I JUST heard an Alanis song on the radio the other day (sadly, not "You Oughta Know") and it immediately transported me back to the days of blasting her music with my college dorm window open because my ex-boyfriend's best friends lived in the unit below me. I was so angry at him for dumping me for a new girl he met in class and wanted them all to know it.

Thank you for writing this. I absolutely felt empowered by blasting Alanis' music.
