I thought that Til Tuesday was pretty good. They were an example of a good 80's pop sound. It's a shame people only remember them for Voices Carry. And Aimee's hair, I guess.

I loved "What About Love" a few years later.

But the Voices Carry cassette got quite a workout in my college days. Every tune sounded great in the car, driving around wasted.

Phil Collins? That may be one of the few scenarios where I could justify the booing. I cannot stand him.

by Anonymousreply 1807/24/2010

I liked her. She seemed a little shy. Also funny and smart and very focused on her career and having commercial success. This was before Voices Carry really hit. She's worked very hard for the success she's had. I don't know for sure, but I got the feeling around her that she didn't come from a lot of money and having some financial stability was important to her. I'm not saying she's a craven gold digger, because that definitely wasn't my impression of her, just that she wanted to be sure of a roof over her head and food in the refrigerator, and she thought the band might be her route to that.%0D %0D I just googled her height and found reports of 5'11 1/2 all over the web. lol.

OP, thank you for making this thread.

Also, I'm wondering if any information has really surfaced about her family and background. Like her upbringing and stuff.

I do know that she said she went to a dangerous school and that she and her brothers were harassed and bullied badly and she would hide out in rooms in the school.

And she's had a dating pattern of all hideous men. She seems a bit troubled, maybe neglectful parents or something.

Of course it's just a rumor about the brother, but I'd like to see what her siblings and parents look like too. I think it's always fun to see the families of celebrities, it helps make them seem less distant.

It's amazing how many untalented people make it purely on hype, whether it be musicians, actors/actresses and fine artists.

I always wonder about a remarkable songwriter or a band toiling away in some dive bar because they simply can't get their music heard or in the hands of the right people at record companies. Yet nasally whiners like Aimee Mann get famous?

Her music is so damn depressing, add a too-cool-for-the-room personality and I really don't get her appeal at all. She conveys no emotion other than being depressed.

When she performs on talk shows and the host comes over at the end, she's emotionless, no smile towards the host, no nothing, she's got that weird ice princess stare going on, apparently all the time. I find her insufferable.

Then I hear some of her new stuff, like Save Me and i am reminded of her brilliance. She is depressing but very talented. I know she comes across as above it all but the reality of it, she is pretty much above it all. She has released her own music and had success doing her own thing while rejecting the uber commercialism of the modern music industry. Good for her.

She has said that when she was growing up, she was always a tomboy doing things like climbing trees. She was the only girl in the family and was used to being around boys. And no, I am not implying that she is gay or bi.

She's straight for chrissake. Aimee's always gotten along great with guys. In fact she's more comfortable around guys. So women mistrust her and she knows it. That's where "Voices Carry" comes from.

Also, she's not a druggie. Quite the opposite. She's been very supportive of friends who go into recovery. Much of "Lost in Space" was inspired Paul Thomas Anderson; their friendship ended over his cocaine abuse.

'Voices Carry' was about her recent breakup with her boyfriend who was also in the band. The gender was originally changed to protect the innocent. The label felt the song would be more commercial if she punished the guilty. Say what you will about conglom-rock, they were right.

I have absolutely no idea if she's a lesbian or a druggie, but it is common for artists to write things besides autobiography. Even songwriters.

"Nobody else is bothered by the fact that he%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%99s threatening violence over some passing comment that some singer made about him on Twitter? Seriously?"

And many people on the internet are supporting him and think that what he said was cool. Am I in the twilight zone or something? Why is he getting this type of a 'pass' and even support?

"Til Tuesday got kicked off their label for low sales. She married into a Hollywood Dynasty and had enough dough from doing so to start her own record label."

Hollywood Dynasty? Really? Sean Penn has the money, not her husband Michael, what did he have like one semi hit song?

Are you saying Aimee Mann got money from Sean Penn to start her own label, just marrying Michael Penn simply guaranteed that Sean Penn would give her money? What bullshit.

It's actually not all that difficult to start a small label, you simply start producing your own CDs.

You sell them through your website, sell them mail order. She's already an established musician, so her core fan base knows who she is, she doesn't even need to promote herself. Of course, she can still go through the motions of sending the CDs to magazines, TV talk show producers, radio stations etc.

