You Oughta Know

“You Oughta Know” is a song by Canadian-American singer Alanis Morissette, released as the lead single from her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1995) on July 7, 1995. After releasing two commercially successful studio albums through MCA Records Canada, Morissette left MCA Records Canada and was introduced to manager Scott Welch. Morissette began working on new music after moving from her hometown of Ottawa to Toronto, but did not make much progress until travelling to Los Angeles, where she met Glen Ballard. Morissette and Ballard co-wrote the song with the latter producing it, while musicians Flea and Dave Navarro of the Red Hot Chili Peppers played bass and guitar on the track.

The song was the first released track that saw Morissette’s departure from bubblegum pop to the alternative rock sound she was later known for. Released to positive reviews from critics, the single managed to outperform the label’s initial expectations. KROQ-FM, an influential Los Angeles modern rock radio station, began playing “You Oughta Know”, leading to the single receiving commercial success, reaching the top ten in Australia and the United States, where it was a multiformat hit in several different genre charts, and making the top forty in Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.

In order to promote the song, an accompanying video was directed by Nick Egan. The single was added in the set list for Morissette’s concert tour, Jagged Little Pill World Tour (1995); since then, it has been included in her albums MTV Unplugged (1999), Feast on Scraps (2002), and The Collection, as well as 1997 Grammys and the MTV Unplugged compilation albums. The song went on to receive numerous accolades; in 1996, the single was nominated for three Grammy Awards, winning the awards for Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.

You Learn

“You Learn” is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette from her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1996). It was written by Morissette and Glen Ballard, who also produced the song and the rest of the studio album. Maverick and Warner Bros. Records released the song as the album’s fifth single. Musically, “You Learn” is a rock-influenced song, that incorporates elements of alternative rock and contemporary pop music. The song speaks of the importance of poor decision making in life by explaining that these decisions can teach valuable lessons.

The song received generally positive reviews from most music critics, many highlighting the song as an album standout. Many also contributed towards the personal lyrical content that was included in the song. The song was a commercial success globally, only charting in North America and the Oceanic regions. A music video was shot for the single, showing Morissette walking through the streets, which could picture daily things that Morissette regrets and makes up for it, similar to the theme of the song’s lyrical content.

Walk Away (Alanis Morissette song)

“Walk Away” is a pop-dance and freestyle song co-written by Alanis Morissette, Leslie Howe, Louise Reny and Frank Levin, and produced by Howe for Morissette’s debut album, Alanis (1991). Its protagonist sends a warning to her boyfriend who “never think[s] twice before [he] break all the rules”, telling him “I’ll walk away and say good bye if you don’t want me anymore … if I don’t get the love we had before”. It was released to radio and television as the album’s second single in 1991 (see 1991 in music), but it was not given a commercial release. The promotional single for the song includes a radio edit only. The song charted at number 35 in Canada. It was also featured in the film Problem Child 2.

“Walk Away” was one of the demo recordings Leslie Howe and Morissette created with keyboardist Serge Côté in the studio, after Howe and her entertainment manager Stephan Klovan had decided to try to secure a record contract for her.[1]

Utopia (Alanis Morissette song)

“Utopia” is a pop rock song written by Alanis Morissette, and produced by her for her fifth album, Under Rug Swept (2002).

The song was partly inspired by Morissette’s experiences during her trips across the world between the recording sessions for Under Rug Swept, and in particular her stay at a Navajo reservation. According to her, “There’s a thread of continuity, subject matter-wise, that permeates not only every trip I take, but every interaction I have”; she said she though the “sense of community the Navajo people really focus on” was similar to the sense of community she felt when touring in the Middle East.”[1]

Morissette said that from the second she wrote it, she knew it would be the final song on the album. “When I think of the album,” she said, “I think about the questions and the conflicts and then the responses and the rebuttals and there’s sort of this crazy little walk through this dynamic, this relationship. And at the end, it has the feminine and the masculine elements, whether that’s taken literally or figuratively. For me, it’s like they’re sitting together in the same car and are finally driving down the same road in the same direction and there’s a meeting of both worlds.”[2]

