Day 08 ~ A song you know all the words to ~ Hand in My Pocket - Alanis Morissette ~

Something in me refuses to see this as anything other than a challenge: name the most complicated song you have ever learned*

When I was seventeen I knew the words to many many songs. Not any more. Nowadays I know the words only when I am listening to the song itself. About a half-second after I hear the words. I think that counts.

For this project my first thought was the track most often quoted on the blog. But there's a limit to how much Paul Simon I can inflict on my faithful readers (cough) in thirty-two songs.

Instead another singer known for the wordiness of her songs - Alanis Morissette - and a classic: One Hand in My Pocket

* That would be Supper's Ready I once even competed in a Supper's Ready lyrics competition.

I am not convinced that you know all the words to this! I'm going to test you next time I see you!

Will the song be playing at the same time?
I am going to be learning them.
