4 Years Ago Alanis Morissette Performed An Updated Version Of “Ironic” To Reflect Modern Problems And Its Hilarious

Alanis Morissette’s 1995 song “Ironic” was on top of the charts in many countries. Talking about Norway , Australia , Canada and the U.S.A. . Twenty years later, Morissette updated her song with the help of “The Late Late Show” host James Corden to reflect modern problems, that we face every day: social networks ,media , Netflix and so.

It would have been even a bigger hit if the song would be ironic. As in fact it was saying everything on the point,there was no irony – it was talking about actual problems.

This song is not “Ironic” anymore:


An old friend sends you a Facebook request
You only find out they’re racist after you accept
There’s free office cake on the first day of your diet
It’s like they announce a new iPhone the day after you buy it
And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
It’s like swiping left on your future soulmate
It’s a Snapchat that you wish you had saved
It’s a funny tweet that nobody faves
And who would’ve thought it figures

It’s a traffic jam when you try to use Waze

A no-smoking sign when you brought your vape
It’s 10,000 male late-night hosts when all you want is just one woman, seriously!
It’s singing the duet of your dreams, and then Alanis Morissette shouting at you
And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
A little too ironic, and yeah I really do think

It’s like you’re first class on a Southwest plane

Then you realize that every seat is the same
It’s like Amazon but your package never came
And who would’ve thought it figures

It’s like Netflix but you own DVDs

It’s a free ride but your Uber’s down the street
It’s singing “Ironic,” but there are no ironies
And who would’ve thought it figures
