Crushing on David Archuleta!


As much as I loved and rooted for the two Davids in last season's American Idol, I've always had a soft spot for little David or David Archuleta. When I first saw him auditioning for AI, I was totally mesmerized by his vocal prowess and knew he would go far in the competition. I was amazed that a young boy possessed such immense talent, sufficient to wow me each time he belts out a tune. And the finesse of real emotions he portrays when expressing any song, never fails to bring me into the meaning of the song. Add to that the clarity of his sweet voice and the way he tenderly caresses each word, David A. is definitely a heartthrob in the making!

So several weeks back, when a little birdy by the name of Debbie (who by the way just launched her new online craft store called Crafty Heart) told me that David A. had his first single out, I immediately hopped over to You Tube to check it out and all I can say is that I love the new "Crush" single by David A.!

Suitable for his age and genre, David's Crush single brings out some of the best aspects of his wonderful voice, immediately taking me back to when I had my first crush as a teenager.
The sheer intensity and uncertainty of wondering if he liked me back. The beating of my heart ever so furiously whenever our eyes locked or whenever he looked my way. Every single gesture was momentously exaggerated; keeping me wondering, wanting something, which I could not quite place my finger on. Ahhhhh the beauty and reckless freedom of young innocent love, the magic of it all is coming back to me now, thanks to lil' David! Happy listening and enjoy the video too. :)




PS. Thank you Metz for the heads up on the code! :)

I am not a big fan of Archuleta, but I kinda enjoy this song too. As you said, it's suitable for his age. This song beats David Cook's first single in terms of downloaded quantity in the first week of its release too!

Nessa October 7, 2008 at 11:49 PM

Shinade October 9, 2008 at 4:09 AM

Hi Marzie,
I am so sorry that I missed you yesterday but I guess I was sicker than I thought.

If you got my twitter update then you know I have pneumonia.

I tried to lie down for a while but felt so guilty.

I just had to drop over and say hi.

And believe it or not I live in America and don't watch American Idol.

But, don't tell anyone okay?

So my vote goes with your vote!!
*hug*

THANKS so much for your consistent advertising! I love seeing new talent and finding new musicians, albeit I do not watch the reality shows, I am usually surfing to find new stuff.

What a great tribute to a great voice you have posted!

Mariuca October 11, 2008 at 12:25 AM

Debbie, the GF came to watch him perform masa AI dulu, his neighbour it seems, but Archie was shy shy like dat when they asked him abt her, so cute!

Oh enuff of bad boys for me, gimme a nerd any day he he, janji pakai glasses la la la! ;)

But it says the video is not available any longer.

Oh and you wrote so tenderly about it.

I am so sorry I missed it.

I hope you are having a good week end break!

phatelara October 11, 2008 at 1:41 PM

Thanks and Big Hugs:-)

Empty Streets October 14, 2008 at 11:24 PM

Hi Marzie,

heheh i couldnt stop giggling when i saw your comment on David A's smile and called him My David hahahahah you are so crushing on him :) hehehe so cute la :)

Shinade October 15, 2008 at 2:50 AM

Hi Marzie,
thanks for the email. I saw it but I am only up for a little while today.

maybe just a few more drops and then back to rest again.

Oh Walter is headed home to help me. His manager got him a run headed this way.

So he will be here in a few days and take his vacation.

with him home maybe I can finally and completely get rid of this yucky thing.

And get my house clean again. I simply can't stand a dirty house and mine is a disgrace right now.

Off for a few more then back to the t.v.

Oh boy I sure do wish we could find someone that could make a list of us Red Hots that was compatible with FF3:-)

Mariuca October 15, 2008 at 4:17 AM

Hi Jackie! I too am in my 30s boo hoo! He he...anyway, hope u're feeling better today. I've responded to ur PW question at ur blog, but yes...no worries abt advertising on other ppl's PW, u just need an account of ur own and you're good to go! :)

Mariuca October 15, 2008 at 4:17 AM

Mariuca October 15, 2008 at 4:30 AM

Hi Bono! Thanks for dropping ur EC here today, ni baru je EC down again! I was halfway through dropping for Mariuca when it happened! Dunno if it will be okay before I zzzz ni! :(

Mariuca October 15, 2008 at 4:31 AM

Ha ha Metz! You are the cute one for using la now lol!! :)

Of coz, who can resist David A's charm and smile? Such an adorable boy he is! ;)

Mariuca October 15, 2008 at 4:34 AM

Hi Jackie! Poor thing, you're still not 100% okay! But it's good that Walt is coming home so he can look after you and nurse u back to health! :)

I stopped dropping my EC today, since it seems to be having yet another problem, I can't open my EC dashboard at all, so am calling it quits for the night! :)

Hey what happened to the EC toolbar? U're not using it? I drop my EC from my Inbox nowadays, easier to keep track of those who drop on me. And of coz I gotta drop on my fave blogs, yours included dear! :):):)

Mizé October 15, 2008 at 11:46 AM

Hi.
The music is nice. The singer is a bit young for me, lol.
Thanks for returning my drops.
Cheers.
