three-davids-211Although there are literally dozens and dozens of songs I think of David applying his magic to, I am most impressed with the soulful side of David. It’s not often enough for me that he’s given an opportunity to explore that side of himself.

We saw a sneak peak of it at the Reno Works For Me, that soulful bluesy voice … with the moves to go with it. That being said .. my submission is Smokey Robinson’s Cruisin. It was also revived in Duets with Huey and Gwen, and I thought they did a great job with it … but it was nothing compared to what David could do with it.

I think LIVE, David could set the place on fire. It doesn’t require him to bounce all over the stage … it does require SOUL … and David has that TEN FOLD.
So close your eyes … and imagine what Mr. Archuleta could do with a classic like this.

Cruisin’
by Smokey Robinson

Baby let’s cruise, away from here
Don’t be confused, the way is clear
& if you want it you got it forever
This is not a one night stand, baby, yeah so

Let the music take your mind, ooh
Just release & you will find
You’re gonna fly away
Glad you’re goin’ my way
I love it when we’re cruisin’ together
The music is played for love,
Cruisin’ is made for love
I love it when we’re cruisin’ together

Baby tonight belongs to us
Everything’s right, do what you must
& inch by inch we get closer & closer
To every little part of each other ooh baby, yeah So

Let the music take your mind
Just release & you will find
You’re gonna fly away
Glad you’re going my way
I love it when we’re cruisin’ together
The music is played for love,
Cruisin’ is made for love
I love it when we’re cruisin’ together

Cruise with me baby
Cruise

Baby let’s cruise
Let’s flow, let’s glide
Ooooh let’s open up, & go inside
& if you want it you got it forever
I can just stay there inside you
& love you baby,

Let the music, take your mind
Just release & you will find
You’re gonna fly (away)
Yeah, I’m glad you’re going my way
I love it, when we’re cruisin together
