I get to see Ben Folds tonight at Butler! I am super pumped. I only barely got a ticket, since all the Butler kids got them before they went on sale to the public. It's supposed to be on will call right now. I hope that is true!

Songs For Silverman [13 May 2005|03:27pm]

[ mood | relaxed ]

He is often compared to, and in many ways, similar to Billy Joel. Much like Joel his songs tell stories, his songs are rather open for different interpretation based on the feelings and mindset of the listener. However, their lyrical styles are nearly polar opposites. Ben Folds writes the songs Billy Joel would have written had he come of age in the 80s and 90s instead of the 70s. There’s a certain Generation X detachment in Folds songs that sets him apart from predecessors and makes him unique.

In his latest outing, Songs For Silverman, Ben Folds waxes poetic about subjects as various as religion, relationships, parenthood, and the passing of friends/mentors.

Lyrically and musically this album is a departure from Rockin’ the Suburbs, it lacks the wit but replaces it with a bit more of an emotional punch. At first listen, I was aching for the fun and the less dour tone of Folds previous works, but with each subsequent listen this album has tiptoed into my psyche with a gentle subtlety. Folds may not be telling any “new tales” in his songs, but he tells many of the tales of life we’re all too familiar with in such a refreshingly deep and personal way that he makes his stories ours as well.

tickets for INDY show [04 May 2005|01:21pm]

I'm not sure if this is the place to ask, but I thought I'd give it a shot. the Ben Folds concert tomorrow night at the Murat is sold out. I have 2 friends that were slackers and didn't buy their tickets in time. Does anyone know where I can get a couple needs or have any extras? Thanks, Sarah.

Hi, im probably mis-using this community, but i really need the Ben Folds song "The Luckiest" for my girlfriend for this CD for her. I know this isnt what the community is for, but i really need this song, its our 6th month anniversary and she lives in VA (i live in NY) so we get to see each other about once a month if we're lucky and I just would really like to get this song for her, to make it that much more special. Sorry if im mis-using the community, delete this if you need to. Thanks. If you do, and would be willing to send it to me, leave a comment on my LJ post and i'll give you my SN. Thanks again, and sorry for mis-using the community.

i was just watching celebrity poker on bravo and well this show is where celebrities play texas hold 'em for charities. So there is this commentary (made of two men) and well one of the guys said 'hey we should get ben folds to play! - so it can be ben folds folds' it was a dumb joke but it was soo great that they mentioned him. i was like no way! and then they both agreed that his music rocked! just my random tid-bit. it may not be the most exciting this ever posted in the community but it made my night :)

Short Bus Benny mp3 [09 Jul 2004|10:59pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I was wondering if any of you had an mp3 of Ben telling his Short Bus Benny story, doing the rap and then playing "One Angry Dwarf." My boyfriend really loves to hear him tell that story and has been looking for an mp3 for a while...but to no avail.

Just comment here if you can help me out.
