I am so excited about Becks new Song Reader that to prepare for it's release I have been going thru his library and came across this slice of genius. Satan Gave me A Taco (1994) was one of Allen Ginsberg's favorite songs. In an interview he was asked about the idea that poetry was dead and he scoffed and held Beck up as vibrant proof that it was not only alive, it was extraordinary.
"...if you listen to.. especially Beck now, who's a great words man, a great poet, a great interesting, you know, pop poet, but better than that, the lyrics he has on that Stereopathetic Soulmanure album - "Satan Gave Me A Taco" - are very...do you know that? - it's a thing about - he walks into a taco stand and takes a very hot taco which burns him up, and suddenly he finds himself in the fires of Hell in front of a judge, with all sorts of devils around him, and he's being judged, and the judge says "You're condemned to hell", and then he sees fires and noises around him, and lights, and its horrible, and all the appurtances of Hell, and booming noises, and he realizes he's on a rock n roll sound-stage! , so he joins a band, and then he drinks up all the Coca-Cola, sniffs up all the cocaine, and makes love with all the girls back-stage, and the band gets killed in a plane-crash, so he goes on to solo act, and then he becomes very rich, and finally he opens up a string of taco stands. So very funny like the snake that's holds its tail in its mouth, ouroboros, he's got this very funny conception, very beautiful music and words that are very very clear and amusing so that's a very good thing."
