Review: Something ‘Bout Love, The Video

Posted by djafan on Saturday, August 7, 2010

There is so much I love about the new Something ‘Bout Love music video.  The first two videos he did for Crush and ALTNOY were fine, but they didn’t move me.  This video does.  It expands my heart.  It has depth and meaning and subtle messages to intrigue and make one ponder and wonder.  In a world of videos that are shallow, empty, and heartless, I just find that altogether wonderful.

The video begins with the camera taking in just his shoes as he strolls a sidewalk littered with crushed petals.

We are invited to walk in his shoes, to understand a little more of who he really is inside.  The next moment reveals a full-on face shot and it’s not the smiling face to which we have become so accustomed.  It is the face of a man who is intensely engaged in a purpose.  The stride is confident and relaxed but very deliberate.  It is as though David is saying right from the start…“I will be taken seriously as an artist and I am not all rainbows and sunshine.  Deal with it.”   Yet despite this, light refracts into rainbows before him even while shadows play against his face and the tera cotta wall beside him.  This kind of subtle dichotomy is present throughout the film.

Before the video was made his answer to a tweet requesting he make this into a dance video was:
“The message in the song isn’t really about dancing though lol.  It’s more heartfelt.  Kind of odd how they are different.”

It is odd and he plays on this theme of dualism, light/dark, left/right, pain/pleasure, despair and yet the over-riding truth that love is worth all we suffer for it.

“The video and the song are about people who are feeling a little down and a little alone … and just feeling a little frustrated with love or their situation in life. Even though you might feel down with love, there’s something about it you shouldn’t give up on.

aceshowbiz

The camera soon pans to a wide shot and there is a huge white arrow painted on the wall beside him that is pointing in the direction he is walking.  The message here is that moving forward is the only way past the pain.

A boy meets the barrier of a tall fence, and without hesitation, surmounts the obstacle and moves on.  A train speeds forward.

David wears his watch on his left wrist when he is outside alone which he  curiously switches to his right wrist when we see him later that night at the party.   He is asked about this on twitter and replies “Yep it actually was intentional.”

It is interesting that in his seven minute Ramblin’ Man vlog, posted shortly before the release of the video, David is wearing a titanium bracelet, called an Equalibryum.  On the website it claims these bracelets are more than a silicon band but, “like armor for the soul,” designed to “regulate the body’s bio-electrical energy flow giving you an edge.”

equalibryum

I wonder if his wearing the titanium bracelet in the vlog was a clue to the meaning of the intentional switching of the watch across the body.  To clue us in to the message that positive energy has a healing effect.

From an article by Victoria Anisman-Reiner, “Wear Your Watch on the Right Wrist
Protect Your Heart: Common Sense and the Left-Handed Heart Meridian”  dated Apr 4, 2007:

“If you’re right-handed, you probably wear a watch on your left wrist. You might consider switching, however, when you consider the impact that your watch’s battery can have on the health of your heart meridian and, ultimately, on your heart.  The heart is one of the 14 major organs and systems in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Each of these organs has a corresponding meridian, a line of energy flow through the body that becomes strong or weak in tandem with that body part. In healing a weakened organ, the energy of the related meridian is used both to diagnose the health of the body and as a means to begin to strengthen it“.

naturalmedicine

Perhaps these two events are unrelated and as someone later tweeted to the person who received the reply from David that it was “intentional,” it may simply be that “my guess about @DavidArchie and the watch switch – He always Chooses The Right – like CTR”
Yet it is telling that immediately after we see the change of the watch to the right wrist, there follows a girl painting a heart on paper that, with the addition of time and help, becomes by its very largeness, a strong visual statement, the image of a strong heart.

It is at least a possibility that in a video about strengthening weakened hearts and spirits that these “intentional” symbols are meant to convey the message that healing can occur if one avoids negative energy and stays positive and hopeful.

