The general vibe of Alanis Morissette's opus, Jagged Little Pill, is that she's an angry woman plagued with regret. Crusading feminists took up her song, "You Oughta Know" as their flagship with lyrics such as, "When I scratch my nails down someone else's back I hope you feel it..."
There is almost nothing peaceful or pleasant about this album except for one song, "Head Over Feet." This song is a startling departure from the general harshness of Jagged Little Pill. It is this tender-hearted exception that might be adapted into a song of worship directed to God.
"Head Over Feet" expresses the heart of someone who has been won over by genuine love and affection. Whether or not this describes Morissette's heart directly, the fact that she of all female artists performs this song is poetic. Morissette expresses stunning tenderness, even humility, as she sings "You've already won me over, in spite of me..."
Human romance exists to illustrate God's divinely romantic pursuit of His people. Human romance is beautiful because it is a reflection of His extravagant love for us. The fact that He injects everyday things with such heavenly significance demonstrates this pursuit.
Morissette describes a relationship that brilliantly describes the way God interacts with His redeemed people. He listens. He treats them better than they're used to being treated. He demonstrates a divine, unconditional love that doesn't make sense to us naturally.
