Love Affair ~ Forevermore

It’s the day after Valentine’s Day, and love is still in the air!  David is a master of the love song – from the butterflies-in-your-stomach pangs of your first Crush to the wonderment and magic that There’s Something ‘Bout Love to the bittersweet heartbreak of being A Little Too Not Over You – David’s ability to interpret and communicate these emotions is a big part of what draws us to his music and keeps us craving more.

Can you believe it’s been a whole year since we first learned that David was releasing an OPM album of love songs as a gift to his fans in the Philippines, as well as to fans around the world?  He was busy filming Nandito Ako, but still took time to create an album that celebrates love and was made with love for us, his fans, who are always suckers for a love song…. especially if it’s a love song being sung by David.

The Official Forevermore Music Video

Filmed at Pin’s home, the official music video of Forevermore is pure dreamy romance resplendent with long, soulful gazing into the distance and all those close-ups of his hands and eyes – it’s no wonder that the vid has garnered over 1.7 million views – well on its way to 2 million!  Let’s give it a few more views, shall we?

Hearts all over the world tonight….

While we’re on the topic of love, there’s a song that David sang on American Idol that I think he got a bad rap for (no it’s not a rap song) – and while it wasn’t his most stellar performance, primarily due to being a bit nervous, I still think his rendition was better than the original.  David chose it because it was a pop song, better suited to his age, and I think he was trying to break away from just being known as the “ballad singer”.

It wasn’t polished or perfect, and the dancing was a bit awkward (we love awkward) but I do think that if David performed it today, given his additional years of experience on stage and that he’s become much more comfortable performing live and moving and dancing on stage – I bet he would KILL IT!  Just imagine him singing this in Spanish with an Enrique Iglesias kind of vibe!

    OMG MY HEART IS MELTING. RT: @CanadianArchie: this valentine message from @DavidArchie made my day! http://youtu.be/s8ZatFpz450

    Jake Updegraff ‏@OnAirJake
    @DavidArchie I love you.

  21. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    OoO ha a hot one.

  22. ksf says:

    I wonder if that tracklist is legit? If so, I’m happy to see Notice Me and She’s Not You on there but DISTRAUGHT that Senseless is not. WHAT?? Oh my lort!! That’s right, I said ‘lort.’ That’s how devastated I am. Don’t try to console me. I cannot believe it. I’m inconsolable.

    Lol. At the doctor’s office having to get a Glucose Test done. It’s a 2 hour test. Yuck! Oh well, guess I’ll catch up on some reading. 🙂

  23. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    No Matter How Far ‏@CanadianArchie
    Hi @kariontour idk but I’ll ask anyway. Perhaps when would we be able to see the @DavidArchie tracklist for #daNMHF2013 ?? “SOON”?? 😉

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @CanadianArchie @DavidArchie sure! 🙂

  24. cq#DA2014 says:

    Thank you Kalei for the awesome TGIF post.
    Can’t wait until it will be less than 10 months before OUR MAN returns…single digits just seems so much better, lol.

  25. Philly Fan says:

    Of all the leaked tracks please let “Senseless” be on this cd. I’m BEGGING lol

  26. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    heart echoes ‏@nareejo
    @kariontour Happy Friday, too! Is something special happening to day to make it a really Happy Friday??? lol… #anticipation

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @nareejo you never know

    ha she sure is a PIP!!

  27. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    Philly fan love Senseless!

  28. ksf says:

    Philly Fan – I’m with ya. See 10:59. It would be a tragedy of EPIC proportions if that lil’ gem didn’t make it on the album. And that’s stating it lightly.

  29. sarahhazel says:

    Happy TGIF, everyone! Thanks for the wonderful post, Kalei!
    DA14 passes today, 2:24 pm EST….exciting and kinda scary too…..yikes!
    Hope we see the official tracklist s**n! I’d love to see Senseless in that album too!
    Driving to CA tomorrow morning….had a fun time yesterday sightseeing, eating and shopping here in Vegas….thinking of relaxing mostly today….no gambling….haha…

  30. Philly Fan says:

    Ksf! if it is not on the cd I will have to download it somehow from ytube and believe me I’m not into that or do I know how to do it. But I will get it somehow. That song spoke to me upon first listen and I love the angst in David’s voice in that song. lol

  31. tami lyn says:

    no senseless??! 🙁 that is senseless

  32. LaLiliana says:

    ksf-I have been listening to Senseless and boy he is leaving me all kinds of breathless so I say double lort if it’s not on .NMHF.

  33. KCArchie says:

    If that list is accurate, it’s good that some of the songs released on the Asian Edition of TOSOD might be released on a CD here in the States, but I’m way more eager for the ones I haven’t heard. Heh…

  34. ksf says:

    Philly Fan – Oh my Lort…I understand. Desperate measures. David, please don’t turn your fans into Illegals! You have the power to make a difference! LOL.

    tami lyn – haha! If this list is somehow the real thing the I totally agree.

    LaLiliana – ROFL! 😆 “Double lort” is right!

  35. Grannycrush says:

    Personally, just the fact that David is giving us another album so soon after BEGIN., I don’t think I will be disappointed if my favorite is not on the album. I do believe there are many aspects of chosing songs that we don’t know about. Do the writers or co-writers have to agree to have the songs on the album? Can they clean up the leaked demo to make it album ready? Many questions and the fact that David worked so hard to get things ready for us before he left, leaves me unable to be upset if the song I wanted on there doesn’t happen to be there.

  36. Philly Fan says:

    Ksf! I will be definitely desperate and will turn into an illegal for that one song. Cause in my opinion it is definitely not right for that song not be on tracklist. lol

  37. tami lyn says:

    good morning u guys! 🙂 where is this alleged list?! the link from earlier this morning i clicked on took me to someone’s twitter page! ???

  38. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    Kari responded to a tweet earlier that it’s not the official tracklist. And that unless it’s from twitter, facebook, or his official site, then it’s not real. I will have to find the tweet and bring it over here.

  39. ksf says:

    KCArchie – yeah I’m really eager to hear those too

    Grannycrush – I feel the same way — grateful that David took the time to do what he’s done. We’re just being slightly silly. 🙂

    Philly Fan – Nope. It ain’t right.

  40. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    Here it is:

    Kari Sellards ‏@kariontour
    @nareejo saw it a while ago and no it is not! have told y’all if you don’t see it on his twitter, OS or FB most of the time it is not true.

  41. LaLiliana says:

    Grannycrush- I get that. Please excuse me as I was just being dramatic. I absolutely agree we are so very lucky to get all this music even with David being gone. As I was looking at the Youtubes for Senseless I did notice it has a lot of hits. But if the writer/s or all the powers that be connected to this song are not on board, it doesn’t matter what we want.
    I just like to let the Powers That Be know how much I like this song in case they monitor for fan requests. 😉

  42. ksf says:

    tami lyn – Poco posted it @ 9:57.

    Joy4Archie – Thanks! I didn’t think so but it’s fun to get silly and hysterical and distraught anyway. Lol.

  43. ksf says:

    LaLiliana – Amen to that!

  44. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    Ksf- I know right? It gets us all talking about something at least and gets us excited for things to come. I can’t wait to get the official one. I really hope Senseless is on there. I can’t wait to hear the mastered version of that song, instead of just the demo.

  45. OoO says:

    Let Me Go is not on but heck yeah I’m happy because we getting 17 more songs to go crazy about. But I wanna know why David didn’t escaping the pain before he get crush by these beautiful distractions. U gotta run cause you know they are not a very good liar. Sorry guys I am a little too happy today just ignore me.

