Bonus Song

Some vinyl albums include bonus songs not found on the CD, either on a 7" single included with the LP or on the LP itself. Ben Folds' Songs for Silverman LP, which I recently picked up, includes this cover of a Dr. Dre song not included on the CD version of the album. Feel free to karaoke.


  1. True dat, nigga!

    Yes, I'm concerned that a friend of mine has a purchased a Ben Folds album, but I know I can't dissuade you from acceding to your deranged palate. Whether it's the stuff you put into your ears or the things you put into your mouth, your tastes are both inscrutable and inflexible.

    As regards this cut, I think it's OK musically, but the lyrics are recited with apparent embarrassment. Folds isn't laughing w/ Dre, he's laughing at him; he's not appropriating "urban culture", he's performing in musical blackface. I don't care for it.

  2. BTW, why the change in blog template? I liked the old one.
