I'm only 23 yet the sentiment rings true.

Aimee Mann writes the most rational songs. Her thought processes are so logical, yet poignant. She writes the way you wish you could think when you're too busy being a mopey wreck. "Thirty One Today", off the wonderfully titled @#%&*! Smilers is the kind anthem that is sadly all too relatable:

Called some guy I knew
Had a drink or two
And we fumbled as the day grew dark
I pretended that I felt a spark

I thought my life would be different somehow
I thought my life would be better by now
But it's not and I don't know where to turn

Thirty One Today - Aimee Mann
