Bob Dylan's Beard

Things got weird. I started growing Bob Dylan's Beard.

A bee has got to sting…but you don’t like it, you love it

                                          

After further inspection of the newest Weezer single:

I’m enjoying this edited version of the song.  It could be put on Pinkerton with no problem.  Maybe add a little distortion and screaming at the beginning instead of falsetto, take out the part in the middle that sounds like The Green Album, also the middle part that sounds like Make Believe, and the part that sounds like Elvis, and the part that sounds like Sweet Adeline(My Evaline) and the part that sounds like “You Gave Your Love to me Softly” or “I Just Threw Out the Love of My Dreams” and easy peasy you have a Pinkerton single.  But seriously, this edited version is very radio-friendly, unlike the 6 minute epic.

  • 0:00 – 0:51 Very Pinkerton-esque
  • 0:52 – 1:17 Sounds like the Green Album
  • 1:18 – 1:50 Synthy like parts of Make Believe, but also similar to B-side “Devotion”
  • 1:51 – 2:21 Rivers talking like Elvis – un-Weezer like unless you consider intro to “Undone”
  • 2:22 – 2:54 Reference their barbershop roots (see: Blue Album b-side Sweet Adeline(My Evaline)
  • 2:55 – 3:10 Sounds like old “I Just Threw Out the Love of My Dreams” (Pinkerton b-side)
  • 3:10 – 3:38 Again Pinkerton-esque

Weezer – The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Variation Edit)

Interesting news: according to Karl’s Corner, Weezer are releasing a cover of “The Weight” by The Band as an addition to the UK version of the album.
