Acquiesce is a song by the British rock band Oasis. The song was originally released as page B on Oasis` first British single #1, “Some Might Say” in April 1995. His popularity made him featured on the B compilation album The Masterplan, released in 1998, after being voted for the recording by the band`s fans on their official website. In 1998, the song was released as Radiosingle in the United States to promote the publication of The Masterplan. It reached #24 in the US rock charts, based on radio airplay. A promotional video for the song was also produced with footage of a live appearance at the G-Mex Centre in Manchester on 14 December 1997. The singing on this film was overdosynchronized by another performance. “Acquiesce” was also released as one of the main creations of the Stop the Clocks EP, as a promotion of their compilation album Stop the Clocks. A new promotional video was shot on September 12, 2006 at the Electric Ballroom in Camden, London, but not with the band. Instead, a Japanese look alike/homage group played the roles of Oasis. Other recordings were also reportedly shot in Japan, reflecting the idea in R.E.M. 1995 in a video for “Crush with Eyeliner”.
2. Etymology: derived from the Latin verb quiescere, “be calm.” It came in English around 1620, on French tolerance with the obsolete importance of “resting”. If you want to involve informed consent, you can use consent instead. Merriam-Webster, again, no. If you have given your consent verbally, you simply agree. By definition, tolerance is silent. Merriam-Webster defines the word as passive acceptance or submission and says: borrowed by French consent, return in average French, borrowed by the Latin acqui`scere “peace, find peace, be happy,” ad-ad-quiscere “to calm down” – more at rest to be satisfied or apparently satisfied, or to revolt without opposition or discontent; accept or accept by silence or lack of opposition; followed by `in`, formerly also `with` and `to`. ak-kwi-es, v.i. satisfied or unopposed: consent (with in).-n. Acquies`cence, silent consent or submission.-adj. Acquies`cent, satisfied with rest: simple: servile.-advs. Acquies-Cently, Acquies-cingly.
[L. acquiescerence-ad, and quies, rest.] The existence as we know it is full of sadness. To name but a small point, every man is a convicted criminal, he is the only one who does not know the date of his execution. It`s unpleasant for everyone. Therefore, each person would do everything to postpone the date, and would sacrifice everything he has if he could overturn the judgment. Virtually all religions and philosophies began so crudely by promising their disciples a reward such as immortality. No religion has yet failed in not promising enough that the current dissolution of all religions is due to the fact that people have asked for titles. People have even given up the significant material benefits that a well-organized religion can give to a state instead of condoning fraud or lying, or even in a system that, if not convicted, is at least incapable of proving its innocence.
