Isn't it ironic that Alanis Morissette's hit song "Isn't It Ironic?" isn't actually about irony at all, but rather coincidence or happenstance? I guess "Isn't It Happenstance?" didn't have the same ring to it.
Twenty years ago "Isn't It Ironic?" made Miss Morissette a household name, and nowadays she has a pretty good sense of humor about the silly pop song that earned her millions of fans.
But a lot has happened in the last twenty years, so when Alanis needed lyrics for an updated version of her song she turned to James Corden for help encapsulating the ironies of the modern age.
