Episode 12 Preview - The Luckiest

Love is all around this week as we discuss the anti-love song love song "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds.  Try not to cry as you listen to this one folks.
No excuses not to download the song this week.  We've got your iTunes link (only 99 cents!), we've got your Google Play link (normal price), and your Amazon Music (link...FREE with Prime).

There are a whole bunch of versions of Ben Folds performing the song, although no official video.  Since the goal is to talk about the album version, listen at your own risk.

And, for the text-based music lovers, some lyrics:

"The Luckiest"
I don't get many things right the first time,

In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns the stumbles,
And falls brought me here
And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face,
Now I see it every day
And I know

That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest
What if I had been born fifty years before you

In a house on the street
Where you lived
Maybe I'd be outside as you passed on your bike. Would I know?
And in a wide sea of eyes
I see one pair that I recognize

And I know
That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest
I love you more then have

Ever found the way to say
To you

Next door there's an old man who lived to his nineties and one day

Passed away in his sleep,
And his wife, she stayed for a couple of days, and passed away

I'm sorry I know that's a strange way to tell you that I know we belong,
That I know
That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest

So, listen, read, and join us on Wednesday to discuss this song.  Bring a hankie.
