He’s always full of surprises!

– via David Archuleta’s Facebook

Look at that expression!  He knew EXACTLY the kind of chaos this news would cause!  It’s going on five years, and David never ceases to amaze us, impress us and spoil us to pieces!  Love everything about the album cover art – simple and perfect – longish hair – plaid shirt -  and that turquoise watch…. something blue lol

WWTT – Go-Getters Get It Done!

First Single – Don’t Run Away

David worked with the group Nexus, from the UK, on his first single from the album, Don’t Run Away.  Nexus is comprised of another David – David Sneddon and James Bauer-Mein.  Over the next few weeks, I’m sure we’ll be learning more about this dynamic duo!  In the pics below, do you think this David looks a wee bit like our David?  I think it’s the hair!

To get started, here’s David Sneddon’s website and blog page – there’s a mention of our David under the collaboration column!

Unreleased Songs – WHAAAATTTT?

@ninaasaurus tweeted an interesting find from Dapo Torimiro’s Wiki page – apparently there are several unreleased songs that he worked on with David!  One is a collaboration with Lady V!  Will any of these be on No Matter How Far?

  5. kimk says:

    David’s Rainbow was #6 up from #7 yesterday!! :)

    http://www.myxph.com/default.aspx

  6. Good Morning everyone…..I guess today will be another spazzing day.
    It should be, there is so much to spazz about.
    Sarahhazel, i have work today, but i already put in 200 in musiqtone,
    am going to PV before i leave for work, been posting on tweeter too.
    I sure hope we can win both of these polls for David.
    Kalei……What a great post, so much to go over. I will enjoy it when i get home.

  7. kimk says:

    David has huge hands.

    lol I know shocker.

  8. alana says:

    You know what they say about guys who have large hands don’t ya?

  9. alana says:

    Large hands= large gloves. LOL

  10. jackryan4da says:

    Re-posting from prev thread in response to SARAH

    Nope am not yet asleep. Am voting while I take a break from writing.

    Actually, they have made headway in both Poll Daddy & Twitter.

    As of Feb 1 10:40pm Manila time. their twitter votes have reached about 26K. If we deduct that from our lead on Poll Daddy, the net lead over LMH is only about 100K, down by about 3K from my count 10:40pm yesterday.

    The other group would need to put it 9K votes per day till poll deadline to ivertake us ASSUMING we simply maintain our rate of voting.

    Take note that I haven’t counted out twitter votes. Nor have I looked on the FB and YT votes on both camps.

  11. breanne says:

    OMHECK Kalei, LOVE your post today!!! <333 That top pic of David is so AMAZING!!! It looks like Matt Clayton did it because it has the white brick background that was in the background of a pic that Kari took of David kneeling with that gray jacket & his arms on his knees. David has to be the hardest working man in the business and loves to keep his fans happy!! :)

    We have lost about 14,000 votes off of our lead from last night on the EL poll!! We only got 6,000 votes & they got 20,000 more votes!!! We have been voting our fingers off on this poll, so let's don't lose now as we come into the home stretch!! Voting ends 2/13. I'm off to POWER VOTE!!

  12. breanne says:

    Vote for Rainbow hourly on Chart Central:

  13. Suzanne says:

    Maybe FOD’s banner needs a new picture in honor of No Matter How Far?

  14. Connie@Toronto says:

    Good morning and thanks Kalei for this nice post today.
    I woke up this morning and I’m still super excited with this new album of David. Can’t wait for this album to come out. Love all the spazzing, WWTT and news about this new CD. David is so amazing, really !!! BTW, love the cover pic, he is so gorgeously handsome in the picture, the plaid shirt suits him well. Who did this photo shoot? Anybody knows? Maybe it was posted and I haven’t read it.
    Anyways, have a fabulous Friday everyone. #greatweek :) :)

  15. applegreen says:

    We need more voters! there’s only around 3 or 4 people voting…we need more voters please!!

  16. alana says:

    I still wish they would release Let Me Go, love that song. Has kind of a Maroon 5/JT vibe.

