Senior Alex Light is currently listening to “Just Breathe” by Pearl Jam. The song was released in 2009 on the album “Backspacer.”

“I’ve been recently getting back into Pearl Jam, and ‘Just Breathe’ is one of my favorites,” Light said.

The song is set to the slow sounds of a guitar. The lyrics are meaningful and the singer sounds very mellow. The song gives the impression of a man wishing to stay with his dying wife and finally coming to terms with her death.

“[‘Just Breathe’ is] really calm,” Light said. ”The lyrics are really good, and overall it’s just a really good song.”

“Just Breathe” is the fifth song on the band’s album “Backspacer.” It was also one of the band’s highest-ranking songs. The band debuted in 1990 with the album “Ten.”

If you want an emotional song that has a very calm flow, listen to “Just Breathe” by Pearl Jam.
