Ben Folds Does a Tiny Desk Concert and Forgets His Lyrics, Like the Cute Curmudgeon He Is

Chatroulette enthusiast Ben Folds put on a little concert for NPR’s Tiny Desk series, which you may associate with the thing that showed people that T-Pain could sing without Auto-Tune. Ben Folds pulls up to the piano and sings a few songs (“Phone in a Pool,” “Capable of Anything,” and “Emaline”), forgets the lyrics for one of them, grouses a bit, wears a newsboy cap, but then when he sings, “You are capable of anything,” you remember what you liked about the old curmudgeon to begin with. Your college boyfriend must be so proud.
