She’s been around for quite some time now, scored some big hits and some big flops, so why not give our Alanis Morissette her own rate?!

You oughta know that she’s got a lot of songs (over 150), so I’m not going to put everything in one rate. I’ve decided to keep it a bit more compact and just do the singles.

What do I mean by "just the singles"? Well: all commerically released singles and the most notable promo singles. I used Discogs, Wikipedia and my own supposed former infatuation judgement to come to a selection. Some of my choices may be up for debate, but I think I managed to get her essential tracks in this rate.

All of that considered, I've narrowed the rate down to these 38 songs.

Eight easy rules
1) You give each song a score from 0 tot 10.
2) Half points are allowed.
3) One 11 is allowed, used it wisely.
4) If you'd like to comment: please do so, 'cause it makes the write-ups so much more fun!
5) So get your hand out of your pocket and start typing!
6) As always, you send in your scores and comments by 'starting a conversation' with me.
7) When I receive your scores, I will sent a reply to confirm.
8) Thank U.

In praise of the honorable mention
You can also choose one album track/b-side/etc. that isn't included in the rate and send it in as your 'honorable mention' (HM). You don't have to score your HM (since it's probably a 10 anyway), but a comment would be appreciated obviously.

The HM's will be revealed one by one alongside the actual eliminations, but they don't 'count' in the rate. It's just a little extra thing to shine a light on your favorite songs that weren't singles. The HM is optional.

You can send in your HM (with a comment if you want) together with your scores.

Voting deadline
You can vote between Monday November 16 and Wednesday December 16th. Voting ends on December 16th at 11.59PM, London time.

This is not a mastodont rate and a lot of the songs are very well-known, so I'm hoping for lots of voters. So take part everybody, and I won't have to wish for black flies in your chardonnays!

I won't be taking part, there's too much to go through (not a fan, just a casual) but "Underneath" would get my 11. What a gorgeous song.
 
I pretty recently picked up a Alanis boxset knowing full well that I had lost track of her sometime around the Unplugged stuff. But Hand in my Pocket was my jam back in the day. So i'm up for this.

I'd pick either Unplugged or Under Rug Swept as my favourite album.
