These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Epic Riff: Ben frequently does a piano version; notable ones include "One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces", "Annie Waits", and "Philosophy".
Face of the Band: Even some hardcore BFF fans would be hard pressed to name one other member of the band (Robert Sledge is the bassist and Darren Jessee is the drummer, for the record). This despite Darren writing or co-writing several of their songs. Some even think there's five of them.
Signature Song: Ben Folds Five's is "Brick", while Ben's solo would probably be either "Landed" or "Rockin' the Suburbs".
Strangled by the Red String: Discussed and inverted while still played straight in "From Above", a song about two people who keep running into each-other, know that they should be together, but end up marrying other people and living unfufilling lives.
