Default David Cook sings Little Lies

American Idol winner David Cook sang a rocked out version of "Little Lies" at his CD release tonight. He changes the words a little bit, but I thought it was pretty good! Fun to hear a different take on the song. I have to admit, this is not a song I would have guessed he'd do in concert, but I'm excited he did! I told him so as well! Haha.

I really like it too. He was really good at tweaking existing songs during the AI run. Guess it's his natural affinity for music.

Cool cover.

I like the rawness of it.

I am also thrilled that CM gets some pocket change and an introduction to that fan base!

Barf-worthy. Guitar parts are horrid.

Normally I like it when a Christine song gets a muscular, garage-band treatment. But what a stiff this guy is. He has no stage presence whatsoever. The way he hides his face with his hands over the mike is pathetic. Did you say he's an American Idol winner? Man, am I glad I don't watch that show.

I don't so much mind the guitar playing. Like I said, I enjoy a twist like this on a Chris song. But the band needs a different vocalist, and fast.

I do give him credit for good taste, however.

I hated him on Idol. I wanted Michael Johns to win.

And I still do.
And he ruined this song.
He fails.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I haven't even heard it yet. But could it be worse than Michael Johns' "Go Your Own Way"? I still can't believe Archuleta didn't win (oh don't get me started).

ETA: Now that I've heard it... YUCK! This guy is to music what anti-matter is to matter.

David Cook always looks greasy and unwashed. His three pre-Idol albums stink. His success on Idol was mostly due to arrangements he stole from other musicians and passed off as his own. That, and he used his sick brother to pull the sympathy vote.

That poor little kid who gasps every time he speaks had a better singing voice.

This is the article I wrote the day of the finale, before the winner was announced:

but really... don't get me started on American Idol.

Archuleta's impish quivering lip made me want to smack him - OFTEN!!!!!!!!

As for Cook - he has a killer voice. He is just not very original or varied.

Sad really.

Yea - that was the rumour.

To be fair - Archuleta has one helluva voice. I just thought he was young and had no presence to raise above mediocrity.

Well, the arrangement isnt the best...but i guess the audience is digging it! just goes on to show what a timeless classic 'LL' is.

i like cook's voice. very raw, he can hit some high notes. archuleta's too soapy for me.
