Song of the Week

Two days late, but, that’s the way it is. If we were all regimented souls tied down by schedules, what would life be like? Let dx13 introduce you to disorder! =)

This week’s SotW is from a favourite artist of mine, Aimee Mann. I’ve been listening to Aimee for around a year now. The song I’ve chosen is from her third album, it’s called Backfire. I chose it because I think it combines some of Mann’s best qualities: a fairly happy sounding song but with darker undertones. It’s also one of my favourite songs she has written, so it seemed a good choice.

Much of Aimee Mann’s music is like this, an alluring combination of dark and light. Many of her songs are bitter and jaded, combined with a great song-writing talent which makes them greater than the sum of their parts. It is also chilled out, so I find it good to listen when working to keep me from getting to stressed. Talking of which, it is exam season: revision o’clock.
