edited July 14 in The Porch
Here we will continue evaluating each LP from the Greatest Hits release Rearviewmirror.
We will now move on to LP 2 (Sides 5 and 6)
We will get a winner from each LP and those 4 will compete to find the winner.
Winner for LP 1 = Alive
Winner for LP 2 = Rearviewmirror

For anyone new to the game:
You are going to pick the song that you think is the "Weakest Link" after 2 days I remove the two (2) songs with the most votes.
We will then move on to Round 2. - Remember you are voting to eliminate songs from contention.

Have FUN!

Poll will close on Sunday, 7/16 at 3:00pm cst

    Cool seeing RVM pull out the upset over Corduroy. Both would have been worth winners. Would like to see Black come out of this one after it departed the Ten poll prematurely. Could threaten as an overall winner. 
    There are two types of people in the world - those who love Pearl Jam, and those who don't know that they love Pearl Jam.

    Pretty much a toss up between Nothingman and WYA. But I've been on a No Code kick lately and WYA edged it out as a result.

    Every time I view these fin polls my first thought is, "Man!  I've got to get this on vinyl some day!"
    We're living on the edge of something big. It's a fantastic time in history to be alive.

    Genuinely surprised to see Who You Are out to such an early 'lead'.

    That's what I'm pulling for. It'll be a tall order taking down Black, however.

    There's a reason it didn't make an official album. It's out of place here. Love the song, but it just doesn't belong next to these greats.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Oddly enough - "my Ten" includes the two songs from the Singles soundtrack. Mind you, I only listen to live Pearl Jam so any Ten compilation I have made has 13 songs.

    With the above said, there's a good chance I'll be voting against Breath next round.

    Breath is one of their five best songs. Stop acting crazy in here.

    Yes. I predict that you're not going to like the finals here as it'll likely be (spoiler alert) Black vs Immortality.

    Which makes sense, unlike Black being the weakest link in this list lol

    I don't think the studio cut was the best for this song. It evolved over the years on tour and is great live, but it just sounds too over the top with Ed's vocal delivery at times.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    It was probably discussed in the No Code rounds a few months ago but it was definitely a song that took the band on a different trajectory - both musically and in terms of their overall "popularity."

    I'm not sure what was discussed, but do you mean that people "blame" Who You Are on something they didn't like about the band's development??

    Yes. That pretty much sums it up.

    Huh. I personally think that is precisely when the band got really good, lol.

    I'm in the minority here but WYA is one of my favos. It was an oddball of a lead single. Can still remember where I was first time I heard it: playing out of opened door car speakers while taking a lunch break from doing landscape/maintenance work during college summer break. Good times :smiley: You are who you are.
