Welcome to your latest version of Original Wednesday. Today I am playing a song from Jim Fusco’s album “What About Today?” called “Pack Your Love” (please visit http://jimfusco.com for more info).

This song is usually played as the back end of two songs in live shows, being preceded by another Jim Fusco-Chris Moore duo-penned song “Where Are We Now?”.

I have always liked this song because it has a great set of lyrics, and the chorus and chord progression are very addictive.

I am also looking forward VERY much to Jim’s upcoming album “Halfway There”. Knowing Jim as long as I have, I know it’s going to be a great work, and I know my future self is already tuning out in the office to the title track.

As always, Laptop Session-a-day continues! I just broke 5k views today in record time! I expect 6k to come even faster! Thank you to everyone who is watching and supporting our series!

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!

I have looked forward to this edition of Original Wednesday for quite some time. I get to world premiere a song from my upcoming album Greenlight.

The song is the first track, and it is called “Shadows Of Your Dreams”. The song is interesting to play on the acoustic guitar because in the recording I do not have a track for acoustic guitar. Therefore, you are watching me play this song for the first time on acoustic since I wrote the song almost a year ago.

I am really looking forward to Sunday! I hope you are planning on purchasing this album in the near future. It essentially is my first solo effort, and I am proud of the end product of nearly a half a year of work.

“Breezy” (Final Fantasy VIII (8) Soundtrack Cover)

And once again, for something totally new in a few ways to the Laptop Sessions – a song from a video game.

Not just any video game, but from my all time favorite series. Final Fantasy has been a mainstay for me for nearly 20 years, and I have always been a fan of all the soundtracks. My MP3 player has nearly every OST song from the games, and they are high in my top 20.

The song I have chose to play is from Final Fantasy 8, and it is called Breezy. Oddly enough, it is also the music that plays when you go to the character Zell’s hometown (and if you notice my name, zell is the first four letters).

It also is one of the few songs that Nobuo Uematsu (was Final Fantasy’s main composer for quite some time) wrote solely for guitar. The rest of the soundtrack is typical to a video game.

Anyway, enjoy this instrumental laptop session. Check out Jim’s Original Wednesday contribution tomorrow as Laptop Session a day is 36/36 in 2008!

Welcome to your fantastic Friday edition of the Laptop Sessions! Today I bring you a fantastic – if short – song from Paul McCartney.

The song is the title track from his 1997 album Flaming Pie, and is a great song. I heard this song (and then, this album) thanks to Jim playing it for a show we did back in 2001.

I hope to learn some more tunes from Paul in the future for more sessions. He really is quite a writer and this is expected given who he is.

I also hope you enjoy this video, and thank you for continuing to watch The Laptop Sessions.

As always, check http://laptopsessions.com/ for more! And, be sure to look for the release of my new EP “Greenlight” on February 24th.
