Am I the only one who thinks that the bonus tracks on Hurley are pretty weak. This is kinda strange to me, since Red and Rad have really good deluxe edition bonus tracks. All My Friends Are Insects is really the only one I listened to more than twice. Viva La Vida barely sounds like Weezer, and I Want To Be Something and Represent are just overall weak tracks, lyrically and musically.
Miss Sweeney, The Spider, Pig, and King were definately worth the extra 3 bucks or so, and TPGITWWW, Get Me Some, Run Over By A Truck, and The Underdogs may be better than half the songs on Raditude
It kinda makes me regret spending the extra money on the Hurley deluxe edition? Kinda
EDIT: I know Viva La Vida is a cover of the Coldplay song. I meant that it didn't have that Weezer feel to it. Before I heard it, I was thinking they'd make the cover a little more original.
That Viva la Vida recording doesn't have anyone else from the band though as far as I know - isn't it just Rivers on vocals, Josh on percussion, and some other session musicians on piano and strings? Certainly not a bad cover though, I quite like it - better than the original, over-produced, Brian Eno-aphied version.
Finally, someone who doesn't think "I want to be something" is some great song. It blows.
i've never liked it either.
all my friends.. - good song but i don't get why people think it's so endearing that it sounds like a kids song, i think that's pretty f******* lame.
viva.. - bare bones basic. its not bad but there's nothing uniquely weezer about it. and i hate coldplay
i want to be.. - don't get why people love it.
represent - is this song just a b-side from the hurley sessions? nothing special.
