I’m sure this will be taken off of You Tube by the time people try to watch it, but I thought I’d try to post it anyway. It’s a video of Beck’s performance on SNL two weekends ago. It’s pretty good, but I’d have to argue that it sounds like Beck stole his catchy little riff from The Unicorns. That little guitar bit is contained in their song “Child Star” near the end. If you have the cd, listen. You’ll hear it. It’s a tiny bit different, but it’s close enough for me to think “I’ve heard that before. That’s not his.”

Beck, I think you’re good, but Canadians beat you to that melody.
