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. Go on Rol…..you’re one of the best out there….in your own good time…..please?????!!!

  3. 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.
