Today, I noticed a trending keyword You oughta know at Google trends and decided to might as well blog about it. The keyword or key phrase is actually a song of Alanis Morissette which was one of her hits way back late 90's. Alanis was then one of my favorite female rock artists until now. A lot of people at my age knows her well (particularly those who like alternative/rock music).

Know more about Alanis Morissette.

Watch her live performance of You Oughta Know during the 30th Grammy Awards. You can also watch Britney Spears' and Beyonce Knowles cover of the song You oughta know.

I want you to know, that I'm happy for you
I wish nothing but the best for you both
An older version of me
Is she perverted like me
Would she go down on you in a theatre
Does she speak eloquently
And would she have your baby
I'm sure she'd make a really excellent mother

'cause the love that you gave that we made wasn't able
To make it enough for you to be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you'd hold me
Until you died, till you died
But you're still alive

And I'm here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It's not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

You seem very well, things look peaceful
I'm not quite as well, I thought you should know
Did you forget about me Mr. Duplicity
I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced
Are you thinking of me when you fuck her?

'cause the love that you gave that we made wasn't able
To make it enough for you to be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you'd hold me
Until you died, til you died
But you're still alive

And I'm here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It's not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

'cause the joke that you laid on the bed that was me
And I'm not gonna fade
As soon as you close your eyes and you know it
And every time I scratch my nails down someone else's back
I hope you feel it...well can you feel it

Well, I'm here to remind you
Of the mess you left when you went away
It's not fair to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
You, you, you oughta know

Gusto ko rin si Alanis. May cassette tape pa nga ako dati nung Jagged Little Pill nia. Gusto ko ung Ironic at Hand in My Pocket dito.

Kaya lang nung mga sumunod na albums nia, pangit na ang mga kanta.

The best album nya talaga para sa akin yung Jagged Little Pill. Yung sumunod na mga album, medyo naging ballad na siya eh gaya nung Thank You, Your House. Pero nagustuhan ko pa rin yung mga songs nya in general.

Dami na ring sumunod sa kanya nung sumikat siya diba? Sina Nathalie Imbruglia, Shawn Colvin, Paula Cole at iba pa.

Ayaw ko pag cover ni Britney sa kantang ito hehe.
