Getting Run Over By A Brand New Range Rover

Rivers Cuomo: Great musician or greatest musician?  I don’t know yet.  Should he release another album on par with their first self titled album or Pinkerton then he will most likely cement his legacy.  In recent years Weezer has only put out a few worthy songs, but even those don’t compare to some of the b-sides and out-takes from their nineties heyday.

Next month, Geffen records will be releasing Pinkerton: Deluxe Edition, which will include a remastered Pinkerton plus unreleased songs and b-sides.  One of the unreleased songs, ‘Getting Up & Leaving,’ is a song I flew halfway across the country to hear, but the n00bs attending what should have been a l33t fest hindered that attempt dramatically.  Fortunately, though, we did get to hear (and sing along to) the Weezer masterpiece, “Waiting on You.”  I wholeheartedly believe this is one of the top five Weezer songs of all time and it’s a shame the general public is largely unaware of its existence.

Waiting On You

    Across the Sea is definitely in the top 5. One of my all time favorite Weezer lines is in ATS, “oh how I need a hand in mine to feel.” It’s one of the best moments on Pinkerton.

  2. there’s a terrible cover of Holliday out there by a band YACHTS. apparently the girl from YACHTS started the old geekrocklove weezer fansite. the two facts don’t really line up…

  1. No trackbacks yet.
