Welcome to Thumpin’ Thursday – another busy day in the life of Jeff.
But thankfully that busy-ness includes the posting of another video.
Today’s song is by the obscure band “Dishwalla”, and I shall be throwing my two cents into the ring from some obscure songs that I have lined up.
They’re only known by true fans as well, and this one fits that description.
The song is called “Bridge Song” and it’s from their album “And you think you know what life’s about”. This album is not as well known, and did not sell nearly the same amount of copies as “Pet Your Friends” did.
This cover has more of a personal touch to it because I did not stick to the same structure that exists in the recording. Again, you’d have to know the song to know what I did differently.
I’m also experimenting with slightly different camera angles. This is because I continue to receive comments about my voice being “boomy” in the condenser microphone in the camera. So i’m trying to sing off to the side to see if that helps things. Tonight I did have graduation so I was a bit tired. I wouldn’t say this is my best performance by any means.
But still, please enjoy the song. I’ll be back next week for another tune from the depths of obscurity!
Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, Jeff’s acoustic cover song music videos are no longer on YouTube, but we decided to keep his cover song blog posts up. We figured these music blog entries would be good for posterity’s sake and because Jeff always gave such insightful posts each Session. We hope to see Jeff’s impressive catalog of acoustic rock songs here on the Laptop Sessions cover songs and original music blog again in the future. But, for now, please make sure to check-out hundreds of other acoustic cover songs from all of your favorite bands here on the Laptop Sessions music blog!
