A Little Too Not Over ALTNOY

ALTNOY – the second single off that little red gem of a debut album – it should have been a radio smash hit! It had all the makings of the perfect pop lost-love anthem that teen girls just gobble up with a spoon – and don’t get me started on why the music vid didn’t go straight to #1 on the VH1 Top 20 Countdown the day it premiered!

This is one of my all time favorite songs, not only because David sings it (though that has a lot to do with it lol), but because it’s a look at the flip side of your first crush – the heart wrenching aftermath that follows a breakup, and that sinking feeling that your whole world is crumbling around you and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. Much like Crush, it’s a song that everyone can relate to – it touches a collective nerve that resonates long after you’ve hit the delete button on your camera.

This task may be a little too hard to accomplish, but please watch our nominated vids, then vote for your fave on our poll – which vid do you want to see at our Virtual concert?  Note the hunkerdowns and when he points to the fans and sings ” A little too not over youuuuuuu” *SCREAMSSSS*

 

 

 

 

 

First up is a lovely acoustic version nominated by our very own Pastel – I love anything acoustic by David – minimal music, and David’s voice just shines!  Add him playing the piano, and we have a winning combination!

Shelley submitted the next nomination with an awesome vid from Boise, ID!  I was there, and it was a WILD crowd!  The energy was through the roof, and the stage was low so it felt really up close and personal!  Watch Leslie Roy come out and give David a big hug – the crowd went crazy!

Narcisa submitted the next two nominations – the first is from The Glass House in Pomona, CA – I was also at this concert and we were packed in like sardines!  David was on FIRE and it sure was HOT in that venue – everyone was sweating like… no other!  The second vid is from SLC – David is always at his best when he performs for the home crowd, and this vid is no different.  Enjoy!

Next up is a nomination from our very own Joanie! Duluth, MN with the atmospheric smoke machine effects and colorful lighting – Starrynites01 was in the front row! Love when he has Eli take a group pic of David with the audience! And he wore purple!

Reno, NV was another wild & crazy concert!  The venue was PACKED and there were a lot of teen fans who were eager to push their way to the front of the stage!  We needed body armor for this show!  Oh, I was at this concert too (sensing a theme here…)  I love this video because you can see the stage and the band – good times my friends, good times!

Remember Nashville? We got a Vlog!

Has it really been three years ago today since this “Back in Nashville” vlog?  I dare you to watch this vlog and not be grinning from ear to ear!  He’s so happy and bubbly and excited to be writing with Joy Williams!  We get to meet Joy and her hubby Nate who graciously hosted David at their house while he was in Nashville – David as a house guest, let’s ponder that for a second…. Ok back to reality, this vlog is so adorbs because he’s wearing a beanie, and he’s so expressive when he describes seeing Syesha in Dream Girls — Like WHOA!  Take a trip down memory lane, with a stopover in lovely Nashville, TN.

While David was in Nashville, he wrote with Joy and several other talented writers.  This pic shows him with Andrew Fromm, Joy Williams and Matt Brownalee who together wrote Notice Me – which is featured on the upcoming No Matter How Far album!  So Nashville serves up some awesome music for us to enjoy – Thanks Nashville!

ALTNOY Memories That Never Fade

This is a really great song and a really great music vid!  Not sure why the US can’t view the official VEVO Music Vid, and the “Making of ALTNOY” vid for some reason you can’t hear the audio clearly – anyway, let’s take a walk down memory lane with some pics and vids!

  25. Elysian says:

    Hi Everyone!!

    Just stopping by for a few minutes before I go out to dinner with the family, but I wanted to thank Kalei for the AWESOME and jam packed post today honoring ALTNOY. Like the rest of you here, I LOOOOVE that song and I could never understand why it, and its AMAZING video, did not become MEGA hits. The song was more mature in tone and subject matter than Crush, and I thought was even more marketable than Crush. Moreover, the video gave us our first glimpse of angsty David, which he does SOOOO well! :smile: Its great that ALTNOY is getting the love and respect it deserves in this super post!!

    By the way sarahhazel, ALNOY is my favorite MV of David’s as well. He and his female co-star are adorable together!!!! They seem like they had real chemistry, but I guess he always looks like he has real chemistry with his female leads LOL!

  26. Elysian says:

    WOO HOOO!! Congrats to you all for getting Don’t Run Away up to 30,000 votes!!! It deserves that and tons more! :smile:

  27. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hey all…I’m still here….Just been working a lot and lurking a lot…I JUST LOVE ACOUSTIC ATLNOY!!!!! Happy Friday everyone….Miss Vicki

  28. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    I meant ALTNOY…Miss Vicki

  29. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    tami…Referencing your coment at 11:06 AM this morning….What is this about David having a secret girlfriend in Utah????

  30. Elysian says:

    Ooops, I meant views not votes.

    The family is waiting so I have to go. Have a wonderful evening and weekend eveyone!

  31. tami says:

    hi miss vicki~ i don’t know. in yesterday’s comments someone posted a tweet from a girl in california who said~just found out today that david has a GF in utah. can’t sleep. i’m in shock! so i ask her if it was mietra but she never replied. so now i’m wondering~ 1. how did she find out? 2. why is she shocked? 3. is it for real or was she just trying to get attention on twitter? another mystery to solve! lol

  32. Anita says:

    It was crazy that ALTNOY never became a hit. Ridiculous if you ask me! It’s always been one of my favorite David songs. His vocals are sure stellar in those videos! David’s vlog from Nashville is one of the cutest things ever!! I’ve watched it a gazillion times since it was first posted in 2010! Wow, I’m rather surprised how quiet it is around here today.

