"Island in the Sun" is a song by the American rock band Weezer. It is the second single from the band's 2001 self-titled album Weezer. "Island in the Sun" was not originally planned to be on the album, but producer Ric Ocasek fought for its inclusion. It was a successful radio single and perhaps the band's biggest hit ever outside of the United States, reaching No. 31 in the UK and No. 17 in France.
There are two different videos for "Island in the Sun". Version 1 "Mexican wedding" was directed by Marcos Siega. It shows Weezer playing the song at a Mexican couple's wedding reception and features all four band members. The groom in the video is played by actor/singer Tony Gracia.
Version 2 "Animals" was directed by Spike Jonze. It features Weezer playing with various wild animals on a supposedly remote hill (though it was actually filmed a short distance outside of Los Angeles, thought to be in the hills near Simi Valley). Only Brian Bell, Rivers Cuomo, and Pat Wilson appear in this video, as bassist Mikey Welsh had left the band shortly before shooting.
Jonze's version was given much wider play on MTV, and as a result it became the much better-known version. However, Siega's version is the one available for download on iTunes.File Hashes
