One of the greatest songwriters of the last 25 years. Maybe the best.

What's with the cheesy interview schtick at the beginning ? wtf, just start the song and let us figure out the videos are the same. I probably wouldn't have even noticed until the theatre scene, and then it would have been an interesting epiphany. Instead sitting thru the interviews at the beginning was a chore.

My dad forever ruined "Voices Carry" for us by singing "Pussy's scary!" in its place. And once you hear it, it can't be unheard...

It's juuuust before my time, as we had to watch MTV at my grandmother's house until we got cable in 1987 or so, and even then we didn't get to watch it much at her house.

The guy in the original video seemed to be in a lot of videos in the 80's. He always seemed to play the jerk. I'm not sure but I think he was in the Golden Earing Twilight Zone video too. I'm sure he's a nice guy but he has one of those faces I'd love to punch.

That was great, good song too. Mrs. Fister has a serious woman crush on Aimee.

This is why you skip the first third of any YouTube video.

she so sexy and cute in the 80's, not bad now just not a fan of those glasses and hair style.

I do love the two videos side by side
 
2012-09-19 09:39:28 AM
Ah, Aimee Mann... like a fine wine, she's only gotten better with age.
 
2012-09-19 09:44:33 AM
Ok, that was funny. I love Aimee's deadpan style. And I liked the song quite a bit as well.

He's also in Madonna's "Vogue"

Neat concept, but haven't shot-for-shot remakes been around for quite some time? Like shot-for-shot remakes of trailers using scenes from other movies?

Also, those are two seriously depressing songs.
 
2012-09-19 12:35:35 PM
C'mon Tori Amos. Give us that "challenge accepted" face. Make your next video a shot-for-shot recreation of Y Kant Tori Read's "The Big Picture."

Anyone who would hate Aimee Mann has probably never heard of her.

Boy, she's really milking that 'Voices Carry' fame, isn't she?

There were other ways to shoot that video, sweetheart.

I remember the debut of Voices Carry. I was mesmerized then, and I've been a fan ever since. I think this idea is (as we said back in the day) awesome!!

/Off to order Charmer now.
//I own every other album.

I don't hate Aimee Mann; I have a couple of 'til tuesday songs floating around on my hard drive but ... I don't know, her solo stuff's really never grabbed me. And don't say "oh, just listen to (insert song or album here), then you'll see!" because I used to know a MASSIVE fan who had all her stuff. Tiny CSS, though--I played her "Time Stand Still," where she does sound absolutely amazing, and Aimee Mann's Biggest FanTM didn't believe me when I told her it was Aimee singing because, you know, Aimee would never do COMMERCIAL rock.

She was cute then, and she's still cute now! :)

didnt like the newer song, the older song still works super well. Still a hilarious meta of revamping a video this way.
