    it was/is a GREAT opener. listen to the holmdel 2003 bootleg. what an amazing night. :D :D :D

    this song deserves a big ol' *bump*. ;)


    Thats the only show I saw them play it live. It is a great opener. I always loved the song but seeing it live really brought it home.

    Whenever I listen to this song, I DO get nice, squiggly feelings about Ed and sex and... but really, it's about his giult over cheating on his woman, so ultimately it's a sad & angry little tune.

    what's clean is pure, but hey, i'm white on the outside, though i stray
    what she don't know today, might kill us both tomorrow, bring it back some way
    bring it back, back, back... to the clean form, to the pure form


    to me all of this means...even if you are never *caught*...you know you cheated and wronged your partner.........and how you wish you could bring it back to how it once was. to me - this song is very straightforward lyrically. could be just me though. :p

    Oh, sure, don't get me wrong. ANYthing he touches is dead sexy. Hence, my name. My heart belongs to him...

    Oh, and David Wenham (plays Lord Faramir in LOTR). They'll simply have to share me. :)

    well yes, but of course............however, even though this song is really sad/tragic.....the lyrics somehow STILL are so unbelievably sexxxy....and of course ed's growling of the words, such emotional intensity at the end......mmmmmmmm.......

    I always listened to this song after I broke up with my gf. I just wanted to forget about her but I couldn't get her out of my head. I needed something to "wash my love" because i was black on the inside. Amazing song.

  • I just loooove that song!!!!! Can anyone explain to me why they didn't put it on Ten ?!?

    I have always thought of the "white" part as representing innocence. Thus "white on the outside" ...innocent in appearance, though I stray (cheat). Planting the devils seed=sex with someone other than the one you're with. I never thought this song had much mystery to it. Interesting to read some other perspectives.


    This is exactly my take on the song. Infidelity in a relationship. The devil's seed could also be temptation, but the end result is the same.

    yes.....such an amazing tune. look at many of the songs on lost dogs, demonstrates all the more the brilliant quality of pearl jam's music, that these tracks were left off of earlier studio albums for various reasons.

    i love, love, looooooooooooovvveee wash.

    Brilliant. The way its sung and the lyrics. Brilliant.
  • wash_wash_ Posts: 1,073
    Yes, like someone said earlier...it's simple and understated, even the vocals are somehow. That's what I like about it....and it has a gentle groove throughout the song, I think thats what makes it sexy.

    SUCH an unbelievable song! Definitely one of my favs as well. It's sooooo pretty. Agreed, the imagery is awesome. LOVE these lyrics. LOVE all these marine like sounds. I don't know, just such a watery feel to it all. I love that. The entire feel of the song just washes over you, "clean and pure"....exactly! PJ is just SO brilliant like that. :o Also, I must agree...there IS indeed some sexiness going on here. This line alone is just :o :o :o :o

    ~**wash my love**~

    WheW!!!

    *melts*

    And the way Ed belts that out at the end!? :eek: *CHILLS ALL OVER*


    YES...here's to hearing this one live in '06. :) OOooooooh pleeeeease. :)
    I actually have yet to experince this beauty live and I would SOOOOO like for that to change!!!!

    wash is definitely one of those songs that catches your attention the first time you hear it. a lot of people can relate to it and i think thats why it's so heart felt. and yes, very sexy.
