Seth Rudetsky: "Ben" (Michael Jackson). It's a beautiful song… I love how the second verse is the same melody, but it's suddenly minor. I also love/am devastated by the lyrics, which are so loving but you know the relationship is not going to work out. And, my favorite Michael Jackson voice is from when he was a kid — so belty and so musical!
