    How a song like Sleeping By Myself gets put on Lightning Bolt in place of a perfect opportunity to finally do a studio cut of Last Soldier and have the same type of song in that spot will forever blow my mind. Last Soldier is so freaking good!
    they'll be time for laughing.  nows the time to cry.
  • I'm surprised this thread has stayed open this long. I'm surprised at some of the selections too. Leash? Aye yay yay.

    Ole is stinky. Some Backspacer songs are too (Johnny Guitar in particular).

  • The songs I have taken off of my itunes Pearl Jam playlist are foxymop, whale song, Gremmie, sweet lew and bee girl. All others are great!

    it is, but it wouldn't fit. i dont' think many bands use songs that old on new albums. 
    I can see shit now.

    I know, eh? It's incredible what they did with songs like How to Disappear Completely, Nude, and True Love Waits.

    Definitely hoping that one appears on LP10. I thought it might be a candidate for the OK Computer reissue.

    And some bands put a "reprise" version on the same album and then live just plays that snippet and never the original fucking song.

    They played Got Some and The Fixer once each this year... I think...

    So your bladder will explode inside you and cause a mess next tour.

    Obviously preferences vary from person to person and I agree with your statement - on the surface, anyway. The difference is that I'd put Help Help ahead of Dirty Frank.

    Well, I never thought about it, but yeah, absolutely. Fell in love with the song immediately, back in 2001.
    If anyone in charge is reading this: PLEASE, GIVE US A STUDIO TAKE OF LAST SOLDIER ON THE NEXT (BI)ANNUAL SINGLE!
    Thanks.

    They tried Life Wasted in Boston and it was a trainwreck.

    But yes I'd like to see them play it more.  In any event, wasn't really knocking Neil, sometimes it works.  Sleeps with Angels is far and away my favorite Crazy Horse record.  And hell the MIrror Ball sessions birthed Red Mosquito right out of Song X, so there is that.
    His eminence has yet to show.
