Almost 20 Years And Still Going Strong

20 years ago, producer Glen Ballard and singer/songwriter Alanis Morisette sat down to collaborate on Jagged Little Pill.  It has since sold more than 33 million copies and is one of my favorite albums of all time.

This album is nothing short of cathartic and real. Right Through  You is about fake people and seeing them for who they really are. You Oughta Know is still perfect song for when your significant other has left you for someone else. Head Over Feet is about falling in love.  You Learn is about falling down and then picking yourself right back up. Perfect is when you feel like you are not meeting the expectations of your elders.

This album got me through my teenage years and still gets me through the rough spots of life.

Thank you, Alanis Morisette and Glen Ballard for this amazing album. Even after 19 years, it is still my go to album when the emotions are swirling around my psyche and I need to express myself.
