Beck - "Debra"

Among the many thoughts I had after Prince's death, one of them was "Hey, remember that Beck song that was a homage to him?" Well, that's what we thought at the time: "Debra" is, more accurately, a spoof of falsetto, lover-man R&B ballads. I saw Beck perform this during his brief, excellent tour for Mutations, before it was recorded for Midnite Vultures, and it was hoot watching this slender white dude convulse around on a bed while declaring his love for some pretty thing and her sister.

Prince homage or not, it's still very fun.
