Lava bombs of love for @DavidArchie

Full disclosure: I meant to post this earlier but got consumed by all the beautiful, supportive comments on David’s post today. I have blisters from liking so many of them.

My heart is full from seeing so much well-deserved love flowing his way.

Reading his post, I couldn’t be more proud to be a fan of his. I’m pretty sure, if you’re here, you feel the same way.

Over the years, he’s been so honest about his therapy and struggles with self-esteem, but when I read the line, “I’ve tried for almost 20 years to try and change myself,” my heart shattered. Inside, I’m sure we were all screaming, “YOU DON’T NEED TO CHANGE A THING, DAVID!!!!”

And I hope that sharing these very private struggles publicly is an important step in helping him fully love and accept everything about himself. I also hope he feels a weight’s been lifted off his shoulders.

What I read many times in so many comments was that his words helped people feel seen and may even help save lives. I hope that gives him strength to carry on, live his truth and find all the happiness he so deserves.

I just wish we were all at a concert of his tonight so we could cheer the roof off for him.

How about you guys?? Feel free to share. Or not. {{{{{{group hug}}}}}

Warning: May cause sleep deprivation

This song has literally been stuck in my head since it came out. And now THIS???!!!

Dang you, Archuleta!!!!

j/k zero complaints!!

Anyone else find this video kind of hypnotizing? Mesmerizing?

Seriously though, between the song, the fluffy pillows that look like clouds, and the cool lighting… and, well, David… it put me in some sort of trance. Just me?? mkay 🙂

The melatonin on the cereal though *DEADDDDDDDDD *…. pure genius.

And any video that opens with this image does need to come with a warning label… I mean, COME ON!!!

SO WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK??*

*only critique, should have not worn … the socks 😉

p.s.

Merch ideas for Team Archie:

Archie-branded sleep-aids… sweet but not too sweet:

Pillows as soft and silky as David’s voice:

Puzzles guaranteed to make you want to finish them!

Who else is losin’ sleep over @DavidArchie’s #LosinSleep??

Confession: I didn’t download Losin’ Sleep until this morning because I knew if I heard it at midnight, I’d be up all night. 🙂

But NOW!!! Whoah!!! NOT what I was expecting from the snippet at all, in a good way!! Download/stream etc. HERE.

It is SOOOO catchy! The ear-worminess!! The bop-iosity!! The impulse to make up my own wordsssss!!!

The snippet melody line has been stuck in my head since I first heard it. And the lyrics are simultaneously hilarious and poignant and so relatable. (Is this the first time we’ve heard props to melatonin in a song?? I believe so.)

Speaking of belieb 🙂 … the song reminds me a bit of my fellow Canuck but (sorry Beebs) with better vocals… it also reminds me of this cover David did a while back….

But the feeling and the soul and THAT VOICE!!!… all David!!

How about you guys??!! Thoughts? Random impressions?? Questions??*

p.s., if you haven’t seen D’s duet with Natasha Bedingfield on Tiktok yet, run don’t walk!!! aMAZing!!!

@davidarchie

#duet with @natashabedingfield Wanted to share a little story of how Natasha Bedingfield gave me the motivation I needed to be an artist. 🙏

♬ original sound – Natasha Bedingfield

Lyrics:

I been losing sleep over you
Nothing works for me no matter what I do
You been living rent-free in my head
Now I’m tossing, turning in my queen-sized bed
Maybe I was in too deep, that’s on me
You used to be the one that gave me peace, but
Now I’m losing sleep over you
Mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh

Another night, another week
Red eyes staring at a screen
All the stupid scrolling and it’s gonna help me close it (??)
And I know it, yeah, I know
Turn off the phone and hit the melatonin
Turn the lights off on my nightstand, yeah, I’m hoping
That I can get some rest
But I won’t hold my breath

I been losing sleep over you
Nothing works for me no matter what I do
You been living rent-free in my head
Now I’m tossing, turning in my queen-sized bed
Maybe I was in too deep, that’s on me
You used to be the one that gave me peace, but
Now I’m losing sleep over you
Mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh

Now I’m losing my mind, my time
Stuck here thinking maybe girl you really were
Right to leave me, now it’s eating my alive
Hate being alone and too much melatonin
You won’t hit me back ’cause we ain’t even friend-zoning
Wish I could get some rest (yeah)
But I won’t hold my breath

I been losing sleep over you
Nothing works for me no matter what I do
You been living rent-free in my head
Now I’m tossing, turning in my queen-sized bed
Maybe I was in too deep, that’s on me
You used to be the one that gave me peace, but
Now I’m losing sleep over you
Mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh

Turn off the phone and hit the melatonin
Turn the lights off on my nightstand, yeah, I’m hoping
That I can get some rest
But I won’t hold my breath

I been losing my sleep over you
I been losing sleep over you

*My Q: Why not a King bed, dude?

Sneak preview of #LosinSleep … ish

Sorry, guys, I could not resist! * hides* … seriously though, how excited are weeeeeee???????!!!!!!!

