Ben Folds Five Lyrics


Related Artist: Ben Folds

Formed in 1994 in the keyboard-unfriendly environs of
Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Ben Folds Five started out
with one big advantage over rival piano-led rock quintets;
there were only three of them. Inspired by Nirvana's sinewy
example ("They were great! It was like having The Who or

Reviews about Ben Folds Five songs

ummmm | Reviewer: me
    ------ About the song Video Killed The Radio Star performed by Ben Folds Five

just to clarify... this is a cover, so technically its one of the best songs of an older era redone by a great band. and we all makes mistakes 'writeing' lyrics you're right. but its ironic you misspell a word when complaining about typos. And chances are they copied and pasted the original lyrics and bf5 redid them a tad. just sayin....


The day after Christmas... | Reviewer: Kent
    ------ About the song Brick performed by Ben Folds Five

...is meaningful for several reasons. Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy and happiness, but for the couple in the song, it is not. Further, Christmas is the celebrated birth date of Jesus, the christened one, whose birth and subsequent death should eradicate death, should give the world hope.

However, the couple's baby will never be born, and the hope a child can give the world (for what is a child but the hope of a brighter future-a better world) will not be theirs--at least not now. In this instance death brings no future, no hope--only sadness and loneliness.

    ------ About the song Leather Jacket performed by Ben Folds Five

Just to follow-up on Jeanette's review, this song was actually written by Darren Jessee, the drummer for Ben Folds Five and now front-man for Hotel Lights. He also is an excellent lyricist, though, in his own right.


about xmas | Reviewer: blake
    ------ About the song Brick performed by Ben Folds Five

alex, to answer your question about the signifigance it was the day after x-mas in the song, it's relavant to the line in the second verse where he is selling some gifts that he got. Those gifts were xmas presents and he is selling them to help pay for the abortion since he cannot ask his (or her) parents for help.


the reason | Reviewer: eric
    ------ About the song Brick performed by Ben Folds Five

Hey the reason he wrote the song is because it happened to him and his girfrield when he was in hight school. They had a abortion. he tells the story in a interview.


This song is so meaningful to me..... | Reviewer: Hope
    ------ About the song Brick performed by Ben Folds Five

I lost my first precious baby on 2/15/98 when I was 16 because I allowed my asshole of a boyfriend and his scumbag of a mother to force me into having an abortion...I was 9 weeks and 3 days pregnant...I know she was a girl...I wanted to name her Esperanza (hope)....I have heard this song only one or two times and have never seen the words in print...I don't ever plan to again...it hurts.... still....
