Friday Tunes: ‘Hand In My Pocket,’ Alanis Morissette (& Weekend Linkdump)

“‘Hand in My Pocket’ is a rock song by Canadian recording artist and songwriter Alanis Morissette, for her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1995). The song was written by Morissette and Glen Ballard, and was released as the second single from the album. The song was released on October 31, 1995, nearly five months after the album release. ‘Hand in My Pocket’ received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who applauded Morissette’s songwriting.” (Wikipedia)

I always thought Alanis Morissette got more crap than she deserved for her music. She had a great voice and fairly solid lyrics, for the 90’s, plus her music was catchy. She was never, like, a huge favorite of mine, but I always liked her. You can check out the lyrics here.

Weekend Reading

I’ve got a stack of great reading here, including the rundown on the House GOP’s assault on Obamacare and regulation in general, an interesting thing about Donald Trump and fascism, science communication, and more.