Posted in Utter nonsense | Tagged , , , | 10 Comments

Why is @DavidArchie trying to keeeeel us all??!!

Seriously though, we have all been so kind to him, even buying that Build-A-Bear song back in the day WHEN WE DON’T EVEN HAVE CHILDREN!!!

We’ve been nothing but nice and he chooses to hit us with THIS??

To slay us with an acoustic version of an already awesome track… where he dips and doodles his voice through the stratosphere until we just can’t take much more.

In a room with acoustics that sound like they were designed just for him… I’m guessing clouds for walls and butterfly wings on the ceiling.

Completely unfair, all of it!!! And he has the nerve to get a snazzy new haircut for the occasion?! hmmmpfttt the sheer nerve!!!

brb need to go replay to see just how cruel it all is…..

HOW AWESOME IS THIS??!! DISCUSS!!!

“Is it okay if I say this?”

YESSSSS!!!!!!

I knew Be That For You would be good but it’s sooooooooo goood!!!!

Love the groovy dancy vibe… his voice ‘natch… the cool base line… that little stop before the chorus drives up again (I love that in songs, no idea why haha)

And that cover photo!!! Perfection!!! (Although they might’ve talked him into losing the jacket for a partial wet T-shirt look… throw the fans a CRUMB, David!!! hahaha (did I just say that out loud??)

So what do you guys think?????!!!!

p.s.

All the links to buy/stream etc. are here.

p.p.s.

Lyrics! Also awesome!!

“Be That For You”

Is it ok if I say this?
Cause every time I look in your eyes
I… feel like I’m wasting
The perfect moment
To say I’m all in

You’ve got my heart
Right in your hands
I wanna stay here forever
Please let me know
What it would take
To be your forever

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be the one that’s always on your mind
Be the someone that you feel like wasting time with
I’ll do anything and everything I can
Just to be that
Just to be that
Can I be that for ya?

When your head’s underwater
You’re sinking in can’t seem to catch your breath (Eh)

I’ll be there beside you
Lifting you up
When it’s too much
I’ll be that place
When you need to hide
I’ll bring you the shelter
When you’re unsure
I’ll be your steady
Come on tell me

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be the one that’s always on your mind
Be the someone that you feel like wasting time with
I’ll do anything and everything I can
Just to be that
Just to be that
Can I be that for ya?
Can I be that for ya?

You’ve got my heart right in your hands
I wanna stay here forever
Please let me know what it would take
To be your forever

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be the one that’s always on your mind
Be the someone that you feel like wasting time with
I’ll do anything and everything I can
Just to be that
Just to be that

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be the one that’s always on your mind
Be the someone that you feel like wasting time with
I’ll do anything and everything I can
Just to be that
Just to be that
Can I be that for ya?

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be that for ya

David’s Easter Archupalooza!!!!

Whoah, anyone else having trouble keeping up? lol

We all know how David makes our Christmases the holly jolliest… and now he’s doing the same for Easter!!

First, his beautiful collab with Vocal Point (and love the baritone’s voice who shares the lead with him… Mr. Yaphet Bustos (who’s from Chile btw!)….

Then the AMAZINGLY AWESOME I Know He Lives release & videoooooo

Then the incredibly moving and uplifting StageIt concert last night… I mean, besides the soulful, reverent songs we had such classic David moments as not pushing the “live” button so that he sang the whole first song thinking the show had started (*dyingggg *), Clark Kentchuleta on & off with the cool specs, Archuleap over the cords…

And in between songs, David sharing some of his questions and feelings about times when he struggles to feel closer to God… WHO else could pack so much amazingness into under an hour (which always zooms by so fast it literally feels like 5 mins).

And so many new peeps in the chat before hand, from France & other countries… very cool!!! What were your favourite moments??

Then this bust-out-the-charisma performance with the Millennial Choirs that felt like it was right out of a movie musical (David comes in about 33 mins in & is prominently featured throughout the cool behind-the-scenes clips near the end… thx. Janey for the heads up!!)

And in between all of those ArchuRiches, we have:

This awesome insta live… which already has 24K+ views because I guess we missed him! lol

David winning Best Male Artist at the Stagie Awards! Here’s his acceptance speech with A+++ coiffure #teamfluffeh:

Viral TikToks like this one:

Riffing on insta live with Peter Collins (David comes in around 39:44)

oh, and NEW TOUR DATES for 2022!!! (Which, sadly, don’t include my home town but hey, next time, right? RIGHT??!!! lol.

Screen Shot 2021-04-03 at 12.00.01 PM

I have loved this song since the first time we got a sneak peek many moons ago … so prayers have been answered that David FINALLY decided to release it!

(Didn’t someone wise say good things come to those who wait? 😉 )

I love this for so many reasons… but I’ll limit to 3, lol:

1. How simple the accompaniment and production are… it has that organic one-take feel… almost like I’m hearing it live!

2. David’s mad crazy good soulful vocals, like inSANE!!

3. The song itself, love the R&B vibe & the message and just everything about it… gets under my skin… in a good way!
