A segment of the modern audience insists on interpreting the lyrics of pop songs written in the first person literally (see the legend about Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight” for a prime example) and assuming that the accounts described therein must reflect the personal experiences of the singers.(The latter perhaps fostered by the trend that began in the 1960s of pop musicians’ writing their own material rather than relying upon the efforts of commercial songwriters.) When Mary Mac Gregor hit the charts with “Torn Between Two Lovers” in 1976, for example, far too many fans assumed she must really have been involved in relationships with two different men at the same time (even though the song was not written by Mac Gregor, but was in fact was penned by two men, Peter Yarrow and Phil Jarrel), and listeners spent years trying to guess whom Carly Simon had in mind when she wrote “You’re So Vain.” It was inevitable, then, that Alanis Morissette’s vitriolic 1995 song “You Oughta Know” (from her huge-selling third album, Jagged Little Pill) would trigger gossip about the identity of the ex-lover savaged in the lyrics for moving on so quickly: I haven’t heard from him, and I don’t think he knows.
They might do well to steer clear of infamous wife-beater Ike Turner, or paedophilic double wife-murderer Jerry Lee Lewis, however.
On the comment that it started a "copy cat faze of angry women singers." Alanis did not start that phase, nor would she claim to have.
