newsvine - don't you forget about david cook: american idol season 10 farewell song revealed  

I'm sure the lot of you have flailed today, lost your ovaries, screamed to the top of your lungs in excitement and like me, burned down a building and walked away only to hope freeze frame applies in real life and give the best goshdang fist pump in the world!

David Cook is back friends. He's back and better than ever. I was texting with Em aka [livejournal.com profile] storminmay earlier today and we both mutually love the flailing and the honest fact that his music has the power to bring all of us together and create this bond. It's adorable. I love it! I had the chance today without even realizing it to write a little something over at my Newsvine column. Be sure to check it out and let me know what you think of the Simple Minds' cover David's created.

Don't You Forget About David Cook: American Idol Season 10 Farewell Song Revealed

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.

Thanks, Elizabeth! I'm excited for his new stuff too. It's bound to be amazing! He's been working so hard, I do know it'll be something worthwhile... unless he decided to rework and remix Barney's "I Love You" tune. :\

Lovely write up as always.

I've been so annoyed lately because I hear people say Idol has only turned out two winners who achieved any lasting success. I respect that he took his time to make sure this new material wasn't crap to him. And now, the Simple Minds song sounds awesome!

Thanks so much, Amanda! <3

The Simple Minds cover is pretty amazing! I love his tone in it and how he kept it the same but with his own spin and signature. That's really what makes any David Cook tune a classic. I'm really totally stoked for the new album and I hope it comes out soon. Somewhere I read they said, spring and then I heard from a friend, July which means summer so I don't know...but I do know I want it!!! *grabby hands* :D
