Alanis Morissette Hilariously Remakes Hit Song ‘Ironic’ To Fit Odd Times (VIDEO)


The ultra-talented Late Late Night Show host James Corden and his guest Alanis Morissette sang a duet of her song Ironic, which became a humongous hit after it originally came out in 1995. The song made the top five hits in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and Norway. The two singers performed an updated version of her song with new, hysterical lyrics on Corden’s CBS show.

The original song was also nominated for two Grammys. Then Morissette’s music video went on to be nominated for not one, not two, but six MTV video music awards. There were those who thought that Ironic was about coincidences instead of irony. Of course, they were wrong. It is a powerful song.

Morissette sang the modified song with Corden, each of them wearing matching red hats complete with four long fake hair braids -each. The two of them revamped the song to relate to current problems. These included Netflix, Southwest flights, vaping, and even Facebook.

She could not even resist being ironic about her song Ironic. They sang on Corden’s show:

‘It’s singing Ironic but there are no ironies/ And who would’ve thought it figures?’

Multi-talented Corden helped Morissette rewrite her song with just the right amount of humor, and Corden’s performance on The Late Late Night Show With James Corden took it over the top:

‘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 soul mate
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.’

Humor is what takes people through the uncertainties of this chaotic political life.
