On this day in music history: March 25, 1985 - “Voices Carry" by ‘Til Tuesday is released. Written by Aimee Mann, Robert Holmes, Joey Pesce and Michael Hausman, it is the debut single from the New Wave/Rock band from Boston, MA fronted by lead singer and bassist Aimee Mann. Shortly after the band receives their initial break by winning the “WBCN Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble” in their hometown, 'Til Tuesday are signed to Epic Records. The idea of what becomes the song “Voices Carry” originates with the bands lead singer, bassist and main lyricist Aimee Mann. The lyrics, having to do with relationships gone wrong (her relationship with band drummer and former boyfriend Michael Hausman in particular), are originally intended to be sung by Mann to another woman. Epic Records fearing negative reaction from radio programmers and the public to its original same sex subject matter, ask the band to change the gender of the songs love interest. Initially resistant to the idea, eventually the gender of the person Mann is singing to is changed to a man. Released two and a half months in advance of their debut album (also titled “Voices Carry”), the single is supported by a memorable music video featuring Mann in a deteriorating relationship with a wealthy and controlling boyfriend (played by actor Cully Holland), quickly becomes an MTV staple, and becomes a major pop radio hit. Entering the Billboard Hot 100 at #81 on April 13, 1985, “Voices Carry” peaks at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 on July 13, 1985, driving sales of their debut album to Gold status in the US.

So basically, I wanted to really surprise Seán with his gift, and hear him yell ‘Toriko’, so I was like ‘oh I’ll ask him to close his eyes, yell Trico, and then ask him to open his eyes, and like BOOM! Trico.’ As soon as I asked him the words ‘close your eyes’, I knew it sounded really creepy (fuck), but he humoured me, and it was lots of fun. I’m really happy he likes it! 

This is that moment:


I hope derka-derk is happy in Ireland with @therealjacksepticeye!

(also I’m almost 27 so it’s fine that he called me a girl, you think I’m an adult yet, hell no)


(and can I just say that I love that Seán’s voice for Trico in the unboxing video is the same voice Felix gives Edgar his pug, LOL)
