Tonight’s video blog entry is from yet another “new” band to the Laptop Sessions: The Grass Roots.
Chris and I have loved this song since my mini-obsession with it back in mid-high school. For some reason, we equated someone I had a crush on to this song. It was when I was first learning piano and learned how to play this song, which I was pretty impressed with.
I actually got to see the Grass Roots in concert a few years ago at the North Haven Fair here in CT. Actually, I’ve seen a lot of great bands there, including America and Herman’s Hermits. I always love getting to see a show there- you get to see some great acts and it’s just part of the general admission. During my schooling years, the North Haven Fair was truly the only good thing about September.
This song, “Temptation Eyes”, is a bit “campy”, but I still love it and think it’s got a great tune. It’s always a candidate for getting stuck in my head at a moment’s notice.
I hope you enjoy tonight’s Laptop Session here on the Fusco-Moore Productions music video blog. We’re happy to have all of you new fans here to listen to us! Also, if you have an iPhone (like Chris and I sport), you’ll be happy to know that all of our videos will play on it! Before, there was no option to play videos from the Laptop Sessions page. But now, it shows a still of the video and a play button over it. Tap the play button and the YouTube player will come up, letting you watch the video. Plus, if you add us to your iPhone web clip home screen, you’ll see our great new Laptop Sessions iPhone logo!
