Learn To Live With What You Are

Ben Folds - Live At MySpace DVDThis coming Tuesday February 20 will mark the release of Ben Folds' "Live At MySpace" DVD which was filmed live at Ben’s studio in Nashville, TN on October 24, 2006 for’s first ever live-by-request webcast. I've never been a fan of MySpace except for it's portal to Music but Ben's MySpace session last October almost convinced me to sign up just to request a song. Given some bandwith issues I was only able to catch a portion of the session during the original webcast but I do recall many of the in-studio audience members joining in in an army of acoustic guitars as Ben and band performed.

Here's a clip of Ben and his band covering of Postal Service's "Such Great Heights":
