I think had the group thought just a wee bit more about the content & lyrics, they could've done so much more with this. Kinda like "There She Goes" by The La's or "Sixpence None The Richer" - while it consists of merely a few lines repeated over & over again, the musical end of this song is quite a "toe-tapper" - it'll be popular for years to come.

I got this by mistake apparently. I was expecting some tunes from Spanky's little brother. I mean, it's OK but they shouldn't have used a name of someone so contemporary. I get confused quite easily perhaps.

I heard this song on the radio and thought, "This is a fun song by Weezer." So I bought it. So far, every time I hit the play button it plays a fun song by Weezer. I'm hoping it won't defect and play a boring song by Adam Lambert ('cause I didn't buy the warranty), but I haven't run into any problems so far. So I'd have to say I'm very happy with my purchase overall.

Pros:

Cool intro (always important, for me)
Mellow, but spirited
Fun, 3-minute "vacation"

Cons:

The line "we'll be playing and having fun" (a little too easy and expected)
The whole song may very well have been written while waiting for a Jack-in-the-Box order.

Let me first say I am reviewing the song, not the download (I'm sure it's fine). Now to the review. This is one of Weezer's most famous and greatest songs. It is for a reason. This is such a feel good summer song (along with the whole Green Album) you will be happy you spent the money on it. Great work on the instruments and Rivers Cuomo's voice is perfect. If you're looking for one Weezer song, get this one. You won't regret it.

Edited October 14th:
I also want to say R.I.P. to Mikey Welsh, the bassist on the Green Album. He passed away unexpectedly on October 8th.

One of Weezers best songs on Weezers best album. Very catchy and unique.. Further, Mikey wrote a great bassline.
RIP Mikey and enjoy your island in the sun.

I was looking for the perfect song for a summer photo slideshow project. I found this song and it had a nice melody and tune.
