I Feel Low Down [Version (a)]:

I feel low down, I feel so down
I feel low down, oh yeah

The Song:

This is the most brilliant song ever written in the history of all mankind. Recognize Beck and his jug!

Or: this tune was probably intended as tape filler. Over a jug, Beck sings in a mechanically altered voice, which makes it sound as if he's been breathing helium.

Or: the original version of this song, I'm told, is by Whistler and his Jug Band, a jug band from the '30s. Whistler was famous for the lost art of the nose whistle! Perhaps that's what Beck is doing here too!?
