Amidst the craziness of the world, I thought I would use this quote today. 

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and evil, and for a time, it seems invincible, but in the end, it always fails. Think of it–always.”

 ― Mahatma Gandthi

Everybody Hurts Music Video is Buzz-ilicious!

The mentions keep coming, including from a number of radio stations, including a number of CBS local stations.

Read the first one about some of the intended meaning of EH, directly from R.E.M

Before David Archuleta headed out on histwo-year mission with The Church of Latter Day Saints, he recorded a cover of REM’s“Everybody Hurts,” complete with an orchestra.

“I hope you know that I never wanted to leave you guys without music, and will continue when I get back,” Archuleta said on his website about the cover, which appears on his recently released album, BEGIN.

The video, which features the American Idol runner-up recording in the studio, focuses on those going on their own missions from a young couple separating for college to an armed servicewoman serving in the Middle East to a father whose daughter is getting married.

The original by REM off of their 1992 album, Automatic For the People, was also meant to be optimistic and written for those contemplating suicide, telling those struggling to never give up.

Though Michael Stipe has always been evasive about the song’s meaning and known to change the lyrics of his songs on a regular basis, in 2001 the Nevada Assembly praised the band for “encouraging the prevention of teen suicides,” specifically mentioning “Everybody Hurts.”

Guitarist Peter Buck did admit to the BBC in 2005 that even he didn’t really know what Stipe intended to say with the song.

“I remember Michael saying something to the effect that he wanted younger people to not have to worry about metaphors,” he said. “The only metaphor is in the bridge: ‘throw your hand’, which is a card-game metaphor”.

No matter what the song is about though, the band understands that “Everybody Hurts” is a song that is very meaningful to many different people.

“We’ve tended to license the song out for free to charity,” Buck told the BBC.

The song was recently used as a charity single for Haiti after the devastating earthquakes that happened there in 2010.

 There are so many more! Tampa, Pittsburgh, Abiline, Grand Junction, Duluth, Fort Worth, Washington ……..

I could go on and on!  Take a look at a few more (I see a David Archuletta in there lol).

    OoO @ 3:09. I concur. Some complained the Forevermore / NGA videos were too simple. Now we have one with more depth/emotions/ meanings and some are still not happy. I for one am thrilled at ANTTHING David gives us. JMHO

    Wow, Manila does know how to launch a CD!

  14. grammyj says:

    From previous post
    I like David’s video for EH, but OoO, it is perfectly okay for fans to have differing opinions of it. It takes nothing away from David. That’s part of art – some will love it and some won’t. Pretty much everyone loves David’s vocals but some just wanted a different storyline for the video. It’s fun to discuss what we like and what some people think should have been different. It’s better than having nothing to talk about except how David’s doing on some poll. I’ve enjoyed the discussion.

  15. Hello everyone! RAIN here at the beach again…YUK! But listening to forevermore and BEGIN. helps put a smile on my face!

    THANKS Pastel of a SUPER post! LOVE all the BUZZ for David, BEGIN. and the Everybody Hurts MV! Was in on the trending party last night…WW TT#4! The Philippines sure knows how to PROMOTE! Still haven’t found an album here at the beach…Walmart’s date for in store copies has been moved back to the 30th!

    sarahhazel….Thanks for bringing the links over…LOVE reading all the positive comments and tweets! Also think we are the luckiest fans in the world! Who would have thought we’d have all these AMAZING songs, MVs , pics and tweets1 Could have been so different…ENJOY!

  18. kimk says:

    my favorite part of the music video is David singing in the studio.. I cannot wait until he returns and we get to see him LIVE again!!

    as for the EH being very simple, some have used the term ‘Hallmark’.. it makes sense. I don’t see anything coming out that would be what the music biz is putting out these days.. and that is ok. David is a lds missionary right now so it makes sense and
    Deseret Books has been very supportive of David so way I look at it.. it works for me!
    do hope all of what they recorded of him singing in the studio pops up one day!!
    miss him a real lot!!

  19. kimk says:

    my only question is can we have one of these for each and every song off of BEGIN!!!! :D

  29. ksf says:

    grammyj – I completely agree. Well said.

    Btw, I had a question that maybe someone who is LDS can answer. From the research I’ve done one of the Mormon beliefs is that God was once a man and that after death anyone (men) can become a god who rules over their own planet. Is this true? PLEASE DO NOT ANSWER HERE. Instead please DM me on twitter @Keisa_Fruge or you can email me at lakeisaf@yahoo.com.

  30. ray says:

    atx,and OoO i agree with you guys,he worked his tail,and voice to thr bones,could have left nothing, its enouge for non fans to net pick,but fans don,t have to do it also. .glad that david will never see this crap.,just don,t get it.sorry for ranting have a nice day,

  31. bychance says:

    Love, love, LOVE, the pic in the white shirt! Wish we had that here….but then, the Philippine fans deserve it, they support David so well! Thank you to all of them!

    Have a great day everyone!

