Ironic – Alanis Morissette – 1996

Video

Ironic è un brano scritto da Alanis Morissette e Glen Ballard per il terzo album della Morissette Jagged Little Pill del 1995. È stato pubblicato come quarto singolo dell’album nel 1996. È una canzone simbolo degli anni ’90.

Questo pezzo musicale è stato utilizzato il diversi film, come “Gli Stagisti” con Owen Wilson e Vince Vaughn e “White Chicks” (galline bianche). Nel primo film tratta di due quarantenni che si ritrovano disoccupati ed il pezzo musicale è il loro cavallo di battaglia. Nel secondo film, “White Chicks” racconta di due fratelli afroamericani, agenti FBI, a cui viene affidata la missione di proteggere due ereditiere, le sorelle Wilson (parodia delle sorelle Paris e Nicky Hilton), Brittany (Maitland Ward) e Tiffany (Anne Dudek) da un complotto che mira al rapimento delle due; anche qui il brano è un must delle ereditiere.

Testo

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
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 it ironic, l don’t you think
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
Well, life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything’s okay and everything’s going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face
A traffic jam when you’re already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It’s like ten thousand 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
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
Well, life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
And life has a funny way of helping you out
Helping you out.
