Michael Jackson, 'Bad'

Michael Jackson's blockbuster album Bad will be reissued in a deluxe edition on September 18th to mark the record's 25th anniversary. The set, titled Bad 25, will features three CDs, a DVD and two booklets. The DVD will include Jackson's personal video recording of his performance at Wembley Stadium in London on July 16th, 1988. The video will be the first full concert performance from the Bad tour to be commercially released, and will be seen without cuts, exactly as it played out on stage before an audience of 72,000 fans, including Princess Diana.

A CD featuring professionally recorded audio from the Wembley concert will also be included, along with a remastered version of the original Bad album. A third CD will feature previously unreleased demos of songs that did not make it to the album, along with new remixes of material from Bad. A standard edition of the Bad reissue will also be released, including the remastered album and unreleased material, but omitting the Wembley performance.

“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."
