That’s right…it’s that time of the 3 week rotation…Jeff presents Thumpin’ Thursday ™®©!!!!
And I shall now cover a song that will have Jim saying “Damnit you had to get this song stuck in my head for the next 3 months!”.
The band, although a short-lived one (but with some success), is Blind Melon, and their very popular song “No Rain” from their self-titled debut album. It is very, very easy to have this song embedded in your humming repertoire for quite some time. The chorus is addicting, simple, and very catchy – the perfect candidate for Thumpin’ Thursday.
I’ve continued to cover some of the old school alternative music from my teenage years. I may have to start breaking out some of the real obscure alternative music I listened too growing up – not to mention the classic rock, folk rock, etc. songs I have lined up for the rest of the year.
That was an awesome Original Wednesday post that I am following. If you haven’t seen it yet, do your eyes and ears a service and check it out. I can’t wait to hear Chris and Jim’s upcoming albums. They will both be on the same playlist for quite some time once both are recorded and released.
Tomorrow Jim will dish out the awesome with another acoustic cover. And in case you thought we were counting, there are 48 videos to go in 2008. We’re almost there!
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 original 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!
