Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter)

Dear Alanis,

Most of your fans left you after Jagged Little Pill and even though it was a pretty mainstream album something about your lyrics touched me. Listening to them made me feel like you understood things that were going on inside of me on a level other people don’t.

I was very excited about the release of Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. After listening to that album, I knew that you knew. I understood that you are more than a performer, you are an artist. To this day…more than 10 years later your music always cheers me up, no matter how bad I’m feeling. Sometimes I shared your raw emotion and sometimes your songs made me cry. I remember writing a letter to a boy who had broken my heart and including lyrics from your songs because it is how I really felt. Some of those lyrics were from ‘Everything’. Poor guy doesn’t know what he threw away 😉

‘Thank you’ for being so brutally honest with yourself and sharing that honesty with us. You’ve made me realize that everyone really does go through hard times and gets hurt and that I am not alone. Having had a baby 9 months ago, I can’t wait to hear what you write after having yours (Congratulations!). Perhaps you’ll be able to express in words what I cannot.

Much love and admiration,
