• Eddie Vedder - All The Way

    Many of the Computer Audiophile readers are well aware that my favorite band is Pearl Jam. I sneak Pearl Jam references in to my writing as much as possible. Another favorite of mine is Chicago Cubs baseball at Wrigley Field. I've made the trip from Minneapolis to Chicago more times than I've made a trip to the Metrodome right across town. Making this somewhat relevant to Computer Audiophile is the new Cubs anthem called All The Way from Eddie Vedder. Plus, the song is now available as a download from the Pearl Jam website. Unfortunately it's an mp3 at 256 kbps. But this song is all about the content and I'm sure I'd still have it on repeat if it was 8 bit mono and barely audible. Read more for the link and lyrics.

    “All the Way”

    Yeah, don’t let them say that it’s just a game.
    Well, I’ve seen other teams and it is never the same.
    When you go to Chicago, you’re blessed and you’re healed,
    The first time you walk into Wrigley Field.

    Heroes with pinstripes and heroes in blue, Give us the chance to feel like heroes do.
    Whether we’ll win and if we should lose, we know Someday we’ll go all the way.
    Yeah, someday we’ll go all the way.

    We are one with the Cubs, with the Cubs we’re in love.
    Hold our heads tall as the underdogs. *
    We are not fairweather, but farweather fans.
    Like brothers in arms, in the suites and the stands.
    There’s magic in the Ivy and the old score board.
    The same one I stared at as a kid keeping score.
    In a world full of greed, we could never want more.
    Someday we’ll go all the way.
    Yeah, someday we’ll go all the way.

    Here’s to the men and the legends we’ve known.
    Giving us faith and giving us hope.
    United we stand and united we’ll fall
    Down to our knees the day we win it all.
    Yeah Ernie Banks said, “oh, let’s play two”.
    I think he meant two hundred years.
    Playing at Wrigley, our diamond, our jewel.
    The home of our joy and our fears.
    Keeping traditions, and wishes anew,
    The place where our grandfathers’ fathers they grew.
    The spiritual feeling if I ever knew.
    And when the day comes for that last winning run, and I’m crying and covered with beer.
    I look to the sky and know I was right today.
    Someday we’ll go all the way.
    Yeah, someday we’ll go all the way
