    He sounds better than I do but that isn't saying much. His voice is strange.



  3. 3

    the original will always be the best



  4. 4

    That was great good for him



  5. 5

    if he had ANY talent at all, he'd write an original songs, instead of taking Vanessa's trash.



  7. 7

    his voice is amazing!!!!!!



  8. 8

    his timing is WAY off. he is singing so much slower than the piano is playing, it's really distracting. it sounds as if the vocals were added in later without him even hearing the piano.



  9. 9

    it's gonna be really sad when he comes out.



  10. 10

    but he has a great voice!



  11. 11

    terrible as usual. so gay you can hear it.



  12. 12

    loves it!



  13. 13

    I like it! Seems like a really good guy too



  14. 14

    Archie is so adorable! He has an amazing voice you really cant deny it unless your slightly retarded or have no taste in music. =)



  15. 15

    he sounds really good but he does a little too much during the song with his voice. the orig is def better.



  16. 16

    He also released a song called Zero Gravity on itunes. Its a dancey song. anyways I love ATM studio more than I thought I would.. which is weird…



  17. 17

    Not impressed. Can't take that "breathyness" of his voice. WRONG song for him.



  18. 18

    i don't really like archie that much, but this is b-e-a-utiful! good find perez!



  19. 19

    its a good cover of the song, the only thing is that the original is a little faster and he should've sang it that way, but all in all it was good.



  20. 20

    David is the man! LOVE it,



  21. 21

    amaaazing…cant stop listening to it



  22. 22

    Love it? Really? His voice is pleasant, but this doesn't move me.



  23. 23

    Wow it's so cute!
    .. Hmm.. Do we need more proof that he is gay now? :)



  24. 24

    Re: cherryblossom797
    maybe he'll do well on nickleodeon, not gonna make it in the real world.



  25. 25

    Re: uniquelyme93
    Actually he's singing exactly in time with it.. I think for some reason you've forgotten that song :)



  26. 26

    So good! He has a beautiful voice, and you would never think it could come out of him. When is he going to come out on the cover of RS?



  27. 27

    AMAZING
    this kid is incredible, hands down best teen star out there right now. he definitely has a voice. he's won me over



  28. 28

    YAY! Cute little Utah Mormon boy! Now since you know we aren't all bad, maybe you can stop hating.



  29. 29

    Re: PinkyNBrain

    hmm, do you have some kind of link to that?



  30. 30

    uhhhh, original please.



  31. 31

    Gross. Seriously? Does American Idol pay you to post this b.s.?



  32. 32

    Awww, I was like in junior high when the original came out. Loved the original but love this version too!! It sounds like he's sitting in the room with me, just singin' his little heart out. Heeee.



  33. 33

    Oh, and for the person who said it sounds like he's singing slower than the piano, my guess is he's playing the piano — I think I saw some youtube vid where he was playing this song when he was a little kid. So I bet he can hear the piano, lol :)



  34. 34

    Wow… The fact that people are calling this PHENOMENAL singer's coverr of a song (he writes his own music, plays piano and guitar too) "trash" and "bs" is BEYOND me. The timing is fine and so is his voice.



  35. 35

    For whoever said David should write his own stuff.. On his first album which he had to make just on days off during the 50 stop Idol tour, David has a total of 5 co-writes and one full write. He also co-wrote Zero Gravity (a tour fave and in the fan pack) and the song Fighting for You which I believe is being recorded by another Jive artist. 1000 Miles is just the first song he learned on piano before Idol and there is a old home video of David playing and singing it on YouTube. So his fans are very familiar with the song. David often does 1000 Miles as an encore at his concerts and that is why it is in the fan pack. It's for his fans.

    And David's voice is breathy because his one vocal cord never fully recovered from being paralyzed. So that vocal cord adds a texture to his voice and his breathing. I love the sound of his voice.



  36. 36

    He is absolutely AMAZING!!! I'm so proud to be his fan!!! :)



  37. 37

    Re: tessan – He has that breathyness because he has vocal paralysis!!!



  38. 38

    cutie..



  39. 39

    he is so gay. him and glambert are power bottoms, for sure!



  40. 40

    I cannot wait to go to Khloe WHOREdashian's birthday in Vegas on June 26!!!!



  41. 41

    he sounds scared, like he's trying to get it right.



  42. 42

    I crave the velvety quality of Archie's voice, it's amazing. He loves this song and is accompanying himself on the piano. He learned to play it when he was 14 and there is a you tube of it. I love how rich his voice sounds now and how it sound like he is right in the room with you singing. No studio enhancement here, just David unplugged. Beautiful.



  43. 43

    LOVE IT



  44. 44

    slow comment posts are slow… lol I posted a link to Zero Gravity but it went poof into nothingness… LOL



  45. 45

    that sucked



  46. 46

    His voice warms my heart.



  47. 47

    Um, Miss Violet, you might take a chill pill. Not everyone has to love your little angelboy. If you are one of his Idol fans, please don't bring that fantard shit here. You will just make it worse for your little man.



  48. 48

    okay juss heard his other new song Zero Gravity and that is the SHiiT right there. current club vibe and still age-appropriate. I am a David Archuleta fan, wow!



  49. 49

    meh. sounds like 10000 other male singers. nothing great



  50. 50

    Re: aamezi – It's awesome isnt it?



