Ben Folds is the guest on this week’s episode of A.V. Club’s One Track Mind, the show that finds songwriters talking to the A.V. Club about writing their songs, and then performing it. Folds doesn’t talk about something on his recent albums: He talks about “The Luckiest,” the song he says will “outlive” him.
