Description
Every once in a while I like to do a 'tempie theme song' type tune, where I dig up some autobiography and set it to music that I think is a cartoon rendition of the tempie sound. While I was working on this collection of songs Weezer released their White Album and I was so taken by it, the way that it was this great fun tribute to California and pop metal/punk but with enough irony so that if called on the sincerity they could just blow it off, just really brilliant, and I thought that punk does have this sincere vein and it seems that all of the old punk bands shouted so loud so that nobody noticed that they had their hearts out there...So musically there's a bunch of Weezer here, but filtered through what I think of as the tempie sound.

Weezer meets Vic Holman?
Vocals remind me a bit of Vic... I remember Weezer as one of those bands my sons brought home when they were in High School. I remember being pleasantly surprised then. Once again, I find myself pleasantly surprised. Great tribute!

Be well friend!

Glowing Days
Nice job at capturing the glow of days gone by. It has the feel-good aura of carefree youth in summer. It is a pleasure to hear.

My only complaint is the vocals seem buried in the soundtrack. If you hadn't posted the lyrics I would have been lost in the maze.

I was thinking Husker Du, but Weezer - Yeah, I can see that now. I enjoyed it. Good stuff.

60s Beach Boys make it to 2017!
Grungy but with great harmonies going on. Would have liked a little more volume on the vocals, but not really an issue.
Top post!
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

I had to google super bee, but have now decided my dream car is a lime green one with a black stripe on the trunk

I love this
the whiz bang production is super groovy with a little nod to the Beach Boys (I hear a bike horn) - and yeah, a real sing-along vibe. Now - off to listen to Weezer's White Album.
