Blog Action Day 2010


Today is Blog Action Day, a day during which bloggers all around the world come together to write about a single important topic.  Even though I haven't been doing a whole lot of blogging lately (my reasons for which are summarized in a comment on a recent post on Feedback), I still wanted to participate in this day.  The topic for this year's Blog Action Day is water; this being a music blog, it made sense to have some music about water.

A few months ago, I came across a live version of Pearl Jam's "Amongst the Waves", which was originally released on last year's Backspacer.  That album has actually turned out to be one of my favourite Pearl Jam albums yet, and "Amongst the Waves" is one of my favourite songs on the album; the big, anthemic chorus is something that Pearl Jam really excels at, and I love the upbeat nature of this song.  While the song itself isn't actually about water, I'm going to say that it's close enough for my purposes right now.  I'll get back to more regular blogging someday soon, I'm sure; in the meantime, enjoy the song and feel free to check out some more of the Blog Action Day action - there are quite a few music blogs involved, if you're looking for a place to start.

You'll need to subscribe to Pearl Jam's mailing list to access the download.  If you're cool with that, the download link should arrive in your inbox shortly.  Happy listening!

I knew nothing about blog action day but quite by chance, the Feedback post for Friday was a very appropriate free download of Washing Of The Water. (See Free Download Friday #74: Washing Of The Water.)

I was in two minds about whether to be pleased I'd accidentally hit the right topic or spooked by the synchronicity!


P.S. Your Word Verification code was "fatist". More synchronicity? I know I'm a bit overweight but it's scary when Blogger confirms it!

I'll do that because it's Pearljam. Who can say no to Pearljam?...

Really, You provide a very nice blog. That album has actually turned out to be one of my favourite Pearl Jam albums yet, and "Amongst the Waves" is one of my favourite songs on the album; the big, anthemic chorus is something that Pearl Jam really excels at, and I love the upbeat nature of this song.
