So much has been said about this particular performance of the song JEREMY by Pearl Jam that to add more words toopinion would just be making fewer words.

As far as I know these are the only accurate tempo numbers for the song, but who counts?

“I am 53 yrs old….my brothers who is 13 yrs older than me came home one day in the 70’s w the Born to Run 8 track…we listened to it together…he said…you mark my words Jane…hes gonna b BIG someday….i have been hooked since that warm Summer day when i was 12….i,never let go….MY BOY has gotten me thru the hardest times in my life…i listen to him everyday for 42 yrs…..n when i say…MY BOY….ANYONE WHO KNOWS ME KNOWS I AM TALKING ABOUT THE ONE N ONLY…..THE BOSS!!”

“… with the eyes of one who hates for just being born.” As good as it gets.

“An absolute classic. I’ve seen Bruce 12 times in England, Wales and in the USA, but this is the one song I’ve never seen him do. Will be in Cardiff on July 23rd, so fingers crossed.”

“This is a real beauty! Great video! Tonight tonight the strips just right baby! Yeah”

I searched in several places online for a way for Jim Deluva and his band, “The Jim Deluva Cover Boys” to imitate the sound to perfection at a bachelor party they are playing tonight.

Jim is in the driveway – cool. I had told him, “Dude, you should have been able to find a chart my uncle posted a long time ago.”

“I know, dude, I know – can’t find it. I want you to listen to the ride pattern on the cymbal I worked out, anyway. It’s 4 over 3s over 4s – kind of a Phil Collins thing – and Roger and Phil never liked each other, so I want you to hear it.”

Are these three songs best
a) at night;
b) during the day;
c) as night falls
d) depends​ on my mood?

Are these three songs best
a) at night;
b) during the day;
c) as night falls
d) depends​ on my mood?

Full disclosure, I love these​ three as songs of civil dusk. I have been blessed enough to listen and watch all three bands perform the songs that way, as can be seen in the​ links​ below.

Are the songs better
a) in their live versions;
b) in their studio versions;
c) it depends on my mood.

Full personal disclosure​ again: to me, I usually like these songs better at night, though my mood upon listening usually takes over. Nothing to brag of, I know! How about you?

I compose morning Episcopal music. The musicians on this page? THANK YOU 👉🏽❤️❤️❤️!!! It is an interesting thing to take a Martin Luther or Ralph Vaughn Williams or Martin Luther hymn and change some of the 1600s harmonies into 2018 harmonies. Hint: fewer diminished​ seconds, more 9ths in place of same. In some keys, as C, the major 3rd is a harsh interval as the E, to allow for equal temperament, stretches toward the perfect 4th, the dreaded F.
