Nothing like a little Alanis Morrissette to fuel an angry mood (but in a good way).

I also like Rebel Yell, One Night in Bangkok, Boys Don't Cry, and Sweet Child O'Mine. Oh fine, U Can't Touch This too...

I still can't believe that Alanis dated Dave Coulier (Joey from Full House).

There's a story behind me playing "Rebel Yell" on my show last Friday. A listener called and said that he wanted to hear something upbeat because his girlfriend recently broke up with him. The first song in my next set was going to be "Bringin' On the Heartbreak" by Def Leppard. Since I figured that would be one of the last songs he'd want to hear, I scratched it and played "Rebel Yell" instead.

When I saw your comment about Boys Don't Cry by The Cure, I was reminded of the Robert Smith story that you told me. Help me out... did you dress up as him for Halloween when you were a kid?
