A SUMMER SONG…..RELEASED IN THE MONTH OF OCTOBER

Yup. The song deals with being on holiday, soaking up the rays of the sun and being in love. Tailor-made for radio in July and August but released by the record company on 22 October 2001 and limped into the UK singles charts at #31 in chilly November.

mp3 : Weezer – Island In The Sun

I just don’t get how the music industry works.

Here’s the various b-sides from the 7″ and 2 x CD singles:-

mp3 : Weezer – Always
mp3 : Weezer – Oh, Lisa
mp3 : Weezer – Sugar Booger
mp3 : Weezer – Brightening Day

I was surprised, in doing a wee bit research for this post, to lean that Weezer have released as many as 13 studio albums, 6 EPS and 28 singles going back to 1994 right through to earlier this year. They’re not a band I have too much of in the collection…..surely they are ripe for an ICA. Any fans out there willing to have a go?

  1. Normally I’d put my hand up for this as I’m a big Weezer fan. Taking a bit of a sabbatical from blogging at the moment though. Maybe one day, if nobody else offers.

  2. Weezer had a great debut album followed by a stupendous sophomore album. Everything they did afterwards rehashed the first two albums. They released quite a few catchy singles over their career but nothing that approaches the Blue Album and Pinkerton. A survey ICA could be culled from those singles but all you really need they recorded in the id-90’s. Great live band, by the way.
