Pearl Jam are hoping that a new marketing push pays off big. Anxious to avoid the sluggish sales of 1996's No Code, the notoriously media- and marketing-shy band is cooperating with its label, Epic Records, in an effort to promote the new record, Yield, due in stores Feb. 3. Pearl Jam have even agreed to make a video, their first since "Jeremy" in 1992. Band members have had discussions with director Cameron Rowe (Singles, Jerry Maguire) about working on a clip for the current single, "Given to Fly."

"They felt, if we're going to do it, let's do it right," says a source close to Pearl Jam. (A band spokeswoman would not confirm the project.) The video, which may be extracted from a Crowe-directed short film, should reach MTV early this month.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
