One: Fun with One

These songs have no real connection except that they all contain "One," and they they're all just a lot of fun.

Ben Folds Five: One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces

I bought Whatever & Ever Amen on a recommendation from MTV's Matt Pinfield back when I still thought MTV was cool. Yeah... it's been a while. This was the first song on that album and the first Ben Folds Five song I ever heard. It's angry and bubbly all at the same time. It's a perfect example of Ben's self proclaimed "punk rock for pansies" style. Bonus points for the GI Joe reference.

Patty Griffin: One Big Love

No anger here... just Patty Griffin getting funky like a monkey. This song is all about swimming in the high tide and walking on air. Let your hair down and enjoy this one from Patty's Flaming Red album.

Keller Williams: One Hit Wonder

There have been a few one hit wonder artists featured here on Star Maker Machine. Keller Williams wishes he was one of them. I don't think you can classify Keller as ever having made a hit himself. He laments that fact here on this track from Laugh.
