Album of the Day
SONG OF THE DAY - "You Oughta Know"
Alanis Morissette had seen success as a teen pop star in her native Canada, but when "You Oughta Know" hit the airwaves in 1995, it announced a complete change of direction. Produced and co-written by Glen Ballard, the track was a ferocious blast of alternative rock, with Heartbreaker Benmont Tench and Red Hot Chili Peppers Dave Navarro and Flea backing Morissette as she eviscerates an ex-lover. The Top 10 hit paved the way for the phenomenal success of the singer-songwriter's JAGGED LITTLE PILL album, and went on to win Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. An anthem of catharsis, empowerment and reinvention, "You Oughta Know" is our Song of the Day.
