Video: Beck performs David Bowie’s ‘Sound and Vision’ with 160-piece orchestra

Check it out.

    Any area musician NOT attend that gig? Beck is only missing Tuvan throat singers, a klezmer band, and the human beat-box.

    I like Beck and adore Bowie, but… I don’t get this, as an advertising campaign. Or (gasp) am I Lincoln’s target customer?! I grow old, I grow old…

    Wow; if that wasn’t underwhelming I don’t know what is.

    Love Beck, Bowie and the song, but this is disappointing. The arrangement is overblown and gimmicky, and Beck just doesn’t have the vocal chops to tackle this song.
