It's an incredibly busy time of year for us here at Songs For Jake, and so we're going to be stepping back from the project for a little bit to recollect and revamp. We'll be back though, so keep those videos coming!
We are crushed over here at Songs For Jake to hear of Tom Petty's passing today. As many of you know who have been following along for the last 4+ years, he's Jake's absolute favorite artist. We, as well as many of our friends have covered many of his songs since the beginning of the project, and he'll continue to a staple of our music channel.
On a personal note, I wanted to share one of my favorites. I believe the year I turned 12, I got a trampoline for my birthday. Because of the school calendar, my birthday fell on President's Day, which mean I had the day off, and you know where I spent it? On my trampoline, blaring Tom Petty in the backyard, literally doing back flips and reveling in singing about 'joints', because I could tell it embarrassed my mom. ;)
We'll miss you, Tom. - Sami
We hope you had a great weekend! Today, Bradley Weaver is covering the Lead Belly song "In the Pines". You'll probably remember it from Nirvana's MTV Unplugged performances back in the 90s. We hope you enjoy!
