They Should Have Done 'Atlantic Princess'

Okay, this is strange. American rock group WEEZER has apparently covered a Boa song. The ballad MERI KURI (aka, MERRI CHRI) is supposed to appear on the Japanese version of Weezer's newest record, THE RED ALBUM.

When I went to Amazon.co.jp, I could not find the song listed on any of the versions of THE RED ALBUM, however I found a download of Meri Kuri here. (Video of Boa's Korean version is here. Japanese version is here).

The mind boggles.

Well, it is not like that group, LMFAO, has a record deal. They just made a couple of mixed tapes. I would wait until the group puts out a "real" CD or creates a real website before getting upset about any rip offs.
