    Exciting news! I read that some major news is coming our way soon. Also hope that the next week reveals who in the heck is managing him. Has anyone figured that out yet?

    freo: Hmmm, no news about a manager, and I sometimes think David is managing himself. Although, I know there is probably someone back there making things happen.

    I’m going to bet the major news is the release of the single -- a firm date!

    I am sooo ready for this. GMALil has been sending photos and calls of the happening. Even the band sounds jazzed .. wish he had more concerts planned, on the East Coast of course.

    Oh, no, they are saying NO VIDEOS! Who could do that to us? What crazy security policy is that? Especially after David said we would be getting some surprises.

  12. jackryan4da
    June 19, 2010

    No vids probably because he will sing a track or 2 from the album -- to gauge response from the market

    ArchiesCrush made up a song for us lalaa
    “Oh give me a home where the potatoes roam, and the moose and the moose-calves all play… Where David can sing, and the fangirls can scream, “YES! The Idaho concert’s todayyyy!”

  15. jackryan4da

    MARLIE -- yes only the press are allowed to record. My guess is BYU has 1st dibs with the recording. They have a very good set-up with their i-Connect News

    Ah….. this is lovely!

    Thanks JR and Marlie for keeping TDC on track when some of us are flat-out with real-life stuff.

    I’ve only had time so far to listen to Be Still My Soul. Oh my -- this is the song that was such a comfort to me during some dark times last summer. I listened over and over to the grainy youtube of him singing at a Fireside behind a lectern. What a pleasure it is to see him on stage in all his glory, high notes, chills and all.

    David -- what a gift you are!

    My stab at the lyrics of PARACHUTES & AIRPLANES [am i displaying my preference of the two songs? :) ]

    There’s something crazy ’bout this day
    Like I’m walking on a trampoline
    I couldn’t get much higher

    Ooohh, so if I ask you, would you stay?
    ‘Cause you remind me of a
    Ballerina dancin’ on a wire

    And I don’t ever want to say goodbye
    I just want to steal this moment
    Right away from time

    Refrain:
    What do you say when you can’t look down
    When you feel like you’re ten feet off the ground
    What do you do when you’re on the edge
    Now you’re here and you got me thinking ’bout
    Parachutes and airplanes
    Thinking about
    Parachutes and airplanes
    We’ll never hit the ground, ground, ground, ground

    The world’s a thousand shades of blue
    Like we’re here in the kaleidoscope
    Don’t want it to be over

    But everything that’s in my mind
    Is here right in front of my eyes
    And you’re the one who got me here

    And I don’t ever want to say goodbye, oohhh
    I just want to steal this moment
    Right away from time

    Refrain:
    What do you say when you can’t look down
    When you feel like you’re ten feet off the ground
    What do you do when you’re on the edge
    Now you’re here and you got me thinking ’bout
    Parachutes and airplanes
    Thinking about
    Parachutes and airplanes
    We’ll never hit the ground

    Bridge:
    ‘Cause life gets hard sometimes
    And I just need a place to get away
    So turn the world around
    I’m never coming down
    ‘Cause I don’t ever wanna hit
    Don’t wanna hit the ground
    Ground, ground
    Ooohh
    I don’t wanna hit the ground (2x)
    Ooooooohhhhh

    Refrain:
    What do you say when you can’t look down
    When you feel like you’re ten feet off the ground
    What do you do when you’re on the edge
    Now you’re here and you got me thinking ’bout
    Parachutes and airplanes
    Thinking about
    Parachutes and airplanes
    Yeah, yeah, woooah

    {What do you say when you can’t look down
    When you feel like you’re ten feet off the ground}
    What do you do when you’re on the edge
    Now you’re here and you got me thinking ’bout
    Parachutes and airplanes
    Thinking about
    Parachutes and airplanes
    We’ll never hit the ground, ground, ground, ground
    Never hit the ground, ground, ground, ground

    He is so sweet to dedicate this to his sister, Claudia :)

    Nicely done Mr. Archuleta. Similar theme to ZG but different approach. Very radio-friendly, an ear-worm. And I reeeeeally like his rich falsetto in the refrain. Can you just imagine the MTV. Am getting giddy imagining the interplay of scribbles, drawings, cliffs, clouds, bubble thoughts and real-life David. My goodness the MTV for this should be fabulous!

