Friday Featured Track
The song that has been on my brain the most this week:
- “E-Pro,” Beck, from his 2005 album “Guero.”
Not only is this rock/rap/pop fusion song incredibly infectious, it’s also one of my favorites to play on “Rock Band 2.” “E-Pro” taught me a valuable lesson about my musical skills: I couldn’t effectively rap if a gangsta held a gun to my head, but I can nah-nah-nah with the best pop princesses out there.
Credited to Beck, the Beastie Boys and the Dust Brothers, the lead-off single of “Guero” represents what makes Beck a uniquely talented artist. It’s inventive, eclectic and gets stuck in your head like nobody’s business.
The driving guitar riffs and frantic drum beats, Beck’s quirky cadence on the evocative but enigmatic vocals and of course, those irrestible nah-nah-nahs keeps your head bobbing along until the song abruptly ends.
Of course, you can’t talk about “E-Pro” without talking about the surreal music video created by the London artist group Shynola. The video, posted here courtesy VH1, features Beck rising from a grave to cavort around a bizarre animated landscape.