  46. Grannycrush says:

    That Behind the Scenes with Arlu was just so good. I loved how he said David had the song recorded before he got his cameras ready. People have said that before from the very beginning that David can get a perfect recording done so fast. He doesn’t need a bunch of takes and autotune to make him sound good. I love the picture of David and the keyboard.

  47. ksf says:

    Joy4archie – wow…the cleaned up version of Senseless would just slay us. I can’t. It’s just too much… We’ll definitely have to keep our fingers crossed!

  48. OoO says:

    Oh not a real list? But I am sure it is pretty close to it. So Senseless still have a chance hah.

  49. Philly Fan says:

    FYI….Seriously I also am grateful for anything that we get while he is away. Just really being a little playful. But still want it on the cd if possible. Because I love that song. lol

  50. LaLiliana says:

    OoO When I first heard Let Me Go, I thought “hmm” what’s this about? But I really liked it. Got the Deluxe edition of the album and I still play it bunches.

    Call me quirky but I like Your Eyes Don’t Lie. I heard it live in San Antonio and he was so cool and the whistling too. Think it’s time to go back in time and revisit some of the live performances. Thanks to David and co. we have lots to sample.

  51. Philly Fan says:

    U-know I really love any song David recorded and put out but there are just some songs that really inspire me to continue to play over and over again. Have to say I love his songs on “Forever More” cd because his voice sounds stellar to me. Love his first cd and out of the leaked songs of “Senseless” is my favorite along with “She’s Not You” off of TOSOD “Who I AM” and off Begin just love his version of “True Colors”. Actually love them all but these are my standouts.

  52. KCArchie says:

    NAVGL, If I Could Only Be, Senseless, She’s Not You – those are songs that need to be on the CD. Because they are pretty much unreleased. There’s no way to currently buy them, yet we’ve heard them before at concerts and leaked studio versions.

    It would be a bit redundant for some of those other songs (like Notice Me, Wait, etc.) to be released yet again. haha. I love them and all, but yeah.

  53. ksf says:

    sarahhazel – Good that you’ve got your gambling under control. Lol. Enjoy the rest of your trip. 🙂

  54. LaLiliana says:

    Wow I forgot how wooh wooh this sounds. This is YEDL in Manila and he sounds more mature singing it then when I heard it in San Antonio. Hope you enjoy. The screen behind David made me a little queasy when I would look at it so if you are prone to motion sickness just focus on David. Yeah, like we don’t do that already for the most part. ha ha


  55. Janel aka Nellie says:

    rt echoes‏@nareejo

    @kariontour there was a tracklist released earlier..did you see it? is it true? 16 songs?? lol

    Kari Sellards‏@kariontour

    @nareejo saw it a while ago and no it is not! have told y’all if you don’t see it on his twitter, OS or FB most of the time it is not true.

  56. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    ksf Yes Senseless would slay us for sure. lol But in a good way. 😆

    KCArchie I can’t wait to see what all songs are on there. I’m ready to start spazzing.

  57. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    going to venture a guess Senseless is not on the cd.


    good song but
    the lyrics.. just don’t fit him? I
    can’t imagine him ever feeling that lost
    but then again why on earth would anyone hurt him like that.

  58. Philly Fan says:

    Kim….Maybe so that it don’t fit him but he sure sung it like it did. lol

  59. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Video Pick of the Day A Thousand Miles (and funny banter) on the Todd and Erin Show, B98.7 SLC. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzI2C3FABXY

  60. OoO says:


  61. Joy4archieDA14 says:

    I just love how David can make us feel a song, even when he hasn’t went through that emotion. He’s just so talented.

  62. LaLiliana says:

    I am not so sure David would never sing Senseless on the album. He did a bunch of love songs on Forevermore and according to what we know he hasn’t experienced all those love connections. He really sounds like one hot Honduran on this song. All angsty and passionate and devastated.

    I must go now before my bubble bursts.. ha ha just being dramatic again.

  63. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Saw my co-leader Jerianne at the store this morning (I recruited her into a serious David fan. LOL) She had her little girl Sammy Jo with her (she’s almost 5) and she heard us talking about David. She said “I like “Bam-Bam-Bam”. Jerianne knew what she was talking about and told me. Let’s see if you all know your David songs well enough to know which song Sammy-Jo is talking about (or her interpretation of what he’s saying). He-he.

  64. tami lyn says:

    la liliana~ i know what u mean! i prefer angsty, passionate david to smiley rainbow david! LOL 🙂

  65. LaLiliana says:

    Yes sir ree me too tami lyn. But one of the most exciting things about David is his many many facets. He is just wonderful! And there are just as many who love David’s happy view of the world. I love it too but life is not always like that and I love to hear David’s voice give me a song that is relatable to me in some of my not happiest times. I know from having lived quite a few years that there is always hope but to have my less than happy feelings acknowledged helps me to feel I am not the only one.

  66. ksf says:

    Kim – At this point I don’t CARE what suits him. I just want that SONG!!! Lol. LaLiliana is right. On Forevermore he sang plenty of songs he couldn’t relate to. It’s a great song so he needs to look past it and put it on the album!! (I’m only half kidding).

  67. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ well said!!! my thoughts exactly!

  68. tami lyn says:

    u don’t have to live it to sing it. david has an imagination like the rest of us doesn’t he??! lol 🙂

  69. ksf says:

    Listening to AM in the car. That girl just blows me away. Her passion and voice are just a-mazing and the lyrics of that song…gah!! The only annoying part is Randy in the background. Lol.

  70. tami lyn says:

    maybe the final 2 will be angie vs. lazaro! 🙂

  71. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    ha.. he sure did sing it very well indeed!!

  72. ksf says:

    tami lyn – Boof, girl! So right. I’m tired of always hearing that. If he can only perform what he relates to, he never could have done NA or countless other projects either. A great song is a great song so just do it. Maybe some of his fans CAN relate to it. He can just follow it up with a really inspirational song on the album if that makes him feel better. All of this may be moot cause maybe there’s a reason he CAN’T put it on the album or maybe it will actually be on the album after all. 🙂
    I’m anxious to see.

  73. Joy4archieDA2014 says:

    Tami Lyn That would be great if they were the final two.
    Both have really great voices and stand out to me.

  74. ksf says:

    tami lyn – if there’s any justice she has to be in the Final 2.

  75. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ yeah maybe there is some complicated legal reason why he doesn’t have clearance or permission to use it on this album 🙁

    boof! 😉

  76. ksf says:

    tami lyn – Is Lazaro the guy that is deaf?

  77. tami lyn says:

    wonder if david’s been able to see any of idol while it’s on someone’s TV while he’s visiting with them?

  78. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I LOVE SENSELESS!!! When that leaked I couldn’t stop listening to it! I hope it’s on the CD but I guess we’ll find out too. Really hard to know what’s going on behind the David team scene.

  79. breanne says:

    I LOVE what Latina Magazine said about David “he’s all grown up and smoking hot!”
    What I love about David is he is all that & doesn’t even realize it!! 🙂

    Be sure to find the radio stations in your area that play HAC, AC or pop & request “Don’t Run Away” on those stations:

    At this site you can find US or international radio stations, their format, site link http://radio-locator.com/

    and this is what Kari tweeted:
    Kari Sellards‏@kariontour

    @suttygal @mlpb3 the single was “full serviced” meaning it was sent out to all Pop, Hot AC and AC stations in the country.

