Hello and welcome to what is a momentous occasion for me… my 100th Laptop Session! That’s — count ’em — one hundred acoustic rock cover songs, recorded after almost nine months of posting every third day. Thus far, Jim is the only one of us to reach the 100 mark and Jeff can’t be too far behind me, so this is definitely an exciting time for us here at the music blog.
I wanted to make today’s session a great one, so I decided to go barenaked. Barenaked Ladies, that is! As I explained in my previous post, I love the Steven Page-sung track from Born on a Pirate Ship called “Break Your Heart.” It’s quite the emotional tune and is certainly characterized (and highlighted!) by a classic Steven Page lead vocal. I almost felt silly even attempting this song, considering that it is not exactly in my range, but I wanted to set the bar high for my next hundred videos. By this time next year, I would love to have 100 more songs recorded, and have many of them be more ambitious, more perfected, and overall more exciting than even the first hundred.
I mean, don’t get me wrong; it’s been a crazy ride thus far. But still, I’m excited to improve and increase the popularity of the blog. It would be nice to know that people were actually reading these blog posts; it would certainly make me want to write longer, more interesting and informative entries.
Before I leave you to the video, I need to share one last tidbit from my day. I hadn’t downloaded all the free music at Fusco-Moore.com/Store, so I took a little trip on over and “purchased” all that free material. If you’re a Laptop Sessions fan in the least, then this is a must-have — we have eight volumes worth of acoustic rock covers, not to mention live shows.
Well, that’s it for me tonight — Aside from the fact that I’m nodding off as we speak and wondering when Jim will notice that I’ve completely slumped over on my laptop, I’m going to let my video speak for itself. Stay tuned for another cover from Jeff tomorrow and another from Jim the following day. And, guess what? I’ll be back on the third day for yet another acoustic cover song on the best cover music blog in the universe!
See you next session!
