Behind the scenes with @DavidArchie in Costa Rica (not really)

Yes, he is singing: “Ohhhh yaaaa, the scarlet trousers are baaaaack! Rejoice amigos, rejoice!!!!”

“Even this GLORIOUS waterfall cannot diminish the amazingness of these trousers”

Spot The David.

Beach VIP! Wooooot!

“Yo, dude, can I borrow those cool suspenders? … I forgot to pack my one belt”

“Oh, and the hat too… growing my hair out.”

“Hey, I loosened the top button… WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME???!!!!!”

“Muy caliente. Could really use that ice bucket challenge right about now.”

“No, you can’t have the red pants. I’ve packed them already. Step away from The Archuleta.”

“You hit me like a WRECKING BAAALLLLL!!!!”

“Back up for the shot??? No way, Jose… Oh, your name really is Jose? Cool.”

More pics here. (Thanks, Patty-Ann for the heads-up tweet!)




Aaaaaand two days later from David himself: 🙂

    Good stuff! Love the captions! Hilarious! I hope David gets to see this!

  4. peppertara says:

    This is all so good to see…and love your captions TOfan, haha! Beautiful voice on a lovely new snippet and good things up ahead, patience does pay off. 🙂 The Costa Rica pics are pretty awesome, what a back drop to that voice (and the red pants). This music video/project will be all kinds of goodness, can only imagine.

  5. missbianca says:

    What gorgeous photos! I hope David had fun doing this. Deb, your captions are perfect. I won’t tell you how long it took me to “Spot the David.” And there should be a poll with Red Pants, White Pants, and “I’m just waiting for the music.”

    Hugs to you on this autumn day.

    Hahaha!! Could not stop giggling at this! Hilarious 😃

  11. Jani says:

    Oh, this just makes me happy! Thanks, TOFan!

  12. Utahmom says:

    Well, hello there TOFan! Thank you, this was so fun! The wrecking ball comment literally made me lol. That would be quite a video! However, it took me so long to spot The David, that I just may have to turn in my fan card.

  13. refnaf says:

    “Oh, and the hat too… growing my hair out.”….. waaaaah
    This post literally had me loling!!!
    Lots of good stuff to look forward too!!!

  14. amb4da says:

    I keep coming back to listen to that song. May sound corny, but hearing David sing feels like “coming home” to something familiar and good, and always just puts everything right.
    He has so much to give musically, it’s always a remarkable surprise and gift.

  15. TOfan says:

    “coming home” … perfect way to put it, amb4da!

    … and I guess D’s excited for the new Zelda game 🙂

    … as thesellaturcica’s tags put it so well:

    #no #why #omg #stop it #stop it right now #YOU NERD OMG COME HERE #you are the worst #you are the prettiest princess #just #sing me video game theme songs with CONVICTION~~ for all eternity #i wish i could meet the fairy godmothers that found you nestled in a lambskin blanket beneath an ancient oak tree in an enchanted forest #found you and raised you in the old ways #and gifted you with music and smiles and laughter embued with magic #meet them and thank them for the light they helped bring into the world #david archuleta misses his home planet of sparkles and magic and music #david archuleta is always starring in the little mermaid au in his mind #the unicorn princeling

    And check out @rhiminee’s epic tribute HERE. 🙂

  16. Abrra says:

    Love this fun post and the fact that you came back, Deb 🙂

    My new phone alarm! His Zelda intro theme is too good to not use.
    From Abrra’s Candy Jar~ Ringtone’s for iPhone & Andriod Zelda Theme by DavidArchie's


  17. peppertara says:

    Abrra, love that you made an Mp3 of D’s Zelda theme. Laughed at David’s instagram, funny guy, glad he still has that natural, ‘only David’ kind of humour about him! Sounded good too, should have been longer. Great smiles and laughs from that one.
    Looking forward to hearing what we will of ‘Glorious’ tomorrow. Really do like the song and can imagine David’s voice on that, such a great song for him to sing (IMO).
    Thanks for all the little ‘goodies’ here TOfan!
    Oh…and Happy Birthday to abanana, gotta love that sidebar pic, lol.

  18. Grammyj says:

    I listened to David’s version of “Glorious” and his interview at the radio station link. It was fabulous hearing David on this song and of course it was glorious! He said there will be a new album next year. Also I got this fro FOD comments:
    got this from Meet the Mormons twitter:

    Tune in to FM100.3 today and listen to David Archuleta’s interview!

    And come back to the Meet the Mormons page today after 3:00 MST to download ‪#‎Glorious‬ for ‪#‎FREE‬!