  80. tami lyn says:

    so after it gets sent out then who makes the decision if it gets played and why or why not?

  81. Grannycrush says:

    Janel I can’t figure out what song “Bam Bam Bam” unless it is Drummer Boy. Give me another hint, please.

  82. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ lazaro is the cutie who stutters! OMG HE IS SO CUTE! his birthday is one day before david’s! what a freaky coincidence and he is david fan!!! 🙂

  83. Lucy says:

    So has it been officially released to the radios? I’m kinda confused, I thought we would get a tweet from Kari when we can start requesting it…

  84. KCArchie says:

    Lol uh, I have no idea what people are talking about, other than David. David, David, David Archuleta is amazing~

    No Matter How Far comes out 9 days after my birthday. 😉

  85. ksf says:

    tami lyn – Oh yeah! I know who he is now. He IS a cutie! 🙂

  86. ksf says:

    KCarchie – No argument there. He certainly is. But he would be blown away by the peeps we’re talking about because they are just as amazing. If he was here he’d be squeeing right along with us. 😆

    On David’s first tour I absolutely loved his medley of songs. Especially the way he perform “One”. Talk about a song that might not fit. lol Well he took and performed that song live and it just blew me away. How I wished he would have done the whole song. Also loved the other covers in the medley. lol

  94. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    Philly fan me too maybe one day. Barriers is another song.
    I loved his first tour and his first cd.. a bit more mainstream.
    who knows what he will do when he gets back.
    I hope he goes for it and grabs the brass ring!

  95. Philly Fan says:

    David sings “ANGST” with a vegenance. lol It brings out that beautiful tone in his voice. Just sayin….

  96. Philly Fan says:

    My hope formusic from David when he returns would be mainstream with love songs especially in Spanish. Breakup songs would be good to just like Adele’s.

  97. ksf says:

    Philly Fan @ 3:37 – He certainly does. That’s why Heaven completely slays my life. That’s another one I’d LOVE for him to record.

  98. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran!! says:

    Philly Fan maybe Heart Falls Out will have some of that.

  99. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran!! says:

    Spanish and Adele songs sound fabulous!!

  100. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimberly Ann, I’m with you I sure hope he grabs the brass ring.
    Philly fan, yes I love the angst in his voice and I agree that it really brings out the beauty of the tone of his voice, sigh, wishing he was here to promote his work…
    So excited to gets my hands on that album, don’t care what songs…I know I’ll love them all…

  104. ksf says:

    I’m sorry guys but I can’t resist. We really do need different forums on this site. This posting would go under the “Music That David Would Love/Amazing Talent.” forum. Lol. Feel free to scroll past if you must.


  105. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Grannycrush your hint is Motabs

  106. Grannycrush says:

    Janel Gesu Bambino?

  107. cq#DA2014 says:

    ksf, I think you need to start a fan site for her, then the fans that agree with you would go over to comment and spazz about her.

  108. tami lyn says:

    my fav girl is kez ban! she’s kooky but her voice has that cool jazzy thing i love. i’m thinkin it’s probably just like with nicki, people either love her or hate her

  109. tami lyn says:

    there are already lots of fansites for supercutie lazaro! i think he will inspire fans to be fanatic just like we david fans are! it’s not just about his voice, it’s everything about him, just like david!

  110. Tracy says:

    Ksf- Absolutley love Angie….she had me hooked right away. Then watching more of her on YT she reminds me so much of David, what a great talent musically and person.

  111. ksf says:

    cq – Not a bad idea. Actually, anytime we “spazz” about talented artists we also honor David since he LOVES talking about talent and great music. It takes nothing from him to do that, especially if that’s only A PART of what we talk about here. As I said earlier, if David wasn’t in Chile, he’d be sending out his usual tweets about the amazing artists and music that is out there.

  112. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ so true! david has always been an american idol fan! another thing we have in common with him! 🙂 he definitely would not begrudge us spazzing over our new favs on idol!
    boof! 😉

  113. Tracy says:

    Omg the more I watch her videos in that link you posted Ksf, she is fantastic. If she isn’t in the top two or the winner then I don’t know. I would buy her album right now. Her covers are better then the originals by far another reason she reminds me of David.

  114. ksf says:

    tami lyn – kez ban was a trip. Lol. Definitely unique. There are already fan sites for Lazaro? Wow. Didn’t know that!

    Tracy – ITA clearly. LOL. She’s so much like David. I’ve also been hooked on her YT videos. Simply amazing and definitely seems like a grounded, spiritual person. I sooo wish David could hear her!!

  115. tami lyn says:

    ok for those of u are probably getting annoyed by my continuous use of boof! it’s from me and ksf’s privatge convo on twitter. i was talking about the book of mormon but instead i typed boof of mormon! and instead of fixing my typo decided i would use it as our secret code word but now it’s not secret anymore LOL! just in case anyone was wondering

  116. tami lyn says:

    just looked at lazaro’s twitter. he loves angie!!! 🙂

  117. Tracy says:

    For sure if David was here and watching he’d be telling us to check her out. I wish he could chech her out lol, what a perfect match.

  118. ksf says:

    tami lyn @5:40 – Boof! There it is! LOL. So true.

    Tracy @5:41 – Yes, yes, and absolutely “yes!” to everything you said. I’d like to submit a pre-order for her album for whenever she records it.

  119. tami lyn says:

    LOL! 🙂

  120. ksf says:

    tami lyn – You let the secret out?? LOL 😆
    That’s cool that Lazaro likes Angie.

    Tracy – yep 🙂

  121. tami lyn says:

    so now we can make a new secret word, lol!

  122. Tracy says:

    I like Lazaro too, he seems like a real nice guy ad it’s cool he likes David. I think I need to hear him sing more cause im not sure just yet about his voice. It is amazing that he doesn’t stutter when he sing though. 🙂

  123. cq#DA2014 says:

    Ok I get that this Angie chick is great, but going gaga on David site is kinda weird imo.
    I know that David would like her and would comment, but enough please.

  124. ksf says:

    tami lyn – okay. 😉

    Tracy – Isn’t that amazing? I’ve noticed that about a lot of people — when they sing their accent or any impediments seem to vanish. Btw, have you seen Angela’s YT performance vid — “District Council 2010”? Gorgeous song.

  125. tami lyn says:

    tracy~ yeah last time he sang they only showed a few seconds of it so i’m looking forward to hearing him sing an actual song! 🙂

  126. ksf says:

    cq – 🙂

    tami lyn – Have you checked YT?

  127. tami lyn says:

    don’t know if u guys heard it but he was singing edge of glory by lady gaga. the little bit they showed sounded really good!
    cq~ what do u want to talk about?

  128. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ u mean angie on YT? yes i watched several of her videos!

  129. ksf says:

    tami lyn – I meant have you checked to see if there are any Lazaro vids on YT.

  130. tami lyn says:

    only negative thing i would say about angie’s voice is maybe a lack of uniqueness in the tone. like if i just heard the voice don’t know if i would recognize it as hers, if that makes sense. like the problem pia toscano had. an amazing voice but not super recognizable.

  131. tami lyn says:


  132. josie says:

    ksf~ 1:46-“Is Lazaro the guy that is deaf?” Um..noooooo. lolol. Janel~ Would “Bam-Bam-Bam” be…”Pat-A-Pan?” 🙂

  133. ksf says:

    tami lyn @ 6:41 – I know what you’re saying but I think her voice is unique. I’d definitely recognize her tone, her phrasing, anywhere.

    josie – Lol! Well, I knew it was something that was different about him.

