David Archuleta ~ Silence, Now Begin.

Posted by SandyBeaches on Thursday, July 5, 2012

Oh the tranquility of silence, how wonderful and generous a time that allows us to think, to discover and rediscover what we have deep within our minds and hearts. I awoke from a dream one night with one of David’s songs from his new album going on and on in my head. I had to reach for it and listen to it. So in this night it felt as if he was patiently waiting there for it to be discovered, with a peaceful smile on his face and the question, “What took you so long?” I felt elated because the words in the song give us the story that speaks to us about David and his journey. We are familiar with much of life being symbolic to David like the mere mention to us in a tweet of the formation of beautiful clouds in the blue sky one day. Watching him talk to a squirrel in a park is his way of giving us a gentle nudge to slow down and look at what is real and natural. He was reminding us then to notice the simple things. What took us so long? Only the greats can reach out to people and touch them through their art and in his near silence, he is fast becoming one of the greats.


Without hesitation I hear David’s own thoughts throughout the song. He is strongly passionate about everything in nature that is part of the land and he takes himself away to it whenever he can. I remember the day when he drove off into the mountains and sent the following picture back to us. The words of the song go wonderfully well with his picture. David doesn’t speak to one person but to everyone and it would not be odd for him to ask us if this might be a place where we would love to go.

I walked across an empty land

I knew the pathway like the back of my hand

I felt the earth beneath my feet

I came across a fallen tree

I felt the branches of it looking at me

Is this the place we used to love?

Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?

I’m getting old and I need something to rely on

So tell me when you’re gonna let me in

I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin.

Although this is not a Beatles song, I hear Paul McCartney which makes it so amazing to now hear it in David’s voice. He complements the words, the music and the English flare and I find that extraordinarily exciting. The lyrics seem to reflect upon David’s own beliefs. So now as the words of the song so obviously portray, perhaps where he has gone has become where he has longed to begin. It is possible that this is somewhere and something that he can rely on to be with him and guide him for the rest of his life. We require some environmental serenity in order to achieve spiritual sensitivity.

    SB,

    Thank you for this lovely piece on Somewhere Only We Know and the thoughts it inspired in you. Love the song which I had never heard before. Love him singing it better than the original. Did I even need to say that? :)
    I also hear the influence of Paul McCartney too as have several others who have commented about it. Oh yeah. That Beatles Anthology we gave him at the book signing during MOtab from everyone at The Voice is starting to pay off now. LOL! Well…anything’s possible.

    Another exclusive preview from BEGIN. today from David! What will it be?(ks) 1 hour ago

    He is killing me softly with his song and he’s not even here! oh dear oh dear. What will it be indeed? I think Angels?

  2. SandyBeaches said

    Angelica, you never know, perhaps the Beatles Anthology has a connection! If he would only play the fife I gave him that night!!

    My guess is ‘Angel’…

    SandyBeaches,

    Your articles are always so interesting to read!

    “Only the greats can reach out to people and touch them through their art and in his near silence, he is fast becoming one of the greats.”

    I totally agree! With a little promo, BEGIN is going to point David in the right direction on the next chapter of his life.

    I really like the snippet of David’s cover of the Keane song “Somewhere Only We Know”. The more I hear it, the more I hear The Beatles influence! Wish he’d just cover the entire Beatles catalogue already! LOL

    Another snippet? Can we take it?
    I’m guessing “Angels” or “BOTW”!

  4. SandyBeaches said

    Bebe, wow the thought of David and the Beatles music is a great thought!

    I love them both!

    SB

  5. bluebar said

    Already know I love BEGIN. even before it is released!!

    And, from now on, David has so many songs, great songs, award-winning songs that he can include in albums and shows as covers… and especially for when he has his own love story to tell.

    If trying to make a list of all our favorites:
    “Where do I begin…. ?”

    SB, where do I BEGIN.? I’m always curious to see how you are going to connect your thoughts. You never disappoint. David seems to be in the beginning of something epic, everyone is talking about it. Love the quotes, the connections to past events. Didn’t see them then but they sure seem to fit now. Somewhere Only is a song I didn’t recognize but the melody sounds familiar. David of course has now in 20 seconds taken posession of it.

    True Colors. WOW, just wow. BEGIN.

    Thank you guys for yesterdays comments. Was away on family picnic with music, food and lots of laughter. (missing David and you all :)

  8. eeeeeek! I love what David has done with True Colors!
    It wasn’t what I expected to hear..it’s better!! Can’t wait to get this collection of songs in my hannnnnnnds !

