Sometimes the addition of one production element can make all the difference.

 

Ben Folds turns 50 today and to mark that occasion on the Shadow we’ll play two versions of a Ben Folds song, yet neither is a cover. In 2005, Ben released the album ‘Songs For Silverman’ which contains the song “Landed”. At some point, for whatever reason, the song had a string arrangement added to it, which, to me, made an already amazing song even better. Submitted for your judgement/approval…

 

The album version of ‘Landed’.

And, the ‘Strings’ Version.
