Why Great

It’s such a different experience watching someone who actually knows a lot about music analyze something rather than the invariably-male music snobs who disdain anything made by women.

I’d forgotten Flea and Dave Navarro played on that song. Flea being there explains the great bass; always loved the bass line on that song. Les Claypool is technically more proficient but no one can lay down a groove quite like Flea, then or now.

And of course Morissette’s vocals are absolutely iconic; one of the best vocal performances ever recorded. I’m even more impressed with it after realizing how much of it is a single take — many modern pop songs are literally assembled word by word from 30+ different takes.