  51. 51

    He's an amazing artist! At some of his recent concerts he has been doing different covers such as 1000 miles and como la flor by selena! He has such a great voice as well! ahhhh



  52. 52

    This is complete HORSESHIT. I can't believe you liked this. Vanessa's is a million times better.



  53. 53

    Aw David! I love him. He's a total sweetheart.



  54. 54

    Re: Albertito – burrito



  55. 55

  56. 56

    borrring



  57. 57

    seeing this kids smile lines makes me feel better about the ones i sorta have, and this is nowhere as good as the original!



  58. 58

    I LOVE HIS COVER OF "COMO LA FLOR" BY SELENA. HE SHOULD SING IN SPANISH MORE OFTEN!



  59. 59

    I just love you lil archie!



  60. 60

    nowhere as good as the original!



  61. 61

  62. 62

    Re: JontavionBrownXIV – ewww are you 85? benjamin button shit

    omg this is amazing!!!!



  69. 69

    I love it! :)



  70. 70

    so gay and so cute!



  71. 71

    This site is now too gay for any normal person to view.



  72. 72

    arrangement sucks..



  73. 73

    god he's hideous. he's not that fantastic people. jesus. this song was cool in the 6th grade. not so much anymore. sorry.



  74. 74

    He's so fricken cute.



  75. 75

    i think he went out of timing on purpose to be different from vanessa carlton's version. i luvvv 1000 miles. my favorite song on karaoke.



  76. 76

    poor thing doesnt even know he's gay yet!!!!!



  77. 77

    He is just too damn cute!!!



  78. 78

    Re: titismack – lololololololol



  79. 79

    He doesn't add anything to the brilliant original, EPIC FAIL.



  80. 80

    has this little gay wad hit puberty yet? cute little voice, though.



  81. 81

    How come Perez never puts pressure on this guy to come out? Anyone who doesn't think this guy has been with dudes is delusional.



  82. 82

    This version is too slow, IMO.
    Nice vocals though, David!



  83. 83

    This song sucks no matter who is singing it.



  84. 84

    what's with all these comments about him being gay, or not ”knowing” he's gay? what is it to any of you, really, one way or the other? what is the sick need to slap the gay label on him and others - seems like a projection of one's own selfish, secret desire for him to be, so you think you could have a chance with him or something? that's what is so delusional… what does any of that have to do with him as an artist, and a singer? let the kid be - he sings the shit out of anything he wants - his original material and covers…

    he is no autotune wonder like 99.9 percent of the pop stars and rap/hip-hop people clogging up the charts - the kid can sing his ass off in studio and live like it's nobody's business… with one freaking vocal cord. not an excuse, it's a fucking fact. too many of you have become desensitized to what actual singers look and sound like in the age of autotune, and i'm glad to see true singers - who can fucking sing making a comeback in pop. david is leading the way. get used to it, because this dude is here to stay.



  85. 85

    Waiting for him to not look perpetually 12 years old is getting a little frustrating, but that voice is so rich, it's like it doesn't fit inside his tiny little body. He's cute now, but he's going to be drop dead gorgeous in a few years. Singer/Songwriter/Pianist ~ not to mention boy can move.



  86. 86

    I'm STUNNED by the negative comments! Are you kidding? David is so handsome, so talented and such a sweet soul! I'm shocked anyone can find anything negative to say about him!!! I'm speechless.



  87. 87

    Lots of deaf toned people here! Maybe the same people who chose Kris (Who?) instead of the amazing Adam Lambert as American Idol!

    Hello, people! Archuleta has a silky, divine voice! He is a very cute boy and has an undeniable fresh appeal and a huge talent! And I wish I could pinch his cheeks because he is soo adorable!

    His fans love when he performs this song live accompanying himself on the piano and this release is a true gift for them!

    Mr Perez, maybe you could post fan favorite Zero Gravity? Although Archuleta can do miracles and I actually like his ATM version, it´s a cheesy song, I can´t deny. But the fun pack also has ZG and this one is sooo better! Maybe another time? Pretty please? Thank You!

    And… F18, actually he DO write songs of his own. You are just misinformed, sweety! Read violet4ever comment, she knows better!



  88. 88

    I love this kid, but this version is BORING.



  89. 89

    this david is so sweet and beyond talented….i hope hollyweird doesn,t ruin him……perez. you listening?



  90. 90

    Re: Anca16
    Uh, Idol fan here, I know that. And for me it's very distracting.



  91. 91

    Re: perezita5
    He might want to stick with spanish then, cause I don't see a fan base here, unless you're 12. Maybe he'll give the Jonas brothers competition, but that's it.



  92. 92

    I like it. Thanks for posting.



  93. 93

    How did he not win AI???



  94. 94

    OMG, I can't belive Perez didn't doodle a d**k over the microphone.



  95. 95

    PRICKerez, stay away from him, you fucking pervert!



  96. 96

    okay, that picture of him is adorableeeeeeeee.



  97. 97

    This kid would be great in a Broadway production…he's got the range, & given a few years could develop into a major talent.



  98. 98

    I luv him! he's pretty goofy..heh.. :D



  99. 99

    OHHH PULEEEZ VANESSA IS SOOO MUCH BETTER. SOUNDS LIKE A FUCKIN FROG. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN ARRANGEMENT, VOCALS, ETC. BOOORING AND LAME!!!! HE HAS NO CAREER. DONE.



  100. 100

    I love 1000 miles, David's version is great. Yay, grats!
