“Closer To Free” (The BoDeans Cover)

By Jeff Copperthite:

Welcome to the 2nd part of a double dose with me!  Here’s your new band entry for tonight – think of this as your delayed “Thumpin’ Thursday” – as this was the tune I was looking to have this tune for this past Thursday.

Today’s song is a popular one called “Closer To Free”.  I used to confuse this tune with the theme from Friends for some reason, although those two songs are quite different.  After I wrote that sentence, I realized that it WAS a theme to another show called “Party of Five”.  It’s very upbeat with a standard and easy chord progression.  It’s also easily recognizable and great to play at gatherings.

I recorded this in the same session as yesterday’s tune, so again the same voice problem is still lingering a bit.  Another “caution” title screen was added, but hopefully for Wednesday I won’t have to add one.

Sorry for the terse post, but be sure you check back tomorrow for another video by none other than Chris “Like-the-entire-Dylan-library-in-your-face-Good” Moore!

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!
