Beck - Mellow Gold

Failure can now be celebrated with this paradoxical hymn that manages to be both catchy and apathetic. The lyrics are somewhere at a crossroads between humor and despair, surrender and pessimism, with a side-dish of sarcasm. And they’re being delivered with the perfect voice and intonation.

“Someone keeps sayin’ I’m insane to complain
About a shotgun wedding and a stain on my shirt
Don’t believe everything that you read
You get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve
So shave your face with some mace in the dark
Savin’ all your food stamps and burnin’ down the trailer park
Yo, cut it
Soy un perdedor
I’m a loser baby so why don’t you kill me?”
