Alanis Morissette, 'Thank U'

"Thank you disillusionment, Thank you frailty, Thank you consequence, Thank you thank you silence." The Canadian singer said she was inspired to write the 1998 song at a time when she took many months off from work and was, finally, "silent, and I breathed." The music video was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2000 Grammy Awards.
