Perfect 10 Track Blue/Pink ~*pReDoMiNaNtLy*~ B-Side Mix

Have friends interested in Weezer? They enjoy Blue and Pinkerton but you know giving them any of the other full albums will be useless and embarrassing/disappoint them? Or simply looking for a concise counterpart to the first two records? 

I've, as I'm sure many of you have—it's probably been posted about five times already, but I don't care, mine is better and deserves its own thread (just kidding, I'm not an a******, please don't delete my thread)—put together a nice little b-side playlist. It's a comprehensive ten-track playlist of b-sides and demos from the Blue and Pinkerton eras and I think it complements the sound of the official releases quite nicely. So, if you're in the position to make a new Weezer mix for one of your friends, or are struggling to make a playlist for yourself, consider the following:

1. Mykel And Carli (Blue DE)

2. Blast Off! (Alone)

3. You Gave Your Love To Me Softly (Pinkerton DE)

4. You Won't Get With Me Tonight (Pinkerton DE)

5. Susanne (Blue DE)

6. Jamie (Blue DE)

7. Devotion (Pinkerton DE)

8. Waiting On You (Pinkerton DE)

9. Tragic Girl (Pinkerton DE)

10. Long Time Sunshine (Pinkerton DE)

I omitted several classics, such as "I Just Threw Out The Love Of My Dreams" (I felt the female vocals interrupted the tone of this for-new-Weezer-fans mix*), "Lullaby For Wayne," "Prettiest Girl In The Whole Wide World," "Getting Up And Leaving," and etcetera for purposes of concision and comprehension—I couldn't include them all with the ten-track limitation and some songs just flowed together better than others. But hey, there's always room for a Volume 2!

Anyways, I hope this serves a good use for some of you out there! Your feedback is welcome.

*Please don't misinterpret this. I love this song, and have no sexist sentiments regarding female vocals. As this was constructed for intrigued Weezer semi-fans, I wanted to keep the classic Rivers sound consistent throughout.

well, let me rephrase, 

my title is supposed to be a bold title mocking all the opinionated, dumb, and over-generalized topics out there. for example, it has the word "perfect" in it.

that makes perfect sense.

Nice list

Well, you don't have to go all alternating-caps-semi-rage on our collective a****. Someone might think you're having a stroke.

Just call it "B-Side/Demo Mix". It's concise, and accurate!

Meh. I'll just give them runners' SFTBH tracklist. Now that's perfect.

Some great songs on there!

Thoughts on shows billed as "b-sides & Pinkerton" nights on the cruise including "Troublemaker," "We Are All on Drugs," "No One Else," "Can't Stop Partyin'," "Keep Fishin," "Tragic Girl," "Memories," "Trippin' Down The Freeway," "Los Angeles," "Longtime Sunshine," "Don't Let Go," and "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived" during the "b-sides" setlists?

"yo rivdawg, actually wait, we can't say b-sides, kittens bieber will be misled"

Accept that the term has become flexible and can abridge something like "b-sides and demos," let alone "b-sides, demos, singles, covers, and other random album tracks," in Weezer's case.

I refuse to accept misuse of terminology. I will give weezer a talking to later

pretty sure the set was billed as b-sides and rarities, not just b-sides. good try, though.
