Alanis Morissette has mined her lumps and letdowns and translated them into sales of 60 million albums worldwide, 16 Junos, and seven Grammy Awards. Ahead of her eighth studio release, called Havoc and Bright Lights, we tribute our hometown honey with a low-tech lyric creator inspired by the highly confessional and occasionally cringe-worthy tone of her back catalogue. Go ahead and piece together your own stanzas, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie-style

Get started with these Alanis favourites:
