...I really hate whistling. I mean it just bothers the living crap out of me, I don't know why. However, here is one instance where it not only doesn't bother me, it's an interesting element to a song, and that song is Aimee Mann's "Little Tornado", which is the simplest little song about a tornado. HOWEVER, it might be about all sorts of things, meandering, powerful forces moving through people's lives. I love it, I love her, and I love her latest record, "@#%&_! Smilers". How can you not love a title like that? You know those people who @#%&_! smile all the time.

Very nice little song.

I've always thought of this ditty as whistling, even though it isn't.

Love this tune as well. Wasn't crazy about her new album (still like Bachelor No. 2 and Lost in Space better), but loved this and a couple of the other songs.

I always put on some Aimee when I think I need to cut my wrists. Does the trick every time!

I whistle all the time! I predict you would slap me if we were in the same office.

I loved her "I'm With Stupid" album.I think she's underrated so I will be checking the cd out thanks for posting!

I love AM. And I have been listening to her through out her career. I was lucky enough to see her with Til Tuesday back before you were born! (wink).

I like whistling enough for the both of us. My grandfather was a world-class whistler and just the thought of his whistling makes me downright happy. :)

Wait a second... not "was" a world-class whistler. He's still alive and whistlin'.
