Tune in Tuesday (18) - Concert Edition!

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly music feature hosted by the fabulous Ginger at GReads. As some of you may know, I am ridiculously addicted to music. One of my favorite things to do is share new and favorite songs with anyone willing to listen. Or not so willing. I'm not picky. Anyway... Each week you can post a song and share the love of music.

This month is going to be seriously epic. Why, might you ask? Because it's Concert Edition at Tune in Tuesday, of course! All month long we'll be featuring bands or musicians we've seen or want to see. So link up and join the fun!

Concert edition continues! AND - after what feels like a million years - I have internet access again! YAY! Today is a good day.

So for today's Concert Edition of Tune in Tuesday, I decided to feature some tunes from a band I WISH I could have seen in concert... but I'll never be able to due to the fact that they broke up. I was a poor college student while they were together and I was saving up for a concert in Seattle... then they broke up! Seriously hurt my heart when I found out. Anyway, what group might I be talking about? Oh, only one of my all-time favorites, a Seattle grown band extraordinaire... ACCEPTANCE! I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do and I hope you feel the loss of what would have been an epic concert (and career, for that matter). By the way... I still totally hold out hope that they'll reunite one day... just sayin'. Hehe.

First up is the first song I ever heard from Acceptance, Different. These guys have some seriously spectacular lyrics, people... I mean, really! And Jason's voice?! Gah! So good.

Next is probably most definitely my favorite track, So Contagious. I considered using the album version of this track, but I just couldn't help showing how freakin' cute these guys are. I mean, seriously... look at them! Yowza.

On to another favorite (though, really, they're all my favorite), Permanent. I could have definitely shared every single song, but I thought I'd go a little easy on ya. Haha! But really, if you haven't picked up their album(s) yet, DO IT!

Though the group broke up to pursue other things, they were kind enough to share the last song they were working on Not Afraid. If this track is any indication, they were simply getting better and better with age. 'Tis a shame they ended it so soon.

And just because it's the Christmas season, here's Acceptance performing Happy XMas (War is Over) originally by John Lennon. Enjoy!! :)

Happy listening!

  2. Great songs!! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  3. @Tee - I know, right? So much fun to be had with Christmas music.

    @Jen - Thanks & you're most welcome! :)

  4. Right now I am *almost* wishing you didn't post these guys only because they are just so good together! Why would they ever break up!?!?! I now want to see them in concert or at the very least hear more music from them! They are definitely an awesome band, I'll be holding out hope the reunite too :)

  5. @Katelyn - Right?! Ugh, so sad. Every time I remember they're no longer together, my heart hurts a little more. :( I'm glad you like the, though! You should definitely check out their full-length album, Phantoms... and their 2 EPs, too. They're so amazing. :)

  10. I love all the acoustic sessions that these bands have been doing lately.
    I find myself liking these versions even more.

  11. @Karen - I agree. Sometimes the acoustic versions are so much... MORE. Love it!
