David Archuleta ~ BEGIN. Have A Favorite?
Posted by bebereader on Monday, August 13, 2012
BEGIN. It’s only a week that I have it in my possession and it’s already in my head, under my skin and coursing through my veins. I want to devour it, memorize the lyrics, phrasings and melodies until it becomes a part of me. I can’t get enough of this album. David’s vocals have a more mature sound on these songs that is very appealing. The more I listen, the more I crave and the more I crave, the more I listen. It’s fascinating, intoxicating and captivating. Last week, all ten were my favorites; I could not single any out that I liked more than the others. Now I notice that there are a few that are getting more plays on my IPod than others. My favorite is “Don’t Give Up”. I didn’t know this song existed before BEGIN. although I did sneak a peak on YouTube when I heard it was on the tracklist. It wasn’t a song that I fell in love with but I knew that would change once David got hold of it. I just didn’t realize how much I would love it! The depth and maturity in David’s delivery of this song shows how much he has grown as an artist.
So my top five are:
1. Don’t Give Up
3. Everybody Hurts
4. Somewhere Only We Know
The one I keep avoiding is “Pride” but I know that will change because that’s the progression I go through with David’s music. I start out loving all the songs, then narrow it down to the ones I absolutely adore and the ones I avoid. Ultimately it goes back to loving each and every song.
What are your favorites and why? Can you pick one? Can you pick five? Do you find yourself skipping any of the songs? Let’s discuss.
