Take the David Archuleta cover song poll! Blackbird flyyyyyy

Source: Myrtle Beach FB

Some great new MB vids from hazeleyd71 (see below) have surfaced (can you tell I was just looking for an excuse to post BB and EWTRTW again? 🙂 ) … and it got me thinking about all the great covers David Archuleta has added to his repertoire lately.

So in part to find out which ones you guys have hit “replay” on the most — and also to take my mind off the fact that I’m a little too not over missing MB — I thought I’d post a poll on the subject.

(And I know WFM isn’t a cover but, as abanana77 pointed out, David’s MB renditions were so revitalized, it was almost like he was covering his own songs … and I’ve been replaying WFM just as much as the covers, as it turns out, so I’m posting that too, just ’cause).

    Every time I watch EWTRTW, including Michelle’s new vid up tonight, I notice something new. David really sent us a message with each of his covers, I think both musically and literally! Next time we are renting a new Archu-van and driving due south to listen in person!

    Gee, can I vote for all of them, lol. I listen to all of the above, quite repeatedly along with some others. Great new videos, love them! It’s true what Pastel said…you do seem to notice something new in each new video. What a treasure house we have from some great fans.
    I guess lately I have been listening a little more to EWTRTW and Blackbird…oh and still hooked on GGTT. Also adore WFM by the way, always have, always will. One of my all time faves and David sang his heart and soul out in MB.
    Still difficult to choose one though but I will. 🙂

    Oh and some great photos from the book signing on the last post and a sweet interview! David just seems so relaxed and happy at these interviews.

    thanks to suttygal, just updated the vids (I had Blackbird twice, lol … I like it that much! 😆 )

    as much as I love BB & EWTRTW, I’m still hung up on the acoustic GGTT. David gets such a soulful groove going in that version, you never want it to end.

    It depends on the day. 🙂 But EMTRTW pulls ahead to the front. Blackbird and Crazy are tied.
    We are so lucky. These songs are like a cache of riches. That we get to hear whenever we want.

    Awesome setlist at the Myrtle Beach concert, isn’t it!..I would say David is true to himself when he said he love songs that has substance or great messages that comes with it. He definitely takes great care in choosing covers for the audiences. songs like EWTRTW and BB are a good examples of who David is about….a caring human being 🙂
    I agree Deb, that GGTT truly showcased his soulful voice and the grooviness of it is addicting haha…Hope to hear more of that in the future!…Having said that, I still love listening to all his 3 albums + the AI collections…better yet….to see him LIVE !!:))

    Thanks for letting me have a space to delurk on the spur of the moment lol!

    audry, thank you for delurking! 🙂

    you’re so right, David does choose his covers with great care. I’m thinking back to The Riddle, and the great message of that song. During Idol, I remember David got some criticism from media (& even Simon) for choosing so many “message” songs… but when you look at the songs he picks, you realize some of the best –and timeless — songs (Imagine, EWTRTW, Blackbird, Sounds of Silence, WOTWTC … not to mention most of Bob Dylan, Neil Young etc.) are message songs.

    I voted for crazy because I listen to that one a lot. Crazy never gets old. And that version was so so good.

    But Blackbird and EWTRTW are a close second 🙂

  8. Laura says:

    I voted for Crazy too. He put so much emotion into that version.

  9. TOfan says:

    aww, love seeing tweets like these!
    @aciolove @DavidArchie Your concert was awesome last night! Never heard you sing before but you were amazing 🙂 … I have had your songs stuck in my head since your concert in Myrtle Beach. Already bought your albums. Love them! #newfan

    HI! So how am I suppose to choose! LOL! Well everyday I have a different favorite and today it was Blackbird. I kept listening to the lyrics and thinking about David’s life. He’s the Blackbird… that was broken (vocal paralysis) and is now taking off and flying…learning to see, etc. He’s free. It is so personal. I just had to vote for it. He does a beautiful job. “you were only waiting for this moment to arrive… ….to be free”

    Of course I get sucked into the EWTRTW vortex every day! and Crazy is CRAZY!!!!!! so how in the heck am I suppose to choose! Anyway…. thanks for the great post! and the vids! 😀

    We all know it’s so hard to pick a favorite ’cause David throws himself into every song! However, since I’ve been challenged to pick just one, I have to go with ‘Everybody Wants to Rule the World’. Having been blessed to see him live at MB, I was caught off guard when he sang those first lyrics “Welcome to your life..there’s no turning back”…what can I say?! I’m such a cry baby when it comes to David but I offer no excuses..he just has that effect on me..lol.. Anyway, he just reached out & grabbed me with that song & I still haven’t gotten over it! It was definitely one of those “what just happened” moments again for me! I agree with Pastel..he was speaking to us through those covers. I felt every word~every thought, David. ♥
