Chris, Jim, and I are part of an internet radio station called WCJM.com Free Internet Radio, and one of the shows that we did (but currently can’t find) was called the “Get Well Mike” show, because at the time Jim’s brother Mike was sick and we wanted to lift his spirits (this is before the “Ronco automatic face lifter” came into existence) (Note: the preceding joke would only be fully understood by 6 people on this planet – 2 of them write on this blog as well).
Well, the first song on the show was this one, and thus my introduction to this song.
It is a personal favorite of mine, and has helped make the Wallflowers one of my favorite bands. I figured because of this that this song would be the perfect introduction for me into FMP’s “Laptop Sessions” as well.
I think I do the song justice. I had the lyrics on the laptop just in case, but I didn’t need ’em.
This also marks my introduction into video making and on to youtube as well, so if you like it (or hate it), let me know!
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!
Let me say with absolute certainty that this is awesome!! Chris, Cliff, and I all agree. You’re in great voice, the guitar playing is spot on, and of course, a great song selection. Well done and cheers to your first Laptop Session. I think you’ll be amazed at how much (of a great) response you get!!
Viva los Sessiones de Laptops! (or whatever the word for “laptop” is in Spanish)
This is one of my favorite Wallflowers songs (or maybe songs in general), and I have to thank you for bringing it to the Laptop Sessions. What a great choice and a great performance!
I’ve been trying to decide which Jakob Dylan song I want to try first for my own Laptop Sessions contribution…
