Alanis Morissette Revamps "Ironic" With Modern-Day Twist

Pin It
Typically, I'm of the mindset that classic records need to be left alone. No crazy remixes, covers or obvious samples should be allowed to taint such musical perfection. But in the case of Alanis Morissette's updated cover of "Ironic," the revamped song shows me that a song that I routinely wail-er, sing in the shower like it just dropped yesterday actually benefits from some timely touch-ups.

During a recent appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the Jagged Little Pill singer performed a hilariously quirky rendition of "Ironic," filling in the old lyrics with some modern-day struggles new fans can better relate to.

For instance, instead of singing "A traffic jam when you're already late/A no smoking sign on your cigarette break," Alanis added some humor and brings the song into this century (ZOMG, has it been that long?!) as she sings, "It's a traffic jam when you tried to use Waze/A no smoking sign when you brought your vape."

LOLZ. Too funny, Alanis. This rendition is accurate and insanely hilarious, but we're totally not laughing at how old this makes us feel.
