American Idol and “You Look So Good In Love”

Last night on American Idol’s second day of the Boston auditions, Nigerian-born Bosa Mora sang “You Look So Good In Love” and catapulted himself into the Hollywood final auditions. It seems to me that this song wants to be sung in other genres, namely Smooth Jazz/R&B. Jamie Foxx started it when he did a soulful version on the George Strait Special. It always gets me thinking of that day back in L.A. when Kerry Chater, Glen Ballard, and I unknowingly sat down and wrote a masterpiece. When people ask me about songs like that my only thought is “I sure am glad I wrote that day.” It’s in the air my friends, you just have to be there to pull it in. Write especially if you don’t feel like it. Click read more to see the video.

    Awesome, Dad. You know I am an Idol addict, and when I heard this audition on Idol, I was jumping up and down before Bosa got to the word “Love.” I think it’s cool that this song has cut across so many genres and cultural lines…I mean Bosa is no cowboy! I love to think of him sitting at home and practicing this song over and over.
