#340011 Beck on Saturday Night Live (March 1)

Posted by PirateFetus on 01 March 2014 - 11:53 PM

I waited 12 hours in the cold streets of NYC for standby tickets, and managed to get into the rehearsal show! Below are my thoughts about Beck's performance!


They opened with Blue Moon, which sounded really cool live (and I finally figured out how they do the chorus. First I thought it was just 'ooooo', then after we learned it was 'blue moon' I thought he sang 'blue moooOOooOOn', but now I realized it's 'blue, blue moon').


Roger was rocking the keys for the 'beepy' part at the end. I was sitting pretty much as far from the stage as possible but I could see Beck, JMJ, and Smokey from where I was, and had to look to the TV to see the rest of the band. Also, minor note, Beck was NOT wearing his hat during the rehearsal Blue Moon.


During the next few sketches, they rolled away the drum kit and I got confused, "I thought Beck would do another song?" but then I saw them wheeling in the music stands I started getting excited... and sure enough, when Jim Parsons announced Beck again... Wave began. It was amazing on so many levels... the lighting/filming of Beck and positioning of the orchestra.. it was terrifying. Dark. He looked like Dracula or something.


Wave is a very weird choice to play live on national television. So much music these days lacks pain or anger. Even Nine Inch Nails doesn't have much pain in his music anymore. Cynical, dark, yes.. but the days of "Hurt" are over (which is great for Trent). So for Beck to come onto the national stage and play a song so dark, and so full of pain, and so different from what's 'mainstream' these days... it was just really powerful.


What really drove this point home was after he played, and the applause lights went off, the audience (besides me) went dead silent. someone behind me whispered to her friend, 'how is that even music?' or something to that effect... it was really a subversive and kind of rebellious song to play, even though I'm sure that wasn't the intention, he was just being himself!

Thought someone might enjoy my Beck Loser Lego minifig. Sorry for the bad photography.
Would love someone to make a Lego Loser video someday :)
Here is the image I made for the t-shirt sticker as well...

#345603 Finally the Good Guys Won.. Beck vs. Kanye

Posted by foxyo on 26 February 2015 - 12:59 PM

So after rereading my post I think I did a real dis-service to what I was trying to say and I appologize to all the Kanye and Beyonce fans. It is true I am not into their music, and I don't really know much about Kanye or any of them. Who knows maybe he has some songs I would like, I don't know because I never really gave it a chance. I think we ended up talking about Kanye way too much on this post and that's because I provoked it. The reality is I was just mad that someone attacked Beck, because I really really respect him and his music really makes me feel and I just can't seem to find that anywhere. It surprises me when I am listening to Morning Phase to think that this won album of the year, because usually the music I like never gets any recognition. I guess in some weird way I felt like I won the Grammys and Kanye was trying to take it away from me too. Anyhow sorry to anyone that was offended by my comments. Oh and thanks for sharing your viewpoints as well. This is an interesting community. I'll post here again if I ever have some music thing I need to say.

I like the nod, but I feel like a hypocrite basking too in the win too much.  As music fans, you know how often they get these things "wrong."  It's hard to recognize an award show only when your picks win.  Lest we forget that Steely Dan beat both Kid A and Midnite Vultures.  I liked Morning Phase more than the other nominees, but I wouldn't have been upset if Beyonce won.

i posted this in another thread, but i think we should all stop talking about Kanye for a moment and appreciate Chris Martin's look of utter adoration during the Heart is a Drum performance :D
