Canadian singer Alanis Morissette’s album Jagged Little Pill was released in June of 1995, and as soon as I heard the songs on the album, I was in love. The album covers more melancholy themes, like loneliness and disastrous relationships, yet Morissette’s album is still amazing, in that it fully displays female power and aggression. Her songs represent a deep anger and frustration with a simultaneous bestowed sadness, and the levels of angst that are present throughout this album allow for a connection between her and her listeners. As people, it is common for us to feel uncontrollably crazed and sorrowful at the same time. After listening to her album, it is comforting to know that other people feel that way. In a way, I took a sense of empowerment away from the lyrics in the songs of this album, and because of this, my two favourite songs from the album are: “You Oughta Know” and “Right Through You.” The album is perfect for understanding yourself, coming to terms with feelings, and gaining a sense of leadership and confidence.
