While it’s been roughly six months since Pearl Jam’s Backspacer hit shelves and heads, first single “The Fixer” was definitely beginning to make rounds three months before that. As much of a jam as it is, it’s going to feel dated should they play it. So if we assume they’re going to juice our tear ducts with “Just Breathe,” then we, speaking voluntarily and objectively for Jamily members and fan boys out there everywhere, would also like them to get creative when deciding on a mate for that song tomorrow night. Should they go fresher, play something new they’ve undoubtedly been polishing in recent band rehearsals? Or should they take us back in time with something from the back catalogue? Or, why don’t they appease said fan boys (hey, how’s it going) and unfurl a rarity at 30 Rock tomorrow night? That seems like a great idea. Might I suggest:
“Just Breathe” followed by “Breath.”
That would rule on a number of levels. In the meantime, go here for audiovisual treats. Send us your suggestions as well.
