“Always too hot never too cold
you make your best shot too hot to hold
never too young never too old
you gotta go for gold

Hey boy you wanted all or nothin’
lose the apprehension baby
and go with the flow cause you know you’ve got
stand up if you want the answers
you need to blast ‘em straight up baby
so say what you mean and you mean to say now

Hey you don’t have to go and prove it
you just go ahead and do it
your time is for the takin’, makin’
the best of what you got now

Never too hot never too cold
you make your best shot too hot to hold
never too young never too old
you gotta go for gold

Don’t care what they say about ya
you never throw a hero party
for those who oppose who you chose to be now
maybe you could feel the power
it’s like a bomb inside your head that blows if you’re
slow when you go to use it
you, you gotta show them that you mean
it just go ahead and scream it
and show them what they’re missin’ listen
to what your heart could tell ya

Never too hot never too cold
you make your best shot too hot to hold
never too young never too old
you gotta go for gold

You gotta go for gold and you’ll make it baby
gold! And when you’re there you gotta
throw your hands in the air
and wave ‘em like you just don’t care
reachin’ teachin’ practice what you’re preachin’
throw your hands in the air
and wave ‘em like you just don’t care
movin’ provin’ everything you’re doin’

Never too hot never too cold
you make your best shot too hot to hold
never too young Never too old
you gotta go for gold

You, you don’t have to go and prove it
you just go ahead and do it
your time is for the takin’ makin’
the best of what you got now
always too hot
never too cold
give your best shot
go with the flow cause you know you’ve got to

Never too hot never too cold
you make your best shot too hot to hold
never too young never too old
you gotta go for gold”.

Citazioni.

Too Hot is a pop-dance and new jack swing song co-written by Alanis Morissette and Leslie Howe, and produced by Howe for Morissette’s debut album, Alanis (1991). It was released as the album’s first single in May 1991 (see 1991 in music). The song is driven by drum machines, electronic keyboards and a guitar, and Morissette’s brothers Chad and Wade provided some of the backing vocals. In the chorus the song’s protagonist tells a boy aspiring towards a goal that he’s “Always too hot” and “never too cold”, adding that his “best shot” is “too hot to hold”; with this in mind, she urges him to “go for gold”. The fifth chorus is sung almost a cappella. Morissette performs the first part of each verse as a rap, with lyrics describing the consequences of her “baby” achieving his goal. After the first chorus a man’s voice says “I know you gonna dig this … Ch-check this out”, and more men’s voices (one of whom addresses the “party people in the house”) appear during the song’s bridge, in which the backing singers shout for the listener to nonchalantly wave their arms around in the air. Purposeful arm-waving in an uncaring fashion can be seen by some as paradoxical, or even ironic.
Morissette had independently released a single, “Fate Stay with Me“, in 1985, but “Too Hot” became her mainstream breakthrough in Canada; it reached number 14 on the country’s singles chart, peaked within the top ten on contemporary hit radio and contributed to the success of the album Alanis, which was certified gold during the same period. It is her most popular dance-pop release, and was her biggest hit in Canada until the singles from her international debut album Jagged Little Pill (1995). It was not released elsewhere. At the 1992 Juno Awards “Too Hot” received a nomination for “Single of the Year”, and the song’s “Hott Shot” remix was nominated in the category of “Best Dance Recording”. CBC called the song “Paula Abdul-inspired”, and the Arizona Daily Wildcat described it as “cheesy” and “poppy”. “Too Hot“, along with “Feel Your Love” (another song from Alanis) and “An Emotion Away” (from Morissette’s 1992 second album Now Is the Time), was used on the soundtrack of the 1993 film Just One of the Girls, in which Morissette appeared. She performed an acoustic version of the song during her 2005 Jagged Little Pill Acoustic concert tour, introducing the song with the statement “For those 16-year-old days”. The single’s video intercuts scenes featuring Morissette and others dancing at night with black-and-white footage of her loitering, flirting, streetwalking and dancing with friends during the day. The Toronto Sun noted Morissette’s “big” hair in the video”.