Originally, the song’s final pre-chorus was to repeat the lyrics from the first pre-chorus. Morissette said, however, that after 9/11, she felt inspired to write another pre-chorus. Given the context in which it was written, that verse stands strongly as arguably the most moving part of the song.
In late September 2001, in response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Morissette previewed “Utopia” on her website. She said she wanted the song to comfort the people who were grieving; according to her, it “sheds light on the willingness to understand” and “the passionate desire to stand up and show a self-care and self-respect”.[3] The Record described “Utopia” as one of the songs on the album that displayed “a soulful introspection and spiritual awareness” appropriate for a “post-9/11 universe”.[4]

Rolling Stone described the song as “a wistful, waltzing vision of a perfectly understanding world … in which Morissette becomes an airy Celtic choir”; it said it “sounds like an eternal group-therapy session”.[5]

“Utopia” was released as a radio-only promotional single in the United States (where it was the third single from the album) in 2003; no music video was released.

Unsent

“Unsent” is a song by Alanis Morissette on her 1998 album, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie. It was released as the album’s third single on March 18, 1999. It was one of the few Junkie tracks on which she played her harmonica. Morissette directed the music video for the song.

Without a chorus or hook, “Unsent” has an unconventional song structure. The lyrics consist of letters addressed to Morissette’s former boyfriends and friends.

Uninvited (song)

“Uninvited” is a song by Canadian-American recording artist and songwriter Alanis Morissette, released as a single from the soundtrack of City of Angels in March 1998, becoming Morissette’s first new recording since her international debut album. After the release of her breakthrough album Jagged Little Pill (1995) Morissette was considered one of the biggest music stars, and many fans anxiously awaited a follow-up album. Morissette wrote the song, whilst the production was handled by Morissette herself and Rob Cavallo. “Uninvited” is driven by four piano notes and builds to an instrumental climax, and haunting atmosphere accompanied by cryptic lyrics.

Underneath (Alanis Morissette song)

“Underneath” is a song recorded for Alanis Morissette’s seventh studio album, Flavors of Entanglement, which was produced by Guy Sigsworth.[2] It is the album’s first single.[3] The song was digitally released on April 15, 2008 after originally being scheduled for March 25. According to Morissette, “‘Underneath’ is about how you can only change the world after you change yourself.”[4]

A music video for “Underneath” was premiered on September 15, 2007 in Los Angeles, as part of the Elevate Film Festival.[5][6] The video was directed by Matt Docter and Ric Frazier[7] and produced by the Docter Twins.[8] The purpose of the festival was to create documentaries, music videos, narratives and shorts regarding subjects to raise the level of human consciousness on the earth.[9] Morissette submitted the song, and then (as with the other fourteen videos) had the music video written, directed, shot and edited in two days. It was released on the internet in January 2008.[10]

An official music video, directed by Sanji, was released on in May 2008.[11] The video is two parallel stories in which a protagonist (both represented by Morissette) tries to change the world. The first vignette follows Alanis as she attempts to hand out fliers promoting positivity and openness. She is rejected by passers by at each turn. Frustrated, she notices a missed call on her cell phone from an apparent ex-love interest. She angrily texts him, “I said don’t call me.” Inside her heart, another Alanis (dressed in red), replays scenes of being frustrated with the love interest, keeping her distance in bed and literally pushing him away when he reaches for her.

During the chorus of the song, the real Alanis seems to realize that the grudges she harbors and the attitudes she holds prevent her from making the world a better place. In essence, she realizes that change “starts in [her] living room,” and that “what we’re doing in [our heart] shows up as bigger symptoms out [in the world].” In accordance with the meaning of the video as a short film, she finds that before she can save the world, she must save herself. She returns home to her apartment, where the walls are covered with hundreds and hundreds of fliers and reminders of the big-picture events she has hypocritically supported without supporting herself. As she tears them off the walls, her heart-bound alias is shown tearing posters off of the heart’s walls, but instead of motivational slogans and promises to better the planet, the posters in the heart read, “I’m fat,” “I’m lonely,” “I avoid taking responsibility,” and more. Symbolically, Morissette tears away the personal insecurities that she has hidden under the guise of major world issues.