  33. tami says:

    anita~ i also am disappointed that ALTNOY never got much radio play, thought it could have been a big hit for david. for some unknown reason DJs would not play it. don’t understand it to this day :( i’m also surprised how quiet it is. where is everyone? or is there nothing left to talk about? :(

  34. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Anita, tami, Miss Vicki, sarahhazel and booo. Sure is quiet here. I’ve been lurking all day between twitter and here. I’m speechless Kalei and I’m still not a little too not over you know who. Never will be. Glad to see Don’t Run Away reached 30,000 views. I viewed it quite a bit tonight. No problem because I loved it. Haven’t heard from Shanny lately, hope she’s okay.

  35. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Hi supergrandjudie…Hope Shanny is Ok too….tami…interesting about the secret GF in Utah….bet it’s Ashley…..I know I haven’t been here a lot this week…Is tonight unusually quiet or what????? Gotta go now….having to get up early to go to my nephew’s wedding tomorrow and it is several hours away….Miss Vicki

  36. bobanna says:

    Hi. I was in chat, lost connection and now it won’t let me back in cause it’s past 11:00. I just wanted to say goodnight to DiWi,DFT,El,Donna and Andy. (((HUGS))) to all and wishing them a wonderful weekend! Don’t want them to think I left without saying Bye.

  37. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Miss Vicki, it has been quiet here. We are all taking a little break after huggung (voting) on hthe Ryan Poll for a few weeks. It’s over now so that’s that. Still putting some votes in other polls. A lot are on twitter requesting and plugging Don’t Run Away. Going to watch SNL tomorrow. Justin Timberlake is on. Kari is in New York with him. Kari ran into Karin(zerogravity) at Starbucks in N.Y. this morning. How about that! That’s all I got!

  38. J/S says:

    Bieber has lost his mind…thank God for David.

  39. Janel aka Nellie says:

    As for me, I spent 6 hours at a Girl scout cookie booth. Did very well! But, I’m tired! Think I might sleep forever. LOL…..doing 6 more hours tomorrow. Need my David music to lull me to sleep.

  40. cc halo says:

    Hi Miss Vicki – Ashlee’s Facebook is full of photos of her with her boyfriend of over two years, don’t think it’s her.

  41. stop says:

    Hi all, first of all David said he doesn’t want his fans to know about his girl friend if he has one(in one of his interviewed). In the past some fans gave his friend a hard time thinking that she is his girlfriends. Get marry at 25 is a good number for him just like Robin Williams he got married when he was 25 y/o. David is a late bloomer and a smart one he knows his fans are knowsies;)))))) And also if people using my daughter or my niece name throwing around on a blog site not even half true I will be p..st off too. Like Ashlee her boyfriend probably get annoyed at that maybe…. So David u can have a girlfriend and get marry when ever u want to and I’ll be happy for u and u can keep it in a secret too.

  42. potluck8 says:

    Good morning, I wish Kari would post the Dougie, but I guess she is busy with Justin T. Speaking of Justin, what did JB do now? I can’t wait for the concert next week and the E aster devotional, sure hope Gladys will keep us informed. Have a great day!

  43. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD! HAPPY WEEKEND! SUNNY here at the beach…makes the day even better! Plus the stickybuns I brought bake from PA and coffee….sure hits the spot!!

    ENJOY YOUR DAY and David time guys! :)

  44. Jhen says:

    Hello everyone! I think David will keep it as a secret the identity of his girlfriend, if he will have girlfriend someday. He seems very private when it comes to love life and family. I have a feeling he don’t have a girlfriend when he left for mission. But who knows after his mission, he will find a girlfriend whom he will marry, I guess she will be a LDS.

  45. Kimberly Ann says:

    good morning peeps!!!

    lol still on his secret gf!?
    guess we’ll find out when he gets back!!
    had company last couple days… anything cooking!?
    saw there was a little something something about a changed NMHF release date?!

  46. Kimberly Ann says:

    Jhen bet she will be lds.. or convert.

  47. Jhen says:

    Kimberly- it could be easier for David if she will be LDS or convert, because they will have the same mind and believe.

  48. Candy says:

    Aww yes, the secret, not so secret girlfriend…..
    Stop- have no idea what you were talking about…using your daughter or nieces name??

    Crazy weather here in Jersey, Snow yesterday…60 today! Im so ready to welcome spring!

  49. cq-DA2014 says:

    Jhen,it’s not just it would be best, he would need to marry LDS to be in good standing with the church. No one is able to go inside a Temple that isn’t LDS and being sealed in Temple is a huge part of the religion.

  50. tami says:

    on one hand, i find it annoying/frustrating that david doesn’t want to share personal things with us but on the other hand, it makes him more mysterious and fascinating! lol stop~ when you’re a famous person of course your fans are going to be interested in who your BF/GF is. if david didn’t want the attention or fame why did he go on idol ?? cuz u are kinda acting like u know him. why all the secrecy? i don’t get it.
