High on David’s list are “Permanent” (“It’s very basic, piano, strings and vocal…There was a lot of crying going on when we listened back to it for the first time…it’s a really heavy song…”), “Bar-ba-Sol (“A real heavy riff-rocker…those kinds of songs are fun…”) and “Mr. Sensitive” (“The first song I wrote after the finale.”) and then, of course, the single “Light On, ” co-written by Chris Cornell.
According to David, Cornell pitched “Light On”:
…And this song actually got pitched to us, which I take as another huge compliment, the fact that he saw something in me with a song of his ¦ just the fact that somebody of his caliber takes the time out of their day not just to mention my name, but to say something nice, it kind of out of this world.
MTV interviewed Cook during the video shoot for his single, “Light On”. The video, directed by Wayne Isham, was shot last Thursday and Friday.