  17. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Kalei and everyone, just sent an email asking to advertize the Utah fan dinner before I noticed you already had. So disregard! Thanks

  18. fan says:

    I’m guessing all of the new songs from the Asian edition of TOSOD will be on there. He told us many times he was working on getting them released in the U.S.

  19. sarahhazel says:

    C’MON GUYS, ONLY 5 PEEPS ARE IN THE PV AT EL POLL???….THE LMH FANS WERE PVing WITH 30 PEEPS THIS MORNING!!!

  20. cq#DA2014 says:

    Loving today’s post Kalei, thank you.
    NO MATTER HOW FAR……………………………We won’t run away!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I guess “trust the Archuleta” might be appropriate to say right now, lol.
    He really meant it when he said he wouldn’t leave us high and dry for the two years. AMAZING DAVID!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Sarahhazel wish i could stay and finish power voting, but i need to leave. I will vote from work on free times and will be voting till wee hours of the night, like i did last night.
    Good luck ARCHIES!!!! EL needs a lot of votes hope you can all join at some point today, at your convinience. Lets not let David lose this poll.

  22. VaBeachArchie says:

    INCREDIBLE post Kal

  23. VaBeachArchie says:

    INCREDIBLE post Kal

  24. nora says:

    where are all the voters that started voting with us in the beginning? I didn’t think that Archies were quitters. We have worked for so long on this poll it is a shame to lose it in the final days. I’m not talking about the people who don’t vote on polls and didn’t start with us, come on help us out. JMO

  25. VaBeachArchie says:

    My daughter’s computer is having issues!! Sorry!

    Kalei! The lead off pic is PERFECTION! THAT IS DAVID! LOVE all the BUZZ! Really so deserved…especially how AMAZING three albums in a year is!! Pocoelsy’s vid is….BEAUTIFUL! Tears!

    LET’S KEEP ON THE VOTE…can’t give up the lead now! David FTW He sure deserves all we can do to support him and keep his name out there! VOTING and TRENDING are two GREAT ways to do that!

    Off to VOTE…back from my appointment and READY to step up! :)

  26. Grannycrush says:

    Nora I agree. That is the frustrating thing about this poll. We were voting at least 26,000 every day between around 9:00 until 11:00 and at night there were on average around 7000 votes. Now we are lucky to get 15000 during the day and 4000 at night.

  27. Tracy says:

    Hi all, just wanna say that they actually talked about David in my radio station in Toronto area. They were talking about the highest rated idol contestants that made the Forbes list and they mentioned David. They mentioned him even before Cook lol. They mentioned being away on a mission and still releasing music and mention the name of the album. I was at work and stook there like a statue listening and everyone stared at me like I was nuts. lol. They havent talked about David since his Crush days. I so hope this is a start to something very exciting for him and us. lol Just though I’d share. :):)

  28. Grannycrush says:

    The power voting at 11:00 is a joke. I was voting by myself for awhile.

  29. sarahhazel says:

    THANKS to the few go-getters who joined in the power voting.
    Lunch break for now.

  30. Connie in Utah says:

    I did just check WOWHD and they have No Matter How Far available for pre-order!

  31. breanne says:

    Just got through voting on the EL poll. It is getting frustrating because fewer people are voting. We only have 12 days left after today, so let’s not lose our lead!!!!

    Two other ways to vote. LMH fans are kicking our butts on these 2 mediums:
    On youtube go to the link & then write in: I Vote for David Archuleta for Foreign Act Newsmaker Of The Year
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCPrZDYI5Lg&feature=youtu.be

    Then on twitter, tweet: @ELifestyleBlog #TELPinoy I Vote for David Archuleta for Foreign Act Newsmaker Of The Year

    That David Sneddon that worked with David on the songs for his newest album seems like a perfect fit with our guy!! :)

  32. sarahhazel says:

    Grannycrush–I started kinda late on the PV….had to take a break after voting since early morning when they were having PV big time….there were up to 30 peeps in their camp voting then. Can’t do much about it when there are only few of us. Trying my best to post reminders too…but you know, gotta attend to real life stuff too and also vote on other polls, esp. Musiqtone.

  33. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Hey guys am voting too but I don’t think we have enough voters to keep up with them. I think it’s only a handful of voters – any ideas to get more help?

