Alanis Morissette is already quite famous for her plaintive songs of passion and longing. There is a message in every composition. Now, she has created a song titled “Today” which garners support for Marianne Williamson.
The congressional candidate is running for another representative’s seat and the heat of voting is on. The singer, who is about to enter her middle age, has expressed her true feelings regarding the song she has come up with.
It is a supportive, exciting, deeply human and loving song that will prove crucial in the campaign. The sense of political activism and higher awareness that Marianne represents is captured in the lyrical power song.
Alanis has said that Marianne especially visited her while she was recording the song in a studio. They had all gotten together and engaged in churning out the musical number. She was very impressed by Marianne who she said is a wonderful person and the ideal candidate for the seat.
"I was attempting to capture the passion, mission, activism, deep humanity and tenderness of Marianne, the new political sensibility she represents and the consciousness that produced it," Morissette said in a statement. "Recording at Sunset Sound with my bandmates, Marianne came by and visited. We all huddled together as the song was recorded. I love this song. I love this woman, and I love a world that would vote for her."
Meanwhile, Marianne has also expressed great enthusiasm and heaped a lot of praise on Alanis for creating such a song of strength that goes the length. She said that the song was so energizing that it made you want to get up and shout at the top of your voice.
"Alanis Morissette has produced a masterpiece," Williamson wrote. "I have never heard a song more powerfully describe this moment in our history, or more lovingly call forth our generation's genius from the ashes of our pain. With her inimitable musical alchemy, Alanis has provided an anthem for our audacious quest to get America back on track."
It was in short a classic masterpiece that had a positive effect on everyone who heard it. The present moment in our history was celebrated in the song in a jovial and jubilant manner. The phoenix of triumph rising from the ashes of defeat was the main theme.
She quoted Ben Franklin who said that America’s destiny is not power but light. Williamson wrote, "In the words of Benjamin Franklin, 'America's destiny is not Power, but Light.' Would he love Alanis, or what?"
The composition is literally a shout for revolution and a call to action. Other celebrities who chimed in with support for Marianne include: Eva Longoria, Nicole Richie, Kim Kardashian and Kate Perry.
