"In the middle of a dance floor all alone
In the middle of an old school country song
Right when I was just about to lean on in
Why'd you have to go then?
Baby, in the middle of the glow of the neon light
It shoulda, coulda, woulda been the night of our lives
Girl, it ain't right, no
How you gonna leave me right in the middle of a memory?"

Ashtray full of Marlboro Reds
Empty fifth layin' on the bed
Hangover hangin' on in my head
Along with the damn good bye you said
Got some habits I need to kick
But your at top of my list
Of things I need to quit
This is country music right here fellas
Where has this one been all my life?
First Aid Kit (Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Soderberg) make Paul Simon cry with their rendition of America at the Polar Music Awards. Or maybe Johanna's youth and beauty just made him wistful.

"I dreamed I had a good job and I got well paid.
I blew it all at the penny arcade.
A hundred dollars on a kewpie doll.
No pretty chick is gonna make me crawl.
Get on a TWA to the promised land.
Every woman, child and man.
Gets a Cadillac and a great big diamond ring.
Don't you know you're riding with the king?"
Went and saw Ben Folds play with the Kansas City Symphony last weekend.
!@#$ me, that guy is talented and just entertaining as can be. The set list wasn't exactly the greatest hits of his Ben Folds Five days that would've been the most fun, but a lot of that doesn't exactly lend itself to a symphony. He killed Landed, The Luckiest and Zac and Sara with it, though. You Don't Know Me was good, Effington was solid. And if anyone's been to a Ben Folds concert you know you're likely to hear "ROCK THIS BITCH!" from the crowd at some point and he'll just create a song on the spot. That's not exactly the easiest thing to do with a Symphony but he managed it. He had the lead Flute play a 2-measure melody and went through the reeds, high and low strings, and a few of the brass instruments and created a pretty catchy little tune just having giving them something of a round to play.
We know one of the Violia's and we went out for drinks with her afterwards and she said a lot of them hate it when guys like that come to down because let's face it, that's pretty easy/boring stuff for them to play. But any of them that are my age or within about 10 years on either side grew up watching Ben Folds rise and love the guy.
It was a lot of fun. Not a typical symphony crowd/atmosphere, that's for sure. Great venue as well (new Kaufman Performing Arts Center in KC).
I guess in keeping with the spirit of the thread I should put some links in here for a couple songs:
Zac and Sara (I thought this was the best song he did in the set; really went well with the orchestra)
Landed; also went well with the orchestra, filled the hell out of that hall. Zac and Sara had the most energy but this one would occasional run that tingle up my spine when he'd hit a minor key or something and the whole room would fill with sound.
And for good measure, my favorite Ben Folds song (maybe; Bastard and Do It Anyway are really good also) -- Philosphy:

RIP J. Geils.
Learned Love Stinks for some upcoming gigs, as it's one of their easiest and carries a universal message.
My 3 yr old has insisted on friggen Ben Folds every time we get in the car now because mommy told her we went to see him. I've had this song in my head all day and realize I didn't post a link in my last one.
Just a damn catchy tune...

Allman Brothers had so many good songs it's hard to pick a "best" one. But this is definitely one of my favorites.

scary tune from socially unacceptable days of Pink Floyd.
73 year old Roger was great Saturday night
This is one of my favorites ever. If you haven't listened to Todd Snider, you are missing out:
I sat in the rain for about 6 hours Sunday night, but well worth it. i didn't record this video, just posting one I found online. Anyone who was there would agree, I'm sure, that it was otherworldly good. Oh, and I'm not really a huge Metallica fan but they are extremely skilled musicians and they probably have Disney Imagineers on staff to help script, choreograph and execute the cinematic and lights part of their show.
Save me. Save me from tomorrow
