'You Oughta Know' when a song is about you by the lyrics.

Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill album came out in 1995. One song, 'You Oughta Know' became one of the most popular and not only because the song rocked itself, but also because of the rumors that followed it.

As most of you all have heard, this song has long been rumored to be about comedian / actor Dave Coulier from Full House. Alanis has kept quiet about the truth, as Coulier has said in several interviews that he thinks its about him.

Morissette and Coulier dated back in the 90s, after that he called her and asked her, "Look, what do you want me to say to the media when these folks call me?" She responded "You can say whatever you want."

Later on, she telephoned him and he said, "Hey, you know, I'm right in the middle of dinner. Can I just call you right back?"

So when he heard to the song and that line came on ... he knew:

I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner.

I don't know about you all, but I either don't answer my phone while I'm eating and if I do it better be important!!

 

 

Maybe Taylor Swift should take some tips from Alanis on how a 'true' break up song goes!
