Uncle Joey, I Mean Dave Coulier, Responds To Alanis Morissette’s Song “You Oughta Know”

“The Alanis [Morissette] I know is really fun to be around and really thoughtful and sweet. I think there’s a lot of things in Jagged Little Pill that are very deep and fueled by her interactions with a lot of people. At the time we were dating, she was writing a lot of music, and I was a newly divorced, single father with a two-year old son. She was living in Ottawa, Canada and I was living in Los Angeles. It was a tough time for me and a lot of distance for a budding relationship. I’ll always think of her as a really great person. As far as being the so-called subject of ‘You Oughta Know’…I’ll just let the urban legend folks keep spinning on that one.”

— Oh, Uncle Joey, why do you deny “You Oughta Know” is about you? Dave Coulier totally admitted in a 2008 interview with the Calgary Sun the song is about him. Dave told the paper then, “I said, ‘Wow, this girl is angry [when he first heard the song while driving].’ And then I said, ‘Oh man, I think it’s Alanis.’ I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, ‘I think I have really hurt this person.’” Hey, I guess she really was there to remind him of the mess he left when he went away. [Flavorwire]
