By Jeff Copperthite:
Welcome to a fun Friday edition of the Sessions. I’ve got a song going out by request of Ninja Don. And we can all thank him that a new band has arrived to our long list of videos.
Before I write my “official” post, I just want to pause to reflect on what we have accomplished this year. Between the three of us, we have nearly 250,000 views on Youtube, our site visits continue to get more frequent, and all three of us have some notoriety (be it positive or negative) in our respective workplaces, neighborhoods, and with our friends. Between the three of us, we have over 300 videos (perhaps over 400, but over 300 from this year alone) that continue to attract viewers to the site. But as Jim mentioned in a earlier post, I look forward to the time next year when our day to post will be a complete enjoyment, rather than a “I have to get my video up because it’s my day to do so” event.
Well, anyway, I’ve got a song that was a hit in 1985, reaching 6 on the Billboard charts. This song is from a British Pop/Rock band called The Outfield. Their 1985 album was called “Play Deep”, and the song I am covering is called “Your Love”. As mentioned, this song is going out by request, because at some point every morning during 1st Period Prep, Don just has to break this tune out.
I just hope he doesn’t start breaking out MY version instead.
Well, if he did, then that means he likes it.
I’ve mentioned before that I don’t really like to talk politics all that much. I, however, have been following the ongoing discussion that is taking place on Jim’s video from Wednesday. I am not going to offer my thoughts or feelings on it simply because that’s not a good topic of conversation for me. However, that being said, I am very hopeful that the President-elect will live up to his billing – both from him and his supporters.
I hope that you enjoy today’s cover song, and come back tomorrow for Jim’s next awesome cover song – as we continue around turn 4 to the finish line for Session-A-Day ’08!
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!
