IO: Irony

As much as I hate radio, annoying commercials, radio overplay ruining perfectly good songs etc. etc., I simply cannot get enough of this...

I'd sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio
(Radio)

You gave them all those old time stars
Through wars of worlds -- invaded by Mars
You made 'em laugh -- you made 'em cry
You made us feel like we could fly

So don't become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don't know or just don't care
And just complain when you're not there
You had your time, you had the power
You've yet to have your finest hour
(Radio)

All we hear is Radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is Radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what's new?
Radio, someone still loves you!


Fist pumping goodness!

Maybe this is more a B&C thread.

It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife.

^^ Really? ...I always pictured it more like meeting the man of my dreams, and then meeting his beautiful wife, myself.

Isn't it ironic that Alanis' song is full of things that aren't ironic, but just really big bummers?

has she had crappy things happen to her? If so, you would have to admit that it's pretty ironic...
