Currently Listening to David Archuleta’s ‘Something ‘Bout Love’


** Check out David Archuleta’s new single Something ‘Bout Love! Now available for download on iTunes or Amazon. **

To be perfectly honest, I really didn’t much like David Archuleta’s new single ‘Something ‘Bout Love’ the first time I heard it. No particular reason – it definitely sounded a lot poppier, dancier and synth-ier than I was used to for an Archuleta song – but just didn’t think there was anything special to it. Listened a couple of times, and then promptly forgot all about it.

And then a funny thing happened … I had this annoying tune stuck in my head that wouldn’t budge. Kept on humming “Whoa oh oh oh.. (mumble mumble)” which reeallly annoyed the hell out of me, especially since I had no idea which song had got stuck in my head. [p.s. This happened to me before – I hated Lady Gaga’s Alejandro, but I kept on humming that annoying chorus (Ale-ale-alejandro!!!) for days afterwards.] Anyway, to make a long story short, yep, it was ‘Something ‘Bout Love’.

So, in other words, maybe this will be David’s second Top 40 hit (after Crush)? Really annoying hooks that involuntarily get embedded in one’s subconscious tend to become hits, and this one seems to be just commercial & non-threatening enough to do it. Besides, for some odd reason, the song sounds better and better (and less annoying) the more I listen to it, go figure! And is it just me or do you also hear a hint of ‘Zero Gravity’ and a bit of the synth-pop sound of Owl City’s Adam Young?

“There’s somethin’ ’bout love
That breaks your heart
Whoa oh oh oh
It sets you free”

Let’s repeat that to infinity, shall we? Yeah, I surrender to the magical powers of hook-songwriters – so, yes, I’ve plunked down the $1.29 for the ‘Something ‘Bout Love’ iTunes track, and I’m placing it on repeat until someone yells at me to turn it down 😉 (p.s. the iTunes version has a surprise ending!)

Listen to “Something ‘Bout Love” (Radio Edit) Vodpod videos no longer available.

    i recommend everyone go snatch a copy off itunes – the ending is killer, and the dance groove david is rocking in this song is s i c k. dude is singing, really singing his butt off to, which is something most pop singers can’t do anymore w/o autotune. this song is s i c k.
