Weezerpedia's featured song is a monthly showcase of a song from one of the many bands we cover. Weezerpedia has thousands of song pages, and our editors work together each month to select one that sheds light on the bands/topics we cover, highlights or "platforms" a band we want to support, etc. We have similar pages for featured articles, featured videos, featured images, and featured quotes. Weezerpedia:Featured list is being put on hiatus for a spell.

"Wanda (You're My Only Love)" is the tenth track on Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo. The song was written and demoed by Cuomo in 1995.

Rivers Cuomo was asked by his manager to compose a song for the film Angus. Wanting badly to do a good job, Cuomo pored over the film's script. He found that he connected with the film's titular character. "I poured my heart into the song," said Cuomo in 2007, "I used details from the characters' lives in the movie, but really the emotions were mine, the incredible love I would feel for the woman, the person, the world that could accept me and love me as I was."

The eponymous "Wanda" refers to a so-named inflatable sex doll, used by Angus in the film to practice slow dancing.

The song was ultimately rejected for being "too literal" of an interpretation of the film. The film's producers wanted a more up-beat rock song in the vein of "Buddy Holly." Weezer ended up submitting "You Gave Your Love to Me Softly" instead. Cuomo performed the song live at shows under the "Homie" moniker in 1997, and shared an MP3 of his demo in the early 2000s. The song was formally released in 2007 as part of the compilation Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo.
