Aimee Mann's new song "I'm Cured" is about loss and heartbreak, but it's not quite like any sad-sack acoustic ballad we've heard before.
What's so strange about this quiet folk number? Well, it's sung from the perspective of a common cold — yes, the illness — after it is wiped out by a scientific cure. The video stars David Wain and Kids in the Hall's Dave Foley, along with Mann, and it portrays the scientific breakthrough in question.
