Beck Apologizes In Advance For Jacked-Up Lyrics

Beck Apologizes In Advance For Jacked-Up Lyrics


This just in: Beck’s Odelay reissue (released two days ago on Geffen) is suffering from a bit of a snafu in the printed lyrics dept, but he’s taking a proactive step to let you know he’s aware of the situation:

The first pressing of the recent Odelay Deluxe Reissue was found to have gone out with unproofed lyrics that were taken from a lyrics website as place holders for layout purposes.

Beck apologizes for this unfortunate oversight and is making arrangements for the corrected lyrics to be available gratis via Subsequent pressings of the Odelay Deluxe will also include the corrected lyrics.

We have a couple of questions regarding this announcement: With the exception of Beck himself, who the hell’d actually be able to tell if the lyrics are printed incorrectly on that particular album? Just as well use a few nonsensical spam messages and call it a day (“Jackass” excepted). Next question, would those be Lyricsdepot lyrics, lyrics, Lyricsforall lyrics, or an entirely different (albeit equally altogether incorrect) member of the 49,500 google results for odelay lyrics?
