Song Of The Week #33

And yet another Into The Wild-related post. Well honestly, who can blame me? It’s a tremendously inspiring film.

Eddie Vedder – Society


This film has got to be one of my top films of all time. An amazing soundtrack, a touching story, and several inspiring lessons learnt throughout – it just doesn’t get better.

Into The Wild is the first solo album of Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder.

Now I don’t know much about Pearl Jam, but from what I’ve gathered, they’re supposed to be a very popular grundge-y, rock band that started in the 90’s. After the amazing work Vedder did for Into The Wild – a collection of eleven beautiful, folk-inspired tunes – I just may get into them.

Society is a cover of the Jerry Hannan song of the same name, and is track eight of the Into The Wild soundtrack album.

Listen to it here.

    Wait… are you joking that you’ve never heard of Pearl Jam? I can’t tell if you’re joking. You must be…

  3. Hey Jonathan! I had a look at your blog — what a treasure trove of all the music that &Fish has just introduced me to! We have both written pieces about how music and the memory of it has incredible power to burrow down deep into ones heart… Have a read of the posts about Mumford & Sons’ ‘The Boxer’, and also the pieces I wrote about two friends of mine: amazing South African songwriters/musicians: links to their music are embedded in the blog posts. Maybe you’d like to feature them if they tickle your musical fancy?

    Ciao, ciao (*giant smile*)

    Hi, again!! 🙂
    Being a book reader, if you haven’t already, read The Wild. And definitely listen to Pearl Jam! (Just Breathe is my personal favorite ;))
    But beyond that, I was excited to see Vedder get back to his creative roots and pick up a ukulele again. Definitely not of the Pearl Jam Vedder we’re familiar with!

  5. […] 8. Another favourite, albeit non-comedic, is Into The Wild. […]
