"A Glorious Moment" is the twenty-sixth and final track from Alone III: The Pinkerton Years 1994-1997.

Overview

"A Glorious Moment" is a spoken word recording from April 15, 1995, the day after Rivers' leg surgery to correct a congenital leg-length discrepancy, which is largely documented in The Pinkerton Diaries and helped influence some of the content from Pinkerton. A track listed as "1995-04-15 RC After Operation" in The 4 and 5 star demos of Rivers Cuomo likely refers to this recording.

Transcription

"It's 5:30 on... the 15th... the day after my operation. Um... I'm, eating saltines, drinking juice. I actually peed... for the first time... on my own. It was... a glorious moment. It was truly glorious. Now I'm going to try to... set up some music to listen to. Goodbye."

Reception

Though its review laments that space is occupied on Alone III for this song instead of an additional proper demo, Weezer Songblog Teenage Victory Songs celebrates the documentarian purpose served by the song.
