Michel Gondry could be the Rem Koolhaas of music video. Like the Dutch architect, Gondry devises ideas and technique that are never merely modern. For Bjork, Gondry shoots forests dominated by stuffed animals; for the White Stripes, he's high design, but with Legos; for Daft Punk, he stages a variety show with robots. Books could be written about Gondry's pieces, but this former drummer remains a rock & roller at heart. Invariably, his videos are visual invitations to bang your head.

    “You Oughta Know”

    Alanis Morissette | 1995

    This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
