So hard to choose beyond So There and I'm not the Man, both fantastic songs. I love the first break in So There.

I totally agree. I voted for the underdog. Which is I'm Not the Man currently.

"So There" is one of my favorite Ben Folds songs ever. It seems so thoughtfully arranged and perfectly "fleshed out;" maybe that's the result of the song (or at least the piano part) floating around in his head for years before he released it.

I also like third movement of the concerto, which has a catchy piano hook starting at 0:46 when Ben plays with one hand on the strings (not sure of the technical term for what he's doing, but it sounds cool).

As for F10-D-A... I know it shows Ben has the same sense of humor he's always had, and I could totally see it as a Rock This Bitch song, but I think it's sort of a cheesy ditty to ask a classical group to record for a chamber rock album. Just my opinion.

And I agree with Steady As She Goes that Ben should keep the beard ;).
