"A great mixture of her live tracks combined in one great single make this album a must have for Alanis fans. This is an excellent album. The first track is her release "Head Over Feet" which is from the origional LP she released in 1996/1995. t is a great song and everybody enjoys it. The Live tracks are especially good and have good sound quality. They were recorded on March 6, 1996 at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the USA. Thesse are the best live tracks that I've ever heard ALanis ever sing. Boy! She must have a great live voice. Over and out, this is all I'm going to yack about the goodness of this single. But, it is a little pricey and hard to find now."

"In this single Alanis sings three live songs, and one album version was recorded. 1: Head Over Feet (album)2: You Learn (live on March 6, 1996) A good version of "You Learn" however they cut out the extended part when Alanis beats on the cymbols.3: Hand In My Pocket (live on March 6, 1996) The croud really goes wild in this awesome version. However instead of saying "I care but I'm restless," it sounds like "I'd kill but I'm restless."4: Right Through You (live on March 6, 1996) This version is a fairly good one. However, she has done better. The croud gows absolutely with the first line of "Wait a minute man!"A good good single"
Another Classic From The Greatest Album Of All Time!

"In 1995, Alanis Morissette released her debut album "Jagged Little Pill." At first the album was a slow-burner debuting at No.117 in its first week and sold a few hundred thousand copies. A month later it was in the Top 10 and it debuted at No.1 in September two months after its debut. As the months went by though, the album picked up speed and began selling considerably well. When the first single from the album, "You Oughta Know," debuted on radios and MTV stations across the world, I think about 98% of the global population stopped dead in their tracks and stood in awe at this angst-ridden vixen whine to us about a lover who left her for someone else. The woman was scored, and out for revenge. Jagged Little Pill soon enough started to climb the charts all over the world. Produced by Glen Ballard and apparently recorded in under three weeks, the album was perfect. It was just what everyone needed at this time, and it sold by the truckload. It went on to shift a staggering 17 million copies in America alone! In the UK, it topped the charts through 1995 and 1996 for 21 weeks and sold more than 3 million copies. In Australia at the time, it became only the second album in history to sell more than 1 million copies, breaking all possible records. This pattern was repeated across Europe, Asia and the rest of the known world. Alanis Morissette was a phenomenon, and Jagged Little Pill sold almost 30 million copies worldwide to become the biggest selling album by a female in the history of music."Head Over Feet" was the fifth single to be taken from Jagged Little Pill in August 1996. The song peaked at No.7 in the UK sales chart and became Alanis' first Top 10 single. The song was yet another big hit all over world and garnered massive radio airplay from stations across the globe, yet it didn't quite match the success of Alanis' previous two singles, "Ironic" and "You Learn." The song is presented in a similar way to the other songs that were released from Jagged Little Pill in that they open with a guitar and drum section, before Alanis starts singing. The song has three verses and three choruses in typical Alanis style, with a solo section in the middle.Head Over Feet opens with a very retro guitar that accompanies Alanis' voice as she opens the first verse, "I had no choice but to hear you. You stated your case time and again. I thought about it. You treat me like I'm a princess. I'm not used to liking that. You ask how my day was." This simplistic first verse is simple in the way that the lyrics are normal words and ordinary - a common feature on Jagged Little Pill. Alanis then sings the chorus, "You've already won me over in spite of me. And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet. And don't be surprised if I love you for all that are. I couldn't help it, it's all your fault!" Alanis then sings the second verse as the song gains momentum with the drums and guitar, "Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole. You're so much braver than I give you credit for. That's not lip service." This is a considerably less shorter verse, which is only half the length of the first. Alanis then moves swiftly into the second chorus.Alanis then sings what is essentially the second part of the second verse, but after the second chorus! She sings, "You are the bearer of unconditional things. You held your breath and the door for me. Thanks for your patience." She then stops singing and a harmonica solo takes over. The way it is arranged is incredibly catchy and every true Alanis fan such as myself will know each and every note to whistle along to it! Or is that just me? Alanis then sings, "You're the best listener that I've ever met. You're my best friend - best friend with benefits. What took me so long? I've never felt this healthy before. I've never wanted something rational. I am aware now. I am aware now." The drums then strike a few times more when the song is quiet, before the chorus is sing all over again and the song dies out.Can you believe it? I've never seen the video to Head Over Feet! Infact, I'm not even sure if one was made, but if one was, I sure as Hell would love to see it! This song was a big hit all over the world, not only because of Alanis' staggering popularity at the time, but because it was a song that people could secretly identify with at the same time. When people can relate to music, it usually does exceptionally well, and this was exactly the case with Alanis, Jagged Little Pill and Head Over Feet! Well, that and the fact that JLP is the greatest album of all time!"
