    The (remotely) good news is that the song's lack of Idol-single cliches may keep it out of rotation, which means this guy can build his career on more interesting music instead of being compelled by record producers to follow up with something similar.

    It does sound a lot like Mumford and Sons.

    Edit: there really isn't much there to that song, is there?

    Not a horrible song, but I really dislike his "Dave Mathews" style.

    I thought I read somewhere that even he didn't like the single.

    According to the ad for next season, it's the best selling celebration single of all time with 278k downloads in the first week.

    Not everybody hates it, obviously.

    I listened to the song before reading the thread and my first thought was "isn't that Dave Matthews?"

    Couple of news worthy things:

    First, I didn't realize the reason the surgery was over 6 hours was because the stint had gotten embedded and they had to cut it out with a laser tool. Ouchie!

    Also his single is doing really good!
