Listen: Our Beck Top 5

Following his recent win at the Grammys where he picked up 3 awards including the most prestigious Album of the Year for his latest release Morning Phase, Beck has announced two headline shows in Ireland this summer.

Beck has confirmed he’ll play his first ever show in Cork at Live at the Marquee on 16 June. He’ll also play a special concert at Dublin’s Royal Hospital Kilmainham on 17 June with special guests Jonny Greenwood and the London Contemporary Orchestra.

To celebrate these highly anticipated shows, we have compiled a list of our favourite Top 5 Beck Songs below:

Loser

We’ll start the list with Beck’s breakthrough single “Loser”, which became a global hit in 1994.

Devils Haircut

Next up is the opening track, “Devils Haircut”, from the 1996 critically acclaimed album Odelay.

Where It’s At

Odelay also earned Beck a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 1997. Another favourite of ours from this record is “Where It’s At”.

Sexx Laws

“Sexx Laws” was the lead single from Beck’s funky Midnite Vultures album released in 1999. The wacky video was directed by Beck himself and also features Jack Black.

Lost Cause

Beck deals with themes of heartbreak and loneliness in his 2002 album Sea Changes. “Lost Cause” was released as a single and the original video featuring an effigy of Beck falling from the sky was produced entirely in Adobe Photoshop.

Beck performs live at Cork’s Live at the Marquee on 16 June and the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin on 17 June 2015. Tickets go on sale this Friday 6 March at 09:00.
