By Jeff Copperthite:
Welcome to your Thumpin’ Thursday installment of The Laptop Sessions (and almost fantastic Friday as well)!
I hope all is well on your end, and that you are celebrating with your family and friends one of the two major religious holidays that are going on at this point in time. I myself have been to two Seders in the past two nights, and i’m done until next year with those.
Tonight I have a great cover song, and to boot, it’s a 2 parter!
The song is “Yes” by Coldplay, and yes it’s another song from their incredibly popular album “Viva La Vida”. I was so excited that when I picked this album up last year, I didn’t even look at the track list. I put it in my CD player and heard each song on the album before I even knew the name of it. This song and the 2nd one that I will cover next week were my favorite. I just liked how it tied together and it’s gentle and “pleading” beat (I couldn’t think of another word to describe it).
I find myself enjoying Coldplay’s library more and more. They do a great job putting music together.
Speaking of people who do a good job putting music together, have you picked up Jim Fusco’s new album Halfway There yet? I’ve only heard previews of some of the songs, and if that is any kind of indication as to the quality of this album, you best hear it and purchase it yourself. I also am looking forward to hearing his remastered version of “What About Today?”, which is an awesome album as well. Jim’s music always pleases.
In the meantime, enjoy this song! See you next week!
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!
