The lesser known working title to Canadian singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette's hit song "Ironic".

Many have been confused as to the choice of ironic as the songs title when the lyrics are more unfortunate than ironic.

In fact there in lies the only thing ironic, it was written by someone who didn't know the definition of irony.
If you read through the lyrics you can clearly see where she was coming from with "First World Problems" as the working title as seen below;

1)It's like rain on your wedding day

2)A traffic jam when you're already late

3)It's a free ride when you've already paid

4)It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife

5)A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break

That being said, having the song contain a verse about a husband "kiss(ed) his kids goodbye" get on a plane and have it crash is neither a First World Problems, unfortunate or ironic. It's just messed up.

It's very easy to mis-interprate the definition of "First World Problems" but once you truly understand the pain you go through when your Wi-Fi wont work or your mum only gave you one lolly instead of two, you just dont give a fuck.
