omgsh i cant believe its his forth did he write 'luckiest' for this one or one of the others?

I don't feel like looking it up, but luckiest waa deifinately written way before he married Fleur, so to answer your question: Probably not.


I'm happy for the man, but my husband and I did our first dance at our wedding party to "the luckiest", because we love the song AND because Ben Folds wrote it for his - former - wife. The symbolism kinda gets lost now... but hey, I still love the song :)


Perhaps a message to women to not marry Mr. Folds, as great as his music is. Sigh.


Still fighting a way to normal, he is. I had no idea!!!!!!!!!!!! I still love his music!


i thought that "Luckiest" was written about his daughter? oh well whatever floats your boat.

His new CD makes me cringe because of all the references to his ex-wife Frally--even if he says they're not references to her. He's got a couple of 9-year-old kids, and you just don't write stuff like that about your kids' mom. The kids are more important than some material for mediocre pop songs. Immature. Not only is the CD not so great, but his status as a human being goes down (because I know he cares about what I think). Frally, on the other hand, has a new CD, and it's very cool.


Umm.. can I be number 5??? Pretty please?


uhh jenny is an idiot Ben can write whatever the shit he wants to write about, and he is a damn good song writer, and a vey down to earth friendly guy, i met him while i was recording some songs in nashville acouple years back and he is a bad ass and fucking legend!!!!


I know Ben very well and frankly, I'm disappointed in him. I thought he had finally found something special with Frally. While I've been his friend since high school, I'm thinking I need to be in Frally's corner on this one. No doubt the man is a genious but that is never an excuse to be an extreme asshole.
