Watch Pearl Jam Cover ‘Let It Go’ From ‘Frozen’
Seattleites tag a bit of the Disney track onto their own 'Daughter'
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 above you can see the portion of the “Daughter” jam in question. 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.” Ever since Into the Wild, we’ve known Vedder’s into doing soundtracks, so maybe this was just his attempt at making his case for the next Disney musical.