  34. sarahhazel says:

    LCT–(1) posting regular reminders on Twitter throughout the day,
    (2) contacting other fan sites, esp. the international ones about PV,
    (3) need power voting from the opposite time zone (overseas) during our sleep time here (midday to early afternoon there) & also between 5 am-11 am EST here (early evening to late evening there).
    I think 2 PVs from us and from them would greatly help. Just my suggestions.

  35. sarahhazel says:

    I did email Pinoy Archies, AP, AAM, DAVN & I forgot who else….but I don’t know what happened….didn’t get a reply or anything.

  36. sarahhazel says:

    Lunch over….mundane first then gonna go back and forth EL & Musiqtone (for 200)—>wanna see David win this one too!
    http://musiqtone.com/music/thecount/musicvideomadness.php

  37. cm(yakima) missionary fan says:

    Can I say that this old lady feels like sky diving and jumping for joy while in the air, kinda like zero gravity??????????? This is such good news on so many levels. New music to squeee about, more music for david to hit the ground running if he wants, since he’ll have an album to support with a TOUR!!!! If there were any more signs we need from him to say I’m coming back to my music career is this it or what??

  38. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Right now it looks like about 3 are voting – aside from PV times – let’s try to have a few over there voting……

  39. sarahhazel says:

    LCT–yup, maybe you, me and somebody else???…LOL…snail pace slowwwww…..

  40. sarahhazel says:

    10-second break here…..Deseret has NMHF for 14.98…..
    http://deseretbook.com/BEGIN-David-Archuleta/i/5080050

  41. sarahhazel says:

    Ooopsss!….No that’s BEGIN…..my bad!

  42. LCT DA#2014 says:

    All we can do is try to keep it at 53%.

  43. sarahhazel says:

    LCT–that’s right….nothing less than that or we’ll be in perilous waters….LOL….
    well, need to get off in 12 minutes to do some stuff….but will be back as soon as I can.

  69. kmb says:

    OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!! DROUGHT, WHAT DROUGHT!!! David and his team have been AMAZING to the fans throughout David’s entire mission! It is FLYING by, at least to me! :) No Matter How Far…interesting title that seems very appropriate. I wonder if that’s the title of one of the songs or not. When, oh when, will we know the tracklist??? I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS!!!!! :D

    That’s a lot of all caps and a lot of exclamation points lol. Forgive me – I just came here to spazz. Best wishes to all of my FOD friends :)

  70. sarahhazel says:

    1 hour before POWER VOTING! Please spread the word via Twitter! The other camp is gonna wake up & start voting….it’s the weekend there now so they might pound us again with their crazy power voting! Thanks!

  71. sarahhazel says:

    kmb–isn’t it fantastic?!!!….we are LUCKY fans!!!

  72. kmb says:

    sarahhazel – Yes we are!!!

  73. Sarahhazel, just got home from work. Hate when i have to work, i miss out on all the spazzing.
    I will be at the PV. I voted from work when possible. All we can do is our best on these polls, If we don’t come up on top it’s not for lack of trying.
    David has taught us how to be gracious losers. So win or lose we are the best FANS ever.
    So lets go ARCHIES and give it our best.

  74. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–that’s true!….we just try our BEST….cuz if there’s only a handful of us voters, it’s impossible to do the job 24 hrs/day…LOL

  75. sarahhazel says:

    30 MINUTES TILL POWER VOTING!!!

  76. sarahhazel says:

    Dinnertime…..BB to voting ASAIC!

  77. sarahhazel says:

    POWER VOTING TIME, GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  78. fan says:

    No matter how far is lyric in the song don’t run away. I have listened to it enough to pick that out! ha ha.

  79. TropicalAngel says:

    kmb- I think No matter how far is part of the lyrics of Dont run away…

  80. VaBeachArchie says:

    sarahhazel….READY for POWER VOTING DUTY! :)

  81. angelbymyside says:

    No Matter How Far will be in Best Buy…….HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fabulous news!!! I want to be able to go into the store and see that beautiful cover on the shelf. :D

  82. Candy says:

    EPPPPPPPP ABMS-Me too, I want to see that beauty front and center on BB shelves!!

