James Corden And Alanis Morissette Sing An Updated Version of ‘Ironic’

Alanis Morissette’s 1995 song “Ironic” was a huge success. It made to the top five songs in Canada,  Australia, the U.S., and Norway.

It received two nominations for Grammys and the video featuring Morissette singing the song in a large automobile was nominated for six MTV video music awards.

20 years later, Morissette decided to update the song with the help of “The Late Late Show” host James Corden. The song reflects modern problems, including vaping, Facebook, Netflix, and Southwest flights.

She also made fun of her original song singing, “It’s singing ‘Ironic,’ but there are no ironies / And who would’ve thought it figures?”

The rest of the song is something like this:

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
