Thank God For Girls
Yes. Just…yes. WEEZER HAS A NEW SINGLE. As we were driving down to Indianapolis last weekend, we were listening to my favorite, Alt Nation. A few hours in, and suddenly…is that Weezer? How do I not know this song? What?
I can remember being in 6th grade when they dropped their debut album, the Blue Album. That was around the time I used to spend every weekend skiing at Jack Frost Mountain with my family. I can remember sitting on the chairlift with my brother and our friends from the mountain belting out “Buddy Holly” at the top of our lungs. The obsession continued, and I even had a hamster when I was in middle school named Weezer.
They have quite the discography, with some albums being better than others but they’ve always been a favorite of mine. Their sound, their lyrics, Rivers Cuomo’s voice (did you know he is a Harvard graduate?)…love. If I had to make a soundtrack that defined me, there would totally be a good dose of Weezer on it. I can go through all of their albums and pick out songs from each that were playing during many significant times in my life, both good and bad. To me, they are like my preferred “comfort food” of music. Their new single is odd, but I love it. it’s like a perfect mix of old and new Weezer.
What music are you listening to this week? Any bands that you’ve followed throughout your whole life?
