I like Ani, but I can see how one mightn't. All your other choices I agree with, especially the phrasing "tear off your ears and stomp on them" because this a sentence I often use myself.

Aimee Mann. That's for me, right? Thanks! She happens to be one of the most skilled songwriters working, no less than a Burt Bacharach influenced folk-rocker with fine lyrical sensibilities [soft of an improved Elvis Costello]. She can't sing well, I grant you that but as a songwriter, she is without equal. Boo on you.
