando atrás incluso su propia inseguridad...
You oughta know está dedicada a un ex-novio, y en ella muestra su rabia por el compartamiento de su ex, que rápidamente la olvidó y se fue con otra. "Sabe ella que me dijiste que me abrazarias hasta que murieras? pues todavia estas vivo".
Hand in my pocket es un tema optimista en el que habla de sus contrastes, de los distintos estados de ánimo en los que se encuentra a lo largo del día.
You learn contiene un buen estribillo y una letra un tanto filosofica. Habla de la vida, sus obstáculos de lo que hay que aprender para no volver a meter la pata. "Ries y aprendes, rezas y aprendes, vives y aprendes...".
Ironic es el tema más recordado del álbum, una especie de ley de Murphy. "Es como conocer al hombre de tu vida y luego conocer a su encantadora mujer". Toda una ironía no? 
Head Over Feet es una canción tranquila con cambios de ritmo en el que hay otro solo de armónica.
En 1996 el disco fue premiado con cuatro premios Gramy: Mejor álbum, Mejor álbum de rock, Mejor interpretación femenina de rock y Mejor canción de rock por You oughta know, y se convierte merecidamente en uno de los discos "debut" más vendedores de la historia de la música.

YOU OUGHTA KNOW

I want you to know
That I'm happy for you
I wish nothing but
The best for you both


An older version of me
Is she perverted like me?
Would she go down on you in a theatre?
Does she speak eloquently?
And would she have your baby?
I'm sure she'd make a really excellent mother


'Cause the love that you gave that we made
Wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you'd hold me
Until you died, 'til you died
But you're still alive

Chorus:
And I'm here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It's not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bare that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know


You seem very well
Things look peaceful
I'm not quite as well
I thought you should know


Did you forget about me
Mister Duplicity
I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
It was a slap in the face
How quickly I was replaced
And are you thinking of me when you fuck her?


'Cause the love that you gave that we made
Wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you'd hold me
Until you died, 'til you died
But you're still alive


(Chorus)

'Cause the joke that you laid in the bed that was me
And I'm not gonna fade as soon as you close your eyes, and you know it
And every time I scratch my nails down someone elses back
I hope you feel it
Well can you feel it?

(Chorus 2x)

    

VIDEO ORIGINAL TEMA: ALL I REALY WANT. ALANIS MORISSETTE

ALL I REALLY WANT

Do I stress you out
My sweater is on backwards and inside out
and you say, how appropriate.
I don't want to dissect everything today
I don't mean to pick you apart you see
But I can't help it
There I go jumping before the gunshot has gone off
Slap me with a splintered ruler
And it would knock me to the floor if I wasn't there already
If only I could hunt the hunter


And all I really want is some patience
A way to calm the angry voice
And all I really want is deliverance

Do I wear you out
You must wonder why I'm relentless and all strung out
I'm consumed by the chill of solitary
I'm like Estella
I like to reel it in and spit it out
I'm frustrated by your apathy
And I am frightened by the corrupted ways of this land
If only I could meet the Maker
And I'm fascinated by the spiritual man
I am humbled by his humble nature


What I wouldn't give to find a soulmate
Someone else to catch this drift
And what I wouldn't give to meet a kindred

Enough about me, let's talk about you for a minute
Enough about you, let's talk about life for a while
The conflicts, the craziness and the sound of pretenses
Falling all around... all around


Why are you so petrified of silence
Here can you handle this!?
Did yo uthink about your bills, your ex, your deadlines
Or when you think you're gonna die
Or did you olong for hte next distraction
And all I need now is intellectual intercourse
A sould to dig the hole much deeper
And I have no cencept of time other an it is flying
If only I could kill the killer


All I really want is some peace man
A place to find a common ground
And all I really want is a wavelength
All I really want is some comfort
A way to get my hands untied
And all I really want is some justice

 

 VIDEO ORIGINAL TEMA: HAND IN MY POCKET. ALANIS MORISSETTE.       

HAND IN MY POCKET

I'm broke but I'm happy
I'm poor but I'm kind
I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah
I'm high but I'm grounded
I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby
What it all comes down to
Is that everthing's gonna be fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five


I feel drunk but I'm sober
I'm young and I'm underpaid
I'm tired but I'm working, yeah
I care but I'm restless
I'm here but I'm really gone
I'm wrong and I'm sorry baby

What it all comes down to
is that everything's gonna be quite alright
cause I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other is flicking a cigarette
What is all comes down to
Is that I haven't got it all figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving the peace sign

I'm free but I'm focused
I'm green but I'm wise
I'm hard but I'm friendly baby
I'm sad but I'm laughing
I'm brave but I'm chicken $I'm sick but I'm pretty baby

What it all boils down to
Is that no one's really got it figured out just yet
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is playing the piano
What it all comes down to my friends
Is that everything's just fine fine fine
I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is hailing a taxi cab...

 

VIDEO ORGINAL TEMA: IRONIC. ALANIS MORISSETTE.

IRONIC

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic... don't you think

Chorus:
It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
Well, isn't this nice. And Isn't this ironic ... don't you think?

Repeat Chorus


Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's ok and everythings going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think evertyhing's gone wrong and everthing blows up
In your face


A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
and then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic... don't you think
A little too ironic.. and yeah I really do think...

Repeat Chorus

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
And life has a funny way of helping you out
helping you out
