Hey HEY! Welcome to your Sunday, Sunday, Sunday fix of The Laptop Sessions with me, Jim Fusco! Am I the only one excited to still bring you these on a daily basis? Sure, it’s a pain, but so is seeing your in-laws…and I’m sure everyone does that more often than they’d like to.
Tonight, I bring you a song that I simply LOVE. That kinda fits because Ringo Starr is all about peace, love, and understanding. He’s a cool dude, and even though he didn’t write this song, I still love it. This was from Ringo’s first “comeback” album, “Time Takes Time”, one of my favorites growing up in the early 90s. This is the first album he did with the Roundheads and the sounds is just so classic to me.
This album is the last one before he started to write almost every song. If you’ve been to the music blog before, you know that I’m a HUGE fan of people writing their own songs. But, Ringo did know how to pick some great ones including “Weight of the World”, which I’ll also be doing as a cover song at some point here on the best video blog online!
This song has a great tune, a great message, and a good beat. Sounds like a great song to me! Plus, I get to sing like Ringo, which is always so much fun. Don’t worry, I didn’t do an impersonation, though! I hope you enjoy tonight’s video as we look towards the unofficial last day of summer tomorrow, fitting that we have a teacher posting tomorrow- one, Chris Moore!!
