Throwback Thursday ‘Feels Like Tonight’ by Daughtry (2008)
I know Daughtry is kind of one of those bands that people either love or hate like Nickelback or Matchbox Twenty.
I feel indifferent about Daughtry to be honest, I just picked them for Throwback Thursday because I hadn't heard from them in awhile.
"Feels Like Tonight" by Daughtry was the fourth single off the debut album, Daughtry.
If you didn't know, frontman Chris Daughtry, was on the fifth season of American Idol.
According to Wikipedia, Chris Daughtry didn't even like the song and didn't want to record it for his album:
Max Martin and Dr. Luke had written this song and it was actually one of two songs that I’ve recorded that I didn’t write anything on. I didn’t work with those guys. I remember it being very close to the end of the record making process [for 2006’s self-titled debut] and I remember getting this song and I was like, 'No, no, I’m not cutting it, it’s way too pop. It’s so not with the rest of the record.' I was really being a bull about it. I remember being told, 'This was the song that they wrote for you had you won the show.' And I was like, 'Well now I definitely don’t want to do it!' Anyway, I appeased them and I recorded it and then I remember hearing it back and going 'OK, you were right, this was definitely a good idea.' And it became one of our bigger songs. I still don’t know what it means.
Good thing he did record it. It went to #1 on Billboard Adult Top 40 chart, #5 on Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, and #12 on Billboard Mainstream Top 40 chart.
