10. "The World Has Turned and Left Me Here"
Rivers Cuomo and Weezer drummer Pat Wilson wrote "The World Has Turned and Left Me Here" about a year before they even started the band. The title pretty much sums up the theme of the song: It's about a super depressed guy struggling with the aftermath of a breakup. It follows "No One Else" on The Blue Album and Cuomo says that is no coincidence. "'No One Else' is about the jealous obsessive asshole in me freaking out on my girlfriend," he said. "'The World Has Turned and Left Me Here' is the same asshole wondering why she's gone." It's impossible to guess just how many teenagers in the 1990s blasted this song after a tough day and thought "this sums up my life perfectly," but it's probably in the millions. The song sat dormant for years and years until the group finally resurrected it on the Memories tour where they played their first two albums in sequence. It never failed to make nostalgic 1990s kids squeal with delight.
