The Top 10 Favorite Dave Songs List Thread

Recommended Posts

So.... this is just a survey of your Top 10 David Cook songs. Sounds simple, right? NOT easy. I saw a version of this on another site, but it had VERY strict rules disqualifying more than half the songs we've heard him sing. It really frustrated me making "my" list of Dave songs which did not include some of the most important songs to me. So it wasn't really my list at all. Then tonight I realized, well I can just create my own survey, the way I want it, dammit, 'cause it's mine, lol. I'd love you all to participate. Here's how my rules go:

  • Post your list of your Top 10 songs that David Cook has sung. #1 = most favorite, etc.
  • It can be ANY SONG YOU'VE EVER HEARD HIM SING. Each song can be from DCTR, Analog Heart, anything Axium, anything from AI, anything he sang on tewer (including MWK songs) or after, anything there is a youtube video of him singing, anything from Red Hot to High and Dry.
  • All versions of the song count as one. If you're thinking of a specific version of that song, it's cool to post which one, but I'll only be tallying the songs by name. So Feed Your Ego from Blindsided or Feed Your Ego from Alive in Tulsa or Feed Your Ego Remix Live at Cain's Ballroom, all will be tallied as Feed Your Ego.
  • Survey starts now, and ends 11:59PM Dec 31st.
  • You can change your answer. But if you edit your post, please make a new post telling us so. Otherwise we won't know to change your answers in our spreadsheet.

At the end, we'll post all kinds of fun statistical stuff about the lists.

It's agonizing, but try to have fun. And this thread is also for discussion about how hard it is, what songs didn't make the cut and broke your heart, asking each other why that song, etc. And if you don't like my rules, I'm no dictator - we can all talk about what changes are suggested and majority rules.

Shit, this is going to be hard... I'm going to have to give this some thought. The problem is that my favorites today might not be my favorites tomorrow. LOL Face

I'll be back... eventually.

Oh and I hope people give their reasons if they feel comfortable doing that. It's fun seeing what a particular song means to a person.

1. Anodyne
2. Let Go
3. Declaration
4. Makeover
5. Paper Heart
6. everything else Laughing

That's not my official list, obviously, since it's only half a list so far, lol. But those 5 will be on my list, for sure.

I can't believe 4 people already have their lists done!

Barb, I knew you loved Stitches, but didn't realized you love it even more than you love 'Til I'm Blue! Also surprised the #4 song on your list on the other board totally dropped off this one!

So far we have 4 complete lists, and already 26 different songs!

LOL flag It was a tough decision to leave Let Go off this list. I took my original top ten list from elsewhere and then had to remove songs to fit in the ones that didn't qualify there. It may just be my mood tonight but I wanted to keep Balance and Me more than Let Go. Tomorrow I may feel differently about it.

Deciding how to rank Stitches and TIB was the hardest part of making that list. Really it's more like 1a and 1b than 1 and 2.

Can we post a new list every day??? I'm terribly fickle, you know! Very Happy

1. Let Go - There's just something about this song that I love.
2. Leave Behind - So dramatic - love dramatic rock!!!
3. Bar ba sol - Totally grabs you and brings you in, both on the record and live
4. Mr. Sensitive - especially live - beat the crap outta that guitar, Dave!!!
5. Thought You Knew - The song just totally rocks.
6. Man In The Box - Always loved this song and it fits David to a tee!
7. Heros w/Champagne Supernova
8. I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight - Angry Dave!!! FTW
9. Don't Say A Word - It just makes me happy - don't really know why...
10. All I Really Need Is You - my fav AI performance song

Have to post some honorable mentions just because...

Incarcerate from Alive In Tulsa - IMO one of his best vocals ever
Declaration - because it for us and totally says it all
Permanent from the Idol performance - so emotional!!
Acoustic Livin On a Prayer - I like David's version better than the original

If I could, I'd make all of David's banter my number one choice!!! That is what makes his shows so amazing and captivating.

I'm not a big fun of covers so they'll be no covers on my list. Although I was really tempted to put "Billie Jean" on the list since it was the song that truly blow me away and made fall for him but I'll take his original music over any cover no matter how good it was.

1. Porcelain – I don't really know how to explain it but there is just something about this song… Raw, angry Dave... I've said it many times before and I'll say it again, my biggest dream is to see this one live one day.
2. Lie – I cry every time I hear this song and the A Cappella part Thud!
3. Just in case - This song has so much personal meaning for me that I'm not going to go into, I even had the words "Just in case" tattooed on my shoulder blade. I'll just say that I see this song as the song that gave me the courage to make the changes I needed in my live.
4. Heroes - This song never fails to touch me. It is such a beautiful, hopeful and uplifting sone.
5. We're Only Honest When We're Sleeping - The brilliant lyrics are so full of emotions + Neal backup vocals = Awww Love
6. Souvenir - Just love this song. Still hoping it'll make the new album.
7. Dear Heaven - The ultimate angry Dave and one of the most under appreciated songs IMO. The way he build the "the more she took away, the more I had enough". Until he practically screams it…
8. Wavelength - Don't have much to say about this one except that I really, really love it. The music, the lyrics everything about this song just works for me.
9. Fall back into me - First song I fall for in Analog Heart, still have a warm spot for him.
10. Mr. Sensitive - Dave beating the hell out of his guitar... Need I say more?

The problem is that you thought about it for too long. It's easier if you just go with your gut feeling and do it quickly.

The problem is my gut feeling was over 20 songs right off the top of my head. The top 5 weren't hard - like Daina who has her top 2 as her start, lol. But then... SO many songs and only 5 more slots!
