Top 10 Best Beck SongsIf we were to draw a line across the landscape of modern alternative music, few artists would cut as distinct and diverse a path as Beck. Born Bek David Campbell and later known as Beck Hansen, the artist simply known as Beck has become a musical chameleon over the years, constantly reinventing his style, surprising us with each twist and turn in his career.
Now, what about his songs? Well, when it comes to determining the best Beck songs, the process is anything but simple. Known for his genre-bending discography that transcends the barriers of folk, rock, hip-hop, electronic, and even country, Beck has treated his fans to a wild, whimsical journey since he burst onto the scene with his first major hit, "Loser," in the early '90s.
From the sardonic drawl of "Devil's Haircut" to the funky, smooth beats of "Where It's At," to the folksy echoes of "Lost Cause," each Beck song has a unique story to tell, a different mood to impart. His knack for blending disparate elements into cohesive and incredibly catchy tunes has never ceased to amaze us. The beauty of Beck's music is that there are so many layers to appreciate, no matter what your musical preferences are.
Indeed, if you're reading this, you likely have your own personal top picks of his best songs. Perhaps it's the haunting harmonica of "One Foot in the Grave" that gets your vote, or maybe the energetic electronic beats of "E-Pro." Or perhaps you're more drawn to the emotional vulnerability of "Guess I'm Doing Fine." That's the great thing about Beck's discography - it's as diverse as his fanbase.
In this list, every song is a potential number one. Your vote counts and can potentially tip the scales. So, dive in, reminisce, and make your opinion count by voting for the Beck songs that you believe truly deserve to stand at the top. Don't forget, this is not just a list - it's a celebration of Beck's musical journey as seen through the eyes of his fans.
Loser may not be the best song by Beck in some people's eyes, but to me it always will be. In fact, when I wrote my own list of the top 200 songs of all time, loser was number 22. NUMBER 22! That's really really good compared to all the other songs ever made!
One specific thing I remember about Loser was in the summer of 2015. My friends were really into rap music and would always ''drop eacother beats" or whatever, and rap popular Eminem songs of that era. One day, someone dropped me a so called beat, and because I didn't really know any rap songs, I decided to do loser. And they called me loser for the rest of the year. But I didn't mind. Because really, aren't we all losers?
Soy un perdedor.
I am writing this to make it look like I know a lot about Beck but to be honest, I hate Beck. I have listened to this one song maybe twice in my whole life, but I am not even talking about Beck in this paragraph. I am writing to act like I Know a lot, but in retrospect, I am just doing this so you will look at this paragraph and say to yourself, "Well this guy wrote a lot," but then when you read this, you will think I am a jerk for wasting your time, but you are wasting your time anyway by listening to Beck
This is definitely the best Beck song there is, and one of the best ever written. "They know your secrets, and you know theirs; this town is crazy, nobody cares". Nothing hits me as much as this line.
This song made me cry... Need I say more?
So tender. Beautiful melody.
There's a destination a little up the road, from the habitations and the towns we know. The place we saw the lights turn low, the jigsaw jazz and the get fresh flow. Pullin' out jives and jamboree handouts, Two turntables and a microphone. Bottles and cans, just clap your hands, clap your hands. -Where It's At.
This is definitely his best rap song, and probably the best of his.
Great little intro, and really catchy rapping and lyrics.
Damn this song is amazing. Pure banger.

Such a great song.
Beck Hansen and Jack White in the same song?! Why isn't this higher on the list? Love this one!
Yeah, why isn't this song higher? That sexy groove!
This most certainly deserves to be higher. It's a very different kind of a Beck track with a jazzy RNB feel to it
Of all the songs why was this one left off the list, listen to it, its amazing!
