Jennifer O'Connor has a real soft spot for the Magnetic Fields' opus 69 Love Songs. The singer-songwriter moved to NYC in the late '90s, around the time that album dropped, and the song "The Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side" reminds her of her early days in Manhattan, when she was still "learning about what the Lower East Side was."
