tugs at the strings

the only laughing I do with this song is at "jesperson's cock" at the end
14 Apr 2015, 2:28pm
This is pretty much the best song ever
22 Jan 2015, 4:50am
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 
12 Aug 2013, 2:35pm
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.

Surprised people find this funny, it's disarmingly beautiful to me and pretty hopeful

This is one of the sweetest rock songs I've ever heard. Kind of adorable actually.
7 Sep 2012, 7:30pm
Does he say "Jefferson's cock" at the end, or am I insane? 
7 Sep 2012, 7:27pm
What a fucking song.
11 Jun 2012, 3:03am
Tom/Laura of Against Me! covering this live was just....perfect.
30 Apr 2012, 10:21pm
sweetest song I ever did heard
14 Apr 2012, 12:59am
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.
12 Nov 2011, 11:55pm

Err...I really don't think this song is supposed to be funny.
6 Sep 2010, 7:01pm
An amazing song that captures that perfect bittersweet vibe
6 Sep 2010, 1:49am
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.
16 Jun 2010, 8:42pm
this is so different from so much of their stuff which i love, but i cant get enough of this song.
13 Jun 2010, 5:43am
exactly. never heard it referred to as "urine stall"
10 Jun 2010, 4:59am
A urine stall is the thing guy's pee in... otherwise known as a urinal.
3 Jun 2010, 5:10pm
yeah, uh, what exactly is a "urine stall?"
31 Mar 2010, 7:34pm
Oh, I see.
23 Mar 2010, 2:10am
No, I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be at least a little funny.
21 Mar 2010, 4:00am
Now I know this is beautiful and shit but I find the opening lines to be fucking hilarious.
11 Mar 2010, 12:56am
Does he say "Jefferson's cock" at the end, or am I insane?
5 Feb 2010, 4:10pm
i'd love to do this on karaoke
29 Dec 2009, 6:59am
Yeah... amazing song. Kewpie dolls and urine stalls will be laughed at the way you're laughed at now. Yeah, that's amazing too. :(
9 Dec 2009, 11:51pm
Urine stalls will be laughed at the way you're laughed at now...
1 Nov 2009, 5:00am
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.
1 Nov 2009, 12:47am

22 Oct 2009, 10:34pm
