Trademark-Infringing Tune Tuesdays VOL IV: Give a Little Bit

Because this is the off season and there's nothing better to do, because there are approximately 2,357,861 days until football season (that's just a guesstimate, give or take a few), and because it's Tuesday and you need a pick-me-up, I'm presenting "Trademark-Infringing Tune Tuesdays". Trademark-Infringing Tune Tuesdays is an off-topic post that will feature a band playing a song by a different band each week. Some you may have heard and, hopefully, some will be completely new to you.

Sorry to everyone for the lack of a Tune last week. The beach was calling, and it doesn't have reliable internet access.

But this week, I got to thinking about the very last concert in Beard-Eaves. The venue that has hosted Elvis, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen and others, and I was a little disappointed to find out that the last show was.... Sister Hazel, the Goo-Goo Dolls, and some other thing*. Not that I don't like the former two, but those names don't exactly carry the clout that those other names do. The concert was very enjoyable--certainly more so than the last few UPC has put on, but that's a rant for another time. I was definitely a fan of the Goo-Goo Dolls and Sister Hazel growing up. Not a big fan mind you, but it was good stuff, and if their show wasn't ideal, it was a capable send-off of the Beav.

And so, in honor of that last concert and Beard Eaves, here's a great Goo-Goo Dolls cover of Supertramp's Give a Little Bit.

Tune in next week when Trademark-Infringing Tune Tuesdays will feature........ another band playing a song by a different band!

*I think Summer Rockets or something like that. Whatever they were they nearly got booed off the stage. Granted, the lead singer did a one-man-band thing with all the instruments on a loop that was pretty cool. But that didn't make up for the other 40 minutes of suck.
