FtTP - Beck + Anyone else

I caught the tail end of Saturday Night Live last night and saw Beck's performance of a song I'll call "Clap Hands," because that could be the title, but I'm not sure. Beck is flaming originality incarnate. "Clap Hands" was a stripped down ditty wherein Beck played a cheesy, cheap-looking small guitar - truly, it looked like a toy - and his bandmates played flatware on a table and on the dishes on the table. Catchy, it was.

Beck was featured in the September 2006 issue of Wired Magazine. He's reinventing the concept of an album in the digital age, deciding that a static 13-track CD just isn't going to cut it. With his new album, Guero, he created a variety of versions of songs for consumers and provided stickers with his CDs so that users can customize the cover. For his forward-thinking attitude, I'd Frankenstein the Talent Pool by adding Beck to anyone else in any other field just to see what he'd come up with.
