Yes, the Laptop Sessions acoustic cover songs blog always comes out with new material, but you'll also want to check out our extensive archive of past posts. We have literally hundreds of great acoustic cover videos here on the blog. And, a great cover video is just as good today as it was a year ago. You could spend DAYS watching great cover song videos through our extensive archives!
During your search, make sure to watch out for specialty weeks of our cover videos, including "New Bands Week" and "Number Ones Week", where we played a full seven days of songs that hit Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. These weeks allowed the members of the Laptop Sessions to expand their horizons and play cover songs that they normally wouldn't have thought of. It's amazing how difficult it is to find a Number One song from the past twenty years that we actually like, much less would want to play as an acoustic cover.
Through these archives, you'll find our talent by how we turned many over-produced songs into acoustic versions. Eighties songs especially benefited from our efforts because they tended to have electronic sounds that make the songs sound very dated now. Our acoustic treatment to these cover songs showcases them as just "songs" and not "recordings". If a song's truly great, it'll stand up to our bare-bones acoustic style. But, even well-produced songs, like those from the Beach Boys and the Beatles, do well as acoustic versions here on the Laptop Sessions music video series. When we do an acoustic cover of one of these songs, say stripping-away layered harmonies, you can still hear how great the song is on its own. It's a unique take on all these classic songs- hear your favorites with a fresh sound! That's what we promise here on the Laptop Sessions Blog: great acoustic cover songs, superb video performances, and great music articles to tie it all together.
