“Say It Ain’t So”
People love to listen to those tracks which can reflect or can relate their lives. This track is one among them. The story of “Say It Ain’t So” revolves around the lead vocal, lead guitarist, and the keyboardist, Rivers Cuomo. His family has broken apart where his dad had a severe drinking problem and left him and his mother at the early life itself. He later came from school and found out a bottle of alcohol on the fridge. Scared whether he might lose his new family, then after many years, he found himself trapped in his memories and composed the ever hit “Say It Ain’t So. It is considered as one among the famous trackback in 1994.
Just like the album as mentioned earlier, “El Scorcho” also has a story to tell. Here, Rivers Cuomo and his days at Harvard were considered as very hard. He was going through a medical condition where he had to wear steel braces on his legs. Gradually, the other students, especially women, were not interested in hanging out with him anymore. He started finding these memories and started to merge it with music. He then mixed his loneliness and extreme sadness into music, and then poured into songs on Pinkerton.
Rivers Cuomo gave this label, Hash Pipe. When they came back to the industry after four years of break, the crew went for “Don’t Let Go,” but it was Cuomo who stood for Hash Pipe. The track had some influences from “Theme From Peter Gunn” and “Shot Himself Up”. It attracted many teenagers worldwide. All theses incorporated together paved the way for a universal hit.
“Across the Sea”
After the “The Blue Album,” he joined Harvard at that point of his life. There, the days did not turn as expected. He was sad and lonely. He was dipped in extreme sadness he used to hear to the same track for more than ten times. He got a letter from a fan. The letter was far off from Japan. The letter made a significant impact on him and made him write “Across the Sea”.
