“Orphans” by Beck feat. Cat Power

So, I worked for 14 hours on Saturday. I went in at 10am and didn’t leave until 12:30am. I ate half a sushi roll all day long and only took a 15 minute break. On that break I chose to buy a CD. I had a hard time making the purchase because I thought to myself– why would I work all day long just to spend it on something I don’t need? But then I remembered why I got a second job in the first place. It was, more or less, because I wanted to be able to fund my music addiction without feeling guilty for not being able to afford it. Yes, I still buy CDs and LPs and EPs, most online but sometimes I wait until CDs hit the stores.

Anyway, I bought Beck’s new album, Modern Guilt. It was released on July 8, 2008. Two songs are collaborations with Cat Power, the stage name for singer/songwriter Charlyn Marshall. This song is one of those collaborations.
