Just over a half hour ago, the formidable KISW in Seattle aired the new Pearl Jam song (Who cover) “Love Reign O’er Me” in their, um, Nine O’Clock Cock Fight, which pits two songs against each other. Thanks to Oxypoet, who knows I am as big of a Pearl Jam fan as he is, I have the full audio for you.
As previously mentioned here, this brooding song was recorded for the new Adam Sandler/Don Cheadle movie Reign Over Me, and contains lush orchestration — and several of the most skin-tingling Vedder screams in many moons.
According to the KISW DJ, this won’t actually be on the Reign Over Me soundtrack, only in the movie. That leaves it as fair fodder for the Christmas single?