    SB,
    I love your thoughts you’ve shared this morning.All of them, but particularly this one:
    “…….. perhaps where he has gone has become where he has longed to begin. It is possible that this is somewhere and something that he can rely on to be with him and guide him for the rest of his life.”

  9. djafan said

    Sky, thanks for quoting this.

    SB, this is beautiful.

    “…….. perhaps where he has gone has become where he has longed to begin. It is possible that this is somewhere and something that he can rely on to be with him and guide him for the rest of his life.”

  10. MT said

    SB,
    Thanks you for such a wonderfuly thought provoking post. Yes, I can definitely relate this to David.

    Sky & Dja, “…….. perhaps where he has gone has become where he has longed to begin. It is possible that this is somewhere and something that he can rely on to be with him and guide him for the rest of his life.” < That's also my favorite part.

    For in the silence, contemplation begins and inspriation is born.

  11. SandyBeaches said

    Sky and Djafan,,,you two sure have the same likes!

    Sometimes I write something and read it later only to wonder where the thought came from.

    I wonder if it will be something like 2 snippets a week? Also, his new original song will have to hve an awesome entrance! Seriously, ‘Angel’ is another song that has me very excited to hear.

    SB

  12. goodkarmaseeker said

    Thanks SB for the thoughtful, peace-filled post. Your observations, along with the pictures, are just what I needed today on a busy, somewhat hectic day.

    And the new song snippet is just so wonderful. What a take on that song!!!

  13. Please excuse the mistakes that my iphone really did make, oh and my lack of glasses often contributes!

    But on a good note, maybe we can do an article on quotes sometime.

  14. SandyBeaches said

    Bluebar, I don’t know of any other singer who would have me loving their cover songs!

    There are some great BEGIN promo videos and the first is the one by JR!

  16. SandyBeaches said

    Thank you Pocoelsy for this one…

  17. MT said

    I’m still thinking about the BEGIN. CD. No surprise there, right?

    Don’t Give Up, is a duet. Well, I was remembering a tweet Kari sent a while back that said there would be a surprise on the CD. Could she have meant the duet partner? And I know it’s a stretch of the imagination, but I wonder if there is any way Joy Williams might have done it with him? I’m anxious to hear that song now. lol My curiosity is running away with me.

    See what David does to me? haha Lil’ Stinker.

    Oh, and I LOVE the snippet of true colors. I had two windows open just now, one with Lauper’s rendition and one with the snippet of David’s version playing the same parts. I really do like David’s version more. Guess I shouldn’t be surprised by now. :)

  18. annmargaret said

    I told my friend today this second snippet of David’s, True Colors is so beautiful, so gorgeous, so David. This song exemplifies to me David’s true inner being. I couldn’t put my finger on what was just so irresistible about David when I first saw him on AI. (well, aside from his darling face and stunning voice.) it was undefinable. Just pure love and acceptance on his part. Always seeing the good in others. Taking the high road. It is so obvious now. I’m so grateful that I was “chosen” to get David. I feel a great kinship with all of you. Thank you, David. Thank you fellow fans.

  19. jackryan4da said

    2nd snippet – True Colors :)

  20. pocoelsy said

    SB, thanks for the nice write up about “somewhere only we know” – silence and David, “he is fast becoming one of the greats” love that and it’s not just because of his voice it’s his whole being!!!

    #18 annmargaret , you said what I wanted to say but can’t put in words, yeah I always thought that how lucky we are to “get” David …as if we are “chosen” .. so it’s not just me!!!

    Here’s my take on True Colors mgr.

  21. annmargaret said

    Pocoelsey thank you for your comment. Although I am surrounded by non David fans (family) I have no problem standing my ground when it comes to David. They grudgingly tolerate my ODD. Once when David was on a morning talk show, my husband watched the segment with me. David was of course, his usual charming self. When it was over my husband said “Well, he does have a winning personality.” Hope springs eternal!

  22. annmargaret said

    One more thing Pocoelsy! Your True Colors mgr is very nice!

  23. pocoelsy said

    Annmargaret, must be a bit lonely when you live among non fans but whatever it is David make it so easy for us to stand up for him and stand our ground too, he such a good guy almost flawless !!! my family is a big fan of David my 2 daughts look up to him (thank goodness) but hubby is just um…so..so I think it’s just the “ego” thing haha or David’s aura just intimidate or like a threat to them… guys, one thing though my hubby once admited after David’s concert that David is uber talented and charming and handsome haha, that’s the undenieable truth!!!

