“Emaline” (Ben Folds Five Cover)

By Jeff Copperthite:

My 2nd installment for fusco-moore.com’s “Laptop Sessions”. This time we’ll get a bit more obscure.

This song is from Ben Folds Five, and was a song that was intended for their album “Whatever and Ever Amen” – a great album – but Ben Folds decided to not put this song on because it had guitar, and would take away from the piano-rock theme they were trying to promote.

This is such a great song, and I love hearing it at his shows. I hope you enjoy it as well.

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!

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

  1. Another great choice, Jeff! Considering Ben Folds’ typical distaste for guitar in his recordings, this is an excellent choice for the Laptop Sessions.
