1. Alanis Morissette had a big hit in 1996 with her song "Ironic". My daughter's Middle school teacher who was a big music fan, played the class the song to teach them about irony. Ironically, it is disputed whether everything mentioned in her song was indeed, ironic. The song, it appears, was actually about coincidences. Comedian Ed Byrne performed a skit in which he jokingly attacked the song for its lack of ironies: "The only ironic thing about that song is it's called 'Ironic' and it's written by a woman who doesn't know what irony is. That's quite ironic." Did you like the song, and did you also find it ironic that it really was not about irony?

2. More than 20 years later, Morissette updates her song with the help of "The Late Late Show" host James Corden to reflect modern problems, including Facebook, vaping, Netflix, and Southwest flights. She even made fun of her original song singing, "It's singing 'Ironic,' but there are no ironies / And who would've thought it figures?" Do you like this version of the song?
