The Song:

"China Girl" is a song originally by David Bowie and Iggy Pop. They put it on Iggy's album, The Idiot, in 1977 (Bowie was the producer). Six years later, Bowie recorded the song himself with producer Nile Rodgers, for his album, Let's Dance. It then became a pretty big hit song.

Beck's band has been including many covers during band introductions in the middle of a long "Where It's At" jam throughout 2015-2016. In June 2016, Jason Falkner was introduced and he started in on the "China Girl" riff -- and Beck picked up on it and sang the first verse (more or less, at one point, he sang "Jason Falkner" in the melody of "my little China girl").