  19. peppertara says:

    I listened to the song too (and the interview) and I absolutely love David singing this song! It is really beautiful, so sweet and David’s voice is…well yes….glorious! Really liked the song before I heard David sing it and now it is even more beautiful. Such sweet lyrics too and I think this is a song that anyone, of any belief system can relate too.
    Love David’s deeper tones and his magic and that velvety voice of his is still there, big time. Got a little choked up listening, so good to hear David sing this song and this one, well, he sings so sweetly, feltl his heart.
    Hmm…think I would have liked to have heard the first version too, with his Spanish accent, haha.
    Thanks Grammyj for the info, will definitely be downloading the song!!

  20. TOfan says:

    Thanks GrammyJ!!!!! I was away for the weekend & what a GLORIOUS gift to come back to!!!

    I’m with you, Pepp, would LOVE to hear the Spanish accented version! lol

    Here is the song on Vimeo:

  21. TOfan says:

    Ooo and the link to download & the interview (thanks, pastel!!!)

    • missbianca says:

      OOo, the interview! Thanky! I agree, the download was a delightful surprise gift. And @MeetTheMormons promised a music vid next week! Wonder if it will show David or only clips from the movie.

  22. refnaf says:

    Adore his voice on this song!!!!!!! My only complaint is that it is toooo short!!!!!

  23. TOfan says:

    Just noticed what D. posted on FB:

    (“scoop” ROFLol)

    Only 20 comments so far on his OS??? Wut???

  24. Anonymous says:

    loving the song but not a fan of tweets that start “hey davidarchie fans” and end with “do this” or “do that”… I’m a david fan not their fan, sorry had to get that out.

    will the video have david in it do you think? or trailer for the movie? super excited to see it!

  25. missbianca says:

    Missed you tonight at David’s Twitter party, Deb. Was fun, would have been even more fun with you. ❄️❄️❄️❄️😇😇😇😇

  26. Utahmom says:

    Finally had a chance to listen to the interview and song. Loved the interview, it made me feel a little nostalgic, reminding me of all those radio interviews David used to do, but there’s a difference now. David sounded much more confident and articulate–he’s grown up! Sort of. Obviously his inner child still comes out whenever Zelda is mentioned.
    I’ve always loved the lyrics in Glorious, so it was great to hear David singing them and his voice definitely elevated the music (imo). Perhaps a hint of greater things on the horizon.

  27. peppertara says:

    I’m rather addicted to ‘Glorious’. Listen to it on repeat on my way to work and coming home, so beautiful to listen to! Speaking of Glorious, how glorious is it that archieradio from Italy is up and running now. David’s music and only David’s music played all the time, pretty wonderful! Have to commend them for dedicating a radio station to David’s music! 🙂

  28. peppertara says:

    Forgot to say that on Archie Radio they sometimes play one of David’s covers and then will play the original, kind of nice. Do like this on-line station. 🙂

    • TOfan says:

      I’ll have to give it a listen, pepp… tbh, I had trouble wrapping my mind around the idea… “all David music all the time” sounds like all our iPods, lol. But playing the originals of his covers would be cool to hear.

      I hope he’s getting royalties for everything!

  29. peppertara says:

    I guess I just like the idea of radio (even on-line) radio playing all David’s music… a pretty cool thing…but yes, does sound like our IPods, etc. haha. You never know however, who might be tuning in. Don’t know about royalties, yes laws are different in Europe.
    Looking forward to a “Glorious” video today…..from what I’ve heard, should be today?

  30. GrammyJ says:

    Here you go!

    It’s GLORIOUS!!!!

    • tammi says:

      super excited!! 🙂

    • TOfan says:

      Thanks, GrammyJ! Love this comment on the video:

      “Am I the only one who literally cried cuz of seeing Archuleta? And him singing. And him in the studio. And him everything. The video itself. I don’t even know. Watching him after 2 years, I am just so happy. criesagain”

  31. peppertara says:

    Thanks GrammyJ….it really is a lovely video! So good to see David singing and recording at the microphone and that voice on this song…wonderful!

  32. Utahmom says:

    Gaaaaahhhh! That video! I’m hopelessly addicted to it! I liked the song at first, but now I totally LOVE it! Can’t get it out of my head now (and that’s just fine with me).

  33. TOfan says:

    This is hiLARous!

    My faves:

    “The overwhelming urge to put your hand on his mouth and say, “NO DAVID. YOU’RE GLORIOUS.”
    Wondering how you can let him know that if he can’t find where he belongs, he can always stay at your place.
    Wondering if it’s the Spirit or David that’s causing a swelling in your bosom.
    A sudden, unexpected desire to see “Meet the Mormons”. #whut
    Feeling certain that the piece David was called to play is the hot piece.”
