Something 'Bout Love

Album: The Other Side of Down (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single from 2008 American Idol runner-up David Archuleta's sophomore studio album. The song, which was co-written by Archuleta, finds him singing about the ups and downs of being in love. He told On The Red Carpet during the 2010 Capitol Fourth celebration in Washington DC. "It's a more uptempo song for the summer. Just very radio friendly. Even though there are the hard times, and the difficult challenges, there's still something about love that's worth it."

  • Jessica from Logan, UtDavid's sophomore album is called "The Other Side of Down," and was released in October 2010. I'd highly reccomend it. In my opinion it's even better than his debut album, even though I loved his debut album, too!


    In the music video for this song, David's younger brother is shown in the basketball scene towards the beginning. He's the tall one with the black hair & grey t-shirt.
  • Beck from San Diego, CaI normally don't listen to the likes of David Archuleta but I have to admit I like this song.
