David Cook 6.0 : We're Crashing Down In His Davalanche

Welcome Cookistas, Cookies, Word Nerds, Cookulets, Cooksters, Cookinoys , all David Cook fans, whether affiliated with any fan groups or not, and most especially, to those who are discovering David Cook just now.

To our surprise, we finished our last thread (David Cook 5.0: He’ll be GOLD for Christmas) sooner than anyone expected. We had started it with apprehensions about finishing it well after Christmas, rendering the title outdated (hee!). Previous thread life spans were about a month, but given the holiday season, people were worried we wouldn’t get enough posts. Were we ever wrong. Because well, here we are!

We were right about one thing though: DCTR (David Cook: The Record, as it is fondly called in all of Cook fandom) did turn GOLD, and well before Christmas. Week 4 sales figures by Nielsen Soundscan for DCTR are 582,048. Moreover, the album was in the Top 10 bestselling albums for 4 straight weeks. As we begin this thread, sales figures for Week 5 are pegged at another 132,527 units, making the total 714,575. DCTR is expected to reach platinum sometime during the 1st quarter of 2009.

DCTR appears several times in Billboard’s Yearend Charts:

#8. David Cook, Top New Artists : Link

#8. “The Time of My Life” - David Cook, Hot Adult Contemporary Songs : Link

#41. David Cook (with 13 chartered titles) , Hot 100 Artists : Link

#69. “The Time of My Life” - David Cook, Hot 100 Songs: Link

#8. “The Time of My Life” - David Cook , Hot Adult Contemporary Songs: Link

#28. David Cook, Hot Digital Songs, Artist: Link

#26. “The Time of My Life” - David Cook, Hot Adult Top 40 Songs: Link

#46. David Cook, Pop 100 Artists : Link

On December 21, to our utter surprise, Magic 89.9 announced its Pick of the Week challenge: David’s Avalanche vs. Flo Rida’s Touch Me (see how it went down, page 117 of thread 5). Avalanche won by a landslide. In the days that followed, the DJs reported that they received an “avalanche of requests”. The song sits at #4 in their Top [email protected] countdown as we begin this thread. Ergo, our thread title! Hopefully, the song (which we sometimes fondly call “Abalants”) will continue to climb the charts.

For those who would like to look back, or are curious about our history:

David Cook 1.0 The True Rocker of AI7: David Cook : Where it all started. Midway through American Idol season 4, David Cook already had a strong, vocal following whom he earned through sheer talent and hard work, but at the time it was a well-known fact that he was not the Chosen One. All through the thread, more and more fans joined in the fray, dedicated enough to log in hundreds and hundreds of votes from across cyberspace. By the end of the thread, we already had our American Idol.

David Cook 2.0 Consider Yourselves Cookified! : Where we ooh’d and aah’d over DC’s American Idol tour performances, awaited developments and news about his upcoming album – the label (RCA), producer (Rob Cavallo), collaborators (too many to mention, see Wiki) -- and marvelled at that sneaky little Magic Rainbow which has since then turned into Platinum Rainbow

David Cook 3.0 Thread Still Untitled, Just Like His Album : Where we talked about the then much-anticipated yet-untitled debut album

David Cook 4.0 `Cause we love, and we bleed, and we stole his soul to set him free: Where anticipation for the debut album was at its height, and where album release day finally came. It took us only a little over a month to finish the thread.

David Cook 5.0 He’ll be GOLD for Christmas!: Where we eagerly monitored HDD and Soundscan sales figures for DCTR, celebrated David’s birthday and the album’s GOLD status, and basically enjoyed the holidays and looked forward to a new year with high hopes for David Cook’s success in the music industry.

Some of our best-loved and most frequented David Cook websites:

David Cook Official – The place to be. Also fondly referred to as “kabila”, “kabilang bahay”. Of special note here is the TWoP thread, where the snarkiest, smartest and funniest of fans gather and discuss everything and anything Cook-related under the sun. Warning though: not for light readers, as the thread runs at the speed of light. Don’t blink or else you might find pages and pages worth of backreading. The TWoP thread’s sister Billboard and Soundscan thread, is also a favourite haunt for those who are curious about the numbers – charts and sales information, airplay, station adds and the like.

David Cook Livejournal community – Gives a very useful overview of Must-Know DC-related events across the internet. LJ members are a very resourceful, creative, and witty bunch. If you need or want something, ask and you will most probably get it.

david-cook.org aka The Dash - One of the largest and better-organized DC communities out there, this forum provides a wealth of resources for fans.

MJ’s Big Blog – aka MJs. A veritable institution for all American Idol lovers, MJ keeps tabs on all things Idol. Naturally, that also means keeping track of AI winners. MJ gives up to date information on Idol news and appearances, as well as sales and chart information.

  • Woohoo!

    LOL bittersweet, lagi mo akong napapatawa dahil sa iyong dancing sabas. Dapat yata ikaw ang ating saba queen :lol:

    I feel alive beside you
    And all at once
    I am whole again.
    We fall into each other
    Your atmosphere
    Is all i'm breathing in
    And in this rush
    We are crushed

    CARRIE me down
    Roll it in your arms
    Cause' i can't remember
    Ever falling this hard
    Tell me tonight
    All that we have been
    Was it nothin' more
    Than a noise inside my head
    Crashing down crashing down
    In your avalanche.
    In your avalanche.

    These scars we wear remind us
    The more we change
    The more we're all the same
    Swept up in this emotion
    We fumble through and make the same mistakes
    Cause' we are led
    To the edge

    CARRIE me down
    Roll it in your arms
    I can't remember
    Ever falling this hard
    Tell me tonight
    All that we have been
    Was it nothin' more
    Than a noise inside my head
    Crashing down crashing down
    In your avalanche
    Crashing down crashing down

    CARRIE me down
    Roll it in your arms
    Cause i can't remember
    Ever falling this hard
    Tell me tonight
    All that we have been
    Was it nothin' more
    Than a noise inside my head

    CARRIE me down
    Roll it in your arms
    Cause i can't remember
    Ever falling this hard
    Tell me tonight
    All that we have been
    Was it nothin more
    Than a noise inside our heads
    Crashing down crashing down...

    Was it nothing more
    Than a noise inside our heads
    Crashing down
    Crashing down

    I feel alive beside you
    Than all at once i am whole again...
