Cool love song: The Prettiest Girl in the Whole Wide World by Weezer


Our rock love song for the week is The Prettiest Girl In The Whole Wide World by Weezer — that’s right, we have back-to-back Weezer tunes for this month since I’m quite a fan (no duh).

The song appears as a bonus track in their latest studio album Raditude but it was in fact originally released by frontman Rivers Cuomo in demo form on his solo compilation album Alone 2- The Home Recordings Of Rivers Cuomo.  It was recorded in 1997 during the band’s hiatus and was initially a contender for 2001’s Green Album.

Anyway, I thought it would make a great rock wedding song because of the sweet aww-inducing lyrics (see below) enveloped in that classic Weezer Blue Album era power pop sound.

I’ve got the prettiest girl in the whole wide world
And nobody can take her from me.
And in the evening when she goes out walking alone
I waited all patiently

I’ve never been so happy
I’ve never been so sure

I’ve got the prettiest girl in the world
And I’m in love with her.

  1. What a great song to share. I never got into Weezer. I feel like I missed the boat on it (I was into Backstreet Boys right around then). Thanks for sharing!

  2. So glad you like it Lizzie! I was intro BSB back in the day too LOL. I only discovered Weezer in the late 90s and have loved them ever since! 😉

  3. Aw, I’m a big Weezer fan! I’m trying to download the Vitamin String Quartet tribute to Weezer so I can sneak in some =w= songs during our reception. I really wanted an orchestra version of Only in Dreams but it’s not available on the album 🙁

  4. Ooh, a fellow =w= fan, welcome to Poptastic Bride, Mel! The Blue album is still my fave (for sentimental reasons too) and Only in Dreams is a great song for a wedding, come to think of it. Sad to hear that it’s not on the VSQ album though… 🙁 maybe you can hire a string quartet to learn the song?

  5. That would be nice. I hope that’s not too expensive though…I just hope there are string quartets in Manila that are willing to learn the song! 🙂

    By the way, I love your site and the sneaker designs in your store 🙂

  6. Hi again Mel! Thanks for the kind words about my site and the sneakers, so glad you like them 🙂 I’m sure there are musicians who’ll be willing to play it if you ask them. (Try asking Bernie Pasamba, his trio played at ours.) 🙂
