Last week, I did one of the hardest things I have ever had to do.
My friend Jen informed me that she was not very familiar with Ben Folds. I felt guilty. This was my fault – I hadn’t spread the good news. If I didn’t get Ben into her life quickly, she could be left behind and never experience his triumphant music. She came by with a blank CD right before I was headed home from work. So, in 14 minutes, I put together a Ben Folds Compilation CD to introduce her to the wonder that is Ben Folds (in my defense, I included Brick for historical purposes). I tried to give a good mix, but include true “Ben Folds” type tunes (no Hospital Room, folks). What did I forget? Which standards do you think I included?
Already ran these questions by Husbanks. His comments …
1. “Late is a little cheesy.”
2. “What about You Were Not The Same, Army and Sports and Wine?”
I am especially expecting Steph Brown, Ward, and Elenaran to sound off on this … maybe I can make a Ben for Jen II with your comments.
