Jon Foreman on Grey's Anatomy; Switchfoot's Stars = Dream Big...?

First off, for yet another delayed update, I thought this little blurb about American Idol from MSNBC was pretty sweet:


Cook would have actually been better served by his Tuesday selection, "Dream Big." Emily Shackelton's original is a moderately sparky (if generic) country-pop number that has the unprecedented advantage of not being mind-numbingly dumb, but the word "stars" in the chorus seems to have inspired Cook to rearrange it as a Switchfoot knockoff. Making it sound like the quietly Christian band not only fit the singer, it suited the second verse's veiled religious references.

It did sound kind of Switchfootesque to me...


Also, if you didn't catch it yesterday, Jon Foreman's song "The Cure For Pain" was featured not once, but twice on the Grey's Anatomy Episode. You can watch them on youtube.

Thanks LOBH for finding it!


LOBH also put up a video one of their reader's found. It's a new interview with Jono. Check it out. It's the usual stuff, but still interesting.
