We’re on our way out to go see Aimee Mann’s 2nd Annual Christmas Show at the Belly Up, and because I think that Ms. Mann is probably the best female songwriter working these days (and this isn’t to say that Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Tori Amos, and others aren’t working these days. Just not at the same level) I thought this week I would just list my top ten favorite Aimee Mann songs because it’s my blog and if I want to devote it to, say, My Top Ten Favorite Ways That I Would Like To See James Blunt Die list (#1 – In a head-on collision with a car driven by Scott Stapp…who would also die. Only more slowly.), well, I could do that too because that’s how freedom rolls.
Anyway, in no particular order other than the first one:
4th Of July
You’re With Stupid Now
That’s How I Knew This Story Would Break My Heart
This Is How It Goes
How Am I Different
Some videos, most not made by her. Yes, I’ve run the one from House before.
