Weezer Cover The Cars’ “You Might Think”
Weezer, who we last heard covering “Paranoid Android” for no apparent reason are serving up another cover song for the soundtrack to Cars 2. The song, appropriately enough, is a Cars cover, specifically “You Might Think” (their ’84 hit with the video you might think starred Paulina Porizkova, but actually starred Susan Gallagher). It’s a pretty faithful take on the Heartbeat City classic (and remember Ric Ocasek produced The Blue Album). The song will play in the scene where Lightning McQueen goes to Japan, and if you don’t know who Lightning McQueen is you don’t know my nephew.
The Cars 2 soundtrack is out 6/14 via Disney. The original Cars have a new album out too, their first in 24 years. It’s called Move Like This and is out now via Hear Music.
