Dave Coulier reveals first thoughts of ex Alanis’ ‘You Oughta Know’

He didn’t know what mess he was making when he left.

It wasn’t until Dave Coulier listened to ex-Alanis Morissette’s entire album “Jagged Little Pill” in 1995 that he realized he might have “really hurt” the singer.

On Tuesday’s episode of SiriusXM Faction Talk, the “Full House” star says he was driving in Detroit when he first heard Morissette’s vengeful heartbreak “You Oughta Know”—which has long been rumored to be about him—on the radio. heard.

The comedian, now 62, really enjoyed the song before recognizing the singer’s famous voice and thinking to himself, “Ooh, oh no! Oh, I can’t be this man!”

After listening to just that one song, Coulier quickly found a record store to purchase the album. He walked to his car, parked on any street, and listened to the album from start to finish.

“There were a lot of familiar things in there that she and I had talked about,” Coulier said. “Like [in ‘Right Through you’] “your shake is like a fish.” I’d say, “Hey, dead fish me,” and we’d do this dead fish handshake. And so I started listening to it and I thought, ‘Ooh, I think I really hurt this woman.’ And that was my first thought.”

Morissette and Coulier started dating in 1992 when the singer was 18 and the funny man 33. The couple broke up after two years, and the “Ironic” singer released the Grammy-winning album just a year later.

But Coulier isn’t the only man who thinks the infamous song is about him, and Morissette plans to keep it that way.

“Don’t reveal,” Morissette, 48, told Andy Cohen in 2019. “But I’m intrigued by the thought — or the fact — that more than one person has taken credit. I guess, I don’t know if you want the credit.” claim for the person I wrote ‘You Oughta Know’ about.”

She continued, “I just think, if you take credit for a song where I’m singing about someone being an asshole or an a–hole, you might not want to say, ‘Hey! That’s me!'”

While the two disagreed on many things, they certainly agree. In 2014, Coulier told Buzzfeed that “the guy in that song is a real a-hole, so I don’t want to be that guy.”

Since their breakup, the pair have made amends with Coulier, referring to the singer as “funny, sweet, super intelligent and super talented”.
