Hotel Lights are amazing. I'm not, in general, a fan of acoustic guitar based bands but this one just works so well. The intricacy of some of the playing is excellent.

I think the thing you're after is at Woke Up Way Too Late in the Ben Folds Five Tracks folder.

I had Darren sign a copy of "The Garden Place: Songs by Our Friends" shortly after it was released years ago, and told him that if Ben Folds Five ever folded, he'd land on his feet with his songwriting. I'm glad to see that happened. The man makes some really soothing stuff.

I was hoping that you would say that, yes, you were glad, because it meant that 8 years later they could reform to play one amazing show and you could meet me at said show and we could be Best Friends Forever... :'(

Yeah... That too. ;)

I believe my actual words were, "we can share hygiene tips."

I've found that not washing at all gets me a LOT of attention from the ladies. Allison, Brooke and Mel just can't stop talking about me. You saw those hugs they gave me when we left. Serious, not washing gets you noticed.

That's why the local hobos are always surrounded by "the ladies."

Back to topic, I just realize I don't have that version anymore, but I do have one with him in a concert bootleg, if you still want it....

I really love darren's music, he is one of my favorite songwriters ever.... Hotel Lights' last cd is increadible... Best cd I bough this year

After reading this thread, I located a copy of said song from said site...I've never been a big fan of the version on Messner (the intro annoys me somehow), however I think this accoustic guitar version is great and superior to the piano version!

But the outro on Messner kicks it's ass. Tack piano FTW!

GTFO

The piano part is virtually identical to the vocals to my ears, whereas the accoustic guitar part seems to stray from them a bit.  The intro to the piano version just seems to drive me up a wall sometimes.  One of the few Messner tracks I don't enjoy big time.
