Britney Spears' "Womanizer," the first single from her upcoming Circus, finally hit radio stations this morning before getting uploaded onto YouTube, as evidenced by the video above. The song, with its dark synths and propulsive backbeat, was produced by Atlanta crew the Outsyders. Spears reportedly shot a video for "Womanizer" yesterday at a Los Angeles sushi restaurant, with Brit playing the role of a "vampy waitress." In the meantime, "Womanizer" will make its television debut this Monday on a new episode of MTV's The Hills.

“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."
