Not everything was as like the cloudless sky in the life of this smiling brunette with beautiful eyes. She had a contract with Geffen Records in 1990ies, but they didn’t do their job well in promoting her album, so she has created own label to produce her first substantive album. ‘Save Me’ – this song was nominated for Oscar (but didn’t receive one) and this allowed her name to sound even louder than it was. Though she is a star of the US solely and not much public outside the US heard of her, she is a big domestic star, according to her wiki page.
‘Save Me’ has the separate page there, as every nice Oscar-nominated song should have. From there we find out it was recorded in 1999 (soon will be 18 years from today); the genre is contemporary folk, of 4:35 in length. She was solely the producer, composer and a performer of this single. The Magnolia was the film, which used a track and, as it was nominated for Oscar, the song went with it too, in the tier.
Since then, this track was used in several other sound collections, including this one, obviously, but didn’t manage to win the statue of the uncle Oscar no more. Aimee Mann was a person, who wrote the entire collection of songs to Magnolia.
She stretches the words as if trying to drown us in them. What the song is about? Love, as many of you would think. Love and salvation from the various forms of oblivion, which can be stated as the absence of hunger to live, like the fear she could never love anyone else again. Basically, she repeats these ideas for many times, giving the voice emotions in every line.
The song stylistically in line with the entire album, which follows the same experimental Indie hint as two previous albums had. Though the singer had in that period much gloomier outlook at life in general and at love particularly, the overall impression is that she is fond of living and would gladly guide the listener into the best world, where there are a little hatred and lots of love.
Mrs. Aimee looks like a teacher of the middle school or even elementary classes. She studied at Berkeley but was fool enough to drop it for the sake of joining the punk band. Yes, she had a success with it, but the risk was too high, don’t you think? After the received her first spotlight as the participant of ‘Til Tuesday band in 1980-ies, her career was climbing up the hill until she left the band to start a solo singing, which was no less successful as her creativity was in the band.
