Laundry day...

I got the new Alanis Morissette album a week or so ago. I also have Under Rug Swept (why would you let Yoda title an angry girl album?). And I've come to the following conclusion. The songs by Alanis Morissette that I like, I really like. The one's I dislike, I REALLY dislike. And I tend to like 1-2 songs per album. Cases in point:

Jagged Little Pill: "All I Really Want" makes me dance and stuff... I really like the acoustic MTV Music awards version of "You Oughta Know" but it's really hard to find these days.
(I haven't really tried, though)

Under Rug Swept: "So Unsexy" is the only song I like... Musically I like "Hands Clean" but it SO grosses me out that it sort of ruins it for me.

So-Called Chaos: I (gasp) love the single "Everything" The rest of the album? It drives me bananas.

I also can't stand that Los Lonley Boys "Heaven" song either.

Please keep in mind, that this is a process for me, and typically once I've made a definitive statement about disliking a song, I usually wind up loving it.

I'm almost finished reading E. Annie Proulx's Accordion Crimes. It's much like The Shipping News in that I don't like it. However, 2-3 years after I read The Shipping News, I had an uncontrollable urge to read it again, and I really liked it. Maybe it's something I have to let stew for a few years?

I appear to not be able to commit to opinions. Oh well.
