Alanis Morissette – Ironic

Alanis Morissette – Ironic (Official 4K Music Video)

What Is It?

The song Ironic by Alanis Morissette from her 1995 music album Jagged Little Pill.

Here is how Wikipedia describes this song:

“Ironic” is a song by Canadian singer Alanis Morissette.

It was released in February 1996 as the third single from her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1995).

It was written by Morissette and Glen Ballard, and was produced by him.

“Ironic” is a song written in the key of B major, and includes a moderate tempo of eighty-five beats per minute.

The lyrics present several situations that are described as “ironic”; this has led to debate whether any of these actually match the accepted meaning of irony.[1]

For six weeks, the track topped the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart.

It also reached the top five in Australia, New Zealand, and Norway.

In the United States, the song reached number four on April 13, 1996, and since then it has been her highest-charting single on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Ironic” was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The song won the Juno Award for Single of the Year, and received two Grammy Award nominations in 1997, for Record of the Year and Best Short Form Music Video.

French director Stéphane Sednaoui filmed the music video.

In it, Morissette drives through a winter landscape, and she plays multiple roles as her passengers.

MTV nominated the music video for six MTV Video Music Awards in 1996, winning three of them.

The music video was listed on VH1’s “Greatest Music Videos” list and was parodied by DBA Flip, Allison Rheaume, Rusty and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

“Ironic” was written by Alanis Morissette and Glen Ballard, and produced by the latter for her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1995).[3]

In an interview with Christopher Walsh of Billboard, Ballard explained how he and Morissette met, and how “Ironic” was written.

He commented: “I’m telling you, within 15 minutes we were at it— just writing.

‘Ironic’ was the third song we wrote.

Oh God, we were just having fun.

I thought, ‘I don’t know what this is—what genre it is—who knows?

It’s just good’”.[4]

According to the sheet music published at Musicnotes.com, it is a song set in the time signature of common time, composed in a moderate tempo of eighty-two beats per minute.[5]

It is set in the key of B major with Morissette’s vocal range from the tone of E5 to B♭5, and “Ironic” chord progression starts with the sequence of Emaj7–F♯6–Emaj7–F♯6, before changing to F♯–Badd9–F♯–G♯m7 in the chorus.[5]

KRS-One – Sound Of Da Police

KRS-One – Sound of da Police (Official Video)

What Is It?

The song Sound Of Da Police by the American Hip Hop musician KRS-One from his 1993 music album Return Of The Boom Bap.

KRS ONE – Sound of Da Police

This is how Wikipedia describes this song:

The song criticizes police brutality and systemic racism.[3][4]

It begins with KRS-One whooping twice to evoke a police siren (the “sound of the police”); this recurs several times throughout the song.

The heavy bass sample loop, and part of a guitar solo were taken from Grand Funk Railroad‘s cover of “Inside-Looking Out”, the final track of their LP Grand Funk.[5]

Part of the drum track is taken from “Sing a Simple Song” by Sly and the Family Stone.[5]

The music video was directed by Michael Lucero.

Here are the descriptions for the videos above:

Chorus:
Woop-woop!
That’s the sound of da police!
Woop-woop!
That’s the sound of the beast!

Stand clear! Don man a-talk
You can’t stand where I stand, you can’t walk where I walk
Watch out! We run New York
Police man come, we bust him out the park
I know this for a fact, you don’t like how I act
You claim I’m sellin’ crack
But you be doin’ that
I’d rather say “see ya”
Cause I would never be ya
Be an officer? You wicked overseer!
Ya hotshot, wanna get props and be a savior
First show a little respect, change your behavior
Change your attitude, change your plan
There could never really be justice on stolen land
Are you really for peace and equality?
Or when my car is hooked up, you know you wanna follow me
Your laws are minimal
Cause you won’t even think about lookin’ at the real criminal
This has got to cease
Cause we be getting hyped to the sound of da police!

Chorus

Now here’s a little truth
Open up your eye
While you’re checking out the boom-bap, check the exercise
Take the word “overseer,” like a sample
Repeat it very quickly in a crew, for example
Overseer, overseer, overseer, overseer
Officer, officer, officer, officer
Yeah, officer from overseer
You need a little clarity? Check the similarity!
The overseer rode around the plantation
The officer is off patrolling all the nation
The overseer could stop you what you’re doing
The officer will pull you over just when he’s pursuing
The overseer had the right to get ill
And if you fought back, the overseer had the right to kill
The officer has the right to arrest
And if you fight back, they put a hole in your chest!
They both ride horses
After 400 years, I’ve got no choices
The police, they have a little gun
So when I’m on the streets, I walk around with a bigger one
(Woop-woop!) I hear it all day
Just so they can run the light and be upon their way

Chorus

Check out the message in a rough stylee
The real criminals are the C-O-P
You check for undercover and the one PD
But just a mere Black man, them want check me
Them check out me car for it shine like the sun
But them jealous or them vexed cause them can’t afford one
Black people still slaves up til today
But the Black police officer nah see it that way
Him want a salary
Him want it
So he put on a badge and kill people for it
My grandfather had to deal with the cops
My great-grandfather dealt with the cops
My GREAT grandfather had to deal with the cops
And then my great, great, great, great… when it’s gonna stop?

Sound Of Da Police | Weather Versus Guns

KRS-One – Sound of da Police (Official Video)

Dream 1

This dream was inspired by me watching / listening to the music video for the song Sound Of Da Police by KRS-One on YouTube for the first time after someone mentioned it in a YouTube comment.

All that I can remember of this dream now is that it involved the song Sound Of Da Police by KRS-One, I assume that the song was played during the dream; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Here is the description for the video above:

Sins of The Father · Donna Burke · Ludvig Forssell · Akihiro Honda

METAL GEAR SOLID Ⅴ ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK SELECTION

℗ Konami Digital Entertainment

Released on: 2015-09-02

Auto-generated by YouTube.

This is how Fandom describes this song:

Sins of the Father” is a song from the game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

It was first featured in the E3 2013 trailer.

In The Phantom Pain, the opening was heard during the montage for Venom Snake and Ocelot’s journey from Cyprus to Afghanistan early in the game, and bars of it were also heard whenever Snake smokes a phantom cigar.

The latter half is also played during the car scene at the end of Mission 30: Skull Face, with the song playing in full during the credits for Chapter 1 around the time Eli receives the English strain of the vocal cord parasite from Tretij Rebenok.

It is also featured as a cassette tape, acquired after completing Mission 31: Sahelanthropus.

It will also be a BGM track that will be made available in the Version 1.02 update for Metal Gear Online 3, named “MGSV:TPP SINS OF THE FATHER.”.

​Overview

The lyrics were written by Ludvig Forssell, performed by Donna Burke and composed by Akihiro Honda.

The version of the song shown during the trailer was edited to fit the footage and better provide clues as to the game’s themes.

During the 2014 Tokyo Game Show, a different verse of the song was heard, matching previously shown notes.
