“Glad You Came”

The Wanted | 2011

The Wanted timed the release of this single with what they hoped was the perfect season to debut this light-hearted tune. "When we first heard 'Glad You Came' we just knew it had to be the first single from the new album," band member Tom Parker said. "We all felt it was a new, refreshing sound and a perfect song for the summer which really gets you in the mood for a party." The song was also featured in the third season of the TV show, "Glee."

“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."
