Alanis Morissette Joins Taylor Swift On Stage To Duet ‘You Oughta Know’ [Video]

Before there was Taylor Swift, there was Alanis Morissette. Decades before Taylor became everyone’s favorite break-up singer, Alanis introduced a new form of angry rock in the mid-1990s. Last night in Los Angeles, Swift paid tribute to Morissette and joined her in a duet of her classic song, “You Oughta Know.”

Entertainment Weekly quoted Taylor’s gushing introductory speech.

“She defined the music of her decade. She inspired a generation of confessional female singer-songwriters who all of a sudden felt like you could actually say these raw feelings that you had. You could actually sing about your real life, you could put detail to it, you could get really, really mad if you wanted to. And I think it’s fair to say that so many of the female singer-songwriters of my generation, including myself, would not write the way that we do without her and her music. And she has written some of the most brilliant music – in particular probably inarguably the greatest breakup song of all-time.”
