Corduroy is to me what In My Tree is to Ruddo.

Tremor Christ, Last Exit and Immortality would be my top 3 on Vitalogy.

I'd say TC, Not for You, and Better Man.

It is wildly overrated, for sure.

I think the distance between Corduroy studio version and Corduroy modern live version is too big a chasm for a thoughtful discussion to bridge.

I think Last Exit, Tremor Christ and Corduroy are my Vitalogy Top 3 but I could entertain swapping out the latter for Spin the Black Circle in the right mood.

I've been skipping this song lately. I don't really know why.

StBC has been growing on me over the last year or so. I used to really dislike it.

I'm probably the only person who feels that way but Nothingman is probably my favorite song from Vitalogy.

Not For You, Nothingman, Corduroy, and Immortality are all 5-star songs for me.
Betterman is the only Vitalogy track I'd rank at 3 stars, everything else is a 4.

Immortality, Last Exit & Corduroy are probably my favorites from Vitalogy. Tremor Christ, Nothingman & Satan's Bed are right up there too.

I just want to say this song is amazing, and IMO it may even be their best song.

It's a song that took me a while to grasp because it is very very different.

For all that people say "Binaural/Riot Act are so UNIQUE. In My tree is so UNIQUE" I don't think it matters if something is unique just for the sake of being unique. That isn't a praise in itself. but Corduroy is VERY unique, I don't really know another song by anybody that is like it, but to me this one just WORKS.

The message of the song is something that you can feel through Eddie's delivery even when some individual lines might not make sense because he has this passion in his voice, and the music....man...when that middle section comes in, and those chords are just going, and the drums are booming, it is one of the most transcendent moments in their catalog it is SOARING.

And honestly this song is MADE by the drums, this song is held together and brought to new heights thanks to Dave A, this may be one of the most important drum songs in the catalog, the way the drums drive everything forward, meshes with the guitars and holds everything together...the guitar parts are strange in the verses, as I said, I dont know a song that has verses with instrumentation like this one, but the drums center it and make it work.

The banging drums on that middle bridge and the rolls....man....it is so powerful.

Its weird because it has qualities of some later PJ songs that I do not like but for whatever reason I do love this one.

Also some amazing lines in here..."everything has chains, absolutely nothing's changed, take my hand, not my picture" "Ill end up alone like I began" "can't buy what I want because its free".

This song is a monster and definitely the best song on Vitalogy...that whole album had a unique sound that comes through in Immortality, Last Exit, Not for You, and this one - and in this one it is perfected.

What. I've always heard that line as "Everything has changed; absolutely nothing's changed"

Huh. I think I like mine better.

I'm pretty sure it's "chains" in the first line.
