Game of Thrones Episode 2: The Lost Lords Review

So what do you think? What could it be? Something for Idol?

The Hollywood boot song? (Ferras’ “Hollywood’s Not America” was the boot song for Hollywood week). Or, maybe the Top 12 boot song, but we’ll get to hear it a little early? Or maybe David is recording music for a commercial?

WHAT DO YOU THINK??!!!??!!

UPDATE!!! CLARIFICATION!!!

So, we won’t hear it this week week, but the WEEK AFTER.

  1. It seems to be a bit early for the boot song. But with all these idol changes, who knows?
    My mind totally went to idol right away, but maybe it’s not even idol related. lol

    I am thinking it’s a cover song though. If it was original maybe he’d mention, huh?

    But I am excited!

  2. LMAO! I can’t believe this got its own thread.

    That said, I got nothing. Maybe the Hollywood boot song would make sense.

  3. I think it’s early for the boot song, and it’s usually a song that’s already been released. My guess is that he’s done a voiceover for a Ford commercial, or for a coming attractions commercial for Idol.

  4. I would LOVE for David to have the boot song. I can’t wait for his album to come out and if he has the boot song that would be such an awesome promotion to get Idol fans thinking about why they loved him. I’m gonna cross my fingers and toes for the boot song until I find out differently. :)

    No, no, no – don’t say that! It’s gotta be some kind of music!

    Did I mention that I’m moderately to severely stoked? :-)

  6. I going to wildly speculate with absolutely no proof, idea, inside information or anything that David will sing the David Hodges song “Hard To Believe” as the boot song or maybe the Hollywood Boot song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0eah_GOnYc It fits. LOL

    full disclosure I have no idea but I like my idea it is fun :)

  7. HA a friend on Twitter suggested a song for a Ford commercial! I think it has to be connected to Idol somehow or maybe something sports related? His music has a good history with sports..

  8. If it’s for this week, maybe it’s for the green mile reveal of the Top 24 or however many there’s going to be this year. I would rather it was unrelated to Idol, & since it seems to be a last minute recording, it probably isn’t from his new cd. Ideally it would be a song from the record to help sell the album, but it’s way too soon for that. I admit, I’m stumped. But carry on everyone else. I bet we’ll all be surprised when we finally find out what it actually is, lol.

  9. If it is the boot song I am a little sad because I was hoping it would go to Jordin, but I think David is a good pick for it too.

  10. Eek! So excited! But I got nothin, LOL. I don’t get the “MAY” in David’s tweet. Doesn’t seem typical of him to whip us into a frenzy for a possibility…? So I’m banking on finding out something legit this week. Don’t even know what I’m hoping for, but I hope it’s awesome! Woot!

    ETA: I think it’s probably related to AI… this seems a last minute thing, and AI tends to spring things on David very last minute… but hopefully, we’ll see soon enough!

  11. I don’t know what it could be. But my mind is jumping all over the place trying to figure it out.

    Whatever it is I’m looking forward to it.

  12. My first thought was the boot song, though next week would be early for that.

    Whatever it is, I’m excited!

  13. ALERT! ALERT! DAVID HAS A CLARIFICATION FOR US!!!

    thedavidcook David Cook
    Clarification: I have a busy week AHEAD of mixing and working on something special… which should surface the week after. :)

  14. thedavidcook David Cook
    Clarification: I have a busy week AHEAD of mixing and working on something special… which should surface the week after. :)

    So it is not next week but the week after next. So does that fit the bootsong?

  15. The plot thickens:

    @thedavidcook Clarification: I have a busy week AHEAD of mixing and working on something special… which should surface the week after. :)

    Curses – too late! That is sorta cruel – just when I got myself all prepared for goodies this week. I think Karma is trying to teach me something about delayed gratification.

  16. This has to be the boot song, don’t you think? Yay! But, it doesn’t sound like something that’s a part of his album—maybe a cover?

  17. ALERT! ALERT! DAVID HAS A CLARIFICATION FOR US!!!

    Not much of a clarification but I think it is a cover song for the Las Vegas episode.

  18. Wow, that could totally be the boot song now! Good for him! It really always should (not that it always did or will) be sung by one of the Idols (finalists/winners).

