One of the remarkable things about this song and the album Jagged Little Pill, which had 7 or 8 top singles from it, is Alanis was all of 19 years of age when she wrote this with Glen Ballard, who also wrote 'Man In The Mirror'.

BTW, I really liked this version, and the changing the original line to "It's like meeting the man of my dreams and then meeting his beautiful husband." I wish she had released it that way. All of us (straight) gals have fallen for a gay guy at one time or another.

Hey Kerry, thanks for posting this! Alanis has always been one of my favorites (though I still like her second album stuff better than the current pop stuff). I think her "pissed-off grunge chick" image, when she first became popular, overshadowed how great her voice really is.
