#38 – Weezer – “Island in the Sun” – (2001)

This is my favorite Weezer song – which might sound ridiculous to hard-core Weezer fans, but whatever, I don’t care. This wasn’t even supposed to be on the album. The producer (who happened to be Ric Ocasek from The Cars) fought for it and it turned into a radio-friendly single and Weezer’s biggest hit to date outside the U.S. It’s light and fun and… breezy (I guess is the word I’m searching for). And the music video is awesome for those who like “cute” – it’s full of puppies playing with baby chimps and other animals. Anyway, best Weezer song.
