“Winter Wooskie” (Belle & Sebastian Cover)

By Rodrigo Palhano:

Greetings from Brazil.


I’m happy to welcome not only a new band but also a new performer to the best acoustic cover song music blog in the universe.   Today’s Guest Session reaches deep into Belle & Sebastian’s catalog to a b-side on their “Legal Man” single.  When it was released in 2000, it quickly became their highest charting single up to that point, so fans of the band are likely to remember “Winter Wooskie.”

If not, here’s your reminder…

Seeing as how we have no Belle & Sebastian covers here on the Laptop Sessions blog, I probably would have featured Rodrigo’s video if it had been halfway decent.  I was thrilled to find that it was not only decent, but an outstanding performance of this song.  There is a natural reverb effect on his acoustic guitar that adds a beautiful texture to his recording, and his vocal is strong and fitting for the track.

Thus, without further ado, I give you Rodrigo Palhano’s first featured video on the site.  I know I enjoyed it, and I hope you will, too!

This is one in a series of acoustic cover songs, original music, and free mp3 downloads here on the Laptop Sessions Music Video Blog.

  1. I’m just happy to feature a great acoustic cover video! And your timing couldn’t be better, considering the new Belle & Sebastian album that came out this week. I’d love to hear what you think about “Write About Love.”

    Take care and come play again soon! 🙂
