Cool Tune: Weezer “Undone” (the sweater song)

It’s no secret…I’m a Weezer fan.

And this is a perfect song for those of you (i.e., me) who at times (once a week, at least) might feel like you’re just barely keeping it together. Like your very existence is as tenuous as one of those loose threads at the hem of your t-shirt, and if pulled, you may just end up lying on the floor…naked.

It seems, however, that others may have a different take on this song. On this forum, I read that it was about premature ejaculation…not an affliction I’m personally familiar with, at least, not like I’m familiar with full-on anxiety attacks. And to be honest, I’m not sure which would be worse.

But after looking at this picture closer…that guy IS wearing a sweater vest (and looks a bit shifty-eyed). Hmmm…

    I LOVE that song! And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Weezer! Glad to know that That Cool Broad loves them too! : )

    Premature ejaculation? Really? I never got that. I’ll have to ask hubby if that is his take of the song. I just thought it was a jaunty little ditty about broken relationships. Hmmm.

    I love Weezer, and it totally wouldn’t surprise me if it were really about premature ejaculation. Rivers is a weird little guy.