At any rate I love that he has made a video that encourages this kind of thoughtful speculation.  I love that the video is not all romantic, bubblegum fluff.  When I read the advertisement for the cast of the video: roller bladders that are capable of astounding feats, an ethnically ambiguous, edgy girl, I thought it would be just that.  Somehow I think David may have exerted his will a bit to make this video reflect what he feels about the song, which is quite different from mere youthful, summer fun.  I have noticed that in his own quiet way he gets respect, simply because he won’t give or accept anything less.  It was only a matter of time before this same quiet insistence on validation, on being valued and respected, would carry over to his vision for his work.

Two examples that have David’s signature all over them is the scene with the small, lonely boy who is invited to play basketball by the bigger boys.  The other is the young girl stooping to help an elderly woman who has dropped her belongings.  Romantic love is not the only kind that is missing in people’s lives.  Loneliness is not confined to only those who have loved and lost romantically, but is a daily part of many lives and if you are human you have experienced these feelings at one time or another.  The moral is clear:  It often takes very little to gladden a heart.

Poof made a very insightful comment about the video:  “To me, David is not looking sad, but intense.   He seriously wants us to listen to the lyrics and his mood fits the lyrics.  The contrast in the happiness and pain in relationships goes back and forth quickly in this song. I think David does a great job of expressing those two sides. I especially love the “look straight in your eye” when he is talking about the “scared in the night” part of the song. (One my all time favorite, IMPORTANT, lyrics I have ever heard) David was, I say it again, stunning.”

There is so much more.  The light bulb at the end of the dark alley, the alleyway itself where he stands alone with one hand on a ledge, the exuberance he displays when hope rises in the end,

the celebration and finally, a smile when someone hands him a cell phone that literally delivers “Joy” in the form of his dear friend.  The smile makes its return and is more welcome for being lost to us for a little while.  Only for a little while.  That is the real message of the song, that our joy will be with us “in a bit” if we will only hang in, hang on; it’s gonna be alright.  From those first slow steps to the ramped up passion in his expressions and movements to that last heart-stopping smile, he takes us with him for the ride of our lives.

    What a review!
    What a wonderfully insightful mind you have!

    Left to Right
    And may I add: Yin to Yang.
    Yin is considered to be Darkness, Melancholy
    Yang is …………. Sunshine, Light, Joy

    A musical vid, seemingly simple with its message, for us to enjoy listening to (or dancing to) has so much profundity of positive ideas, inspiration and encouragement hidden under the folds of a piece of beautiful music and brought to us by a voice gifted by God to His favourite son.

    His depth of character and mind continues to astound me. I am filled with gratification for loving someone so worthy of my eternal admiration, respect and love.
    In short, I am reduced to a heap of tears and sighs….

    After the first few viewings of the vid, I thought there was “too much dancing”. I now understand it to be “a celebration of love”.
    More sighs….more tears…

At the same time she said David was having a twitter party, and my daughter showed me her phone that showed he answered Amy…I was so excited for her, asked her what she said to him…she told me she mentioned what I pointed out! haha Big twitter discussion about my little observation. I like your take on it…also I hadn’t noiticed the arrow on the wall either.

    Angelica, this is the best review of SBL ever! It’s so touching and very true indeed. I’m so glad that David is setting things his own way with his music now. I like the Crush and ALTNOY videos too, but SBL is on a whole new level. It’s very emotionally stimulating. When I watched David’s expressions in the video, it was almost like I was feeling the emotions of the song.
    This video is altruism personified. I remember David once saying that “it’s so cool to see people help other people”. This part of David’s personality is definitely portayed in the video, as you mentioned, the younger lady helping the older lady and the teenagers playing basketball with the little kid. I was incredibly moved by this.
    I could feel David’s intensity and seriousness in expressing the underlying message of this song; which is to believe, and not give up even though we face tough times with love or with any difficulty in life.
    Thanks so much for this amazing review 🙂 It certainly made my day!

And to think that this video was made in only a day. David had a clear vision going into this of what he wanted it to be, and I’m so happy that he got to say what he really wanted to say. This article is love! Thank you for this.