Blank CDs are cheap enough, then you find a place to mass produce them, a print house to do the insets etc. She probably has tons of connections to graphic design people for her CD artwork. Bottom line: it doesn't take much money to produce your own CDs.

I doubt she needed "Hollywood Dynasty" money to start her own label.

I think artists like Mann make most of the money touring. I can't imagine that her record sales are high enough these days to make her "rich." I mean, the whole record sales business has suffered in the last ten years. Many artist sell their music directly to their fans on their web sites. For some of them it means complete creative freedom and an immediate report with the people who like their music. It's the most honest give and take that there is out there right now.

I don't know how you folks who are still ardent fans of hers can do it. I have seen Aimee live more times than I can count, from the til tuesday days through whatever that album was about the boxer and junkies. I mean, she used to nervously wait on me when she was a clerk at the original Newbury Comics, so my experience with her goes way back. "Welcome Home" is still one of my all-time favorite albums. I've seen her play on store roofs in Kenmore Square, in clubs, in theaters, on city hall plaza, in a boat in the middle of a lagoon outside of a mall in Cambridge.

But now? EEEEeesh. I finally had to admit that objectively, Aimee is the only performer I have ever known who has managed to become a worse singer as time as gone by. Most people who play out over a lifetime pick up tricks and strategies that make them stronger. But not Aimee. She now sings so nasally that the words are indecipherable to people who don't already know them. And nowadays she's so soporific, it's awful.

The last time I saw a good Aimee Mann concert was one of the Acoustic Vaudeville shows with her husband Michael Penn and emcee Patton Oswalt, not long after Magnolia. The juxtaposition of their styles and Oswalt's humor made for a fulfilling evening. The last time I saw her, though, was a free outdoor show for that boxing junkie album and all the songs sounded like each other. Between songs at one point she said, "Well.... things have gone from bad to worse for our hero..." and my friends and I took that as our cue to leave.

Unlistenable, uninspired, unalive.

First - I adore Aimee Mann.

I'm still going to tell this story. She was a wacky chick in mid 80s. She was living in Brookline and I was managing an upscale pizza place.

For months on end she would come everyday and order the same the thing. She must had done this at least 35 days in row. Artichokes, ricotta on whole wheat. She was like clock work. 5 pm everyday.

Even on my days off - I would see her walking down my street with a pizza box from my restaurant.

She would go away for a few weeks and come back and then order a different combo pizza. It would start again for weeks on end and always at 5 pm.

I just assumed she had OCD and an eating disorder.

by Anonymousreply 19708/02/2010

r197 - she was extremely shy. I think it was slightly embarrassing for her. She had to realize that it was odd to be ordering the same thing day after day after. Those artichokes must have been her cocaine.

I felt bad for her and a little protective. The staff would always joke about her and I would tell them to shut up. Frankly she was our best customer. One day for lunch she actually came in and sat down. She was with a suit type guy.

When she finally made it - I was so happy for her. She had a very sweet way about her.

Thanks r198, very informative post. I always suspected that she was very shy instead of cold, but it was hard to tell for sure.

I can't believe this whole thread is about Aimee Mann. In any case, I saw her act in a play called "Good Morning Miss Dove" when she was a junior at my high school (although I was still in junior high at the time). She played Miss Dove. In her senior year she transferred out to some magnet school in the city (this was in suburban Richmond, Virginia). She seemed very tall to me even at that age. She's just very angular. I remember she had a brother who was equally blond and gigantically tall.

1. saw Aimee Mann at a solo show at City Winery in NYC about 2 years ago. sold out though smallish, initmate venue. crowd ranged from early thirties to late fifties or thereabouts. show was fantastic - she was a committed performer, was not phoning it in. played from her entire catalogue.%0D %0D 2. was in Mt. Snow Vermont about 2 1/2 years ago (southwest corner of the state), after dinner we were in a little bar next to a resteraunt on the main highway through the town (do not recall the name). about 25 total people there drinking. not a dive - kind of a classy place for the area. in the corner, a duo were playing the piano and electric guitar, the piano player singing. we gravitated over there because they were quite good. one of the locals leaned over to me and told me that the guitarist was the gut from Til Tuesday. my group starting conferring because HE STILL LOOKS LIKE A WOMAN!!!! once we remembered that point, we were more than ready to believe it was him. they started to take requests and we ended the evening with the whole bar rocking out and singing several Stones tunes and Stairway to Heaven. when i got back to the city i googled him and found out that he does in fact live in Vermont and it was probably him!! whole thing totally surreal.%0D %0D 3. i believe Aimee Mann did collaborate with Elvis Costello at some point. At The Other End of The Telescope appears on both Elivs Costello and Aimee Mann albums, performed by each. just googled it - they wrote it together.

