Music of U: Uninvited, Underappreciated

Short post today. Lucky U! (Ha! See what I did there...)

1. "Uninvited" by Alanis Morissette
An angsty female singer-songwriter from the mid-90s, Alanis burst onto the US music scene with her phenomenal debut album, Jagged Little Pill, though many of us remember her from the Nickelodeon show, "You Can't Do That on Television." Alanis recorded this track for the City of Angels soundtrack and I think the piano and strings really add depth. But holy smokes, her voice. Man, watching this reminds me how powerful she is. Brava, Alanis.

2. "Underappreciated" by Christina Aguilera
I know, I know. This is my second Christina tune. What can I say? Back in her early days (read: pre-Marilyn Monroe wanna be makeover/plastic surgery), she was great! This song will always remind me of driving home from my waitressing job. Talk about feeling under appreciated....

Okay, gotta run. Have a beaUtiful TUesday!


  1. Nice theme. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs in April. My alphabet is at myqualityday.blogspot.com

  2. ooh! I forgot all about Uninvited by Alanis! What a great song!

  3. You found two that began with a U - good job!

  4. I haven't thought about You Can't Do That on Television in YEARS. :) Love both these songs. Nice work in finding some U's!

  5. I like both women as singers, just not every song they do. It's not all music to my liking. Good idea for your A-Z Challenge.

  6. I got that version of "Uninvited" on CD - I think it's from the Grammys - and it's the best version of that song by far.


I love getting comments. They're as much fun as getting real snail mail. So please, chime in and tell me what you think!