    Please JIVE — IF this will be the single, please make a creative MTV for it, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaase.

    If not -- which is the likely thing -- am still liking the direction David’s sound is heading.

    JR, when you have time, would you mind trimming Starrynite Monica’s version of Be Still, My Soul of the verbiage? I love the banter but want the song only for a CD. Thanks--assuming you won’t mind doing it for us.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0kbtQ5R5lk

    Btw, I was there for both Rexburg book signings (Thursday and after the concert) and at the concert (seated in row 2). What a blessing to have that experience! I must say, the concert was OUT OF THIS WORLD! Almost surreal, it was sooo incredibly good. Can’t talk about it now, though. I’m in the midst of some serious Archuwithdrawals.

    Howdy!

    FINALLY we have new videos of a new performance!!! And what’s even more cool is that David said the album MIGHT be coming out in late September, with the tour soon following, so I’m planning my trip to the US to happen by the end of the year. YAY!

    Also, I had my article published over at snowangelz -- I’m so excited and proud :) It’s a big deal for me. Here’s a small part of the article, in regards to Be Still My Soul.

    “P.S. Be Still My Soul (originally named Finlandia Hymni) was composed by Jean Sibelius, a world-famous Finnish artist. A few years ago Finland was actually considering changing the Finnish National Anthem, called Maamme, to the Finlandia Hymni, because Estonia has the same anthem as Finland does. One of the reasons was also, that Finlandia Hymni represents Finland’s survival through the continuation war (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continuation_War), that was part of World War II. Here is the original, Finnish version of the hymn.

    David’s emotional interpretation of the song was…. enough to make me speechless. The tears flowing from under his long, black lashes down his caramel-coloured, flawless skin is a sight so beautiful it makes my heart ache. The song came from his soul and ended up right into mine.”

    Hello all!

    I just heard the 2 new songs and I really like them! I especially like NAVGL and it’s very catchy -- he got the crowd singing along and it was the first time they had heard it!

    At the same time I’m hoping that the album will have some variety of styles, given that we’ve heard 3 midtempo pop songs so far.

    I have no idea what it means that we’re hearing these songs before the album comes out -- does that mean they are probably going to be on the album and they’re gauging fan reaction? Or are they on the cutting-room floor and they figured it does them no harm to perform it now? I have no idea!

    I’ve been MIA lately with a trial going on and 3 other major cases that I have to keep track of. And I’ve fixated on another obsession lately, and can you believe it’s Guitar Hero? LOL. (I can’t believe David can play that game on Expert mode. The dude is BOSS.)

    Ah! A great review “)

    WHY THE HYPE??
    28-year-old male: Archuleta craze not irrational

    I’m a 28-year-old male. My musical tastes include Keane, U2, They Might Be Giants, Regina Spektor and Broadway soundtracks. I am not what I would have called a typical David Archuleta fan. And even though I have interviewed him twice, and met him twice more, I had never, until Saturday night, heard a single song sung by him.

    I interview a lot of artists and bands, and most of these interviews come with the opportunity to attend their respective concerts, take photos for the paper, etc. I rarely attend these events, mostly due to time. However, I so enjoyed my interactions with Archuleta this past week that I decided to take my wife to his concert.

    “Why did I do this?” I asked myself as I sat through a particularly not enjoyable pre-show. When the screaming started (true to Archuleta’s own words, the loudest he’s ever heard) I was even more outside of my comfort zone. Thankfully, I was “taking pictures for the paper,” which made my front and center position less awkward and noticeable.

    But what was my surprise when this “American Idol” star, an accolade I often scoff at, opened with what I can only describe as a fun, truly enjoyable song. And lo, the second song was even better. My expectations of weak vocals and cheesy, teen-pop lyrics fled, and I sat back to enjoy the show.

