#songoftheday: Pearl Jam – Sleeping By Myself

A more stripped down version of this song was originally featured on Eddie Vedder’s solo album, “Ukulele Songs”. This take, featuring the full band, retains the sombre tone of the original, but manages to come across as kind of beautiful and uplifting at the same time.

#songoftheday: Pearl Jam – Brother

Most of my favourite bands have a single song, or album that I think of as the definitive point where I became a lifelong fan. As far as Pearl Jam’s concerned, this is the one that “got me into” Pearl Jam.

I’d heard the odd song of theirs over the years, and always enjoyed what I’d come across, but this was the track that got me to listen through “Ten” for the first time. The release of “Backspacer” shortly after that sealed the deal.

#songoftheday: Pearl Jam – Yellow Ledbetter

There’s this old Disney short called “Music Land”, where all the characters are musical instruments and they only speak through music. The guitar parts in this song are what I’d imagine a super relaxed guitar from Music Land would sound like.

I refuse to look up the lyrics to this one, because I’m pretty sure that it would make it infinitely less fun to sing along to.