  83. angelbymyside says:

    Candy ~ Did you get snow? Saw on the news some places in S. Jersey got 7 inches :shock: …we only had flurries!

  84. Candy says:

    Finally have time to breathe! I love all the speculating about the possible tracks on the album. Songs that were for some reason left on the studio floor only to be given a new life! Sure breathed some life into the fanbase too!

  85. Shanny in Australia says:

    ”No matter how far” ”Don’t run away”
    Very few things are a coincidence with David aren’t they. Every little decision he makes has been carefully thought out and chosen for the messages it conveys. We love you David. Our hearts are still with you. When 2014 dawns we’ll be ready to welcome you home with outstretched arms. There will be no running away, no matter how far you go.

  86. applegreen says:

    Yay..that was quite a successful session of PV. Great job. Hope David’s fans around the world will continue voting. We should be ‘safe’ if there’s continuous voting.

  87. Shanny in Australia says:

    I hope it goes to itunes too.

    If a song gets released to radio does that mean it will definitely get a decent amount of air time I wonder? Seems to me that is up to the discretion of the Dj’s?

    As for the tracklist….remember Beautiful Distraction was registered with ASCAP….thats a lady v and dapo song….maybe that will be included on the album then?

  88. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well :grin:

    I just saw this story about an AI contestant who lied about himself this past
    week during auditions. I’m posting the link, so those of you who watch AI,
    are informed about this. Pretty sad, pretty lousy thing to do.

  89. Candy says:

    ABMS- we got about two, thankfully that was it! Im realizing more and more I am so NOT a fan of snow!

  90. kimk says:

    Shanny songs that sell well they usually play on the radio.

    think David’s team is doing a fabulous job so far with the cd.
    if the CD is what folks besides just us faithful are looking for it will do ok.
    no David around hard to sell.
    not that it matters.. keeping his name out there seems a given way I see it.
    not too bad at all.

  92. tonette913 says:

    Hello everyone! Glad to have you back Sarahhazel! Have been voting on EL (I think I was able to join the PV today) and also on twitter. I also informed Sandritangel ( from twitter) from Peru to ask the other Latin American fans to vote on EL. She told me she would get the word out for them to vote. Don’t worry guys I think we will make it and even get more than a million votes at the end of this poll. Getting David to win in these polls is the least one can do after all the hard work he has done before leaving for his mission. Aside from which his being a dominant contender in these polls, shows the world that he is a force to reckon with even with him being away on his mission. And I think they are noticing it from the comments I have been reading on the different sites. Let’s not lose hope and just keep on getting his name out there. :)

  93. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Its 2 ABOVE zero here in the Twin Cities, WOOOOOT! Its a heat wave, a tropical heat wave……. :grin:

  94. Shanny in Australia says:

    I wonder what makes people become compulsive liars like that. Anyone in their right mind could see that that lie was gonna get busted wide open sooner than later. It’s a shame how people ruin things for themselves like that.

    Kim…so then I wonder…does david’s sales merit ‘selling well’ to these radio stations then? I’m glad he’s going AC.

  95. OoO says:

    David and Kari all I want is Let Me Go to be on this CD love love love this song and is going to be a dance song for his concert for sure just like ZG. All the Spazzed yesterday probably causing a voting number but I am sure it will catch up again. Back to vote.

  96. sarahhazel says:

    1/2 hour left for POWER VOTING! Please spare some of your time and join us!!! :)

  97. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey O0O! I agree, I LOVE Let Me Go!!!!!!!!!!!! I think one of his best vocals ever(at least recorded, plenty of LIVE performances that were spectacular). I would LOVE for him to sing it live!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Are you coping ok Beth? I’ve got a pedastal fan right here blowing on me right now….but i’ve also got the ceiling fan going so if you like I can sacrifice the pedastal one and send it over to you if you like?

    And Candy, i’ll box up some of this heat and send it your way to melt that snow for ya. It’s the least I can do for my peeps.

