Twenty years later, we're still head over feet for Alanis Morissette's 1995 blockbuster.
1. "You Oughta Know" is about the bravery in bluntness
"You Oughta Know" keeps raising the bar on its own scathing candor as it progresses. You think Alanis has given you everything by referencing oral sex in a theater, but she increases the stakes by mentioning that time she interrupted her ex-lover's dinner with (presumably) an emotional, perhaps hysterical phone call. But then she throws everything on the table with the bluntest, most jilted question in all of pop music: "And are you thinking of me when you f*ck her?" She's distilled every resentful pang in her body into one searing moment, and it is fearsome.
