Like anyone would be
I am flattered by your fascination with me
Like any hot blooded woman
I have simply wanted an object to crave
But you, you're not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight

Must be strangely exciting
To watch the stoic squirm
Must be somewhat heartening
To watch shepherd need shepherd
But you, you're not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight

Like any uncharted territory
I must seem greatly intriguing
You speak of my love like
You have experienced love like mine before
But this is not allowed
You're uninvited
An unfortunate slight

I don't think you unworthy
I need a moment to deliberate

Always a good choice is Alanis. The voice talks directly to me and has always done! :clap:
I prefer the studio version. This song means a lot for me... I used to be that squirming worm but she needed a moment to deliberate. A loooooooooong moment! THX, RP!

Memories, memories, memories. A night and a man and a thunderstorm and a wrecking ball to the conscience. Absolutely chilling. This song will always stop me in my tracks. But I DO prefer the studio version; those parallel thirds are wicked good.
:yes:

Hah! I forgot about that! But she wasn't completely silent, now was she? Remember the Primal Scream at the end? I've been curious about why she didn't have a speaking part -- she is actually pretty relaxed before the camera and in person, also as a matter of fact. Guess it was something that had to do with G-d never speaking to mortals or something. Cheers! Dave

Heh! She's Canadian, OK, Eh? Her Pitch is perfect for the particular chords she is singing. She is producing atonal harmony using doppler shift interfaces. Eh?

"Ok, class, in today's lesson we're going to review pitch. Ms. Morissette, you're still failing...why don't you go first?" No doubt she also failed the enunciation course as this and many other tunes demonstrate. Quite poor. They should have left the microphone unplugged as well.

Where are all the whiners who complain about singers "voices" Ex. Tom Waits, Richard Thompson, David Byrne. when we need them?

I'd prefer the studio version, but this is alright. It doesn't seem to fit with the regular RP playlist though. Why is that?

I always have found her highly overated IMO. She just screechs when she sings and not in a good way.
i simply wanted an object to crave. great line.

I gave it a 5 - Someone had to do it, seems like she's a Love her or Hate her artist. I mildly dislike her. How's that?
...i never cared for her, myself, although i quite enjoy the studio version of this track...
I like this song, especially the electric original, but it drives me nuts how many bad lyrical scans there are - "an un-for-TUUUUUUUUUUUU-nate slight"

Ok, knock me off my chair finally some Alanis Morissette....play more, maybe her early stuff which is IMO much better.
This IS early... It was the first single she had after Jagged Little Pill, between that and her second album... Well, the version from City of Angels was anyway. And I think I like that version better.

I'm very happy to hear Alanis on RP, heard My Humps on LRC there a few times an' thought, is it possible that Alanis will hit Mains, well, here she is :high-five: On Ya RP!
allright now, step away from the microphone...
Almost as good as her version of My Humps (click here) on YouTube if you haven't seen it check it out. Tres funny. You could play it here Bill. As it is, Uninvited gets a 6 from me. Alanis is growing on me... or at least some of her songs are.

No one does bitter-girl music better!
We need to get "My Humps" on the playlist! My respect for Alanis went way up after that one.
...i love the haunting lilt.. yes disturbing undertone of this....then way it builds, drops off then forces its way back... :boohoo: i think i need coffee... :good-vibes:
Great version, gotta give her some credit here. Shades of Sinead in her voice....
The key word being uninvited. blech
Like this one more than most of her stuff.
