"Where It's At" is the first single from Beck's 1996 album, Odelay. Many have commented that the strength of both "Where It's At" and Odelay confirmed that Beck was not a novelty act or one-hit wonder.
A looped keyboard riff and Beck's intricate lyrics dominate the song.
In the first verse, Beck develops the scene: there is a party taking place "up the road from the habitations and the towns we know", where one can experience "the jigsaw jazz and the get-fresh flow". The second verse is a surreal description of those attending the party.
Beck wrote "Where It's At" in 1995. He premièred it at Lollapalooza 1995, in a version very similar to its incarnation on Odelay. He has played the song very often since 1995, although he regularly experiments with the music and lyrics.
