What’s On the NMHF Track List?

It’s been fun speculating which songs will be on the NMHF album, and here are two that some fans hope make it on the album!

Senseless is a great radio song, and we found a video of the song being sung by another artist, James Fauntleroy – not sure what’s up with that, but check it out below:

There’s only a snippet of this song, but Maybe I’m Amazed is simply amazing!  It would be awesome if David did a full cover of this song!

  1. ksf says:

    Good Saturday morning, FOD! Wonderful new post. Thank you!

    Despite the fact that my sleep was hijacked by angry birds this morning, I’m looking forward to a wonderful day. Have a great one guys! :)

  2. ksf says:

    Didn’t James Fauntleroy write Senseless?

  3. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hey Fod. :-)
    Thanks for the new post Kalei. All these projects – the archies sure know how to keep themselves busy and entertained with projects and contests and voting. lol
    Would love, love, love Maybe I’m Amazed. Pretty sure david knows that caused a reaction in the fanbase…not sure if that means he might consider it’s inclusion or completely disclude it, if you know what I mean. lol

    Ksf, hmmmm….that names does sound very familiar now that you mention it.

  4. ksf says:

    Okay. So far this is the FOD Recommended Tracklist for NMHF:

    1. Senseless
    2. Don’t Run Away
    3. Maybe I’m Amazed

    What other songs should be added?

  5. LCT DA#2014 says:

    ksf, Save the Day and Wait

  6. OoO says:

    4. Let Me Go for sure this is a good pumping up song for his tour.

  7. OoO says:

    sorry 1 more U r not a good liar A MUST.

  8. applegreen says:

    I also like she’s not you

  9. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Hey fans of David, let’s give the EL Poll one more try and see if we can power vote for David at 11:00 am EST. I understand this is asking time away from your personal endeavors. But I remember how the Archies from the Philippines have come through for us international fans beyond what we all expected in 2012. Am sure that we all feel that the title Foreign Act Newsmaker for 2012 belongs to David. And although David has proven that being #2 is never a bad thing, can we just work together for this specific poll so the gap won’t be dismally huge like we dropped the ball altogether? At least for all the hard work David did in the Philippines a fighting chance?

  10. ksf says:

    1. Senseless
    2. Don’t Run Away
    3. Maybe I’m Amazed
    4. Save the Day
    5. Wait
    6. Not A Very Good Liar
    7. She’s Not You
    8. Let Me Go

    Look’s great so far. How many tracks should be included? I’d say ALL the songs in The Vault for sure! :)

  11. Candy says:

    ksf-tracklist sounds great so far….looking forward to seeing what gets added.

    We dodged a snow bullet here at the shore but its the thick layer of ice underneath that is making it a hundred times worse. Its beyond slippery out there. Hope everyone in the storms path is ok. Is it spring yet…

  12. Shanny in Australia says:

    Save The Day is one of my absolute favourites and I like many of these songs people mention….but really….I’m greedy and want songs we’ve never heard David sing before. Specifically, i’m dying to know what he wrote during that era when he was writing by himself and trying to find his sound.

    Really…we have all these beautiful albums…but they all have extenuating circumstances which prevent us from knowing what David discovered about himself and his sound during that period of introspection.

    I think the covers he chose after he left Jive changed and perhaps reflect more of where he’d like to go musically in the future and he did say he wanted to do more vocally driven music and we do have Broken. But we still don’t have a clear picture of where he will go musically.

    My understanding of Broken was that he.had help with the lyrics but that david pretty much came up with the melody himself. I find that exciting because I think the strength of Broken is it’s beautiful melody and shades and nuances between gentle and powerful. Wowza, if that is the sort of stuff that makes up ‘David’s sound’.

  13. Shanny in Australia says:

    Candy, as i’ve said before…i don’t know all the consequences associated with snow and ice etc but please know that I truly hope all of you will be protected and safe and warm.

  14. Jhen says:

    When the Heart Falls Out, but I think it is already somewhat confirm included in the tracklist. I like Senseless too.

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

    Hello Everyone!
    Thanks for the fabulous post Kalei :grin:

    OoO, I agree, LOVE Let Me Go!!!!!!

    Hey Candy! Glad you didnt get as much snow, but that ice can be worse. Be careful if you venture out today. We’re getting our storm starting at Midnight, ice, then snow, ice, then snow, ice, then snow. All depends what track the storm takes :roll: Hope the planning for the conference is going smoothly :grin:

    Love for David to cover these songs someday:
    1. Maybe I’m Amazed
    2. You & I (Stevie Wonder song)
    3. Hey Jude
    4. Come Sail Away (Styx)
    5. Lady (Styx)
    6. Cant Help Falling in Love (Elvis)

  16. OoO says:

    I heard that this CD is under Rock Music. I just can’t wait to hear what kind of rocking is he going to give us. But I am sure is going to rocking good back to vote.

  17. ksf says:

    Candy – I completely understand about the ice. While we don’t get much snow in Atlanta, we’ve had our brushes with the ice and it can be pretty scary. Stay safe.

    Shanny – I agree. I’m definitely anxious to hear the original music too. I just wonder what they will be about. As much as I know he doesn’t necessarily want to sing too many love songs, I can’t help but hope that there will be some included. I miss the love ballads and the R&B grooves. Whether he likes it or not he’s amazing at singing love songs so he should just embrace it, for goodness sakes! :)

  18. Jhen says:

    Congratulation! Everybody hurts Musiqtone 2012 music video of the Year

  19. nora says:

    Good morning all, still snowing and windy here near Boston, so much snow in my driveway I can’t even see my car, looks like a big mountain in the middle of my driveway. Parts of MA water coming over walls along the shore, evacuating some parts along the shore, we were fortunate that we did not lose our power so many have. it is so cold here, even worse with the wind, a few more hours and the worst might be over, now the clean up.

