    I know it’s not quite Christmassy, yet hey it’s a holiday song and I think appropriate.

    And our world is almost beautiful again

    What a day for a new day, new day

  10. Beverly Hills by Weezer

    In this song Weezer finally focuses on making cogent and insightful commentary on the state of modern society. They exhume the all too common social rigidity found in modern day society; their construct of society is almost dystopian in its situating of the listener on the outside looking in on the luxury in which elites find themselves as a matter of course from birth to death. When their singer plaintively wails “Beverly Hills that is where I want to be” the pathos is palpable, the heart wrenching yearning for a better condition comes through.

    In this song, Weezer becomes something more than just a middle aged rock band, they become an avatar for all who are trapped by social order built on maintaining iniquity. His lament “that it is something you are born into” touches the travails and condition in which the vast majority of humanity finds themselves: Poverty, with little hope for a future beyond the what they were born into.

    Yeah. Right.
