Random Thoughts: Ironic Word Plays

Just yesterday I realized I don't know the difference between the words "drama" and "melodrama."

Is melodrama just a (dramatic?) version of drama? If so, is that ironic?

Alanis Morrissette wrote a song called "Ironic" which did not provide examples of Irony. Is that Ironic? And if it is, does that make the song correctly titled, which means it's not ironic? I'm confused.

I believe Alanis is from Canada. I'm not really researching this at this point, so let's just pretend she is, even if she isn't. In fact, let's just scrap this whole point, because (ironically) I have no idea why being Canadian mattered. (It's ironic because it isn't ironic).

Ironically, this entire post has no point. It sprang from a mental discussion of the difference between being melodramatic and dramatic. Random thoughts, indeed.
