It doesn't matter whether you listen to pop, rock or country -- Rob Thomas' songs are inescapable. There's the tune he co-wrote with Mick Jagger, "Visions of Paradise," for Jagger's 2001 solo album, Goddess in the Doorway. There's "Maria (Shut Up and Kiss Me)," which Thomas wrote for Willie Nelson's 2002 album The Great Divide. Let's not forget "Smooth," Thomas' Grammy-winning contribution to Santana's Supernatural album in 1999. Oh, and he fronts Matchbox Twenty, a band that has sold more than 15 million records since 1996.

Toby Lightman is a study in contradiction. Both hip-hop and rock influence her acoustic guitar sound. Her latest album, Bird on a Wire, was produced by Bill Bottrell, most famous for producing Sheryl Crow's early work, and Patrick Leonard, known for his work with Madonna. After opening for Howie Day, Gavin DeGraw, Rob Thomas, Jewel and even Prince, Lightman fronts her own show at 8 p.m. Tuesday in Annapolis. The concert is at Rams Head Tavern, 33 West St. Tickets are $15. Call 410-268-4545 or go to ramsheadtavern.

From a fan's perspective, Matchbox Twenty's "Yourself or Someone Like You" was one of the most successful debuts of the '90s. Since its release in 1996, the album has sold more than 10 million copies, thanks to such hits as "Push" and "3 a.m." But as singer Rob Thomas explains, he and his band-mates saw that first album primarily as an experiment. "We made what we like to call a hypothetical record," he says during a telephone interview from the band's rehearsal studio in Atlanta. In fact, as Thomas sees it, "Mad Season by Matchbox Twenty," the band's sophomore release, due in record stores Tuesday, is the first real Matchbox Twenty album.

The knock against Rob Thomas and his band Matchbox Twenty is that they are way too normal, nowhere near flashy enough to compete with Next Big Things and buzz-worthy big-timers. Ask the guys behind chart-toppers such as "Push" and "Bent," and they will call such talk a blessing. "We're kind of integrated into the business now," said Thomas, calling from a tour stop in Cincinnati. "We just wanted to stay in the business. We always wanted to be just another band to listen to. That was all we wanted."

The title "Drive Me Crazy" suggests passion, desire, torment, frenzy -- anything but the predictable scenario and flat characters drawn by director John Schultz and screenwriter Rob Thomas ("Dawson's Creek").Melissa Joan Hart (TV's "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch") plays Nicole Maris, a perky 17-year-old completely wrapped up in the school social scene and her romantic pursuit of basketball jock Brad (Gabriel Carpenter). Adrian Grenier ("The Adventures of Sebastian Cole") is Chase Hammond, Nicole's neighbor and childhood friend who's a social dropout by choice.