  20. kimk says:

    I vote Maybe I’m Amazed!!!

    good morning folks!!

    Shanny hi! I use Sherwin Williams paints, not sure if they have that by you but it is quality paint! lol it cracks me up when Candy mentions it all the time.
    the main color I use is Whole Wheat, a nice tan that will go with most any color I chose to accessorize the rooms with. in the lady’s parlor I have a couple shades darker a pretty Baguette (ha getting hungry)
    and in my den I have what some might say is the color of burlap Dapper Tan. guess I got a music room going on there.. kind of retro and fun. we have even got ourselves a great record player for hubs extensive vinyl collection. it is pretty cool now that some new artists are offering their music that way too. I recently got myself the new Imagine Dragons and Pink cd on vinyl but no David. did look for him!
    other rooms that I have painted are in blues and grays that go well with the tans I have used in the rest of the house. my next project is a guest room.. I am painting the furniture black with all white walls. white is the new basic these days here. cool to see it as David’s backdrop for NMHF.

  21. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Morning all in Archuletaland…..Congrats to David on the Music Video Victory over Taylor Swift…..and YES I MISS DAVID too…..So much fun speculating on what songs will be on the new album…..but is sounds like it will be all of David’s music and not covers…..Have a great day OoO, Shanny, Jhen, Beth, ksf, Candy, applegreen, LCT DA #2014…..and waves to VaBeachArchie if you are lurking there this morning, but I bet you are at the beach this fine sunny morning in central VA……Have a great day all…..Miss Vicki

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

    Hey nora! Gosh, what a storm, hopfully it will let up soon. Glad you still have your power :grin:

    Hey kimk! Wow, you have you’re hands full, getting that house of yours ready to sell.

  23. OoO says:

    kimk I am greedy I vote for MIA too.

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

    Hey Miss Vicki! I hope for one cover, but cant wait to here Davids music.

    Oh, one more cover I thought of:
    Man In the Mirror

  25. Virtue says:

    Hi, folks! So glad David won @ Musiqtone :) I guess it pays to vote here and there whenever you can.

    The snow is snowing here in Connecticut. I love it! We lost power for a very short time last night. I don’t see where we’re gonna put snow once it’s plowed, shoveled, or brushed of cars.

    Have a wonderful day!

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

    Well, guess I’ll go & get started on my list of chores
    to do, its a long one & the Fine Feathered Fellows
    are out skiing before the storm hits. They look so
    handsome in their Plaid Parka’s & Moonboots :grin:
    Ciao!

  27. Jhen says:

    Miss Vicki- me too, I miss David also.
    Have to go to sleep now, bye everyone!

  28. ksf says:

    And I’m not counting Forevermore. That was recorded under extenuating circumstances. Lol.

    Tbh, D could sing love ballads for every song in EVERY album. I know I’m in the minority but…just sayin. :)

  29. ksf says:

    Hi Miss Vicki! :)

  30. Grannycrush says:

    Nora My daughter lives in Arlington. We skyped last night and this morning my son-in-law said they had “between 20 and 30 inches”. I don’t know if he measured or that was on the weather report on TV. They still have power, too. They were concerned last night about that as it was so windy. They also had a couple trees they were concerned about. All seems to be well this morning. They are hunkered in making chili.

  31. kimk says:

    ohh a Michael Jackson song would be off the wall amazing too!!

    lol so when will we get this tracklist!!??
    ha kari told me.. in due time!!

    Beth I love it.. got my own tools and can pretty much do it all. ha even change out a toilet if needed. only thing is I am not that strong so something like kitchen cabinets etc I usually have someone else tackle. love to sew too.
    it all started a long time ago when I wanted a nice house and what it cost to pay someone to do what I wanted was a fortune! figured more moola for the fun deco stuff if I do it myself!

  32. journey says:

    Just hopping out of lurkdom to throw another song into the discussion. I was quite intrigued by a song that he wrote with Matt Wertz several years ago called Best Behavior. Interesting lyrics on being real. It obviously never made the album, but there is a youtube video of Matt singing it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ija6GOy6F6o

  33. Good Morning, Ksf, Kimk, Candy, Beth, Nora, GrannyCrush, Jhen/goodnight, Virtue, OoO, Miss vickie, Shanny, Lct, & anyone else i might have missed.
    Lovin all the tracks youall have created.
    Kalei great post as usual, you never fail to amaze me.
    I’m off for 3 days, Yea!!!! Right now i need to do my David duties and vote.
    We will be POWER VOTING UNTIL ITS OVER. same times 11am est & 7pm est.
    Lets make these last ones a good one. just to give David more votes.
    Like LCT said, 2nd isn’t too bad.

  34. nora says:

    grannycrush-my husband just tried to go outside to shovel, but can’t open front or back door to get outside, he has to remove the glass in door to clear away snow up against door, good thing there was no emergency to get out, he is not a happy camper right now

  35. journey….I remember that song.

  37. Grannycrush says:

    LindaFromCali To answer your question from last night. I was talking about the Musiqtone poll taking me about 5 min. to vote 100 votes not the EL poll. The Musiqtone poll, I do the ctrl -, two times. Put my cursor on David click and enter. I keep my cursor in the same place and it is almost always right on David’s voting circle after each vote, so I just keep repeating click, enter, etc. It goes really fast on my computer.

  38. pocoelsy says:

    Hi there all,

    Congrats David and all Archies for winning Musiqtone 2012 Music Video of the Year: Everybody Hurts! Ahhh we still haven’t lost our magic :D

    Kalei thanks for this fantastic post, Love the sparkly eye, victory, and every bits and pieces !!!

