Alanis Morissette dropped a 'Bridgerton' version of 'You Oughta Know' and we have goosebumps

All romantic turmoil calls for Alanis Morissette. 'Bridgerton' understood the assignment

All lovesick women, Kate Sharma included, appreciate Alanis Morissette. Bridgerton decided to celebrate the alternative queen and give her famous ballad a Regency-era remix. 

"You Oughta Know," which perhaps takes the cake for the best breakup songs of the 90s, scales back its angst and replaces its grunge-esque aesthetic with strings and a tamer tempo. Honestly, is there a better track to represent the tension in this Bridgerton love triangle? We didn't think so, either. 

The Netflix romance blessed viewers and listeners with an entirely new sound for the Jagged Little Pill hit, and we haven't stopped playing it since it was released. 

Alanis Morissette 'Bridgerton' version of 'You Oughta Know'

"And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me
You'd hold me until you died"

THE FEELINGS! SO MANY FEELINGS!

Morissette plays the simplified rendition of "You Oughta Know" with the help of Duomo and Kroma Strings. 

While you're watching the enemies-to-lovers romance blossom between Kate (Simone Ashley) and Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey), this famous song perfectly captures the "will they, won't they" thoughts racing through your mind. (Sorry Edwina, you truly didn't stand a chance.) 

The Bridgerton season 2 soundtrack also puts a classical spin on other popular tracks, including "Sign of the Times" by Harry Styles (performed by Steve Horner) and "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus (performed by Midnight Street Quartet), to name a select few. 

You've undoubtedly found yourself rewinding plenty of times throughout the sophomore season—how else were you supposed to appreciate the iconic Bridgerton lake scene?!—so allow us to tell you where to find "You Oughta Know." In episode 5, while our favorite Viscount is having a think in the tub and Kate is out riding a horse to clear her mind, you'll hear the '90s anthem play in the background. 

"I chose all of these songs for very specific reasons. Each one is incredibly powerful and deeply emotional in its own special way," Bridgerton showrunner Chris Van Dusen told Tudum before the season premiere. 

We're going to petition for Alanis to be included in every season from here on out.