  32. kimk says:

    VABeach omgosh if we were to get more of these.. GAH!!
    HIS VOICE in this video is my fav if I really think about it. when you see him sing it live you see all the emotion he puts into the song.
    also noticed and not sure if you saw it.. (I am seeing things) he is looking very nice.. hmm older!!?
    anybody else see that.. quite the hunk!

  33. kimk says:

    David’s Broken is #1 on the Wise Radio Poll!!!!!!!

    VOTE!

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wise-Radio/181618691893576?sk=app_208195102528120

  34. kimk says:

    hmm having a hard time viewing the Wise poll.. did get to vote once!

  35. kimk says:

    bychance I would so move there if I could.. they love him there!! David even seems to let loose there as opposed to here in the states.. kind of stuffy but I guess he has to?
    got me why but hope when he gets back he lets his hair grow long and free!
    kind of like Richard is doing now!!! :)

  36. Good morning everyone. Nice post Pastel, love that we are still getting a lot of buzz. And radio stations at that.
    Kimk, i agree David is starting to look older, but still as cute as ever. I loved him singing in the studio and to see his emotions when he sings. Love the EH MV.
    The Phils really know how to celebrate. Wish i could have been there too.
    David has done so much for us, He worked long hard hours and i for one say THANK YOU DAVID, from the bottom of my heart.
    WOW! we trended WWTT #4 last night. Love when we that.
    Ray i like what you said. Thank you.

  37. nora says:

    bychance-I agree with you, the fans there support David in a way that he isn’t supported by Fans here.(not meaning fans here) I think it has to do with their culture, and the type of person David is and the type of music he sings. They just Love him there. I wish our stores had that many cds of their shelves, maybe they knew more fans there would buy his music. We just have to thank them for their support of him. JMO

  38. kimk says:

    Linda first time I saw the video I noticed it.. hmm I think it was the young couple on the video that brought it to my attention. he looks older then them.. oh and outrageously good!
    I keep watching the video just to see glimpses of him!!
    gorgeous!!!

  39. bychance says:

    kimk…..yeah, he seems more relaxed and confident there. But don’t we all when we feel really loved….like he is there? I’m just so thankful that they give him that much love!! He deserves it!

    Don’t know about the hair…lol….pretty happy the way it is…….. when it’s styled like is is for pics, anyway. He is one handsome guy either way!

    I’m off to normal life….BBL

  40. BBL, have errands to run.

  41. bychance says:

    nora….so agree about the culture and the type of person David is….maybe we should ALL move there!

    Now I’m really off!

  42. kimk says:

    bychance I guess that might be why because he feels more confident there? hope that his time away lets him realize that no matter where he is if he exudes a confidence about him the rest will follow? oh and by the way I already think he has started that.. saw it on the MKOC tour. as for music these days I think
    folks here in the states go for more the edgy kind of thing.. not necessarily ott just cool?
    Jason Mraz is a great example for something David would be perfect with.

  43. breanne says:

    Broken was #1 on @WISE_RADIO’s Music Challenge this week. They let a song stay at #1 for 3 weeks. Let’s keep him at the #1 spot for 2 more weeks!! Vote on the link that Kim listed on her 10:52 comment.

  51. SueH (SoCal) says:

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet…but I am SO excited! Just saw that KYXY 96.5 in San Diego has posted Everybody Hurts video, along with a short article about David & the song’s background! AND his picture is on the front of the Music page! WOOHOO! :D

    http://kyxy.cbslocal.com/2012/08/24/covered-david-archuleta-does-r-e-m-s-everybody-hurts/

  52. Sue (Socal) Hi! That is great news, thanks for sharing. Good to hear from you here on FOD.

  53. Kimk, that is too funny. I am amazed at the promos and buzzes that Davids EH Video and BEGIN album is receiving. Love it!

  54. SueH (SoCal) says:

    Hi Linda and everyone! I’ve been trying to do a little promo…sending out a few emails to the Temecula & San Diego radio stations, requesting they post the MV & play the song…since we get lots of stations here. Ready to tackle L.A. stations too. Started back to work/school so, time is short during the week. Hoping San Diego gets on board and starts playing his songs more!

  55. Sue H ( SoCal ) your doing a great job promoting David. My small radio station here at home already plays songs From David BEGIN album, not all yet but eventually. I’m lucky he is a likes Davids music and that i knew him, so i promoted. Love hearing his music on the radio when i am working.

  56. kimk says:

    Linda love they have it playing in the movies.. almost makes me want to go!!

  57. SueH (SoCal) says:

    Linda…happy that your radio station plays his songs…that must be awesome to hear them played on your hometown station! Going to help hubby with a few things today…will check back later! Hope everyone has a great day! :)

  58. Kimk, are they playing the promo for BEGIN all over the states in the movies or just UTAH?

  59. I need to leave for a few minutes to give FOREVER MORE MV. ING MV. & EH MV. some views. BB in a few mins.

  60. Afternoon Everyone :)
    Pastel, the “EYES” have it in that pic up top…for that matter you can throw in the DIMPLES, THE SMILE, THE HAIR, THE FACIAL EXPRESSION hahaha OK…I’ve said too much!!! LOL

    BOY,OH BOY!!!!!! The FilipinoArchies really have something to squeeeee over…the MEGA PROMO FOR DAVID’S BEGIN. WAS ASTOUNDING!!!!

