What a coincidence of events. Over on Beagles are people too, there’s a post about songs that we like but were too embarrassed to admit it that lists Lumidee’s “She’s Like the Wind” remake. Then on Baby Dog Days, Angry Asian Girl comments about Catherine Toth’s Daily Dish blog at the Advertiser. On the Daily Dish, Cat’s latest post talks about the Best & Worst Cover Songs Ever.
In this post, there’s a mention of Pearl Jam covering Israel Kamakawiwoole’s powerful “Hawaii ’78” song. I’ve heard this on the radio and always wondered where this rendition came from. A quick Google search found this Star Bulletin article talking about a recent Pearl Jam concert when they played their cover of Hawaii 78.
Even better, there’s a video on YouTube that captures this moment. Take a listen…
Even though Eddie Vedder’s vocals can’t match the power and serenity of Brother Iz, singing this song is a true sentiment to Iz and the people of Hawaii.
