Music Monday Jan. 2: Beck


There is a radio show on CBC here in Canada that occasionally does a feature called SYNTH: Songs You Need To Hear.

Now, I can’t say to someone, “You’ll like this song” (or book for that matter) because I can’t presume that others will share my taste in music (or books), so it is safer to say, “You might like this” and if they don’t like it, so be it.

Maybe you will find a new favorite.

Beck. Loser. No, he’s not a loser, but he is probably best known to that song, so I won’t share it here.

He’s been around a long time, and his style has changed over the decades, but he seems to always write songs that he likes, never (or almost never) jumping on a bandwagon.

I can’t say I like all of his music, but here are two very different selections.

From 1994:

From 2014:

For my Music Mondays this year, I have decided to share some other Music Mondays (or Tuesdays) I have come across or follow. I’ll start with Clive because:

1) we share similar tastes in music, and
2) he puts way more work into his features than I do.

Anyone who shares Fleetwood Mac gets a thumbs-up.

  1. I’m never sure if I like Beck or not, but you’ve picked two good ones here. And thanks for the plug, kind of you and much appreciated – though there isn’t going to be a post tomorrow! 😊
