What I know is that this song "Offer" speaks to me in a spiritual, religious, searching and hurting place. The song was a true offer of Alanis's heart in that she gave it to the Sabera Foundation for the album. Perhaps you have to have been there, to those places in your life, on the planet, in your heart, with those children, with that pain, with that profound sublimeness. Her questioning of her path; her discomfort with her comfort when held up to the light of her prosperity and her global consciousness; her awareness that the heart that does not bleed via its five senses is perhaps a wounded, scabbed over heart, a heart that has chosen to sit out a few rounds, a heart which may even deserve to sit out a few rounds with its spent, blue, unable, disabled by her generous heart. Life as an oyster, life extraordinaire, sense of duty, and yes, Virginia, a third world country. It all comes out in the song, at least as I hear it. It invokes so much in me. Jackson Brown "running on empty", Bruce Cockburn "living in a dangerous time", lilacs blooming, baby Iraqi girl with you hand blown off by a daisy yellow, red-white-blue bomblet, and who, who am I to be so blue. Sing to my soul, Alanis. (And then imagine in this album you have just come from Sting singing "Let your Soul be your Pilot" to "Ave Maria" to Rosario's "Que Bonito" and on to Bob Dylan singing "Knockin on Heaven's Door" and Antonio Banderas singing John Lennon's "Imagine" most of these with these sweet voiced Indian little girls, angels...Y Dame la Mano…oyeme dios mio, que nos llevan a un lugar donde hay compasion y amor y si no, dioscito, favor de que por lo menos no sufran mas los bebes, los ninos, asi poder superior, por lo menos que los quite del altar de los lobos viciosos de poder, avaricia y injusticia)
Why do Alanis fans write these pompous mini-novels to justify her success? She is a fluke. Fortunately the over-play of her 1st album has put her into somewhat obscurity.
Nothing more dangerous than commenting on an email like this. But the thought of Antonio Banderas singing a Lennon song? Priceless.. The thought of buying into the idea that Alanis Morrisette can retain and gain more fans (and $) by allowing us to feel her newly found guilt? Sorry... aint buying it... Besides... what's it cost?.... a soul?

Tambien en el sitio web www.fundacionsabera.com para aquellos que hablan espanol. Gracias.
:frustrated:
oh my god, did she just say \"how did i ignore a third world country\"? wow. it\'s good she asked, that third world country has been sitting on her front doorstep for weeks now.... :roll:
Alanis was so much better when she was angry...
This sounds so much better than the songs they play by her on the radio. I like this.
Would someone PLEASE put her out of her misery? :evil: And out of mine? :frustrated: She just seems to get more simplistically self-conscious, more indulgently bourgois in her alleged thoughtfulness, and more trite with each new bit of work.

Oh yeah, I'd call her special!! Good though? In what sence of the word? Certainly not her vocals. :rolleyes:
