Riff: Eddie Vedder – “Satellite”

Jan 15, 2013

Don’t you worry/I believe your story/You were put away for something you didn’t do

from Satellite lyrics by Eddie Vedder

The record’s most heartbreaking moment appears courtesy of arguably the case’s staunchest high-profile supporter. Written from the perspective of Echols’ then girlfriend, Lorri, way back in 2000, this ukulele-led serenade encapsulates her unshakable devotion to a man many felt was a lost cause.
