Robert Schwartzman’s California Roll Tour kicks off tonight in Boston. We’re beyond excited for this tour – for starters, Robert has written some of our favorite songs of all time (both solo and as the front man of Rooney) and we haven’t seen him in ages! But the tour itself is something completely new and unexpected – he’s hosting it on a 30-passenger party bus. We literally have no idea what to expect from this show which definitely adds an extra air of excitement! So, in honor of the tour, here are our favorite Rooney songs! (It was nearly impossible to keep this to 5 songs).
The band’s first official single. Bonus points if you caught Robert performing the song in “The Princess Diaries.”
Robert is always ahead of his time – the lyrics of this song are even more relevant today than when it was released in 2003.
3. “I’m Shakin”
Hey man, do you know who sings this song? ROONEY!
4. “I Should’ve Been After You”
This song and video perfectly capture Rooney’s retro sounds.
5. “I Can’t Get Enough”
Warning: watching this video will make you want to go roller skating. (Luckily the revival of all things 90s lately has included roller rinks!)
Bonus #1: Robert Schwartzman – “Out Of My Mind”
Bonus #2: Solobob – “The Victim”
Robert’s first solo venture, and the greatest music video of all time.