    Love, Love, Love the 3 winning OS pix. It’s nice to know he’s recognized far and wide.

    Kimk, welcome back from your grandbaby lovefest…a munchkin or munchkinette? I loved your post at 1:13 PM. I had a similar experience yesterday. Here’s my comment:

    BTW………A FUNNY THING HAPPENED TO ME WHILE IN THE AMC THEATRE BATHROOM IN THE GARDEN STATE PLAZA IN NORTH JERSEY AFTER A MOVIE!!!! A voice comes over the sound system talking about a new album release…I FREAK OUT…OMG…HE SAID DAVID ARCHULETA!!!!! Now, I start hearing Beautiful but I’m still in the stall praying that the auto flush doesn’t drown out the song hahaha. SOOOOOO, I barely wash my hands run out of the bathroom with arms flailing to report to my hubby that David is singing. He doesn’t know what to think about my strange behavior. I’m laughing and giggling all at the same time. He finally hears the song and comments, “Oh, that’s what it’s all about.” I couldn’t believe you could hear David out in the mall for a bit. Of course, all my husband can think of was finding a Chili’s in the mall

  61. Idamae. What a story, don’t know how i would have reacted but i can tell you it would have been wild.

  62. kimk says:

    Idamae omgosh.. lol I would of freaked out!!

    oh my a tear jerker!!
    love!

    Monse ‏@HeyImMonse
    My new @DavidArchie video is now up!
    http://youtu.be/qUvC650sJSU

  63. kimk says:

    Linda I think they are.. at AMC theaters!!! :))))))

  64. Furious says:

    Wow. I wish David would have left everyone for 2 years with nothing. Then you could have something to legitimately complain about. Some people are just not happy with anything. He worked his tiny a** off for you guys and you find stuff to still complain about. Disgusting.

  65. nora says:

    just checked YT and Crush now has over 35 million views, last time I checked didn’t have that many. EBH video has over 59,ooo views. Now if I could just get my radio stations just to post anything about BEGIN, I would be happy, but I’ll keep on trying.

  66. kimk says:

    was thinking.. lol it has been a WHOLE WEEK!!
    unless a David project was done before he left on his mission I think they will be for the most part team generated like the EH video? I don’t think David will be able to go over what is released and such.
    going to enjoy to the max what we do get
    cause it could of been we got nothing for these two years.
    and boy would that stink!!

    now after he gets back.. that is a whole different story!
    ha then I say.. let your hair down David and go for it!

  67. kimk says:

    nora would love to hear Broken.. has such a cool vibe to it! not sure if they would cause it mentions Invisible Children. not sure radio stations play ’cause’ songs?

  68. kimk says:

    @LozUKArchie just walked into Deseret Books in Vegas and @DavidArchie’s Broken is playing.Guess I’m picking up a copy or two <or 3 or 4?

  69. nora says:

    kimk-I agree about the radio stations and Broken. It is such a beautiful song and David’s voice is beyond beautiful. Does my heart good to hear when somebody hears David singing something from BEGIN that they stop and listen and pick up a copy or 2 or 3. Maybe that would happen if we could hear something from it on our radio stations. I can always hope can’t I? I think I would faint if they did.

  70. kimk says:

    Furious folks aren’t saying anything too much..just speaking how they feel. like the I’ll Never Go vid for instance. I freaked out when I saw it. him packing and such was so sad.
    as for EH.. I like this one might not be edgy what folks here in the states like but it is sweet like David. not too sad.
    from day one folks gab about David and what he does and always will.
    rofl folks were slamming his Crush vid cause it looked like he was looking at a guy. now that was rediculous.

  71. kimk says:

    nora lol I know.. no DB stores by me!!

  72. It should be very interesting to see what direction David will go, musically speaking, when he gets back. I think his having to depend on his own instincts, intuition and inate ability when dealing with people and situations on his mission will allow his inner confidence to surface even more. This will help him deal with the issue of coming of age musically, to push the envelope, have faith in his ability to connect and lose some of his inhibitions. I know he has it in him…ex. the Guitar Hero promo, No air duet, NA, Drummer Boy, THE DOUGIE etc. There’s an interesting TV commercial that reminds me of David’s situation. It shows 2 guys who are non-spanish speakers renting a car that only has a “How to” tape to listen to. You hear them repeating the simplest of phrases quite badly. Well, by the time the road trip is over they are arguing with each other in perfect Spanish!

  73. kimk says:

    talk about rediculous..just read that they offered Katy Perry $20 million to judge Idol.. and she turned it down!!
    did offer Keith Urban 4.. hope he takes it I like him!

