There was the beautiful sound of a furtive owl several hours ago tweeting and crooning into the night air while most everyone was trying to sleep or already snoring. 😛 😛
Yes it was David Archuleta with his divine sound !!
David’s Nighttime tweet –
Why didn’t someone wake me up to listen? I could have stayed Up All Night. Serious. David gone soulful again. David at his soulful best!! worse! -or better! – INTO THE SILENCE OF THE NIGHT !!
Sigh .. PENGSAN!!
(Oops .. that’s a Malay word, meaning “to faint.. to collapse .. to lose consciousness”. Sigh !! In simple English it means “that something is sooo good, it actually nearly killed you! !! 😀
Below is the original by Bryan Adams. I’m of course totally biased, Please just give me David Archuleta crooning the complete song. (Perhaps he nodded off halfway last night 😛 )
How about tonight, David? Finish the song properly!! Or tomorrow night?? We can totally wait!! 😉 😉
David’s fun tweet –
In honor of … which mood are you? I’m probably feeling #8 right now haha
David continues with his creative tweets! NationalSunGlassesDay?? Really?? Is there such a thing??
Maybe there is … and I’ve been living under a rock.
Maybe there isn’t … and it’s just David having fun and pulling our leg.
Whatever it is, I’m going along with this fun flow and posting more David-sunglasses-pics. 😀
(These are not really sunglasses .. oh well .. cute pic!! 😀 )
But, seriously, I prefer David without sunglasses how ever cool they are. As a doting fan, I’d rather see the rays of his beautiful eyes shine out from his very own sockets. 😛 😛
HALLELUJAH!! – an expression of rejoicing
It is also one of the very best songs written in modern times by Leonard Cohen, a Canadian singer-songwriter
This song is not just loved by concert goers and the masses in recent times. It has become one of the favourite songs for contestants in music competitions. I have often wondered how David would sound singing this amazing song.
And Hallelujah, while I was asleep, he sang it!! What a wonderful surprise! Bravo, David!!
Is the song Hallelujah a religious song? If you googled Cohen with reference to this song, you would be told that it is NOT. There are tones of Sex. In fact it is about a sexual experience. He was drawing parallels between a religious experience and a sexual one. All the more I’m delighted that David sang it. Hallelujah!
This is a video of Leonard Cohen the genius singing his creation Live in London.
I think David had not sung the original lyrics posted above, except for the first verse (for obvious reasons??) Even 1 line from the 1st verse was changed. Well, it is David being David afterall. 😉 😉
Anyway, I love the way he has added his own musical style and made the song his own. And it was touching the way the audience has accompanied him in the choruses. I’m certain that, if I had been there, I would have sung along in tears. ♥
It is about finding the energy from the inner self.
To have emotions connecting to the soul
To heal and transform on a human level
Then to reach out to a Higher Spirit that is Godly
Because of that, this kind of singing will never go out of style
as long as human beings remain human beings …
Sounds like how we see David Archuleta.
Ever since the Idol days, I think David lost his own inner self many times. Mainly to please different groups of fans and officialdom. Also to search and hope to discover the different parts of himself.
I doubt I would be wrong to say that much of David’s musical interest lies in the expression of soulful music. Not just singing from the heart – as he had always done – but in Soul Music. Like the one above.
Oops .. forgot to mention his favourite Christmas songs! 😀 And they’re coming!! He is making another Christmas Album!! ♥
And of course there was the old folksong of Loch Lomond, which was divinely sung and has reached 2 million views on Facebook. ♥
Oh heck .. what am I talking about? .. DAVID LOVES HIS MUSIC – he would insist that he likes all kinds !! 😀 😀

No Words necessary. David was looking so gorgeous at Sandy.
I’ll let the amazzzzing pics speak for themselves.
“I’ve decided that @davidarchie’s voice is melted truffle butter.” says Melinda
And Loch Lomond with Peter Hollens was hauntingly poignant, resonant of how a traditional folksong should be sung. Melted butter at its best, people!!
(screencaps taken from FOD)
So. While this gorgeous hunk of truffle butter is tenderly melting away my heart and soul, I shall post something eternally sweet – our Fathers! It is Father’s Day afterall 😀
My own Father was a wholeheartedly sincere person, sometimes misread as sombreness. He had an acute sense of hunmour which was well hidden at the best of times.
I found this video which gave me many giggles. No, my Father would never do any of these things compiled in this video. Harmless as I think they are, it’s worthwhile sharing some fun on this all-important day which honours our Fathers. ♥
Haha! HAPPY FATHER’S DAY ANYWAY 😀
I think it’s safe to say our co-stars were super friendly on the set of a music video I shot recently with . Can’t wait for y’all to see the video premiere this Friday!!
Just in time for the weekend, here’s a new music video from & I singing a well-known traditional Scottish song called “Loch Lomond’. The set was absolutely breathtaking, and we thought it was a perfect fit for the song. I hope y’all enjoy it!
