I have a theory about this. The only reason Alanis made it is because of
Flea's bass playing on "You Oughta Know." Since Flea played, everyone has
been in a magical trance. Since his sonic enchantment, people think they
are under the spell of Alanis, when it has really been Flea. So when
they're listening to "Ironic", it's really Flea's action-at-a-distance bass
playing from "YOK." Kind of a quantum mechanical musical effect.
