It’s been a lot of fun this week to see what bands Jim and Jeff are choosing to do. If you haven’t heard, we decided this weekend that this week will be “New Band Week” at Laptop Sessions.com. Each day this week, we will be posting songs by artists that have yet to be covered by us.
My selection today, “Hey Julie,” is from Fountains of Wayne’s 2003 album Welcome Interstate Managers. I liked their previous albums, but this one is by far their best effort. Although it’s a very simple song, “Hey Julie” is one of my favorite tracks, and I thought it would be a perfect fit for the Laptop Sessions because it’s acoustic-based and incorporates harmonica.
Be sure to visit the site tomorrow because Jeff’s “Original Wednesday” selection will be a world-premiere performance of one of the songs from his soon-to-be-released album, Greenlight!!
