Acoustic version of the hip hop song “Roll Up” by Wiz Khalifa, experimented with the picture in picture style that seems to be the trend of the century haha.
[Editor’s Note: As we’ve done in the past, we’re bending the rules for this Pat Noonan performance. While it doesn’t strictly adhere to the live performance standard set and followed by the hundreds of acoustic cover song music videos on this site, this arrangement of Wiz Khalifa’s “Roll Up” is unique and even startling for its qualities as an interpretation. And that has always been at the heart of the Laptop Sessions: featuring a performer’s ability to take a song that may be over-produced or lost in layers and break it down to its most basic core.]
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!