    Thank you for watching my vid and glad you like it :)

    JR & Pocoelsy…Thank you for the MGR videos abd ‘yes’ please keep it up! They make the snippets so much more.

    Abrra, Thank you for adding ‘David Archuleta and the squirrel’ to the post because you can’t watch the video and not smile even on a dull day and it is so nice to see him as usual!

    Annmargaret…it takes time with family, but they do get there!

    What will this day bring?

  26. kaycee said

    SB, beautiful, thought-provoking article:

    “He was reminding us then to notice the simple things. What took us so long?”

    So true…and so valuable and rare to find that ability in today’s rushed and crazy world. And particularly for someone in the limelight who has to juggle so many balls and fill so many expectations! I think that is one of the main things that draws people to him…that he is able to really live in the moment….to leave everything behind and throw himself fully into a song, into the glimpse of a sunrise, into a simple meal, into a chance encounter with a squirrel…into a brief moment with a fan. I think that because of this ability he is able to really connect with his fans, even if he only has 2 to 3 seconds to shake their hand or give them a simple smile, he is totally present in that moment…and that is a powerful thing. I think that is possibly why it is difficult for him to have people telling him what to do, or how to be…the magic with David is in his ability to “just be” …that’s when the real magic happens.

    Annmargaret, “I’m so grateful that I was “chosen” to get David.” I feel just the same.

  27. T.G.I.F.everyone :)))
    Love the snippets JR and Pocoelsy. Wondering what delicious appetizer we will get to sample next?

    Abrra,I love that video of David and “Almond.” Classic David. ..” oh hi squirrel!” hahaha he is priceless♥

    here’s my little thought for the day…….

    *Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease
    to be amused!”

    True Colours is the song I most want to hear from the new album. So so so happy that they released a snippet of it. And it is AWESOME!!!

  29. SandyBeaches said

    Sky, so that is why I laugh so much out loud but about myself.

    My husband is alway amused and wondering why I am laughing. That is an interesting quote! Oh well as long as we are laughing even at ourselves!

    SB

  30. SandyBeaches said

    Fenfan, I am very excited to hear ‘Angel’.

    I am wondering if the photo shoot David had with Matt Clayton will be used for the release of ‘Broken’? It is a new song and may have a grand release. The pose just as we have seen in Kari’s picture, just might match it.

    SB

  31. pocoelsy said

    Abrra, skydancer1x and everyone, thank you for always encouraging me and take the time to watch the vid, glad you like it too.

    Abrra, David has a tender soul, and Mr. Almond (I assume almond is a boy :) ) knew it :) thank for that precious vid.

    Fenfan True colors is the cover song that I want to hear David’s take the most too because I never like the original or any other covers haha I like the lyrics though haha, David make the song sounds greattttt

    My eldest daughter is back home for the weekend to celebrate her birthday so will be a bit busy …last year she (we) went to David’s concert as her birthday present…how time flies… she’s still a big fan !! always hear she play David’s songs all the time :) <3

    Have a nice day or night everyone, oh happy 100th day :)

    100 days?! Has it really been 100 days? Wow, I might just make it after all!! What is it…about 7 times that?…and then we’re almost there! I wonder how quickly it’s passing for David. He seems to really throw himself into whatever he’s doing and make the most of each experience.

    Djafan (32), I love that David has a musical companion. Loving the snippets too! I like the 2 a week idea…keeps the excitement building!

  35. fenfan said

    I can’t stop listening to that snippet of True Colours. I hope they release a snippet Broken soon. I want that to be as wonderful as all the other great songs in the album.
    Besides Broken, the song I am most curious about is Don’t Give Up. Who is the other voice? Is there going to be another voice or have they rearranged it so it’s all David. But I really can’t see it working out as a solo.
    The song I am most nervous about is Bridge Over Troubled Water. Art Garfunkel’s version is the only one I Iike. No one sings it like him. I don’t want to have to skip this song every time I listen to the album, just like I skip that duet on his Christmas CD because I cannot abide the female voice there.

    Masterclass Lady’s new column is about one of my all time favorite songs by David, “When You Say You Love Me”.

    David Archuleta Retrospective Series Part Five: When You Say You Love Me By Pamela Pike and Rosanne Simunovic

    Pamela Pike’s Recollections

    The American Idol Tour in the summer of 2008 visited 49 cities, performed 53 concerts and sold 482,870 tickets.

    The screaming started with the first announcement of his name and continued throughout his four song set. Poised and polished he dominated the stage with his power ballad, “When You Say You Love Me.”

    Words by Robin Scoffield and Music by Mark Hammond it has been one of my favorite love songs for quite a while.

