**THIS VIDEO WAS RECORDED BACK IN APRIL OF 2022 BEFORE WE KNEW A LOT OF THE TOUR INFORMATION THAT WE OBVIOUSLY KNOW NOW. I GOT TOO BUSY ON OTHER PROJECTS TO DO ANYTHING WITH IT, SO HERE IT IS NINE MONTHS LATER**
All opinions are subjective, but my purpose in these videos has always been to dig as deep into an album as humanly possible and rank each song based off of three things. 1) It’s overall popularity. 2) How it’s utilized live. 3) My personal interests. Those ingredients together make up a tier list ranking that I attempt to be as fair and balanced in order to pay homage to Pearl Jam’s history. This one is the 16th and final tier list video for original tracks as I take what’s left over from the Christmas Singles and rank them. There are only nine songs, so unlike the other lists this is rather uneventful. The songs talked about here are Angel, Happy When I’m Crying, Falling Down, Santa God, Turning Mist, Santa Cruz, Fuck Me In The Brain, Last Soldier and Olympic Platinum. If there is a song you are thinking about right now that wasn’t mentioned on this list, the likelihood is that we covered it in a previous Tier List episode.
What’s great about this band or anything that you have an opinion on is that your opinion is yours and you’re well within your right to have one. Same goes for me. So screaming about me not placing a song where you want it to be adds absolutely nothing to the conversation. Be civil about it, you’re not the only person that loves this band and the songs don’t revolve around you. Peace and thanks!
