Whatever and Ever Amen (1997)
This is the radio song. I remember it got big on the “air waves”. It’s a flowery ballad about (of all things) a teenage abortion. Ben would later admit, in a live album, that it was based on the true tale of he and his high school girlfriend getting an abortion. Certainly a hit in the making, but Ben has a good way with telling stories through his music.
This was the song that put Ben and his Band on my radar, but I still hadn’t figured him out.