    David’s assured confidence on stage was incredible to watch, from Glendale, Arizona to Tulsa, Oklahoma. He is the consummate professional and gives us – something from his heart – his music soul!

    When David Archuleta sings not only does he bring intensity into his songs but motion and poetry as well. I feel I am flying with him in song as he takes you to a place only he knows and when finished gently brings you back. David performing on stage is poetry in motion.

    He provided a romantic listening experience with waves of enchantment that held his audience captive. The way his angelic voice awakens your soul is phenomenal. The passionate lyrics leave you breathless and the way David captures all the emotions sweeps you in a world of musical ecstasy.

    The exquisite timeless beauty of his voice can stun you into silence. How can we possibly put into words the way in which he makes us feel when he sings? There is something about his voice that opens our hearts and transports us to another place.

    David’s effortless vocal talent captures the mood for love in perfect style with feeling, and incredible passion. He cast a spell on his audiences with his beautiful voice and his graciousness.
    His performance on July 17, 2008 in Salt Lake City, Utah will be the most memorable performance for all time. Screaming emotions poured out like a stream from his hometown crowd in overwhelming love and admiration.

    Watching David wipe the tears from his eyes before he could finish his song was such a wonderful beautiful moment for David and his fans. I still cry every time I watch it.

    Then, so quickly it was over! You stood there looking at the person next to you in awe and asked what just happened. Did we just experience the most amazing performance ever? Yes we did!
    David carefully caressed and swept us away on an Angel’s flight and brought us gently back in his pocket. Singing is telling a story, and David’s story is all about Love.

    Rosanne Simunovic’s Recollections

    When I first heard David’s performance of “When You Say You Love Me”, my first impression was this: “If ever there was a perfect vehicle for this song, it is through David’s passionate and heartfelt vocal delivery”.

    For, with David, this was more than just a beautiful song. It was a personal and loving message to his fans, his family members, friends and, of course, to the Lord above for giving him a musical gift that would continue to move and inspire listeners of all ages.

    Although originally recorded by the talented Josh Groban, David’s version is more personal, more meaningful and, certainly very genuine and transparently expressive. We gain a glimpse into David’s loving soul – the depth and beauty of its essence.

    I was fortunate to hear a live performance of this song at the Toronto stop during the American Idol Season Seven Tour. I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I was waiting all night to hear this beautiful song live and in color. Would it be as good? Would I be as moved after hearing it endless number of times via YouTube?

    The answer: You betcha! It was all that and more. To see his face and hear the words and melody pour from his mouth was an experience I will never, ever forget. He had the audience in the palm of his hand – but in a way that was meaningful and authentic.

    He was delivering a message in the best way he knew how – through his expressive vocal ability and unassuming yet powerful charisma.

    I devoted three separate blog topics about his Toronto performance. Here are some of my thoughts after this live experience:

    “When You Say You Love Me” and “Angels” signified the undying affection he has for his family –first and foremost – followed by his friends and fans. And, we cannot forget his phenomenal musical influences – his parents, Jeff and Lupe, as well as his voice coach Dean and music arranger, Richard.

    All four songs were absolutely phenomenal. His heart is truly centered and in the right place when he performs. Just listening to his voice is a powerful testament to what stellar work ethics and sublime talent can achieve.

    One vocal cord and, yet, the clarity and purity of his voice could be heard above and beyond the screaming. The articulation of his diction was crystal clear and well-defined and, yet, so expressive and heartfelt.”

    I then added:

    “And when he completed his truly inspiring performance of “When You Say You Love Me”, my two daughters wiped tears from their eyes, as did I! That was the best thank you I have ever received! How about you? Does it get more endearing than this? Un.Be.Lie.Va.Ble!

    What a gift this young man has – what a prodigious and phenomenal talent. I will support this young man to the end of my days. Talent like this is very rare in one’s lifetime and should be endlessly celebrated and championed.”

    My words held meaning then and are more significant and steadfast to this day. His talent is just too special to ignore and, with time, will be embraced at an international level.

    Pocoelsy and JR,
    Loving your videos from the snippets!
    Hoping for more snippets between now and August 7th!

    I think you’re right Kaycee. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone else do this quite the way David does. I try to practice his ‘live in the moment’ attitude. When it works, it feels really good.

    Sky#27,
    I love your thought for the day: “Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused!”

    SB#37,
    I’m waiting for “Angel” too!

    Marlie#38,
    Was looking for that video! Thanks! BOTW is at 00:35.

