    (But I only have 5 Shows so far, so maybe i am not "allowed“ to post here anyway 😉)

    This is one of my top 5 songs.

    Another one was Footsteps. In 2021 I was in a clinic because of depression and fear and anxiety and so on, and in one session they found out something very terrible which knocked me off. I was completely devastated and sad and totally out of everything. So I went back to my room, put on my headphones, pressed play and the first song was Footsteps. I was crying like never before.

    So you maybe can imagine, how I felt, when it was the first encore in Berlin the next year. Nearly too much for me. 
    Love your story. It's fine w/ me if you post here - but I have "only" 12 shows. I hope you are well. Music heals like nothing else.

    The Avocado album brought me back into PJ but I stupidly didn't go to any shows in '06 and I'm still chasing down 5 songs to complete that album, which is sadly not played that much anymore. I totally lost my shit when they started Inside Job at Camden '22. I caught Army Reserve in Boston as their tribute to John McCain - how's that for random.

    ahhh, that's tough. such a great song.

    Nice chaser. Caught it at missoula. Took me a hot second to realize what I was hearing.
    Being in London in 2018 and then not getting back for the makeup stings pretty bad...

    I would love to see Hummus performed live, with a special jam extension, and/or with special guest Jack Irons, and/or as an extended intro to Brain of J.

    Lucky enough, over 37 shows, to have heard everything I've TRULY wanted to hear at least once.

    I've never gotten Around The Bend. I need that to complete No Code.

    Aside from that, I'd love to hear Hard To Imagine. Only got it once, in 2006 in NJ.
    May your days be long, til kingdom come.

    It's somewhat comforting to see all the others saying "Who You Are," knowing I wasn't the only person that couldn't get to Moline. :)

    lol, bugs TWICE before Indifference, that's crazy.
    8 times it was played the night right before my show or the night right after which is a lot considering over half of those 27 shows were consecutive night shows or at the beginning or end of a leg.  The worst run though was Jul 8-12 2003.  I could only make it to MSG2 on Jul 9th and Hershey PA Jul 12.  They played it MSG 1 on Jul 8, and Mansfield 3 on Jul 11.

    It was mine and I got to 30 shows before Hamilton. The problem is it is never a happy intro when they do sing it.

    Gotta go with Gone as the new one.

    I suppose I would have to say I Got Shit. According to PJDB.net, it is the song pearl jam has played the most that I have not seen. I also would like to see Hard to Imagine, Parting Ways, Around the Bend and You Are. Any of these songs would sound great in St. Louis!
    Made this post before what would have been my 20th show, the cancelled St. Louis 2020 show. Ended up getting I Got Shit at the next show I went to, Ohana '21. Picked up Hard to Imagine last year in Fort Worth. Maybe I will pick up one of the other three I mentioned this year.

    It's currently Who You Are.  I think it's the only full songs off the first 5 albums I've never heard live.  I'm not so worried about some of the experimental interludes off the albums, but it's a real song I've never heard live.  Really hoping to get it on oakland.

    I would of had Sonic Reducer and Oceans up to 2016, but since then I've heard both multiple times.  I guess when the floodgates open, they open.  
    I've seen Who You Are a few times in the past. Definitely a song I would like to hear again.

    I wonder if it will sound nearly as good as it did 20ish years ago live.

    It's a toss up between Oceans and Tremor Christ. I'll go with Tremor Christ.
    Got Oceans at Wrigley in 2016 and Tremor Christ at Fenway 2018.  B)

    My white whale now would be All Those Yesterdays.  Fingers crossed for Fenway in September...

    Would kill for Hold On
    I have been blessed to catch just about every song that I have ever wanted to see live. If I can somehow get Hold On live one day (Philly 1 or 2 just saying) I would be able to die the happiest fan ever.

    Who You Are

    Aside from some of the creative tracks on Vitalogy, it's the only song on the first 5 albums I haven't heard live.   I heard Around the Bend at a solo Eddie show, but I still count it.  Would love to get Who You Are one day.

    I will say my White Whales used to be Sonic Reducer and Oceans, but I got those in spades during the crazy setlist tours of 2013-18.

    No Way and Brother. That Brother version from Newark 2010 is killer! No Way I got at PJ20 but had lawn for that show, and Stone really didn’t wanna play it so didn’t get the full experience. 

    Today, in 2024, I would go ape shit for Rival, Grievance, or fuck it…Johnny Guitar.

    Been fortunate enough to see Hold On twice, Evil Goat, Dirty Frank, Undone twice, and a lot more of the super rare ones. Breakerfall was my whale but have gotten it twice in the past two tours.

    I got Grievance back on 5/6/10 but would love to see it again. 

    After 29 shows I still haven't seen Rival, You Are, Get Right, Ghost, Fatal, Yellow Moon....any of those would be nice

    Indifference…scratched from one of the Wrigley 2018 set lists…this close!  Last early era track I am chasing and happen to also really dig it.  

    Gone and/or Big Wave would be next for me, but I guess the middle albums are put on ice for the most part with one song surfacing every blue moon.  Would love more tracks form Binaural, Riot Act, Lost Dogs, Pearl Jam (Avocado), and Backspacer interspersed.  Happy to hear Gigaton and Dark Matter as well.  Whole catalog fan!

    Opportunities for some/all of these at Indy, Wrigley, and Ohana…let’s f’n go!