    Love the “tracklist” you guys suggested, I love to see Man In the Mirror , When You Say You Love me, I Have Nothing and Go The Distance included in there !!

    Busy week ahead of me, Eldest daughter is back for long Chinese New Year holiday a lot of food to cook and lots of shopping to do haha

    LCT, loving what you said I’ll will join you on my cell :) since I can’t sit in front of my PC for the next few days.

    Have a nice day/night all , will go to the poll throw some vote in for a bit.

    Gong Xi Fa Cai to our Chinese Archie friends, hope you all have a great Snake year :D

  39. Lucy says:

    Morning all, I sent my card to David yesterday, kinda late but I hope Kari gets it before her next shipment. We are under a winter storm warning until Tuesday and I have to work thru Monday, luckily I don’t have very far to drive back and forth. Anyway, I watched that Singapore vlog, and that was a neat thing for David and Kari to do! Was fun to watch again. Shanny, I was wondering what to write to David too, but I just picked a few things I really wanted him to know and I managed to say what I wanted in a short but sweet letter.

  40. Janel aka Nellie says:

  46. Miss Vicki says:

  47. Bychance says:

    Morning all,

    That top sparkly eyed, glows skin pic!

    ksf – love the track list. I’ll take anything, but I’m with you on the love ballads….he can melt hearts with the way he sings those. Loved your little “hush birds” story…….maybe a little nap today is in order?

    Virtue…
    Nice to hear someone else loves the snow….me, too. Now, when it’s mixed with ice …..yikes, a different story! Be safe, Candy.
    nora, hope you can get out of your house!….oh my goodness, now that is a lot of snow!

    Beth, I am getting a chuckle just thinking about the Boys skiing ….and picturing them skiing on the ice we’re going to get, well……just hope you don’t end up with any broken wings!

    kimk…you go girl…I’m a do it your selfer, too….have painted every room in our house, plus painted all the oak woodwork white. I love it…..looks more like a southern home now, which I love.

    Hope everyone stays safe and warm today. Thanks FOD for always being here!
    Off to power vote for a while……then groceries for hunkering down. It’ 82* in Chili right now…..enjoy it David!

  48. kimk says:

    ohh we do need a double CD!

  49. pocoelsy says:

    Am I missing something here? I heard of the title “Best Beheavior” but have anyone heard the song already ?

    By Chance, Thank you for you kind words about my vid in the last post, I was so busy with family today so haven’t say “thank you” to you yet !!

    Ksf, yes “I have nothing” Whitney Houston

  50. kimk says:

  51. Grannycrush, thanks, i was talking about musiqtone too. Will try it. takes to long the other way.

  52. ksf says:

    pocoelsey – see Journey @ 10:29 am for Best Behavior.

    Bychance – yes, hopefully later today I’ll get some shut eye. But right now we’re getting ready for a party my husband’s throwing for his job this afternoon @ 1. I’m about to have about 30-40 peeps in my house so its a little crazy right now. I’m hoping everyone will be gone by 3pm at the latest. :)

  53. kimk says:

    Duke Bisson ‏@BissonDuke
    Late to the party but big thumbs up to @davidarchie for his great new song Don’t Run Away. Like it a lot.

  54. pocoelsy says:

    ksf, Jouney, thanks hehe I haven’t scroll up enough !!! now I remember, amazing song :)

    Gotta go now, bed time see you all later :D

  55. kimk says:

    Josep Vinaixa ‏@josepvinaixa
    .@DavidArchie unveils the official cover of new single “Don’t Run Away” from upcoming album “No Matter How Far”

    OHH says DRA released to itunes FEB 19?!! :shock:

  56. Wil says:

    I’m hoping that “Nothing Else Better to do” will be on the album.

  57. Grammyj says:

    According to the press release it sounds like there won’t be any covers on this album. These will be songs that David helped write that weren’t released in the U.S so I doubt any of the covers suggested will be on the album. I’m hoping for some great songs that David helped write that we haven’t heard yet.

  58. ksf says:

    Wil – Another original that I’d forgotten about!

    Grammyj – yeah I know. I think, though, this has kinda turned into a wish list of sorts. :)

    1. Best Behavior (very Jason Mraz-ish)
    2. Senseless
    3. Don’t Run Away
    4. Maybe I’m Amazed (cover)
    5. Save the Day
    6. Wait
    7. Not A Very Good Liar
    8. She’s Not You
    9. Let Me Go
    10. When Your Heart Falls Out (a completely never before heard original )
    11. Man In the Mirror (cover)
    12. When You Say You Love Me (cover)
    13. I Have Nothing (cover)
    14. Go The Distance (cover)
    15. Nothing Else Better To Do

    Any more originals?

  59. Bychance says:

    kimk….ha, pillow mountains!….I can relate…happens here all the time!

    ksf…oh my heck, you really will need a nap! Good luck with the party!

    Wil…I like Nothing Else Better To Do, too…….was trying to think of the name of it earlier, and couldn’t, lol.

  60. Candy says:

    Been without power the last couple of hours, tree across street took out wires, transformer and traffic light. Branches are ice covered and wind is howling. But still nothing like Nora and others are experiencing. Even with the sun shining brightly other factors (ice/wind) can still cause problems. Glad to have power and heat back. Pictures from CT/MA/ME are frightening.

  61. Janel aka Nellie says:

    ksf my wish list would include a few songs we’ve never heard. I think that will make the album more inviting and create more sales.

  62. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Rainbow Remix only 51,068 views. Kind of low and sad. Might be the orange lips. LOL. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4y5GbWB-iU&list=UU75d1FNP1qR0lCY1usRKQEw&index=1

  63. Candy says:

    Hi Janel, Mine would too. Yeah not a fan of the orange lips, but the voice is still killer. Think fans maybe be preoccupied with voting, other things now, hopefully it will pick up.

