2 o’clock Break : The Beck Collection “Loser”

This week on the 2 o'Clock Break, we are exploring the music of Beck.  I find that many Beck fans do not always realize that he uses samples.  While his vocal samples are obvious, he often uses musical loops and breaks to create his tunes.  

In 1994, Beck made a huge alternative music splash with his hit "Loser."  This Alternative Rock gem, uses a southern rock cover of Dr. John's "I Walk On Gilded Splinters".

 

 

That's Johnny Jenkin's version of the Dr. Jon classic.  Beck used those super funky drums on "Loser".  Take a listen…
