  1. please, someone, make Archuletta go away.

    Especially after his desecration of "Imagine." Talk about destroying the impact of a song. The genius of it was it's simplicity. It doesn't need a Celinificaton.

  2. Bravo to David. It is a nice song, his vocals are good.

  3. I luved his version of "Imagine" which was not remotely a "Celinification." Perhaps you have him confused with someone else.

    On the other hand, this song is trite crap. He's got a lot of vocal and emotional maturing to do but it's a desecration of his natural, very real voice to make him sound like just another cheap imitation of the cheap-to-start-with Justine Timberlake, et al.

  4. Come on Leland, I love your posts but his vocals are so much better than Timbersnake. Justin just screeches thru his songs, David works the vocals.

  5. egads, Archuletta's song is actually cringe-worthy. I wonder if his father helped him choose this entirely derivative and over-produced thing. just awful, awful

  7. Archuleta should really just stick to slow ballads. They suit him better.

  8. So Leland posts comments about pop culture. And Bedwell posts comments about politics.

    Is that how it works?

  10. Yes, everyone must watch "The Fame" by Lady Gaga!

  12. Archuleta is like Pee Wee Herman, you either love him or hate him.

    Personally, I'd like to give him his blankie, a cup of hot cocoa, and wait for him to hit 30. :-)

  13. you can say what you want about me but don't speak badly about Archie

    Posted by: daveynyc | Aug 6, 2008 10:53:55 AM

  14. I think Archie's song is quite good and certainly better than those dreadful ballads that they normally foist on the Idols to sing. The song and vocals remind me alot of Darren Hayes (Savage Garden).
