Musiqtone’s Video of the Week
from Musiqtone The Count

Last week David Archuleta’s “Something ‘Bout Love” music video was at number 1 on Musiqtone. The new voting cycle ends 20 October 2010 at 10 am ET. According to the confusing Top 12 Leaderboard, David Archuleta, who looks exactly like Carrie Underwood, is leading with *her* song, “Mama’s Song,” and David’s song, “Something ’bout Love,” is sung by Taylor Swift. Let’s vote for David Archuleta’s “Something ’bout Love,” and help Musiqtone out of this state of confusion.


Punk Rock Lovin’ Mama Reviews TOSOD
by Osarko ArchuletaFanScene.com
13 October 2010

Over on Archuleta Fan Scene, Osarko cracked me up with her rave review of TOSOD. She goes so far as to quote her own 2008 blog comments about David when he was a contestant on Idol. To prove that she loves David’s new album, she is giving away three copies of the CD. The giveaway promo ends on Thursday, October 21, at midnight PST.

Osarko says the winners will be randomly chosen, but you might have a better chance if your comment sounds punk-rockish.

    Thanks for the weekly wrap. My one stop shopping for everything DA! lol. Is it strange that even two years later when I watch an interview of David I’m grinning ear to ear?

  • minja | 2 | 18th October 2010 at 8:54 am |

    Thanks, Lyrix! Glad you continue to read Weekly Wrap. The other day I was reminded of that AI video where David ‘caught the shaving cream’ so it wouldn’t land on his pants. Remember that? Guru Pitka meets The Davids

    It still cracks me up after all this time. David is so funny sometimes! And has quick reflexes.

    Yep, Minja, That one is a classic!