  64. I try to play Rainbow while i’m voting, so it will have more views.

  65. nora says:

    Maybe after power voting we could give Rainbow MV and DRA some more views. I think they both deserve more views. Last couple of days I have tried to give both more views.

  67. kimk says:

    Janel lol could be that.. think more the fact he is on hiatus.

  68. VaBeachArchie says:

    All those up North stay safe! Thinking about you all!

  69. Do you think DRA doesn’t get a lot of views because most people are listening to soundcloud? The Video doesn’t have a story yet, just a beautiful gorgeous Matt Clayton Pic.

    missing David bad!

    Warning Mission Video!

    http://youtu.be/wQAd_Dx4jaQ

    his voice
    deeper and divine.. oh and did I mention HE IS SINGING IN SPANISH!!!!???

  74. Bychance says:

    VaBeach….oh, so sorry about your ankle. Nothing for it, but to stay off it and enjoy more David time!

    Yeah, a Spanish song would be great, too…..either now or when he gets back. In fact, if we don’t get a Spanish album some day, I think the whole fan base will revolt!!

    Going to go give some views to DRA….oh that MC pic!!

  75. kimk says:

    would be a fabulous idea if his team tries to bring in some of the personal side to David come time to drop the single and CD?
    hard for folks to feel connected right now with him gone.

    I vote the dougie vid!!! :D

  76. Bychance says:

    kimk…..ahhh…the Chili vid…..it’s often a part of my bed time ritual, lol….perfect for the end of the day…..go off to sleep smiling.

  77. Candy says:

    Oh VABech-sorry to hear about your ankle, stay inside and rest.

    Love that Mission song in Spanish, gessh it has almost as many views as the Rainbow Remix and we cant understand a word! Hoping and praying for a Spanish song on the cd. (Crush)

  78. kimk says:

    Candy has that many views because it is amazing!!
    not to mention no makeup and as I love Rainbow I think the music side of it needed a lil somethin somethin else. nice though and hope we get to see him doing that on tour!

  79. By Chance, that Chili vid is my lullaby before Bed too. Puts me to sleep everytime LOL!!!

  80. Bychance says:

    Linda…bet David didn’t know when he sang in Chili that he was really singing us to sleep every night! It’s just so beautiful in so many ways!

  81. kimk says:

    Shanny just got done painting my music room and I was going thru our old records and found this! :)
    no idea how old it is I couldn’t find a date but it sure is pretty cool!

    http://twitpic.com/c29ddf

    haven’t listened to it yet but plan to soon!!

  82. Honest Fan says:

    Regarding the Rainbow video…. I just don’t think it has much of a hook, like Kimk said musically it is missing something and yes the color of his skin and lips and movements are a real standout and have a lot to do with it. Of course we love it cause it’s David but other songs and videos like EBH now thats is an awesome video and should be shy rocketed. Hope he does something klike that with DRA.

  83. Honest fan. I believe you and Kimk are right. Actually David made these videos for us fans and yeah it doesn’t have much of a hook but like you said,but its David. I’m sure he was uncomfortable having to do all those movements. But it is fun to watch him.

  84. Honest Fan says:

    It’s always fun to watch him :) and hear him. no complaints from me just think maybe from others thats why it may not get all the hits it should. :)

  85. Candy says:

    Honest fan-I think so too, there were some not so nice comments floating around about the makeup and hand movements. I was going to make some counter comments but decided against it, sometimes it just adds more fuel to peoples fire.

  86. kimk says:

    ha I have noticed thru the years the Asian make up artists (Nandito Ako too) layering it on him..
    me thinks they just don’t want to stop playing around with that gorgeous face of his. :wink:

  87. kimk says:

    I like all those movements.. at least we know he can move!

    yup.. these vids/music/pics keep the fires burning.. love all of it!
    ok I’ll Never Go maybe not that one so much
    still traumatized.

  88. kimk says:

    Watching A Walk To Remember. @DavidArchie I have some room next to me, lets cuddle

  89. ksf says:

    Janel @ 12:01 – I agree and apparently that’s exactly what NMHF will be. But we can only speculate/dream about songs that we have heard (i.e. leaked songs from The Vault, etc.).

    1. Best Behavior (very Jason Mraz-ish)
    2. Senseless
    3. Don’t Run Away
    4. Maybe I’m Amazed (cover)
    5. Save the Day
    6. Wait
    7. Not A Very Good Liar
    8. She’s Not You
    9. Let Me Go
    10. When Your Heart Falls Out (a completely never before heard original )
    11. Man In the Mirror (cover)
    12. When You Say You Love Me (cover)
    13. I Have Nothing (cover)
    14. Go The Distance (cover)
    15. Nothing Else Better To Do
    16. ANYTHING SPANISH :)

    Any more originals?

  90. Going to Walmart with my daughter. It’s about an hour away. Hope to be back in time for PV at 7pm est. There’s a casino near by there, hope my daughter doesn’t decide to peek in there. LOL!!!!

  91. ksf says:

    kimk – I like D’s moves in Rainbow, too. It’s just great to see him joyful and upbeat after all the completely emo vids.

  92. kimk says:

    as I recall there was another song recorded for Begin but not on the cd.
    that could be one of them.
    then there is LadyV’s Heart Falls Out
    not to mention I bet there are a lot of songs he has recorded the last couple of years that we never heard.
    wonder if anything from Eman?
    hope for Spanish Crush too
    Kari did say she was going to look into it
    might not be available though
    Jive dudes might not let that one go.

