Tuesday Tunes – “Let Me Sleep (It’s Christmas Time)” by Eddie Vedder & Mike McCready

Today, I’ve chosen this beautiful live performance from Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and Mike McCready. It’s especially fitting since tomorrow is Christmas Eve and today is Eddie’s 50th birthday. “Let Me Sleep” was originally released on vinyl along with the B-side, “Ramblings,” as Pearl Jam’s annual holiday single for 1991. This clip was recorded on the Arena di Verona steps in Verona, Italy on September 16, 2006. It’s also part of the 2011 documentary, Pearl Jam Twenty.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy Birthday, Eddie! :-)

December 2016 Update: The original video has been blocked on YouTube, so I’ve replaced the link with an audio-only version of the song.