  40. Blueberry Ice said

    SB; Always enjoy your thoughtful reflections. David never fails to take us somewhere worth going to, whether it’s through his music, observations, or feelings. Sure miss his random tweets.

    Kaycee; #26 … “he is able to really live in the moment….to leave everything behind …” It amazes me that not only he is able to do that but he never fails in keeping a positive attitude and ever present smile despite how he may be feeling inside or how crazy his schedule is or dealing with whatever personal challenges. I marvel at how he can hold it together through it all … a testament to his inner strength and faith.

    Listening to the snippets, I love how he elevates each song with his own style and makes me totally forget the original version. Just can’t wait to hear all the songs!

    FYI, I got an email about WOW HD having 10% off so I checked and saw that BEGIN. is available for pre-sale and there is no shipping fee. Yay!

    Keeping those in mind who are affected by the recent fires, heat & storms in some parts of the U.S.

    #25 I asked what would this day bring?

    Marlie you have pretty much a BOTW snippet! This is the first time for me to see that video and it is a great find! The song should be powerful.

  47. Here is the cover song ‘Don’t Give Up’ by Peter Gabriel especially for fans like myself who are not familiar with the song and maybe after listening to this David’s snippet will be easier to follow…It will be a great one!

  48. bebereader said

    The new snippet, “Don’t Give Up” is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I know Peter Gabriel but didn’t know the song so I found it on youtube first and played it a few times to familiarize myself with the melody and lyrics.When I played the snippet, the song came to life! The word “beautiful” doesn’t give justice to how good it sounds.

    B – BEGIN.

  49. SandyBeaches said

    Don’t Give Up lyrics for those of us just getting familiar with the song…(Where have I been that I missed this one?)

    In this proud land we grew up strong
    We were wanted all along
    I was taught to fight, taught to win
    I never thought I could fail

    No fight left or so it seems
    I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
    I’ve changed my face, I’ve changed my name
    But no one wants you when you lose

    Don’t give up
    ‘cos you have friends
    Don’t give up
    You’re not beaten yet
    Don’t give up
    I know you can make it good

    Though I saw it all around
    Never thought I could be affected
    Thought that we’d be the last to go
    It is so strange the way things turn

    Drove the night toward my home
    The place that I was born, on the lakeside
    As daylight broke, I saw the earth
    The trees had burned down to the ground

    Don’t give up
    You still have us
    Don’t give up
    We don’t need much of anything
    Don’t give up
    ’cause somewhere there’s a place
    Where we belong

    Rest your head
    You worry too much
    It’s going to be alright
    When times get rough
    You can fall back on us
    Don’t give up
    Please don’t give up

    ‘got to walk out of here
    I can’t take anymore
    Going to stand on that bridge
    Keep my eyes down below
    Whatever may come
    And whatever may go
    That river’s flowing
    That river’s flowing

    Moved on to another town
    Tried hard to settle down
    For every job, so many men
    So many men no-one needs

    Don’t give up
    ’cause you have friends
    Don’t give up
    You’re not the only one
    Don’t give up
    No reason to be ashamed
    Don’t give up
    You still have us
    Don’t give up now
    We’re proud of who you are
    Don’t give up
    You know it’s never been easy
    Don’t give up
    ’cause I believe there’s the a place
    There’s a place where we belong

    SB, thanks for your beautiful article – “his way of giving us a gentle nudge to slow down and look at what is real and natural. He was reminding us then to notice the simple things.”…I don’t know that I know anyone personally who is as in the moment as he. I’m not sure if it is a gift you are born with or a choice – a choice to acknowledge the importance of every second of every day, to acknowledge and appreciate all that life gives you, to experience and acknowledge all that makes it whole.

    kaycee, “just be.” What a lovely place to be.

    I don’t even know what to say…these snippets are incredible. True Colors with a bit of soul, Don’t Give Up, sounds like it has a country slant. Somewhere Only We Know, have been playing it nonstop. And that voice, pure, pure heaven. I think this album is really going to show his brillance.

    C – complex

    3rd snippet, 3rd promo vid :)

    Enjoy!

  53. SandyBeaches said

    Bebe, David does make songs come to life!

    He truly loves nature, another characteristic that I appreciate so much.

    How is the trending party going??

    SB

  54. SandyBeaches said

    Thank you so much JR!

    It is so good to see pictures of him when he is singing!!

    SB

  55. MT said

    52. Thanks, JR, beautiful job on the video!

    SB, same here. I like seeing him while he sings. I am loving these snippets. I can’t decide which one I like the most.

    Sky,
    Loved your comment on this snippet on the OS. haha Nice!

