Listen to Pearl Jam’s ‘Wishlist’ from Billions, Season 5, Episode 12

American rock band Pearl Jam’s ‘Wishlist‘ showed up on the Billions season finale last night — Billions, Season 5, Episode 12, “No Direction Home” — the episode that aired on October 3rd, 2021.

Wishlist‘ was written by the band’s lead singer Eddie Vedder, and was released in 1998 as one of the singles from the band’s fifth studio album Yield.

While not an enormous worldwide hit, Pearl Jam‘s ‘Wishlist‘ charted on four charts in the United States, with its highest placing at #6 on both the Alternative Airplay chart and the Mainstream Rock chart.

The track also charted in Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and Poland.

Wishlist‘ itself is a really lovely, mellow love song with an addictive melody.

The song begins with just random thoughts of what Vedder wishes he was, only to realize as the song comes to an end he wants to be all these things so he can be closer to the woman he loves.

Listen to Pearl Jam’s ‘Wishlist‘ as heard on Billions on the video, and on the band’s Yield album below.

The hit Showtime drama series Billions ended its fifth season last night, but fans have no need to worry as Season 6 will be kicking off in January, 2022.


Meanwhile, if you have missed some of the twelve episodes of Season 5, Billions is now streaming via Showtime.
