David Archuleta – Song Covers! What song should be next?

25 January 2010



Can you imagine David Archuleta singing this song?    With a little change in the arrangement and maybe a lyric or two, I would love to hear David’s version of this song.  Do you have a song cover in mind? 

While David is in Los Angeles writing with Emanuel Kiriakiou for his next album,  let’s make a list of songs we would love to hear him sing.  It can be love songs, inspirational  or anything you want.   The sky’s the limit!

Waiting for his next album to be finished will be so exciting. His new album will give us that inside look into his personality and the feelings he wishes to express in his music.  

David’s covers are better than the originals so let’s explore what he might do with some other songs, and tell us what song you would like him to cover!  I have so many in mind but the following is one with such great lyrics!  What do you think?  Tell us your choices!

Plain White T’s – “Hey There Delilah”


Hey there Delilah
What’s it like in New York City
I’m a thousand miles away
But girl tonight you look so pretty
Yes you do
Times Square can’t shine as bright as you
I swear it’s true

Hey there Delilah
don’t you worry about the distance
I’m right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
close your eyes
listen to my voice it’s my disguise
I’m by your side

Ohhh, it’s what you do to mee
Oh, it’s what you do to me (x2)
What you do to me

Hey there Delilah
I know times are gettin hard
but just believe me girl
some day I’ll pay the bills with this guitar
we’ll have it good
we’ll have the life we knew we would
My word is good

Hey there Delilah
I’ve got so much left to say,
if every simple song i wrote to you
would take your breath away
I’d write it all.
Even more in love with me you’d fall
We’d have it all

Ohhh, it’s what you do to me
Oh, it’s what you do to me (x2)

A thousand miles seems pretty far
but they’ve got planes and trains and cars
I’d walk to you if I had no other way.
Our friends would all make fun of us
and we’ll just laugh along because
we know that none of them have felt this way
Delilah I con promise you
that by the time that we get through
the world will never ever be the same
and you’re to blame

Hey there Delilah
you be good and don’t you miss me
two more years and you’ll be done with school
and I’ll be making history like I do
You know it’s all because of you
We can do whatever we want to
Hey there Delilah here’s to you,
this one’s for you

Ohhh, it’s what you do to me
Oh, it’s what you do to me (x2)
What you do to me
Oh oh oh oh etc
