Song Of The Day: Beck – “Girl” (2005)

Happy 47th birthday to Beck Hansen, better known as Beck, one of the leading lights in Rock music today. Has any other Rock artist covered more stylistic ground than this guy? Folk, acoustic blues, soul, psychedelia, hip hop, avant-garde electronica, electro-funk, 60s pop, 70s pop, 80s pop, country, and good old fashioned alternative Rock. His brilliant 2014 folk-Rock album Morning Phase won Grammy’s Album Of The Year and was completely deserving of the honor. This track from the album Guero is a nice example of how Beck combines great songwriting with his distinctive mastery of arrangement and sound design. He’s like a wacky box of spiked chocolates, you never know how he’s going to blow your mind next.
