De problemen van onze tijd in 4 minuten

De 21ste eeuw is voor niemand gemakkelijk. Dat is alvast wat Harry Clayton Wright zingt in zijn eigen versie van Alanis Morisette-hit ‘Ironic’.

Guy Stevens

In 4 minuten krijgen we alles te horen waar mensen in onze tijd mee sukkelen, zij het dan op een wat eigenzinnige en vooral grappige manier. Hier is de volledige tekst:

An old man turned ninety-eightHe waited for a GIF to load and died the next day.It’s your best profile picture, that doesn’t get any likesIts being a flawless babe on Tinder, and not getting any swipes right.And isn’t it ironic... don’t you think

Discovering Grindr on your wedding dayIt’s a free song on iTunes when you’ve already paidThe Millennium Bug and your Norton AntiVirus is a day late.And who would’ve thought... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe didn’t give out his details onlineHe didn’t forward on that email to twenty people, thinking, well, he’d be fine.He had a run of bad luck that lasted exactly twenty years.And as he accidentally put his hand a blender, he thought'Fuck. I didn’t send that email to twenty people...'And isn’t it ironic... don’t you think

Discovering Grindr on your wedding dayIt’s a free song on iTunes when you’ve already paidThe Millennium Bug and your Norton AntiVirus is a day late.And who would’ve thought... it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on youWhen you think everything’s okay and everything’s going rightAnd life has a funny way of helping you out whenYou think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows upIn your face - I didn’t change that bit.A slow download speed, when you’re already late.You post a photo of your butt and the internet doesn’t break.It’s like ten thousand iPhone 4 chargers when all you need is a 5.It’s meeting the man of my dreamsAnd then meeting him in real life.And isn’t it ironic...don’t you think

Discovering Grindr on your wedding dayIt’s a free song on iTunes when you’ve already paidThe Millennium Bug and your Norton AntiVirus is a day late.And who would’ve thought... it figures.
