Say Anything's new single "So Good" is an atypically romantic number for the emo rockers, but as much as the song showcases the tender side of songwriter Max Bemis, it's still full of self-deprecating one-liners and romantic angst. "I wanted to write a song that's both a lovelorn ballad and a subtle encapsulation of the theme of breaking down boundaries found throughout the record," says Bemis. "It just so happens that the boundaries in this song are internal." Say Anything's latest album Anarchy, My Dear will be in stores on March 13th, but you can download "So Good" for free here.

“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."
