Something ‘Bout David

David Archuleta is LOVE. (Am I repeating myself?) David’s new single, “Something ‘Bout Love” has WIN plastered allllll over it. SUMMER HIT SUMMER HIT SUMMER HIT!!! That pic above shows EXACTLY how “Something ‘Bout Love” makes me feeeeeeeeeel!!!!

I’ve long known that a certain predominating pop production style known for its canned, clubby syncopation and inescapable electro-bot autotune overlay was a preferred flavor on today’s pop music menu. While I’ve always been one for vanilla with chocolate fudge sauce and peanuts, pop charts will bear out that the more popular flavor among David’s peers is of this more production-heavy variety.


*calms down*

I remember David saying once that autotune is not for him. Ok. Lord KNOWS I couldn’t agree more. But this is not OVER-autotuned. Just enough to tip his hat to the genre (as in show ’em how it’s done, David, yessss!) while still infusing it with that @(&$(^@(Q(@&#(&@&#( ARCHU_MAGIC. (I MUST confess, I actually really, really LIKE the way it’s used in this song)

Bravo, David! BRAVOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

For those who don’t know (there really can’t be anybody reading this who doesn’t know, but…kikiki) David’s single, “Something ‘Bout Love” will be available for purchase exclusively at David’s official  website ( on July 13, and available on iTunes July 20! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!!  ANNNNND, you can listen to it right now on David’s site… IN A PERPETUAL LOOOOOP lolol…. I AM GIDDDDYYYYYYY!

And while I’m CELEBRATING, do NOT MISS David on July 4 on PBS “A Capitol Fourth” where he’ll join other BIIIG STARRRS on the West Lawn of the Capitol. David will sing the National Anthem and Stand By Me! I HOPE HE JAMS WITH GLADYS KNIGHT!!! YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!

*calms down*

OH, and while I’m at it…

    beebee, i am so haaaaapy you like it! I was wondering what our queen of soul thought of SBL! I think it is the cat’s meow, really creative.

    And his voice in that song! God-given-talent, that man has it!

    I am a down to earth person, but

    David’s new song makes me HAPPY! Whee!!! And the news keeps on coming, and there’s just not time to settle down. Especially given the fact that


    BeeBee, thank you for always finding a way to write the way my heart feels.

    {{{{{emmegirl}}}}} Heyyyyyyy!! Oh yes Ma’am, I DO LIIIIIKE IT! And IT IS a pop song he SHOULD be releasing as a Summer single bcz it really is a PERFECT summer boppin’ song… to BLAST when you’re summer cruisin’ with the WINDOWS DOWN your hair a flappin’ in the breeeeeeze! Yesssss! I can almost feel sunburn on my nose and shoulders just listening to it! :) Hey, I can’t help it if David can do no wrong. He just can’t do it apparently. :)

    And I was telling TOfan that I just know in my bones that his cd will have something for everyone, so I get RILLY SHAKEY thinkin’ ’bout THE CD. =:O

    Kathy!!!! I KNOWWWWW… sumpn starts happenin’ to you when you leave that song on continual loop. In a GOOD way. I really dig it. :) I’m so happy for David. SO HAPPY SO HAPPY SO HAPPPPPPPYYYYYYYYY!!!! *slaps self*

    beebee, think your right, there will be something for everyone! Someone said in an interview today he said SBL wasn’t indicative of the other songs on the album.

    I’ve been thinking about how it appeared the first single (first said to be out in May) was a song Eman & Hodges were involved with. Then he went to NY, and wrote with SBL w/Sluggo and Sam. Seems then all of a sudden, the single would be out in July.

    Just a guess on my part, but thinking they knew this kick-butt song would be the PERFECT summer single. So I am hoping, wondering, hoping that they possibly could release the other single about the time the album comes out in Sept or Oct!!! (Wishful thinking helps satiate my seemingly insatiable appetite for his music!)

    Loveee this post! You really do capture the exuberance of being a fan of the ‘mazing David. Great graphic, too.

    And I can totally visualize you practicing for that there jump…Don’t sprain your back, k?

    beebee, you are just so much fun!!!

    We must all HOLD ON TIGHT and HANG IN for the ride of our lives!!!

  12. 15 beebee July 1, 2010 at 7:14 pm

    {{{{{{{{{{biancaaaaaaaaaa}}}}}}}}} I think David makes us all a lil bonkers, don’t you? (in a GOOD way :p) (which of course means I will NOT be practicing that jump….kikiki) I just have the best feeling about this song, and it sure seems like I am NOT alone there. :)

    SWEET!! HIYA!! Love that line… LOVE. IT. :) SBL is so much fun!

    emmegirl, I hope they do drop at least one more single before Fall CD launch. Several would suit me jez fine (but I wouldn’t wanna water down the impact of one song with too many so… wutevz works best, right? right!)

    I am way too over excited. LOL

    Hi everybody! Beebee, you are so very talented. I love your planethunkerdown! So perfectly captures the way I feel about David James Archuleta. He looks so mature in the pic. Beautifully, gorgeously mature. I too think we need to fasten our seatbelts for the next exciting chapter of our adventure with DA. Keep up your great work!

      Hi annmargaret! Aw, thanks, and welcome to my little rubber room in outer space :). Isn’t that red britches photo UNBELIEVABLE? Yes, so mature yet so perfectly young, too. And ALARMINGLY GORGEOUSLY HANDSOME. Just SO PERFECT.

      David responded to a tweet about the red pants and we couldn’t decide what his tweet really meant. I decided (haha) he was implying that he was sorry a fan pic of him in that outfit “got out” because he didn’t want us to have any “hints” about the photo shoot — wanted all images from that to be a surprise when the cd comes out. (Gee, or maybe it’s for the single release. :) Perfectly SUMMERY image.) I really hope that’s the case because, man, there is only a very slim window of time in one’s LIFE—if EVER— when one can REALLLLLLLLY pull off wearing RED BRITCHES. And boyhowdy, did he evah get away with it! :)

      I’m all buckled up and ready!

    Hey there bee-bee I need a graphic!!!

    My family & friends got me good last week on vacation – we were at dinner and my friend said something about David and then started talking abt something else. Then hubby said to me “what did she say after David Archuleta?” I didn’t know LOL then he told me “Do you know that when someone says David Archuleta it is like the flashy thingy from Men in Black? You have a total brain wipe!” Then they all started laughing. It was really funny and sadly very true!!

    care to work your magic on that one??? :)

    • 21 beebee July 6, 2010 at 8:04 am

      Oh that is so FUNNNY! BUT TRUUUUUUE!!! I’m happy to learn your friends and family can tease you about it bcz I’m thinkin’ that means you either (1) don’t have to hide Yo ODD any longer or (2) MORE LIKELY… you couldn’t hide it if yo LIFE depended on it…kikiki

      Hm, the Archu_Neuralizer… *ponders* … That COULD qualify as a research assignment for JODD. LOL
