I know! I figured "Pay No Mind" would be 1 of 2 things: Either a Thurstonish TREES/MURRAY ST faithful acoustic version, or a super noisy rawk version; but this was something else entirely. I think for the first half I was like "awe, what a letdown" but by the 2nd half I was like "OMG... I love SY soooo much!"

I hated it, I think I still do, I only gave it a couple listens. Pay No Mind is one of my favourite songs and I think they just lazily butchered it, the pretentious twats.

It was lazy in an awesome way. Though, remember, I'm the one guy who's not in the band that LOVES "Eyes & Teeth".

I was kinda dissapointed....

The original has such a strong quality.

I instantly loved the "green light" cover, it reminded me off something from his early folk period. I wish he'd go back to this style more.Its quite a feat to make a sonic youth song into a beautiful acoustic track.

On the otherside "pay no mind" was nothing what i expected. Its one of my favorite beck songs and i thought theyd do a version of it like they did "im not there". The first half is really deconstructed but then it got great with the noise part sounding like some prime EVOL material and ending with a Dirty kind of rock groove.

They should have pressed more copies of the single, I wasnt able to get one on record store day.

Beck's green light cover is fine. It sounds like a total toss-off though, recorded during studio down-time.

the Pay No Mind is very cool. I have not heard the original but I enjoyed the song for what it was.

that's really surprising to me for some reason. I mean, it wasn't all over the radio or whatever, but it's sort of a signature tune. I'd be as surprised if somebody said "I've never heard 'Serve The Servents" or something like that.

Nope. never heard it before.
why do people complain about malkmus' lyrics being pointless and meaningless and not get on beck's ass about his non-sequitor lyrics? I wonder... so many questions.

i just heard pay no mind. i thought it was cool. i like hearing SY sing the folk tune over the feedback. it was nice to hear them sing in a different meter than what they usually sing in.
they should do more folk stuff

the original pay no mind is the only beck song i'm familiar with(it's in a local skate video from my jr.high days haha) and i thought the sy cover was pretty much boring and pointless

haven't heard the greenlight cover but i'm looking forward to it

I listened to Green Light & Pay No Mind on youtube.
Pay No Mind is pretty boring.
Green Light is pretty good though.
