The Seattle band tag a bit of the Disney track onto their own 'Daughter' in Italy
Pearl Jam's known for mixing a handful of staple covers (including Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World") into their marathon set lists, but Saturday night in Milan, Italy they threw in an unexpected number. As Stereogum points out, during an extended rendition of their classic Vs. cut "Daughter," they mixed in a bit of the chorus of "Let It Go," the inescapable, Oscar-winning hit from Disney's Frozen.
In some fan-shot footage (below) you can see the portion of the "Daughter" jam in question.
Source 1's take:
Eddie Vedder's straining to reach the upper notes of the chorus, but those endearing vocal cracks give the kiddie cut a surprising amount of pathos, especially when you consider that it had come after the melodrama that marks "Daughter."
Source 2's take:
Either everyone in Pearl Jam has gone insane, or they’re hoping to cash in on the little girls and their crazy moms market. During a show in Milan, the group stopped playing “Daughter” to cover “Let It Go,” the world’s most inescapable song. Expect to hear it a Pig Destroyer concert any day now.
[sounds like they also tagged Dead Moon's "It's Ok" at the end]
