Why do you cut one of the most powerful moments of your ENTIRE CATALOG? I don't mind the singalong in general (though its a stupid place to put it YEA YEAAAA YEA) but man, that is one of the best moments of any PJ song, and when you expect "EVERYTHING HAS CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAINS" you are greeted with silence :(

Its ok if its at MSG and the crowd loudly sings the part anyways, but....its still awkward. At MSG2 Eddie did sing "spill my tincture" along with the crowd which makes me think the crowd singing the part anyways is not exactly intended, and was a pleasant surprise. But yeah WHY MUST YOU DO THIS?!

I know Eddie can't really hit those notes anymore but that's never stopped him before.

If I sang along I would very loudly enunciate "everything has changed"

Ed CAN hit those notes. The fact he sings Blood and Deep and those high-notes in RVM and Daughter is evidence of that.

Then why is he neglecting one of the best part of his entire catalog?

All the chant-y stuff needs to go away fast. The DTE guitar solo football-chant was bad enough but this butchering of Corduroy is a new low.

I think the DTE one was worse than this Corduroy one.

The DTE solo isn't one of my favorite Pearl Jam parts so I'm not that bothered by it. The chanting itself might be worse though. In Corduroy it really weakens that moment for me which makes me hate it more.

Yea, the singalongs and chanting is ridiculous. I really wouldn't mind the new Corduroy breakdown thing if there was no crowd participation.

That's silly. The crowd participation isn't what makes it terrible.

Crowd participation is fine. I just wish Eddie actually sang that part.

The "Do the Evolution" thing was fine when it happened organically in South America, unprompted. When Eddie tries to get the North American crowds to do it it's just Cringe City.

The Do the Evolution one is awesome. The problem with Corduroy is him not singing the iconic part of the song and bringing down at the emotional climax of the song to play with the crowd.

Because he so wants to be like the musical establishment that he used to hate and doing sing-alongs in every song brings him closer to that.

And for the record, I agree with you. I absolutely HATE the new arrangement. It totally kills any energy the song has and kills the (wait for it...) dynamics of the song for the worse.

the only place there should be a singalong is during an extremely long version of Daughter that includes significant hi hat tickling by Dave A

God, you guys weren't kidding about the Corduroy singalong. It's just brutal. Ugh. The bridge of the song is one of the highlights of the entire PJ catalog.
