Artists joyfully swarmed Twitter last night after President Barack Obama sealed up a second term with a victory over Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Some kept it simple, like Bruno Mars and Rihanna, while others like Katy Perry, Pete Wentz and will.i.am were gripped by inspiration. Adam Lambert and Fun. were thrilled for marriage equality in Washington, Maryland and Maine, while Lady Gaga was particularly psyched for Colorado's legalization of marijuana. Others were lighthearted with jokes: comedian Aziz Ansari quipped about Romney's concession, Mark Ronson and Ludacris remixed the latter's "Move Bitch" for comedic effect, and Questlove and Maroon 5's Adam Levine made humorous references to Romney's now viral Big Bird comment in the first presidential debate. It's time for four more years.

“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."