  93. kimk says:

    ksf yup. do like Forevermore and kind of like Wait too. his only semi edgy vid to date.

  94. Kalei says:

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Love all the track list suggestions! I’m thinking there might be at least one cover song – thinking back to Kari’s “hint” about “Something Borrowed” – no matter, it’s fun to speculate, anticipate and celebrate and any other “-ate” you can think of!

    Hope everyone in snowy weather stays warm & safe! I have to say, snow is something I never have to worry about lol!

    Thanks to everyone who brings over links, pics, and info to comments – it’s really cool to see how much David buzz there is even while he’s away. Have a great weekend everyone!

  95. kimk says:

    Kalei do remember that!
    Adele’s Someone Like You?
    he does know how to play the piano part!!

  96. ksf says:

    kimk – I think my favorite vids from him are SBL and ALTNOY. Both were so fun and youthful. In particular, ALTNOY was great because he was actually a part of the action, not the narrator. When he returns maybe we’ll see more of that type of vid since he is now a bonafide actor. :)

  97. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Steven Robinson just posted this on his FB:

    Good afternoon SJR peeps! A few of you know from my announcement on Twitter (@Stevenjrob) that I’ve been filming these last couple of days. About 4:30am this morning, the cast officially wrapped for a national commercial. I will not give the name of the brand being advertised, (where’s the fun in that?) but I will say that this particular project featured a few of the nations top super models; including Miss Kate Upton. We shot on location at the mansion of the late Frank Sinatra, later owned by the late Lucille Ball. I didn’t say much in this commercial, but you just might see me behind some drums and mingling with party guests. :) It’s always a pleasure to work, and fulfill dreams with the help of God. Due to extreme weather conditions, this shoot was one of the more difficult performances in my career, but hanging with my fellow performer friends (some old, some new) we made the best of it! Once the commercial is released, I’ll post it. Unless one of you sees it first and tells me it’s out; the usual. Ha ha! Blessings-SJR

  98. Bychance says:

    kimk…..I think you hit the ‘too much make up’ nail on the head! They don’t want to stop being up close and personal with that gorgeous face! …..”oh, just a little more here, ….and why don’t we try this, and, what in the world else can I do so this doesn’t have to end?!” It’s the only explanation.lol…heaven knows he doesn’t need it!

    Sorry, that was on Steven J. Robinson’s FB, posted just a few minutes ago.

  101. Janel aka Nellie says:

    oops, don’t know how it got posted twice. Sorry everyone. My computer has been slow today and giving me problems.
    Hope all is well. I’ve been looking back at all of David’s Idol performances and remembering what made me fall in love with his voice in the first place.

  102. kimk says:

    By Chance no kidding.. gotta get mighty close putting make up on that pretty boys face. not to mention the whole time he is staring upbat you with those hazel eyes of his.

    Janel who is that model? I remember watching a MV he did with a group that was not D rated or lol me rated so wondering what he is up to.
    ha Victoria Secret?

  103. kimk says:

    Justin Bieber will be hosting SNL tonight.
    yup watching.

  104. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I don’t know Kimk, I haven’t seen any of Steven’s acting stuff. Don’t know names of models these days. I guess we’ll have to see.

  105. kimk says:

    Janel one I saw was a music video and he was the drummer. he posted it on twitter way back. did watch some of it but it was mature rated as I recall.
    heard that name before.

  106. Candy says:

    kimk-I just saw that JB is the first artist in music history to have 5 # 1 albums before his 19th birthday! Like him or not…that is amazing!!

  107. Honest Fan says:

    Amazing maybe but more like mind boggling, and confused more like it. lol Sorry did i just write that on line.

  108. Candy says:

    Hi Honest-I can somewhat understand the confused part…he sure doesnt have the best voice but what hes got is a manager that is a marketing genius and enough money in the bank to afford the best song writers on the planet. Hes worth 55 million after expenses, I say good for him!

  109. kimk says:

  111. Honest Fan says:

    Oh I know Candy, I was just teasing. I have to be honest I have listened to a sang he has sang all the way through because I can not handle his voice. His accoustic sound is not even in the same league as well anyone that has that much succuss. I have tried but just cant do it….so I do agree his management and team I give all credit to. Young girls who crush over him are thinking with their hormones not their ears that is for sure.

  112. AnGeL says:

    I don’t know how David did it ! how could he leave his family for 2 years !
    I will go to the United States to study college there , and my family will come too, but after 2 months ! and i don’t know how i’m gonna handle those 2 months !
    David is really strong !
    i’m gonna leave at the end of march ! > like someone we know ? david ?
    it’s like i’m walking in his shoes , feeling what he felt

    but i will try to be as strong as david !

  113. kimk says:

    Angel my sons have traveled all over the world and stayed away for long periods of time from the time they were 17. they loved it and grew in many ways. enjoy!!

    as for Justin Bieber
    he might not be what you like but it is working for him. he has a great team too.
    must of been a gap or need for whatever he offers. 1D is about the same way now.
    I think for the young girls.. they are living romance novels.
    lol I guess the ‘fifty shades of grey’ for youngens.

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

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

    I could say good for the Beav, despite not having alot of vocal talent, he does have good promotion. The thing is I’ve heard he’s one way on camera, but another way off camera. I could say a few things, but they’re not complimentary, at all. You can surround yourself with people who help to promote you to where you are now, but do they take time to make sure you grow up into a decent human being or all they see when they look at you is dollar signs, treat you as such, heaping false praise on you, hire a swagger coach, so you can “charm” your way through life instead of earning your way through life, that while you have success in your professional life, monetarily speaking, but you cant handle, cant cope with anything in your personal life or treat others as they should be treated. While I dont believe a celebrity’s personal life is any of my business, how they treat others, how they conduct themselves professionally & they’re integrity do matter to me. I dont expect anyone to be perfect, everyone messes up, but when people get so full of themselves, that they think they can get away with anything, that, I have a problem with. I hope that young people who havent had the people around them act with their best interests at heart & start acting like that, find they’re way to a happy life, not just professionally, but personally.