    Or maybe it’s not, who knows, that’s the fun…

  19. Hmm, that still seems one week early for the boot song, but it’s possible that David has not reviewed MJs helpful AI10 schedule

    Actually, looking at the schedule, they probably won’t use THE boot song until March 10. Unless they just plan to reveal it early…

  20. The NBA All-Star Game is a week from tomorrow — it could be a song for that…

  21. The NBA All-Star Game is a week from tomorrow — it could be a song for that…

    Hmmmm…. that could work. **ponders**

  22. What could he sing for the NBA All-Star Game that he would prerecord?

  23. “Should surface the week after…” hmm still think it’s too early for the boot song. That doesn’t usually surface until Top 10. It could be something for idol, not sure why they would have him record something special and air it this early. So I will weigh in and also say sports related. Other than that I got nothing.

  24. Hmm well if the mixing is happening this week then I wonder what the busy, busy stuff was last week that made him announce he was taking a twitter break..

  25. What could he sing for the NBA All-Star Game that he would prerecord?

    A song they would run over the credits or the recap reel, like with Heroes.

  26. If it’s the boot song, wouldn’t he have already recorded it, and be in the mixing stage now? I am thoroughly confuzzled, even with the “clarification.”

    Still, if it is the boot song, I’ll take my head off to 19/RCA and stop talking trash about them for at least a week!

    Probably final sit-down with label on the album tracks.

  28. Can’t wait to find out what it is. My first thought was that one of his songs will be used in a television show but not AI.

  29. More clues

    @CarlySmithson: @thedavidcook Do I know what it is ?? ;-}

  30. Okay this from twitter: Carly Smithson and Ben wrote a song for charity and some of her “Idol” friends are singing on it. Carly tweeted this after David’s tweet:

    @thedavidcook Do I know what it is ?? ;-}

    I think that it may just be the charity song Carly wrote that he is talking about.

  31. I think that it may just be the charity song Carly wrote that he is talking about.

    Mystery solved!!!!

    Now, what charity is it for, and where will it play on TV? And who else is on it?

  32. So, how would this Carly song be used on TV? Will it be performed on Idol?

  33. Why would Carly’s song be played on TV? The only way is if it’s featured on Idol and sold as a single.

  34. That’s what’s not making sense to me. Where would this song surface on TV?

  35. I’m not convinced, lol. I still think it’s the boot song :)

    ETA: also, if it’s Carly’s song, I can’t see David being the one to spill the news about it on twitter

  36. Well aren’t the Idols in LV next week and Carly is in LV. So maybe she asked Idol to promote the charity single and interview her a little while they were there.

  37. Does anybody have a link for the Carly Smithson / Ben charity song info? Can’t find anything on her Twitter or Myspace.

  38. EWS – The tweet I saw said Carly talked about it in a live chat with her fans, back in late Nov./early December. A Cook fan’s daughter was involved in the chat. Credible? You decide.

    EWS – The tweet I saw said Carly talked about it in a live chat with her fans, back in late Nov./early December

    Then timing-wise it doesn’t make sense that this is what David is talking about, does it? *clutches at straws*

  40. Yeah, I’m all for charity but I cant get excited if that is what it is. Sorry, been waiting too long for new DC music and can’t, won’t, shan’t, be satisfied with a bit part in a “charity song” and don’t I sound loverly. Not bitter at all. LoL

  41. Whatever it is…woohoo! But I’m not going to hold my breath yet. RCA has been extremely slow on the f/u with David.

  42. If it was Carly’s charity single, do we really think that David would be the one to “announce” it might be on TV in a week? I don’t think so.

  43. If it’s Carly’s charity song, wouldn’t Carly and Ben Moody be promoting it and not David? They haven’t said anything anywhere from what I can tell.

    David has been hanging out with Ben Moody quite a bit a few weeks back, it could be that Carly heard something that David was going to be singing and that would explain her tweet.

  44. Not much of a clarification but I think it is a cover song for the Las Vegas episode.

    Here’s my wild-ass speculatin’: Dave’s recording a cover of an Elvis song to be used as a charity boot single just like Carrie’s cover of “Home Sweet Home.” It will be revealed at the Vegas episode when the cast is in the theater where Carly is performing w/Viva Elvis (hence her inside knowledge).

    19 reps the Elvis estate, Dave’s still with 19M, in the past several years they have kept the boot song in the 19-family, not the Sony family or even the broader Idol family. Daughtry > Ruben > Carrie > Will Young > David Cook? It’s defintely not out of the realm of possibility…

    Hee..i have no clue what I’m talking about. Personally I don’t care what it is, just glad to have something to look forward to as soon as the week after next.