  134. Tracy says:

    Yup she’s unique to me.

  135. cq#DA2014 says:

    Ksf, you are so right, not having David here is so different and of course, it really leaves less and less stuff to talk about David, but he did leave us with music to speculate about that is going to be release next month and of course, if his single had done real well on the charts, maybe the conversation would be about him. I realize that everything can’t be about David, so your right, go ahead do what you must. I’ll stop commenting for now.

  136. ksf says:

    Tracy – Another thing that reminds me of David is that she sings like she does in spite of a challenge. She has a hearing loss — I think 40% in her right ear and 20% in the left. Kinda reminds me of David and vocal paralysis. Neither of them let these things stop them.

  137. ksf says:

    cq – You don’t have to stop commenting. If there’s something else you want to talk about then post. I just think that getting excited about music is what David is all about, even if its not directly about him.

  138. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Evening all. Hope all had a lovely Valentines Day. Kalei, great post as usual. The pics and videos were fun to see and hear again. I love the Forevermore pictures. The one at the keyboard shows him in a different light. I like it. The convo is very interesting. As to the songs, we’ll just have to wait and see. “Anticipation”!! As long as I can hear his VOICE, that’s all I need. So now we have a smokin’ hot Honduran on our hands. Yeah we knew that. 😆 😆

  139. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Janel- Drummer Boy???

  140. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    😉 There I go again. I clear a room every time. Anybody there??

  141. SGJ>>>> I’m here. Have been lurking since i got home. Didn’t have much to add.
    Getting ready to go to church for the Stations of the cross. My confirmation kids are participating.
    So i will be leaving again. I wish the would bring FOREVERMORE to the states. He sings it so beautiful.

  142. tami lyn says:

    sorry i was on the phone!!! ksf~ you’re probably right, i just need to listen to more of her videos to hear the special things she does.

  143. manderbee says:

    I bet its Los Pastores a Belen

  144. tami lyn says:

    cq~ i have a question for u and of course u don’t have to answer. usually i can get a feel if someone is male or female but with u i can’t tell. would u mind telling us? if not i understand.

  145. tami lyn says:

    hi SGJ! 🙂

  146. cq#DA2014 says:

    Of my gosh Tami lyn, I have no problem answering your question, lol. I am female. So funny that you had a hard time figuring out what sex I was.
    Ksf, I know what mean, yes, as I said you are right, nothing going on right now in regards to David, so should be glad that at least the site is active. I’m such weirdo sometimes about fans forgetting about him that I go a little goffy, lol

  147. tami lyn says:

    cq~ thanks for answering 🙂 i wish i could think of something interesting to say about david! all i can think to say is~ i’m very grateful he did this new album for us, i think this was way beyond all our expectations but i just wish he would come home. my fear is that when he does come home he won’t tour and i will never get to meet him 🙁

  148. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi tami lyn. 😀 Hi Linda 😀 Gonna be a three day holiday weekend. Wish I was going somewhere. It was 55 degrees today here in N.J. Smelled like spring . Loved it. Wonder if David got our Valentine mail yet. Wish I knew when we could start requesting DRA. I’d love to hear his song playing on the radio. Just before they announced the new album, I was at my daughters for a few days. She told me that when she stopped in WaWa for coffee on her way to work they were playing David Archuleta “Crush”. That’s how dhe put it. At the same time my grandaughter and I were playing scrabble on my IPad. Out of know where A picture of “Christmas From The Heart” album picture appeared. I said, It’s David, all the way from Chile!! He’s trying to tell us something. I know, I need a rest home. But yea, it was sure weird. The next day the NMHF album was announced. 😀

  149. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    * that’s how she put it* sorry

  150. ksf says:

    Hi sgj & Linda! 🙂 Stepped away for a while for dinner and now family time.

    tami lyn – maybe or maybe she’s just not your cup o’ tea. That’s fine too. 🙂

    cq – No worries about that. Lol. There’s zero chance of that happening. 🙂

  151. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi ksf- Glad you have time to come here. Missed you a lot. I lurked the other day and by time I was going to jump in, it was getting hot in here. Anyway, glad you are here.

  152. tami lyn says:

    the other thing that bothers me is~ we never got to find out david’s real feelings for jasmine. she made it quite clear that the chemistry between them was real. and i love that she was willing to share that with the NA fans but it’s the kind of thing david won’t share, and while i understand he wants to keep things private, that is the very thing that makes me believe he is not interested in the kind of fame that means fans get to hear about his personal life. it’s healthier for him as a person of course but for us fans it means things can get boring and if we want to find out anything that he does or feels we need to be super ninjas.

  153. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ no i think she’s awesome especially because she sang in church and lead the WT so i always find that interesting and very nice! guess i just lean more to the kooky types like kez ban cuz there is no mistaking her for someone else. and this is what happened to one of my good friends. amazing amazing voice, she sang in church and school and community events and then moved to nashville and everyone thought she would be a big star but it didn’t happen and i think it’s cuz when u hear her on the radio we aren’t sure it’s her. she sounds alot like a couple of other big country stars and maybe she will still get her big break someday but it’s just so weird cuz her voice is so amazing live like david but not super unique.

  154. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn- I know what you mean. I’m hoping when he is interested in someone we will know. We might not hear it from him, but the girl he is interested in will have people she knows acknowledge it. If I were the lucky girl I’d want the whole world to know that I was in love with the sweetest person on earth, David Archuleta. (Cough) (cough). Getting a little carried away. I just hope I live long enough to see him with someone he loves and makes him happy. 😀

  155. ksf says:

    sgj – thanks! It’s good to “see” you too. You always have the most wonderful things to say. 🙂 Any plans for the three day weekend?

    tami lyn – Yeah I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during NA to see how they interacted between scenes and filming. But, I understand the need to keep some things private, even though we’re dying to know. As far as Angie goes, hopefully that doesn’t happen to her and she gets signed even if she doesn’t win AI. I have to have her music. I think I officially have OAD. 😆

  156. ksf says:

    sgj @8:50 – ITA about wanting the whole world to know. Even if I didn’t tell them I think people would know anyway from the permanent goofy grin that would be plastered on my face. Lol. Love has a way of doing that.

  157. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ yes it will be very interesting to see who gets in top 10! so weird how winning doe not guarantee success and then someone like jennifer hudson who comes in 7th goes on to have major success/fame. then we have the 2 davids who really don’t seems at all obsessed with fame. they just want to make a living doing music. hopefully they can continue to do so, seems to be getting harder every day.

  158. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    ksf- Unfortunately , no. How about you. This girl, Angie you are talking about. I watched the AI girls group night. She was the one in the orangey top on. I said to Mr. SGJ ,”Now out of all of them this girl is good”. Missed the next night. She has a terrific voice. Is her name Angel? Oh, David, we have an Angel for you!!!

  159. tami lyn says:

    2 more examples~ taylor and justin. clearly not the greatest singers but huge superstars! why, why, why??? does anything make sense anymore?! david should be way more famous than justin but maybe it’s as simple as~justin wants fame, david doesn’t. does not bode well for us.

  160. tami lyn says:

    don’t remember what interview it was but david said something to the effect that he wants fans to just focus on his music not his personal life. so as smart as david is, he doesn’t know/understand that fans want all of him not just his music.