  100. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Shanny, lol, thats all I need, a fan. Hmmm, I might need to turn on the air conditioning soon :lol: It was 12-below zero when I went to work this morning. I got about 1/2 a block away from my house & my windows frosted over,lol. Suppose to warm up a bit, the next few days. Hmmm, think I’ll ship some of this cold weather to you, I know you’ll just love it :grin:

  101. kimk says:

    Shanny the single or cd hasn’t dropped yet. not even sure if they will release it to itunes.
    as it stands now with Begin. not that I would imagine.
    if folks go crazy for the song might work.
    not worrying about all that. isn’t this all just to keep his name out there?
    David can’t do any tv or interviews so unless the cd or singles are total killers don’t imagine it will be all that popular.

    Here’s a tabular version of my EL tally Feb 2 8am MNL time

    http://www.thedavidchronicles.com/wp-content/uploads/summary-EL-tally.png

    As I mentioned in TDC, the twitter tally for DA does not include Jan 21-24 votes. Except for Poll daddy, the above numbers are just rough counting, ok? But it should give us an idea of how far we have helped put DA on top.

    LMH voters would need to put at least 9K a day to overtake us so its important that we DO NOT stop voting in any means available to us, ok?

    Thanks for all the help!

  106. sarahhazel says:

    Jackryan–thanks for the figures!

    THANKS to all who joined the 7-9 pm Power Voting! Great turnout tonight, guys!!!

    Off to Musiqtone for 300….2 days left for this FINAL ROUND!!!
    http://musiqtone.com/music/thecount/musicvideomadness.php

    (Voting still doing well at EL….will go back there in a little while! :) )

  107. sarahhazel says:

    BTW, we’re almost at the 800,000 mark at EL. Hope we reach 1 million soon.

  108. sarahhazel says:

    Just reached 800,000 mark!!! Woot! KEEP THE VOTES COMING!!!

    Back to Musiqtone….

  109. breanne says:

    WOO HOO!!!! We are now over 800,000 votes on the EL Poll!!! We got about 9,000 votes during the power voting!!! Archies ROCK the VOTE!!!!!! :)

  110. VaBeachArchie says:

    On the power vote…now off on puppy patrol! Babysitting my daughter’s “new” dog while the family is on a ski trip! Sure getting my exercise with all the walks!! lol

    Can’t wait to see the tracklist….maybe even some snippets!! ANTICIPATION!! WE ARE SOME LUCKY FANS TO HAVE NEW MUSIC TO LOOK FORWARD TO!!! THANK YOU DAVID AND TEAM ARCHULETA! :)

  111. sarahhazel says:

    Actually, I need to take a break before going back to voting…..whew!!!

    CROSSING FINGERS FOR A MASSIVE TAKE OVER BY THE INTERNATIONAL ARCHIES LATER ON! Need to beat the LMH fans on their weekend marathon!

  112. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel – I’m taking a break, too. I pre-ordered “No Matter How Far” from WOW Australia. It was $17.99 plus .99 for insurance. So $18.98 all tol. Now will sales count from there or should I get from Amazon for it to count? Grr Never know whats better for David. Amazon is $15.98 but you got shipping so I guess it comes out the same.

  113. OoO says:

    I am going to give some love to NA poll for a bit because it’s pretty ugly there. Anyone knows if You’re Not a Good Liar is on his old CD? This is one of the most sexy song of David mannn he don’t have to unbutton his shirt when sing this song ;PPPP.

  114. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- MOST DEFINITELY!! WE ROCK!!

  115. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    OoO- :lol:

  116. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Back to voting. BBL

  117. Rapport says:

    The comments on this site today have been dripping with desperate pleas to vote, vote, vote for David as 2012 Foreign Act Newsmaker of the Year. How could we sporadic voters not help out? They should just throw out all the names on the list except for the top two entries. It’s their contest and David just rocks the vote a lot more.

    Slowly, but surely, David’s album cover photos are showing off his gorgeous side. Of all his cover images, this is the one that comes closest to the “money shot”. It’s playful, flirty and boldly colorful. Check out that neon watch and those great sneaks. Even his off-center “prayer” hands are having fun.

    I’ve often wondered how so many other incredible images of David can be “out there” in the universe and the media still uses most of the old stuff that’s in their archives. I hope they use this album cover art every once in a while. Perhaps his PR house should update print, online and broadcast media with a blast of new pics, so there’s some consistency around the publicity of No Matter How Far.

