Day 1: Brick

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.

I've made a smart playlist of all the songs with 0 plays. I listen to them because I feel bad for them not because I like the music. I'm THAT guy.

  1. This song made my not like ben folds five. It really was the only song I could ever remember even hearing on the radio. It wasn’t until Jeff played me “zac and sara” that I got hooked.