    Got a heads up at the launch that Everybody Hurts MV will premiere on http://myxph.com on Wednesday.

  75. kimk says:

    oops.. ridiculous. sorry don’t have spell checker on.
    but I should!

  76. kimk says:

    idamae was just thinking about all that! he could go in so many directions sure is talented enough to!
    hope some Spanish in there!!

  77. I Tweeted Lorm, about the Rainbow Video, if she heard when it will be coming out too. No answer yet.

  78. Amanda Jane says:

    Watched the vid linked by kimk at 255 and one of the clips was of PandA from Rexburg; that is vid I have not watched in a long time but DANG. :) <3.

    So for your enjoyment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwADbsmrHuk

  79. kimk says:

    Linda I think Kari said wait til after Begin? don’t know what that means.
    excited for that one.. DAVID IS DANCING!!!!!!! :shock:

  80. kimk says:

    :shock:

    Patty-Ann ‏@pabuckie
    there’s something about David and walls. lol

    http://twitpic.com/anodw7

    umm.. I would call that edgy.

  81. kimk, you’re probably going to think I’m crazy but in certain Rainbow screenshotsDavid reminds me of a young Sir Paul…either it’s a look or an expression or both …DK!!!

  82. josie says:

    Furious~ Um, if you’re referring to me, I wasn’t complaining. jsyk. :)

  83. kimk says:

    idamae lol I am crazy not you! AGREE!!
    we were even talking how Broken kind of reminds us some of MJ today!!

  84. Rapport says:

    C’mon fodulites, raise your hands if you shed a tear when you first watched and listened to the MV for ‘Everybody Hurts’. I did. Even if you only dabbed a little moisture from the corners of your eyes, this storyline did its job. It made you “feel”, and that is exactly what David Archuleta seeks in his song choices. It made you “engage” in dialogue, and that is exactly what David Archuleta seeks in his service to humanity.

    Like it your not, paired with his oh-so-emotive voice and big-as-Utah heart and soul, David’s cover blows the original away. Everybody is “feeling” David. And that is a good thing.

  85. Kimk, I see a “come hither” look hmmm :)

  86. Rapport, i did, i shed a tear at the very beginning. I am a softy anyway, but watching those three scenes and David singing did me in.

  87. Amanda Jane says:

    I forgot to say hi above :). Hi folks! Hope everyone’s having a good weekend.

    I’m not sure I ever commented on it, but I ADORE the EH vid. It’s beautifully shot; I just love when you see the bride’s veil through the doorway when we first see her.

    And in regards to criticism about the vid; we’re all going to like different things. That’s OK. All that matters to me is that we appreciate David’s hardwork and love him for it, regardless of our opinions of it’s content.

    That being said, I also revisited the SBL vid today and I forgot just how much I love that song/vid. <3

  88. kimk says:

    Idamae umm yuppers!! :)

    Rapport I like the video.. my fav scenario is the army one. I love they had a lady soldier missing her boy.
    did I cry no but lol I was in a closet viewing it on my phone.. long story.
    all in all I think David’s team did a great job considering no David around!

    I think Crush is my fav music video of his still to this day and Wait is his most edgy. still can’t figure out what that one is about.
    love the broken glass effect!

    this one does play like a Hallmark card.. but that is David.
    darn he is a whole Hallmark store!!

  89. Martha says:

    Jeffrey Christian‏@jeffreychrist

    http://goo.gl/4fR1f Gorgeously sung version of Peter Gabriel/Kate Bush classic DON’T GIVE UP by David Archuleta and Libbie Linton. Wow

  90. Just wondering what a MV for Broken would look like…it boggles the mind. The lyrics are so intriguing and his falsettos are other worldly.

  91. Amanda Jane says:

    Rapport ~ I can cry at the drop of the first few notes of EH on my iPod, so yeah. :) I mean not always, but on days I’m tired from work and life, yeah. It hits me hard.

    And I love what you said about David’s “service to humanity” because that is exactly what he’s doing, whether he’s out on his mission or touring/recording. It’s unreal the positive impact he has on our lives, but I’m so thankful for it. <3 :)

  92. Kimk, ROTFLOL about the closet. I think we all need one from time to time HA!!!

    You go, Jeffrey Christian!!!!!!!

  93. Rapport says:

    Oops! That should read: Like it or not. And we are Fodulites, not fodulites!

    Who is this grammar freak?

  94. Amanda Jane, i agree with rapport and you about Davids service to humanity, whether , on his mission our just touring. David seems to always be on a mission whether he knows it or not. JMO!

  95. kimk says:

    Idamae lol yeah I had to watch it while I was away. and first thing (even though it was 2 am last night) I did when I got home was to turn on my computer and watch it with headphones on as loud as I could!
    was beautiful.. also love the young couple when they blur out the pic some. nice!
    but I would have to say I love to watch David sing first and foremost. something about him the way he seems to feel what he sings?! gah!

