Pearl Jam’s “Better Man”

Damn, Pearl Jam know how to write a song.

Until today, I hadn’t heard “Better Man” since I was kid (“Vitalogy” was the first CD I ever owned). I was heading home from lunch when it came on the radio. Talk about well matched lyrics and music. The part where the first verse transitions into the chorus by having the organ take over? Brilliant. “She lies and says she’s in love with him” – wish I’d written that.

Oftentimes I find myself amazed at some of the music I knew as a kid. Hearing this stuff with the ears I have now, it’s like I’m hearing it for the first time.
