When I found out Phil Phillips, the dark horse of this season’s American Idol was going to sing We’ve Got Tonight, originally sung by Bob Seger way back in 1978 and later recorded as a duet by Kenny Rogers & Sheena Easton in 1983, I was in ecstasy!
Even B jumped when I suddenly screamed and clapped my hands in glee the moment I heard Jimmy (American Idol’s mentor) said he had chosen this song for Phil Phillips to sing in last week’s Top 3 vital performance. I could not ask for a better song, thanks Jimmy for reading the mind of this incurable romantic!
I love what Jimmy had to say about this song. A deep meaningful song, with a dark edge to it and all the emotions of a romantic, aching soul, complete with a haunting melody and lyrics indeed! No wonder this has always been one of my all-time favourite classic songs when it comes to sad love songs with words so beautiful you just wanna cry!
Results show last Friday was totally intense and as much as I love Jessica Sanchez, I was really hoping for a PP – Joshua finale. It is such a shame that Joshua Ledet, the obvious best singer of this season, will not be fighting in the finale, don’t you think?
Yes, I’m posting three different versions of this song because I love them all, starting from the latest version by Phil Phillips. Let’s hope this super duper cutie pie makes it all the way to the Top! Happy Music Monday and please vote for Phil Phillips, America!
