Okay, so they might not be household names, but Jim Fusco’s acoustic cover song music videos have gotten some pretty interesting comments over the years. Here’s an ever-growing list of notable people that have become fans of Jim’s videos:
Geoffrey Cushing-Murray: This late-70’s Beach Boys lyricist wrote “Goin’ South” with Carl Wilson and even “Love Surrounds Me” with Dennis Wilson, which appeared on “L.A. (Light Album)”.
I enjoyed seeing this very much. It’s gratifying to know this song still has a life. Carl and I were very proud of it and hoped it would find an audience over time. Thanks again and good job. Geoffrey Cushing-Murray
Greg Douglass: He wrote the music to the #26 hit “Jungle Love”, made famous by Steve Miller in the late 70’s.
Wow. I co-wrote this tune, and this is impressive. Works well unplugged! Good work, dude…Wrote the music & played guitar on the track, as well as touring with Steve for a few years. Again, cool job. Always fun to see something I’m involved with re-interpreted.
Another milestone for Jim Fusco, founder of the Laptop Sessions, as he reached 900,000 YouTube video videos recently. He has recorded over 225 cover songs and original music videos so far, with more new videos arriving bi-weekly. Jim is excited to reach his goal of a million views on his music videos. For over four years, Jim has given his new take on songs by turning them into acoustic versions. The artists he covers range from the Beach Boys to Jack Johnson and many, many others.
Jim hopes you’ll join him in making the countdown to a million go quickly, so please visit Jim’s YouTube site by clicking HERE!
Folks, I’m proud to announce that I’ve crossed over the half-million mark. Yes, 500,000 YouTube video views on my acoustic cover songs and counting! The popularity of this YouTube series has skyrocketed since I started it all back in late 2007. It feels like so much longer than two years. But, 200 videos, over 730 subscribers, and over a half-million video views later, here we are!
The numbers continue to grow and I can only hope that the next 500,000 (which I’m hoping will come in just half the time as the first half-million) will be comprised of more views from the blog itself and not through searches on YouTube.
Thank you to all my subscribers and everyone that’s helped make the Laptop Sessions such an internet sensation!
Tonight, I just checked my YouTube stats and noticed that I am over 250,000 YouTube video views! This represents a combination of acoustic cover song music videos, how-to videos, and original songs.
I thank everyone for their support. At this rate, I’m on par to reach 500,000 total views by the end of the year- that’s doubling my current total, which took me sixteen months to originally get! Now, I’m looking to double my views in only eight months. And, if our past data shows us anything, it’s that the Laptop Sessions acoustic songs music videos only seem to gain in popularity day after day.
So, here’s to the first quarter-million (wow, that sounds good) and on to the next! It is a life goal to get to 1,000,000 views on YouTube- many people have views in the thousands, tens of thousands, and even hundreds of thousands, but it’s a very small percentage that can get to a million and that’s exactly what I’d expect from myself and the Laptop Sessions over the coming months.
