Happy Anniversary Crush Music Video!
From Wikepedia (I found this summary interesting):
The music video was directed by Declan Whitebloom. The music video was first leaked on September 7, 2008, through AOL, initially restricted to Canada and then released on September 16, 2008, on iTunes. The video now has over 30 million hits on YouTube.
It consists of Archuleta on a vacation trying to get the attention of a girl (played by Hagood Coxe) on whom he apparently has a crush. At the beginning, several teens go swimming in the lake near their summer house, with one of the guys flirting with the girl in the water. After they have finished swimming, the guy runs off, while Archuleta stays behind to help the girl out of the lake.
The group is also shown in a cabin playing a game involving post its, while Archuleta is also shown playing his guitar in the cabin. Another scene shows the group by a campfire with several of them paired off into couples. At the end, Archuleta goes out on the deck of the cabin, and the girl follows him out, showing that she shares his feelings. Archuleta is also shown playing thepiano near a lake throughout the video.

It never gets old, this little song that could. This was the first time we got to see David ‘act’ in a MV format, and we liked what we saw!
OVER 35 MILLION VIEWS!
…. and remember all the voting we all did at VH1? How could these fingers forget. I think I can still remember the pattern of movement of the face into the box!
This segment below shows the very first time an artist (read David Archuleta) appeared on VH1 to introduce their No. 1 Music Video. I forgot about this interview until recently. Watch all the way through 🙂

It’s Sunday, time for a solemn performance by David Archuleta. My pick this week: Fields of Gold from the first show in Salt Lake City during the Christmas from the Heart tour. Thanks Tina @rhiminee.
This is so stunning, it cool to not even watch the vid (I know, I know)….jut listen. Listen to Steve Fekete’s masterful guitar playing too. This is a feast for the ears.
What a wonderful interpretation for a silent, solemn Sunday. Enjoy your day everyone. I’ll be back tomorrow…..
