My monthly visit to the pit has me angry. What kind of a retard outright HATES this song? My guess is that the melody & chord sequence is too complex for them to follow.

Fucking love this song. The wife and I are renewing our vows for our 20th and this is on the playlist.

One of their best "love songs" for sure

A lovely song. Always thought it was a bit Jack Johnson'y with some Beatles. I liked it right away, but then it kind of faded for me. But I fell in love with it again after hearing some live boots and finding myself singing along. A very nice melody, and a unique song in the Pearl Jam catalog.

This is a weird one for me. I really like it but never want to listen to it.

Easily the best song on Self Titled, and is probably the best post Riot Act album track.

Absolutely on the first, and I'd probably agree on the second. I like a few of the LB tracks, but even my favorites are not as strong as this one. I love Mike and Eddie's work on this song; neither are typically known for restraint, but they both hold back until letting just enough sift through the cracks in the last few runs of the chorus.

I also love songs like this, where they follow a pop format but lyrically just blow through without returning to a repeated chorus.

I probably like "Man of the Hour" a little more than this one, but yes, this is beautiful.

That's why I said album track.

I love this track, it makes always think of my woman. I wish the band played it more, very stand out performance from portland in 06 on this track.

I wish I still heard it like that. The discussions on the old board convinced me it was about religion and I can't shake it, even though I want to.
