Alanis' second album has been my favourite for forever, but for some reason it's the one no one else seems to know of/like. I feel like it's her biggest in terms of issues tackled and preconceptions confronted.
It's also darker and heavier than her other albums, none more so than on this track. It's a really intense, tightly claustrophobic song. Plus "you were mindboggling, you were intense, you were uncomfortable in your own skin, you were thirsty, but mostly you were beautiful" pretty much describes every boy I've ever loved.
[There's not many people that give me long hair envy, but Alanis is one of the few. She's so beautuful. Sigh.]
