E’ Ironic di Alanis Morisette la canzone che fa da colonna alla pubblicità in onda da Ottobre 2011 del tè Twinings.

Scritto dalla stessa Morissette e Glen Ballard, il brano è del 1995 e fa parte dell’album Jagged Little Pill, di cui fu il quarto singolo ad essere estratto.

Nel 2004 la cantante canadese cambiò il testo per evidenziare il suo appoggio ai matrimoni dello stesso sesso e inserì la canzone negli album iTunes Originals (2004) and Jagged Little Pill Acoustic (2005).

Il testo di IronicIronic - Jagged Little Pill

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It’s a black fly in your Chardonnay
It’s a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn’t it ironic… don’t you think

It’s like rain on your wedding day
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take
Who would’ve thought… it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
‘Well isn’t this nice…’
And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think
Repeat Chorus

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything’s okay and everything’s going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

It’s a traffic jam when you’re already late
It’s a no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It’s meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think
A little too ironic… and yeah I really do think…
Repeat Chorus

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out
