CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
“…Jeremy spoke in class today...”
Pearl Jam arrived on the scene in 1991 with debut album 'Ten'. Its 3rd single was "Jeremy". The song recounts the story of a youth with issues using a gun at school.
The tragic circumstances are outlined in the verses. Lead singer Eddie Vedder drew inspiration from a real life school suicide. Pushed to the edge by classmates and his home life, the song's protagonist takes decisive action.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
