A great song for Ben Folds to cover

The song “Ariel” by Dean Friedman would be a great song for Ben Folds to do a cover of. It’s in the “piano rock” style of Billy Joel and Elton John, and has one of the greatest lines in the history of music:

I said “hi!” She said “yeah, I guess I am!”

My friends and I burst out laughing after the few seconds it took for that lyric to register.

I just thought I’d mention this - does anyone else here know that song? The name “Dean Friedman” isn’t exactly household.

A friend made me a mix CD and included a song that I really dug. I was sure it was Ben Folds (Five), turns out that it was a song called “Wicked Little Town” from the *Hedwig and the Angry Inch. *
