Beverly Hills      "Exactly what you expect." penguinarmygen
If you know this song (and if you listen to the radio at all, you know this song), you know that it's not going to be anything resembling a challenge. So in that spirit, it's tiered right where it should be. The only parts that may screw up a FC is when you get to the chorus and actually sing "Beverly Hills." The note tapers off in pitch, and it's easy to not start dropping your pitch too early or too late. On shorter note sections, that's enough to ruin your FC. Otherwise, most vocalists are going to be able to FC it on a sight read. You'll get this song because you know it and because everyone will jump on it at parties, but don't expect a challenge here. It has little replay value on its own merits.

(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To      "A surprisingly fun song to sing." penguinarmygen
For starters, this song is definitely overtiered as a tier 3. Aside from that though, I was surprised at how much fun this song was to run through. It's catchy as hell, and it's one of those songs that just feels natural coming out. It's a faster paced song, so be sure to pace your breathing well. The only parts of the song that may throw you off is when the vocal notes get up towards the top of the scrolling bar. Rivers Cuomo goes falsetto here, which means that most male vocalists are going to have to do the same (I sing baritone, and I had to go up an octave to hit it).

The song is higher than what you generally expect from Weezer, so keep that in mind going into it. The lyrics are hokey, as you would also expect from Weezer. But the song is definitely a good time on vocals, and I recommend it. Most vocalists won't be disappointed.

Ocean Avenue      "Solid vocals song." penguinarmygen
If you remember this song, it's probably going to be overtiered at a tier 3. If you don't, it's definitely a challenging song. The choruses are significantly higher pitched than the verses are, and some with deeper voices may need to switch to falsetto to be able to hit the choruses. The bridge is probably the only part that's really challenging on this song if you know it walking in to it, but only because the song doesn't give you much of a chance to catch a breath there. Also, note that going from the bridge to the last chorus, you have one very small window to activate overdrive. After that, you don't have another chance until after the song.

It's definitely a fun song. Not challenging, but should be good at parties, especially if people remember it when it was popular.
