Clay Aiken - Only You

This is my wish for you: smiles when sadness intrudes,comfort on difficult days,rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, friendships to brighten your being, beauty for your eyes to see, faith so that you can believe.


Only You - Clay Aiken

"Best of" albums were something I looked forward to in days gone by.
This was how I could afford best songs by favourite singers heard on the radio. To me it's an excellent way of introducing great music to new listeners today.

In this case that would be for Clay Aiken, there are so many people that have no idea what Clay has accomplished since the American Idol 2 days. The chances of hearing him on the radio have been pretty slim!

Now is a great opportunity to introduce Clay's fantastic voice all over again!

Somehow I ended up at YouTube last night and found these super videos from 2004 NAT.
This tour received NAT (for Not a Tour) for a title because there wasn't any official name for it! Always resourceful Clay fans called it that, and it stuck. Later it was also known as the Solo tour.

Enjoy these, I sure did !!!

We'll start with Fields of Gold--a short audio clip..love this one! The video follows.

Clay Aiken-The Winner

Photobucket

"As you glide in your stride
With the wind as you fly away
Give a smile from your lips and say
Are you free yes I'm free
Now I'm on my way."



This weekend calls for "Fantasy".
Clay sang this Earth, Wind & Fire song on a guest appearance to American Idol in 2004.

The lyrics are so appropriate!
Clay Aiken's contract with RCA has ended and he's free!

Clay Aiken is setting the record straight: the former American Idol has parted ways with RCA Records, Aiken's rep has confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE.

"We were unable to come to terms in a recent contract negotiation, and decided that it was best to move on," the rep, Cindi Berger, said Friday.


It's Celebration time--Change is a good thing!

My blogs on Clay The Man are a diary of sorts. They represent some of the things I enjoy, trivial chat most of the time! Do I ever think of anything other than Clay? Of course I do, you don't want to hear about them though!!

This week has been rather exciting with the highlight being President Obama's visit to Canada with Prime Minister Harper. I was glued to the TV set all of yesterday.

Looking at YouTube this morning I found tons of videos on the event.
Here is a five part series of the whole broadcast. Awesome!!

Academy Award nominations for 2008

'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button'
'Frost/Nixon'
'Milk'
'The Reader'
'Slumdog Millionaire'


I admit, I know nothing about the current movies other than recognition of a few of the titles from advertising. I copied these titles from
CNN.com/SPECIALS/2009/academy awards.

My time to watch is when they come to TV.
My popcorn is better and costs less too.

That said, I do often watch the show..to watch the Red Carpet for the fashion parade.


Photobucket

Now--when one of these movie songs is being sung by Clay Aiken, fashion watching will take second place.

Until that time comes, I pass the time with pictures and videos of Clay.

Clay Aiken Diamond Impressions

Welcome!

Photobucket

Some Days are Diamond Some Days are Stone
John Denver




So what has a blog for Clay Aiken got to do with John Denver and diamonds?
To me they all represent lasting love.
Besides that, the song came up on my playlist the other day,
and it stuck in my head!

When did the association between diamonds and love begin?

It was in the 15th century. The Archduke Maximilian of Austria presented the first diamond engagement ring to Mary of Burgundy and that marked the historic connection between love and diamonds. After that, in the late 17th century, the Russian Czar, Peter the Great, gave Catherine I a crown of 2,500 hundred diamonds. Then, in the 18th century, Louis XIV of France showered diamonds on his very young wife, Marie Antoinette.

The tradition of offering a diamond engagement ring with a proposal is common around the world.

It is love and deep commitment that a diamond represents.

A diamond is a very romantic stone, very pure in its beauty, very reflective of the light around it, and it sparkles with a life that is not necessarily seen in other precious gems. The connotations transcend love to the deepest, brightest and most eternal of connections between two people.

Why do they say that a diamond is forever?

It makes sense if you consider the strength of a diamond. The diamond is a perfect 10 -- the most durable precious gem you can find. It proves that there is a reason to equate a love meant to endure forever with a magnificent precious stone that also has enduring qualities superior to all other gems.

Clay drought? Maybe so, but as you can see he's never far away from me. He's always here on my computer to sing to me, and smile as only he can smile :) There's lots of Clay friends to visit around the web, just recently I started tweeting at Twitter!

It's fun, an easy learning curve (important to me, LOL) and a new way to spread Clay news and anything/anyone else you are interested in. It's the newest kind of social media--that's what a program about it on TV said.

Genuine and rare,
The one that we call friendship
Has worth beyond compare."

So, there you are..the connection!!

May your day be all diamonds and no stones!
