Day 316 - Alanis Morissette -Perfect

DAY 316
Alanis Morissette – "Perfect”
From "Jagged Little Pill"

"Perfect" is one of the best songs featured on "Jagged Little Pill" in my opinion.

Obviously the lyrical content is highly relateable to most people because all of us, at one time or another, feel inadequate or like we don't measure up.

Whether it be to ourselves or to those around us. A lot of times it is a parent that you always feel like you strive to make proud, or a boss, or a friend... and we all know that feeling of trying to push yourself to try and please a certain individual and sometimes feeling like you have failed miserably.

I really enjoy the raw honest nature of this song. It is so refreshing to hear a song that you know was derived from some specific experience or feeling. Something with a REAL connection.... not just some story that sounded good for the tune. Not that there is anything wrong with that method of writing, but for me I love to feel that connection in the material. I could be wrong but I do sense that REALNESS in this song.
