The Essential David Archuleta ~ Defining the Ephemeral

Not So Black and White

Most of us have mixed tapes (not tapes, but you know) of our favorite live performances by David. His live shows always seem to bring the best out of him, his voice is always so magical when he’s connecting to us this way.

So the other day I was thinking. What are my favorite songs off his official albums? Now I want to burn a CD of the best songs he’s put out – combine the best of the best. All my faves. Kind of a Greatest Hits, in my opinion, CD. 😉

I’ll allow myself 16, it’ll be difficult..

You Can – My first favorite recording of his. ❤

To Be With You – Love this song, but maybe because of the live versions. Not sure. Keeping it though.

Let Me Go – VERY under appreciated (by me) until recently. He ROCKS it out.

Somebody Out There – Duh. I’ll never not love this special song.

Ave Maria – I know it’s a Christmas song, but it’s too perfect not to include. Also, it’s my list. 🙂

Good Place – My very favorite thing he’s ever done, ever. I love the produced, recorded version. I love the live, acoustic one that I was lucky enough to hear. Both make me weep. Every word of this song is gold. I still want to stencil the chorus on the upper part of my kitchen wall. This song means so much.

Parachutes and Airplanes – His voice is so stellar here. The word blue, is all I’m saying.

Look Around – This is another that took a while for me to even LIKE. But when it hit me, it really hit me. This part:

My Kind of Perfect – It’s just – Idk – it’s pure David. ❤ (that and I remember where I was, who I was with, and what I was doing when I first heard it. Like a world event, lol)

Forevermore – Exquisite. Love the quiet music and the way he follows it, and leads it. 🙂

You are My Song – Gah. Love this song. From the first. Pretty love song.

Tell Me – He sings this sad song so well. Awww. Anya will come back, don’t you worry. 😉 Love the piano as well.

Nandito Ako – David singing in Tagalog drives me nuts. In a good way. 🙂

Don’t Give Up – This ended up being one of my most played on Begin. It tortures me. Sad.

I don’t want to hear about anyone else attempting to sing this. Cause he’s already done it.

Angel – Heartbreaking. I heard this after I heard the news of Cory Monteith’s death in a hotel and just cried. I’m not even a fan of his. But it is so sad, and the words “dark, cold, hotel room.” I just couldn’t take it.

Broken – Gorgeous and so David. Obviously. The world really needs to hear this. For their own good.

Let’s call this next one a bonus track since there are 17 now. 😉

Be Still My Soul – This song has such a beautiful message and sometimes I can’t tell when his voice ends and the violin begins. So real, so meaningful.

I just realized that my choices are very ballad-y. His voice is just so perfect on them though!

It may be because I prefer to watch him perform the louder pop stuff. Barriers etc.. Oh, and Your Eyes Don’t Lie. 🙂

What are your favorite recorded songs? Or live ones? Let’s talk about David. 🙂