  45. Just a random mention – when I came in here – there were 42 posts – and the DC=42 just popped into my mind – *snerk*@Myself

    I have no idea either – but whatever it is – David is extremely stoked. If you look at the tweets, he has two smiles and a grin emoticon between the two of them – and that’s not usual. So I don’t lean to the charity song- even with the disclaimers of ‘may’ and ‘should’ be on your TV, I think it’s something bigger.

    Is the Cook Camp sewn up as tightly as usual, or is Kyle talking?

    Heh. WTF!, Cook?

  46. What could he sing for the NBA All-Star Game that he would prerecord?

    Could be anything. Remember how he did a super quick & dirty recording of ‘One Second to Change Your Life’ for ESPN to use for their baseball playoff montages? Here’s the ESPN anchors talking about how it was hot off the presses:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yehfRlmLW5o

    Maybe the song he wrote with Hodges and Moody was for the NBA? (Again, explaining Carly’s apparent insider info). Hell, it’s not like the man is hurting for material after a year plus of writing. Pick a demo any demo :)

  47. I like your Las Vegas idea LadyM. :) It beats the hell out of my Carly charity single.

  48. Pick a demo any demo

    And then check his Cherry Lane page, and Ben Moody’s page – and Hodges’ page – (because he has a hard time resisting the tease too.)

    You know David’s gonna tease this for two weeks, and enjoy every minute of it. ;)

  49. I never expect anything from RCA heh but 19/Idol has been good to him so if its anything Idol related I wouldn’t be surprised. At this point I just want *something* new. The Carly/charity thing I’m all meh on but who knows. Whatever it is it sounds like there’s no set date for when it could end up on TV..?

  50. I think last year they played a video and released the single for Carries boot song, and this was during semifinals. I really hope that is what he’s talking about. I agree he wouldn’t be the one to announce if it was Carlys project. What she said could also be about AI.

    I dont think this is something for his album either because he said the recording for the album is done.

  51. You’d think if it was the boot song 19 would want it to be something from his new record, to boost sales. Since it’s something he’s just laying down vocals for now, it seems like that wouldn’t be the case. The Las Vegas theory or the NBA theory seem more likely. Not that I wouldn’t LOVE for Dave to have the boot song mind you.

    Also he’s the teasiest teaser who ever teased.

  52. Speculation so far – What’s going to show up on TV in two weeks?

    1. Boot Song

    2. Charity Song

    3. Sports Related Song

    4. Vegas Episode Song

    5. Something Else – that merits using the Big Smiley

    TBC.

    I think – Something Else – because – it’s WTF!Cook – KWIM?

  53. I think – Something Else – because – it’s WTF!Cook – KWIM?

    I have said it over and over again. It’s the new Egyptian National Anthem. Mark my words.

  54. Well, at this point, it could be a freakin’ remix of Brahms Lullaby and I would be esctatic! It’s been waaaayyyy too long since I’ve heard DC’s lovely voice on something new…

  55. *Takes break from tending to 7 yr old with fever to come speculate*

    Though, I must admit, I always hesitate to even try to guess because…

    I think – Something Else – because – it’s WTF!Cook – KWIM?

    That. Heh. WTF!Cook is also one big, big tease.

    *Pouts at having to wait a week*

  56. I have no guesses, but I can say that he sounded like one happy guy! :)

  57. I like the boot song idea. From what Cookie says, we won’t hear it next week but the week after. Idol will be cutting the Top 40 down to the Top 20 that week (Thursday the 24th). Maybe they will play a boot song the first time this season then. They introduced Will Young’s “Leave Right Now,” last season’s boot song, on Thursday Feb 25, so the timing would be right. The live show on the 24th will be two hours long. There should be plenty of time for Cookie to sing it in person. :)

  58. I agree they introduced Will Young’s song early last year they could be doing the same this year with a David Cook song. It would be sweet if true. : )

  59. They should have used this David Cook song for the Boot last year, LOL!

    …. Got a look in your eye, looks a lot like goodbye
    Hold on to your secrets tonight
    Don’t want to know I’m ok with this silence
    It’s truth that I don’t want to hear
    You’re hiding regret in your smile
    There’s a storm in your eyes
    I’ve seen coming for a while
    Hang on to the past tense tonight
    Don’t say a word, I’m ok with the quiet
    The truth is going to change everything

