Song for the Dumped - Ben Folds (live)

Dumped is probably the most bitter and juvenile breakup song you will ever hear. I do believe it was my first real exposure to the Ben Folds Five, other than their overplayed top 40s stuff. I absolutely love it, mostly for its raw hurt and honesty, coated with self-deprecating humor.

This version is snagged from a bonus video included on the Ben Folds Live extras DVD. Other than this, i don't think i've heard any other clips of Ben playing it solo. I realize i'm crossing the breakup song threshold with this one, but it's rare and i'm seeing him in concert this week, so an exception must be granted. Listen and enjoy.
