David Cook’s Coronation Song: Prepare For the Deluge

May 22nd, 2008 // 9 Comments

32311.jpg David Cook’s coronation song, “The Time Of My Life,” is up on PopEater now. And it… sounds like a Goo Goo Dolls song. OK, it sounds like a Goo Goo Dolls song with super-treacly lyrics and a keyboard “inspired” by early E Street Band tracks, but that chorus? Talk about plucking an “Iris.” (Maybe this means Johnny Rzeznik is still in Simon Fuller’s good graces? After all, he was actually a decent judge on The Next Great American Band, and Randy is clearly way past his sell-by date…) Anyway, I suspect this song is going to be all over the radio stations playing in your local doctor’s waiting rooms and offices that blare radios playing “the music everyone wants to hear” by, oh, 2 p.m. or so. So why not spend the first pre-caffeine jolt minutes of your day rewatching Cook’s Guitar Hero commercial instead? At the very least, it makes at least one of the reasons why he triumphed over his younger rival very, ahem, clear.

    Oh EEEWW! I’m glad I missed that commercial last night; it was bad enough that D.C. forgot to button his shirt all the way down at the end of the finale.

    Cook appeared in several promotions for the November 1st episode of “Saturday Night Live”, hosted by Ben Affleck. Cook performed two songs on the program, the first “Light On” and the second “Declaration”.caderea parului