    And, Kalei, groovy post. Reed’s remark that he would “market him as some Frankenstein combination of Michael McDonald, Justin Beiber and Michael Buble” is intended entirely to demonstrate that David Archuleta should be recognized as a “monster” talent. His voice is on par with the distinctive pipes of McDonald and Buble and his appeal is potentially in the league of Beiber. Archuleta is a marketing triple threat.

    And the hits keep on coming.

  118. Will contnue PV on my cell, my comp is getting an update on my spyware. Have to let it load,
    Sarahhazel, yeah! get ready for that take over. I hope we can have a good PV tomorrow like we did today to make up votes.
    I need to go for my 300 before the update.
    Will be commenting on my cell. I’ will vote as late as i can tonight,

  119. Shanny in Australia says:

    Beth – yes! Send me some snow! That would be fun! lol
    Windows frosting over while you’re driving!? I don’t even conceive of things like that….yes…windows getting fogged up while driving and frosted over after sitting outside over night….but not while driving!

  120. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Shanny, yeah, fun, fun, fun, lol. I turned the heater on, solved the problem. I’ll send you some snow & cold weather pronto :grin:

  121. nora says:

    just finished voting we are at 801,266 when I left. Just remembered I have to put in my 300 votes on musiqtone, almost forgot. BBL

    Going to Musiqtone now. Then I’m going to sleep. Goodnight everyone.

  123. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight supergrand :grin:

  124. goodnight supergrandjudie! i just came from musiqtone.
    sleep well. Think i will go put in some votes in Polldaddy.

  125. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Just listened to Let Me Go & Desparate. Those could’ve been big hits for David, wished they were released as singles, they’re both great. Just want everyone around the world to hear that great voice. He’s given so much to us, what a guy :grin:

  126. Beth, i need to listen to those 2 songs again, been a while.
    So much excitement’ David gives us so much, hope we can give him something back in return.

  127. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Linda, yeah, go listen to them, sooooooo gooooood :grin: I think he knows how much the fans appreciate all he’s done. I’m sure Kari tells him. Look all of the voting everyone is doing, keeping his name out there, supporting him, I know he’s very grateful :grin:

  128. Candy says:

    Hey Bethy-I so agree, LOVE “Let Me Go” great dance driven beat, would definitely have gotten radio play, Vocals are stellar…as always. On the same level as Zero Gravity which I have always felt if promoted would have done well.

  129. palmtreephan (#DA2014.....and always) says:

    He is amazing. That is all.

  130. Candy says:

    Desperate was my fav off the first cd, I think MaryLee and I were the only two back then that liked the song.

  131. Candy says:

    Hi PalmTree, long time no see…and yes he is quite amazing, isn’t he! Just knocks my socks off time and time again!

  132. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Candy, I have always LOVED Desparate. I think his vocals on that & Let Me Go are incredible. Well, his vocals are always incredible. Let Me Go, showed his spunk. I think he could re-release it, even with this new cd, well, depending what kind of cd it will be, if it will fit, I just love Let Me Go :grin: That voice, that voice, its just too much, just too much!!!!!!!!

  133. Candy says:

    Beth-makes me wonder what goes into the decision as to what goes on an album, what gets left off to never be heard…which with David’s talent is a shame.

  134. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Candy, I know. But like, with any occupation, you make decisions that work & some that dont work. Who knows, maybe everything has gone the way its suppose to & bigger & better things are on the way. Well, with David, his music is the best, so better, thats alot to ask, improve on vocal perfection??? Mindbogging thought :grin:

  135. angelbymyside says:

    I know it won’t be included on David’s new album but I have always loved Save The Day! It’s such a fabulous song…I always wanted to hear David sing it in concert.

  136. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    Hey abms! I like that song too! G’night :grin:

  137. jackryan4DA says:

    CANDY – I love Desperate. I wouldn’t mind that song re-appearing in NMHF but that’s a long shot. David has too many goodies in his vault!

  138. kimk says:

    what I want to hear is LadyV’s When Your Heart Falls Out!!

  139. Goodnight Beth!!!
    JackRyan, i would love to look in Davids vault and listen to every song in there that didn.t make the albums.
    Back to voting. every little vote helps.

