    wow! David has such a great time in China! It was so nice that he got there a couple of days before he sang to get acclimated. Sang beautifully with a debut of Wait. Made a video and had a small gathering of fans for a M&G. He got to tour and EAT! Praying for a safe return. Oh Boy! A busy Nov and Dec coming up. So nice to be getting new videos and pictures every day. Exciting time in Archuletaville!

    3 covers and Crush, all on piano. I was reminded yet again of the “spiritual” look David takes on in facial expression and body language during “Angels.”

    Never saw 4 piano performances all in a row…wow! Piano man indeed!

    The 2nd from the bottom, side-profile, still photo is brimming over with peace and balance. Wonder if that was taken during the “Angel’s” performance.

    Ref – thanks for posting the “Silent Night” duo. I heard that same performance, believe it or not, in a Hilton hotel lobby just this week. Glad it is making the rounds again this year in certain hotel chains.

    Random, but came across the lyrics to “Don’t Tell Me” (which David wrote at age 11, apparently) … interesting to read them now 🙂 :

    DON’T TELL ME

    It seems that everybody doesn’t understand
    Don’t you believe ‘cause I won’t grow up too fast
    I’m just movin’ along and, and made my way
    I think it’s about time that I should have my say

    I’m just movin’ and groovin’
    My own life I’m choosin’
    No one stand in my way
    I do as I may
    Let me tell you

    Don’t tell me why
    I don’t need you to tell me who I am
    Don’t tell me
    When I can’t figure it out okay
    Don’t tell me why
    When I know that I shouldn’t do it
    Don’t tell me why
    I want to be me

    I don’t need you to tell me how to sing my song
    I don’t need you to be there yelling all night long
    It seems you always make it way too rough for me
    Why can’t I be what I want to be

    Oh yeah, yay

    I’m just movin’ and groovin’
    My own life I’m choosin’
    No one stand in my way
    I do as I may
    Oh yay
    And I’m just movin’ and groovin’
    My own life I’m choosin’
    No one stand in my way
    I do as I may

    Let me tell you

    Don’t tell me why
    I don’t need you to tell me who I am
    Don’t tell me
    When I can’t figure it out okay
    Don’t tell me why
    When I know that I shouldn’t do it
    Don’t tell me why
    I want to be me

    I’ll find my way
    Up onto the stage and take my place
    I know where I belong
    So I find my way
    Up onto the stage
    And I do my thing

    Let me tell you

    Don’t tell me why
    I don’t need you to tell me who I am
    Don’t tell me
    When I can’t figure it out okay
    Don’t tell me why
    When I know that I shouldn’t do it
    Don’ t tell me why
    I want to be me
    Yay, yay

      Well TOfan, if that is a reflection of his mindset today, then he is living his song right now….

      Don’t tell me why
      I want to be me

      I don’t need you to tell me who I am

      No one stand in my way
      I do as I may

      I know where I belong
      Up onto the stage

      Yeah, still waters run deep….the quiet rebel…don’t tread on me…and, Mr. @DavidArchie you just take your deep current of soulful, rockin’ vibes and quietly tread on up to the stage and awe us all. One step at a time, sweet David…I’m only human, I’m just a man, Help me believe in what I could be, And all that I am, Show me the stairway I have to climb, Lord for my sake, help me to take, One step at a time

    • refnaf says:

      Way cool TOfan> nice to re-listen to David’s voice at that age, what soul!!! The lyrics could def be his mantra right now!!!

    Hoping for time tomorrow to watch the latest videos.

    tofan, have always loved Don’t Tell Me. It fits him.

    kizzi, ♥ this……”Yeah, still waters run deep….the quiet rebel…don’t tread on me…and, Mr. @DavidArchie you just take your deep current of soulful, rockin’ vibes and quietly tread on up to the stage and awe us all.

    Still trying to figure out why the live “Wait” is’nt grabbing me…… first time for everything> first time I enjoy the studio version more than live… strang but true….guess I need to hear it live, teehee

    • TOfan says:

      Ref, I was thinking the same thing… there are so few songs of his that I enjoy more on record, Wait is one and actually Crush is another, lol, (although I LoVE some of his more slowed down acoustic versions of Crush).

      • abanana77 says:

        I actually like the live Wait better than the studio, but I completely agree with Crush, I like that studio version wayyyy better!

    • betsy says:

      I really like the recorded Wait as well. From the first time I heard it, it (and it’s drummish sounding self) reminded me of a Beach Boys song, or maybe Beach Boys sound. I can’t pinpoint it. Not a huge BB fan, just really like some of their songs. Maybe I’ll listen to a few to see where I got that impression.
      Strange, Deb, that you mentioned the original Crush. Ten minutes ago I watched the original video. I hadn’t seen that in maybe a year. It’s got 30 million views. 🙂

      • TOfan says:

        I’m a big BB fan, esp. their early stuff, amazing harmonies, layering of sounds, I think Brian Wilson’s a mad genius, lol. … 30 million views? yay! Still see sooo many tweets about people (non-diehard fans) still loving Crush. 🙂

    BTW, the OS has some good pics up….

  9. TOfan says:

    Some good pics on Ben Shepherd’s site too (thx. Janey for the find!), like these, from a sightseeing gondola ride (love Ben, hope he keeps getting solos, sooo talented):

    Love that the peeps in Asia love David too. Great supply of videos and David and piano, piano and David, acoustic David, pure joy. He is in fine form! How about that ‘Crazy’! He needs to record that one. What a treat and what a great time for David in HK!
    Didn’t know about the song ‘Don’t Tell Me’, sweet songwriter young David. David knew just the way things should be, even at such a young age.
    Just catching up on all these wonderful videos…love all the very lovely photos, comments. Gotta love his band too and the photo of super talented Ben, haha. Well, apparently they all had one fabulous time over there.
    Funny how some songs affect people differently…I love the acoustic ‘Wait’. Such passion, emotion and beautiful singing. It all comes from somewhere deep within him. Also love the recorded version however. Have a feeling this new video will be somewhat….umm….hypnotizing and mesmerizing ? 🙂