At the close of the video, the only poster remaining on the wall of her apartment reads, “Save the Earth.” As she opens the door and embraces her newly reunited boyfriend, the heart parallel embraces him, too, and the poster reads “Save the Heart.”

Too Hot (Alanis Morissette song)

“Too Hot” is a pop-dance and new jack swing song co-written by Alanis Morissette and Leslie Howe, and produced by Howe for Morissette’s debut album, Alanis (1991). It was released as the album’s first single in May 1991 (see 1991 in music).

The song is driven by drum machines, electronic keyboards and a guitar, and Morissette’s brothers Chad and Wade provided some of the backing vocals. In the chorus the song’s protagonist tells a boy aspiring towards a goal that he’s “Always too hot” and “never too cold”, adding that his “best shot” is “too hot to hold”; with this in mind, she urges him to “go for gold”. The fifth chorus is sung almost a cappella. Morissette performs the first part of each verse as a rap, with lyrics describing the consequences of her “baby” achieving his goal. After the first chorus a man’s voice says “I know you gonna dig this … Ch-check this out”, and more men’s voices (one of whom addresses the “party people in the house”) appear during the song’s bridge, in which the backing singers shout for the listener to nonchalantly wave their arms around in the air.

Morissette had independently released a single, “Fate Stay with Me”, in 1985, but “Too Hot” became her mainstream breakthrough in Canada; it reached number 14 on the country’s singles chart, peaked within the top ten on contemporary hit radio and contributed to the success of the album Alanis, which was certified gold during the same period.[1] It is her most popular dance-pop release, and was her biggest hit in Canada until the singles from her international debut album Jagged Little Pill (1995). It was not released elsewhere.

At the 1992 Juno Awards “Too Hot” received a nomination for “Single of the Year”, and the song’s “Hott Shot” remix was nominated in the category of “Best Dance Recording”.

CBC called the song “Paula Abdul-inspired”,[2] and the Arizona Daily Wildcat described it as “cheesy” and “poppy”.[3] “Too Hot”, along with “Feel Your Love” (another song from Alanis) and “An Emotion Away” (from Morissette’s 1992 second album Now Is the Time), was used on the soundtrack of the 1993 film Just One of the Girls, in which Morissette appeared. She performed an acoustic version of the song during her 2005 Jagged Little Pill Acoustic concert tour, introducing the song with the statement “For those 16-year-old days”.[4]

Thank U

“Thank U” is a song by Canadian recording artist and songwriter Alanis Morissette, for her fourth studio album Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie (1998). The song was written by Alanis Morissette and Glen Ballard, who produced her previous album. Morissette wrote the song after she came back from India.

The song received generally positive reviews from music critics and also performed well in the record charts, peaking in the top ten in several countries. An accompanying music video was released for the single, featuring Morissette nude in different streets in Los Angeles. It received generally positive reviews from music critics, but received mild controversy, due to nudity in the video. It was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance at the 2000 Grammy Awards.

That I Would Be Good

“That I Would Be Good” is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette that was first featured on her 1998 album Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie and later an acoustic live version of the song was recorded during a session for MTV Unplugged on September 18, 1999. It was released as a single from the latter album on February 8, 2000.

The lyrics relate Morissette’s intimate feelings about being judged, insecurity and self-doubt, expressing in theme and variation the desire to be sufficient in the face of changing external circumstances. The song received positive reviews from music critics, who praised the flute solo by Morissette and its sweetness. Commercially, the single only charted on Billboard’s Adult Top 40 and the Netherlands Single Top 100.

Surrendering (song)

“Surrendering” is a pop rock song written by Alanis Morissette, and produced by her for her fifth album, Under Rug Swept (2002).

