While recording Beck's 1996 album of the same name, the then-unnamed track 'Lord Only Knows' was written down by the engineer as 'O-Del-Ay' based on his phoenetic understanding of the outro vocal. Beck is ACTUALLY singing "Γ“rale", which is a common Hispanic term meaning:

1. affirmation that something is impressive, exclamatory
2. an agreement with a statement (similar to 'word')
3. alarm, surprise or danger
4. a simple greeting
5. "hurry up"

Beck liked the misspelling, naming the album after it. As such, the word carries a similar exclamatory function to it's Spanish pronunciation.
"Odelay, Odelay! Just passing through."

Spanish (mexican-american) slang for, "RIGHT ON!", or "Alright!".

The expression was coined first by CHICANOS (California-based Latinos) during the mid 20th century (around 60's)

It is NOT a word that is used by all Latinos. Homeboy's use the term a lot
Lil Joker: Hey, Esse-- lets go cruise the calle in el chingon lowrider.

Sad Boy: Odelay.
