Great song: Beck’s “The Golden Age”

I have a guilty pleasure of watching Alias, the TV show, on DVD. It arose from my fascination with the moral ambiguity of La Femme Nikita, the cult classic show that ran for five years. Alias is hardly of the same caliber - it replaces moral ambiguity with heavy-handed plot twisting and frankly absurd storylines - but it’s a lot of fun anyway.

In any case, the episode I’m watching now has Beck’s “The Golden Age” playing in the background of one of the scenes. I have no idea what happened in that scene because I was singing along. I might have to watch the whole episode over again, because I completely just shifted my attention to the song. That’s how good it is.

It’s a treacherous road
With a desolated view
There’s distant lights
But here they’re far and few
And the sun don’t shine
Even when its day
You gotta drive all night
Just to feel like you’re ok
