How much does Beck dislike the 'new' version of Cellphones dead ? because every time hes on TV hes like 'if it had the old chorus you would like it'

If he prefered the older version why change it ?

could i get links to these quotes please, thanks

>'if it had the old chorus you would like it'

also that doesn't sound like a statement of his opinion of the song... just a statement of his opinion of fan's opinions of the song, big difference

What's the difference? The old lyrics seriously sucked.

Here we go
stereo
One by one I'll knock you out
We'll go down
Round and round
Round and round
One by one I'll knock you out
Knock you out
Knock you out.

You must be joking. :huh:

Knock out was cool, but it was flat. it's a good live song, but I think it woulda been dull on a record. Cell Phone's Dead adds a whole new world to the song. I personally think it's one of the best Beck songs. My friend says it might be his favorite song EVER. I love it. Why did beck say that? was the crowd not digging it?

i also really really really like the NEW VERSION that was played at the Acoustic Night
