Who takes an ages-old Christmas carol and spins it three ways, three vibes, and into three masterpieces??? DAVID ARCHULETA, THAT’S WHO!!!!!
This is not a mere theory… I have EVIDENCE!!!
Exhibit A — Rock Stah LDB
D. unleashed this version on an unsuspecting fanbase at the 1st show of his MKOC Tour in Westbury. I was blessed to be there and one of those screaming in shock and … well, more shock… when he started banging that drum. You GO, David!!!
(did anyone else spontaneously punch their hands in the air at 3:45? 🙂 )
Exhibit B — Indie LDB
I LOVE this version… before Christmas I had it on repeat for a while, it’s hypnotic or something. And it almost doesn’t sound like him, if that makes sense.
Exhibit C — Latino LDB
This may very well be my favourite. Not sure why. Could it be the español? The Elder growl? That Latin pa rum pa pum pum?
