Hello and welcome to what is a momentous occasion for me…  my 100th Laptop Session!  That’s — count ’em — one hundred acoustic rock cover songs, recorded after almost nine months of posting every third day.  Thus far, Jim is the only one of us to reach the 100 mark and Jeff can’t be too far behind me, so this is definitely an exciting time for us here at the music blog.

I wanted to make today’s session a great one, so I decided to go barenaked.  Barenaked Ladies, that is!  As I explained in my previous post, I love the Steven Page-sung track from Born on a Pirate Ship called “Break Your Heart.”  It’s quite the emotional tune and is certainly characterized (and highlighted!) by a classic Steven Page lead vocal.  I almost felt silly even attempting this song, considering that it is not exactly in my range, but I wanted to set the bar high for my next hundred videos.  By this time next year, I would love to have 100 more songs recorded, and have many of them be more ambitious, more perfected, and overall more exciting than even the first hundred.

I mean, don’t get me wrong; it’s been a crazy ride thus far.  But still, I’m excited to improve and increase the popularity of the blog.  It would be nice to know that people were actually reading these blog posts; it would certainly make me want to write longer, more interesting and informative entries.

Before I leave you to the video, I need to share one last tidbit from my day.  I hadn’t downloaded all the free music at Fusco-Moore.com/Store, so I took a little trip on over and “purchased” all that free material.  If you’re a Laptop Sessions fan in the least, then this is a must-have — we have eight volumes worth of acoustic rock covers, not to mention live shows.

Well, that’s it for me tonight — Aside from the fact that I’m nodding off as we speak and wondering when Jim will notice that I’ve completely slumped over on my laptop, I’m going to let my video speak for itself.  Stay tuned for another cover from Jeff tomorrow and another from Jim the following day.  And, guess what?  I’ll be back on the third day for yet another acoustic cover song on the best cover music blog in the universe!

See you next session!

This is one in a series of acoustic cover songs, original music, and free mp3 downloads here on the Laptop Sessions Music Video Blog.

  1. Thanks so much for commenting! It’s nothing less than awesome to know that someone is watching AND enjoying these videos!!

    Actually, I wish that was my room in the background… It’s actually my friend Jim’s studio, better known to us as Fusco-Moore Studios (see the links at the top of this page). And I also wish I could play the drums, but that — again — is Jim’s department.

    Now that I’ve exposed the true details of my video, I hope you’ll still enjoy my future ones. :-)

    Take care; hope to hear from you again soon!!

  2. this song used to be one of my favorites until about 4 and a half minutes ago—hahaha! Just kidding–you know I have to bust your balls a little. First, as a reader of many of your posts, I can attest that you do not need to make them longer (or more informative, but maybe a bit more interesting)! lol Second, you’ve got the gall to attempt this great Steven Page tune, but not enough gall to do it bareneaked? I think you made the right choice! Third, great job and I think even though it isn’t quite in your range, that put a nice twist on the song-making your version sound different. It was a nice challenge of a song for your 100th celebration, and I think a very meaningful one in your life right now too—am I right? But the one suggestion I would make would be to try singing this song in your “John Daly” voice because that would sound more like Steven Page!
