On my way home last night — listening to mp3s from @Jonerz’ amazing Myrtle Beach videos — it struck me that most of the David Archuleta songs I listen to on my iPod are from his live shows.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the studio recordings too, but I’m willing to put up with a few screams* and static to get that extra jolt of passion and asdlfkdjfkadfjla; that David puts into every live performance. I think one of the reasons I love the MoTab CD so much is that it’s really the only professionally recorded live show of his that we have … so far.
But some fans have told me they may watch live videos but almost never listen to his live stuff on their iPods… it’s studio-recorded or nothing for them.
So I’m curious… what’s your preference? … And why? Please share!
*Confession: I sometimes actually love hearing the screaming and chanting before he comes on stage or the “I LOOOVE YOU, DAVID!” screeches… esp. from guys, lol … and knowing that the “Go, David!” shoutout in this vid is someone I know! *cough*thelovelybetsy*cough*
