We’ve Got Tonight – Phillip Phillips Lyrics
2 Jun 2012
Album: Phillip Phillips: Journey to the Finale
Genre: Pop rock, Soft rock
Lyrics by: Bob Seger
Release Date: 2012
Phillip Phillips is one of the two finalists of American Idol. He is a honest singer with very atypical attitudes compared with other contestants in this type of TV show.
Phillip Phillips was one of the 12,000 aspirants who want to participate in “American Idol”. He had his first audition in Savannah, Georgia. He sang Superstition by Stevie Wonder first and the judges ask him to perform a second song with his guitar. And there he won the pass ticket to the show: He performed a particular acoustical version of Thriller by Michael Jackson.
To stay as one of the two finalists he had to overcome several stages. He overcame the Hollywood session first, later the Las Vegas session. Lastly, he was chosen as one of the 24 semifinalists.
Sometimes his voice reminds us of Joe Cocker, sometimes he makes us remember the voice of Sting subtly but most of the time his voice sounds very similar to Dave Matthews‘s voice. Actually, Matthews joked himself about this singer in the New York Magazine, saying that maybe he can retire and Phillips could take charge of his band.
Phillips doesn’t have a big vocal power when compared, for example, with his rival Jessica Sanchez. His advantage is the fact that he is an original artist. Actually, he has showed some impudence when he said that he is not interested in trying to perform music to delight the public since the only reason why he creates music is because he loves it and he is not just trying selling music.
Since he can be considered as an indie artist, some experts anticipate a logic consequence: He won’t be a sales phenomenon.
“I’m trying to get the music out there. I’m not trying to be some boy that tries to look good or anything. I want the music to speak first,” said Phillips in a very self-confident way.
Phillips is very aware of the fact that the songs that peaks hot positions in charts are not necessarily high quality songs. But this doesn’t mean that he is against the commercial music, he just believes that he will try a different approach in his future career.
Actually, when he has had freedom to choose the songs to perform in “American Idol”, he opted for not very famous songs by not very prominent artists , for example: Volcano by Damien Rice. However, his best performance was when producer Jimmy Iovine picked a song for him: We’ve Got Tonight, the classic song by Bob Seger released in 1978 (an original song from the album Stranger in Town).
It’s weird that an artist such as Phillips was a finalist since his attitudes are not a traditional match with the conventions of these TV shows. When Tommy Hilfiger, the fashion designer, advised him against wearing gray clothes on the stage, he wore gray clothes. In that same episode, Jimmi Iovine (the mentor of the show and producer of artists like U2, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks and Dire Straits, among others) advised him against appearing with his guitar on the stage, and again he did it his way: He appeared with his instrument.

The Los Angeles band don’t stop working and has announced that their fourth studio album will be launched in June. That album will be called Overexposed.
No doubt, recently the radio stations have been very benevolent with this band and Maroon 5 has achieved very good results with Move Like Jagger which has been a real success including also a collaboration with Christina Aguilera in that song.
Apparently, the upcoming album of the band won’t be very different from the last one and could include even more pop sounds compared with the songs we know already. The successful band has chosen this song called Payphone as the first single of the upcoming album. The song was introduced through a popular reality TV show called The Voice and has had a very good reception. It is available for digital download since April 23.
When the guitarist of the band (James Valentine) was asked about the new album, he said that “at this point in our career I think it was a good thing to completely mix up our process and it yielded good results, as well as a more collaborative spirit within the band. We wanted to make something that sounded contemporary with the elements of a lot of early eras of pop music. This is our most ‘pop’ record ever and we weren’t shy about really going for it.”
Max Martin, Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco are the executive producers of the album. Even, Benny Blanco was the musical producer for some of the tracks. In this first single -Payphone- Maroon 5 had a collaboration with Wiz Khalifa.
