Yellow Bedwetter: Understanding Eddie

There are few bands I respect and enjoy more than Pearl Jam. Tight musicianship wrapped in potent lyrics and Eddie Vedder’s powerful and pretty voice… (yeah, I said pretty, he’s a man, I’m secure with it).

Despite all the praises I’m happy to lavish on the band and on Eddie, there’s no denying the man likes to mumble his words and no song so best illustrates this than Yellow Ledbetter – an old B-side that is a favourite among fans and casual listeners alike.

Well, if you ever wondered what the hell he was saying, here’s the song, with subtitles. I nearly cried.
