What I Heard This Morning: Charlotte Gainsbourg & Beck


I understand her peppy, art snob appeal; her wit and bilingual intellect. Charlotte Gainsbourg owns that “thing” that makes her seem interesting enough to star in a surrealistic video with Beck, that thing that made Michel Gondry go, “Yes, she should be in The Science Of Sleep.” I, unfortunately, haven’t been able to get around her painfully dull performance in Jane Eyre.


But, “Heaven Can Wait,” is at least as interesting and vibrant as most Beck songs typically are. The video is strange, but the intended irony just sort of makes the video’s oddities seem more annoying than special. Listen to the song.



Sincerely,
