SZNZ: Winter track listing
"Sheraton Commander"
"Dark Enough to See the Stars"

"Sheraton Commander" is the fourth track on SZNZ: Winter.



Rivers Cuomo confirmed in February of 2022 that "Sheraton Commander" would feature an interpolation of a piece of classical music.[1] The piece in question is "Adagio in G minor" by the Italian Baroque-era composer Tomaso Albinoni. The song references different places in Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Harvard University, where Cuomo attended, including the Sheraton Commander hotel and the Washington Elm [2].

Weezer (under the Goat Punishment moniker) performed SZNZ: Winter in its entirety (including "Sheraton Commander") at a secret show in West Hollywood on September 19, 2022, months ahead of the EP's release.

A solo Cuomo demo of "Sheraton Commander" from 2021 leaked online on December 25, 2022.

about this table




Oh, Sheraton Commander
Oh, how I long to be there
Slow waltzing over the bridge
Lost in this beautiful hymn
No, I’m not one of the kids
Where you are
George Washington, he took command
At the foot of this tree
I took my pill, I caught a chill
I remember these streets
But it all doesn’t mean
What it used to to me
