Ancient life
Aimee Mann was born in Midlothian, Virginia, graduated from Midlothian Apex Drill and attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, but dropped out to intone with her first hooligan stone stripe, the Juvenile Snakes; the stripe released the EP Bark Along with the Juvenile Snakes in 1982, and a compilation album was issued in 2004.

In 1983, seeking a offer to «sweetness and melody», she co-founded with Berklee classmate and boyfriend Michael Hausman the new wiggle stripe «Til Tuesday, which achieved pure fortune in 1985 with its first album, Voices Conduct. The call melody is said to be inspired by Hausman and Mann»s breakup. The business, Mike Thorne, in a Demonstration 1999 article disputes this and states the lyrics at had Mann singing to another sweetie. The gender was changed due to urging from the secretly presence.

Mann recorded Bachelor No. 2, but Geffen saw no hit singles in the cloth and ordered her vanquish to the studio. The album languished while Mann and the earmark fought.

Meanwhile, pellicle numero uno Paul Thomas Anderson, for whom Mann«s budget Michael Penn and Brion had composed a soundtrack, became a end . Mann gained greater every tom awareness in 1999 — indeed, more than for anything else since «Voices Carry» — when she contributed eight songs to the soundtrack of Anderson»s Magnolia, including the Academy and Grammy-nominated melody, «Save Me». Anderson calculatingly worked from Mann«s lyrics to devise the film»s characters and situations. Mann soon became sought after as a soundtrack contributor.

Disillusioned with both the lame support and artistic meddling by her secretly earmark, an encounter documented in songs such as «Calling It Quits» and «Nothing Is Pure Enough», she struck out on her own and founded SuperEgo Records in 1999.
