Beck is Back, with his rendition of “I Only Have Eyes For You”

I just read about Beck and how he will be at Outside Lands this summer, but was wondering if he would share any new projects before August. I mean, he’s one of the most gifted musicians out there, and I’d be perfectly content to see him perform all of his old stuff, which we grew up on, but Beck likes to surprise his fans. “I Only Have Eyes For You”, is a classic Doo-Wop song which was made famous by the Flamingos in the late 50′s early 60′s. Beck has covered “I Only Have Eyes For You”, keeping it rather close to the original, although making it his own just by providing all of the vocals. I never knew had such a smooth and genuine vocal range, I hope he does more singing coming up, on whatever else he is working on. This version will be the soundtrack to a 360 degree video projection art display, that will encompass the outside of Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC.

I best remember “I Only Have Eyes For You” from one of my favorite movies, A Bronx Tale. It would come on when “C” was around a girl he considered to be “the one”. Remember?

Felix the Hat,
Live Music City, high hopes!