    D – Delicious, delectable, deleriously divine

    Listening to this album will be a deleriously divine experience.

  56. SandyBeaches said

    MT, I am expecting to miss him more though!! But I will love having the album!

    SB

  57. emmegirl14 said

    thanks JR, haven’t seen some of those pics.
    he looks good. real good.

    What is it about his pronunciation, especially when he sings, it makes me crazy. The first “when” in SOWK…♪ tell me when ♪…
    how does he make it sound like that…can’t stop listening.

  58. SandyBeaches said

    Emmegirl you have me scrolling up looking for the “when”!!! Just can’t miss anything and these are just snippets!

    My husband knows what snippets are now!

    I am finished with snippets!!!

    There is only one morning we call Christmas morning and another special day on August 7th…

    But can I wait?? I am going to try!!

  61. jackryan4da said

    Since we have previewed 1/3 of the album, I looped the 3 previews in one promo video

    “My eeeyyyyyyes down below…” The man wails beautifully!

    “What is it about his pronunciation, especially when he sings, it makes me crazy. The first “when” in SOWK…♪ tell me when ♪…
    how does he make it sound like that…can’t stop listening.”

    Yes, what is it about his pronunciation that draws me to him? How does he instinctively know the best way to pronounce a word or a sound to get the desired effect? He’s been doing this to us since AI and I’d love to know more about it….The way he says the word “me” in the first line of the SOWK snippet. and the way he stretches out the word BEGIN in that same snippet. The way he pronounces the letter “L” in many songs has always fascinated me, too. I could go on and on… LOL

  63. jackryan4da said

    He’s been doing this to us since AI and I’d love to know more about it…

    Yeah, Bebereader. It is such a torture!

    Meanwhile, am stuck with his wail in Don’t Give Up: <"My eeeeeyyyyyyyes down below…" waaaaaaaaaahhhh!

  64. tawna21 said

    SB, I love your post. This part, in particular, struck me and caused a warm feeling to come over me –>
    “…….. perhaps where he has gone has become where he has longed to begin. It is possible that this is somewhere and something that he can rely on to be with him and guide him for the rest of his life.”

    With the 3 snippets that have come out, I have become convinced that this album is going to cause some stir to the pot. David’s voice in just a snippet is reflecting a maturity that we haven’t yet witnessed. I can’t wait to hold it in my hot little hands!

  65. marlie7 said

    That wailing, plaintive voice – OMG – I’m dead, I tell ya, DEAD! He is killing us one snippet at a time. And I love every minute of it. :-)

  66. bluesky said

    Sandybeaches:

    “perhaps where he has gone has become where he has longed to begin.”

    I love the peace and serenity I ‘hear’ when I read your article. Thank you for writing this. I shake your hand across the waves of land and water between us.

    61 Jackryan4da: you have such a beautiful talent with videos. You are a true artist. Thank you for this post!

    36 Bebereader, thank you for copying Rosanne Simunovic’s Recollections!
    “For, with David, this was more than just a beautiful song. It was a personal and loving message to his fans, his family members, friends and, of course, to the Lord above for giving him a musical gift that would continue to move and inspire listeners of all ages.”

    And Pamela Pike’s! I so agree with everything she says about DA taking us to a place ‘only he knows’.

    I have said before that the song by Keane is, to me, a kind of love letter to his fans – kind of a summary of where he has traveled with his “on again”, “off again” relationship to the business of music labels. And how that whole thing can make him ‘tired’ and want ‘someplace to begin’. Someplace where he has the room and space to explore and create. Well… DA doesn’t do labels very well in his life… no news there. And his relationship to that “simple thing” is the gold we mine when we let him drill into our hearts and excavate our deepest longings, bringing them into the light – where they shine along side his so summery smile. He is not surprised. He believes we know that place as well as he does. We just have forgotten how to sing our way there.

    That’s okay, DA. You can Pied Piper me.

    bluesky

  67. emmegirl14 said

    They sound even more magnificent looped together, thanks JR.

    ““My eeeyyyyyyes down below…” The man wails beautifully!”….can we survive this.

    ray, he gets you where you live.

    bebe, I’ve been replaying that snippet and analyzing every syllable. Just never heard anyone like him before.

    tawna, “David’s voice in just a snippet is reflecting a maturity that we haven’t yet witnessed”….it’s almost overwhelming.

    SB, wish I could say I am going to hold out or even that I’m gonna try, but I know I’ll cave as soon as the next snippet comes out. I know I will. The idea of finding a private, quiet place on 8/7 and discovering each song in it’s own splendor, its own brilliance, would be incredible….but I know can’t I do it. I’m rootin’ for ya.

