Country legend Willie Nelson recorded this rendition of Pearl Jam's gentle ballad "Just Breathe" for his latest album, Heroes. Nelson performs the song as a duet with his son Lukas. The arrangement doesn't stray far from Pearl Jam's original recording on 2009's Backspacer, but Nelson adds a touch of harmonica and a light country twang to the meditative folk pop tune. Heroes will be in stores on May 15th, but you can hear Nelson's "Just Breathe" today.

“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."
