Certain Songs #1503: Pearl Jam – “State of Love and Trust”

Album: Singles Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Year: 1992

While “Jeremy” was what tipped me over into buying Ten, this barnburner was the first Pearl Jam song I ever loved.

As part of the Singles soundtrack, which turned me on to not just Pearl Jam, but also Smashing Pumpkins (which took) and Mudhoney (which didn’t); reminded me that the Screaming Trees were pretty awesome; and premiered not one but two Paul Westerberg solo songs, “State of Love and Trust” knocked me out from pretty much the beginning.