    So here we go again, the video has to be watched now another 100 times! I missed the arrow, I missed so much. It is amazing…

    I had the feeling almost right away, that the young child represents all of the children from all of the countries that David is reaching out to. Definately, he is a man on a mission and being wonderfully successful.

    His complete CD will be awesome and it will be the articles and writings like Angelica’s, that will open the eyes of many people.

    Angelica,

    You’ve given us a feast to think about!
    Your comprehensive analysis of the SBL video was very thought-provoking!

    There’s a lot more to it than a beautiful voice and a handsome face. Have to agree with Bliss’ comment on the last article. When David’s in the picture, everything in the background seems to disappear. That’s why it took me about 20 views in The Voice Unplugged the other night (Bless Abrra’s heart for putting it on repeat) to take my eyes off David for a few seconds and notice that there was actually a story being told. I caught the rainbow but missed the white arrow. I caught the switch of the watches but wondered why. This video makes you think! There’s no cheesefest here; it’s symbolism at it’s finest. My heart swells with pride at David’s genius and that he dares to be so vulnerable.

    Speaking of the man himself, I wish he could read your review and see that he more than succeeded in getting his message across.

    Tip of the hat to you, Angelica!

But wow your insight, your sensitivity to the genius that is David has made me look deeper than I thought was possible. Thank you for this, I knew David was amazingly gifted but he just blew the roof right off for me. And to think we have a whole album of this David very soon with more music videos to ponder.

    Angelica – “I especially love the “look straight in your eye” when he is talking about the “scared in the night” part of the song. (One my all time favorite, IMPORTANT, lyrics I have ever heard) David was, I say it again, stunning.” “

    When I first heard this song (and every time since) that part just pulled at my heartstrings and brought me to the edge of tears. It makes me think of my four-year-old great-grandson who sometimes has nightmares. He phones his granny (my daughter) every night at bedtime so she can give him some happy thoughts to help keep the bad dreams away. I wonder if David has had those same fears – note the cry in his voice when he sings the words ‘to make it right’. So poignant.

    I absolutely love your amazing analysis of the entire song – so many things to think about in each and every line and in every scene of the video. Thank you.

    Amazing review Angelica! Loved it all! How did I miss that arrow? I had not noticed it until you pointed it out. Also I had been struggling to connect the dots with the young man jumping the fence. What you said makes perfect sence and fits with the next shot being the train. What about the girl on the motorcycle/bike. I had pondered that also meant- ready to go- but was not sure- but it would seem be be consistent with the train and the guy jumping the fence.

    I have to also admit- that I like this video better than Crush. In my opinion it has more substance. That is not to take away from Crush- because it was also very nice. My favorite scene in that is David playing the piano on the dock by the lake. Not sure what my favorite scene in this is yet. Gotta think on that a bit. Guess that means I need to watch it at least another 25 times.

    Angelica, as always, as standing-O to you!

    You are “ON THE MONEY” and like David’s “Something ‘Bout Love” single & video, a “MASTER CLASS” of your minute by minute breakdown. No doubt you have interpreted perfectly what David wanted to personally convey in both the song & video. Such genius in this fan site. David deserves no less than the love & respect shown here always.

    Now for my inner excitement which is hard to contain no matter how hard I try, even though there are some issues I am having under the surface. 😦

    You could have knocked me over with a feather when I heard David would be appearing HERE at the WDJX Annual Birthday Bash in two weeks! First thing I did was confirm his appearance, then I purchased tickets for my daughter, grand-daughter (both non-die-hard fans) & myself. They both know how much I adore David so there was no question they would go with me. I will make myself as inconspicuous as I can among the tweens/teens. Believe me when I tell you, this is NOT a gig where you would normally see people my age. This is strictly an under 20-25 type gig. I think the only people older than 30 will be parents of the young’uns or older fans of David coming in from out of town. And David’s set may only be a few songs. I’m happy David will be here, but not so happy he is still having to perform at radio events like these just to have his music played. Problem is, I have yet to hear SBL on WDJX. Instead, they play snippets of Crush for the Bash promo! **sigh**

    Anyway, I still feel unbelievably lucky that I will see & hear David very soon!

