Ben's Old Five / Re: What exactly would you give for a BF5 reunion?
« on: April 07, 2008, 11:23:10 AM »
I'd probably give the hell of a lot if only to see Darren behind his good ol' drum kit and Robert punching his bass. I would cry for joy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Come on Ben, make an effort. Sam and Mr Reynolds are quite good but nothing compares to Sledge and Jessee (and of course Sinead O'Connor  ;D )

"You Still Believe in Me" by The Beach Boys. I'm in love with this song. Brian Wilson at his best, heavenly chords and butter-melting vocals. Always makes me wanna cry.

And I'm listening to "Grown" by DETTA WALKER all day. A great German band that remind me of good old BFF days. I can really recommend their myspace-site. Great music!  :D

Oh, I'm surprised that Evaporated is on top at the moment. That's the place it really deserves.  :D

this one deals with Naked Baby Photos. I had a tough time choosing between "Twin Falls" and "Eddie Walker" but I decided for the first one. So what's your fav?

"And in the end the love you take
Is equal to the love you make"

("The End", Abbey Road, 1969)

What a great philosophical line. I love it. They were the best!

General Board / Ben's voice over the years

Hi folks,

I was just listening to the album version "Kate" and to the myspace-concert version and realized that Ben's voice changed quite a lot over the past years. But why did that happen. Does it have something to do with his throat problems?

Until RTS I really loved his voice, very distinctive and smooth. But it seems like something happened with his voice between RTS and the EPs. Am I right? I sometimes do no like his current voice, cause live he's often out of tune. I know this already happened before. Nonetheless he's the best (but he would be GOD if he'd be playing with Darren and Robert again  ;) ).

So, what do you think bout his voice?

I'm a huge fan of "The Dark Tower". I'm reading it for the 3rd time now (At the moment it's "Wolves of the Calla"-time, I luv it  :) ). So that makes Detta Walker even more likeable. I like the name. Cool idea to take the name of a 3 times split personality (I think they're 3 guys in the band).

time for the final EP "Speed Graphic". That's the one I like least of all. But nonetheless "Adelaide" is awesome. So that's my choice. What's yours?

the second Ep has some great tunes as well and with "Songs of Love" a great Divine Comedy-cover. But I decided for "Learn To Live..." though I love "Rockstar" as well.

Album Board / Best song from SPEED GRAPHIC

Hi folks,

now it's time for the EPs. I must admit that "Speed Graphic" is my favourite one and this time the decision was really easy. I chose "Wandering" cause IMO it's one of his saddest and most haunting songs   :'( and of course because Darren wrote the chorus to it.

What's your choice?

Judy is my second favourite short after "Late" and like the album version far more than the sparse EP one. (mmh when I think of tose heavenly Beach Boys choirs...I will listen to it now  :D

Album Board / Best song from SONGS FROM SILVERMAN
« on: December 26, 2007, 09:29:37 AM »
Hey folks,

so this poll is for ben's latest studio release (if you don't count Over The Hedge and supersunnyspeedgraphic). Silverman gave me a tough time because in the beginning I was a bit disappointed with the songs and the overall feeling. But like every Folds/BFF release it grew on me and now I love it just like all his other stuff. My personal favourite at the moment is "Late" cause I'm a big fan off Elliott's music and for me it's the high point of the whole album and one of Ben's best and saddest ballads.

Keep on choosing!

Album Board / Best song from ROCKIN' THE SUBURBS
« on: December 26, 2007, 09:11:56 AM »
Now it's time for Ben's solo records. "Suburbs" was my first experience with Ben and I immediately fell in love with it. My choice is Zak and Sara cause that was the song that stuck with me for weeks.

What's yours?

Album Board / Best song from BEN FOLDS FIVE

so this is the next poll that deals with their eponymous debut album. For me it's definitely "Alice Childress" because it has such Beatle-esque flair to it and I kinda love its lyrics. It reminds of past summer days with a slight of melancholy.

I'm nosey for your favourite  :)
