david domination...

The David Cook World Domination has begun.

Okay, maybe not the world, but certainly the Billboard charts.

Shattering Hannah Montana's debut record of six titles on the Billboard Hot 100, David Cook debuts on the chart with 11 titles showing up on this week's list, the first time that the Idol's downloads have been included. (We all knew that between the Davids, they were probably taking up a huge chunk, but now we have that verified.)

Cook's eleven titles also is the most titles on the 100 list since the Beatles claimed 14 spots back in 1964.

Cook's domination is, of course, spearheaded by Time of My Life, his coronation song - magic rainbows and all - which will debut at #3 on the Hot 100 and #1 on Digital Downloads. Fourteen titles will land on the Hot Digital Songs list.

David Archuleta isn't doing too shabbily either. Three of his titles will be included on both lists.

I wish sooooo bad that they'd do a studio recording of DC doing "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face." I'm wearing out my youtube.com privileges with that one performance.

Well, since iTunes didn't offer an audio version, just a video one, here's a link to where you could possibly maybe kinda sorta get the audio from that performance.

The First Time

Let the David Hegemony begin!!!!!

Not to completely hijack your post, but I'd like to take this opportunity to reflect on some other famous Davids to go with The Arch, Cook and the High Lord.

*The guy who killed Goliath with a rock

*The camp where the president meets with other big-wigs

*Along with a partner, he sells a heck of a fruit of the month collection

*Bends a soccer ball

*Underneath Darth Vader's mask (and I don't mean Hayden Christensen)

*Ziggy Stardust

*The touring half of Pink Floyd

*Patron Saint of Wales

*Married Rachel twice (take that Brad Pitt!!!)

*Has a great Top 10 List

*King of the Wild Frontier

*Used to sleep with Claudia Schiffer

*The Hoff

Long live David!

You remember Hoff and you forget about the STATUE? And the head of the Partridges? Well, at least you remembered to include yourself!

Long Live the Davids!

I thought about including the statue, but since it's just a statue of the guy who killed Goliath (and had a guy killed so he could bag his wife), I figured that would be a little bit repetitiously redundant.

all i can say is, doesn't that sorta suggest a LOT more people liked Cook than ANYONE imagined???

Those are absolutely absurd numbers. He could make an album of just those songs he sung on the show for right now and it'd probably go Platinum :) haha

How about Apple releasing the sales totals from throughout the season now, and Billboard posting how they would have placed those weeks. that would be some interesting data. and perhaps it would give us some idea what the producers were seeing. mayhaps Cook was so far ahead throughout that they needed to pimp Archie just to get it to not be a 40 million vote knockout?? hmm wouldn't that be a shocker??? hehe

just noticed something interesting. I didn't think he had a "studio" version of Dream Big, which I really liked, so whatever version counted for the Top 100, it's his 2nd place song at 15th (7th on digital)!! WOW

And 101, 103 and 104 are also his. All his songs are in the Top 125. That's pretty dang good :)

I'm listening to his songs from the david-cook.org site player, and I have to say, I just might have to go an actually pay for some of them. Especially the studio versions. Wow he sounds even better that I thought during the show :)

um, quick change of topic, but still Idol related.

Jenn, just heard on NBC4 news that Clay is going to be a dady. His girl is 50 year old producer Jaymes Foster. She was artificially inseminated.

So, he's not gay, but he's hanging with a 50 year old? um ok, I always knew he was a little quirky :)
