Alanis Morissette topped the charts in 1995 with her hit song “Ironic.” But what would the classic song be like if it were written today? Luckily for us, Alanis performed a modern version of her hit so we can know what exactly is “Ironic” about 2015. It all happened on The Late Late Show With James Corden when the host performed with the 90’s superstar to the delight of the nostalgic crowd.
The new version contains verses such “An old friend sends you a Facebook request / and 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.” Which version do you like better?
