    This is such a lovely song. I love how it starts out as a funny anecdote then halfway through it changes into this heartfelt encouragement to his friend. "Don't let anyone stand in your way" is a perfect message.

    This song now reminds me of the current news story that a Hong Kong billionaire will pay a man $65m to marry his lesbian daughter - imagine the meeting of the poor guy and the father!

    In Swedish, his surname would sound like "Lake-moan" to an English speaker. In English, it's pronounced "Leck-min". "Jens", on the other hand, is pronounced the same way in Swedish and English.

    My mom even likes this song. That's just how wide-ranging Jens' appeal is.

    who's better jens or ben folds? they should go head to head. I guess we should also throw david ford in the mix there

    I just love this song! I had been the "girlfriend" of one gay-friend...and this is totally truth!

    Super though this is, if he'd lost the last minute after "Yours truly, Jens Lekman", it would be the perfect pop song. It's still excellent though.

    Hilarious, charming, poignant, sweet, honest, beautiful, and catchy as hell... yes, this one is an all time favorite. And Cheesetrolly, yes... I love the "th" to "dh" impediment, it makes it all the more charming!

  • hinat

    completely fabulous!

  • cheesetrolley

    It's so strange how he sings/speaks with a perfect American accent but still has trouble with his 'th' sounds. Not that I care, I love this song.

    Morrissey in Ouija Board mentions his own name Steven.

    March 2008
  • dopplehead1

    This song's very literal in its descriptions, much like Morrissey or Steve Merritt, except I've never heard them use their own name in a song. I love it.

    March 2008
  • licoricepizza

    He really has a way with words, doesn't he? On first listen, you find yourself swaying to the music, then the words and story register in your head (and you just have to smile).

    I dig this: He says he just wants to say hi I send back out of office, auto-replies lol
