Welcome to the Laptop Sessions music video blog! Here, you'll find cover songs, original music, & music reviews updated every weekday! We hope you enjoy the acoustic covers, free mp3s, chords, tabs, and music reviews here on the site!
Welcome to your latest version of Original Wednesday. Today I am playing a song from Jim Fusco’s album “What About Today?” called “Pack Your Love” (please visit http://jimfusco.com for more info).
This song is usually played as the back end of two songs in live shows, being preceded by another Jim Fusco-Chris Moore duo-penned song “Where Are We Now?”.
I have always liked this song because it has a great set of lyrics, and the chorus and chord progression are very addictive.
I am also looking forward VERY much to Jim’s upcoming album “Halfway There”. Knowing Jim as long as I have, I know it’s going to be a great work, and I know my future self is already tuning out in the office to the title track.
As always, Laptop Session-a-day continues! I just broke 5k views today in record time! I expect 6k to come even faster! Thank you to everyone who is watching and supporting our series!
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 origianal 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!
I have looked forward to this edition of Original Wednesday for quite some time. I get to world premiere a song from my upcoming album Greenlight.
The song is the first track, and it is called “Shadows Of Your Dreams”. The song is interesting to play on the acoustic guitar because in the recording I do not have a track for acoustic guitar. Therefore, you are watching me play this song for the first time on acoustic since I wrote the song almost a year ago.
I am really looking forward to Sunday! I hope you are planning on purchasing this album in the near future. It essentially is my first solo effort, and I am proud of the end product of nearly a half a year of work.

So upon wandering around during my free time after school today, I looked into the harmless, blue sky and saw pigs flying. I knew what must be done, and I immediately ran home and recorded TWO videos for fecies and chuckles to throw on YouTube, LaptopSessions, and my new site mikefusco.com that actually has a shot of seeing the light of day! I’m so excited about it and it dawned on me that I must get more content of me on the web for your viewing pleasure and listening displeasure. : )
So I’m starting off easy. This is a new song from this past summer called “Do You Have A Sister?” and it sort of described my luck. You go through a terrible relationship, you find (or long ago found) someone who’s perfect for you, and of course they have a boyfriend. And of course he happens to be a close friend. And of course he doesn’t care about her and complains all the time and of course it becomes a huge mess. And it begs the question- “Fine..i get it… you’re taken…do you have a sister?” Though I knew she did, this song has deeper meaning than its upbeat tune implies. Here I have this guy friend telling me how I’m soooo lucky because I don’t have to try and one night at work I got three phone numbers and it made him so mad….meanwhile he’s “Stuck” with this perfect girl that deserved much better. And it made me want to wake both of them up. Her and I would hang out til 6 am in the summer and it was just…a nice escape back to innocence again after a terrible ending to a terrible period in life.
I know fate has a certain role in the world, but I believe it takes into account our ambition and relies on who we are to take us the rest of the way there. So to “Pam”, or anyone else who’s not happy where they find themselves, there’s always still time. Each day is a choice.
and for the love of God…somebody call my iPhone…i just got a new white 3G! =) ciao all.
This edition of the Laptop Sessions is the first installment of what we like to call “Original Wednesday”, where we pick an original tune from someone in the Fusco-Moore Productions galaxy and play it for our Laptop Sessions video podcast series!
This Wednesday edition, I’m playing a Jeff Copperthite song called “Home”, which is for his EP “Greenlight”.
I love this song and so does my mother. It’s a very sincere song and I just can’t get that ending tag out of my head. Even as I write this, I’m trying not to think of it so I won’t get it stuck in there again. I’m desperately holding on to Jeff’s Laptop Session of the Wallflower’s “God Says Nothing Back”.
Anyway, this is a cool song, and just as any musician feels when he hears a cool new song, I wondered how it would sound if I gave it the Jim Fusco treatment! So, I hope you enjoy and I hope the video does Jeff proud. Go check out Jeff’s version of my song, “Harmony”, too!! It’s sure to please.
Acoustic cover songs are what the Laptop Sessions music video blog is all about, but only to a certain extent. The three music artists signed to Fusco-Moore Productions, the production company that hosts the blog, love to listen to new music, particularly from their favorite artists. They love to feature that music and those artists on their music blog. New rock music, alternative music, indie music, and more is available in acoustic guitar music form on the Laptop Sessions free videos site, but the goal of the three artists is not simply to have people listen to their acoustic cover versions. Rather, these songwriters hope that, if you enjoy the covers – they try to record the best cover songs on the web! – then you will also enjoy their original music. Thus, every Wednesday on the video blog is Original Wednesday, a time for the boys of FMP to share unplugged music videos of the songs that they have spent time recording and promoting!
