Because we love ‘em all. Here’s your 90’s Video of the Day:
The Rentals - Friends of P
“Aren’t those the guys from Weezer?” Yes. Yes it’s the guys from Weezer. (Matt Sharp and Brian Wilson to be official, though Rivers helped with a chunk of it too). Matt Sharp was still Weezer’s bassist when this song came out and it was an experience he had while working on The Blue Album that inspired the lyrics.
Ric Ocasek of The Cars, was the legendary producer behind The Blue Album and at the time was married to model and actress Paulina Porizkova. Whether she really meant it or was joking, Paulina complained that no one had ever written a song about her, so Matt decided he’d be the first. So the “P” in the song stands for Paulina.
Let that synthesizer hit ya right between the eyes and enjoy!
