By Jeff Copperthite:
Welcome to the final month of The Laptop Sessions session per day project! Today I kick it off with a great cover from something most of our fans have never heard of.
Waaaay back in January, I did an acoustic guitar cover of a song from the video game Final Fantasy 8, and the reception was nice from users who have heard it (although I admit, it wasn’t played PERFECTLY). Well, today I bring you another cover from a song in a video game. This time, the game is Chrono Cross, a game from 2000. The game itself is one of the best of all time, so if you’re a role playing game player and have not played it, check it out.
I bring this song to you for 3 reasons.
1) I’ve been playing the Chrono Trigger DS port since I got it on Saturday, and have had both playlists on my Winamp for a few days now.
2) I’ve been meaning to do another instrumental cover from a video game, so this provided me the perfect combination with reason #1.
3) I called in sick to work today because yesterday I had a sore throat, and lo-and-behold, my voice was not up to singing today. Therefore, an instrumental is just what the doctor ordered.
The song is called “Dimension Breach”. It is played just after the main character Serge, crosses into the space between dimensions – one of which is his “home”, and another dimension in which he had passed on 10 years ago. The tune fits the mood of the game at that point in the story.
On Thursday I will be back for the first of 10 videos that I will be recording to close out my portion of session-per-day. I as well am looking forward to hearing the 10th anniversery show that we here at laptopsessions.com recorded along w/ the other 3 cast members of WCJM this past Saturday. I hope you do too – we laughed a lot as well.
Tomorrow Jim will be back for his terrific Tuesday cover. Don’t miss it!
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 origianal 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!
