Oh yeah- welcome to the new and improved Laptop Sessions website! What, you don’t notice a visual difference? Well, great!
The only thing you should notice is how much faster the site is running and will continue to run. Our sitemapt program is chugging away and our site will be running at tip-top shape so we won’t have to turn those short-attention-span visitors away. You know on the Internet crowd only gives you like ten seconds before they get bored and leave. This morning, while we were still on our other server, I waited 26 seconds for the front page to load. Now, at least on my machine, it’s almost instant. And if I want to speed it up even more, I can fully transfer the domain to the new HostGator servers.
On to today’s video!
Chris and I wanted to do this song for so long, but never got a chance until recently. I love this tune, as I do with all the songs off of “Full Moon Fever”, and thought it would be great with that cool chorus riff and the harmonies on the bridge. So, of course, this has quickly become one of my favorite Laptop Sessions acoustic rock cover songs and I hope it’s one of yours, too!
I expect to do most of the songs off of “Full Moon Fever” in the future (except for maybe “Zombie Zoo”) because whenever I hear it, it just sounds like “growing up”. The album came out when I was very little, but we always listened to it in the car alongside the Traveling Wilburys. No “Wheels on the Bus” for us!
And how about Jeff’s video yesterday? Impressive, I must say. His voice was so sweet and it was a really good song, too. I think what I loved about the video the most was the easy-going flow of the song and Jeff’s performance.
You should really check it out! Enjoy the newer, faster Laptop Sessions website, as we continue to bring you an acoustic cover song or original song every single day in 2008 in the quest to solidify our spot as the greatest music video blog of all time!
