Ben Folds' comic approach to songwriting may have won him the adoration of college fans, but his most formidable skill is a Midas touch with people and musical subgenres that, until he has his way with them, are considered way uncool.

Six years ago, Folds lent his skills to William Shatner's Has Been, a record that far exceeded (admittedly low) expectations. Last year, Folds released University A Cappella!, on which college a cappella groups cover his songs.
Folds has never claimed to be hip. He's made a career of poking fun at pop culture, pop music and his own popularity. And in flaunting his special brand of uncool, he's become more popular than ever.