by Anonymousreply 26111/09/2011

Sounds like her shyness may have been from being picked on:

"Born August 9, 1960, Aimee Mann has come a long way since her childhood days in Richmond, Virginia. At the age of 4, Aimee's mother kidnapped her and took her to England, where she spent the year away from her father and brothers.

When she finally returned to Virginia at the age of 5, she grew up the only girl in the family, outnumbered by her father, brothers and stepbrothers (her mother did not return to live with the family, and it took years for Aimee to reconcile with her).

Aimee's tomboyish, yet sexy looks can be attributed to her all-male surroundings. The future punk star had trouble fitting in while in junior high, where her and her brothers attended an inner-city school, and were an evident minority in the school hallways.

After having to hide out in the school library and being tormented in school, her family relocated to the suburbs. The Midlothian High School 1978 grad was already beginning to think about her career goals, which always had something to do with the arts. She started out with painting and drawing, but then decided to turn to music."

I was in National Record Mart in 1995, I believe -- it may have been '96 -- and they were playing the just-released album I'm With Stupid. "That's Just What You Are" was the song playing. I asked the clerk what it was, bought it, took it home and every single song was good. I was a teenager at the time and thought I was so cool. I still remember that album as being really catchy with great lyrics, but if I played it now (it's been at least a decade since I've heard it) I'm sure I'd find it boring.

Her lyrics, when they bug the shit out of me, seem like exercises in cleverness. Clever rhymes, words that you don't usually hear in songs, metaphors that are beaten to death. A lot of 3rd-person narrative, too, which is weird and not very engaging. But maybe it's just me. Her arrangements and production are often too "exquisite" as well.

Not surprising that Penn is a nice guy. I don't think he's ugly either.

Those of you--or is it just one of you?--suggesting that she married into money so she could record her music are morons who probably don't know much about music or about Aimee Mann.

I posted this awhile ago in one of the rock gossip threads here. A former work colleague, we were actually friends for awhile before she moved across the country, was married to a jazz drummer. His band happened to be opening for for Aimee's band during a brief tour. IIRC, this was during the early or mid 90s.

The drummer is a very nice guy and an extremely talented drummer. He's played with some very famous people in jazz and rock. He simply went in to say 'Hello' to Aimee and her band before the first gig his band was doing with her.

My friend was mortified how horrible Aimee had treated her husband. As he approached Aimee, she coldly started him down, then after he introduced himself and extended his hand, she completely ignored him and continued to stare and give him a disgusted look. Aimee did not utter one word to him.

My friend suggested to her husband that they go back to his band's dressing room, because Aimee didn't seem to want to be bothered.

It wasn't as if the drummer simply walked in, someone involved with Aimee's band happily let him. He was a quiet guy and not aggressive at all.

From what I've hear about Aimee Mann over the years, she seems mentally disturbed. If you don't want to be bothered, you can at the very least be polite, shake someone's hand, then tell them you are too busy to chat, but to not respond AT ALL to the drummer and not say anything, points to some mental problems.

Meanwhile, the drummer had later toured with Lea DeLaria's backup band and he said Lea was a riot and very cool to him and the rest of her band.

It appears besides having mental issues, Aimee Mann is a pretentious phony baloney with a very high opinion of herself and her 'talent'.

She continued to be cold to the drummer and his band during the rest of the short tour. If she felt threatened by the drummer's band, then I know IS mentally ill. The drummer's band's music couldn't be more different from the depressing sludge Aimee does.

Why a fusion jazz band (think Weather Report/Jaco Pastorious/John McLaughlin) were booked to open for her band in the first place, who the hell knows.

Another Aimee Mann story: I used to get Radio City house seats from a friend who worked there. He didn't listen to rock music, so most of his four house seats he'd always offer to me for concerts I wanted to see.

