Jagged Little Pill

Once a week I post about something I’m loving (tv, movies, books, art, photos, romances, authors, or anything else) that I’ve seen or read about recently. So here’s this week’s For the love of …


Even after all these years, I’m still loving Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill. I listened to it while writing last week (hadn’t listened to it in a year or two). Sometimes I need silence when I work. Sometimes I like the background noise and little bits of familiar lyrics that encourage my creativity. And when I heard the creepy, stalkerish song at the end of the disc, it reminded me how much I loved this CD.

“I took off my clothes
Put on your robe
I went through your drawers
And found your cologne
I went down to the den
I found your CDs
And I played your Joni
And I shouldn’t stay long, you might be home soon
I shouldn’t stay long
Would you forgive me love
If I danced in your shower
Would you forgive me love
If I laid in your bed
Would you forgive me love
If I stay all afternoon”

I’m thinking there’s some inspiration for a short story there. I’ll have to think it over.

What about you? Anyone else still a fan of Morissette’s work? Comment or send me an email. I’d love to hear from you.
