Well, on any other day you’d have a normal silverware place setting, so I don’t know where that leaves us.

Agree, dumb... unless it was her intent all along to name a song "Ironic" with lyrics that purport to exemplify irony and yet fall just short of it.

Yes.

Perhaps it's ironic that I've put so much thought into something that I claim to be inconsequential.

No, you’re not the only one who’s been bugged by this for years.

The 98-year-old man dying in a plane crash after being afraid of dying in a plan crash is not ironic. It’s precognition. It would be ironic if he feared and avoided flying, then took a trip to Hawaii and was instantly killed by falling on his face outside the airport.

The Eternal, not a favorite, but it has grown on me as a later-stage SY.

Not me. I still think of it as meh, with a couple choice cuts. Every other SY album is choice with a couple meh cuts (at most)
