Alanis Morissette finally good for something

Ashley found this online the other day and it cracked me the fuck up: Alanis Morissette covering the Black Eyed Peas’s “My Humps.” Ordinarily I’m not much a fan of Alanis (I consider contributing to the City of Angels and Queen of the Damned soundtracks an unforgivable sin), but she’s done well with this one. Her cover of “My Humps” demonstrates how incredibly stupid the original song was, and also how irritating slow, melancholy covers of up-tempo songs are. Plus, it’s funny as hell. Well played, Ms. Morissette.

No love for Alanis Morissette? That's too bad. She put out one of the finest albums of all time. Jagged Little Pill is one of my favorite albums.

I think "You Oughta Know" is an okay song, but mostly I'm either underwhelmed or outright annoyed by her. I don't find her a very good singer or writer. Is she as bad as Tori Amos? Christ, no. But I much prefer Aimee Mann, Norah Jones or early Liz Phair when it comes to singing white chicks. Or better yet, Neko Case. She's the shit.

I *love* Tori Amos. She is my kind of music.

I like Tori Amos, too. I've even met her once. And I must bear the burden of living with this....man.