  96. Rapport says:

    kimk, I liked that they told the military story from a female point of view, too. That got me right from the beginning, but when her boy touches her face at the end, well, I was blubbering.

    If this kind of buzz for David can be sustained, or even cascaded, there will be no need for David to jumpstart anything. Everyone will be clamoring for him to perform. It’s as simple as that and I am convinced I am not off the mark on this one.

  97. Kimk, I found there’s a lot of ying and yang symbolism in “Wait.”

    Rapport, the EH MV did affect me emotionally, especially the female soldier’s scenario, i guess cuz it’s so current. David’s incredible vocals flowed beautifully from one story line to the others.

  98. Rapport, I pray that your mark is right on too. He has created quite a buzz with this album and the EH video. Hope it keeps going a little longer. I’m sure there is more of David to come.

  99. kimk says:

    Rapport I liked that too.. and agree if all this buzz keeps up there should be no problem him getting back into things.
    as for fans/folks discussing the video.. pros and cons all work to achieve a lot of buzz for him and I
    think every video he has ever done there has been buzz/discussions in one way or another.
    as a matter of fact if we don’t talk about it that may be a kiss of death in a way?
    keep the fires burning for the guy til he comes back.. know I plan to!

  100. kimk says:

    idamae there sure was.. oh and he looked great in it too!!

  101. josie says:

    Hm. I feel like I need to explain myself. Which never works. But oh well. I just spent 2 hours arguing w/a shoe salesman, so I’m gonna say what I’m thinking today. lol. I love the MV storylines, how they’re intertwined w/David putting his heart out there & the orchestra building~ it’s very moving, & I keep re-playing it. I’m just sayin’…Except for David, I don’t follow artists, watch MVs, or listen to secular songs like EH. They’re not part of my life; they don’t interest me. So for me to take notice, they have to blow me away. David himself ALWAYS blows me away. I just want whatever/whoever he’s working with to be up to par with HIM. If that makes sense.

  102. breanne says:

    Everybody Hurts song & mv & also Broken bring tears to my eyes!! David has a way of singing a song and just wrapping it around your heart! *sigh* I’m so happy for the Philippine fans today!!

  103. Elysian says:

    Pastel- Thank for another FANTASTIC post this lovely day! I love seeing how the Pinoy fans always pull out all of the stops in promoting David! Seeing so many BEGIN CDs at one time makes me soooooo happy! If only stores here carried even a fraction of that amount!

    The fact that so many news outlets are taking note of the Everybody Hurts video is wonderful, and deservedly so. I too hope, as kimk said earlier, that we get a MV for each song on BEGIN. That would be AMAZING!! :smile:

  104. Elysian says:

    Just stopped by for a second between errands. Have to go buy a cake for my brother’s birthday tonight so have a great weekend everyone!

  105. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Rapport: Raises hand on that one. Definite tears on the cheeks. I think the tear envoking moments were the military woman missing her little boy and watching David wing with such pure emotion. I relate to every single story. My dad was in the military so times when he was away was so hard, but having him come home was that sheer joy and tears too. Also, I’m an only girl, so I was and still am a daddy’s girl so that story about the guy being sad at his daughter’s wedding hit home. Being that I’m a military brat I moved so many times in my life and even after my dad was finished with the Navy we moved around a lot. Had to always leave friends behind and even a boyfriend once and a few boys I liked. Hold on to memories, hold on to hope to see your old friends or boyfriend again, hold on to the love of your child to keep you alive.

  106. Anita says:

    Boy, I’m sure late to the party here! When I noticed that a brand new music video of Everybody Hurts was released, Squeeee!!!! What an incredible video that is with all those touching stories! WOW!!! Now we know why Daviod was in the studio one last time, the day before he left, to record his parts of the video. I’m soooo very thankful to David and also those who helped him put this video together. It’s certainly one of David’s best! I still have a ways to go to get through all this week’s amaaaazing posts. I’ve been pretty busy this week. Thanks Pastel for the incredible job you’ve done all week! It’s so greatly appreciated!!! I’m really loving the display the Philippines has with posters, pictures, and CD’s galore! Now, that’s more like it! I went to Walmart the other day, and had to check again if BEGIN. was there. They only had one CD, but it was displayed above the other CD’s, so it really stood out! Yes, it was only one CD, but it sure put a big smile on my face! I wonder if another fan did that per chance.

  107. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Thanks for the PandA link. I was there that day the first time he sang it and dedicated it to Claudia. Awesome!!!

  108. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Kimk & Patty-Ann something about walls. LOL.

  109. nora says:

    janel-Loved what you had to say about how you could relate to the different story lines in the EH videos. Without hope and love and your memories to hold on to where would we be? I think some people can relate to things and feelings in this video. David’s voice and expressions brought it all home to me. I am so thankful to be a fan of his.

    Rapport-I hope what you said about what will happen when David comes home really does happen, I have enough faith in him and his fans to believe it will 2014 can’t come soon enough. Thanks David for everything that you left for us and how hard you worked to get it done.