    Oh, my dear Angelica. What you just did with two articles in a row is like what Tom Hanks did with Philadelphia and Forrest Gump. (Btw, Tom Hanks is one of my most favorite celebrities in the world, just a few paces behind David. Aren’t you glad to be mentioned in the same breath? Lol!) Maybe you should teach humanities as an alternative profession. Your artistic taste and creative instincts are admirable. Two consecutive notable creations! Bravo!

    I have attempted to comment especially when the SBL video came out. But due to the hectic past few days that kept me on the road for most of the day, I’ve been too tired and sleepy to post anything. Nonetheless, my enthusiasm for anything David gives me the will to stay awake long enough to read up on the latest just before my eyes succumb to my body’s call for sleep.

    I’m ecstatic to find out that David’s SBL video is doing so well after being opened up for international viewing. Jive should know by now that he should not be confined to the boundaries of the US. He is a truly global artist and should be marketed as one. The stats that show the age group he attracts confirm that he is being taken seriously by the older age group, not just
    female teens. I think the SBL video is paving the way for him to be given more artistic freedom in his career choices. It’s the greatest means for him to completely connect with his listeners and viewers, especially those who do not follow him closely or watch him perform live in his concerts. I agree that David is intentionally trying to overturn misconceptions about who he is and what the song is about in this video. He is as deep as any seriously talented artist can get, only in young, sweet sheep’s clothing.

    May I just say that the video confirmed how I felt about the song the first few times I listened to it, and it is how I imagined him performing the song in my head. I saw glimpses of ALTNOY (the angst in the video, and again the camera!) and the intensity of DLG performed live. I got teary-eyed the first few times I watched it, re-living how it had affected me and how I thought David must feel singing it. However, I marvel at how he, thru his director, was able to convey subtle messages thru a myriad of images which, Angelica, you picked up quite instinctively. It’s as if you both think and create in the same fashion. I was also puzzled by how, in his last vlog, he would brush his hair with his right arm with the wristband when we all know he is left-handed. I was thinking it was a discreet advertisement for Equalibryum. But it could have also been intentional as a hint at what will be shown in the video if anyone was observant enough to notice. But other images in the video were puzzling as well but filled with symbolism, like the large arrow on the wall, the guy jumping over the fence, the moving train, the girl in a motorbike, recurring close-ups to the party lights, etcetera. Apart from wanting to watch David’s emotion-filled but handsome face over and over, it’s also the little details in the images which make you want to watch the video several times. And the discussions across the fansites are helping the video get multiple hits. More please!

    Ray #32,

    I was hit hard by your comment. I cried almost instantaneously when I read what Jeff said to you about David. He is undoubtedly Godsent.

    Angelica– Well, I feel like you took me by the hand and walked me through the video, pointing out all the attractions and their meaning. Well done!

    Does the phrase ” Was blind , but now I see” work as an excuse? The very best thing would be if David were to take all of us through the video and give us his take on every scene. Explain to us what he was trying to convey with every facial expression. For that I’d pay big bucks!

    I saw a few things you pointed out , but very few. My take on the guy jumping the fence and the train–symbolizes a love getting away or a missed opportunity for love.

    Like so many others here , I had a hard time seeing anything but David at first, then after the twentieth time watching I started to see more, but nowhere near what you saw.

    Fess up, you put that video on super slo-mo , didn’t you? Then you took it into your lab and analyzed every frame.

    In the future, I’ll try to keep my head out of the sand–well halfway maybe.

    And besides..doubt there will be M&G’s with David. Heck, even though he will be superior to the others at the Bash, but who knows if he will open, close or be the in-between performer? And still trying to figure out who the AI guest is..perhaps Kris, or maybe Cook or Jordin? I just know it has to be one of the AI winners, otherwise why keep it under wraps? Just a guess.

