      Ben Folds has just launched a contest. In his words: "I'm making an
      album of a cappella versions of my music to be performed by the best
      university groups we can find. This idea was motivated by a number of
      amazing university a cappella versions of my songs I came across on
      YouTube. Some of these brought to light unique nuances and perspective
      that is necessarily absent from the original recordings as the
      songwriter and singer happen to be the same guy. I was moved and
      inspired. Some of these versions were an improvement in my humble
      opinion and it would be a great opportunity to capture some of this."
      Ben Folds wants 12 or so tracks from collegiate groups, submitted via
      YouTube. And if you make the cut, he's going to send one of his
      producers to help you record a Ben Folds tune. WOW!
      Note: The deadline is November 14th. More info:
