This is a great matchup. Two similar songs, and two greater performances from the original period of each. The Brain of J performance is almost a note perfect translation of the studio track. Once has a more ragged and desperate energy, losing the polish that is on most of the Ten studio tracks. While I prefer BoJ as a studio track, I think I like this live version of Once a little bit more just because it transforms the song a little bit more into something that is a new, live creation. But these are both great

Crazy enough, I agree with stip too! Both great songs. Studio BoJ is definitely better than Once. Both are great live. This version of Once just edges out the victory.

Anyone voting for Once over Brain of J is stupid and ugly.

"Brain of J" circa 1998 is basically my Pearl Jam happy place.

I think I like the LA '98 BoJ better. I'm gonna vote for Once in protest.

Smarch again?! Hee hee hee how times flies, like the first Robin of Spring. Till Harley clipped his wings.


And here we are with all of my favorite Red Gnats...Stop, Vinnyguy and of course, Cut up half dead, you stopped too soon, ho ho ho!

to quote the old eye-talian,
Once upon a time
A girl with moonlight in her eyes
Put her hand in mine
And said she loved me so
I pushed her in a vat of acid
and wished she were Batty-Man instead


A vote for Brain of J, you wouldn't want it any other way! Ha ha ha, ho ho ho hee ha ha HA!
