Appearances

Overview

"Love Is the Answer" was written and recorded by Rivers Cuomo during the Make Believe sessions but was not included on the album, making it one of the so-called "fallen soldiers". In 2009, Cuomo gave several of his demos to Sugar Ray for possible inclusion on their new album. They chose and recorded "Love Is the Answer" and it was eventually released on their album "Music for Cougars". This version is similar to the 2005 version of the song.

An entirely new version of the song was eventually released on Weezer's album Raditude in 2009. The arrangement has been radically altered, including the use of Hindi vocals and instrumentation, a more subdued sound overall, as well as being in a different key.

The first Hindi verse is loosely translated as "There will come a day when love will reign. Where there is love, life flourishes."

Band Commentary

Rivers: That one was really cool 'cause we got Amrita Sen, who's an Indian woman, classical singer, to come down and she did this beautiful vocal in Hindi. And one of our friends was playing Sitar. It is a very new sound for Weezer. [1]

Lyrics

There will come a day
When we transcend our pain
Until that day
Take it easy on yourself

Love is the answer
Makes no difference what you have heard
Love is the answer
You have got to trust in the word

वहाँ एक दिन आएगा जब प्रेम राज करेगी. जहां प्रेम, जीवन पनपी है.
(There will come a day when love will reign. Where there is love, life flourishes)

There will come a day
When we can finally rest
Until that day
Take it easy on yourself

Brothers and sisters
I know you try so hard sometimes
You're gonna find your happiness inside
