Aimee Mann's best-known songs — "Wise Up," the Academy Award-nominated "One" — have given her a reputation as a lyricist of bleak and tragic ballads. But Mann has always displayed a streak of black humor. One doesn't need to go much further than her Twitter account for fresh evidence of this. "Am I really going to read this giant autobiography of Slash?" she tweeted recently. "Signs point to 'unlikely.'" On Oscar night, the missives were just as acid. "We here in my living room are finding these Adrien Brody commercials inexplicable," she wrote.

Something about their happy, shiny, smiling faces and bell-like greetings annoy her, even unnerve her a little. Aimee Mann often notices these strangers while hanging around Los Angeles, her home base these days. These people on the street - "smilers," she calls them - occasionally stop her and others who aren't walking around with permanent Colgate grins. "A friend of mine and I used to laugh at how there's always somebody on the street who smiles all the time and is the first one to say, 'Hey, smile!

It's been a while since anyone has heard from the once-popular band 'Til Tuesday.Since the band broke out of Boston in 1985 with the huge hit "Voices Carry," it has been a long, downhill ride for singer/bassist Aimee Mann's band.'Til Tuesday had two follow-up albums, "Welcome Home" and "Everything Is Different Now," but neither received much airplay or had nearly the gold success of the band's debut.Since the third album flopped two years ago, Mann has been working diligently to get the band off of Epic Records and onto a label that she felt would better promote her music.

Consider the myth of the tortured artist. Aimee Mann has, painstakingly. In a way she's the perfect person for the job, because Mann seems to be the quintessence of the model: a dark soul whose beautiful songs spring from a bottomless well of gloom. But - as any Aimee Mann song would quietly, scathingly point out - nothing is as it seems. And it's the tiny twists of perspective, the ghostly shifts in angle of approach, that change everything. That and repeated viewings of Crumb. "That film [a documentary about underground comic book artist Robert Crumb and his extraordinarily dysfunctional family]

Strong Love AffairRay Charles (Qwest 46107)A foolish consistency may be the hobgoblin of little minds, but a foolish inconsistency is what ends up hobbling Ray Charles' latest album, "Strong Love Affair." With most of the album given over to richly orchestrated tracks produced by Jean-Pierre Grosz, the bulk of "Strong Love Affair" hearkens back to the glory days of the late '60s, when Charles fused funky soul and mainstream pop with consummate ease. From the brassy blues of "Everybody's Handsome Child" and "The Fever" to the mannered melancholy of "Say No More" and "Angelina," these tracks recall the strengths that made Charles the most influential soul singer of his generation.
