This is exciting rock archaeology: two CDs of the best British band most Yanks never heard in the Sixties, caught at a heavy-psychedelia peak on its only U.S. tour. The Move were almost too cool for America, a U.K.-hit-single machine of mod-squad assault, acid-pop eccentricity and, in singer Carl Wayne, white-soul force. These October '69 shows combine guitarist-composer Roy Wood's ingenious takes on madness – "I Can Hear the Grass Grow," "Cherry Blossom Clinic (Revisited)" – with explosive Nazz, Byrds and Tom Paxton covers that will make you wish you'd been there and glad that tape was running.

Listen to "Cherry Blossom Clinic (Revisited)":

    “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."
