    13. Chris Morrison says:

      If they didn’t play Corduroy at a concert, I would be a bit letdown. Love that song!

    20. Laura E. says:

    22. colin says:

      Not for you is the BEST pearl jam song by far!

    23. Deirdre Rowland says:

      It has to be “Jeremy” – very intense song about abuse that really spoke to the dark side of current events in the media at the time. The video was also very haunting – the lyrics “Jeremy spoke in class today.” Almost similar to “I Don’t Like Mondays” by Boomtown Rats but a decade later.

    24. Chris Bold says:

      Alive as in great to be “alive”

    25. Laura says:


    26. Shannon Roberts says:

      Since I have to pick, I guess I’ll go with “Better Man”.

    45. Jolene says:

      Mudhoney – “Here Comes Sickness” released off their s/t LP in 1989 on sub pop records

      Pearl Jam – “State of Love and Trust” released on the “Singles Soundtrack” CD in 1992. Singles was a Cameron Crowe movie about dating in Seattle, during the grunge era.
      video: (unplugged version of the song!)

    61. Dom says:


    62. john says:

      “Footsteps” still sends shivers up my spine every time I hear it. It’s part 3 of The Mamasan Trilogy. And the fact that the recording of the song on the “Jeremy” single is a performance from a live radio broadcast makes it all the more incredible.

    63. J says:

      Better man. And even flow

    71. Michael Gleboff says:

      No Way, by Pearl Jam. It reminds me of my Uncle, who’d often have it playing when I went and visited (was his favorite song, too). Oddly enough, hearing it now and understanding the meaning behind it reminds me of him more.

    72. Emily H says:

      I love Just Breathe by Pearl Jam

    73. Ennie says:


    74. Dennis says:

      I love “Amongst the Waves” by Pearl Jam

    188. Margaret Mc says:

      “Crazy Mary”

      I like this song for many reasons, but it always makes me laugh because it’s one of those songs that I always screwed up the lyrics to while singing along. There’s a line that goes…. “Sometimes we did but her hands flew from her side, Wild eyed crazy Mary”. I always thought it said “ONE eyed crazy Mary”. Oh well, cracks me up whenever I hear it, kinda a sad song too though when you get right down to it….

    189. cheryl says:

      crazy mary

    190. jeff says:

    195. Alana says:


    196. Lyndsey says:

      They have such a catalogue this question is almost impossible to answer. But I have to say ‘Black”.

    197. NathJam says:

      I like dang near anything, but I also have a soft spot for their rendition of Last Kiss.

      Their rendition made it seem like a much sadder song than the original which almost had a jauntiness to it despite it’s subject matter heh.

    198. Kelli says:

      There are so many, but most recently I’ve been enjoying Even Flow.

    199. Tascha says:

      I love a lot of their songs, but my favorite pearl jam song is Black. Boy, I would love to go to this concert so much.. I’d never be able to afford it, it would be a dream come true… thank you so much, if you’ve drawn me.!

    200. Doug says:

      Evenflow, Jeremy, Brother…um.. can’t pick just one!

    209. Shana says:

      I bought Ten a few weeks after it came out and played it constantly…How can I pick just one tune off of it? I made out with a cute guy (when I was 18 in ’92) to Evenflow, so I guess it would have to be that.

    210. Karen P. says:

      Classic Evenflow

    211. Susan says:

      Hard to pick just one, but I would have to say “Breathe” since it has a lot of meaning to me and my boyfriend.

    212. Glen says:

      Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town

      “I seem to recognize your face….”

    219. Krista says:

      Its hard to decide. I’ll say ‘Jeremy’, it reminds me of my teens and school dances.

    220. Heather says:

      Favourite PJ song…

      Nothingman for when I’m wistful.
      Given to Fly for when I’m hopeful.
      Why Go for when I’m angry.
      Betterman for when I’m nostalgic.
      Footsteps for when I’m sad.
