I really prefer this song, but for some factor I didn"t realize it was supposed to be Ben Folds Five style parody for a year or so after hearing it
. I kbrand-new Ben is playing in it and also I was currently acquainted with his music, but I assumed it"s simply 2 buddies collaborating . Now that I know, I notification the similarities, yet it still does not FEEL prefer BFF to me - probably I"m listening to them also a lot (like some Queen fans don"t think "Ringtone" sounds choose Queen). Also I had this silly hypothesis that Al and also Ben are also oppowebsite creatively - Ben renders stuff up on spot, while Al overthinks every little thing and also is a really predictable perchild in basic, so perhaps he made a song too tidy and orderly or somepoint... I can not put my finger on it

Around the moment of Poodle Hat, I recall Al saying somepoint to the effect of this song starting out trying to be a Ben Folds Five style parody yet it morphed right into its very own thing. I would certainly guess that they collection out to perform a BFF style parody however as soon as the 2 of them acquired right into the studio, the song obtained away from them and also became its very own thing of beauty. Having sassist that, the opening piano riff and also the solo are quintimportant Ben Folds, as good as the finest of his very own songs.

I haven"t heard that, that defines whatever
. Yeah, the solo is awesome!
Theme-wise, this song reminds me of First World Problems as both narrators in the song are upcollection over something petty
Pretty good song. Lyrically speaking it"s funny.
