Transcription / Re: So There Sheet Music?
« on: February 16, 2017, 10:21:13 PM »
I took a rough stab at arranging a version of just the song "So There" awhile ago, which I attached. Def. not exactly what Ben plays, but I think it's workable.

I bought the album on iTunes also, so can't help there, but you could always just borrow the So There CD from your local library if you just want to read the liner notes once.

Album Board / Re: For Giggles: Favorite Song off of "So There"

"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 ;).

Does anyone know who his new girlfriend is?

Last we knew - officially - was that he was Alicia Witt, but the two of them have not appeared together/communicated (outside of promoting each other's records, he produced hers, she co-wrote "I'm Not the Man) for several months. That being said, I'm not going to do any sort of theorizing. Last time I theorized, turns out he wasn't pissed. (Circa 2007)

Thanks, yeah, I read Alica's year-old FanBridge post that someone else linked to (http://bit.ly/1Qx6Wgv) saying that she broke up with him, but I didn't know if he'd been seen with or mentioned anyone new. Obviously the Billboard writer knows there's someone. Hope we'll find out eventually!

Oh god I'm crying (from laughter) through this billboard article. hahahaha
If you read between the lines (or some of the actual lines), it sounds like a mid-life crisis in progress unfortunately.

Does anyone know who his new girlfriend is?
