Lindsay Lohan

A Little More Personal (Raw)

As the title suggests, Lindsay Lohan makes a fatal mistake on her second album: She tries to, like, express herself. The album de-emphasizes the (very) guilty pop pleasures of her 2004 debut in favor of leaden I-hate-you-Daddy laments such as "Confessions of a Broken Heart" and "My Innocence." Lohan has a much bigger — though less distinctive — voice than her sometime-pal Ashlee Simpson, but she sounds like a high school talent-show winner on the album's two classic-rock covers: a sprightly take on "I Want You to Want Me" and a karaoke-faithful version of "Edge of Seventeen."

    “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."
