204 – Beck – Lonesome Tears (2002)
Written by Beck Hansen
Produced by Nigel Godrich
Label – Geffen
If any music listener wanted to know how a producer can turn a great song into a stellar song, then Nigel Godrich’s genius on Beck’s devastatingly sad ballad is the gem I always consider to be amongst the best. The string arrangement is relatively simple, and yet builds to a incredible crescendo that reminds me of “A Day In The Life”.
