That would be cool as all hell, but I already made my travel arrangements so I'll be arriving in Chi-town on the 5th

It's okay.

I was really sick of hearing the name "Beverly Hills" by the end of the song. It's the only Weezer song I can recall offhand that has a real solo (instead of just pulling a "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and playing the main melody more enthusiastically).

LOL... sounds like a Weezer rap... LOL.

Its catchy... Rivers and co. actually solo a lot, especially with their last album... I think the Green album was really the only album that did the whole playing the melody.

the more I listen to this song the sadder I get.

oh my god, could you get any more uninspired? It's like they just gave up on putting effort into their songs.
not only is the music boring complete with a horrible wah guitar solo, but the lyrics make me feel weak and sick.

Where I come from isn't all that great
My automobile is a piece of crap
My fashion sense is a little whack
And my friends are just as screwy as me

I didn't go to boarding schools
Preppie girls never looked at me
Why should they?
I ain't nobody
Got nothing in my pocket

Beverly Hills
That's where I want to be
Livin' in Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills
Rolling like a celebrity
Livin' in Beverly Hills

Look at all those movie stars
They're all so beautiful and clean
When the housemaids scrub the floors
They get the spaces in between

I wanna live a life like that
I wanna be just like a king
Take my picture by the pool
'cause I'm the next big thing


and it goes on and on...Lord, it's so bad. yeah yeah...trying to be ironic or something..but any stupid 3 year old worth his weight in diapers can write this.
horrible horrible horrible
I don't understand how any of you like it

I don't love the song, but it doesn't piss me off either. Not all of the music I listen to has to have big meanings or poetic lyrics (although I prefer most of it that does). Sometimes we need something fun and brainless.

yeah, I know...and to each their own...
but there's a difference between "fun and brainless" and just plain brainless

But its fun.... the wah solo is fun... the corny riff is fun. So its fun and brainless. But maybe. Just, maybe... this song is deeper than we know.

Cuz Rivers likes them Asian girls =>

That's why I hate the Killers.

Beverly Hills isn't up to the usual Weezer standard, but there's something about the song that I get, maybe moreso than most people.

I'm thinking this is their Vertigo moment, and the rest of the album is going to be better.
