Canadian Singer-songwriter Alanis Morrissette turns 39 today. Back in 1995 you couldn’t turn the radio on or go anywhere without hearing one of the songs from her smash hit album “Jagged Little Pill.” “Jagged Little Pill” sold 33 million copies worldwide. When I think of Morrissette I always think of Hootie And The Blowfish-both groups had albums back at that time that sold like flapjacks but then they came back down to earth. I know Morrissette has continued to produce more albums since “Jagged Little Pill” 18 years ago but she has only had one other hit single.
When I do think of Morrisette which isn’t often- I remember back to that time before we bought a house, we were renting an apartment. There was a period of time when every morning we would be woke up at 5 am to the sounds of the apartment above us. The girl above was obviously going through a break up in a relationship and every morning she had “Jagged Little Pill” turned up to “11” on her stereo. Not a good memory to of Morrissette but it is what it is. Never liked the album after that.