The song was the last Morissette wrote for the album. According to her, it is “about the gratitude that I feel for someone tapping into the courage that it takes to allow themselves to be loved and to … listen to [their fears] and still move through them. And how thrilling it is for me to be able to be let in in that kind of way. And how healing it is ultimately for both the person I’m singing about and myself.” She has described it as “a very peaceful, joyful song”.[1] The subject of “Surrendering” is a man Morissette was dating as of March 2002.[2]

So Unsexy

“So Unsexy” is a pop rock song written by Alanis Morissette, and produced by her for her fifth album, Under Rug Swept (2002). It was released in Brazil as the seventh and final single in November 2003.

According to Morissette, “So Unsexy” “basically speaks of the process of how loving myself can affect everything and change everything. Why when I don’t take care of myself, or love myself or feel connected to my definition of God, everything’s very painful and disjointed and disconnected and … depressing, to be totally honest.”[1] Morissette said that when she wrote the song, she was trying to investigate “the underbelly of some of my insecurities and why little tiny things that are innocuous and inconsequential are translated in my own mind as to be taken so personally. And that has happened and still happens a lot, and while I think it’s very human, it’s exhausting. But as long as I have my own back, it’s not as scary and it’s not as horrifying.”[2]

Receive (song)

“Receive” is a song by Canadian-American recording artist Alanis Morissette, released as the third single from her eighth studio album, Havoc and Bright Lights (2012). The song was written by Morissette and Guy Sigsworth, and produced by Joe Chiccarelli. It is a rock ballad about a relationship in which one person gives more than the other, and the wear it causes to the people involved.

The single was sent to radio airplay on October 12, 2012 in Italy and was released worldwide on December 3, 2012.

Precious Illusions

“Precious Illusions” is a song written, recorded and produced by Alanis Morissette, for her fifth album Under Rug Swept (2002). It released as the album’s second and final international single on 5 August 2002. Its lyrics describe a conflict between idealism and realism, and its protagonist refers to her childhood fancies as “precious illusions” that she has distanced herself from with a feeling that reminds her of “parting with an imaginary friend”.

“Precious Illusions” didn’t receive as much radio airplay in the U.S. as “Hands Clean”, the first single from Under Rug Swept. It peaked within the top 20 on Billboard’s Adult Top 40 chart, but garnered little Top 40 radio play compared to “Hands Clean” and failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. However, it reached number four in Canada and the top ten in Chile. The music video for the song is presented in split screen, offering a side-by-side comparison of the mythic and the real versions of a romantic relationship.

Out Is Through

The song failed to become a hit, despite being marketed heavily outside the US, peaking at #56 in the UK.

There are two music videos for the song. On one of the videos, Morissette appears with her band-mates during a 2004 performance of the song on the UK weekend youth TV show T4, with the album track replacing the audio.[1] The alternate video is about a fan-girl (Anne Vyalitsyna) running and trying to get to Morissette’s different live performances until she finally does.[2]

It was released as the album’s second single in 1993 (see 1993 in music) and was Morissette’s first ballad to be released as a single. It received radio and video play but was not given a commercial release, and it did not cause sales of Now Is the Time to significantly increase.[1] Leslie Howe engineered and mixed the song, and a promotional single for it includes the album version and a radio edit. It did reach number 14 on the Canadian pop chart.

Ironic (song)

“Ironic” is a song by Canadian-American singer Alanis Morissette. It was released in February 1996 as the third single from her third studio album, Jagged Little Pill (1995). It was written by Morissette and Glen Ballard, and was produced by him. “Ironic” is a pop rock song written in the key of B major, and includes a moderate tempo of eighty-two beats per minute. The lyrics present several situations that are described as “ironic”. This has led to debates about whether any of the situations match the accepted meaning of irony.