  161. Elysian says:

    HI EVERYONE!!!!! I have been missing in action since Thanksgiving because I have been buried under an unrelenting series of HUMONGOUS projects at work that has taken me 2 1/2 months to finally complete. I was literally doing little more than working, sleeping and eating. Unfortunately, my home computer also crashed at Thanksgiving and I have been too busy at work to get it fixed, so I have had no access to the internet until now. Not being able to check on FOD everyday was the worst part!!! I have never gone more than a week without checking on FOD, and that was only when I was on vacation and had no internet service. I missed all of you so much and I am SOOOOOO HAPPY to be back!!!!!!!!!!!

  162. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    tami lyn- I agree, that being said I think he has seen all the trapings of fame on his travels. He is so astute that is why IMO he is going his own way and on his own terms. In that interview the other day he said he likes to do things his way. He is a fast learner and sees what the price of fame can and has done to people. Someone said he is a trailblazer and think people in the business are starting to take notice that the shy, rambling boy is a very smart young man who they hope makes it his way.

  163. ksf says:

    sgj – No, no plans. I’m kinda glad it’ll be a relaxing weekend. The girl from AI is Angela Miller. I actually didn’t pay much attention to the groups but her solo performance last night was absolutely incredible. She sang an original song and is pretty much the one to beat. Janel posted it last night but here it is if you haven’t seen it.


    This is both the shortened version from AI and the video of her singing the full version from YouTube.

  164. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Welcome back Elysian missed you. Aw sorry you had to work so hard. So what do you think about the new single DRA and the album coming No Matter How Far on March 26. David is so full of surprises.

  165. Elysian says:

    By the way I AM OVER THE MOON about David releasing another album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    YIPPEEEEEEE, WOWZAAAAAAAAAA, HOLY GUACOMOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I absolutely LOOOOVE Don’t Run Away, and I never imagined that after all he has already given us, we would get yet another album of music, and not just any music but songs that he he helped write!!! EGAD, I think that I have died and gone to HEAVEN!!!! David is too good to us! (Sorry about the unrestrained squeeing but I have 2 1/2 months of pent up David enthusiasm to get out of my system! LOL!)

  166. Elysian says:

    HI supergrandjudie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So good to see you and everyone else!!!

  167. cq#DA2014 says:

    Tami lyn, you have a point, David is a bit unrealistic when it comes to having fans only focus on his music, it doesn’t work that way for most, if not all, singers, entertainers, etc. I however, I think he could have a balance. Be happy to have somewhat of a private life and still give what his fans want. I’m in it for his music anything fun that doesn’t hurt him privately, is just a bonus, lol.

  168. ksf says:

    tami lyn – yeah it’s frustrating but we’ll have to wait and see what happens down the road. It’ll be interesting to see what he decides to do once he comes back because I think you’re right that he doesn’t really want superstardom.

  169. Miss Vicki @DA2014 says:

    Hey tami lyn……Did Jasmine really spill the beans about real chemistry between her and David??..What did I miss???? Haven’t watched Idol in several weeks…..Who is this Angie and what style of singer is she…..Is she visiting the David fan sites???? What’s up?????? Miss Vicki

  170. tami lyn says:

    omg ksf thanks for posting that! i did not see her in the solo round. great song! she reminded me of katy perry(one of my fav singers)

  171. Elysian says:

    I plan on going back and reading each and every post and comment that I have missed, if its possible to go back as far as Thanksgiving. It will probably take me forever, but it will be such a joy to catch up on the goings on in the archuniverse. Does anyone know if its possible to go back that far??

  172. jhen says:

    So the leaked tracklist is not the real tractlist. Still have a chance for Senseless to be included. Hope So. Can’t wait to see the official tracklist.

  173. tami lyn says:

    miss vicki~ omg yes! i point blank ask jasmine on twitter about david and she replied(in capital letters no less!) she tweeted~ THE CHEMISTRY WAS REAL! i saved that tweet of course but cannot access it. i think twitter is archiving tweets and only lets people go back so far to check old tweets which sucks cuz i have alot of interesting tweets/pics/etc that i cannot access!!! 🙁

  174. ksf says:

    Hi Elysian! 🙂 Welcome back!

    cq – You’re right. There are celebrities that have a wonderful balance. Beyonce, for example, is a huge star but she’s managed to keep her private life mostly private. We get a glimpse every now and again but we don’t know everything. Adele is another good example of that.

  175. Elysian says:

    Janel- My guess for the song the bam bam bam song is Touch My Hand.

  176. tami lyn says:

    welcome back elysian!!!! 🙂

  177. Miss Vicki @DSA#2014 says:

    Hey guys….gotta share something with you…..My hubby took me out for dinner for Valentines Day last night and gave me a Pandora bracelet…..one of the charms was a musical note and I asked him why he chose that charm. He said it was because I was always listening to my David music……Love him to pieces for that charm….Miss Vicki

  178. ksf says:

    Hi Miss Vicki! See 9:21 re: Idol.

  179. jhen says:

    Was it Malaysia or Singapore radio station which air play Don’t Run Away. Whoa! They are very fast.

  180. Elysian says:

    Thanks ksf!!!

  181. ksf says:

    Aww, Miss Vicki! That is so sweet. I bet its beautiful! 🙂

  182. Elysian says:

    Hi tami lyn, thanks, good to be back!!

    Miss Vicki- AWWWW, what a sweatheart!! He’s obviously a keeper!

  183. cq#DA2014 says:

    So glad you’re back Elysian.

  184. Elysian says:

    Oops, sweetheart, not sweatheart, LOL!

  185. Miss Vicki @DSA#2014 says:

    Welcome back Elysian……It might take you a long long time to read every thing since Thanksgiving….I have a hard time reading posts from everyday…HA HA HA…..Miss Vicki

  186. Elysian says:

    Thanks a bunch cq!!!

  187. tami lyn says:

    miss vicki~ oh that is sooo sweet!!! 🙂

  188. Elysian says:

    Hi Miss Vicki! Thanks! I will probably have to stay up late many a night to catch up, but it will be so worth it. I have a feeling a lot of amazing stuff happened while I was gone!! I can’t wait to find out!

  189. Bychance says:

    Elysian!!! I swear, I was just about to write a comment to say how much I missed your beautiful writing and to ask if you were ok!! I am not kidding. I am so glad to see you back!!

    I’ve decided for various reasons to go back to lurkdom, at least for now, and didn’t want to do that before asking about you…..so funny and unbelievable to me that you just popped up?!! …..I’m so happy to say hi to you before I go! I’ll look forward again to your comments! Get that pent up spazzing out!! Love it!

  190. tami lyn says:

    just saw another pic of lazaro and angie on FB! they must like each other!!

  191. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Miss Vicki- Wow, what a nice gift. Must be nice having someone surprise you. How thoughtful. I get, What would you like?? He means well, but not very imaginative. Mr. Vicki is a keeper!!

  192. Miss Vicki @DSA#2014 says:

    Hey guys….watched the video of Angie Miller on solo night on Idol….WOW…..just WOW….I’d say it’s time for a lady to win Idol this year and and this is the one to beat…..BTW……Sarahazel….Hope you are having an awesome time out West….Have a great trip to Cali…Doesn’t your daughter go to school out there??? Miss Vicki

  193. Miss Vicki @DSA#2014 says:

    Hi supergrandjudie….Yep…he’s a keeper….Mr. Vicki has been awesome about taking me to David concerts too….(even though he likes heavy metal rock)…..Gotta a keeper….Miss Vicki

  194. Elysian says:

    HI Bychance!!!!!!!!!!!! Great to see you, and how sweet of you to be thinking about me!! Now that I’m back, you simply cannot go back into lurkdom!!!! You’re one of my favorite people to talk to and I love your comments! If you go into lurkdom, it will be even longer before we can chat, and I won’t stand for it!! There, its decided then, no lurkdom for you!!! WOW, I got so assertive while I was away! LOL!

