The 10 Best Young The Giant Songs You Need To Hear In-Concert

The 10 Best Young The Giant Songs You Need To Hear In-Concert

From one Young the Giant fan to another, you can't skip out on their next tour - you NEED to hear these songs in person!


I've been to five of their concerts, own all their albums and always manage to buy a tour shirt from every concert. Young the Giant is a completely underrated band that deserves more attention than they currently receive. I go to a concert and think, "How do people NOT like this music?!"

Well, if you're a fan like I am or just another music lover, consider attending a YTG concert just to listen to these songs live.

1. "My Body" 

This concert video is from 2014, and, let me tell you, the song has only gotten better four years later. "My Body" is a classic YTG song off their original album "Young the Giant." If anything, this is the song your friends will know if they don't usually listen to the band. You can't help but jump in the crowd and scream the lyrics.

2. "Waves"

"Waves" is one of those songs that you can't seem to know why you like it, you just do. The mellow beats and simple lyrics echo throughout a small venue and boom in a large concert, like Lollapalooza. This song is from their second album "Mind Over Matter."

3. "Brother's Keeper"

Off their latest album, "Mirror Master," YTG threw in "Brother's Keeper" as a total under-the-radar banger. Don't expect to hear this song on any Spotify playlist or on the radio, but it's awesome live and totally deserves a spot on your phone in a driving playlist.

4. "Cough Syrup"

Another classic song from their first album, "Cough Syrup" is a part of every set in each of their tours so far. Why? Because it's another crowd favorite and gets people to jump and sing along. It's easy to catch onto the words and makes for a "smooth" transition between old and new songs.

5. "Art Exhibit"

AH - this song is great in and out of a concert, but something about being so close to the band and hearing the silence of the crowd is something special you can't get at home. This song is off "Home of the Strange" and gives listeners a piece of YTG's acoustic side, rather than hard, alternative rock.

6. "Mirror Master"

This song is off their latest album and is extremely upbeat. The song is plain fun - giving you a taste of YTG's musical talent and unique song-writing skills. Although there aren't any live versions up on the web yet, I can assure you this song is worth listening to.

7. "It's About Time"

From "Mind Over Matter," this song is a head-banger. You can hear YTG's rock-side while appreciating the lead singer's amazing vocal range. Other band members stand out in this song, from the drummer to the bassist.

8. "Something to Believe In"

This song blew up on the radio once "Home of the Strange" released in 2016. When they went on tour for that album, YTG played this song in some of the last few minutes of the concert. It leaves you ready to download all their songs and become a total YTG fan.

Board Games Are More Important Than You Think They Are

They've become a defining part of my family.


Remember when you were a kid and you'd have a family game night? Or your friends would come over and you'd open the game cabinet and play at least three different games together?

Maybe it's just me, but those are some of my best memories from my childhood. My family loves games, board games, and electronic games.

Of course, as I got older, gaming consoles like PlayStation and Wii became more and more popular. That meant that the game cabinet was opened less and less, collecting dust.

Thankfully, I live in New Jersey near the shore and Hurricane Sandy left my family with no power for five days. Sure, it was scary not having power and walking around my neighborhood seeing fallen trees or roof shingles, but we were inland enough to not have had any flood water damage.

No power also meant no PlayStation or Wii games. The gaming cabinet was opened again, this time with vigor. Now, four years later, and I still think about sitting in the dark with a flashlight playing Scrabble with my family.

That was also the week I learned how to play Yahtzee and dominated my dad in every game. My sister constantly was looking for someone to play her to Battleship. We exhausted Rummikub.

The game was already a family favorite, and that's including extended family. Family barbeques had been ending with late night games of Rummikub for at least a year by the time Sandy hit.

We were ready to strategize and crunch numbers, but after day three, we never wanted to a number ever again.

This semester, there's been a surge of board game love again in my family. My sister bought Jenga, which we are currently trying to exhaust ourselves with. My favorite board game also had a comeback: Life.

I loved this game so much that I had the SpongeBob version as a kid. I would play it with my best friend, just the two of us, playing game after game of Bikini Bottom themed Life. Now, I have a car full of "kids" that I've started to make pets in my head. I can handle having five pretend dogs, but not five pretend kids.

I don't know what it is about board games, but my family has always had an affinity for them. We've gone through our cycles of playing video games and card games, but we always come back to the classics. Maybe it's more a defining part of my family than I originally thought.