    Angelica, I had to go back & read your insights into David & the deep meaning of the video. Your insights are so intuitive it’s chilling. In a very good way! 🙂

    Thinking back to the Crush video…

    I always thought David’s “acting” was so good & right on especially at the end when he & his “crush” are on the porch. The way he looks at her, his expressions. Wow! He was perfect.

    Then ALTNOY. Now here, David was acting as if his life depended on it. I really believe David was uncomfortable with the whole experience but did what he was contracted to do because at that time he just didn’t want to make “waves”. In the “Making of ALTNOY” video you can almost “feel” his discomfort in some parts. But that is the beauty of the video. His acting was so believable. His expressions of angst, despair, pain & acceptance and his gestures & his pacing back & forth were so right on even though his character was far from the real David as we know him. IMO, first rate acting in the interpretation of his song.

    I can definitely see David as a first rate actor in the future if he so chooses. 😀

    Now with SBL..again David expresses perfectly with his face & gestures what he wants to convey to his audience. I think though, that in THIS video, much of what David is conveying here is NOT acting. He is serious. He is telling us what he believes, what he knows “love” is all about in his heart & and he’s telling us the best way he possibly can…through music.

    I’m so anxious to see & hear The Other Side Of Down. I have a feeling SBL is not necessarily the most poignant or expressive song on the album. I have a feeling we will be even more amazed at the depth of David’s genius than we already are. 😀

    Good night all & sweet dreams.

All of the comments today have been so awesome. It was so nice to come home from a long day today with my mother to this. So beautiful. I too feel so much with this video and this song touches me so deeply. It has really helped me through a real tough time lately. I could listen to it 24/7 and never be tired of it. This album is going to be something, isn’t it?

    This 80th birthday thing I took my mom too I of course had to bring up David in some context, and did it by showing my pictures on my phone to a cousin I hadn’t seen for years of my grandchildren. And of course, there are tons of David pixs intermingled among them and she saw them and told me her daughter just loved him on idol. So I told her to get on YouTube and look at his new single, and to get his book for her for her birthday or Christmas. She had no idea he had written a book and then of course I proceeded to tell her all about him and anyone else who wanted to listen. And now I think all of them are so impressed with what I told them, they are all going to buy his book and all his CD’s now. I just love opening up other people’s world to what an amazing person he is still and continues to be even being famous. I also told them to go to UTube and listen to “Be Still My Soul” from Rexburg in June. Told them they would be blown away and that I was there and as I told them about my feelings and all, they said the hairs on their arms stood up and chills went through them to know that he could make that kind of impact on his fans. Just me telling them about it impressed them. Got all their emails so I could keep in contact with them and keep telling them all my experiences I have with fans and his concerts and all.

    Well gotta run and put three little grandsons to bed. Love it here.

    I like the idea of David having a global presence because his message is for everyone. It is not at all out of the question for him as we have only seen a smidgen of what he is capable of.

    David mentions how he is impressed by the talent of Michael Jackson in making videos and I can see David wanting to grow and make equally creative and meaningful videos. My heart races when I think about this happening in my lifetime.

    For those who like to follow music charts, I found this article on my homepage and these chart numbers very interesting. See below Chart Watch by Paul Grein:

    I have no comment to his looks: neither the WAY he looks nor the way he LOOKS.

    (You just resuscitate me long enough to take the air out of my lungs, DA. Of COURSE we respect you! We respect all earthquakes, tsunami’s and hurricanes ((erm: himmicanes)). It’s just that there is not enough duct-tape on earth to withstand your: clothes, smile, laugh, charm, sound, deliberately delivered delicacies of Persephone-binding love.

    Just not enough tape.)

    So. This is just to thank Angelica for the great article and to share some of the stuff I have noticed. Arrow: with love there is only one way to go: forward.
    1. The first two depictions of “love” seem “perfect”.
    2. Life is not like that: daily challenges to young and old
    3. Some hurdles we can take in our stride (fence)
    4. Some are big and we have no control over: like a train = someone leaving us or us them – no goodbyes
    5. Love can tear you up: like the torn paper – barely painted heart – one person
    6. A new heart, glueing the paper together, bigger than ever dreamed of – two people
    7. “Joy” will see us in a bit – joy gets passed to us from one person to the next, comes from connecting with people
    8. He (love) is always there in the background trying to reach us. We do not always notice love, but it calls to us

    Thanks for your great site.