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

    Sorry for the length of my previous comment, didnt look that long :roll: Also, wasnt trying to slam the Beav, yes he’s not my fav, just trying to make the point that you can have all of the promotion, sell a ton of records, but, still, feel lonely, tired, used, but your ego has been pumped up by so many around you, maybe by some who are looking after your own interests, that its difficult to get your feet planted firmly on the ground.

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

    ***looking after THEIR own interests(not your)

  117. kimk says:

    Beth I think those artists are what the youngens want these days. obviously.
    they are todays version of David Cassidy, The Monkees, etc.
    not meant to be all that serious. just fun.
    Ed Sheeran is quite popular now. he is young and very good.
    he doesn’t have the cute boy look and all but he is an amazing artist.
    he’ll be performing with Elton John tomorrow night at The Grammys.
    quite an honor.
    excited for the show. a lot of fabulous artists will be performing!
    JT too. maybe we will get to see Kari!!

    lots of idols are going too.
    Kelly is performing!!

  118. Candy says:

    Beth-a lot of what you said is true and I agree with, but rather then blame Justin, the real blame falls on his mom, where was she to protect her kid from all of the pitfalls of this business. He was too young to just be handed over to a manager. With all the backlash that was thrown at Jeff A. for being a “Stage dad” at least he didnt throw his kid to the manager and money wolves. He did what he could to “protect him” and instead of being praised for doing so, he was crucified by the media. Those were Davids words, not mine.

  119. tami lyn says:

    wow what a super weird day! my pic was in the newspaper and i actually looked good(for once)! then in the grocery store the cashier(a young cute guy) was staring and smiling at me, then in the parking lot a cute cart guy was talking to me! did i die and wake up on another planet?? what the heck is going on? i feel disoriented LOL :)

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

    kimk, yeah, I know & thats fine, just keep thinking about how some young people in the business have a tough time after that initial success, in part, because the people around them dont help them to keep at least one foot on the ground, lots of sad stories out there. Dont know how much of the Grammy’s I’ll watch, we’ll see. Could be interesting :grin: Saw what you said earlier about learning how to do things around the house yourself. I think thats cool. Feels good to tackle a household repair or decorating project yourself. I’ve tried several, some successes, some failures :roll: :grin:

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

    Hey Candy! I agree with you & thats why I mentioned the people around him, not having his best interests at heart. Yeah, they made out Jeff to be someone forcing David to do AI, but Davids the one who made the decision & the musical director said the show wasnt easy for him, but he did it, was incredible & it made him stronger, not as shy & he had great experiences. I believe Jeff stood up for David, was there for him, like you said, protected him, but I dont think he was some awful stage Dad, but a Dad who loved his kid. David was & is stronger than people gave him credit for. Yes, in his own words he was a bit of a people pleaser, lots of us are, the compromisers, but he said he was 17 & could take care of himself, his dad didnt do anything.

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

    Hope all you Eastcoaster’s are doing ok, staying safe, warm & snug as a bug in your homes :grin: We’re going to get at least 6-10 inches of snow, with some freezing drizzle & thunder mixed in. Not quite as big as your storm, but mondays rush hour should be interesting :roll: Mother Nature’s being grumpy, I still say she needs to take up yoga or take up a hobby, knitting, crocheting or painting, maybe then she’ll relax.

  125. ksf says:

    I believe that Jeff was a stage dad. There were even things said about it when David was on Star Search. I don’t believe these rumors about him are out of thin air. Not saying that that’s a bad thing…or a good thing. No, I do not know David or Jeff, just like we don’t know Bieber and yet believe what is in the media. Jeff’s parenting has most likely protected David from a lot, but then that’s ultimately a parent’s role. I know personally as a mother, I would do whatever it took to make sure that my son’s needs were met and that he wasn’t taken advantage of. I do wonder though why the media would arbitrarily “crucify” Jeff. What was he doing that was different than the other parents?

  126. Lurker says:

    Not sure if this has been posted before, but Heart Falls Out is now listed on ASCAP:

    https://www.ascap.com/Home/ace-title-search/index.aspx

  127. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth, Well said about Jeff and him suppoting David. I met Jeff on AI tour and got his autogragh that night. He wanted to know why I wanted his autograph and I told hom I admired Him and his family for being behind David. I also met and talked to him at Jingle Ball, Camden, Starland Ballroom, got a picture with him, Myrtle Beach, talked to him and Westbury, talked with him. He was always gracious and gave us his time. He put a lot of time helping and watching out for David. He got a bad rap. People were led to believe that he was helping David pick out the best songs to sing on AI. We all know David had studied the Billboard charts and knew all the songs that were out there. He’s a human jukebox. Only time I saw David upset, except when acting in NA, was on a radio interview and a dj started talking about his father for the hundredth time and David emphatically said that his father never yelled at him or told him what to do. He was visibly upset. The interviewers always went for that hogwash. Felt so bad for David and Jeff. Okay, I’m done.

  128. Just got back from my trip. Did i miss anything????

  129. ksf says:

    Lurker – Thanks! I’m thinking NMHF….yes!!! :)

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

    Hey ksf! That stuff about star search was said by someone who was a judge who was promoting a book during the AI season & was taking advantage of the stuff said to promote herself. Whats true or not true, no, we cant no for sure, but a girl who was on star search said her dad & Jeff were having fun, lighthearted stuff, buds. You know, we have no idea what producers & others who run these shows attempt to do to these contestants, so I hope the parents are there to protect the kids. Look at all the crap AI pulled on David, yet he still speaks well of the experience, he always looks for the good in everything. Read supergrands comment at 9:30. David hated it when people said things about his dad. I’ll take Davids word over certain other people. Unless he says differently, thats what I go with.

