Leave it to Weezer

Already, I sing this song, at least once a day, and have been doing so, precisely, for the past 15 years – apparently Weezer recorded this song five years ago, but it showed up today on the Weezer message boards.

Rivers tells American Songwriter, that recording this song was no joke:

“No. I loved that song. It was actually Rick Rubin’s suggestion. We both loved that song and we both thought it would be great for Weezer, and for my voice, and it’d be great to do like a rock version of it with more of an alternative aesthetic. And you know, just the way I would sing it versus in the way Toni Braxton would sing it. And I love the way it came out, and I think probably the rest of the band really does not like it, and that’s probably why it didn’t make our fifth record, in 2005 when we were recording it.”
