This is Everclear's best song, in my opinion. Father of Mine is also a favorite.

I always read into the "perfect shiny and new" line as he was saying that he is going to buy a NEW new car... not a new-to-you car. When my friend got married her husband sang a quieter, softer version of this to her, it was so beautiful.

As great/sad this song is, its so true to its sincerity. almost as if its too personal to even be singing lol. Im a strong believer that even though this band was only around for a little while they were greatly under rated. Bands today dont write songs like this anymore.

ART ALEXAKIS IS THE LYRIC MASTER!

Candidate for worst song lyric of all time:

"I will buy you a new car, perfect shiny and new"

Seriously, you go through the work of making at least some of the verses rhyme, then pick "new" to rhyme with itself? Why not "perfect shiny and blue", or is that just not deep enough to mesh with the rest of this intensely personal, introspectiv e song?

That line just slays me.

I had an ex who was the singer of a rock band and he sang this for me on my birthday :) at the time I wasn't old enough to get into the club so he called me and put the cell down so I could hear. So sweet!

Most reality based love song I've ever heard. Love it!

bdkelsey will probably never read this, but that is an incredibly hilarious review of this song. I don't actually hate this song, but I can certainly understand how someone could hate it so much. :)

If I were to sort all the songs I have heard in order from best to worst, I would end up beating my head against the wall while attempting the impossible task of figuring out which song is most deserving of the number one spot. Not so with the bottom. Everclear's 'I will buy you a new life' secured last place without even breaking a sweat, defeating 'My Humps' by the Black Eyed peas by an impressive margin, and ensuring that I will never, ever willingly listen to any of their music again.
