I really think I better get a hold of myself
Don't wanna let the night get ahead of myself
Whisperin' her love through a smoke ring smile
She doesn't know what happens when she's around

I think I'm in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so
I think I'm in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so

Doodododododooodoo

Probably lay my head on a wooden floor
Tell her I was tired from working the store
Counting all the cash from an old shoebox
Saving up to buy her something she wants

I think I'm in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so
I think I'm in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so

What if it's wrong?
What if it's wrong to pray in vain?
What does it mean
To fake your death?
To wake up tainted?

Take a little picture in a photobooth
Keep it in a locket and I think of you
Both of our pictures, face to face
Take off your necklace and throw it away

I think I'm in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so
I think I'm in love
But it makes me kinda nervous to say so

Really think I better get a hold of myself
Don't wanna let the night get ahead of myself
Whisperin' her love through a smoke ring smile
She doesn't know what happens when she's around

I think I'm in love
Think I'm in love
Think I'm in love
Think I'm in love

Think I'm in love
Think I'm in love
Think I'm in love
Think I'm in love

Beck is so talented, it´s always great when you play his songs, Bill. Tks

Yeah, having low standards is not the reverse of being snobby.  There's a reason that Bud/Miller/Coors (and Dos Equis) must be ice cold.

Well, there's his problem - he should be drinking Beck's.

 
I wondered how long it would be before someone noticed that coincidence.  By his countless posts berating Beck in the comment threads for every single Beck song in the RP playlist, it's obvious that Dos Equis does not think much of Beck(s).

Catchy as hell! Excellent rhythmic nuances I can never resist tapping along to! I LOVE the breaks, shifts, and wryness in Beck's tunes!

That's surprising.  But you sure picked a good one to start with.
This whole disc gets regular play in my headphones.

You have a lot more awesomeness to discover in the world of Beck!
 
My first Beck experience was when I was a kid and I knew all the words to every Weird Al song, and in part of a song he spoofed "Loser,"
so in turn I learned Beck's first big hit. A few years later when I started listening to real music that helped lead me into real Beck songs. However, like most people, Odelay was the first Beck album I heard/liked.

I have no problem with any musician's religious beliefs* as long as they don't attempt to proselytize or admonish their listeners with church doctrine. That's my major problem with reggae. That and the generally crappy music.

He's a frightfully clever little fellow and no mistake.
I'd say Beck and Neil Young are the two RP mainstays who don't have a single song I could say for certain that I like.

I loved his performance of this on SNL. The puppet avatars are a hoot--and a wry commentary on what it is to perform for a living, something Cobain couldn't get his arms around, but Beck seems to have found a way to deal with.

As others have stated, Seachange is quite the heartbreak album and worth a listen.
This is one of those fun tunes that makes me smile every time I hear the opening chords.

:think: :high-five: Something like this, while quite nice, isn't more than just that. But folks salivate because it's more product under the Beck logo. The Odelay album was full of wonderfulness, but then it started to sound self-consciously "aren't I the greatest?" Hard to pin that down, I know, because what's the difference between that and someone else who keeps releasing records without sounding egotistical. You know, I just tried to think of a good example of that and I couldn't.
I loves this album. Nigel Godrich's production weirdness compliments Beck's writing weirdness very nicely. Makes me happy.

This is messed up... I try REALLY hard not to like Beck. But then I'm listening to RP well I'm in the other room and some strange, groovy, infectious song comes on.

why do you try really hard to not like him?

This is just a fun funky catchy tune. Beck is always surprising me :music: It has the wierd vibe of modern technology vs love (Now that I think of it most Beck comes across like that for me) :bounce:
Great simplicity displayed on this one...musically, lyrically, vocally. Sounds like he wrote it (and recorded it) in about half an hour. And yet the result was something wonderful.

so you're saying that 'Sea Change' doesn't sound like it's from the heart? ... you may want to rethink that.
I can't imagine listening to a whole album of his style but I love little tastes here and there. Always a pleasure in a mix.

The only one who could say that with a straight face is one who has only heard, say, his 5 or so biggest hits. Repeat, listen to Sea Change.

Not to defend the song (which I'm now convinced is every bit as bad as almost all of Beck's other songs), but what the hell does his religion have to do with the music?
If Scientology was actually a faith-based organization I wouldn't mind as much, either. A clever money-grubbing scheme getting tax breaks is more like it. But, then again, don't a lot of the powerful religions make money exploiting spiritual teachings? I am learning to separate the artist from the art, but it's not easy. Beck's music speaks to me.

Similar to "Kidsmoke" by Wilco? Still good, despite the Scientology.

Didn't care much for him, but I don't think I really knew him well enough. How often is that true? The more I hear him, the more I realize why people say he's a true artist.
Ditto. I didn't really care for him at first, now I'm buying his CDs. Just took me a while.
I can't help liking anything Beck does... That said, the dirgebox that was "sea change" is by far my favourite of all his albums. Talk about tear out my still beating heart!

I find myself asking...Is this the Beck I know and Love?? This album just doesn't get me groovin like Midnight Vultures does.....
I like them both. Granted, Midnite Vultures makes me want to do a whole lot more than just SHAKE my booty, :dancingbanana_2: but they're both definitely groovy.

Interesting... I haven't generally liked Beck's earlier style, but I am intrigued by this album. Does that mean he's alienating his fans a bit?
not me. i've got every one of his records and this is right up there with odelay.
i love the low budget videos he's got for every song on this album. the one for this song is particularly funny.

God, he just does the same stuff over and over. Sea Change was the only album he's done that stuck out at me because it was a divergent from his usual repetition. A 6 is being generous here.
That's the very opposite of what I would say. I'm not sure I know of any other artist who's style is so divergent from one album to another. I don't think you'll convince too many people that Mellow Gold, Midnite Vultures, and One Foot in the Grave sound much alike. Maybe his lyric style ties them together...

That would explain why Sea Change actually appealed to me & all the rest of his stuff sounds like :ass:

Yes and add Elevator Music and Soldier Jane. I'm pretty sure if you don't like Guero or The Information that you might be slightly musically retarded. Seriously, have yourself checked. 8)

Agreed. Plus, Beck is not obnoxious about being a Scientolgist, as opposed to Tom Cruise. Beck admitted his connection to Scientology only after being questioned about it, and he has not made numerous pompous statements in the press about the superiority of his belief system.

Notwithstanding the handful of great songs on Sea Change, Mutuations was Beck's last great album. Guero had a smaller handful of decent songs and, while Midnite Vultures was damn cool, it wasn't truly "great". I'm afraid from what I've heard of The Information, it seems to continue the musical fluff thing he's got going on. SteveGriff wrote:
I wasn't that big of a fan of Guero. Guero feels like the workprint and The Information the final version to me. What other Beck song off the Information have you heard? I've listened to the songs off the Information now for about 3 months (starting with Cell Phone's Dead up until the leak a few days ago), and it seems that song for song, Beck hasn't done something this consistently good since Mutations or Odelay. Midnite Vultures, Guero pales compared to this album IMO. But meh, it's my opinion. Sea Change however, is the black sheep in the family.
Funny, just checking the songs off The Information that are on Radio Paradise's playlist. I think I would have uploaded along with Cell Phone's Dead and Think I'm In Love, Strange Apparation, No Complaints, and Movie Theme. Strange App and No Complaints are old school classic Beck and are very good. Movie Theme would appeal to all those Broken Drum, Paper Tiger, Lonesome Tears, Ramshackle Beck fans.
