so pure

let's be outspoken, let's be ridiculous, let's solve the world's problems...


you from new york
you are so relevant
you reduce me to cosmic tears
luminous more so than most anyone
unapologetically alive
knot in my stomach
and lump in my throat

i love you when you dance
when you freestyle in trance
so pure, such an expression

i love you when you dance
when you freestyle in trance
so pure, such an expression

supposed former infatuation junkie
i sink three-pointers
and you wax poetically

i love you when you dance
when you freestyle in trance
so pure, such an expression

i love you when you dance
when you freestyle in trance
so pure, such an expression

letís grease the wheel over tea
letís discuss things in confidence
letís be outspoken, letís be ridiculous
letís solve the world's problems

i love you when you dance
when you freestyle in trace
so pure, such an expression

i love you when you dance
when you freestyle in trance
so pure, such an expression


analysis: the man you see in the video above (all five stills) is dash mihok, who has the distinction of inspiring not only this song, but also "that particular time", which alanis recorded mere hours after dash broke up with her. this song 

"both the expression of anger and joy have been equally vulnerable for me at times in my life. i allowed myself to be inspired and infatuated with this person who is unapologetically and exuberantly himself." - alanis, reprise records album review

"the person who inspired the song also inspired me to delve into the dancer that was in remission in me. every video i've ever done has allowed me to stretch in some way....i hadn't been choreographed in years and had never tried some of the styles of dance that were learned for this video - it allowed me to tap into a part of me that used to love to dance when i was younger. over the last year, i'd become enamored with the dancing styles of the '40s in particular, and intrigued by the evolution of dancing throughout the last five decades, and the spirit and different kinds of attitudes that fueled them. when it came time to create this video, there was no question that there would be dancing in it and that these different eras needed to be referenced!" - alanis, aol interview
