Pearl Jam is an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1990. This band is also known as Mookie Blaylock which began it’s career as one of the hardest rocking bands of the early ’90s grunge scene, but has evolved dramatically over time.With singer Eddie Vedder‘s ability to paint a picture with a lyric or cut straight to the heart of the subject matter with his powerful delivery, Pearl Jam became one of the voices of their generation. In this post I am going to list down my top 10 favourite Pearl Jam songs.
I know you’ll be a star in somebody else’s sky,
But why, why, why can’t it be, can’t it be mine?
“Hold me darling just a little while.”
I held her close, I kissed her our last kiss
I found the love that I knew I would miss
When Eddie was asked about the song, he explained: It came from a small paragraph in a paper which means you kill yourself and you make a big old sacrifice and try to get your revenge. That all you’re gonna end up with is a paragraph in a newspaper. It does nothing … nothing changes. The world goes on and you’re gone. The best revenge is to live on and prove yourself. Be stronger than those people. And then you can come back.
‘Given to Fly’
Vedder on the song:
Men, we all think we can fix anything. It’s not necessarily a good thing. In a relationship, a woman will say ‘This is wrong,’ and we’re like, ‘I’ll fix that, don’t worry about it, we can fix it.’ These wonderful people, the woman you’re in a relationship with, they don’t want you to fix it. They just want you to listen to what’s happening: ‘Don’t fix it, I want you to own this with me—feel it.’ This is a reminder song to me, to stop fixing.
