Saturday Musical Tribute, and a Question (but not a "Question of the Day")

Harrogate's engine searches for this version of "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" has led to an odd conflict of information.

Hmmmmmmm. Is this version by Warren James (of whom Harrogate has never heard), or is it by Beck, or is it by someone altogether different?

Either way it is freakin awesome, and some might even go so far as to say it has the Rufusness.

Have a great weekend Situationers!!!

finally Harrogate has discerned that this version is definitely by Beck. and this makes him happy.

I'm a little late on this one, but I LOVE this song and I'm so glad it's Beck. Also, Harrogate, I must compliment you on your labels. Rufusness is the obvious source of my compliment, but I'm also loving the Jim Carey thought. I am one of those people who doesn't love Jim Carey in a slapstick role, but really digs him in something a little more serious.

Funny, Harrogate found the comment because he went back to listen to the song, which has been on his mind again these days.

And of course, it is interesting that we are happy it is Beck. Harrogate, in truth, was pulling for this result from the moment his search fo answers began. Sometimes Ethos is the undisputed trump card and Logos just has to suck it up.

As for the Carrey label, thanks for the compliment. At the time that he concoted it, Harrogate remembers thinking, this is just one of those labels that is true.

BTW. Harrogate himself likes the slapstick stuff too (of course he does!).
