    Any Ed solo song suggestions for the CD? I wanted to put either something from the Uke album or ITW.
    Society, Rise, and Guaranteed are 3 of my favourites. 

    I really love some of his covers too. 

    Ship Song
    Needle and the Damage Done
    Don't Be Shy
    Trouble
    Good Women
    You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
    Anything Bruce
    Masters Of War
    Let My Love Open the Door 
    Throw Your Arms Around Me

    The list goes on.

    Damn, it's pretty much impossible to keep this to only 5 songs.

    Lukin :lol: (unless you do slow version)
    Be sure to add in the "two ways to skin a cat" intro.

    Definitely going to have Last Kiss (again, only because she already knows and likes the original), Just Breathe, and Future Days.

    haha, I'm staying away from live versions only because some people tend to like the studio versions more. I would prefer (and I'm assuming almost everyone in this thread would too) the live version, but I'm only going with studio versions.

    Here's what I went with:

    1. Tonight You Belong to Me
    2. Just Breathe
    3. Longing to Belong
    4. Future Days
    5. Society
    6. Last Kiss

    If I was going to include, Last Kiss, then I could stick to just five. She came into town this weekend, so I gave her the CD.

    I'll report back on her thoughts on the songs, and if her opinion of Ed's voice changes or not.

    what part of Pearl Jam songs don't people understand? :confounded:

    Well, part of the goal included changing her mind about Ed's voice....so I'm sure that is where the Ed solo songs for the bill.
    (Guessing you were asking about that, and the thread title)

    That's exactly it. Of course there are much better PJ songs (or even Ed solo songs) that I could had put on there. My main goal is to change her opinion on Ed's voice. I know she will never become a PJ fan.

    NOT just breathe, anything but that.

    But I would say....

    Anything you lose from being honest
    You never really had to begin with.


    Sometimes it's not the song that makes you emotional it's the people and things that come to your mind when you hear it.

    She hasn't even listened to it yet! I just sent her a text to urge her to give it a spin.

    Here's my mom's reaction:

    "I have to admit, this is not the Pearl Jam I thought I knew. The lyrics are meaningful and thoughtful. Thanks for slecting some songs that would change my mind about Pearl Jam! I also take back that he can't sing. He is quite good. If you hadn't made the CD for me, I wouldn't have known."

    I do not ever see that happening, but I also never thought she would appreciate PJ/Ed's voice, so I guess you never know.

    Took my mom to Elton John last year. One of the best moments I have ever had with my mom. I do not see her ever wanting to go to a Pearl Jam concert but there are definitely songs she likes. Mostly ones I do not though lol.
