Under Cover: Eddie Vedder

Eddie Vedder is most recognizable as the lead singer of Pearl Jam. He’s one of those guys whose voice is heavily parodied and often imitated, but I still think he’s one of the best singers around. One of the things that impresses me the most about him is that he’s incredibly good at singing other people’s songs. I actually think that I listen to him covering other artists more than I do his own music. Here are some of my favorite covers by Eddie Vedder/Pearl Jam.

The Waiting (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers)

Love Reign O’er Me (The Who)

Rockin’ in the Free World (Neil Young)

Hard Sun (Indio)

You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away (The Beatles)

Fuckin’ Up (Neil Young)

I’ve Got a Feeling (The Beatles)

Baba O’Reily (The Who)

There’s still plenty of covers out there on Youtube for you to discover if you’re a fan of this stuff. What is your favorite cover by Eddie Vedder?
