My Top 1000 Songs #326: El Scorcho

[I've been writing up my Top 1000 songs on a daily basis--you can see them all in descending order by hitting the All My Favorite Songs tag.]

Sure, Weezer appear to be kinda divisive, and I'm presumably half a generation too old to admit liking them. And "El Scorcho," off 1996 sophomore LP Pinkerton, arguably falls somewhere between juvenile and outright cringe.

But what can I say? I've always loved the damn thing. If you're the sort of person who gets to the final chorus, and you're still not singing along with "I think I'd be good for you, and you'd be good for me," I'm not sure I even know who you are any more. How could you have gone so far astray?



  1. Unrequited love yearning, with a catchy chorus!
