By Jeff Copperthite:
Welcome to your Monday Night Football….er, edition of The Laptop Sessions! It’s the man, myth, and legend Jeff Copperthite tonight with your latest acoustic cover video for the series. I hope this song is familiar to you, because it is a good one.
The song is another one from The Wallflowers called “Some Flowers Bloom Dead” from their album “(Breach)”. I think the album as a whole is one of the most underrated of their albums. It has some really awesome tunes on it and I know that my friend Rory would belt out the tracklisting in order. I’d put down $40 that he could do it. Before session-a-day ends in a mere 4 months and 13 days (almost 2/3 done), I will do another song from this album called “Murder 101” because I think the tune is that good.
You may notice I enjoy covering this band a lot. It has something to do with the fact I haven’t had to filter many (if any) negative comments about ANY of their covers here or on Youtube. Maybe my singing style is similar to Jakob Dylan, or you can tell that I’m a huge fan when you watch me play their tunes. Regardless, I love bringing you more videos of their songs. However, I had to include a little text after my title in the video. I must admit that I was getting a little tired in this recording session. I’m have to sit down and record some videos this week so this doesn’t happen in the future. My guitar playing isn’t as clean as usual, but I was trying my hardest to not ruin another take. I don’t think I’m a perfectionist, but when it comes to recording these videos, sometimes I just have to relax and just play the song.
Terrific Tuesday is next, and Jim Fusco is on deck for that. I hope you checked out his video from Saturday. What a great, great video and great song. You’re really missing out if you haven’t seen it. Here, I’ll even give you the direct link: Ben Folds “Time”.
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 origianal 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!
