Alanis Morrissette’s Jagged Little Pill was, yet a doubt, an glorious stone manuscript – yet fans of a thespian don’t need me to tell them that it was also so most some-more than only that.
Released in 1995, it was messy, unpleasant and oh so raw. It was a manuscript we all incited to when a hearts had been broken, or a hopes had been dashed, or we were only unequivocally indignant about a world. It was a ultimate thing to sing along to in a shower.
Above all else, though, the elegant lyrics and heartless imagery lent energy to a detonate of fury that felt, somehow, singly womanlike – since it wasn’t about being difficult, or contrary, or simply ‘angry’. No, it was about being a lady in a misogynist society, creation your voice heard, and refusing to let anyone overpower you.
You can imagine, then, how vehement we were to learn that Morissette has announced a array of UK and Ireland dates as partial of her Jagged Little Pill 25th anniversary tour. Including one date next week.
