"Not as We" is a song from Alanis Morissette's seventh studio album, Flavors of Entanglement. Morissette performed the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on July 22, 2008, in promotion of the album. "Not as We" was remixed and released as the second single from Flavors of Entanglement in North America, while "In Praise of the Vulnerable Man" was released as the second single in Europe.[1]

The studio version first appeared on an October 2007 episode of House and later made a return to primetime television on an October 2008 episode of MTV's The Hills.

The single was released to radio on October 13, 2007.

The song surprisingly charted when the album was released due to downloads of the song, resulting in a position of 22 on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. As of December 2008, the song had already sold 38,000 paid downloads, according to Billboard. The digital downloads also helped the song reach the lower parts of UK Singles Chart (#197) despite the single not being commercially released in the United Kingdom.
