Twenty years later, we're still head over feet for Alanis Morissette's 1995 blockbuster.
5. "Mary Jane" is about how your problems aren't everything.
"Mary Jane" addresses a friend who's dared to take a long, hard walk on the wild side. It's a loving interrogation and a brutal intervention. "Please be honest, Mary Jane / Are you happy? / Please, don't censor your tears." Perhaps the most emotional moment on "Jagged Little Pill" is when Alanis copes with the inevitability of Mary Jane's need for self-destructive "freedom," in whatever form that may take. She sends off her pal with the terrifying, heartbreaking line, "Keep warm, my dear / Keep dry." Check out the "Jagged Little Pill Acoustic" version of this song to hear Alanis hold the beautiful climactic note for a whopping 19 seconds.
