Weezer - Island In The Sun



This was the second single from the album, following up "Hash Pipe," but it almost didn't make the album; producer Ric Ocasek fought for it and the song ended up being a radio hit.


Weezer started recording this on January 1, 2001 at Cello Studios in Los Angeles, which used to be a part of Western Studios, where Frank Sinatra, The Mamas And The Papas and The Beach Boys all recorded. Sometime in April 2001, someone stole a copy of the master tapes and leaked the album on the Internet in unfinished form.


Two different videos were made for this song. One shows the band playing at a Mexican wedding, and the other, more popular version shows the band cavorting with different wild animals. This version was directed by Spike Jonze.



Lyrics


Hip hip


Hip hip


Hip hip


Hip hip



When you're on a holiday


You can't find the words to say


All the things that come to you


And I wanna feel it too



On an island in the sun


We'll be playing and having fun


And it makes me feel so fine


I can't control my brain



Hip hip


Hip hip



When you're on a golden sea


You don't need no memory


Just a place to call your own


As we drift into the zone



On an island in the sun


We'll be playing and having fun


And it makes me feel so fine


I can't control my brain



We'll run away together


We'll spend some time forever


We'll never feel bad anymore



Hip hip


Hip hip


Hip hip



On an island in the sun


We'll be playing and having fun


And it makes me feel so fine


I can't control my brain



We'll run away together


We'll spend some time forever


We'll never feel bad anymore



Hip hip


Hip hip (We'll never feel bad anymore)


Hip hip (No, no)


Hip hip


Hip hip (We'll never feel bad anymore)


Hip hip (No, no)


Hip hip (No, no)


Hip hip
