In the Seventies, James Taylor and Carole King practically invented the sensitive singer-songwriter. Nearly four decades after first singing together onstage at L.A.'s Troubadour, the pair returned in 2007 for three nights of concerts to adoring audiences, performing note-for-note renditions of their classics: Taylor's sweet lament 'Fire and Rain' and wistful 'Carolina in My Mind,' King's brooding hit ballad 'So Far Away' and an acoustic version of her Sixties girl-group standard 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow.' It's a nostalgia fest, but a good one.

    “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."