    But more impressive to me than his performance were the traits he exhibited in our interaction during the week, the very traits that prompted me to attend his concert.

    For the rest of the story —

    Marlie7 #57,
    It’s a shame I’ve been away,
    And at trial I haven’t even
    Been as feisty as you say.

    Cause you see I cannot rhyme
    While I’m standing ‘fore a judge.
    Better uses for my time
    Than to have her bear a grudge.

    Not much time for TDC,
    And that is my regret.
    Although here I’d rather be,
    The trial’s not over yet.

    But today I’ve been around,
    Cause David’s got new songs.
    So great to hear new sounds
    After a drought that’s been so long.

    So I’ll come back when I can!
    And though you might have doubt,
    You’ll see me here again
    When the single’s finally out!

I can’t help but flail at the July 4th gig! That will be broadcasted worldwide. All will hear him siiiiiiiiiing. Parachutes and Aiiiiiiiiiiiirplanes!

    Breaking David Archuleta news!
    Updated on Jun 22, 2010 11:18AM 0 Comments

    The Associated Press has this exciting bit of David Archuleta news:

    “American Idol” runner-up David Archuleta and Gladys Knight will perform at the annual July Fourth holiday concert in Washington.

    “A Capitol Fourth” will be broadcast live from the west lawn of the Capitol at 8 p.m. on PBS stations.

    Actor Jimmy Smits is hosting the event. Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker and the National Symphony Orchestra are also scheduled to perform.

    The 19-year-old Archuleta was the 2008 “American Idol” runner-up. He’ll sing the National Anthem -- a song he says he loves to perform.

    So yesterday David tweets “Off to LA today” and today he tweets “Just got into New York”. Either he was confused about where he was going, or he is jet-setting around the country at break-neck speed. Poor guy!

    I wonder how the make-up peeps and hair stylists can keep their hands steady while working on him. Let alone finish the job

    I mean, the PROXIMITY! The access… I’d probably never finish as I will keep on gazing at him… sigh

    Lucky guys.

    What gives me the gigglies (haha -- is that even word?!) is the favorable reaction to his news songs -- across the board. And they are only candidates for the album.

    Since he has more leeway with his sophomore offering, the prognosis for the chosen tracks is very promising.

    12 more days -- gah!

    David Archuleta says his ‘life is in the Lord’s hands’

    OREM, Utah — David Archuleta’s favorite day is Sunday.

    He can relax and listen to some music. He says it’s a perfect time to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

    And for Archuleta, being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a plus.

    “My life is in the Lord’s hands,” he says. “Even in the toughest times, I know he is there.”

    Archuleta, with his angelic smile and sweet nature, was at the Deseret Book store in Orem recently to sing and sign copies of his recently released book, “Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song and the Power of Perseverance.” The “American Idol” runner-up drew a crowd of admirers as he talked — in Spanish — to the Deseret News.

    At the age of 19, he composes, performs, writes and presents concerts. Some might say he is a phenomenon, not only musical, but in organizing and responding to his multiple responsibilities.

    People have said that he is missing out on his youth — living as an adult, not as a young man.

    But Archuleta responds emphatically …

    I like the new song -- as far as the preview lets you hear it. It has a Zero Gravity feel to it and I always thought releasing that song as a single would have made for some good radio play for David. I think we are going to hear a lot of variety on this next CD. I’m looking forward to it -- and a good quality recording of this single 😉

    From Snarkies

    Something ‘Bout Love

    Every night it’s all the same
    You’re frozen by the phone
    You wait..something’s changed
    You blame yourself everyday
    You do it again
    Every night

    There’s something ’bout love
    That breaks your heart
    Whoa oh oh oh
    It sets you free

    There’s something ’bout love
    That sets you up
    Whoa oh oh oh
    If you believe
    When the world comes down like the rain (?)
    It’ll bring you to your knees
    There’s something ’bout love that breaks your heart
    Whoa oh oh oh…