    So Lie to me and tell me that it’s gonna be alright
    So Lie to me and tell me that we’ll make it through the night
    I don’t mind if you wait before you tear me apart
    Look me in the eye and lie, lie, lie
    Lie, lie, lie

  60. I was checking back for timing of announcements; Carrie’s boot song for Season 8 was announced March 9, 2009, just before Michael Jackson Week. Will Young’s announcement last year was February 25 since it was also used at semi-finals. So…boot song I think IS possible. Could it also be a charity single AND a Vegas-related song? Perhaps. But hear me out…

    Aren’t the Top 60 (or was it 40?) doing Beatles songs? So it could conceivably be a Beatles song OR an Elvis song. BUT David did a cover for them LAST year too (the Stones song). I’m really hoping it’s NOT a cover again. Maybe they are re-recording a song from Analog Heart, or DCTR, or that mystery pre-Idol 2nd album? Or something TOTALLY new!

    ETA: and Larc, most likely they’ll debut the boot song as it plays over the first bunch of semi-finalists/Last 20 leaving. Then they’ll invite David to perform it on the last night of the competition.

  61. ok, here goes my wild, left field theory:

    When I saw David live in Dallas he randomly played “Straight Ahead” off his Analog Heart cd, and as he announced it he said, “You never know where this song may pop up again” with a sly grin. *I think* lol

    So I’m hoping he’s re-recording Straight Ahead for the boot song. The chorus is pretty perfect…

    “So take a minute just to breathe
    and think of everything you wanted,
    and what you got instead.
    Is it a labor just see,
    Around the left, the right, over my head
    …just straight ahead.”

    That is my favorite scenario – boot song, and if it can’t be his new single, then it’s an old song that belongs to him. :)

  62. I will be really, really, really pissed off if Cook gets a huge opportunity like the boot song, and ends up singing that dreaded Hodges song, or something else he had no part in. It’s long past time for him to stop singing other people’s songs. If this turns out to be the case again, I might as well accept that he is never going to get any acknowledgement for his own work.

  63. ok, here goes my wild, left field theory:

    When I saw David live in Dallas he randomly played “Straight Ahead” off his Analog Heart cd, and as he announced it he said, “You never know where this may turn up” with a sly grin. *I think* lol

    So I’m hoping he’s re-recording Straight Ahead for the boot song. The chorus is pretty perfect…

    “So take a minute just to breathe
    and think of everything you wanted,
    and what you got instead.
    Is it a labor just see,
    Around the left, the right, over my head
    …just straight ahead.”

    That is my favorite scenario – boot song, and if it can’t be his new single, then it’s an old song that belongs to him.

    I love your wild, left-field theories, Brisblondie.

  64. he announced it he said, “You never know where this song may pop up again” with a sly grin. *I think* lol

    Brisblondie, I remember that from videos – he did say what you recall. That would be sweet. It’s my fav song from AH, I was beyond pleased he used it on the Neverending Tour – and I got to hear it at two of the concerts I went to. Also. it would be on iTunes to be purchased. Even sweeter.

  65. “You never know when this song might pop up again.” DC – Dallas, Texas, 11/08/09

    Here’s the video from that night – of “Straight Ahead” – David says it at :30 – in the banter just before the song.

  66. I will be really, really, really pissed off if Cook gets a huge opportunity like the boot song, and ends up singing that dreaded Hodges song, or something else he had no part in

    Nobody said that he’d be doing that song. The suggestion was that it was the song he co-wrote with Hodges and Moody.

    For the record, I lean more towards sports than boot song, although the SA idea does have a very nice bit of symmetry.

  67. Oh, Straight Ahead would be perfect!!!!! And it’s one of my favorite songs of his.

    The best part is he’ll get to do it on AI, also.

    ETA: I remember him saying something about hearing that song quite a few times during the tour.

  68. Nobody said that he’d be doing that song.

    Actually, Cook had no involvement in that dreadful Hard To Believe song, and it’s been talked about as if it were earmarked as a single since it turned up in a Cook promo video nearly a year ago. Hodges even tweeted at the time period that he expected Cook to make millions of dollars for him with that song. It’s a bad, bad omen.

  69. Even if it is the boot single, it could be a cover, like Carrie’s Home Sweet Home. That would make more sense why he’s just now recording it. Though if it’s Straight Ahead :) he could be re-recording it :) Yeah that’s what it is :)

  70. yay!yay! yay!

    but seriously. he’s f*ckin with our minds again with speculations.

    whatever, i’ll take anything now…

    yay! yay! yay!

