In Memoriam

March 24, 1933 – March 25, 2011. Three cheers for Ella!

1. Elderly Woman Behind a Counter in a Small Town by Pearl Jam

Pearl Jam is probably best known for two things. First, as one of the bands that popularized grunge music from Seattle in the ’90s. Second, they are probably the only living example of a band that have become so big but have not sold out. If I’m not mistaken, Jeremy is still their only song with a music video to date.

This song, with its lengthy title, is from their second album “Vs.”, which was released in 1993. I remember one of my classmates in high school was able to buy one of the rare copies of Vs. that didn’t have the title of the album in the cover.

This video doesn’t sync so well with the audio, but it’s the best audio quality I found.

2. Be Strong Now by James Iha

James Iha was the guitarist for the Smashing Pumpkins from their very beginnings to their very end. This song was the single for his first and only solo album to date, Let It Come Down, which came out in 1998 while he was still with the Pumpkins.

3. I Will Remember You by Sarah McLachlan

Sarah McLachlan is a Canadian singer who gained popularity in the ’90s. Below is the official video for the song in the live album, Mirrorball. Trivia: the guy on drums is her husband.
