David Cook- The Last Song I’ll Write For You
Do you all remember when I made music videos and those infamous mash-ups? And do you all remember when American Idol Season 7 was the best season ever? And do you all remember that this “cult-hit” that actually became a “cult-hit” was created the week I had food poisoning and was pooping my brains out? And do you all remember how bizarre yet oddly funny it was? And do you remember how many of you I become friends with and we become so close and I love you till this day, always and forever?
Those were the days. I never knew this would go viral and well, that was definitely good times! I was just making it for fun and never expected it to go this far. I can’t believe it’s got like, so many views! And the fact that I hear stories that while waiting for the concerts that summer to start, some of you would watch the videos on your phone or iTouch and it made you laugh! That’s special and humbling in its own right. And then later on, I hear news that the Top 10 Idols actually watched it when they were on tour makes it pretty special! <3
And FYI: for the haters out there (because there were a few of you), the opening segment in Part 1 was actually enjoyed by every single member on that tour. I heard it straight from Carly’s mouth to my ears and she told me that they would quote parts on the tour! So yeah, it’s all jokey-jokey, taken with a grain of salt.
The one thing that really stands out from making those mash-ups were definitely the friendships I made along the way and I still hold dear to this day. Never knew I would come across so many of you and create a real connection and a tight bond. I love you, guys…you all know who you are! <3
OMG. David Cook talking to his nephew is by far the cutest thing ever! Look at the way he’s looking at him and talking and awww, look! SO CUTE. Cutest thing ever!
I need to have babies! I’m not getting any younger. I want to have children and I want to be a mom! Sophia and Joseph Roland won’t be born without me!

DAVID COOK - FADE INTO ME OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO
I love ‘a day in the life’ type of videos like this! Beautifully shot and great use of live footage.
Flawlessssssssss humannnnnnnnn alleeerrtttttt. Fjdjsjtyjskdh I love this stupid person so much.
WHAT!? How is he even real?! Love himmmmmmm!
If there’s one thing I’ve noticed with songwriters and I admire most, it’s the courage they have to strip themselves down; exposing their thoughts and feelings to a capricious world while diving into a deep unknown abyss just to know that someone along the way understands that very meaning they’re trying to articulate. Deep, well-thought songs don’t come from the surface. They come from deep down with an open heart and mind that allows for poetry, melody and passion to permeate through.
An artist who never fails to wear his heart on his sleeve is David Cook, the past winner of the FOX reality show, American Idol but don’t peg him into the Idol cliché. Cook is one of the rare winners along with Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson who’s able to stand on his own two feet and found success over the years by laying his heart on the line. Lyrically and vocally, Cook is impressive and by far one of the finest musicians emerging today. It’s been about two and a half years since his platinum-selling self-titled album debuted and the wait has been worth it.
So, I know you’ve all probably dreamed about it: a duet between the cutest, sexiest, talented and sweetest American Idol contestants to ever grace our lives, Michael Johns and David Cook. As we all lovingly know them, MAVID.
I was mixing some drinks today and thought, meh why not mix some songs? I have the software, might as well try it out and you guys wanted a mashup from me for ages since the AI7 Mashup Trilogy ended…
I’m going to stop talking and give you the creation!! I hope you all like it! It took me a while to make. Let me know your thoughts! :)
Excerpt from Newsvine:
During the week of March 8 on American Idol, David Cook, the winner of the popular reality competition’s seventh season returns with a musical treat. His latest song, a cover of the 1985 hit by Simple Minds, “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” will make its debut next week as this year’s send-off track for the departing contestants of the show’s tenth season.
This is a big surprise for all of his fans as they’ve waited eagerly for new music from the multi-platinum seller since his successful self-titled debut album back in 2008, selling more than 1.4 million copies along with his American Idol coronation single, “The Time of my Life” becoming the highest-selling in the show’s history.
Cook’s cover of the timeless classic, “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” made popular by the John Hughes film, The Breakfast Club, was recorded back in February and selected by Idol creator and executive producer Simon Fuller. In some aspects, it will be awful for the contestants to hear on stage but rock the socks off for his fans sitting on their couches at home.
David Cook - Don’t You (Forget About Me)
I’m Jumpin’ Jack Flash, it’s a gas! Gas! Gas!
David Cook is awesomesauce and I love his new haircut. And I love that he’s going to Africa for Idol Gives Backand will be shedding a light on the dire situation; it’s commendable and the work he always dives into and pours his heart out for is always so inspiring.
Since the first time I’ve heard this song, I’ve always felt it’s had such a beautiful hope to it even if there’s uncertainty looming in such a relationship. The whole walking backwards signifies this sort of longing for the time things were right with someone of great love and affection for. We fixate on the past in hopes that things can change and it’s hard to move forward but no matter how much it hurts, you have to go forth with or without the past — I love how this video illustrates that.
I love how there’s a patience proved in love. And a sort of trust that plays a part in their love story. I still cry listening to this song but it’s happy tears because if you love someone with your whole heart, you’d know to let them go discover who they are and if they come back to you, it was meant to be and if they don’t, at least you’ve loved with your whole heart.
One of my favourite David Cook songs. Hands down.
