After Having Two Different Conversations In The Past Couple Days Concerning…

BEN FOLDS

…I Decided To Toss MY Favorite Song Of His Out To Y’all In The Bloggin’ing World.

BEN FOLDS

…Came To My Geographical Area Back In Early 2002.

He Was Promoting The Album…

ROCKIN’ THE SUBURBS

…That He’d Released Back In September 2001.

I Actually Went On A Date To See Him Play LIVE!

And While The Relationship Didn’t Last Much Beyond That…

(Though We ARE Friends Again, Fo SHO)

…The Vivid Memory Of The Concert Remained.

He Did A Couple Songs From His Former Group…

BEN FOLDS FIVE

…But The Bulk Of The Songs He Played For Us That Night Were From This, His First Real Solo-Album.

I Happily Listened Closely To Each And Every Song.

I Was Supremely Impressed, To Say The Least.

And While The Title Song…

ROCKIN’ THE SUBURBS

…Was Easily His Most Popular Number…

…MY Favorite Was…

NOT THE SAME

.Period.

To This Day…

…Listening To…

BEN FOLDS

…Always Puts A Smile On My Face.

I Was HOOKED After That Concert In 2002…

…But I Hadn’t Really Paid Him Much Mind Here In 2012.

I’m VERY VERY Glad I’m Doing So Again.

A Brilliant AND Talented Artist Whose Music Is Never Short In The Personal Smiles Department.

If You’ve Never Heard Him…

…Nor Heard Of Him…

…Or Whatever…

…The Album…

ROCKIN’ THE SUBURBS

…Is A GREAT Place To BEGIN!!!

Enjoy My Peeps!!!

Hope Y’all Have A Wonderful FRIDAY

…And An Even MORE Wonderful WEEKEND!!!

L8r, Gators!!!