  68. WHEW! I finally just finished reading the 36 more comments posted since I last drove by!

    Emme, and Bebe, yes! the pronunciation thing omg. and yes he has been doing it since AI As far as I can tell, no one else does that, or even comes close, to paying attention to every single word, and how it is used in a lyric.Its fascinating. He is such a phenom, in every way.Boggles the mind!

    and Bebe, thanks for posting MCL and Pamela Pikes recollections at 63. They pretty much covered it didn’t they? haha

    this struck me…” I feel I am flying with him in song as he takes you to a place only he knows and when finished gently brings you back.”~MCL~
    funny, now that we have listened (long after she wrote this,) to ♪”somewhere only we know”♫ !!
    …. gee…how many times has this connection to David, given me goosies!

    JR, and Pocoelsy, you guys are quick! haha thanks for the great snippets videos.
    MT, lol♥
    “Listening to this album will be a deleriously divine experience.” like that

    Ray, know what you mean, I can’t stop listening either. Think the 3rd snippet is my new fav.(thus far) of course, there’s more to come!~sigh~

    SB. “My husband knows what snippets are now!” LOL!♥

  69. MT said

    JR
    “My eeeyyyyyyes down below…” The man wails beautifully!

    Yes, he does. Gahh … I can’t get over it!!!!!!

    SB,
    You could be right. It might make us miss him more. Can you just imagine if he comes back and performs these live?

    But this night owl is turning in. {{hugs}}

    I’ll probably be hearing that wail in my sleep!

  73. SandyBeaches said

    Thank you JR for putting the three snippets together because now there already is a flow to the sound of the album that he is creating.

    Your snippets may be too tempting to pass by to hold out. We will see how strong I am or if I melt!

    Tomorrow is another day!

    Bluesky,, there is a great distance between us but David shortens it to nearly no miles at all and he can do that from Chile!

    SB

  74. jans11 said

    These snippets are♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!!!!!!! The album may be a cover album but I would never know it because I’m not familiar with any of the songs so far and David makes them his own anyway! The songs that I know, we haven’t heard yet and I know they will be great too! You guys are right, the album will be a killer! Hope a few more million people realizes it too and buys it! I would love for it to be a big hit for David…he so deserves it!♥

  75. SandyBeaches said

    Good day! It was a busy day yesterday with the new snippet and the trending party last night. The fan base has the best promoters! What a work force.

    The July 1st and 4th celebrations are over so on with summer and the new album!

    But just when it seems quiet you never know!!

  76. silverfox said

    SB,

    I’ve always been a fan of your creative articles dedicated to David. Your sensitivity & intuition when it comes to David is evident in your words which flow so easily from your heart with so much admiration & respect.

    I can’t say enough about the snippets, just that only David’s voice has the power to lift me up & help me BEGIN to forget whatever worries & problems I may be dealing with at the moment. Only David has the power to do that in 20 seconds! He may not be visible or available to us for the next 2+ years, but his VOICE will be a constant source of wonder, comfort & inspiration.

    SB, thanks again for your beautiful article. BTW, wordpress & I have been at war so here’s hoping this comment posts!

  77. emmegirl14 said

    Still listening, still swooning.

    This album will open some eyes with it’s inclusive maturity – the chosen songs, the musicality, the voice, the stylizing. Beyond his years.

  78. Djafan said

    Emmegirl, my headsets are stuck to my head. My heart just pounds everytime I hear that amazing voice. Beyond his years indeed. I remember an uncle of David’s commenting right after AI that we hadn’t heard nothing yet when it came to what David is capable of. I think we may be getting glimpses. David sure started embracing the not being a teenager anymore.

    Gladys, good passage buying today!!!!

    Sky and Mt, wow trending was rough yesterday. People were at it for at least 6 hours, crazy. But we learned the error of our ways. No periods or full caps or any other punctuation. Once we removed them Begin David Archuleta it started trending by state and country’s until he finally made WWTT!!!! This morning he was still trending in Salt Lake, home support has been great!

    SB, the level of fan support David has been receiving has been incredible and it’s being noticed. David Archuleta is relevant and his fans will continue to remind the media of this until his epic return.

    SF, so glad to see you!!! Hope things are getting better for you.

    This ♥

  91. bluesky said

    “In the arms of the Angel”. DA had to have felt those arms in order to sing like that. It is not so much that he is offering his own arms (though I’ll bet he would if he felt they were needed), but that he is whispering of those times he may have needed a comforting pair of arms, and the spiritual strength and warmth that he has himself, been granted from time to time. He is suggesting, inviting, and confirming that such arms do exist.

