Because this is the internet and you are all total strangers, I am going to admit something that I probably wouldn’t admit to my friends. Actually I probably would, but I would be prepared to be laughed at, made fun of, and well, laughed at some more. It’s ok though, I tend to set myself up for ridicule in these situations. Here goes: I am slightly obsessed with David Cook. (sigh)
And American Idol has been consuming my life for the past several months. Ok, not really, but I did DVR it and watched every episode religiously. My cousin did as well, so the morning after each show we would hold in-depth phone conferences about the previous night. Who we loved, who sucked, who would go home.
David Cook was my early favorite, and he just kept getting better and better. He is the first contestant on the show ever who’s album I would actually buy. I have really liked some of the others as contestants, but I wouldn’t exactly be rushing out to buy a Clay Aiken album.
I have to admit, though I thought he wholeheartedly deserved it, I was shocked that David Cook won. I figured the little tween girl population would be voting over and over for 4 hours for 17-year-old David A, but America came through and picked the best man to win.
So what is the point of all this you ask? In my obsessive stalking internet surfing yesterday, I came upon this:
Dude already released an album. Ohmygodineedit. So I kicked my internet stalking abilities into high gear and was able to find a website to download the album. Here’s the thing. Apparently it was available for download from iTunes and Amazon mp3, but was pulled from both sites as his popularity grew on American Idol (lame if you ask me). So I had to track it down by other means…mwaaahaaahaaa!
Let me just tell you this. I am listening to it right now and it is a-maz-ing. I kid you not, it is the best album I have heard in a long time. So with that, I am going to leave you with one of my favorite tracks, Silver.
Update: I have no idea if the above track is working. I have just spent the past hour trying to get it to work and I’m frustrated, so I apologize if it doesn’t work and I will try again later.
