In my most melancholic moment (hmm, maybe PMT) I’ve actually been choked up at the idea of the girl who has a man sing/play/write this for her. ‘The Luckiest’, from Ben Folds’ album Rockin’ The Suburbs is a genuinely sweet love song which speaks the simplest thoughts of most newlyweds (see the lyrics).
Ben is a small bespectacled geek of a musician who attracts every kind of fan, girls think he’s cute, guys think he’s cool, and everyone loves his music. Lucky lucky Mrs Folds.
