DAVID COOK: DISCOGRAPHY (Unofficial)

David Cook has an amazing songwriting history. From the resources I could access as a fan, he has writing credit on approximately 94 songs, sole writing credit on 36 of those. However, eight Axium songs were unreleased, and we've heard only A Daily AntheM, We're Only Honest, and that tease snippet of Better Never Than Late from his unreleased second solo album. In addition, several songs were written that didn't make the Album-David Cook; so far we've heard full-length versions of only Souvenir and One Second to Change Your Life. I included youtube links for all available songs, including live concert performance videos for DCTR. This list includes songs he wrote from the time he was 15 years old to the present. The earliest known recording of each song is numbered. Songs listed under released albums are in tracklist order.

(NOTE: There is a companion discography to this one, which groups David's songs by each co-writer. These are David's songwriting discographies, therefore, not every song he recorded is listed, only songs David wrote or co-wrote.)

Thanks for putting all these wonderful stats together! It's been a while since I remembered to look here! David has sure wrote or been a part in songwriting for a long time! I pray that when he drops his 3rd CD.. he will get the recognition he has worked so hard for! Dayumnn he sure has earned it!

NyCArole

Great to see this again it has been a while since I looked at it. Many memories

This list is incredible, thanks for putting it together!! It really shows how many songs he wrote, and it's even more now, with the songs for the new album. And it's probably way more than that, if he wrote 30 songs for each of the previous albums and then picked from the best.

I did have a question, for some reason, I thought Souvenier was from the unreleased second album, with We're Only Honest when we're Sleeping. I guess it was written for DCTR then?

I know this thread is from a long time ago, but I just saw it linked and just saw it.

Thanks so much for pulling all this together. I'm gonna go back and listen to a lot of these. Fantastic.

This is fantastic. Thank you!

Amazing! Thank you for doing this.
I'm happily adding this to my bookmarks.

Dear Heaven isn't on here I think it should be since David performed it and Neal played guitar and wrote it Smiling

How wonderful it is that you care so much about David and his music.
That you really listen and discover his music.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is exactly what I've been looking for. Every time I listen to these songs, I'm always wanting to know exactly who did what. Who did David write it with? Who played the drums on AH? Who exactly did he write my favorite Axium songs with? etc. etc. You've answered them all. Now I'll have to print it out and bring a copy with me to double check while I'm listening. LOL! And you've even included youtube examples of many songs. What a great bonus!

The depth of insight in David's lyrics, even when he was very young, is simply astounding. I've been listening to more and more Axium lately. The beauty of the words melds with the beauty of the music and creates something that reaches into my soul and takes hold of me. I think Peace of Mind is the most beautiful song I've ever heard or ever will. It's a shame that only David's most devoted fans will probably be the only ones to ever hear it.
