“Don’t Worry” (Goo Goo Dolls Cover)

By Jeff:

Welcome to Thumpin’ Thursday!  I hope that you’re enjoying this final full week of August.  At least one of us is.

I’m definitely going to be having some issues letting go of summer.  I have enjoyed it a lot and have made the most of it.  Vacation was great.  This year, as mentioned already last week, will be a busy one for sure!

But you’ve already heard about that.  How about today’s session!

This week I bring you another Goo Goo Dolls song, but it’s a throwback.  It is not the humorous one I mentioned last month when I posted another Goo Goo Dolls song, but it is from an album that came out before they were considered mainstream.  The song is “Don’t Worry” (and no, it has nothing to do with Bobby Ferrin) from their 1991 album “Superstar Car Wash”.  It is the shortest song on the album, and there are about 3 other songs that may make future sessions from this album alone.

When I was in high school and using that BMG membership to the fullest, I used the opportunity to fill out my collection from this band.  I did get to meet them after a concert (but sadly didn’t get any autographs – just shook Robby’s hand), and they remain the only live band i’ve seen more than once in concert.  This particular album was perfect for me to listen to on the weekends when I had to mow the lawn.  In my own weird analytical constantly relating stuff together mind, the length of this album was near the exact amount of time it took to mow the front and back yard.  I’d be hearing the final track, and then turning the mower off and putting it back in the shed.

But this song is another that features Robby Takac.  It’s 3 in a row for me of GGD covers that are songs written by Takac.  I promise the next one will be another Johnny tune.

Next week will be the first post where i’ll have been in school before posting.  Too bad I should’ve done this song in June since one of the lyrics is “smells like summer is on the way”.  Well unfortunately, it’s on the way out.

But as mentioned, lots to look forward too!  We’re charging through 2009 like mad.  Only 3 months until we have to change 2 of the digits in the year! (and thank Dark Ixion for that – no more of those stupid glasses people wear that have the year on them) (ok, perhaps a pirate is good for the next 90 years…).

So enjoy tonight’s session, and I’ll see you next week!

Oh, and I promise more regular Twitter updates.  But start following!


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!

This is one in a series of acoustic cover songs, original music, and free mp3 downloads here on the Laptop Sessions Music Video Blog.
