Will someone please try to request "Leather Jacket"? I'm very interested to know if Ben has ANY idea how to play it considering he didn't write it and BF5 never toured it. I tried my damnedest to make it happen in Portland but came up short.

The only Ben Folds Five song my fiancee knew before I met her was "Leather Jacket" because her brother had the Kosovo refugee compilation back in the day. And she had never heard "Brick." Does anyone else find this extremely inexplicable and awesome??

I was at this show too...when Ben broke his string for whatever reason he asked me to guess which string it was...I guessed incorrectly that it was a B-flat.

I'd been waiting 13 years to see those three together and it pretty much maid my life!! The only thing I was disappointed about was that Magic was in the setlist for the encore but they skipped it.

Has anyone else noticed that on Spotify "Tell Me What I Did" is the live version from the University of Scranton not the new recording?

I'm starting to think that "Breakup At Food Court" could have fit well on TUBORM after "Hospital Song". The 2nd verse of Breakup could talk about something like how Reinhold's girl helped him through that tough time but now that he's better he has no reason to be with her. And then it would make sense that he gets a job a Chik-fil-a in "Army" because he's been spending so much time in the food court.

Hey do you think Ben has offered to sell "Girl" to Nick Lachey?

So the version of Landed on Disc 1 is new right? Strings but no intro, outro cut down by about 20 seconds...6 years later and I think they've finally got the mix that could've been a hit.

Also on the topic of Disc 1, I don't know about ya'll but it felt REALLY weird hearing OAD and Kate without the "I like that one" and "cool" parts after having listened to WAEA about 1.5 million times. I almost heard it anyway like a phantom limb or something.

After reading what Ben wrote about "The Luckiest" and his dedicating it to Fleur, I was anticipating Disc 1 using the mix of the song without Frally's "oohs", but nope she was there. Has anyone else heard that mix or know where it came from?
