Welcome, welcome to another edition of “You Bet Your Life”…oh wait, that’s Groucho Marx. This here is another edition of the Laptop Sessions with me, Jim Fusco!
I don’t care what anyone says- I’m actually a big fan of my newest song, “Winning You Over”. I know the subject matter is up for debate, but if you just listen to it as a song: the tune and the way the lyrics are written, even the chord progression- I think you’ll find that it’s pretty awesome. Not to toot my own horn- I just can’t get the stinkin’ song out of my head!
I’d love to hear Jeff’s thoughts on the song- both in subject matter and how he likes the real tune. This is a great chance to make sure Jeff is still paying attention to these posts! 🙂
Anyway, tonight I bring you a great and classic song by The Turtles, whom we haven’t covered yet here on the Laptop Sessions. That’s the way it goes: another night, another “new” band to the Laptop Sessions acoustic cover songs music video blog from me, Jim Fusco!
Of course, I put “new” in quotations because the band was popular back in the sixties, so even though we haven’t done a cover song from them before, it’s still technically not a “new” band by any stretch of the imagination!
I couldn’t believe how well the opening guitar part came out- doesn’t it sound exactly like the original?
Well, I actually have a little game for you. On my solo radio show (So-low that you can’t hear me? That’s for Stuffy D. Bear) Jammin’ with Jim on WCJM Free Internet Radio, I’m “famous” for my twin-spins, which are two songs played by the same artist. I even did an entire show of twin-spins…twice!
Well, Tuesday, I’ll be doing a second song from the Turtles. To tell you the truth, I didn’t even realize that I was doing two songs by them until after I recorded the music videos! I recorded both songs and went, “Huh- they’re both from the Turtles!” So, I have a nice twin-spin setup for you. Can you guess which song it’ll be? BIG points to the winner of this competition. Again, this will be a good litmus test to tell if Jeff is still reading these posts!
Okay- it’s been a long day and I can’t wait to kick back and relax to yet another Chris Moore acoustic cover song music video tomorrow. I’m sure he’ll do Sunday proud.
Loved it! and right after I listened to this, I heard the song in an LG commercial—they should’ve used your version :o)
