Five Best: Ben Folds Videos

1# – Army

I just love this video, it was one of the first BBF songs I learnt to play but I love the theatricality of the staging and also the lovely buzz bass sound, combined with the honky tonk middle it’s just quite fun!

2# – One Angry Dwarf

Another great song, upbeat, fun, smashing the keys…

3# – From Above

This song is incredibly lovely, about love and finding your soulmate. The video adds to the song and is really well done. Also I really love Nick Hornby’s lyrics.

4# – Philosophy

My favourite bit is how aggressive the piano playing is, that and the epic opening that builds into an almighty crescendo. That and how awkward Jools Holland constantly looks…

5# – Do It Anyway

Fraggle Rock. Need I say more?
