“The Fixer”
Pearl Jam

INTRO:  (B – D – G – E) x3
B – D

G

Em                         D                  Bm               G
When something’s dark, lemme shed a little light on it
When something’s cold, lemme put a little fire on it
If something’s old, I wanna put a bit of shine on it
When something’s gone, I wanna fight to get it back again

Em     D                                                         G
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah — fight to get it back again.
Em     D
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah.

When something’s broke, I wanna put a bit of fixing on it
If something’s bored, I wanna put a little exciting on it
When something’s low, I wanna put a little high on it
When something’s lost, I wanna fight to get it back again

Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah — fight to get it back again.
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah.

When signals cross, I wanna put a little straight on it
If there’s no love…  I wanna try to love again.

C                Eb                              Bm
I’ll say your prayers; I’ll take your side.
Bm              A
I’ll find us a way to make light.
I’ll dig your grave; we’ll dance and sing.
What say, could be our last lifetime!

(Repeat INTRO)

Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah — fight to get it back again.
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah — fight to get it back again.
Yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah.

Yeah, yeah.   Fight to get it back again…   (yeah’s & fadeout)

“Wishlist”
Pearl Jam

C                                                   F                        C
I wish I was a neutron bomb – for once, I could go off.
I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on.
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree… I wish I was the star that went on top…

C  F                   C                F                     C
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
C    F                 C                            G                        F
For fifty million hands upraised and open toward the sky

I wish I was a silhouette – someone who waited for me.
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me…

I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good.
I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro’s hood.

SOLO:   G – F – C  /  G – F – C  /  G – F – C

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun.
I wish I was a souvenir you kept your house key on…

I wish I was the pedal brakes that you depended on.
I wish I was the verb “to trust” and never let you down.

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up.
I wish I was…

“Better Man” (Pearl Jam Cover)

By Jeff Copperthite:

Good evening to you all! It’s Jeff Copperthite returning for another Saturday night fever edition of The Laptop Sessions! I’m back to school this week, and i’m sure if you are a student, or have children who are students, I feel your pain. Except mine is the “I have to get back into teaching mode” pain.

However, session-a-day must go on! We are nearing September, which means 2/3 of the year is nearly complete since we started this project. And not a day goes by that Jim, Chris, and myself mutter under our breath “What was Chris thinking?”.

But it will all be worth it – it already all is. That’s because you’re reading this, and have enjoyed nearly 200 videos from the four of us. I also want to thank Mike for jumping in with an awesome original song on Wednesday. Given that I haven’t been doing much writing lately, and Mike had expressed a lot of interest in doing an original, it was the natural thing to do.

Today’s song is one from Pearl Jam – a band that we have seen before on the sessions. I am covering another song from their album “Vitalogy” called “Better Man”. It starts out soft and gets much stronger and emphasized in the last part. This song received (and still does receive) much airplay on the radio.

I don’t feel this is my strongest performance, but it works much better than I thought it did while recording. Note to future artists – never eat a pack of Nutter Butters before recording a video. You’ll have to cancel it out with 1/2 a Gatorade and a Vitamin Water (“Water sucks – Gatorade is better”, to quote the Waterboy).

Anyway, enjoy this latest entry, and check back for your Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! edition with Jimnelious…er, Jim Fusco!

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!
