Aimee Mann - "Thirty One Today"

Melancholy self-reflection, that's Aimee Mann's wheelhouse. Just don't assume it's autobiographical: The details in "Thirty One Today" don't match up with Mann's own life, but the quiet fumbling for some sort of contentment is so well-observed and universal you'd swear it must. And if it reminds you of your life at all, swallow hard and know everything will be OK.
