New show every Friday and remember if you love someone hug them right now.


  • Sorry Mr. Eagle Flight Trainer, but I’m not a big Pearl Jam fan and out of all their songs that one is at the bottom of my list.

  • Big Pearl Jam fan over here. And I LOVE that particular song. I said to myself, “I’ll listen to Chris’s song with an open mind but my mouse is hovering over the Pearl Jam button.”

  • Two weeks in a row now, you’ve made it very tough. I love “If ever I stray,” but the other choice is PJ. Even though “Just Breathe” got a little over-played, there was good reason for that: It’s a great song. My vote goes with Jim this week for Pearl Jam.

  • Tough one this week, like Frank Turner, but love that PJ song.
    BTW, does Jim have a good fan club number?

  • Martha Quinn’s hair was short and silly! But, she was the only VJ to have inspired a Mojo Nixon song.

    Certain bands I can’t imagine voting against. Pearl Jam is one. Another good week guys.


  • Chris – don’t you win either way if you love Pearl Jam?

    Jim – The SNL version of “Just Breathe” (PJ20 Soundtrack) is superior in my opinion, but its still a great song either way. Are you in the 10Club?

    I’m not gonna say who I voted for but you can maybe infer from my comments!

    • Love the SNL version as well but something about this video being shot in Seattle that swayed me-Yes a member most of my adult life! Thank you for watching!

  • Thanks for watching and commenting everyone. Did you like the questions? The answers? Have any further questions? Ask away.

    and yes Sachyn it’s win-win. Jim’s been picking some great tunes. He introduced me to Young Hines. Loving that cd.

  • Have to go with Frank Turner. Nothing against PJ, they’ve had their time but if you want to liven up a party or get people smiling you play If I Ever Stray, not newer Pearl Jam stuff.

  • I love both of these artists, but Frank has PJ beat on this one. Just Breathe is one of the weakest songs on Backspacer. Whereas If Ever I Stray is one of the strongest on England Keep My Bones.

  • Got to give it up for Frank Turner. He’s one of my favorite new artists! Although that is a gorgeous Pearl Jam song.

  • Thanks Brendan and Melissa.

    and remember this is episode 6 don’t be afraid to check out the first 5. You might find more songs to love.

  • OK, Bulldog, you know I love ya and those lyrics are brilliant, but I love, love, love that Pearl Jam song…sorry!

  • Man!
    Jim just can’t get a break –
    I think you need to do a week where you pull the video from the hat and introduce the one you pull. That way, the audience would not know WHO is behind the video –
    Let’s see if people are playing favorites!
    That said – I am loving the music – Great gateway into the music of Frank Turner and I love the simple imagery –

  • tough going up against Pearl Jam, especially such an excellent song. That being said, I think Chris found the video and the artist. Plus, Pearl Jam is cheating . . . . just a little bit?

  • I have you to thank for the education. I am happy you guys had a great time. Next years mix will more black taxi and now some Hacienda

  • I have yet to read their books, though I have *seen* the debaets on the FIAR boards. So, I have nothing to debate! 🙂 From what I have heard, I am sure I would agree with most of what they have written, for what it’s worth. So glad you visited my blog this week my sweet Texas friend! I am responding to your questions on my blog if ya wanna check back 🙂