  195. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    ksf- Thanks for the video link of Angie. Yeah no, that’s not the girl I was talking about. She was in that group but the girl I saw was blonde and had a real strong voice. I’d have to hear Angie again. I didn’t care for the song. Next week, I’ll pay more attention.

  196. tami lyn says:

    i don’t think a girl has much chance of winning. i think most of the viewers are female and vote for their favorite cute guy. i was shocked when that chubby dark haired boy got eliminated on thursday! he sounds as good or better than adam lambert!

  197. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Miss Vicki- It’s great that Mr. Vicki goes to David’s concerts. Mr. SGJ is always ready, willing and able to go to David’s concerts with me. When David was going to be in Myrtle Beach, I put my finger up to the wind and said make reservations we are going to South Carolina to see David. He said okay and went to his computer. He’s a keeper too. 😀

  198. tami lyn says:

    i think david is smart to not chase fame cuz like lady gaga said`~it’s dark, lonely, and disturbing. i do believe it probably is alot of the time. but kinda sucks for us but ultimately i do want david to be happy.

  199. Elysian says:

    supergrandjudie- Your comment about how your husband doesn’t surprise you but instead usually asks you what you would like as a present made me chuckle because sometimes, when husbands are left to their own devices, they can go astray. For example, when my husband and I were dating, he was so excited about a gift that he had bought me over the internet that he was beaming. It turned out to be a smartmop!! Nice mop, but not what I was expecting given his level of enthusiasm. The next time, he bought me a leather mini skirt, and I am defintiely NOT the leather mini skirt type!! Like you said about your hubby, mine meant well but sheez!! He evidently wanted a leather clad, mop weilding girlfriend, and he decided to get me gifts so that I could fulfill that fantasy LOL!

    Nice talking to everyone. Did we find out from Janel what Bam-Bam-Bam was from?? Hello Janel, we give up. Tell us please. I said Drummer Boy. I’ll wait a little for an answer and then it’s goodnight for me.

  201. Shanny in Australia says:

    Bychance, why are you going back to Lurkdom!? It’s not because you felt you said something wrong the other day is it? I don’t recall you ever saying anything bad. 🙁

    Elysian, lol, welcome back. Love your squeeing. 🙂 I still haven’t heard the new song – I wanted to keep it as a surprise but now that I think there will be some new songs on the album i’m beginning to think I may as well enjoy and squee and spazz over this song while we wait.

    Cq, Tamilyn…lol…i used to think of Cq as a man too until one day she said something which made me she was a lady. 🙂 I’ve been mistaken for a man on the internet in the past too cq.

  202. Bychance says:

    Aww Elysian, you make it hard! I just need to take time for a few things and felt good about taking a break from comments………..and then you come along!!… dog gone it!..doubly hard! I will still be here spazzing and supporting our guy no matter what, and maybe I’ll pop in now and then. Just so glad you are still around! It’s funny how you can care about someone you’ve never even met………meaning you, not David lol! …although the same goes for him! Take care!

  203. ksf says:

    sgj – Both of the ladies in this video are really talented, but are you talking about the second one — Janelle Arthur?


  204. Elysian says:

    Hi Shanny!!!! Thanks, its like old home week!!! YEA!!!

    Bychance- Aww, Bychance, I feel the same way about you. I firmly believe that you can tell alot about a person’s charatcter based upon what they write in comments, which is why I don’t want you to go, but I understand if you need to take a little break, and I emphasize little! I will miss you and hurry back. I hope to be around when the mood strikes you to pop in! 🙂

  205. Shanny in Australia says:

    Miss Vicki, SGJ….love the sweet husband stories very much. 🙂

    Elysian….bwhahaha! Your hubby is sweet in a funny, quirky, kind of way. lolol He cares, that is the main thing right. 😉

    Tamilyn….do you think it’s possible for someone to be mistaken about supposed chemistry? Especially when they are.acting?

    Either way….we know that david is a pserson who tries to conjure up the emotion for a song.(and scene) and with Jasmine being a pretty girl, i’m sure there was.some chemistry. To be expected really. Funny thing is….did he also conjure up some chemistry for Eula? Probably did. Wonder if he felt he was two timing his girls? lolol
    I guess there is a difference however between conjuring up some chemistry for a pretty girl during an acting stint and actually seeing more deeper things in a person that would cause him to want to pursue something real. I think that part is the missing link. Jasmine’s a nice girl and all, just don’t think she’s david’s type.

  206. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Elysian- ROTF 😆 :lo: I got a Joan Crawford sweater once, you know what that is? A sweater with shoulder pads in it. Ugh terrible. Oh and a Christmas gift once was a Meat slicer, the kind you see in the deli. Some gifts were beautiful like a full length Silver fox fur coat and jewelry but that was after I started to tell him what I would like.

  207. Elysian says:

    Shanny- You’re right! Its not the gift, but the thought! I must admit, I made good use of the mop. The skirt on the other hand is still in the closet with the tags on. I kept it all these years because it makes me crack up everytime I see it! LOL!

  208. Bychance says:

    Shanny…no, I’m fine. It would be a long and not good explanation if I tried, lol. I’ll still be around, just not as much. I might find it harder to stay away than I thought!

  209. Elysian says:

    supergrandjudie! I totally know what a Joan Crawford sweater looks like! LOL! Wow, a meat slicer may just beat my smartmop! He definitely got better in the gift department after you started to give him hints! He takes instruction well! LOL!

  210. tami lyn says:

    hi shanny 🙂 that’s just it. we will never know cuz david won’t tell us. we wouldn’t know until they got married and we saw it on some website! lol!

  211. Elysian says:

    Well, I really hate to leave, but I am going to have dinner with the family. I had so much fun chatting with you all, and thanks for welcoming back so warmly!! It means a lot!! Like Arnold says, “I’ll be back” on a regular basis again to comment, when I am not catching up on the past few months of posts. Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!

  212. Shanny in Australia says:

    Bychance, well I will honestly miss you. You were a quiet comfort to me. But I fully understand. Seems to be the way it is I guess. Do pop in when you can and love and best wishes always. 🙂

    Tamilyn….well really, I guess I was saying I think we can’t know for sure if there was chemistry but I think we could make a pretty good guess – and my guess is…yes, there was chemistry but it was brought about by david willing it into existence expressly for the purposes of acting.

  213. tami lyn says:

    shanny~ u could be right but i tend to think that someone as sophisticated as jasmine would be able to tell if it was real or not especially since david is not an experienced actor, or is he? lol 😉 sometimes i think he is fooling all of us with his innocent act.

  214. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    ksf- Aw You’re a dear. That’s her. Janelle Arthur. A little country like but I like her voice veery much. Thank you for finding that for me.

    Elysian- Yes, he did get better. It only took 51 years. 😆

  215. Shanny in Australia says:

    Bychance, I just reread what I wrote. Didn’t mean to send you on a gult trip in any way! 😯 Sorry if it came across that way. Was.just trying to express myself as well as I can in a public manner. Seriously….take care and love and best wishes to you. Do what you gotta do. All is good. 🙂

    Elysian, enjoy your dindin. C u again soon. 🙂

  216. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    ByChance- I’ll miss you but respect your decision. Don’t stay away too long. I’m glad you are a fan of David. We love you. Take care.

