Weezer - Heart Songs

I’m confident that Rivers was completely genuine in writing “Heart Songs”, what is probably the cheesiest song Weezer’s made in a long time. On the surface you’ll probably think it’s cheap writing; name drop a few of your influences—John Lennon, Quiet Riot, Nirvana—and you have a nice but forgettable tribute to your favorite artists. But I’m inclined to believe that Rivers had no intentions of irony when writing this; I think he wanted to tell a heartwarming story with a nice melody, and that’s exactly what he did. And I don’t mind it one bit.
