Rivers didn't write the song, do you think he wrote the solo?
There's more to Irony than that. From the dictionary.com entry:
5. an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected.
6. the incongruity of this
What I meant is that it's ironic that on an album being hailed (around here, anyway), as a return to form and Weezer's best in years, the song many people believe to be the best on the album was not written by the band's principal songwriter or anyone else in the group.
G Foo Chombey said:No, I believe irony is more like saying something while meaning the opposite. Something like someone saying "Oh that music is sure great.." while referring to a genre they hate. That's all I'm sayin'.
BackToSchool said:Ever hear of "situational irony"? Or are you just pretending to be clueless because you perceive what I said as an insult to the band or something?
G Foo Chombey said:I don't see how that's ironic.
BackToSchool said:It's a cool solo, but I don't think it even comes close to any of the good solos on Pinkerton, or Blue for that matter. It feels like it's just "there" rather than being an integral part of the song, in my opinion.
It's ironic that this is probably a better song than anything on else on the album, and Rivers didn't write it.
Who wrote this song? I know the lead singer of the Aquabats started Yo Gabba Gabba, but does he write all the songs too? I could honestly see Rivers writing this though,
