One of the things I've really gotten past in the last
by Aimee Mann

that's fictional with lots of details and then removing
yourself too much from it,

I'm out...
I'm doing better than ever.

I know that's not the healthiest of responses.
- Aimee Mann

It's more important for me to have a good record with
good music and be part of a movie that's good and where
the music is used in a really great way.
That's the important thing.
The other stuff you want to say about it,
I don't care.
- Aimee Mann

I certainly understand that we're all trying to make a living,
but I'm not thinking about that when I'm making it.

and you're going to hear it in the music.
- Aimee Mann

In the '70s, everybody thought drugs were just good times.
People didn't really know about drug addiction,

He's busy.
And I'm busy.
I don't need the dough, though.
But having said that, there's a limit to how much bad music I wanna play.
I did it when I was young, and some of the music was OK,
but it wasn't great.
- Aimee Mann

It's funny, because my last record was a lot about
isolation and people living in separate worlds that
other people can't even understand,
which drug addiction is the perfect negative example of.
- Aimee Mann

Everybody kind of understands, Oh yeah you take drugs
and it does something to your brain and then you can't stop.

of not being able to control your own life.
- Aimee Mann

to choose one's own way.
