It Might Get Loud

Let’s have a little fun, shall we? Let’s talk about David and some iconic musicians from days gone by, how about ….Bob Dylan? The voice and the voice? Dang, I tried that already and it didn’t go over big. OK, it’s a stretch. This time I have a closer match~ Jimmy Page……… One ...

A Heartfelt Thank You

Today is the third anniversary of the death of my husband. It is with a grateful heart that my children and I spend this and every day. We are surrounded by God’s love and have been blessed by great healing. The journey out of the grief of loss has been paved with the help of ...

Play for the Long Haul

I am a life long Yankee fan. I bleed Yankee blue. Go Yanks!….(You are on the wrong blog happy, this is a David Archuleta blog….) OK, I’ll get right to the connection.  The Yankees have a closer by the name of Mariano Rivera. It is widely recognized that the Yankee franchise owes a considerable chunk of ...

Raindrops and Heart-Shaped Rain

There I stand, in misty rain in the muddy outfield listening to the Poet Laureate of Rock and Roll. This night’s arrangements are remarkably recognizable, not that it’s important, just…unusual. The band is pure genius. Pure and simple. He’s rearranged his songs so often that even he has lost track. He and the band keep ...

Leave the Rest

I’m done. That’s it. I’ve decided for David, and I hope he listens to me. “Forget the hype. Forget the fanfare. Lose the distractions. Do what you do, and leave the rest, because what you do is extraordinary.”  I understand that he is a young man. Young. I get that, and I am happy for him. ...

Sunshine and the Lava Bomb

“My heart’s still pounding, David. I’ve got chills up and down my arms. The sun’s never going to go down on you because you bring out so much sunshine in everyone throughout the whole world through your singing. And, David, that was a beautiful, beautiful stunning performance.” This was Paula Abdul’s typically gushy comment after ...

Songs in the Key of David

Mr. Archuleta, a few weeks ago, it was suggested here on TDC that the song Candy Man, made famous by Sammy Davis, Jr., fit your public persona. Well OK, but rather, …ummmm. No. Not for me. For me, the lyrics are too sweet. Too cliché. Too rainbowy. You are much more….oh, something else. Inspired, I moseyed ...

According to her website, Ms. Goodwin “is the leading rock photographer of this generation. Her striking and atmospheric images capture the true soul of the musician.

To Twitter or Not to Twitter

To Twitter or not to Twitter, that is the question. The revelation of David’s recent Twitter “follower” brought up an interesting discussion on TDC today, much of which is reprinted here. Happy, freo and TOfan weigh in below. How about you? … Do you Twitter? Happy: Many Twitter-haters like me hate Twitter in large part because ...

Music Reborn

Spring is upon us. Life. Death. Rebirth. From the smallest cell to the largest star, the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth is repeated. The rising of the sun at dawn, the blazing heat of midday, the setting sun … everything must die to rise again. This cycle is part of the continuous process of change; the ebb ...