  110. Hi all. Went to Barnes and Nobles during my daily Mall walk this morning (about the only form of exercise I do) and there was Begin front and center with only one copy left. Before I used to have to ask for his CDs and they had them behind the counter. So yahoo B & N for doing it right this time! Ordering Christmas From the Heart for more Christmas presents for this year. If anyone is interested Walmart has them online for $7.00! A great gift at a good price!

  111. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Pastel great post. Missed the trending lastt night. Had company all day yesterday and today. Fun but tiring. Rapport , I too am hoping all this good buzz about David’s works will bring him forefront to more people. When he returns he will receive the respect he deserves from the music industry for his “I did it my way” position without compromising his beliefs. kimk, yes he looks more grown up in the video, kilig is the word I believe. Welcome home missed you kimk. I love what we have and thank the Lord for everything that David has given us. More than we ever imagined. Not only that, it is USDA Prime quality!! :grin:

  112. SGJ, i like that USDA prime quality.

  113. Martha says:

    Jake Bentley‏@JakeBentley23

    Check out David Archuleta’s new music video, my uncle totally produced it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UrNy_YtMUo

  114. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda from Cali.. Thanks dear, it just came to me. Funny that DA stands for David Archuleta here. No trending tonight???

  115. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Martha That tweet was great. I love all the buzz. Thanks for that tweet. :grin:

  116. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Kathy/Near Seattle.. Thanks, that’s good news about B&N. The CFTH news is great too.

  117. SGJ, not that i know off. Sometimes they just pop up on tweeter. We will probably trend again soon. Did you see tweet from Lorm, that EH MV will be added to MYX next weds.

  118. I’m always in the mood for Christmas, even in August, when its sunny and hot!

  119. EH MV has had the same views since this morning, i know that they have had more views because i have seen it quite a few times today myself. How often do they update the views?

  120. kimk says:

    Linda I think it is up to over 62,000 views!? :)

  121. Kathy/Near Seattle. remember, David always recorded Christmas music in August. So your spot on.

  122. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda.. I saw lorms tweet. I’m so happy that it will be at myx too.

  123. Kimk , that is a pretty good number right? Its only been 4 days since it came out. I not familiar with #s on views.

  124. bychance says:

    Kathy…..here’s my Christmas wish. CFTH is rereleased with an updated photo (please!) and the addition of a couple of songs from GCT and/or a new one or two that he recored that we don’t know about yet. Yup….that’s what I want for Christmas.

  125. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Thanks Nora!! :)

  126. kimk says:

    Linda it is ok.. not like the average mv but as one where David is away pretty darn great!

  127. bychance says:

    Oh dear…..I just realized that how greedy that sounded. Here he has given us so much and I am asking for more. Scratch that last comment…….I really AM a grateful fan!

  128. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I just realized I typed “wing with pure emotion.” Dang fingers. Meant to type sing. Wing LOLOL.

  129. kimk says:

    Linda will put it this way.. the Rainbow vid pops up him dancing bet the numbers will be huge. fans love these types of vids.
    guess like a bieber or a 1D type vid if I think about it.
    looking forward to that one!

  130. kimk says:

    bychance we love to hear David sing. folks in Chile sure are lucky!!!

  131. Kimk, can hardly wait for Rainbow video. But don’t take me wrong i love Forevermore, EH and ING wasn’t a favorite but i gave it lot of views too. Only because it was too sad.
    Guess we will have to wait for Rainbow, but its ok, Lord knows we have alot of time to wait. *-* : ‘)

  132. bychance says:

    kimk….yes they are!!! Agree with your comment way earlier today, as well! BBL….company coming.

  133. kimk says:

    Linda do like the Forevermore vid.. love him sitting on the ledge.
    not going anywhere.. looking forward to that Rainbow vid and new version of the song!!
    he was so.. jumpy in the gif! hmm
    maybe it will be the new.. ‘Zero Gravity’?!

  134. I wonder what they are going to do with the Matt Clayton photo shoots? I love the one with him squadded looking down.

  135. I hope so. We need something like a jumpy one, to perk us up after all these beautiful videos he did for us. Sorry David, we just need a little jump start.

  136. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    kimk and Linda I love ForevermoreMV and ING MV. All David . David and some more David and his glorious voice. Heaven to me! :grin:

  137. kimk says:

    Linda the Matt Clayton pics have to be for something!!!!!!

  138. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    kimk. The Matt Clayton picture looks like a “Be Still My Soul” picture.

  139. SGJ, i love every song that David has ever sang. I just thought ING song was a little sad because of the fact that he was gone. But as far as the Video goes i like it. I have given it equal spins with all his other videos. *-* : ‘)

  140. SGJ, you may be right! BSMS or BROKEN

  141. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda.. I know you do. I was just stating how I feel about the videos with just David. We all love just looking at home. Just like like going to a movie theater listening to David’s music in the dark, sans the movie. :cool:

  142. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    *him* not home.. holy moly

  143. kimk says:

    I think Kari said the MC pics are not for Begin.. what no clue!!

