30DoM, Day 24: I Have Wished For So Long

Or: A song that I want to play at my funeral

Because there are only two tracks in it, at first I didn't feel I got my money's worth with Pearl Jam's Merkin Ball. Over the years, though, "Long Road" grew on me.



Here and here are live versions of the song. They feature Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, a nephew of the late great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan with whom Vedder re-recorded "The Long Road" for the Dead Man Walking soundtrack.
