    I got a stupid smile on my face on the bus coming home from work today when each of Release, Footsteps & CoT came on from the Amsterdam2 boot. 8-)

    All those yesterdays....I have noticed on boots and many videos that when Eddie sings "don't you think there's time to stop?" He adds "stop, stop" at the end. He sings it so funny and sweet. I just involuntarily smile every time! It's like the smile just pops out of me. This is such a great song. Starts slow and melodic and turns into a big bad ass rockin tune complete with vocal harmonies and mike solo. Love this song... Here's an example

    I always smile because of Small Town because I think of all the times singing along live at one of the shows.

    Down

    Down always makes me smile-I get so uplifted when I hear that song! :)

    So many but today it was a few.

    Down. Won't let the light escape from me...won't let the darkness swallow me.

    Absolutely agree with all of you - I can't help but smile whenever I hear Down (and when I watch the video of Down playing with clips of the band pre concert at MSG, I smile even bigger)

    I love those lines also Jen - but I sing it with don't instead of won't - not the first time I massacred one of their songs. I think Eddie would understand. ;)

    The beginning chords of Corduroy make me smile and 'One two three, four two three' is insta-smile.

    Pap, I see you have Throw Your Arms Around Me with the young couple in Australia - that song has such a summer feel and is light and makes me smile.

    Now if I REALLY want to smile, just hearing the guitars start and seeing EV dancing to Out Of My Mind is a giggle smile; along the lines of Given To Fly - esp the video with the signer who he dances with at the end. Something juvenile in me absolutely LOVES watching her sign 'fuckers' much to Eddie's delight.

    And I smile (and maybe cry a wee bit) every single time I hear Better Man - it held my hand for a decade and got me through the other side. That song made me go from liking Pearl Jam to loving them for not judging me. After the first time, I was Pearl Jam toast. And I smile now. Don't that make you smile? :D
