Pearl Jam Wedding Songs [The Bands Best For Your Special Day]

If you are a big fan of the band Pearl Jam, then naturally you will want to play one or several of their songs on your wedding day.

Being a hard rock band by nature however, means that it may be a little more difficult to think about what songs are going to be best or truly appropriate. Besides, your partner may not be best pleased if you choose incorrectly!

So, I decided to spend some time listening to the full discography of Pearl Jam; from the time they started getting traction in 1990 all the way to present day.

What you will find below is a list of the best songs that you can consider adding to your wedding playlist.

So, without further ado, let’s take a closer look at each and every one of them!

Just Breathe

The lyrics you will love

“Stay with me
You’re all I see

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?”

Amongst The Waves

The lyrics you will love

“Love ain’t love until you feel it
Up riding high amongst the waves
I can feel like I
Have a soul that has been saved”

Future Days

The lyrics you will love

“If I ever were to lose you
I’d surely lose myself
Everything I have found dear
I’ve not found by myself
Try and sometimes you’ll succeed
To make this man of me
All my stolen missing parts
I’ve no need for anymore

I believe
And I believe ’cause I can see
Our future days
Days of you and me”

You Are

The lyrics you will love

“Love is a tower
Of strength to me
I am the shoreline
But you’re the sea

You are
You are”

Harvest Moon

I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart”

Throw Your Arms Around Me

The lyrics you will love

I will come to you in the daytime
I will raise you from your sleep
I will kiss you in four places
As I go runnin’ down your street

I will squeeze the life right out of you
I will make you laugh, and make you cry”


The lyrics you will love

“Thought it was easy to fall in love but you, you, you
You’re different this much I know yeah, you, you, you
It might be your guile, it could be your mind
It might be the way you take your timeOh, you, you, you
You, it’s you”

Thin Air

The lyrics you will love

“There’s a light, when my baby’s in my arms,
There’s a light, when the window shades are drawn,

Hesitate, when I feel I may do harm to her,
Watch it all, cause this feeling we can share.

And I know she’s reached my heart, in thin air.”

Around The Bend

The lyrics you will love

“You’re an angel when you sleep
How I want your soul to keep
On and on around the bend”


The lyrics you will love

“Oh with you I could never be alone

Without You

The lyrics you will love

“For every wish upon a star
That goes unanswered in the dark
There is a dream I’ve dreamt about you”

Longing To Belong

“I may be dreaming but I’m
Longing to belong
To you”
