Thank u (long intro) - Alanis Morissette

Time for a new post! Time to go back again, this time of about 15 years to 1998, when Alanis Morissette released her second album (fourth if we consider her two dance releases limited to Canada when she was younger) after the super successful Jagged Little Pill. The expectations for this album have been huge and, as it happens oftentimes, they have not been met, at least in terms of commercial success. The heavy burden of having an enormously successful album very soon in the career of an artist is that the rest of your career always lives in the shadows of that success. Yet, it'd be unfair to say that Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie was not a success: it went on to become a fans favourite and it sold decently. The first single out of it was Thank u: it is one of my Alanis personal favs and here I'm sharing with you a longer version, with some added (beautiful) lyrics with respect to the standard album and single version.
