By Jeff Copperthite:
Welcome to Thumpin’ Thursday! I’ve returned with a classic band that I’m very used to covering – The Wallflowers!
Fronted by Jakob Dylan, this band has been around for what seems to be nearly 20 years and has always seemed to impress me in the variety of music they have written and recorded. There are songs for nearly every mood you can think of, and I have always been able to put this band on the Ipod (Yeah, i’ve got one now – review will be coming in the next week or two) regardless of my mood.
The song I have selected tonight is called “I’ve Been Delivered” from (Breach). This song is unique in that there is no bridge, and the song follows the unconventional chord progression/pattern of verse chorus rinse repeat. Naturally, like a lot of The Dylan family’s lyrics, the lyrics do not repeat.
I am very close to the 93K mark as of this evening, and I estimate that in two weeks I will tell y0u that I have joined the 6 digit club.
And tomorrow is my wife’s birthday. Only those who know me and her know how old she will be. But I won’t say it here.
Enjoy our latest cover video, and stay tuned for tomorrow’s guest session. I can’t wait to see who it is and what they’re covering!
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!
Nice job on this one, Jeff. Now, I need to reinstate my “no-Wallflowers” policy!
Come on- there’s a ton of bands we haven’t done anything from yet. And there are a ton of bands we’ve only done one song from, like the Rolling Stones.
The Wallflowers? Remember, they had one hit…that wasn’t even a hit…that didn’t even crack the Billboard Hot 100…
Something to keep in mind.
Honestly, though- I really enjoy this video tonight. Very well played and the singing was dead-on.
