Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Weezer On An “Island In The Sun”

Weezer performed “Island in the Sun” in Germany in 2005. The lyrics describe a holiday involving a couple who will “never feel bad anymore”–a state of endless perfection that “…makes me feel so fine I can’t control my brain.” In this romantic fantasy, the “island in the sun” is ultimately the imagination.

"Island in the Sun" is truly a cross-generational hit enjoyed by a wide audience, but the studio recording is far superior than this live performance. I believe the song was used in the soundtrack to an episode of Smallville - for all the Superman fans (myself included).

Perhaps it was superior–but the music I post every week is live.
