Biography

Aimee Mann, late of 1980s one-hit wonders 'til tuesday, was a singer-songwriter plagued by record company woes and lackluster sales until her remarkable musical contributions to Paul Thomas Anderson's acclaimed 1999 release "Magnolia" pushed her back into the spotlight and offered her a new career opportunity. As part of 'til tuesday, Mann had a hit with "Voices Carry," a 1985 chart-topper off of their debut album of the same name. A pop-rock anthem that took to task a cold-hearted lover, the success of "Voices Carry" was due in no small part to the music video, an MTV favorite that featured the blonde, slender, delicate-featured Mann sporting a timely overdone coif and acting the part of the stifled girlfriend with explosive results. 'til tuesday never revisited the success of that single with their subsequent follow-up albums, and disbanded in 1989.
