Yea. Which person is supposed to be autistic? Is it the person addressed in the song or the one voicing the questions?

It's hard for me to tell :? Carly is kinda obsessed with the guy & is wondering why the guy is acting like a friend to her instead of him making a direct move but Carly will not make a direct move herself either. Carly could be seen as as the autistic one due to being obsessed & not making a direct move. However her behavior could also be seen as kinda typical of a girl having a crush & not wanting to ask him out directly due to the gender stereotype of the guy needing to. The guy being a friend to her & being afraid of making a move could be seen as autistic potentially due to social awkwardness & shyness. However his behavior is not that uncommon for more introverted guys or guys considered unpopular for whatever reason.

I dont think there is any one "most aspie song ever", but IMHO this one comes pretty close.

He called it an anthem for introverts, but its always struck me as more autsim-y than just introversion.

This song encapsulates the Autistic experience really well

Holy crap! I've heard this song dozens of times and could never figure out who sings it. Yael Naim, you say? I think I just found my new special interest :D

Yes. She's Israeli. Its a good song. With lyrics that seem to describe someone who just fell to earth from a flying saucer, or was born here as an aspie/autistic.

Not a Sabra, though. Apparently, she was born in France. Anyway, it's a nice song. Thank you for posting it. For nearly two years, I've been trying to figure out who sings it. It bordered on obsession.