    Thank you, DA. You are such a brilliant companion. You both share your own light and still search for a greater – that you trust – because of your own experiences. Thank you for making the choices you have, choices that have led to those experiences making your countenance shine and your voice vibrate with waves of peace and joy.

    PS I hope you have an amazing ton of fun at your “not concert” concert in Chile, with all of your new musical missionary friends.

    It’s evident that David put his heart and soul into this CD when he recorded these songs the night before he left for his mission. You can hear the passion in every snippet.

    BEGIN. is CD that I will listen to until it ‘wears out’. For this reason, I must get a digital copy, too.

    Watching Jonah and baseball at the same time. :) Nobody can say that I don’t multi-task. haha

    Recently my niece reserve the hotel and transport, (internet is a blessing). I’m writing and still I can not believe everything I did before.
    When I received the information, my first words were “I’m going to Chile” was a natural and I’m here now, with everything planned.
    I will travel by plane for the first time in my life.
    David, is a fact, you changed my life

  103. stidwell56 said

    SB, thank you for such a beautiful article. So amazing, as always!! I love it here at The Voice! I am so excited when my email comes that says there is a new one up, and I never miss even one comment here. Life has been crazy the past month. Daughter and family moving into a larger home and now are living with us for a few weeks while redecorating the new one. So not much alone time to be on the computer. Spending lots of time coloring (a ton), playing with the playhouse, playing ponies, wading in the creek in the backyard…I feel like a kid again sometimes. Up in Park City for a week and am having fun catching up on things while alone for an hour here. Just bookmarked the snippets from SoundCloud on my iPhone and they are playing on repeat over and over and over. This album is going to be epic!!!! I can hardly wait. I will be in Vail, Colorado on August 7th, so thank goodness I saw on Facebook today that it will be available on iTunes according to Shadow Mountain Records, since I won’t be back home till the 11th to get my ordered CD’s and there probably is nowhere in Vail that it will be available. There is no way I could wait till the 11th to hear it. I would have to drive to Denver if it weren’t available on iTunes.
    Well, off to the Oakley, Utah rodeo with hubby, and two of my kids, well kids to me.
    Enjoy the snippets, and have fun in Unplugged tonight. Hope I get to see this surprise video some other time, Abs, please???
    Take care all!!

    Thanks for the lovely article, SB.

    Although he wouldn’t want it, need it, or take it, I wish I had a million dollars to pay David for what he’s given me.
    His voice, guys, can anyone else do that? With the lack of time he had, he could’ve phoned it in but he did not. And this is just snippets.

  110. djafan said

    SB, Gladys dream is coming true ;)

    Betsy, What David has given us blows me away daily.

    Dja,
    I wish I knew where the new footage was from! I wish!

    Meanwhile, American Idol TV News just posted this:

    “In some shape or form, traveling plays a role in everyone one of our new “American Idol” notes — whether we are talking about a season 4 winner heading home, a season 10 runner-up heading north, or a season 7 star continuing his travels on a mission.

    With that … let’s start with some new music.

    Previews from BEGIN – David Archuleta may be in Chile for the next year and a half, but his team is still putting out some music that he recorded prior to his exit. The album in full covers out on August 7, but you can hear snippets of some of the covers now!

    Personally, our highlights include still his stellar version of Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know,” and of course an angelic cover of “Arms of An Angel” — a version that we may even like better than the original.”

    I’m in complete awe with the beauty of these snippets! SB, hang in there! You can do it (I couldn’t)!!

    I’m leaving the comfort of my big blue computer chair and taking a road trip up north to Calgary tomorrow, so I’ll be back with the funky laptop. I’m slightly nervous with the idea of ‘crossing the border’. I have NO idea what to expect, how it’s done, what I should do. I’m hoping they find me legal. ;)

    Dja; In snippet heaven! Love to see that we have different options to order from but keeping fingers crossed for Itunes to come through. About the promo … had a crazy idea & sent emails the editors of Rollingstone, Billboard, People, Entertainment Weekly about BEGIN. It’ll probably end up in nowhere land but it sure felt good to hit the send button!

    Oh, BEGIN is my favorite word to use at home now, haha. I think David has chosen the perfect title to communicate what this album means.

    Anyone else impatient? Bring it on David … I’m ready for you to bare your soul!

    Tawna; Don’t worry & enjoy your new venture!

    SF & Shawna; Glad to hear from you both … hugs.