  144. SGJ, Never in my wildest dreams did i think that David was going to leave us with so much. And there is probably more coming. I wonder if all those fans that have left and will come back when he returns know what they are missing. Hope they come back before he does and catch up with all these gifts he left for us.

    Well it’s time for me to say Happy Trails To You until we meet again. Goodnight everyone. Goodnight David take care.

  152. SGJ, Goodnight, sweet David dreams tonight.

  153. nora says:

    goodnight SGJ sleep tight.
    Did anybody know that Sony Music Entertainment Malaysia is releasing BEGIN in Malaysia on Sept 4?Maybe you already knew that, I thought it was interesting. The fans there are very happy.
    I just listened to a song on YT by Aaron Paul called I’ll Be Waiting, he wrote that song for David’s fans when David was leaving, or when he had already gone, do any of you remember it? It is really beautiful. but it might make you feel sad, it did me.

  154. josie says:

    Ooh. It’s quiet. lol.

  155. Hi! josie, i was just about ready to say goodnight. Calling it an early night. Going to go watch some videos and do some voting.

  156. josie says:

    OK, g’night, Linda. :)

  157. God willing see you tomorrow.

  158. Betty says:

    Janel it worked for me! “Wing” the song had me picture him flying and his voice soaring….right on! B

  159. LINDA – re the Rainbow MV – we have to ride out the BEGIN. promo before that could be released. But Ivory says they have a special plan for it when it comes out :)

    I know that is not the answer you are looking for but trust that the powers-that-be are aware of the wishes of the fandom :)

  160. lct#DA2014 says:

    Questions: Does anyone know if there are still plans to release a NA DVD? To me it’s been one of the best things David’s done. It would be great for the public to see David in a different light. Also….

    Can anyone answer this: Remember when we were trying to push, request, vote, call up DJ’s to get David music on the radio (think starting with ALTNOY) and we were told the same story that he had to have a label to release it or had to hit the top 40 (or was it 100?), yet reading in the comments we see there are DJ’s playing his music from the Begin album or someone heard ALTNOY while they were shopping….. What’s the real story?

    One more…. How is it that this EH MV (which is great) been able to get lots of buzz worldwide and David’s not been here to promote it and we’ve not been able to push others?

    For sure the last Q: We had to get fans in the Phillipines to get us Forevermore because we couldn’t get it here (US) yet Begin is going everywhere! What are the true answers??

  161. Ali says:

    lct – I don’t have the answers to all those questions lol but i can take a stab at a couple. as far as radio goes, top 40 stations are the ones that are/were david’s genre before and it can be quite hard to break new music into that genre. you pretty much have to have a big label push to get prime-time airtime. overnight is a different story as they often play older songs and mixed format. ac stations are a bit more varied in what they play. i’m not sure what format the station(s) are that are playing music from begin. is it just the one station that i’ve seen mentioned here? or are there more? sorry, i’ve been on and off this week and might have missed more mentions.

    a big part of the buzz on the EH vid has been the newsire story that lots of stations have picked up and posted. this is not unusual in that radio stations pick up stories off the entertainment wire to add content to their website. some customize it for their site (adding bits and pieces) but the bulk of the content is pulled straight from the wire. the big question is who put it in the wire. was it deseret? or does the wire service write these on their own? that i don’t know.

    as far as distributing forevermore/begin goes, i think it comes down to david’s ties with sony asia. forevermore was distributed in several asian countries, not just the philippines. it was an import in the US though because he doesn’t have a label here. i have no idea exactly what kind of deal he has with sony asia but they seem to be acting as his label there. when it came to begin, deseret just needed to make a distribution deal with sony asia in order for them to release the album there. obviously there were some details to work out (hence kari’s answer that they were working on it to questions from asian fans on when it would be out in several countries) but they did get it all figured. while i’m not sure exactly what the nature of the deal david has with sony asia is, i’m glad he has those ties. they seem to be very supportive of him.
    as far as begin being available so many places on itunes, once again to my understanding that’s up to deseret. if what i’ve been told is correct, you just have to pay for the music to be licensed for sale in the countries you choose. by “you”, i mean the label. which is deseret or shadow mountain or highway records, whichever name you want to go by lol.
    by this same token, my guess is the decision was made NOT to license forevermore for international sale on itunes given the fact it was an OPM cover album — something that would appeal mainly to a filipino audience. sony philippines probably rightfully felt the demand would not be great enough outside the philippines to offset the cost.

  162. ambber says:

    I have listened to this EH a hundred times already but only watched the video once cause it makes me cry tho I love it very much. I think the video is perfect for this song.
    Love the accompaniment, it is so good. I listened to the original but I like David’s version better.

  163. LCT re NA DVD – A subtitled NA DVD will only come after the series is shown in the US via Dish Network. When will NA be shown in the US? The plan was sometime in July. Not sure why it didn’t push through but when Will Time Big Time had its launch in the US a couple of months ago, NA was one of those bannered as TV5′s flagship programs.

