A Celebration rules!!!

I just downloaded a live version of A Celebration from Audiogalaxy and was surprised about the energy they used to have in the old days! Sometimes I wish I was born 15 years earlier...

omg, I adore that song! Talk about high energy! I wish they'd trot it out and do it live again. lol. I'd be dancing up a storm. Now you know where all the "shaking" in Salome came from.

Shake, Shake, Shake, Shake!!!

ACROB@T sent me a boot of an early show with "A Celebration" on it...I've been listening to that song over and over...I'm listening to it right now, actually. I love it!

I still wonder why A Celebration was never put in an album, War to be precise.

Oh yes, A Celebration definitely makes being older worthwhile!
I love it, and its video!

"A Celebration" is definitely one of their most underrated songs, and also one of my all-time favorites. I have never heard a live version before, however. I think I'm going to have to hightail my ass over to Audiogalaxy!

i bet it would have worked nicely in place of "Surrender"

Not that it matters at this point

OMG. A thread dedicated to my favorite underrated song. This song doesn't get the credit it deserves and yes, it should have been included on War. Oh well.
