Eddie Vedder – Betterman – Live at Letterman

Dave Letterman is hanging up his boots from his popular show.

Letterman has been inviting musicians to perform for the one last time on the great platform.

Eddie Vedder played Betterman from Pearl Jam alongwith the studio orchestra.

I loved this version.

Check it out.

Pearl Jam – Comeback

I just realised it’s been a long time since i featured a Pearl Jam track here. And since i was missing someone today, this featured track perfectly fits the bill.

Comeback is a track written by Eddie & Mike and is from the self titled album which was released in 2006.

I am sure you will like it. Have a listen.

 

Lyrics

If I keep holding out
Will the light shine through
Under this broken roof
It’s only rain that I feel
I’ve been wishing out the days
Oh, oh, oh come back

I have been planning out
All that I’d say to you
Since you slipped away
Know that I still remain true
I’ve been wishing out the days
Please say that if you hadn’t gone now
I wouldnt have lost you another way
From wherever you are
Oh, oh, oh, oh oh come back

And these days they linger on
And in the night I’ve been waiting
For the real possibility that I may meet you in my dreams
I go to sleep

If I don’t fall apart
Will my memory stay clear
So you had to go
And I had to remain here

But the strangest thing today
So far away and yet you feel so close
And I’m not gonna question it any other way
There must be an open door
For you uhh uhh uhh….to come back

And the days they linger on
And every night when I’m waiting
For the real possibility that I may meet you in my dreams
Sometimes you’re there and you’re talking back to me
Come the morning I can swear that you’re next to me
And it’s okay

It’s ok
It’s ok

Oh, I’ll be here….come back, come back
Ahhhhh I’ll be here…come back, come back
Ohhhh I’ll be here…come back, come back

Whoooo whooo whooo whoo
Whoooo whooo whooo whoo
Whoooo whooo whooo whoo
Whoooo whooo whooo whoo

Guaranteed – Eddie Vedder (Into The Wild – OST)

Guaranteed is a track from Eddie Vedder’s first solo studio album, which also is the OST of Into The Wild. It is also said that the film director Sean Penn himself wanted Eddie to compose the soundtrack. If you have not seen the film, then i would suggest you to watch it. It will change your worldview.

 

Pearl Jam – “Black” September 2, 2012 Made in America Festival

(This post is dedicated to my friend who once asked me – Why Pearl Jam Black? What is so great about the song?)

I have been listening to Black almost everyday for 8 years now, i have observed two things.

1 – Mike McCready’s guitar solo is different everytime. I wait for him to play the guitar solo and every time he amazes me with his improvisation.

2 – Eddie’s freestyle ending.

This is not a great video (below). But the song changes once McCready starts his axe work. Lookout for Eddie’s freestyle.

Follow Pearl Jam if you still haven’t.

They are a grunge band with a difference.

They are an inspiration.

Have a great Sunday.
