Top 100 Songs Of The 00’s: “Bruised” by The Bens

by The Bens (2003)

Separately, I’ve been a fan of Ben Folds, Ben Kweller and Ben Lee for years now. They are all amazing and talented artists in their own right. So imagine my exicement when in 2003, all three Bens formed a supergroup called… wait for it… The Bens!

What could have been a pretty cheesy project actually turned out to be something quite great.  The group released a single four song EP in 2003, with each member providing lead vocals on one of the tracks, and then a more collaborative song as well.

“Bruised” is Ben Folds’ vocal contribution to the disc. ┬áCheck it out below, but beware… “Love just leaves you bruised!”
