The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame have a strict criteria to gain entry to their hallow Halls but there is a far more simple criteria for qualification to The Lucy Museum of Musicians who deserve entry to Lucy's Museum of Musicians, they must have a minimum of three songs which would make me turn up the radio if they came on.
Some are obvious, some are a surprise and some include covers of over people's songs which they become associated with so you may not agree but in the best tradition of Punk, I don't care!
Qualifying Songs: Ironic, Forgiven, You Oughta Know,
Jagged Little Pill was in the UK Album charts for 145 weeks and was a rip roaring 13 songs from an angry young lady with a magnificent set of lungs and electric guitars which happily coincided with the grunge theme of the time although the song 'Ironic' received a kicking for the improper application of the term although possibly she was being ironic by singing a song called Ironic which wasn't ironic at all.
While you could almost hear the sound of bunnies boiling in her early songs, 'You Oughta Know' especially, she evolved into a run-of-the-mill female singer seemingly having got all her vitriol out in that one album and then dialled it down and never achieved that level of success again.
'Forgiven' is a typical spectacular Morissette builder with a sceptical religious tint to it and although her next few albums had a few hidden gems on them, her brilliantly angry songs had been replaced by songs pondering the troubles and joys of maturity and domesticity but not anywhere near as exciting as Alanis at her angsty best.
