Bruce Springsteen Heads to Swing States For Three Obama Concerts

October 2, 2008 12:22 PM ET

With the presidential election only a month way, Bruce Springsteen is taking his support of Barack Obama to the swing states with three more shows benefiting the Democrat. First, Springsteen will travel to Philadelphia for an acoustic set at an open-air rally this Saturday, October 4th. Springsteen will then head to Columbus, Ohio to play the Ohio State University campus on Sunday, the 5th. Bruce will then conclude his odyssey through the purple states on Monday, October 6th, with a performance at Eastern Michigan University. Tickets for all three concerts can be had by visiting either Campaign for Change offices in the respective areas or heading over to Obama's website. Like Jay-Z's Obama-inspired concerts this weekend in Detroit and Miami, the shows are a reminder to potential voters that the voter registration deadline is October 6th. In addition to this weekend's performances, as previously announced, Springsteen will join Billy Joel at an Obama benefit concert at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom on October 16th.

“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."
