Weezer The White Album.jpg

"Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori" is the seventh track from The White Album.

Released in 2016, the song's provenance can be traced back more than two decades. The verse lyrics and melody originate in a demo written by Rivers Cuomo in 2002 (Catalog O' Riffs entry #405, "Don't Give Me Love"). In 2015, Cuomo lifted the chord progression from the song "Walk Away Renée" by The Left Banke, titling an early version of the demo "Awaken Early" (a partial anagram of "Walk Away Renée). The final song's title came from an overheard conversation at a party at Rivers' daughter's school. One mother said that their husband called her "School-Year Elaine" during the year and "Summer Elaine" after the school year had ended, and another mother commented that her husband had two names for her as well, one of them being "Drunk Dori". Cuomo has stated that "Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori" is his favorite song from The White Album.
