Mark Ronson was one of five influential DJs and producers asked by the Grammys and the Re:Generation Music Project to take a specific genre and record a new track within that style with a collection of high-profile collaborators. For Ronson's track, titled "A La Modeliste," he teamed up with Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Trombone Shorty, members of the Dap Kings and drummer Zigaboo Modeliste for a dynamic, hip-hop accented take on jazz. You can check out that track below.

All five remixers who participated in the project – Ronson, DJ Premier, Skrillex, the Crystal Method and Pretty Lights – will discuss how they made their tracks in a documentary due in February 2012 on YouTube.

“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."