  140. angelbymyside says:

    kimk ~ that song is a must hear :D

  141. Candy says:

    yay the love for Desperate is growing…thats four of us!! :)

    Me too kimk-I really hope its on the cd

  142. Wasn’t desperate on Davids first album??? would they release it again??? Just wondering.
    I had to hear it quite a few times before i got attached to it. I love it now. great vocals.

  143. kimk says:

    Candy LadyV recently tweeted her fav they did together was on it along with another song. she mentioned a while back her fav song of Davids was WYHFO. so hopes.

  144. Candy says:

    oh didnt know LadyV has two songs on the album. How sweet is that!

  145. What’s the story with Domino? You guys got me curious about all the songs that david has under his belt and I came upon Domino. Drew Ryan Scott sings the song and not David. Seems David wrote it but I haven’t found him singing it, only Drew. Has anyone ever heard the song before??? BTW, love Don’t Tell Me. Would love to hear him sing it at 22!!!!!

  146. OK, I did some more digging and it appears that David has nothing to do with the song, Domino but it’s listed as his on a compilation of his music…you got me!

  147. oops, meant at 23. Can’t keep track of his age haha

  148. David is currently in the lead by approx 136,000 votes on the EL poll. Hoping for the lead to widen tomorrow…Sweet dreams everyone…No Matter How Far :)

  149. David is approx in the lead by 136,000 votes on the EL poll. Hoping for his margin to widen even more tomorrow. Sweet dreams everyone…No Matter How Far :) Sure makes for a great tagline!!!

    Hi there all,

    Kalei, thank you for the super dee duper post, you really work hard for us , thank you for putting my vid on the front page, such an honor!! Love all the squee an d buzz for D’s new album, we a,re the luckiest fans. Tha lead pic is sooo David , he looks as fresh as a daisy the blue on him is great.

    Thank you to Kimk, Candy, Sarahhazel, Linda, VaBeach,, Shanny and. everyone for watching the vid and always leave some heartfelt comments both on here and my channel, sorry that I come in so late,been busy the whole day with the wedding..i should say double wedding!! 2 couples at once (again haha) this time the grooms are twins , it was fun and tiring. I havent gone through all the comments to be honest, if I miss someone’s name !! I appologize.

    Meantime, am heading for Musiqtone

  171. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Anyone notice the comments below at Polldaddy? Looks like they are up to something.

  172. Grannycrush says:

    Have to leave the EL poll for awhile to get my Musiqtone voting done. Be back soon.

  173. jackryan4da says:

    LCT – look at my summary – their tactic is too flood twitter. They created dummy accounts which I have been monitoring since mid of Jan.

    We’re still ok, cos at it stands, they need to put up a combined total of 9,513 votes to overtake us.

    And since we have not stopped voting, their challenge remains high.

  174. sarahhazel says:

    Dang, my computer died on me again!…but I’m back!….sorry about that, helpers!

    jackryan–that’s good to know….thanks so much for your expertise!
    question: any change of tactics you think we should make for the next 11 days to further secure our lead?……no rush on the answer….haha!

    Back to EL

  175. Grannycrush says:

    We have a lot of fans who are now on twitter rather than on this site. I have pretty much no followers and follow few. Just use my twitter for trending etc. If you have a lot of David fan followers, could you let them know that if they each tweeted @ELifestyleBlog #TELPinoyNewsmaker I voted for David Archuleta for Pinoy Newsmaker of the year. and just change something at the end each time, they could vote for David. I know Jackryan you have tweets to go to David Chronicles to find out how to vote, but if they don’t go there they won’t know. It is so easy that I don’t see why our tweeters won’t do it if they know it will help.

    Sarahhazel, just finished voting on EL poll, things to do before PV at 11, hope all will join in to keep lead, be sure to thank asian Archies for their PV, it really helped, tell them to keep it up. This is our way to keep David’s name out there, but to also shoe how much we appreciated his Nandito Ako series. Will try to be back at 11 but will be back at some point.

  180. nora says:

    sarahhazel good idea about twitter, what would we do without your ideas?

  181. sarahhazel says:
