Don't let the barriers you have built to define who you are blind you from appreciating the unfamiliar.

Weezer - El Scorcho

Anamanguchi and Ok Go are just two of the many bands that 90's Weezer helped inspire.

El Scorcho is the only single off of the album Pinkerton, and the follow up to the wildly successful "Buddy Holly" video, but I doubt you have ever seen it.

Their video for "Buddy Holly" turned them from stars into superstars.  It is one of the most well-known music videos.  It was even on the Windows 95 installation CD.

While "Buddy Holly" was a popular song, the music video stole much of the spotlight.  For "El Scorcho," Rivers Cuomo wanted to make a video that didn't distract from the music.  Instead, this video is created to complement the music, primarily with  lights.

I remember not liking it much the first time I saw it, but have a new appreciation for it.  Either way, El Scorcho is one of the best Weezer songs. Share/Bookmark
