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.

11 Things You Understand If You Hate Physical Contact

Please keep your hands and feet away from me at all times.

We currently live in a world where EVERYONE LIKES TO TOUCH EACH OTHER. People enjoy hugs, high fives, tapping others on the shoulder, pokes, ect. For someone like you and me (I'm assuming you too since you clicked on this article), this is the WORST thing in the world. Whenever I think of someone touching me (even just a poke) without my permission my reaction is like Sofia Vergara in Modern Family.

I mean, when I take that love languages quiz, physical touch is always on the bottom of my preferences. So I thought to my self, you know I can't be the only person in the world that hates physical touching. So here are 11 things every person who hates physical touch will understand:

1. When people tickle you

I don't care that it's just for fun and jokes; I'm not laughing because I want to, you are literally forcing me to laugh. I hate you, get your greasy hands off of me before I make you get them off of me.

2. When people think they need to tap your shoulder to get your attention

As if simply saying "Hey" followed by my name wasn't enough. I don't need your grubby little fingers touching me. Now I'm annoyed with you before this conversation even started, what do you want?

3. When someone you barely know reaches in for a hug

I don't know who the heck you're thinking you're about to hug because it sure isn't going to be me. Hugs are reserved for people I know well and like, not you. Okay release me now, I am not enjoying this. LET ME GO.

4. When people tell you that you aren't an affectionate person

Are you aware there are ways to show my affection without constantly being all over you like a koala bear? Yes, I'm affectionate, hop off.

5. When someone is in your personal space

We could be best friends, we could be complete strangers. We could be lovers, I could hate your guts. We could be in private, we could be in public. I don't care what the situation is, if you're in my personal space uninvited GET OUT. There is no reason to be so close to me unwarranted.

6. You don't know how to comfort people

When you see an upset loved one, most people think they you should comfort then by pulling them into a long lasting hug. But, that's the kind of things that your nightmares are literally made out of. So, you stand there confused how you should comfort your friend/relative while also not sacrificing your touch moral code.

7. When people say you "look like you could use a hug"

Um no. I never could use one, get off of me. I will let you know when I want one.

8. When you're hugging someone wondering how soon you can release

Please end my suffering.

9. When you arrive at a social gathering and people rush to greet you with hugs

Let's not.

10. When you try to leave a social gathering by just waving to get out of goodbye hugs

Please no one make me hug you.

11. That one person who is allowed to hug you/touch you

This person, typically a significant other or best friend, gets to break all the "no touch" rules and we gladly accept their hugs and cuddles and public displays of affection. But only them, no one can copy them.
