The Song:

"Swept Away" can originally be found on Yanni Live At The Acropolis. Beck and his fifth Record Club project covered the album in its entirety.

Yanni's "Swept Away" is a 9.5-minute track, with a solid funky beat (for Yanni) and swirly piano and strings. It occasionally breaks into dramatic uplifting moments of glory, including a drum solo.

The Record Club version is similarly rhythm-heavy, but then there's piano and keyboards and Thurston and Beck doing weird electric guitar all over it.
