Exclusive Audio: Metric Offers an Orchestral Take on Buffalo Springfield

Today, listen to an exclusive preview of Toronto quartet Metric's iTunes session (on iTunes tomorrow), which will feature eight new tracks. The session includes an interview with the band plus the new songs, most of them featuring alternate arrangements. Some of the new versions are stripped-down and acoustic, but other tracks — like their gorgeous, melancholy take on Buffalo Springfield’s “Expecting to Fly” — expand the band’s usual musical palette with the addition of a string quartet.

“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."
