Farm Aid Music Monday, Starring Beck

MattToday’s Music Monday features the singer-songwriter Beck at Farm Aid 1997 (so far his only appearance, although I’d love for that to change). Beck was one of my favorite artists at the time; I was amazed at the variety of musical styles incorporated into his work. After the initial hype of his hit song "Loser" wore off, I was overjoyed to hear other songs by him that ranged from and blended hip-hop, folk, country, blues, psychedelia, experimental noise, and probably twenty other genres.

In any case, check out his Farm Aid performance (from Tinley Park, Illinois, where Farm Aid would return in 1998 and 2005) below, including a duet with Willie Nelson.
