A late discovery...

I always seem to discover good bands years after they've broken up. Thus why I have spent the last couple of months catching up with the back-catalogue (of 4 albums) of Ben Folds 5. Here are a couple of my favourites:



Ben Folds 5 - Kate (Whatever and Ever Amen)
She plays wipeout on the drums,
The squirrels and the birds come
Gather round and sing the guitar.
Oh I, haven't got nothing to say.

When all words fail she speaks,
Her mix-tapes a masterpiece.
Walks through the garden
So the roses can see
Oh I, haven't got nothing to say.

And you can see daisies in her footsteps.
Dandilions, butterflies,
I wanna be Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate.

Everyday she wears the same thing,
I think she smokes pot.
She's everything I want,
She's everything I'm not.
Oh I, haven't got nothing to say.

She doesn't get when she smiles
And it's a rainbow. (Oh-oh)
And she speaks,
And she breathes.
I wanna be Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate.

Down by the Rosemary and Cameron,
She hands out the Bhagavad Gita.
I see her round every couple of days.
I wanna see her so that I can say,
Kate.

She doesn't get when she smiles
And it's a rainbow. (Oh-oh)
You can see,
I wanna wanna wanna be,
Kate,
Kate,
Kate,
Kate.
(Nah-nah)
Kate,
Kate,
Kate,
Kate.
(Nah-nah-nah-nah)



Ben Folds 5 - Julianne (Ben Folds 5 (US))
I met this girl she looked like Axl Rose,
Got drunk and took her home
And we slept in her clothes.
And in the morning put my feet on the floor and though,
"Being awa-ke, never felt like, this before..."

Now Julianne you know she wouldn't approve,
Talked only on the phone cause I had nothing to do.
Being awake never felt so clear and

Oooh, that's all I knew,
Guess that I was innocent too.
I'll sing a song and it won't be the blues,
Cause I don't miss Julianne.

My friend told she felt sorry for me,
She said the truth would come crashing down on me.
That I'd be sorry, but the truth of it is,
That I feel guilty for not giving a sh*t.

Oooh, that's all I knew,
Guess that I was innocent too.
I'll sing a song and it won't be the blues,
Cause I don't miss Julianne.

I got my bag of trash,
I got my bag of trash,
I drag it up and down I drag it up and down the road.
How could she miss a man,
Who drags a bag of trash down the road?

This week I feel like I been born again,
I knew that Julianne would have a fit.
She'd find a reason for the things that I did,
And gave me credit for the things that I've never been.

Oooh, that's all I knew,
Guess that I was innocent too.
I can try just as hard as I can,
But I don't miss Julianne.

Oooh, that's all I knew,
Guess that I was innocent too.
I can try just as hard as I can,
But I don't miss Julianne.



Ben Folds 5 - Satin is my Master (Naked Baby Photos (US))
Satin is my master,
And he has always been.
He tells me what to do,
He buys my Metallica records for me.
And sometimes I think...

*Hard-rock type smashing of everything*

Satin is my master.

"Kate" Has been my theme song since I was in grade 9. My friend Chris would come up behind me in public places and sing "I wanna see her so that I can say hey.....KATE!!!!!!"
