You read that right- clearly a new personal best for me and I’m pretty sure a new standard for the rest of the guys here, too.
Every once in a while, I send out a YouTube video to all of my contacts on the site. I’ve decided to stick with sending out an original song from now on. The cover songs kind of promote themselves, but I’m really trying to raise awareness for my original songs, too.
After sending out my video for “Happy Tears” less than 24 hours ago, I received an unprecedented number of views in a one-day span. And I’m talking a new record here: over 300 views on the first day! And, since it’s an original song, it makes me so happy. That means that over 300 great people decided to watch my original song video and take a chance on a song they’ve never heard before.
And that’s what the Laptop Sessions is all about: brining light to those “written-off” songs by doing quality acoustic covers and even originals.
Plus, I got 35 comments in the first 24 hours- a clear record for one day, and officially a new ALL TIME record, as well! That’s right- of all of my all-time videos, Chris’ all-time videos, and Jeff’s all-time videos, this song has the most comments EVER. And that record was broken in one day. And some of these songs have been online for over seven months. And this is an original song- not even a cover song!
Okay, enough boasting for one night- thank you to all who watched “Happy Tears” yesterday and I hope to make this my #1 original song, which I’m it’s close to being already.
