DA David Archuleta Song of the Week

8 November 2010



Songs I was captivated by the first snippet of this song on David Archuleta’s Central Park video. We fans already knew the guy can sing! This song on his new sophomore pop album, The Other Side of Down, proves his vocal ability. It has a broad range, challenging David’s upper and lower registers. It’s an up­tempo song sung with passion and dynamism. David handles the high key, and even key changes, with a fluidity that makes the song resonate.

“Something ’bout Love”
by David Archuleta

Something bout Love cover artwork, July 2010. Photo credit: Jive Records.“Hang on, hang in, for the ride of your life,” Archuleta croons with clenched fists. The slow-motion shots nicely capture the romantic vibe of the track, and Archuleta makes for a compelling pop presence.” So says Billboard.com of David’s music video for SBL. The “dreamy” cover photo, shown here, for the single got almost as much fan praise as the song. Neon Limelight wrote, “The simplistic — and very blue — single cover shows the 19-year-old singer/songwriter with his arms crossed and staring into the camera (and deep into your soul!) with his gorgeous hazel peepers. Now that’s something to love.”
