I like her music. I think she's a fantastic lyricist...I wish I could write lyrics even half as good as hers.

i hate her. her voice makes me want to stuff burning spikes into my ears. not to mention her songs are horrible. does she write them herself? that's got to be the problem...

I LOVE the song she did with Ryan Adams, "1974."

I HATE her new haircut.

Yes.

BTW...to anybody who may notice...this is not the same "1974" that Ryan is releasing on his new album...the song they did was quite different! Very sweet and beautiful. It can be found on bootlegs. If any Alanis fans are curious, let me know, and I'll find a way to share it with you.

I have two of Alanis's albums...Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie and Jagged Little Pill...I like them both.

I have all of Alanis' albums and love her so much. I think it may be because she's just three years older than I am, but there's a definite connection, I can relate so well to what she discusses in her music. I think she amazingly talented and so fantastic live, I've been fortunate enough to see her twice, including once in a very small venue, and it was incredible.

I loved Jagged Little Pill, but after that, I didn't see what the big deal was.

I love the song "Uninvited," but other than that her stuff leaves me cold.

I'm not anywhere as impressed with her music as I used to be five or six years ago, but I still like her. Her lyrics though often strike me as over-wordy, dry and rather awkward.

Ryan Adams also has a song called "Alanis"...he performed it a few times while on tour with her. I have at least one of the versions...might have another somewhere...

~~~~~~~

Here comes the sun
She's playing guitar
And I wanted you to want me somehow
So here comes the moon
Soft silhouette
And I wanted you to love me did you forget
Go on and ask me to dance
Go on and ask me to dance
I just might I just might for you
Alanis, rag doll marionette
Hello, can you hear me?
Hello, can you hear me?
Alanis, Alanis
So here comes the part
The part with the strings
Broken hearts laid on old wooden machines
So here comes your girl
Pretty as fuck
Her eyes, they're universes that the galaxies forgot
So go on and ask me to dance
Go on and ask me to dance
And I just might I just might for you
Alanis rag doll marionette
Hello, can you hear me?
Hello, can you hear me?
Hello, can you hear me?
Alanis, Alanis, Alanis

she's pretty good. i would agree that her lyrics sound a bit awkward at times, but she has some very good songs.

I quite like her. I still say that she has the best MTV Unplugged album by a long shot. That's the only cd of her's that I own though... I saw her live at the SLC Winter Olympics. She put on a good show.

I find it odd so many of you think she's so bad. One of the only decent artists you can still hear on the popcharts in my book. Different strokes for different folks though I guess.
