  • tugs at the strings
  • the only laughing I do with this song is at "jesperson's cock" at the end
  • This is pretty much the best song ever
  • Crash Test Dummies cover of this is great too.
  • For another great piano driven humorous tune check Beck's 'MTV makes me wanna smoke crack.'
  • It would appear that I am unable to stop humming when listening to this song.
  • disarmingly beautiful [3]
  • mustardog is right, this song can be beautiful and humorous at the same time. What's more, it probably WAS intended to be both at the time of its writing, as a way of softening the blow of the touchiness of the message. people who think this is some achingly beautiful, straightfaced ode to nonbinary gender are applying their own thoughts and expectations to people of 1984.
  • People with no sense of humor always fail to see the humor. The funny thing is in the mid-80s when they wrote this, no one got this song, so it was only considered humorous. In a few more decades the rest of the world will finally catch up to Westerberg's thinking.
  • The Replacements frickend rocked the house!
  • Love the piano
  • Surprised people find this funny, it's disarmingly beautiful to me and pretty hopeful [2]
  • what a timeless tune. so much win in this track
  • I got it wrong, it is 'Jefferson's'. Oops.
  • Amazing song
  • This is one of the sweetest rock songs I've ever heard. Kind of adorable actually.
  • Does he say "Jefferson's cock" at the end, or am I insane? [2]
  • What a fucking song.
  • Tom/Laura of Against Me! covering this live was just....perfect.
  • sweetest song I ever did heard
  • Jesperson's cock!? I always thought he was saying Jefferson's couch and it never made any sense :b Then again I'm not sure where Jesperson's cock fits into the context of the song.
  • Surprised people find this funny, it's disarmingly beautiful to me and pretty hopeful. The chorus is one of the sweetest moments in recorded music, or at least it is to me. I remember saying in a high school English class that gender, as in roles and expectations, is a social construct and in 1000 years won't exist, so we should quit worrying about it already. I said that with confidence and Westerberg's lyrics in mind, and the class' reaction still amuses me. Soundtrack to my teenage sexual confusion and one of the greatest songs I ever did hear
  • Their best song.
  • Amazing song.. so fragile
  • Master degree in songwriting, oh yes sire.
  • mirror image, see no damage, see no evil at allllll
  • what's so funny about this song?
  • nice melody and rhythm!
  • damn man, if i only i could write a song like this. i love this band.
  • ROFL to 'Jesperson's cock'. Never paid attention.
  • Beautiful song.
  • gorgeous melody
  • Err...I really don't think this song is supposed to be funny.
  • An amazing song that captures that perfect bittersweet vibe
  • i know this song is supposed to be funny, but it always makes me feel sad whenever I listen to it, i don't know why.
  • this is so different from so much of their stuff which i love, but i cant get enough of this song.
  • exactly. never heard it referred to as "urine stall"
  • A urine stall is the thing guy's pee in... otherwise known as a urinal.
  • yeah, uh, what exactly is a "urine stall?"
  • Oh, I see.
  • No, I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be at least a little funny.
  • Now I know this is beautiful and shit but I find the opening lines to be fucking hilarious.
  • Does he say "Jefferson's cock" at the end, or am I insane?
  • i'd love to do this on karaoke
  • Yeah... amazing song. Kewpie dolls and urine stalls will be laughed at the way you're laughed at now. Yeah, that's amazing too. :(
  • Urine stalls will be laughed at the way you're laughed at now...
  • Kewpie dolls and urine stalls we be laughed at the way you're laughed at now. That's my favorite line in music right now.
  • Even better than I Will Dare.
  • Closer than you know, love each other so... Great song.
