Best Pearl Jam Songsidolangelx13
The Top TenXW
"Now I hold the broken glass, of what was everything"... Amazing. So deep, and emotional, and REAL. Makes me feel alive every time I hear it. I wish they had more songs like this.
Black is by far the most emotionally powerful song I have heard. It touches your soul and your emotions flows with the beats and vocals. This song becomes the integral part of my feelings, like it is being played within my head, my head moves uncontrollably with the beats and eyes remains closed. Truly magical!
the most beautiful lyrics ever written: I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a sun in somebody else's sky, but why Why, why can't it be, can't it be mine
One of the best songs ever!V69 Comments
I like it the best. Jeremy is second. Look up alive on SNL and you will see the most amazing video ever. - 2234
Eddie vedder words are speaking to my soul, I become shiver when I hear this song.
best pearl jam song ..should be at the no. 1 position ...
This is the best song on one of the best rock albums of all timeV29 Comments
has everything a song needs: nice vocal part, guitar, bass, nice drum beat... GOD! EVEN FLOW!
great riff and amazing vocal from Eddie - sharm7064
This is the true Grunge Song From Pearl Jam How on earth is this not no one
Plus if any song was going to be ahead of this one then why is it Black? Last Kiss is the only song that could be better than Even Flow.
This list is injustice to this songV20 Comments
This song never grows old for me. I first heard this when I was a child from my brothers. I envy their music generation. I just wish for the kids today to appreciate it too..
this is one of the greatest songs ever written - Marcopwnzatdrums
I think this is their second best song all time behind Even Flow. The only reason is vote for Jeremy is because I thought it might go higher. Still though, even if people might disagree with the order, the top 4 song here are Pearl Jam's best song. These song are all on one album, is just unbelievable.
This is a side note but I am proud to share my birthday with Eddy Vedder. December 23 is awesome.
This should be so much higher (than 4). - Songsta41V28 Comments
this song is really good - it is about abusive relationships - idolangelx13
This song means the world to me. Can't express it really. Listening to it right now with tears in my eyes.
Favorite song by pearl jam then comes last kiss and yellow ledbetter
I just love when Eddie lets the crowd sing.V8 Comments
The whole song is just fun. Can't believe how mainstream this list is too thank god black is #1 or I'd wanna hunt the author down.
The Guitar in this one rules. -
Pure perfection. Sounds like eddies drunk whenever he sings this, haha
This song is amazing. I love Black but this song of Pearl Jam is my favourite and also like "breath" which is surprisingly not in the list.V21 Comments
The best songs by Pearl Jam are the songs done well live, and "Rearviewmirror" translates well on stage. It's brimming with energy and progresses to an awesome climax. Works well live, even more so than "Given to Fly".
I can't relate to any song as much as I can this one, as iv'e lived through the pain of childhood abuse. This beautifully captures exactly how I feel and the build up in this song, is the best out of any song - ever! Towards the end it sounds like it's going to explode. Pearl Jam's #1 in my opinion.
So much emotion and energy on this song. Starts out with an amazingly catchy riff, then builds to a climax with Eddie Vedder's vocals on this song being one of his best ever. - NorwegianWoodV6 Comments
Classic Pearl Jam in everyway. Its hard to make a list of the ten best anything, but I'm glad to see that many of their best songs are represented on this list.
Incredible vocals, great guitar part, really goes to show how amazing Pearl Jam was. Inspiration from this song is tremendous.
Fantastic tune, one of my favorite entrances of any song (the drumming in the beginning). Always sill be my favorite.
This song has so much value to meV7 Comments
Ooh... Such a good song, really its fantastic I think the best from vitalogy and one of the best from pearl jam, the intro, the verse and chorus are fantastic, great works in the guitar and the lyrics are awesome... Corduroy its full of energy, the first time I heard it I thought it would be special and it this, excellent song long live pearl jam!
:-O! Can't believe that this song is SO bloody low in the list.. When it's so loaded with meaningful lyrics and originality! This 1 deserves being in the top 5
Shocking position for a song that should easily make the top 5
I think it goes without saying that this is the best Pearl Jam songV10 Comments
sweet blue love song :) this is dope
A truly bittersweet memory that shows PJ can be as intelligent as anything out there and touches the soul unlike much of the new crap being force-fed to us. Last Kiss is as real as it gets.
