**** ▓ Toch wel een mooie plaat van "Pearl Jam" uit eind 1995 !!! Kwam samen met hun plaat "Long Road" in januari / februari 1996 in de Hollandse hitlijsten !!! Gezamelijk terug te vinden op hun EP: "Merkinball" !!! Daarbij vond ik "Long Road" wat tegenvallen !!! (NL Top 40: 4 wk / # 25) !!!
****** My lips are shakin <br>My nails are bit off <br>It's been a month and a day since I've heard myself talk <br>Only advantage this lifes got on me <br>Picture an empty cup in the middle of the sea <br><br>And I fought back in my mind <br>Never lets me be right... <br>I got memories, I got shit <br>So much it don't show... <br><br>Oh, I walked the line... <br>When you held me in at night <br>Oh, I walked the line... <br>When you held my hand and I... <br><br>On empty shells seem so easy to crack <br>Got all these questions <br>Don't know who I could even ask <br>So I'll just lie down and wait for the dream <br>Where I'm not ugly and you're lookin at me <br><br>And I'll stay in bed... <br>Oh, little I've seen there <br>If just once I could be loved... <br>Oh, I'd stare back at me <br><br>Oh, I walked the line... <br>When you held me in at night <br>Oh, I walked the line... <br>When you held my hand and I <br>Oh, I walked the line... <br>When you held me close at night <br>Oh, I paid the price... <br>Never held you in your eyes
***** Eher wenig bekannte, aber schöne Nummer, die vor allem<br>vom Refrain und der feinen Gitarrenarbeit lebt.....<br><br><br>P.S. Ha, ha, bin tatsächlich der erste Schweizer, der den<br>Song bewertet, nach drei Niederländern (!!), einem <br>Australier und einem Österreicher.....:) Last edited: 29/11/2010 22:05
*** Not a fan of the vocals sadly. They get pretty difficult to listen to sadly. The parts where his vocal is softer are really nice though. It's fine but not really a satisfying listen. Also feels too self-indulgent but that's probably just me. Mostly interesting to me out of fascination that something un-radio friendly like this managed to chart so high, even when coming from a well known band.
