Swedish House Mafia's Steve Angello and producer/songwriter Jacques Lu Cont have teamed up to remix "Soothe My Soul" from Depeche Mode's latest effort, Delta Machine. While Depeche Mode's original was a harrowing cut that moved along in a lurching blues vein, the two electronic music whizzes transform its syncopated beat into a commanding four-on-the-floor, building a stadium-sized rager from the track's guttural guitars, sparkling synths and frontman Dave Gahan's repeated proclamation, "There's only one way to soothe my soul."

Angello was thrilled by the experience. "Depeche Mode and Jacques Lu Cont are heroes to me, so when the opportunity came, there was not a single doubt in my mind," he enthuses to Rolling Stone.

“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."
