The 11 Best Beck B-Sides

Fifteen years later, Beck has weathered the storm and grown better with age. His newest album promises to be as unique and textured as any release in his arsenal. While digesting it, let's reflect on an aspect of Beck's explansive catalogue that sometimes goes overlooked...his B-sides. With the strength of some of these songs, one has to wonder how many other unreleased songs the guy must be sitting on. Beck box set anyone?

Here are The 11 Best Beck B-Sides:

1. One of These Days (Mutations B-Side)
2. Diamond in the Sleaze (Mutations B-Side) MP3
3. Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Soundtrack)
4. Burro (Odelay B-Side - Spanish Jackass)
5. Bad Catridge (Gameboy Variations - E-Pro Remix)
6. Salt in My Wound (Midnight Vultures B-Side)
7. Electric Music and the Summer People (Mutations B-Side)
8. Halo of Gold (Mutations B-Side)
9. Diamond Dogs (Moulin Rouge Soundtrack)
10. Fume (Mellow Gold B-Side)
11. This is My Crew (Midnight Vultures B-Side)

Gotta say, I'd probably drop a few of the Mutations b-sides (diamond in the sleeze, one of these days) in turn for the reject version of soul suckin' jerk and runners dial zero, a REALLY different b-side from the mutations era. also, i think the original odelay-era version of electric music is better than the mutations-era remake. it's kinda funny, a lot of my friends love mutations, but it's actually my least favorite period of beck's music. it's good, i just don't like it as much as his others, and it isn't that i like his goofier/weirder stuff more, cause i LOVE one foot... and sea change.

Okay, "Diamond Dogs" is a nice cover version, but you've got to jettison it in favor of "MTV Makes Me Wanna Smoke Crack," a "Loser" B-side.