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

    Hey supergrand, loved your comment :grin:

    Hey Linda! Not too much, but, Davids single coming out soon, then his cd, woo-hoo, cant wait :grin:

  132. ksf says:

    kimk – I’m with you. Sooo excited for the Grammys! Growing up we’d all watch it every year as a family. I like how there are always unexpected collabs. You mentioned Ed Sheeran and Elton John. Also, Bruno and Rihanna are performing with Sting which should be interesting.

  133. Candy says:

    SGj- Same here, the times I met Jeff he was gracious, proud of his son in a nice way, and seemed grateful to fans for their support. At the Jingle Ball he went out of his way to arrange for a group of us to meet David inspite of being pressed for time. I agree and still stand by thoughts that for the most part Jeff got a bad rap.

  134. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Thanks Beth. :smile: Linda,Glad you’re back.
    Just a note- I saw Paul Williams on Craig Ferguson the other night. He is a singer -songwriter from the 70′s and 80′s. He is small in stature but big in the music industry. He mentioned he was pres. of ASCAP. Thought that was interesting.

  135. potluck8 says:

    Well I’ve just seen it all. I was watching David and Rebecca singing the Prayer, then it flipped back to watch other David videos mostly from his Chili concert. What got me was the featured vedio of a half naked girl with her hand over her bare breasts along side Davids’ reverent vidios. I found it rather disturbing. Why would someone do that?

  136. Thanks Beth!
    SGJ, well said. Who’s to know how we would react if one of our children were in Davids shoes.
    He has turned out pretty good, if i say so myself.

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

    supergrand, I remember Paul Williams, he’s written alot of hits over the years, kind of a funny guy too, from what I remember.

    Candy, I agree.

    Hey potluck! Thats odd, dont know how certain videos end up where they do.

  140. ksf says:

    Beth – Yep. I read sgj’s comment. As I said, I believe that the rumors are not out of thin air. I’m not saying that Jeff was/is some kind of monster but there most likely is some truth to what has been said. That is what I’m saying. The fact that a son defends his father is no “evidence” (for lack of a better word) to the contrary and I would expect nothing less. Sometimes people that are outside a situation have a more objective view than someone who is engrossed in it. In any event, anything said here is pure speculation, whether its about David or any other celebrity since we have no way of knowing one way or the other. Thanks. :)

  141. angelbymyside says:

    Matt Clayton certainly has an eye for his subjects!

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

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    ksf, Like I said, I’m going with what David
    says. I’m not going to discuss this subject
    again, because I dont know all the facts, but
    I believe David, based on a collection of things
    I’ve seen & heard over the years. Now, we need
    to move onto other things, such as the new single
    and cd coming, I’m so excited. Wonder what songs
    will be on it. Loved alot of songs you had on the
    track list earlier :grin: G’night!

  144. ksf says:

    Goodnight Beth. As usual, we will agree to disagree.

  148. Evening Everyone :)
    Hope everyone in the winter storm’s path has come through it with less than those huge snow accum. across the northeast!!! Luckily, we had less than a foot here but I couldn’t help think of an archie fan who lives in Boston and is an RN. I think there was a “3″ in her username. She used to post often and plans to come back when David returns. She must have been wolloped!!!
    I love the virtual track list for NMHF and I have heard Best Behavior before and what makes me think I heard David sing it?
    Can’t wait to see the Grammy’s and to hear Kari’s impressions of the evening!!!

    Then again, who says stage parents are all bad? After all, look at David. ;)

    Goodnight everyone! :)

  150. ABMS, can that pic be from the same photo shoot where David is crouching??? Maybe the sleeves were pushed up for a different look. The gorgeous hair looks identical IMHO haha

  161. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Gosh…..VaBeachArchie…so so sorry to hear about your sprained ankle….Hope you are on the mend soon….Wondered why we didn’t hear from you early this morning…..Miss Vicki

  162. Idamae, i agree about La fuente De la juventud.

    OoO… Voting, voting, Voting!!!

  163. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey Idamae….been lurking today……Miss Vicki

  164. kimk says:

    wonder if that pic is from a video?

  165. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hmmm…that picture….something BLUE Kari hinted at?

    Potluck, if I were you i’d be investivating who else uses your computer and what they’ve been looking at.

    Kim, thanks for sharing about your painting. They sound similar to the colours we painted our last house before we sold it. We have a tan kind of colour we’re using as our main colour too. Leaning towards a stone coloured tan rather than a pinky tan. We have a green feature wall in one of the rooms and am thinking about using that same colur as a feature wall in my room. I am also very partial to smokey grey/blue’s. Two of my kids have a ‘rose’ coloured dusky pink as feature walls. Another one wants green, so we’re still trying to figure that one out.
    We are definitely not D.I.Yers. Which is weird because my hubby’s family are all incredibly good at that sort of stuff. I want to become a DIYer though…i realised a couple of years ago that we are taught in society that we need an expert for everything. Need a teacher to teach kids to read, need a hairdresser for a haircut, need a painter to paint your house…and on and on. People got on just fine for a long time figuring things out with a lil help from their friends. I want to start doing that again.
    And …wow…that is completely awesome about the MoTab record. Funny how you ended up with that….and all these years later to have such connection to it.
    My mum used to have the most awesome vinyl collection – hundreds of them – she gave.them away four years ago when she moved here to Australia. She kicks herself now and I kinda do too.LOL

    Hi , idamae, OoO and Miss Vicki. Been voting, now my eyes are drooping. Goodnight all. Linda, you and Mr.SGJ have a great birthday present from David. Goodnight all.