  217. Bychance says:

    Shanny…oh, thank you, I feel the same. I wish I could explain , but it would not be a good idea here…. just need to step back for a bit. I shouldn’t have said anything………anyway, love and hugs to you, too!

    Good night all!

  218. Bychance says:

    And you, too, supergrandjudie! Man, why do I feel like crying?!

  219. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Elysian and I think I’m going to say Goodnight All, too. See you tomorrow, Shanny, ksf, tami lyn and everyone I missed. Hey Janel, where is Bam-Bam-Bam from???

  220. tami lyn says:

    goodnite SGJ 🙂 nice seeing u here tonite

  221. tami lyn says:

    bychance~ what’s wrong? did i say something to upset u? 🙁

  222. Shanny in Australia says:

    Tami Lyn…funny…i was thinking Jasmine was young and probably not experienced in the ways of love and romance. But …shrug…it doesn’t matter because I think there probably was chemistry. Sure, david was conjuring it up for acting (and yes, I think he is expert at tapping into his emotions) but it was still real enough there in the moment.
    But if it wasn’t for the acting gig, I doubt there would have been any chemistry cos she’s not his type, even though she’s pretty.
    I feel like what i’m trying to express is not coming through the written word very well….

  223. Miss Vicki @DSA#2014 says:

    Bychance….we will all miss you…come back soon….Miss Vicki

  224. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    Shanny ha how do you know what his type is? don’t think we have ever seen him with a girl.

  225. Bychance says:

    tamilyn….oh, I really didn’t mean to cause a cirfuffle…how’s that for a word! You, and all of you, are great. I didn’t realize there would be a response…..shouldn’t have said anything. But with people’s kind words, i unexpectedly got a little emotional. What really lovely people David’s fans are!

    Now, goodnight to you lovely people, for real!

  226. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    kind of think David and Eula are cuter together.

  227. tami lyn says:

    shanny~ i think i know what u mean. on the surface jasmine seems way too glamorous and sophisticated for david but there is part of me that thinks maybe it’s the other way around! lol 😉 cuz we will never know thanks to david’s obsession with secrets

  228. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Miss Vicki- I’m still here. Just caught your @DSA#2014. What does DSA stand for David Smokin Archuleta???

  229. ksf says:

    Goodbye Bychance. I have a feeling I know why you’re leaving. Wish you well. 🙂

    You’re welcome, sgj. Yeah, I think Janelle is also one to watch. She’s really great.

    Hi Shanny. Good to see you. 🙂

    Goodnight everyone. Take care.

  230. tami lyn says:

    thanks for saying that bychance 🙂 i would have felt awful if u had left because of something controversial/offensive i might have said!

  231. Shanny in Australia says:

    Bychance, lol…now you’ve brought tears to MY eyes! and i’m not even sure why. I think I feel your heart a little. I know your predicament in saying goodbye – you don’t want to just fall off the face of the planet without saying goodbye to people you care about but it kind of makes it complicated when you do say goodbye. lol Been there, wrestled with that dilemma myself before – a few times. lol
    Lets just say…till we meet again. 🙂

  232. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran! says:

    107.9 The End ‏@1079theend
    @janey79 It’s true! David’s one of the nicest guys we know in the music biz!! #TrueStory

  233. Miss Vicki @DSA#2014 says:

    Hey Shanny…..David is young too and not experienced in the ways of love, but Jasmine is just not “HIS TYPE”……….He needs more substance in a relationship……Miss Vicki

  234. ksf says:

    As far as David goes, I agree with Kim. I don’t think any of us really know what David’s type is since we haven’t actually seen him with anyone and we don’t actually know him. Lol. Having chemistry with someone and being attracted to them is very natural and often goes beyond race, religion, etc… And, sometimes opposite personalities do attract. Jasmine definitely wants to be a star while David seem to be content with a more relaxed sort of life, but that doesn’t mean that they did not have real chemistry outside of NA. Practically, it may not have made sense for David to pursue anything serious but that doesn’t negate any real feelings that were possible. Only time will tell what type of girl David falls for and it may be a shock to us all.

    Okay. Goodnight for real.

  235. Miss Vicki @DSA#2014 says:

    BTW….What is this about a tracklist for No Matter How Far???? What did I miss???? Miss Vicki

  236. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Okay, now I’m really going. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran you are kilig me with all those smokin pictures. The one from tv5 I’m keeping. Never saw that before. Have to go. Thanks for the player. 😆 😆

  237. Shanny in Australia says:

    Goodnight Ksf. 🙂

    Tamilyn, yes interesting observation. David IS sophisticated. Just not in the ‘obvious to the world’ way.

    Kim, they are two different types of personalities and jasmine is kind of all the things david has said he doesn’t like about the entertainment business. I’ve explained myself more fully before, I’m feeling lazy this time. lol Anyone remember what i’ve said before and want to explain? lol I’ll try to remember and answer more fully on another day, maybe i’m all tired out from my DINKing. 😆 😉

  238. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Miss Vicki I’m waiting for an answer. Please What does DSA#2014 stand for???

  239. Shanny in Australia says:

    Miss Vicki yes you hit the nail on the head very succinctly – substance.
    Anyway, I don’t have the energy for debates today sorry guys. lol Gosh, i’m bad company…. lol

  240. ksf says:

    Actually, I take that back. After last night I know exactly what David’s type is. 😉 LOL

  241. cq#DA2014 says:

    Tami lyn @10:19 that’s a funny quote from Lady GaGa….fame being: lonely, dark and disturbing…why would she continue to act/dress the way she does for the public if she didn’t want…isn’t that for attention and fame. I have said all along that David would be able to handle fame with class and dignity and would be able to balance his private life with his professional life. I’ll never give up on David’s music career being a big success.

  242. ksf says:

    Just kidding (kind of). None of us knows David’s “type.” Heck, we don’t know any of these people personally to judge whether they have substance or not.

  243. Shanny in Australia says:

    Cq, only thing I can think of, is that she puts up with the ‘lonely, dark and disturbing’ because at least it comes with popularity and money. Probably for her, the alternative is still ‘lonely, dark and disturbing’ just in a different way but minus the money and popularity. Sad really. I think it’s the same for many of today’s celebrities, particularly those prone to extremes like her. Sad again. 🙁

  244. tami lyn says:

    cq~ yeah it’s strange and ironic. that’s why her fragrance is black(to depict the emptiness). weird huh?

  245. tami lyn says:

    omg josh groban on jimmy kimmel!!! sex pills! LOL!

  246. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ haha! i was gonna DM on twitter and say~ tell me everything u know!!! lol

  247. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ksf, reminds me of this poem which I think is true.
    (hope it pastes ok….)

    Tell On Yourself…
    You tell on yourself by the friends you seek, 
    By the very manner in which you speak, 
    By the way you employ your leisure time, 
    By the use you make of dollar and dime.
    You tell what you are by the things you wear, 
    By the spirit in which you your burdens bear; 
    By the kind of things at which you laugh, 
    By the records you play on the phonograph.
    You tell what you are by the way you walk; 
    By the things of which you delight to talk,
    By the manner in which you bear defeat, 
    By so simple a thing as how you eat.
    By the books you choose from the well-filled shelf, 
    In these ways and more, you tell on yourself; 

    So there’s really no particle of sense

    In an effort to keep up false pretense. 
    Jamie Sidwell

  248. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ha, think maybe Lady gaga would be happier if she read the last two lines of that poem. Thankfully david learnt quickly the value of being yourself.