  71. I like Straight Ahead, but I don’t see it as that strong of a possibility. At least not any more than Souvenir , which I think he said he hoped we’d see that one used somewhere else too, right?

    ETA: And Souvenir has been registered on ASCAP, quite some time ago. ;)

  72. These are all lovely theories, but the idol powers that be have always used a boot song that very literally reflects that the kids are going home, haven’t they? The first one I remember is Bad Day, wasn’t that S5? Then Daughtry had Home, Reuben had Celebrate me Home, I can’t remember Carrie’s song, or Will’s, but they were equally unimaginative. So if DC gets the boot song, it’ll likely be a cover of a song with the word “home” in it, lol.

  73. it’s been talked about as if it were earmarked as a single since it turned up in a Cook promo video nearly a year ago.

    Only by fans who can’t seem to understand that the video was recorded before Cook would have even been doing vocals. None of the press and promo has mentioned anything about Hodges except for the songs they cowrote. (Okay, maybe some blogger somewhere got confused, but no major media outlets.)

    As for Hodges making money off of it, people went and downloaded it, so he did.

    Regardless, if they were going to be doing something with that song, why the hell would he need to record it now? If that’s the case, then it’s not on the album.

    If he’s recording a remake, I’d lay money it’s going to be a known song for a specific purpose. But we don’t even know enough to rule out original material. He has released extra songs with writing credits before.

  74. Sylvanaire:

    Carries boot song was a cover of Home Sweet Home by Motley Crue.

  75. Even more far out there is this song, but I like it so I’m posting a couple of lines from it.

    Open eyes, open heart open ears
    For the season that you never show
    So I’ll let you go
    So I’ll let you go
    This year.

    ;)

    This song was linked again in the last day or so on DCO and (as when it popped up the first time) again removed.

  76. Another idea has been advanced by Scott at DCO about the ‘extra treat – something special”

    “Not only is he seemingly talking about “hearing” him, this whole thing may not even involve music. It could be voice over work for a commercial, a promo, or even an animated TV show. Or not. He used the laugh face, not the smiley face, so he’s most amused by it.”

  77. David Cook is a tease and I am sure he is laughing his a$$ off and it is a cute a$$ too. I love the speculation but am willing to just wait and see what he does. I know it will be great. Maybe he will give more clues.

  78. I’m with the sports related theory; Baseball’s spring training is starting next week and it could be a commercial promo on ESPN, Baseball Network or Extra Innings. Exciting news, anyway!

  79. I think it might be a song for TV program opening credits or sports related. The phrases “extra treat that you may get to hear on your TV next week” and “working on something special… which should surface the week after” are the keys.

  80. David Cook is the teasiest teaser who ever teased, the saucy minx. Not to mention cryptic. Not enough clues to make an educated guess-shocker! But in the wildest dreams category, you can put me down for a self penned boot song. I’ve kinda despaired a Cookie boot song, even a cover, ever happening though now that 19 left Sony for UMG. In the “yeah, that sounds about right” category you can put me down for some sort of baseball tie in. ESPN dudes like them some D.Cook.

  81. Of all the speculation on DCO, my favorite guess is a guest spot on Yo Gabba Gabba. Is it likely to give us a glance at his new music? Nope. Will it help promote his music to the world? Not really. Could it possibly help sell more copies of the upcoming DCTR2? Not likely. But will it crack my shit up? Hell yeah! Sign me up for that! :) And we all know Cook has no problem with putting on the full body spandex! (Hey, it’s called speculation for a reason, right?)

  82. Someone said that Baseball spring training is starting next week. So it could be a tie in with baseball as well. David has had songs tied to sports before.

  83. Hahaha Yo Gabba Gabba would be awesome. Or Jack’s Big Music Show if that’s still on – I loved when Jerry Lawson was on there. My kids have sadly outgrown both shows for the most part but I loved them. Especially “There’s a Party In My Tummy” hee.

  84. Is there any chance that his first single off the new record could be used as this season’s “boot song”? That would be some excellent cross-promotion, and everybody knows that’s what Fox is most shameless adept at. Heck, they could use it for the upcoming MLB season too. I assume Fox still has the contract for that as well.

  85. Bootstar – he likely would have already recorded the single. This is something he’s recording this week according to his tweets. The single being the boot song would have been the best case scenario, though.

