“Better Man” by Pearl Jam

Vitalogy (1994)

Pearl Jam - Better Man 

Brendan O'Brien heard PJ play the song during preproduction rehearsals in Seattle… after they finished I was like ‘that’s a hit, that’s fabulous why haven’t I heard that before?’ They all looked straight down, and the whole room was deflated. I knew I’d said the wrong thing.

It was very personal song for Eddie, and one of the first songs he had written. He didn’t want to hear it was a big smash hit.

 Eddie told me he’d decided to give the song to Greenpeace for charity…Chrissie Hynde from the Pretenders was going to sing it. I was like What? What? We can’t give one of our best songs away!

For some reason Hynde never turned up to the recording session. O'Brien says ‘I had no intention of Chrissie Hynde doing that song. It was like, over my dead body.’

PJ Twenty

# Better Man dates back to Vedder’s pre Pearl Jam project Bad Radio

It is late. I'm looking for good music that fits the KS vibe and I was gonna ask any you'd think? I'm really tired so sorry if I'm not making too much sense or asking something stupid. Your blog is the bomb btw, prob the best analysis I would say. :P anyways sorry for taking up time, bye

Thank you! And no your question is great I’ve always wanted to rec some songs for KS.

I would recommend this playlist by yoonbumprotectionsquad (it has ‘the perfect drug’ by nine inch nails so I’m sold)

Killing Me Softly’ Roberta Flack version of course. Very eerie when paired with KS thoughts lol

Animal’ by Chase Holfelder. I’m saying this one for the vibes it gives and not the lyrics.

Female Robbery’ by the Neighborhood. I think it’s about a boy who is abused and wants someone to take him away from his abusive house to finally be free and happy.

Serial Killer’ by Lana Del Rey. Yandere vibes.

Polly’ by Nirvana. The lyrics fit KS so well. Heard it’s about the kidnapping of a girl in 1987.

Every Breath You Take’ by The Police. Good lyrics as well.

Better Man’ by Pearl Jam. About an abused wife who dreamt of the good man her abuser used to be.
