Weezer – You Gave Your Love To Me Softly (1996)

Inconceivable that I didn’t know of this song’s existence until last night, given that Blue Album is still the high water mark in terms of power pop and possibly just rock music overall, and this has all of the elements of said album, from the Ocasek-esque production and haunting melody to the tiny details (short guitar swells, snare-less kick fills). I can’t stop listening, it’s like a Blue Album cut from a parallel universe where Papua New Guinea won World War IV.
