Music Challenge, Day 16: A Song That You Used To Love But Now Hate

I just realized, I've been dragging out this music challenge since April. Whoa dude! Oh well, it keeps me occupied...

So, a song I used to love, but now hate. Well, truly, it's hard for me to hate a song I once loved. I am loyal, and once I love something, I love it forever. Yep. This even works for such songs as "Wannabe," from Spice Girls, or "Tearin' Up My Heart," from *NSYNC.

Yes, I am woman enough to admit those two loves. So stop judging me.

Buuuuuuuuuuuut, if I have to pick one song, here it is:

My little 6th grader brain thought this song was oh-so-fantastic and clever. I would crank this on my boom box, sitting on my inflatable chair (high class) in my beach-themed room, because I felt like Alanis understood me.

As I've gotten older and a tad wiser, one of my pet peeves has been the misunderstanding of the meaning of irony. I might explode if I hear one more person say, "I ran into Julie at the party! Isn't that ironic?"

No, no. Actually it's not.

And Alanis, you most certainly did not help by putting out this disaster of a song. I don't hate it, but I don't love it anymore...and well, it is kind of annoying.

The Challenge so far:

day 08 - a song that you know all the words to


  1. this video is ridiculous. but i will admit whenever i sing this song during rockband, i ALWAYS freak out like the alanis in the green sweater. always.
    also, do you think those were supposed to be her children or multiple personalities? this is one of the strangest videos i've seen. aaaand her lip syncing was awful.
    hahahaha. thank you for this though. it was great.

  2. I think I'm gonna go with the multiple personalities theory...

  3. Good choice. I can't say I love this song anymore either. BUT, "Tearin' up my heart?" It's still awesome.

  4. hahahaha :) Molly, you understand my heart!

  5. Wait, is there 'a song that you used to hate and still hate' category? ;) I would say, good choice! Ha.

    Okay, let me get my Barry on: Here's the thing. I just made a post special for today. My special Sunday evening for *you* ... special.

  6. Thanks Barry...next are you going to tell me I'm wearing a Cosby sweater?

  7. Ha ha, I used to love this song too! I find her really whiney now too!

  8. there actually is some arguable irony here:


    But yes, I get the point. :)

  9. Thank you, thank you! I have been trying to convince the people around me for years that the situations described in this song are NOT ironic - just unfortunate.

    Finally, someone who understands: the ironic thing is that the song about irony is NOT ironic.


  10. D--you're my soul sister :)
