Beautiful Day

Album: "Happy" in Galoshes (2008)
  • This is a remake of a Stone Temple Pilots outtake called "Learning to Drive."
  • This number featured on the soundtrack for the 2006 William Friedkin movie Bug. Weiland told Netscape Celebrity: "The song we wrote is almost perfect for the film because, on one end, it's beautiful and almost pristine - and on the other side of things, it's really twisted and it's like you're on a psychotic roller coaster ride in slow motion."
  • "Happy" in Galoshes chronicles Weiland's relationship with his wife Mary Forsberg, whom he married in 2000 and separated from eight years later. He told Associated Press: "It's a concept album of the love lost between she and I. It chronicles our relationship from the moment that we got married and really, every time there was a separation is when I would come in here and live here basically and just purge."
