“Give” (Dishwalla Cover)

By Jeff Copperthite:

What a great week this has been doing “New Bands Week”. To close it out, I have an obscure song that i’m not sure many will recognize.

The band I have dug out from the archives is Dishwalla, and their single “Give” from their debut album Pet Your Friends. You may recognize the band name from their single “Counting Blue Cars”. This was also a single, but received little airplay.

The song has a weird organ solo at the end that I didn’t attempt to play backing chords too, so I simply ended the song with the last line “What would you give?”. There are a few songs from this band that I know how to play, so you may see them again in the future.

Be sure to check out http://jimfusco.com tomorrow for my new album Greenlight. Jim has been hard at work getting everything all set for its release, and I can’t wait to give you an opportunity to hear it! Until then, enjoy today’s Laptop Session and check back tomorrow for that and a brand new session from the Fuscinator himself.

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!