  167. Shanny in Australia says:

    Vabeach, ouch! on the ankle. Can you still get about well enough to take care of yourself?

  168. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nora, yikes! Hope that snow melts quickly!
    Stay safe everyone!

  169. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Candy…Saw your post much earlier about Justin Beiber being the first in history to have 5 #1 albums before he was 19….I just can’t believe it since I have NEVER heard a single song of his even on radio…..Does he sing to himself???? Or in the shower to himself or in his room to his dog???…..He’s not gonna be the next Sinatra that’s for sure…..David…..well that’s another a story….It is the turtle who will win the race….HA HA….Miss Vicki

  170. nora says:

    kimk-that picture from angel looks like the same picture that is on the Don’t run away song posted by E-one.

  171. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nite nite SGJ. Sleep well.
    I’ve got my kids on the vote again. lol

  172. nora says:

    Shanny-don’t think it is going to melt very fast because it is going to be 8 degrees tonight. Our church even cancelled services for tomorrow. There is so much snow here now it will probably be here until spring. Oh well that is what I get for living in New England.

  173. Shanny in Australia says:

    As for the Jeff Archuleta discussion. I’ve got a lot of thoughts about that but I won’t ramble on about them. Suffice it to say, I think no parent is perfect, no kid is going to be as talented/successful as david was without a little bit of prodding from one or both parents, there has never been anyone working for david who has ever understood david as well or had david’s back so solidly as his dad, david seems to trust his dad and finally….i think david turned out pretty well as far as raising kids go….so I ain’t gonna be judging Jeff.

  174. Candy says:

    Hey Miss Vicki-not sure what radio station you listen to…but hes on most stations what seems like a 100 times a day! His songs are played so much they seem to be stuck on repeat.

  175. Candy says:

    Me either Shanny-every parent makes mistakes, and yes hes made so lulu’s but hopefully hes learned from them. I look at it this way, if David can forgive him, then the least I can do as a fan that admires and loves David is to do the same.

  176. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    angelbymyside….what an awesome photo of David at 9:51 pm…so, so handsome….Miss Vicki

  177. Shanny in Australia says:

    What happens when the snow starts melting Nora? Are there rivers of water everywhere or does it just kind of evaporate?
    To me, New England always sounded like a beautiful area to live. :-)

  178. Candy says:

    Good Night All- didnt get much sleep last night with the storm howling outside.

  179. ksf says:

    Can’t sleep.

    Lol Miss Vicki. I think there are millions of fans who might disagree on the Biebs. I’m not a fan of his music but professionally he’s clearly doing something right.

  180. Shanny in Australia says:

    Sleep better tonight then Candy. And I agree – david loves his dad, that’s good enough for me. :-)

  181. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey Candy…don’t listen to radio AT ALL…unless David is on and that’s about NEVER…..Like hearing Jason Mraz on music in stores here in his hometown of Mehanicsville (Richmond) Virginia though…..Just listen to David….and old Arlo Guthrie CD’s from the 1970′s…..Going to see Arlo next weekend in Hampton Rhoads since David is away……Miss Vicki

  182. ksf says:

    Of course David loves his dad. I’d hope that all our kids love us, warts and all. :)

  183. nora says:

    shanny, depending how much snow we get, it usually melts slowly and seeps back into the ground and lakes, ponds an such, if it lasts until spring, and we have a lot of rain, we can have small floods, or it winds up in our cellars, we have 2 pumps in our cellar, to pump it out. I really love living in New England, most of the time, can’t picture myself any place else, I love the 4 seasons.

  184. ksf says:

    To me, there is nothing to “forgive” as far as David’s father is concerned. Lol. I don’t know him. We are talking about things that happened or may not have happened in the past. I’m just not that emotionally involved to be holding grudges?

  185. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Love David….a cutie with the voice of an angel and Arlo, the scruffy old hippie from the 60′s with a raspy voice……What do the two have in common????….They are both idealistic and romantic in their own way…..Arlo wore a white jumpsuit and sang an Elvis song at Wolf Trap at a concert in DC many years ago and made me swoon……LOL….Night all…..Miss Vicki

  186. ksf says:

    Okay. Gonna try the sleep thing again. Night.

  187. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nora, oh that’s interesting. It would be kinda cool to experience it one day. Hope the water doesn’t end up in your cellar this time then!

    Nite nite Miss Vicki. :-)

  188. nora says:

    good night all, like Candy I didn’t sleep too well either, just thinking about the heat going off or trees falling, with the wind and snow beating against the windows, nice and quiet, but cold out there tonight, my thoughts are with the many who don’t have power and are in shelters for a few days, hope power returns to them soon. Good night again.

  189. Shanny in Australia says:

    Nite to you too Ksf. Hope you can sleep. :-)

  190. ksf says:

    thanks Shanny :)

    NEW THREAD

    Goodnight for reals.

  191. Goodnight everyone, just came from voting and have been lurking.
    Goodnight Nora, Ksf, Miss Vicki. get some rest.
    Am going to watch a little NA and some David vids until i get sleepy.
    See you all tomorrow, God Willing. Any one watching the Grammys tomorrow?

  192. DA says:

    Off topic: just throwing my 2 cents in. Dear Asia fans, when David goes back to Manila, please instruct the make up people not to overdo Davids already naturally gorgeous face. Why do they do that? TOO much makeup! And the HAIR. his hair looks perfect in the last Matt Clayton photoshoot. But in Asia for some reason they OVERKILL the hair lol! Overkill. Please show them
    A Matt C pic. Lol
