2011/02/09 'Like a Good Neighbor' New Recording and Video! | NOW free mp3!


*** UPDATE ***

Hey folks – thanks to your interest and requests, there is now a FREE mp3 available of Weezer’s new cover of Barry Manilow’s “Like A Good Neighbor”, on the State Farm Nation facebook page. Check it out!

 

When we were setting up The Memories Tour, the good people at State Farm asked the band, “Would you sing our jingle for us?” Weezer then asked if the jingle was from a whole song, and if anyone had recorded it lately.  So State Farm went back to their headquarters to find out the answers.  What they came back with was that “all we could find was the lyrics and sheet music, we are not sure anyone has ever recorded the whole song.”  It turns out Barry Manilow wrote the song, back when he was just starting out and wrote songs for commercials to pay his bills. Rivers looked over the sheet music and said “this is a great song; we should record the whole thing.”  So the band went into the studio and had a lot of fun rocking out with Mr. Manilow's tune, hoping he would be proud of the results. This video was shot on a day in early December while Weezer recorded the song.

The video can be watched right now on State Farm Nation Facebook page. Check it out!

I love it!  This really rocks.

You should check out the State Farm Nation page where people are commenting on the video.  People were calling them sell-outs, and pandering to corporate America.  State Farm Nation ended up deleting most of the critical comments.   Guess they were from just "poser" fans...

 

Anyhow, love the song, love the video.  Thanks!!
