Acoustic @DavidArchie may be my favourite

I feel we have not talked enough about how amazing this acoustic Riu Riu Chiu is.

It’s now two months after Christmas and I’m STILL listening to it. SOOOOOO good.

I think acoustic David may be my favouriteโ€ฆ and Spanish David is, well, muy bien, si? ๐Ÿ˜‰ (That’s it for my Spanish btw)

How he can take the same song and do it so many different ways, each of which is amazing in its own way (hello, Little Drummer Boy), baffles meโ€ฆ in a good way.

And some of this one sounds as though he’s just riffing, making it up as he goes along, gliding along a winding lazy river of pure molten goldโ€ฆ MORE, I need MOOOOOORE!!!!!

Take a listen and hear for yourself:

So what do you guys think?

heh heh”


I checked iTunes and Amazon and you can’t seem to order RRC separately (and it’s no longer available on Pledge Music ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ), you can, however, still get The Prayer on iTunes HERE and on Amazon HERE.
btw, people actually took the time to write reviews for The Prayer on Amazon. Here are a couple (I’ve left out an ALL CAPS one because it frightened me, tbh):

One of the best songs I have heard in a long time. David Archuleta is a natural and master at his art. He is the real deal.

    I love Acoustic David too and Riu Riu Chiu is wonderful. Still listen to it often as well as The Prayer….gorgeous. Love the comments you brought over and glad that you are celebrating RRC!
    David is amazing with his renditions, acoustically (and otherwise). An acoustic album from him…..well I think it would be pretty wonderful. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is the first time I have heard that acoustic Riu Riu Chiu, and I have to say it is absolutely beautiful. If I could tell David anything, it would be to go the acoustic route. Seriously, is there any other singer out there who can sing a song like David does without having all kinds of bells and whistles to distract the listener. He is brilliant. I get very frustrated when I see and hear mediocre singers, having people sing their praises and yet a phenomenal talent like David has to look for a producer to work with. If they had any sense they would be breaking down his door to get the chance to work with him. I think I just started my bucket list, I want to attend an acoustic concert starring David. That’s David Archuleta of course.

    Hogging a little off topic space here to spread the word about a fan dinner before David’s Boise concert. More fans coming to little ol’ Boise than I first thought (YAY!), so we are gathering. If you are coming to Boise for what I consider to be the Morrison Center event of the season, please join us! David’s fans are the best!

    Boise’s Outback Steakhouse
    4:30 pm, in the Banquet Room
    Overland Park Shopping Center
    7189 W. Overland Road

    An RSVP is needed for the restaurant set up. You can respond here, on Twitter (@TaterZen), at FOD in comments, or on Facebook at FansofDavid Archuleta.

    Acoustic David is a treat, always. I love his latest duet with The Prayer. Divine!

    Best wishes and wishing I was there to all attending Boise. Special shout out to TaterZen.

    interesting article about building a successful tour, from a booking agent that used to work for the agency David is with:

    Part 1:

    Part 2:

    believe it or not, it actually looks like he’s already following the steps they recommend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Woo to the Mega Whoo. A clip of David singing “Imagine” on AI just now. Contestant Trent Harmon heard David when he was a kid in 2008 and said he sang “Imagine” constantly after that. David inspired him to be on Idol. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Sounds like it was a fireside, not a concert. But can’t help wishing we’d had a hidden microphone.
