Acoustic Covers Week: David Cook- Billie Jean and Hello and Jonatha Brooke- Eye in the Sky

Of all the peformers I’ve heard on American Idol, David Cook is the best at bringing an original take.  His spin on Billie Jean is pretty powerful, as was his version of Lionel Richie’s Hello.

Jonatha Brooke has one of those voices like Shawn Colvin that has a clarity and purity to it that always makes me feel good.  I think of one of the really underrated bands of the 70’s was the Alan Parsons Project, as the band were like a pop version of Pink Floyd.
