David Reed and Justin Hamilton of Airplanes cover Sam Cooke’s beautiful 1964 track ”A Change is Gonna Come.” (Shot in Dallas — 5/30/2011.)
[Editor’s Note: This is an interesting twist in the usual format of our Laptop Sessions. First of all, this video isn’t being hosted on YouTube, and second, this is a two-man combo (increasingly rare here recently). One beautifully subtle electric guitar and one passionate lead vocal make for the perfect cover song. Enjoy — I know I did!]
This season includes nine episodes and a wide range of talent — by far, the best series of Guest Sessions ever released heretofore on the Laptop Sessions blog. Performers range from individuals in their bedrooms to full bands performing. The artists being covered run the gamut as well: from Elvis Costello to Wiz Khalifa, and Sam Cooke to Phish. For the first time ever in Laptop Sessions history, we will feature an acoustic cover song music video performed in a different language.
PLUS: We’re still waiting for the perfect video for our December 30th season finale, so keep those acoustic cover song music video submissions coming. This is your opportunity to be featured on the LS blog! (Click on the “Guest Sessions” box in the upper right hand corner of the Laptop Sessions homepage for details.)
All this and more will be coming to you every other Friday for the rest of the year, so check back and check back often:
You won’t want to miss even one episode of the Fall 2011 season of the Guest Sessions cover song music video series!
