Picture Today, I’ve decided to post a cover of Beck’s song “Jack-Ass” from the album Odelay. Listening to Beck’s lyrics, I’m intrigued by some of his words that may be interpreted in an astrological light. Moreover, he is passionate and profound.

“Jack-Ass” is a good lesson in how to make the text of a piece of music stand out. One will notice the chord progression is actually not a progression at all, really, just the alternation between A and D Major. With such a simple instrumental texture, one which repeats itself with minor timbral differences throughout the song, the words and their meaning(s) come to the fore.
