    I need help identifying a Pearl Jam song that I want to get a copy of.

    The song is slow (probably 90 bpm), straight 4/4.

    The bassist (Ament?) appears to be playing a fretless and does some simple, yet tasteful fills up the neck.

    The drummer plays a whisper-quiet two-stroke ruff starting on the "a" of 4 in many bars to augment his basic beat.

    "Her legs spread out before me ... as her" is the only stinkin' vocal line I can remember from hearing it on the radio over the years.

    I think the song appeared on Ten or the follow up.

    I can't access Lyrics.com from where I work (filter blocks it) or I'd look it up myself.

    Any help?

    yup it's off Ten

    but....

    Pearl Jam's, "Black"
    Misheard Lyrics:
    Her legs spread out before me as her body laid still.
    Correct Lyrics:
    Were laid spread out before me as her body once did.

    :bassist: great tune

    JH,

    Thanks for the info. So it's Black, eh? I had a hunch that my lyrics were wrong!

    One of the reasons I wanted to know is because my group's drummer plays ruffs too loudly for my taste.

    I want him to hear the feather-light ruffs on Black - a good example, I feel, of an embellishment on the snare that is barely audible, yet an important component of the groove.

    Who's the drummer on Black - Jack Irons?

    Thanks again - may have to pick up that CD soon!

    Yeah, should be Jack Irons. Matt Cameron came much later AFAIK.