  249. Miss Vicki @DSA#2014 says:

    supergrandjudie….that was a typo…should have been DA#2014….anyway….I am wandering tonight….My first musical love from back in the 1970’s is Arlo Guthrie…..I should be at his Hampton Rhoads, VA, concert tonight but alas….I am not , so I am also watching old Arlo YouTube momens….Along with his funky folk rock Arlo sings Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love with You……I would LOVE to hear David sing this song……Miss Vicki

  250. cq#DA2014 says:

    Shanny, I agree with you she and other like her would still have those feelings without the fame, it just makes it harder to handle with the fame, I guess..

  251. Shanny in Australia says:

    Oh sgj, sorry , I didn’t say goodnight. Sleep well. 🙂

  252. Kimberly Ann fan of one smokin Honduran!! says:

    Shanny umm wouldn’t be the first time a guy picked the wrong girl for him.
    have no clue if he liked her or anyone for that reason.
    except thought him and Eula looked gorgeous together.
    hope he goes back for a second round with one of them.
    ha to get our tongues wagging again.

  253. Miss Vicki @DSA#2014 says:

    Tis the witching hour….Night all and happy David dreams….Miss Vicki

  254. ksf says:

    Shanny – Great poem and I believe there is truth to it. However, I also believe that you have to be careful not judge too presumptuously or too harshly, especially when you’re critiquing from afar. We only “know” so much. A kind of silly example is that we never thought David used the word *issed and it turns out he did and does. What does that say about him? Should we use that to judge?

    Okay. How many times have I said this? I really mean goodnight this time. 🙂

  255. Shanny in Australia says:

    Who knows what he’ll do Kim But i’ll be watching.

    Haha, now I sound like a stalker. Poor guy.

    Nite nite Miss Vicki.

    Cq, yep. 🙂

  256. tami lyn says:

    ksf~ i agree and like david said~ he does not want to be on a pedestal altho i know we like to put him on one cuz he does seem perfect but like u said~ we really have no idea what he does or how he feels.

  257. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ksf, I hear what you’re saying about judgment. I try not to be judgmental and i’m always open to being pulled up on it, so I can examine myself. Yes, I do think Jasmine does not have the substance david seems to appreciate but that doesn’t mean I think she is bad. I think she is just typical of many young girls – particularly those growing up amongst a fickle entertainment industry. Jasmine has a lot of wonderful things going for her still. She’s outgoing, confident, personable, talented, capable, seems to value family. I think those are wonderful, desirable qualities.

  258. nora says:

    sorry bychance that you feel you have to stay away for a while, I believe I know why you feel the way you do, but I would not let those things keep you away for too long, I have always enjoyed what you have to say. Please don’t let other opinions drive you away from here. Please take care, and hope to hear from you soon.

  259. Shanny in Australia says:

    I feel misjudged a lot of the time. Yes I have standards. Yes I think there are things which will lead a person to true happiness – and many of those things are conservative things. But that doesn’t mean I think people who think or do differently are bad or that they should live according to what I think is correct. I recognise that everyone has different backgrounds, different experiences that affect how they view the world. Plus I try to see the whole person, I don’t just look at one aspect of a person. Just sayin’….

  260. ksf says:

    Shanny – Point taken. And, David did say that his kind of perfect was “anything but typical.” Lol.

    Goodnight. 🙂

  261. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Elysian, Sammy-Jo’s mom did say she likes “Touch My Hand” but for you, Grannycrush and anyone else who guessed the “Bam-Bam-Bam” song is Los Pastores a Belen. “con la pan pan pan”. She sings “bam-bam-bam” instead of “pan pan pan”

  262. ksf says:

    Shanny – I posted that last comment before I saw your last post. I’m sorry that you’ve felt misjudged. As you said, I definitely have to check myself on that too and make sure that I’m not being presumptuous or critical.

  263. jeani/ut says:

    I can’t wait for the new album. I already have a CD with Senseless, Not a Very Good Liar, Notice Me, Love Don’t Hate, The Day After Tomorrow, Nothing Else Better to Do, She’s Not You, Power in Purity, Maybe I’m Amazed, Gotta Get Through this, Blackbird, Hey Soul Sister, You’re Eyes Don’t Lie, I’m Yours and Things are Going to Get Better.

  264. Shanny in Australia #DA2014 says:

    Ksf, ‘anything but typical’. lol. Yes true. 🙂
    And thank you for your kind response to me too. I appreciate it. 🙂

  265. 8008 says:

    Tami Lyn-I was reading your comments…I don’t think David and Jasmine had any real chemistry. It was probably just said to promote Nandito. I do think David probably has feelings for someone he knows, but not her.

  266. Shanny in Australia #DA2014 says:

    Jeani, lol…wanna sell me a copy of that cd? 😉

    8008 ohhh I always love insider info, wanna spill?…. 😆 😉
    But you make a point – there IS a lot of spin in the industry. ~shrug~

  267. Shanny in Australia #DA2014 says:

    That would be nice if David had feelings for someone. 🙂

  268. Mr. B says:

    Hello everyone!

    Just dropping by to ask if any of you know the cheapest place to get David albums? on eBay things are quite salty. (especially BEGIN.). D:

    Also, how come there’s no TOSOD Fan Edition to buy second-hand? Are they really limited or the buyers aren’t willing to sell?

  274. ksf says:

    Hmm…if that’s the case and he already has feelings for someone then maybe married life is much closer than we think. Could 2014 be the year? 😉

  275. Shanny in Australia says:

    A friends daughter….. lol

    VaBeach, you’re welcome. 🙂

    OoO – we can only vote once daily on that Ryan Seacrest poll right?

    Or 2015…a girl does need a little time to plan her dream wedding.

  277. ksf says:

    Shanny – Aww, all good things must come to an end I suppose. But, I’m the same way when my little one is away. It’s nice but I always miss him like crazy. My husband just shakes his head and says, “Its only a couple of days!” Lol. That’s a Mom for ya. 🙂

  278. Shanny in Australia says:

    Good morning Ksf. 🙂

  279. Shanny in Australia says:

    Ksf, yeah i’m with my kids literally 24/7 whereas hubby is used to being gone a lot during the week. Mum’s are wired that way though aren’t they. 😉

  280. ksf says:

    Shanny – Morning 🙂 Do you home school your kids?

  281. OoO says:

    Hi Shanny I really don’t know but I voted a few times about 600 votes today didn’t stop me. Is it only 2 days to go?

  282. Shanny in Australia says:

    OoO oh interesting. I hope they’re counting then, for your sake just as much as Davids.

    Ksf, yes we do. 🙂

    I actually like @DavidArchie ‘s take on RAINBOW. Very nice vocals. Even in his top register, he makes it sound so light, smooth & effortless

  293. ksf says:

    Shanny – That’s great 🙂 My sister home schools her kids too. I’ve considered it but if I decide to do it it’ll be down the road. Perhaps middle school. I’m a work-at-home mom so if I homeschooled too that might be a challenge, although my schedule is flexible.

  294. ksf says:

    Candy – OMG!! If that’s true that makes me sooo happy! Can you say how long this has been going on?

  295. cq#DA2014 says:

    Am I the only one that doesn’t want David to rush into marriage…nothing against him getting married, just him taking his time to date…or I guess that’s not what is done in his world. I just don’t see how he had time to date before he went on his mission.

  296. ksf says:

    cq – We don’t know what he does with his private time, especially depending on how long he’s known this person. It could be someone he’s known since before AI.
