In the early 1990s Jonas Brothers Songs started out as a small, exclusive, African based record label in the UK. The founder and creator of the label was Declan Shalvey, who mixed with such well known figures as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Paul Weller and John Entwistle. The original line up of the label included such notable acts as Don Ed Hiott, Peter Grant and Michael Caine. It wasn’t long before the group had signed with Virgin and released an album called After Life. Their second album, Come As You Are, was equally successful and made them even more popular in the UK music industry.
With the success of After Life, the band were soon signed to Virgin and they began to tour the world. Their popularity soon moved them into the offices of Interscope Records, where their popularity increased even further. They were soon to receive a very high compliment from their manager Brian May, when he decided to sign the band to his firm. This led to the formation of the very successful band Weezer. Their amazing songs have made Weezer one of the biggest selling bands of all time.
One of the biggest themes in Weezer’s music is their love of Americana music. Jonasson Brothers Songs’ greatest hits “Yukon Woman” and “Canticle”, have been parodied countless times by artists ranging from Owl City to Weezer themselves. Their love of Americana and country music has made Jonasson Brothers Songs one of the most popular groups around. A great example of this is their song “Everything in its Right Place”.
“Everything in Its Right Place” is a love song about a relationship that goes bad, but ends up being the best thing that could ever happen in the relationship. The first verse, “Canticle” describes how the relationship starts out well but goes down the drain because of insecurities. As the lyrics progress it becomes clearer how this feeling becomes self-perpetuating. However, the optimism in the lyrics is enough to make things go back to normal in the relationship. Throughout the song, the Brothers emphasize that everything is still good in the relationship.
Another great track from Weezer’s catalog is “Reelin’ in the Years”. This is a song about getting older and feeling old. While it isn’t exactly a ballad, the lyrics describe the feelings of someone getting into their early twenties. Themes in this song also reflect life in general as people get married and have children. The songwriting has a lightness and cheerfulness about it, which makes it a favorite for Weezer fans of all ages.
One of the last songs written by the guys is “Weezer My Brain”. It describes how the band members have formed an alliance to try to figure out how to beat the drug problem plaguing the United States. Although drug use is a problem in the country, the Brothers have managed to make something positive out of it. By singing about how they are trying to stay sober, the band offers support for one another while they face the obstacles they face together.
The last two songs, “I’m Back in Black” and “Ieezee” were written specifically for Rivers. Both are great songs about how people deal with the loss of a friend or a relative. While it may not seem like they fit into Weezer’s music, they are meaningful and needed by many. In the second song Rivers sings about hanging on to a dream that he had once shared with a girl. The dream encouraged him to overcome his problems, and get his life back on track. For this reason, the song feels like a elegy for someone who has passed away.
When you listen to a great collection of Weezer songs, it doesn’t matter which ones are sung by Rivers or by any other member of the band. What matters is the quality of these songs and the inspiration they inspire. Weezer has created an influential body of work that has influenced many people through their music. The influence reaches beyond the United States, as people from all over the world have found solace in Weezer’s songs. Anyone who wants to get in touch with pop culture, independent music, or Weezer should definitely take a look at these great songs.