The tickets weren't free, they were the regular price, I'd simply pick them up at the RC box office after he gave them my name and told them I was using his reserved seats. The house seats consisted of the same area of seats available for every show to Radio City workers. His specific four seats were always in the third or fourth row, center.

As my friends and I were leaving the concert, it was either INXS or Bryan Ferry, I noticed Aimee Mann and Jules Shear sitting all the way in the back orchestra. She was sullen and looked angry, it was that same dead stare, she looked like an alabaster statue, she was hard to miss in a sea of people dressed in black.

As I got closer, I heard her arguing with Jules Shear, telling him she didn't want to leave until the orchestra had cleared because: "People will bother me, they ALL recognize me. They're LOOKING at me!" I almost laughed out loud, I doubt everyone leaving recognized her, the friends I was with had no idea who she was! People were probably looking because her skin was so PALE.

I stopped for awhile to listen to her argument, telling my friends I'd lost my program, ha! I pretended to look for it.

I was able to hear Aimee's stupid rant. Shear was sitting there trying not to answer her. She seemed so angry, just plain crazy and delusional. Wouldn't still remaining in your seat while tons of people were leaving, draw MORE attention to her?!

Mann was well past her pop hit fame, yet there she was drawing attention to herself by loudly arguing with her boyfriend that she didn't want to be recognized!

Hilarious, self-deprecating, relentlessly talented. She experienced monster celebrity fame early in her career as a result of one hit song/video and didn't like it anyway when that blip in time passed.

R278, NOTHING in Mann's public persona points to her being "Hilarious, self-deprecating, relentlessly talented".

As for her music, which I can try to separate from what I've heard about her, it's really not all that great. Her songs are not memorable, they all sound the same, they are extremely depressing and sung in a monotone nasally voice.

Aimee Mann seems to get the same blind fan adulation and devotion people like Tori Amos seem to get. I don't get either of these women and why they continue to have such rabid fan bases. Their music never seems to grow, just because Mann is deemed an indie recording artist doesn't mean she's not stuck in a groove, she is.

I guess R278 must know her personally and are simply here to champion her, because from all accounts, it appears Mann has mental issues and is rude. Her music isn't all that wonderful, that she deserves such blind devotion and glowing accolades!

Anyone heard her new album? I think I'm just going to buy it. I haven't listened to her stuff in years and I'm curious where she's at musically.

The new Charmer CD is Awesome! She has written some deep lyrucs about the dark side of people and their manipulative ways. But the melody's are just so enjoyable. She is one of the most prolific writers of our time and I always have one of her songs flowing through my head. The song GUMBY is about the show Oarders and how it touched her. Every time I hear it it makes me want to cry - how bad some people make their own hell.

Saw her at the Berklee Permance Center - it was an intimate venue and Ted Leo (The Pharmacists) opened up for her and he was really good, but she was amazing!! Really, I think she gave a great show!!! BUY the Record! You won't be sorry!!!

Pop stars of today should totally be paying Aimee royalties for the "eh, eh" stuff that she did in "Voices Carry." Rihanna, Britney, etc are all up on that.

She's so depressing. I love her music, her lyrics, but she makes me want to slit my wrists.

Met her at a Jellyfish gig at the late lamented Academy in NYC. She's cool, saw til tuesday open for Hall & Oates at the Meadowlands and at the Ritz which is now Webster Hall. Their keyboard player, the Italian guy who now does sculpture is very hot. viva Berklee School of Music, Boston.

no they opened for either Cyndi Lauper, Howard Jones or Paul Young or Marshall Crenshaw at the Ritz.

R289, some of her vocals and inflections she did with her voice back in the 80's were great and really added to the songs.

I used to think that their song "Love in a Vacuum" was "Love in the Bathroom." Who knew?

Question: Does her half sister, musician Gretchen Seichrist, share a mom with Aimee or a dad? Anybody know?

Seems Mann's publicist, and their team, are working overtime in this thread.

I find it extremely hard to believe Aimee Mann has so many rabid fans here on DL or anywhere else for that matter!

I haven't troll-darred to see if it's the same hand full of people posting their love of her over and over again!