    Hollywood Life:

    David isn’t sure Idol will last – especially now that it has stiff competition from Simon Cowell’s new show, X-Factor!

    After the recent American Idol shakeup, the show’s future seems slightly uncertain – and former contestant David Archuleta thinks it mayjust may cave entirely with the presence of former judge Simon Cowell’s competing show, X-Factor!

    “We’ll just have to see what happens. X-Factor is coming out too, so it’ll be interesting to see how that goes. Simon is joining that. Simon isn’t going away,” the season seven runner-up told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the Teen Choice Awards August 8. The deciding factor? “The X-Factor,” the 19-year-old joked. “We’ll just have to see how this new vibe comes with a new set of judges, the new dynamic between them, how it all works out. We’ll just have to see!”

    As for whom he’d like to see fill Simon, Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres’ seats on Idol, David tells us, “It’d be interesting to have someone like Madonna or Elton John that’s very iconic and seems like they’d be very opinionated about what they think. We’ll just have to see who’s set in stone at the end. It’s hard keeping up.”

    We’re with you, David!

    Okay so I lied. I’m back. LOL

    Here’s the article from Zap-2-It, that went along with the video in #143.

    “‘American Idol’ Choice Idol Alum winner David Archuleta walked into the Teen Choice Awards press room Sunday (Aug. 8) just as the Choice Smile Award was being shown on the TV screens.

    The volume on the press room TV is always turned down when winners arrive so the reporters can concentrate on what they’re saying. David, acutely conscious of what a monumental TV moment he was interrupting, smiled as he asked the audience, “Can you let me know who wins Choice Smile?”

    Seconds later, Taylor Lautner jumped up to get his Smile surfboard. “Taylor Lautner,” remarked David. “That’s fun. He’s a cool guy.”

    Then Archie talked about upcoming album, “The Other Side of Down,” and how he wants this record to be more in tune with himself as a person.

    “I’m kind of a dork and I just wanted to show that … I’m not trying to be something cool and impressive…. When just be yourself, that’s what people connect to the most.”

    More reasons to love Archie:

    On “Glee”: “We finally have someone to relate to, people who didn’t quite fit in but who love music. ‘Glee’ represents all of us geeks.”

    On rumored “Idol” judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler: “They are really interesting choices. They need to give ‘American Idol’ a new face. I feel like it’s time for ‘American Idol’ to have a complete facelift.”

    On rumored “Idol” judges Elton John and Madonna: “They are reallly experienced and people will really listen to what they have to say because they have a lot of cred.”

    On fave books: ‘To Kill a Mockingbird.’ Also the Dr. Seuss books ‘when I was little.’ …”My favorite book is ‘The Alchemist,’ about someone who is trying to follow their dreams and their heart but being unsure of what that is.”

It was pretty amusing to watch David walk from behind – he walks like a gawky kid. You couldn’t tell by that walk he’s the same guy with those gahh-ful photos about 2 weeks ago. But I was particularly disheartened by the booing at the start. Felt it was rude. Why would they do that? Anyway, I’m glad that they started applauding after David had that long, soulful note at the song’s climax and at the end. He definitely wowed them and showed them how the SSB should be sung. So there!

    OMYGAWSH it is now OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL!!! I panicked today when we got word that the Latino News Fest had been canceled and still no listing of David anywhere on the DeltaFest site. But hallelujah! He is there at last just posted tonight and well I just had to make a screen cap of it. BTW, this is my concert buddy who’s email was posted on FOD a few days ago of her call to the festival.

    Bizmom43 called the Delta Fest and reports back with a confirmation on David’s appearance. Best email ever.

