when david cook (NO, THIS ISN'T A POST ABOUT HIM) took the stage for the first time during the finale episode, his first song (chosen by music mogul Clive Davis), was "I still haven't found what i'm looking for". I don't remember what he said verbatim, but what i do remember is that this song speaks about the youth of today, thirsty for identity and meaning.
when david sang it, the bohemian inspired beat + the righteous lyrics did win me over, conjuring images of vast deserts and mountains, and a lone traveler on his journey with no end.
this is U2's version of the song. very very righteous indeed. but i am going to sound very very biased when i say that david did a better job. :)
