Ben Folds live mix

Here in three packages is my mix of Ben Folds live tracks from:

Songs For Goldfish EP, 2005
Soundboard recording from gig in Berlin, 4 June 2005
DVD Rip of Summerstage gig in New York City, 14 July, 2004
DVD Rip of concerts with the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra in Perth, March 2005)

All tracks have been normalised, and packed in three files for safer downloading (nothing as annoying as a 70MB download cutting out at 95%)

File 1
File 2
File 3

1. There’s Always Someone Cooler Than You
“Make me feel tiny if it makes you feel tall, but there’s always someone cooler than you.”
2. Rockin’ the Suburbs
“Mom and dad make me so uptight, I’m gonna cuss on the mic tonight”
3. One Down
“And I hate hearing belly-aching rockstars Whine and sob, cause I could be bussing tables, I could well be pumpin’ gas. But I get paid much finer for playin’ piano and kissin’ ass.”
4. Zak And Sara
“Sara spelled without an ‘h’ was getting bored on a Peavey amp in 1984 While Zak without a ‘c’ tried out some new guitars, playing Sara-with-no-h’s favourite song.”
5. Fred Jones Part 2
“Yeah, and all of these bastards have taken his place, he’s forgotten, but not yet gone.”
6. Brick
“Driving back to her apartment, for the moment we’re alone. And she’s alone and I’m alone and now I know it…”
7. Rock This Bitch (New York version)
“R.O.C.K. with your C.O.C.K. out in N.Y.C.”
8. Army
“In this time of introspection, on the eve of my election, I say to my reflection: God, please spare me more rejection.”
9. All U Can Eat
“See that asshole with the peace sign on his license plate? Giving me the finger and running me out of his lane. God made us number one because he loves us the best, well he should go bless someone else for a while, give us a rest.”
10. You To Thank
“Christmas came around and everything was going to crap. For moms and dads not a clue to be had; we put on a pretty good act and they seemed to all need to believe it. So we danced and smiled and paddled hard beneath it.”
11. Landed
“Down came the reign of the telephone tsar, it’s OK to call.”
12. Bitches Ain’t Shit
“I used to know a bitch named Eric Wright, we used to roll around and fuck the hoes at night. Tight than a mutharfucka with the gangsta beats and we was ballin’ on the muthafuckin’ Compton streets…” (it’s not autobiographical…)
13. Gone
“I wake up in the night all alone, and that’s alright. The chemicals are wearing off
since you’ve gone.”
14. Trusted
“She’s gonna be pissed when she wakes up, for terrible things I did to her in her dreams.”
15. Still Fighting It
“Everybody knows, it sucks to grow up,and everybody does; it’s so weird to be back here.”
16. Not The Same
“They come knocking at your door with this look in their eyes, you’ve got one good trickand you’re hanging on…”
17. Rock This Bitch (Perth version)
“We’re gonna rock this bitch orchestrally.”
18. The Luckiest
“What if I’d been born 50 years before you in a house on the street where you lived.
Maybe I’d be outside as you passed on your bike; would I know?”

    Very nice!I love “Fred Jones”, it’s just such a perfect little sad song. Now that I’m well on my way to middle age, I can totally relate! (unfortunately!)

    And I still totally agree with you that The Luckies is one of the most beautiful love songs ever.
