The Waiting

Pearl Jam's been slipping in under the radar of late. It might be the reissue of Ten, but Jeremy and Even Flow have been on my mind a lot lately.

Thoughts arrive like butterflies......indeed..

I was searching for a good version of The Waiting. I was looking for the Live Aid version - the version that started me on that whole Tom Petty phase - then I found this...

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part

Just watched it for the third time - so powerful. It's amazing how music can get to you that way... Vedder sounds so much like the Petty of old - as someone says in the comments - passing the torch to another generation... stirring stuff.

Waiting is terrible. Thank goodness for music that helps ease the wait.

So agree with you there Jay... :)
