Welcome to Original Wednesday! It’s Jeff today giving you an original song for our Wednesday edition. It’s our favorite day of the week here.
Today I bring you yet another video from my 2008 album “Greenlight”. The song is the last track of the album and is called “Easy”. Jim was so kind to enlighten me that on Greenlight, I have two songs that are also Barenaked Ladies songs. I think i’ll have to see if they are coverable songs and do them for kicks.
Of the songs I wrote for Greenlight, this was the first one I wrote in 2007, which was 2 years after another song on the album (“$500). It set off a nice set of songwriting for me – probably the best of my life. This song got written in two parts – 1st verse while I was in the old apartment, 2nd verse while in our new condo. It was also the song that convinced Jim that I should consider recording a new album (which happened thankfully – that was a lot of fun).
I only have a few more Original Wednesdays left in the year, and I will be providing you with three all new songs – I PROMISE! And yes, if I can get some more solid songs together, another album in the future is certainly a possibility.
Tomorrow Jim will do his best impression of a Thumpin’ Thursday™®© video. But if it doesn’t have my special characters, then…well, it’s just another video 🙂 (Just kidding Jim – it will be awesome i’m sure!).
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!
