When I first heard that Britney Spears covered the Alanis scorned girl classic “You Oughta Know” I was a little skeptical of how awesomery it would turn out. I thought it might be too heavy for her voice. But then I listened and she really did a great job with it. I think the reason is because she really gets the rage in it. Britney’s songs may be all sweet and poppy, but anyone who has been keeping up with her in the past two or three years knows she’s had her fair share of problems and has had time to be angry.
You can listen for yourself after the jump. What do you guys think? Did Britney nail it or completely butcher it?
And yes, there is some type of pre-recorded backing vocal but everything else sounds completely live.
