52. The Magnetic Fields, "The Luckiest Guy on the Lower East Side" (1999)

This swinging love song by Stephin Merritt is about an ugly dude who has some fugly wheels—but hey, at least he's got wheels. The tone is pure Magnetic Fields: sweet tempo, self-deprecation and a dash of nervy wit that is unique to Merritt. He may have left us for Los Angeles, but the attitude on this track is all Gotham.
