Ok,im bored and its friday night and im on the beer!
So its time to make a thread on my favourite band ever,well for the last 12 years anyway since i discovered them when i was about 15 years old,i love
them,with the exception of Riot Act i would say every album is a masterpiece(Riot Act awesome but not a masterpiece)and i love the fact no album
sounds the same as the last one and for me they are one of those rare bands that just dont make any bad tracks and you can gladly listen to a whole
album through without ever feeling the need to skip.
From the first time i heard Nirvana as a kid i totally fell in love with the whole grunge thing and each time i discovered a new band i was blown
away, from the likes of Soundgarden/Alice In Chains/Mudhoney/Screaming Trees/Green River/Mother Love Bone/Mad season,and it became a personal mission
to collect everything they ever done,its amazing that one city produced so many great bands within a few years, each one with a completely different
sound from the next and to be honest here in England, with the exception of The Stone Roses and The Jesus And Mary Chain we had a bit of a drought in
good music over here at that time!
Anyway i wanna see how many more PJ fans we got here on ATS,please post your favourite tracks!
Heres some of mine:
(apologies for some of the videos as its a nightmare to find some PJ songs on youtube)

I think it's one of the reason I like that song so much, McCready is maybe one of the most under rated guitarists of his time. I recall being situated
at the front on his side of the stage being mesmerized by him playing that. My favourite song by far.
Here is another under rated song that I love.
I could do this all night

My husband and I really love Pearl Jam too! Took the kids when they opened their tour in Casper Wy that year. Awesome. Thanks to Pandora we have
a PJ radio channel to listen to when we aren't playing the cd's! Will have to add my fav when I can remember the name of it.

For me, their first 3 albums were the best. I just haven't really listened to much off of their recent albums though.
I didn't either for a while. Then, they released a series of live albums in the middle of the 2000's. It was a great way to get back into them.
Especially since they changed their set list so frequently. I have 7 of those live albums, and they all spread such a wide range of PJ's music, even
the shows that were close to each other are often way different in songs.
It was just a great way to get back into their music for me.
Here are a couple other Pearl Jam tracks that are some of my favorites. They show just how diverse they are. Especially Mike McCready's playing. They
are both covers. One is another teenage tragedy song. The other...I can't even describe properly. Sort of an aural orgasm...Crazy Mary.
Hold me darling just a little while.....
Take a bottle, drink it down. Pass it around.....

Yeah. They kind of lost me on 'No Code.' After that one I basically stopped giving alot of their new stuff a chance. I'm not saying it isn't good,
I just wasn't as interested in it. Anyways, I'll try your tip, and listen to one of those live ones. Any particular suggestion for one that will
help re-open my eyes/ears?
I also wanted to add- I like your short song description. Just by the name 'Crazy Mary,' I wouldn't of known which song that was. With your short
descriptive verse, I instantly knew.
2 I have that I really like are Live in Chicage 05-16-2006 and Live in Santa Barbara, 07-13-2006. There's a few songs like Black,
Yellow Ledbetter and Porch that they do in both, but there are many others which are different.
I've always been a huge believer in the philosophy of Pink Floyd and others who don;t like breaking their albums up into individual songs to sell,
because of loosing the whole full album experience. However, I think that buying full live albums can give a complete album experience too, but
allows the listener to hear more of the songs the band likes to play while still exposing them to other music of the band they might not be familiar
OK....Some people may think this is sacrilege, but I think this video's hilarious. Even Eddie has joked about not knowing the lyrics to this song
though. Besides...we all need to laugh occasionally...
Watch this video of Yellow Ledbetter. With "alternate"....misheard lyrics. If you do know the real lyrics, you'll never remember them again after
"I don't know all the words.....yet..." and "Make me fries."
I wanna leave Bennigan's.
