"Voices Carry" is the first studio album by the American band 'Til Tuesday, released in 1985. (see 1985 in music).

'Til Tuesday's debut single was the album's title track, which went to No. 8 on the Billboard singles chart and remains the band's best-known song. The title song was originally sung to a woman, but due to record company pressure for less controversial lyrics it was changed to be sung to a man. [ [http://www.stereosociety.com/voicescarry.html Producer Mike Thorne comments on Voices Carry] ] The "Voices Carry" video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist and was played heavily on MTV. It depicts an oppressive boyfriend trying to convert Aimee Mann to his upper-class lifestyle; she finally lashes out at him during a concert at Carnegie Hall, standing up from her seat in the audience and belting the lyrics ("He said, shut up! He said, shut up! Oh God, can't you keep it down?...") as she removes her cap to reveal her signature spiky, rat-tailed hair.

Except for one short establishing shot of the exterior of New York City's Carnegie Hall, the video was shot completely on-location in Boston, MA. The Strand Theater in Dorchester's Upham's Corner doubled for the interior of Carnegie Hall during the video's final crane shot.

The album's second and third singles were "Love in a Vacuum" and "Looking Over My Shoulder"; the latter peaked at No. 61 on the Billboard Hot 100.
