Did you grow up in the 90s?

If you answered “yes!” then Alanis Morissette’s ‘Jagged Little Pill’ album was almost definitely a significant part of your musical upbringing. And her 1995 single ‘Ironic’  was one of its most iconic songs. Not only did it garner two Grammy nominations and win six MTV video music awards, but it was potentially responsible for destroying the very definition of irony, due to the fact that her song was actually about coincidence.

But hey, nobody’s perfect.

More than two decades later, Alanis popped by “The Late Late Show” and joined James Corden for a very millennial version of the song. She even addressed the biggest problem with ‘Ironic,’: “It’s singing ‘Ironic,’ but there are no ironies / And who would’ve thought it figures?”

Bravo Alanis.

Bravo.

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 soulmate
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
