Yesterday, PearlJamOnline.it, an Italian fan site of the Seattle grunge band (yes Pearl Jam is so famous that they have an Italian-specific fan site) dug up a duet between Vedder and his youngest daughter, Harper. The family duo rocked a solid rendition of the Batman theme—the hokey, surfy, super complex and wordy (just kidding) one from the days when Adam West was the caped crusader. It’s one of the more adorable things you’ll hear in your life:
The track appeared on SiriuxSM’s new Pearl Jam Radio broadcast during an interview with Vedder and author Mark Ian Wilkerson, as Billboard writes. Wilkerson recently wrote a book called Tomas Young’s War, which details the relationship between a young Army vet and an outspoken Iraq War critic—the latter became friends with the Pearl Jam frontman. What that has to do with Batman we may never know; the important thing to remember is that there’s no wrong time to record and debut that version of the Batman theme you did with your young daughter (as long as you’re Eddie Vedder).
The father-daughter duo also teamed up on “The Traveler,” a track featured on Cameron Crowe’s 2015 film, Aloha. Harper’s only seven years old now, but there’s no denying that she’s got the right genes. We could have a star in the making—this song could even cheer up Sad Affleck.
Let us know what you think of this little ditty in the comments below.