    Hang in there. You guys in the US & elsewhere globally will get NA soon. Just make sure you are subscribed to Dish when the time comes.

  164. kimk says:

    good morning folks!
    I like that.. looking forward to Rainbow!!

    ENJOY YOUR DAY EVERYONE!

  170. josie says:

    lct~ I sent the CD to one of our stations, lol. I know it won’t do much good, but at least they’ll know it exists. lol…I called a second station to get their address, & she said, “You can send the CD if you want, but our stations are corporately owned. Our playlists don’t work off of listener requests. It used to be that way, but competition is so stiff that playlists are set by (paraphrasing) someone off in Never-Never-Land. We do have one station taking requests for one hour each Saturday. They ask listeners to upload songs of new artists. But that’s it…Maybe the privately-owned stations will be more open to accepting requests. You might have better luck with them.” Aaaand…this “corporation” owns most of our stations in town. :)

  171. josie says:

    Oh. That was supposed to be a frown. :(

  172. kimk says:

    josie most radio stations are run that way. if David starts selling a ton folks will take notice and play him like Adele, etc. that also goes for tv shows too for appearances and such.
    maybe when he gets back and in action he can focus on his career and his music and all will fall into place.

  173. josie says:

    kimk~ Are they? I guess I didn’t know that. It explains why they neeeeeever listen to requests. lol.

  174. josie says:

    And it goes back to the same ol’ question. How can anyone “sell a ton” if no one hears their singles on the radio? Mm-kay. Off to run errands. Have a good day. :)

  175. kimk says:

    josie it can happen. he puts out a fabulous new and original cd when he gets back and promotes the heck out of it! lots of appearances would help I bet too. (ha for sure it will help me!)
    especially if he starts being ‘seen’ around again. word will get out how great he is and things will take off.
    but he has to want it?
    also will help if he gets a backer or a label to help him out. a great team can work miracles.
    hmm
    maybe he will restart things by going to the Philippines first? doing some things there might help.
    but I
    think the bottom line is he has to want it all.

    Yes, the radio industry is mostly corporately owned and radio djs are mainly told what to play. Its sad IMHO. It will be interesting to see what David does when he comes back. His best options are to go back to the Phillipineto make money so he can launch a tour here. He is best singing live.

  180. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–LOL…a lot of us won’t be able to understand that!….unless he puts subtitles on it….haha….but then again, how could one focus on reading the STs? ;)

  181. kimk says:

    sarahhazel going to guess he will do something in the Philippines first? can’t wait.. love that they take a lot of pics and videos!!

  182. sarahhazel says:

    grammyj–I wonder what projects (if there are) lined up for him in Asia esp. in the Philippines when he comes back?

  183. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–another TV series or a full-length feature film?…concert?….endorsements?….all of them?…..why not?…..they love him there!

    Josie, Ali, and Jackryan – thanks so much for trying to answer my questions – agree – so how do artists ever sell if they don’t get played?? I think people need to stop listening to the radio – more download music on ipod and buying physical CD’s. :) Yeah not only should we trend David and his music, country by country And trend NO MORE RADIO – except for Linda’s DJ! LOL! :)

  186. kimk says:

    lct I like the radio.. I like current music as well as Davids.

  187. kimk says:

    sarahazel ha don’t forget his… Eau de Crush too!!

  188. Ali says:

    josie brought up a good point that i forgot to mention in my previous post. if the radio stations are privately owned, they have much more leeway on deciding what to play. they still have to program songs that are currently on the charts but they can introduce new stuff and play some older songs along with it. corporate stations are pretty much programmed offsite. even stations that are still technically privately owned are often times “affiliate” stations to corporate — this is a cost saving measure. that means they get a certain percentage of their content from the corporate stations and only have local programming for certain hours of the day (like the morning drive or lunch time).

    kimak – i like radio too. i think i would like it more if they didn’t play the same 10 songs to death though. i mean, if radio can make me sick of adele something is wrong!! lol.

  189. lct#DA2014 says:

    It doesn’t matter to me actually since I don’t get radio reception to and from work so I depend on CD music. I was just being silly!

  190. grammyj says:

    I end up popping in my David cds in the car many times because I am sick of the same song being played over and over plus all the commercials on the radio. Because of ipods many people don’t listen to the rado any more. I believe that David will take a different path in his musical career than being on pop radio.

  191. kimk says:

    agree about them playing the same songs.. why I got myself sirius radio and between the two there is a lot to choose from.
    on 20 On 20 Sirius they even play idol music like Haley Reinhart, Kris Allen and Stefano. if and when
    David gets himself out there bet they will play him too.

    New Thread

    New Thread, see ya there later!

  193. kimk says:

    bet anything the next song they play til folks get sick of it will be Taylor Swifts new song.
    cute and catchy probably why it sold so much but geesh they will play it to death.
    I am even sick of Adele and Gotye now cause they did that with their songs.