You can just hear the pain... The lyrics are sweet and innocent and the whole band just plays this masterpiece perfectly
Best cover of a song I have heard since Nirvana's version of "The Man Who Sold the World."V15 Comments
This song stands above the rest of Pearl Jam's work. The goosebumps experienced listening to this song are unreal.
An astonishing, beautiful album closer to Ten. Despite all the brilliance elsewhere on the album, and all the much-more-famous songs, this the pinnacle. A heartbreaking exploration of Eddie's feelings for his dead father, and one of the most beautiful pieces of music in rock history.
Tears, smiles, anger, oh... And the joy, simply one of the greatest songs ever - it has every emotion... Amplified!
It just gets me, simple as.V17 Comments
Listen to the MTV Unplugged version of this, and then argue that this isn't the best Pearl Jam song. Vedder's vocals are top class, and the instrumental is extremely underrated
Best grunge song ever...
The UNPLUGGED Mtv version fills you with joy
It takes me to a place filled with excitementV6 Comments
I am very much enjoying this song when;
1. I need time alone
2. I feel like a chill out.
3. I feel like listening to an awesome song.
The instrumentals of this song are amazing. Pearl Jam for me is a perfect mix of protrusive messages and imminent shivers down your spine. This song is just the epitome of just that. - kmanns
"A truant finds home and a wish to hold on to
But saw the trapdoor in the sun, immortality, " Some of the most amazing lyrics ever.
Amazingly deep with super haunting guitar solo. Pure genius for sure
This one took me a while to get into, but now it's one of my favorites. - Songsta41V7 Comments
Very deep voice by the greatest singer of all time-Eddie vedder. He really brings power to a very dull song. A masterpiece.
My absolutely favorite Pearl Jam. It makes you reflect on life and reliaze how far or not you have come.
Lyrics are absolutley amazing, should be top 10 at least.
How is this not in the top ten?
This song always makes me think of the movie "Into the wild" because of its similarity to the song "Guaranteed"
23? Oh come on people... Its a good song and definitely deserves to be in the top ten..
Why is this song so low? It's one of their best songs! Even Willie Nelson made a cover of it. The lyrics are amazing, this, Jeremy and Black are my favourite PJ songs!
On of their best songs of all time no doubtV10 Comments
How is this song so low on the list? Most remember the more commercial songs from this album, but this song is among their best.
Top 10 must be.
I hear Jeff Ammette's Girlfriend every second I listen to this song! I dono why this song is number 38!?! It must have been in top 10...
It is an amazing song. Beautiful bass and guitar lines, the drummer plays very strong, Eddy is a real Front man
This song deserves a higher ranking. an amazing start to a great album, filled with emotion
"ONCE! Upon a time..."
This song is so powerful in the chorus! It should be in the top 10! - paolo95
The energy in this song is contagious. Just one of the those songs that makes you want to move. I could listen to this song, and this song only forever.
Its such an inspiring song that lifts you every time you hear it. The ways Vedder builds slowly up to the chorus then lets it all go... Gets to me every time.
Whenever I crave an emotional escape I listen to this song. Its powerful and beautiful.
Can't believe not in the top ten, powerful song. Yield is an amazing album.V5 Comments
Really shows why pearl jam are pioneers of the seattle grunge scene. Lyrically and every other aspect of the song is beautifully rendered. Classic.
"I will walk with my hands... Bound"
I really appreciate the "screw off" attitude of this song. Sure, it's about death, but there's nothing more insanely badass than telling god off and walking into death knowing that you may not have an afterlife.
In my opinio garden is the best pearl jam song ever, because its a great song and shows why eddy vedders voice is so great, you are right in saying it is the most underrated song by pearl jam and oceans and elderly women behind the counter in a small town should be way higher
Garden is a horribly underrated song. It's a perfect sad ballad, with an amazing solo and outro. - NuMetalManiakV6 Comments
Every time I hear this song, It reminds me of KURT COBAIN... He was eddie's friend. The two legendary musicians of Grunge music... It's really an amazing song... Smooth, melodious and full of pureness.. The lyrics is also outstanding... In one word AWESOME!
Sheer magic! It makes you realize that in a world where the news is dominated by war and violence, you shouldn't get numb and look the other way. Besides getting the message across it's a wonderful atmospheric song.
