A compilation album is bound to come out eventually, so here are my suggestions:

WEEZER: THE SINGLES 1994-2009*
*all songs as single versions. Yes it fits into 1 CD.
1. Undone – The Sweater Song
2. Buddy Holly
3. Say It Ain’t So
4. El Scorcho
5. The Good Life
6. Pink Triangle
7. Hash Pipe
8. Island in the Sun
9. Photograph
10. Dope Nose
11. Keep Fishin’
12. Beverly Hills
13. We Are All on Drugs
14. Perfect Situation
15. This Is Such A Pity
16. Pork and Beans
17. Troublemaker
18. The Greatest Man That Ever Lived
19. (If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To
20. I’m Your Daddy
They can release this whenever, maybe end of next year.

THE ESSENTIAL WEEZER (2 DISCS)
Disc 1 (Blue / Pinkerton):
1. My Name Is Jonas
2. No One Else
3. The World Has Turned and Left Me Here
4. Buddy Holly
5. Undone - The Sweater Song
6. Surf Wax America
7. Say It Ain't So
8. In the Garage
9. Holiday
10. Only in Dreams
11. Tired of Sex
12. Getchoo
13. No Other One
14. Why Bother?
15. Across the Sea
16. The Good Life
17. El Scorcho
18. Pink Triangle
19. Falling for You
20. Butterfly
Disc 2 (generally the rule is 2 singles and a bonus pick from each album):
1. Mykel & Carli
2. Susanne
3. Island in the Sun
4. Hash Pipe
5. Simple Pages
6. Dope Nose
7. Keep Fishin’
8. Burndt Jamb
9. Beverly Hills
10. Perfect Situation
11. The Other Way
12. The Greatest Man That Ever Lived
13. Pork and Beans
14. Pig
15. (If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To
16. The Girl Got Hot
17. Hang On
18. (1st Single from next album)
19. (2nd Single from next album)
20. (Bonus pick from next album)

I’m thinking they should release this after their next studio album, and then all the songs that gather up in the next 20ish years of Weezer can be in The Essential Weezer Part 2 or something like that.
An alternative for Disc 1 is to remove a few of the arguably weaker songs and put Mykel & Carli and Susanne on the first disc, meaning room for another Raditude single + a Hurley single and bonus pick.

Just seems pointless to me.

i sorta agree, but why Slave? why not something like Space Rock or Slob? And why no Summer Songs 2k? and King instead of Spider.

And to the above hating, the point is speculation on something that probably won't exist and getting the opinions of fellow weezer fans

A compilation album is bound to come out eventually, so this is just my suggestion.

Spider isn't on there, Pig is.

I like Space Rock and Slob as well, although many others don't.

I changed it to Burndt Jamb. That's instantly likeable.

should there be more from Hurley?

i think everyone is over thinking this issue......way to much.  If a greatest hits disc comes up, it's going to be for A1-A7, Hurley will not be on there, as it is on a new label.

 

Just take their biggest hits and put them together in chronological order.  IMO, all my least favorite weezer songs on 1 disc, yay! (not to say any of these songs are bad, I'd prefer a =w= single over any other band in the world, anyday).

Well said.