  86. When I saw David live in Dallas he randomly played “Straight Ahead” off his Analog Heart cd, and as he announced it he said, “You never know where this song may pop up again” with a sly grin. *I think* lol

    So I’m hoping he’s re-recording Straight Ahead for the boot song. The chorus is pretty perfect…

    “So take a minute just to breathe
    and think of everything you wanted,
    and what you got instead.
    Is it a labor just see,
    Around the left, the right, over my head
    …just straight ahead.”

    I think Straight Ahead would be a great boot song. I know his second tweet was to clarify the timing but I found his wording interesting. Instead of saying I will be busy next week, he said, “I have a busy week AHEAD” and emphasized the last word by capitalizing it….maybe in reference to Staight Ahead? I’m probably reading WAY too much into it. He’s probably doing something sports related, but a girl can dream!

  87. Bootstar – he likely would have already recorded the single. This is something he’s recording this week according to his tweets. The single being the boot song would have been the best case scenario, though.

    Oh, that makes sense, Brisblondie. Maybe they’re recording a re-mix? ;-)

    I remember thinking “Silver” would have made a good boot song the first time I heard it. Not a big fan of “Straight Ahead,” but I won’t object if they use it — although I’d be shocked (in a good way).

  88. Hi I have a question about “This Year” on youtube. I couldn’t find that video anymore even though I know someone posted and I was watching that video today. Is there any significance that This year is taken down quite rapidly, while ‘Make Believe’ videos are still on youtube?

  89. Mon_mon, that song is from the unreleased songs that didn’t make the First Album, it’s listed here, while “Make Believe”, written for the Second Album, had quite a few live performances during the Neverending Tour. That’s the big difference between them, except for the fact that of the listed unreleased songs – only “We’re Only Honest When We’re Sleeping”, “One Second To Change Your Life” and “This Year” exist in a full length form instead of just snippets. That we know of.

    But IDK what that means, they pull the PH song too, and it was played twice. I know David has a large back catalogue of unreleased songs from DCTR…and maybe there are future plans for many of them…as happened with two of the songs above, and Frankie Negron and “No Reply”.

    As usual with WTF!Cook – we wait and see.

  90. Thanks Incipit for answering :). I thought that “This Year” was like “Make Believe”. I love This year though. I am also waiting to see what would come up from Cook . I am fine with anything at this stage right now.

  91. I am fine with anything at this stage right now.

    Heh. IKWYM. Sunday was the 2nd Anniversary of the start of the Neverending Declaration Tour – beyond ready for any news, or anything that will lead to the next one.

    I do want that AHEAD in caps in the tweet to be a clue that means something about the song “Straight Ahead”, but what card David has up his sleeve? I have no real notion.

  92. So he put AHEAD in caps. Very interesting. What is AHEAD? This year is ahead, isn’t it. What? Someone tried to post links to the song “This Year” twice this past week? Why now? And those links were deleted as well as the youtube video that they linked to? Does that mean something? Who knows, just a coincidence I’m sure but it makes for some knollish speculation. Don’t mind me, ’cause I’m just so confused. There’s too many possibilities out there.

  93. There is an ASCAP entry which lists David as the performer of a Mitch Allan song called “Everybody Gets Lost.” I think that Mitch co-wrote “No Boundaries” so this frightens me.

  94. He did, Cheese – but that’s an old demo – there even exists a version of Mitch singing it on youtube from May 2008 – and it’s not very good – same simplistic approach to the lyric, same clunky verse treatment that runs through NoBo. I guess the suckitude wasn’t all Kara? *snerk*

    But I wouldn’t be frightened, it’s not on his Wiki list – and he even adds a song that “only made it as far as the demo” in 2010.

    Obviously, David did a lot of demos and a lot of co-writing for DCTR; just as now – most of it never sees the light of day. I doubt that one has anything to do with the ‘special treat”.

    JMO. Of Course.

  95. Phew – thanks, Incipit, glad to hear that. I vaguely remember giving the demos a quick listen at the time but I didn’t really remember much about them. I’m glad singing a crappy No Boundaries-esque song is not going to be the treat : )

    I’ll go back to hoping it’s something Idol related and either a cover of a good song or something that David wrote. Actually a cover similar to “Home Sweet Home” would be perfect as it probably wouldn’t really compete with David’s hypothetical single that should be out between now and the end of time.
