Tuesday Guilty Pleasure


Welcome, one and all, to yet another spectacular installment of Tuesday Guilty Pleasure, where I bravely go where no man has gone before and tell you about something I love that I really, really shouldn't.
This week we're going to take it back to the '90s with some angry chick music (I mean no offense to any ladies in the audience when I use the word "chick"). My mom had this CD when I was growing up and I could sing along to every word, even if I didn't quite understand what it all meant. Now that I get it, I still sing along to every song, just only when I'm alone. 


That's right, I know almost every word to Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morisette. I have to admit that I definitely like angry Alanis much more than I like the happy-go-lucky version, even though her version of "My Humps" is classic. There's just so much passion in the lyrics of this song I can't help but belt it out whenever it comes on. 
Fun fact: I heard on the radio this morning that this song ("You Oughta Know") was rumored to be written about her failed relationship with Dave Coulier from the show "Full House." Not sure how true the rumor is, but it will definitely make you look at the song differently, especially since he is almost 15 years older than her.

I think that rumor is pretty true, because I have heard it several different times over the years. And awesome guilty pleasure--I love this cd!

I'm glad that someone else has heard about this. I had no clue! And it's a really frightening mental picture, especially since I've heard rumors that this was going on when she was 16 and he was 31. Awkward...

Yeesh! Supa skeevy, if you ask me.

On a side note: Corey Inscoe, you have single-handedly saved Tuesday from obscurity in the minds of the American people. For generations it was simply the day between Monday (the beginning of the workweek, a day to be dreaded) and Wednesday (hump day, if you will). Nothing special, with nothing to look forward to or distinguish it from any other day. Now, however, we have..TUESDAY'S GUILTY PLEASURE!

You should get an award or something,

Haha, thanks Anna. I do my best to change mundane days for the better. No longer will Tuesday dwell in obscurity.
And be sure to get back to me about that award...
