Howard, the strangest things have happened lately
When I take a good swing at all my dreams, they pivot
And slip, I drop my fists and they're back laughing

  • I'll take a wild shot in the dark, cos it's unlikely chronologically/logistically - but Ben Folds MAY HAVE wrote this song about former Australian right-wing prime minister John Winston Howard. BF now lives in Adelaide, or last I heard several years ago.
  • oh howard.
  • Sooooo beautiful.
  • incredibly lovely. So great.
  • My dad's favorite Ben Folds Five song, and probably mine, too.
  • It's probably bad that this song is where I got the idea to punch myself when I was really upset. Great song, loaded.
  • Love this song for the creaky piano stool.
  • Damn, why can't I put a dozen of these 'loved track' hearts next to this song in my library? Only one just does not make justice...
  • Bette Midler does a good cover of this.
  • 18 years old when he wrote it ... incredible.