    “I just broke down and called the Delta Fair in Cordova, TN and politely asked them……”I know about a gazillion David Archuleta Fans from Texas, Louisianna, Mississippi, etc yada yada…. who hear DAVID ARCHULETA IS COMING TO YOUR FAIR!!!! Can you tell me when???? “ The nice young southern accented rep stated….”David is performing Sept 12th at 7″. I spazzed and said “Yank Thou!!! I mean Tank Hugh!!! I mean THANK YOU!!!”

    Spazz. haha.

    Angelica #192 I had that Simon game. I think we had the travel edition. I played it until it drove me crazy. Then I through it in the garbage. LOL

    David’s coming to TN! So excited for you and everyone else who’s getting a chance to see him.

    Love this!

    I always wanted to know how was the future, but now I want to know the day to day. It’s so interesting to an artist like David, I must confess that sometimes I am impatient. Also, sometimes I get angry, to see other singers who have more diffusion and belong to the same company of David, but then, as I think David would think, give thanks to God for what we have.
    Sometimes I tell myself that my heart will not be as great as david, I can not be as comprehensive as the injustices me very angry.
    The industry promotes singers, who fill a stage with lights, dancers, flashy clothes, many instruments, fire, acrobatic dance and ultimately far beyond one song. David always starts with this last and not need much more than that.
    But as David says, we must thank God for all we have, I give thanks to God for putting david in my way and I ask God for patience, patience

    Bringing this over from previous thread.

    Pabuckie!
    haha! my first visit to the VOICE, and I love it here! Love your article! Gosh ya’ll are such beautiful heartfelt writers. What a special place to visit.
    think I was 13 when my girlfriends and I would spend endless Saturday mornings cutting out pictures of “Dr. Kildare”,from every teen magazine we could get our hands on. (actor Richard Chamberlain) and pasting them into a scrapbook.Gosh, he had a hit song, and album out too then. Anyone want to take a stab at that one?He was “dreamy”.
    howevaaah……..
    NOTHING like David…think I prefer finding my real go getter inner “fan girl” at this stage of my life.allows one to fully appreciate EVERYTHING about David, and the exceptional young man that he is at his age. His voice takes me to a place I have never been before, inside myself, down deep into the heart,while he’s dialing up the soul…”hello? yes I am here and I am singing to YOU!”
    I find that incredible. Can’t ignore something like that.what is that?!It’s such a gift this guy has, that he is sharing. How can you ignore it., or turn your back on it, something that beautiful?
    I can’t wait to see where this wonderful ‘being’ is going to take us next! I just want to “hang in/hang on for the ride”

    Pocoelsy,

    Malaysia rocks! Someone tweeted David this afternoon that SBL was #1 there and he tweeted back, “Really? Where at?” Don’t think he got a reply but maybe the tweet came from Malaysia.

    A trifling little over a hundred thousand views before the video passes 2 million in less than a week!!

    #224 Angelica, Oh yeh and Oh no I should have tweeted him ha and then got his reply and then I’d flip and gone ha ha. By tomorrow morning the view’ll be 2 million I’m sure of that, I make sure I’ll do my part so diligently and willingly.

    I need to let this out, I have to confess!!!! Down side of being international fan, I cannot down load his song and his mv. I don’t have itune account and such, fail… I make it up by asking my relative who lives in the Us.(and he runs a Thai restuarant in Florida!!) to pre order the fan pack and deluxe version(s) for me and when it hit the store here I sure buy a few more cds. and I vote for him in anything and everything I come across like a crazy cat woman, so I feel a bit better that I can contribute just tiny bit for our man. There I said it (again).

    Skydancer1x #219 Welcome to The Voice! Hope you come back. I guess you could say I was the original fangirl. I was a fan of Richard Chamberlain’s, “Dr. Kildare”, too. I was very young but loved the show and even bought his album. If memory is correct, that was my first LP. The song you referred to is “All I Have to Do is Dream”. I actually liked the flip side of that 45 better, called “Hi Lili, Hi-Lo”.

    Just for the record, the pic in #217 is killing me, but in a good way, of course. 😉
