Album Board / Best song from WHATEVER AND EVER AMEN
« on: December 26, 2007, 08:54:07 AM »
Hey people,

it's Christmas and everybody's in need of these godd*mn polls, so I decided to start some as a little amusement to banish Major Boredom and General Apathy  8)

First I have to say that "Whatever and Ever Amen" is my favourite BFF album so it was really tough to choose a single song cause they're all so great. But at the moment I love "Evaporated" most so I decided for this gem. I'm a sentimental guy, I admit.  :-[

What's your favourite tune from the record?

Album Board / Best song from "Reinhold Messner"

So, what's the best song from this great album? My personal favourite is "Don't Change Your Plans"  :D

Musical discovery / New interesting band discovered
« on: December 26, 2007, 03:17:45 AM »
Hi folks,
yesterday a friend told me about a new interesting, piano-based group from Germany called "Detta Walker". So, I listened to them on myspace a few times and was quite impressed by their musical prowess. And even though they are Germans their lyrics do not suck too much. I actually had to laugh about them a bit. And I could definitely hear that they've grown up with a band called Ben Folds Five (distorted bass, harmony vocals ....). So I can only suggest you to give them a try. I like it! What do you think of them?

Album Board / Wandering live?

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if Ben has ever played "Wandering" live on his preceding tours. I'm in love with this song but couldn't find any information whether it was played live or not. Can you help me?  :)

Well, the 3 most annoying Ben Folds songs are:

"Rent-A-Cop" (don't know why but I detest this song, it's way too long)
"Such Great Heights"
"Jackson Cannery"

But I love all the others, even Mitchell Lane!

Please ask him, if there are any possibilities of a reunion of Ben, Darren and Robert for a tour and/or album in the future. And I'd also like to know if he's still in touch with the two of them.
I'm really curious about the answers because I still hope and believe that the 3 guys will get together someday to make more great music.  :)