The track topped the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart for six weeks, and reached the top five in Australia, New Zealand and Norway. In the United States, the song reached number four on April 13, 1996, and currently is her highest-charting single on the Billboard Hot 100. “Ironic” was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The song won the Juno Award for Single of the Year, and received two Grammy Award nominations in 1997, for Record of the Year and Best Short Form Music Video. French director Stéphane Sednaoui filmed the music video. In it, Morissette drives through a winter landscape, and she plays multiple roles as her passengers. MTV nominated the music video for six MTV Video Music Awards in 1996, winning three of them. The music video was listed on VH1’s “Greatest Music Videos” list and was parodied by Allison Rheaume and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

In 2004, Morissette changed the lyrics of “Ironic” to denote her support for same-sex marriage at the fifteenth GLAAD Media Awards. This version was included on her albums iTunes Originals (2004) and Jagged Little Pill Acoustic (2005), and was performed at the House of Blues in 2005, along with Canadian singer Avril Lavigne. “Ironic” was included on the set list of her tour Jagged Little Pill World Tour (1995), and her compilation albums MTV Unplugged (1999), The Collection (2005), among others.

It received positive response from critics, who deemed it for being soft and light. The song became Morissette’s first number-one hit on Billboard’s U.S. Adult Top 40 chart and topped the Top 40 Mainstream chart.

It was written, composed, and produced by Morissette herself, and released as the album’s lead single on 5 February 2002. It is a pop rock song, featuring a shuffling, largely acoustic-rock framework. Lyrically, “Hands Clean” caused controversy, since it is reportedly the singer’s recollection of a forbidden sexual relationship she shared with a much older man when she was approximately 14 years of age.

The song received generally positive reviews from music critics, some of whom immediately chose the track as an album standout compared to some of her previous material. “Hands Clean” did well through the charts. The song peaked at number 23 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The song also peaked at number three on the U.S. Adult Top 40 and topped the charts in New Zealand (Morissette’s first number one – and, to date, her last single to appear on the New Zealand charts) and Canada.

The song received positive reviews from music critics, with most of them praising her return and commending its freshness and brightness. The music video was released on July 27, 2012 and it shows Morissette singing on a Berlin rooftop equipped with a set of angel wings and eventually brightens the children and parents she is watching over.

The song was a moderate success in some countries, peaking inside the top 20 on the Austrian and Switzerland charts, while reaching number 41 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart and charting on the Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs chart.

Everything (Alanis Morissette song)

“Everything” is a pop/rock song written by Alanis Morissette and released as the first single from her sixth studio album, So-Called Chaos.

The song was featured in the 2006 film Clerks II, and is included on the soundtrack. The song was also used as one of the sample music that was included inside Windows XP Media Center Edition in 2005.

A heavily edited version of the song was released to radio stations for airplay on February 23, 2004.[1] The radio version removed over 60 seconds of the track by taking the first two lines from the first section of a verse and placing it together with the last two lines from the second section of the verse, effectively removing a whole verse from the album version. The video version of the track endured further edits, with the replacing of the word “asshole” in the opening line to “nightmare.”[2]

Upon release in the US, the song received considerable support and airplay from alternative and adult radio stations, peaking within the top 5 and spending 26 non-consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Adult Top 40 chart.[3] Mainstream pop and rock radio stations were less supportive of the track. The song entered Billboard’s main Hot 100 chart at #76, a position it would hold for four weeks, spending a total of nine non-consecutive weeks on the chart.[4] The physical video-enhanced single, however, remains one of the most successful of Morissette’s recording career, being certified 4× Platinum by the RIAA on September 30, 2004 for shipment of over 200,000 copies.[5]

The song also peaked within the top 20 of the Canadian, Australian, Italian, Austrian and Norwegian singles charts.

Eight Easy Steps

“Eight Easy Steps” is a rock song written by Alanis Morissette for her sixth studio album, So-Called Chaos. The album’s opening track, it was released in 2004 as the So-Called Chaos’s third single. The song may be seen as discussing self-help, with the message that it is the “course of a lifetime”,[1] but the help that is actually “offered” in the song is tongue-in-cheek, with lines like “How to lie to yourself and thereby to everyone else” and “How to control someone to be a carbon copy of you.”

The song reached number nine on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play and number 27 on the Adult Top 40.[2]

All I Really Want (Alanis Morissette song)
