Is your count inclusive, or is the count now 373?

kinda like ben folds doing an imitation of billy joel
Very Enjoyable !!
aaah!

 I think this song should be removed. It's inciting to violence...specifically I want to stab my ears with steak knives.
That Piano makes me want to throw the pianist under the lid and jump on it.

Lyrics insipid and syrup...


now Tom Waits is on, Thank God.

Right on both counts.

reminds me a bit of Bruce Hornsby and the Range...which isn't a bad thing IMO.

The lyrics are kind of corny, but musically it's pretty good.
sounds like the sims editor music...
Kinda gushy. ok.
need to hear more to be totally convinced, but this is a great teaser.  nice stuff.
RP strikes again.  I would never have heard this anywhere else in a zillion years. 

And I like it a lot.
The Gabe Dixon Band is a three-piece band
that was formed in the fall of 1998 at the
 University of Miami. Their music is piano-driven
rock akin to Ben Folds Five with a more serious
tone, Jackson Browne and early 70s Elton John.
The band worked with producer/engineer Eddie Kramer
 on their independently released debut album, More
Than It Would Seem, in 1999. They relocated to
New York City after graduation and were signed to
Reprise by David Kahne. After Dixon respectfully
declined the keyboard position on the Paul McCartney
world tour to instead focus on production of the band's
major label debut, On A Rolling Ball was released
in 2002.

Their song "All Will Be Well" off of the 2005 EP
Live at World Cafe rose to moderate prominence when
 it was used in promos for the NBC show Conviction.

The band released their debut album for Fantasy
Records, The Gabe Dixon Band, in August 2008.
In its initial days of release, it has received
praise from the music press and fellow artists.
The band are also set to tour the United States
from Aug 2008 thru Nov 2008 with native New Yorker
turned Canadian resident, newcomer Justin Nozuka.

I was lucky enough to discover them thanks to a friend via their mypsace page some time ago. I really like them. Beautiful

I was fortunate to see the Gabe Dixon Group, he opened for Loggins and Messina (I wasn't a big Loggins and Messina fan, but they have a great band and their concert was super) and Gabe Dixon is a truly great performer and the CD is worth the $.


someone un-wrench my heart please?

I agree! My new favourite band and CD.

It's like a Muzak version of Leo Kottke's "Jack Gets Up". Yawn.

A male Suzanne Vega, but without the fine voice.
This is really an extraordinary work.  I'd already given it a 9 before, but I think I like it even better than that.  A rare 10.  I know it's not earthshattering, but it gets to me.
Wow. That was real good.

I think this is one of the prettiest songs I've heard in a long time.
Nice voice, nice piano.

meh

Exactly!  I was thinking I'd heard that voice somewhere.  It was on The Piano Man back in the day!  :-)
The most interesting new stuff I've heard in some time.
