Jim Fusco Reaches 140,000 YouTube Video Views!

I love when these milestones are so close together, as Jeff posted yesterday about his latest YouTube count.  I thought I would follow suit with a similar, albeit shorter, list describing my Top 5 highest viewed Laptop Sessions videos.  I do have a couple of my “How To” videos topping my overall list- the Top 5 Laptop Sessions cover songs videos are as follows:

“I’m So Lonely” (The Beach Boys) – 5968 views

This is exactly what the Laptop Sessions is all about: taking a song that everyone wrote off previously and turning it into an acoustic song.  This way, you get to hear the actual song and, in this case, not the cheesy mid-80s production.

“Do You Want To Know A Secret” (The Beatles) – 4541 views

Can’t explain this one.  I don’t even truly love this song- it’s just one that was a nice song that I thought would translate well on my nylon string guitar.  But, this is one of my oldest videos, so I can only hope that it’s a trend- the longer my videos are online, the faster they’ll get more views!

“Wouldn’t It Be Nice” (The Beach Boys) – 4075 views

You know why this song is in the top three?  Because I can hit the notes.  I don’t mean to sound pretentious, but honestly, that’s what separates my video from every other so-called “cover” on YouTube.  But, then again, that’s what we all try to accomplish on a daily basis here!

“You May Be Right” (Billy Joel) – 3948 views

I can’t believe this one.  I honestly did it because I love the song, but didn’t think it would end up in my top 5!  I think it’s because I turned an electric song acoustic…and that I have a ton of energy in this one.

“Let It Ride” (Bachman Turner Overdrive) – 3968 views

This one’s the most surprising of them all.  The other videos were added six months or more ago.  This one?  Three months.  I think this video’s popularity follows the same logic of “You May Be Right”, as I took an electric song, used an acoustic, and let it ride!

Of course, I look forward to the next milestone, as it’ll be a big one: 150,000!  Congrats to Jeff and we’re both looking forward to Chris’ next YouTube view round number!
