Island in the Sun (3:19)

Cover of The Green Album

From The Green Album and 35 other releases

“Island in the Sun” is a 2001 single by Weezer. It is the second single from the band’s album, Weezer (The Green Album). “Island in the Sun” wasn’t originally planned to be on the album, yet producer Ric Ocasek fought for the song and it ended up on the final product. It was a successful radio single and perhaps the band’s biggest hit ever outside of the United States.

In late 2001, the band reworked the song’s solo for their live show. In 2005, Rivers Cuomo would often open the band’s encore by playing “Island in the Sun” alone on an acoustic guitar in the back of the venue they were playing. On some nights, he would crowd surf back up the stage.
