[quote=GoldDustOrphan;784885]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.[/

Totally hate the guitar parts.

Kudos on the song choice but I think he loses a lot of the essence of the song.

He fails.
He fails, but you wanted the guy who turned out one of the most boring versions of GYOW ever to win?

IMO he had the best stage presence and voices of the seasons. [Johns]

Yet he did suck at GOYW.

But not as much as Cook sucks at Little Lies

Norah's cover is nice. It was a good idea to put in an instrumental break after the first chorus.

I like the "Little Lies" cover. I think it's nice as an acoustic folk song. It really brings out the emotion of the song.

The Shoreline EP is from 2005. It has some other great cover songs as well. Details here:

Nora O'Connor's album is also well worth a listen - a nice mix of covers and original songs.

I'd never seen this. More interesting is that Kris Allen and Adam Lambert sing it with him.
Cook obviously loves Fleetwood Mac. He and Carrie Underwood performed "Go Your Own Way" during the Idol Experience launch in Florida.

This is BRILLIANT! I always liked David Cook from his first week on American Idol and his album is great. He has such a fantastic voice and always comes up with arrangements that are just different enough. Little Lies works so well as a guitar driven power pop tune rather than the keyboard based original version (which I of course love!) I really like Adam Lambert too but him and Kris Allen were a bit redundant on this.

His version of Mariah Carey's Always Be My Baby and Lionel Richie's Hello were excellent too.

This is why I love this messageboard. Living in the UK I wouldn't have seen this or heard of it at all!

Oh dear God, are you people crazy?? This was AWEFUL!!! David Cook sings like he's pushing out a particularly large bowel movement, and Adam Lambert is no Stevie Nicks!! I do love Tango being introduced to a new generation, but this version is just blasphemy!!!

I dig it. Like someone mentioned on youtube, I wouldn't mind seeing more Adam and less Kris.
