Songs that didn't make the albums?

Postby FlightOfTheWeezer » Thu Apr 02, 2009 3:39 am

Is there any way I can get the mp3s of the Season 1 (or maybe even season 2 ) songs that DID NOT make it onto the first album? I'd pay for them if I could. I own the DVDs and both CDs but it's angering me how they don't include all the songs from each season.

Help me out?

Thanks in advance.

Why don't you copy them from the TV show? I know I did.

Or go look online for them lifted from the HBO show. Thats what lots of people did for the first season. I didn't post them on the site for general comsumption as it were. Out of resepct for the guys and knowing they were recording the tracks over for the album as they were not totally happy with the songs in the series and felt they needed more work.

FWIW I do host Pencils In The Wind on the MP3 page. Taken from the HBO series. But that is it. As it didn't make the album I figured I'd host it. However I still think the best version of this is on Folk The World when performed live on stage.

Season 2 tracks have been released and the album comes out soon. Always worth waiting and seeing what they include on that one. Plus Pencils and Albi is being released as a single soon. So you can buy both of those in a couple of weeks.

I don't see any reason to be angry. They could not include all the songs as some of them were not even 'songs' per se and were only in the show for effect as the bands songs when performing live. Same as on the BBC radio series. The song written for Whambi was never intended as a song they would perform live or include on an album.

Personally I don't think all their songs are strong enough to be included on an album. Fair play I reckon if they want to leave certain tracks out or hold them back. I personally think Prince of Parties is a really weak song and don't like it much at all. I don't get why it was on the album and Pencils left off. But there we go. Also not keen on the new version of Leggyblonde that was sung by Murray. I mean its not bad, but I much preferred the old version performed live years ago. I hope they revert back to that one on the tour if they do decide to perform it again. Same with Mutha'ukas, live in 2002 was a riot. Not felt the same about the HBO version, but its still a good track, only very different lyric wise.

I am not keen on linking to filesharing sites and all that, so would prefer no links to such places here thanks. Just in case anyone was wondering ;) They can easily be found via a search in Google as millions have done before.

I downloaded a software that converts youtube videos into mp3 files.. it's called "Free youtube to mp3 converter" ...pretty selfexplanatory. You just have to look for the version you like the best, copy paste the URL, choose the folder you wanna save it in..and voilà! Conchords-on-the-Go!

Yes. I have had luck myself with listentoyoutube.com

I haven't done this yet, but I probably should put the mp3s into Garage Band to boost the volume a little.

Without hijacking this thread I just wanted to say, dandy lyons, that I'm glad I'm not the only one hear who :heart:'s =w=. They're the only band I've seen live (and that was over 7 years ago now). And it was. Amazing. Rivers Cuomo is so lovely.

Yes. I am a huge fan of Weezer. Went to their LA Hootenanny back in June.

Well, I would use Listentoyoutube, but I thought that there would already be MP3s made. And why make MP3s when they're available to download here?

If anyone has a zip or if there's a weerez.com-esq site (for the weezer fans out there) that would be most excellent.
