10 in 2010: Weezer

This seems to be a pretty big year for Weezer, first there was the release of their latest album Hurley and then the long-awaited deluxe re-issue of Pinkerton and the b-side compilation Death to False Metal. After reviewing Hurley yesterday, I got the idea to do a 10 in 2010 for the band. Here are what I think are Weezer’s 10 best songs, and this one is actually (somewhat) in order. The first two songs on the list are certainly my two favorites of the band.

1. “The World Has Turned and Left Me Here” (from Weezer (Blue Album) [Deluxe] Disc 1)
2. “El Scorcho” (from Pinkerton)
3. “Surf Wax America” (from Weezer (Blue Album) [Deluxe] Disc 1)
4. “Jamie” (from Weezer (Blue Album) [Deluxe] Disc 2)
5. “Possibilities” (from Maladroit)
6. “Keep Fishin’” (from Maladroit)
7. “Across the Sea” (from Pinkerton)
8. “Perfect Situation” (from Make Believe)
9. “Don’t Let Go” (from Weezer (Green Album))
10. “My Name is Jonas” (from Weezer (Blue Album) [Deluxe] Disc 1)

Honorable Mentions –
“(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You Too” (from Raditude)
“Undone—The Sweater Song” (from Weezer (Blue Album) [Deluxe] Disc 1)
“Ruling Me” (from Hurley)
“Photograph” (from Weezer (Green Album))
“Dope Nose” (from Maladroit)
“In the Garage” (from Weezer (Blue Album) [Deluxe] Disc 1)
“Say It Ain’t So” (from Weezer (Blue Album) [Deluxe] Disc 1)
“My Best Friend” (from Make Believe)
“Susanne” (from Weezer (Blue Album) [Deluxe] Disc 2)
