No one hears me sing this song
Promo asked me for a Weezer-newbie suggested playlist. Since I'm always one to help out a fan in the making (and get Googled again for my "I Wanna Sex You Up, Rivers Cuomo" campaign), I've put together the first 20 tunes that I would suggest. I tried to pick from all four CDs, plus B-sides, plus new stuff you can get straight from their website. Except for the two new tracks, everything else is linked to its lyrics page at weezerfans.com.
  1. Undone (Sweater Song)
  2. The Good Life
  3. Hash Pipe
  4. Surf Wax America
  5. I Just Threw Out The Love Of My Dreams
    (Rachel Haden on vocals)
  6. Keep Fishin'
  7. Lullaby
  8. Island in the Sun
  9. Say It Ain't So
  10. Pink Triangle
  11. The World Has Turned And Left Me Here
  12. Susanne
  13. Dope Nose
  14. El Scorcho
  15. Buddy Holly
  16. Photograph
  17. December
  18. Tired of Sex
  19. Slob
  20. Private Message

By the way, today's Chicago Tribune had an article that stated: "When the book is finally closed on the alt-rock era, you can be sure there will be a section dedicated to the rise, fall and rebirth of Weezer."

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

No Weezer playlist is complete without Jaimie, the greatest love song written about an attorney ever recorded.

Oh, and Only In Dreams, because it was the first Weezer song I learned how to play on the bass (it's about the easiest song known to man for a bass player), because I won an award in high school for a short film constructed entirely around the song, and because they rocked the house in Tororonto with it on Sunday!

Wow, if I really get going I'll end up with everything, including that rock opera Rivers wrote (the name escapes me right now) and a bunch of Special Goodness, Space Twins, Rentals and even Lush (for the bad relationship with Matt Sharp connection) songs on the list.

I'm clearly outta control, so you take the reins, but please, please be true, you know that I trust you to do that which you must do....

Heh. Tororonto? I'm smart, yes indeed.

Now see, I was theeeeeeees close to adding "Only in Dreams" -- dammit, picking just 20 was hard. Much like math.

I aggree with Erynn, no Weezer playlist would be compleate without Jamie and Only In Dreams. I also think Surf Wax America could be fvurther down on the list... I tend to get sick of it easily.

I just thought I'd throw in "Across the sea" - it's the mostt underrated song they ever did.

Hey, the links don't seem to work on the Weezer lyrics.
