This is the Night
Aldo Nova/Gary Burr/Chris Braide

When the world wasn't upside down, I could take all the time I had
But I'm not going to wait when a moment can vanish so fast

Cause every kiss is a kiss you can never get back

Lift me up in your eyes
If you told me that is what Heaven is, well, you'd be right
I've been waiting forever for this
This is the night

When the answer to all my dreams is as close as a touch away
Why am I here holding back what I'm trying to say?

Lift me up in your eyes
If you told me that is what Heaven is, well, you'd be right
Hold me close to your heart
I would go with you to the ends of the Earth and we'll fly
I've been waiting forever for this
This is the night

This is the night where we capture forever and our tomorrows begin
After tonight, we will never be lonely again

Lift me up in your eyes
If you told me that is what Heaven is, well, you'd be right
Hold me close to your heart
I would go with you to the ends of the Earth and we'll fly
I've been waiting forever for this
This is the night
ALWAYS AND FOREVER-UNCONDITIONALLY!!!

Invisible
Desmond Child/Andreas Carlsson/Chris Braide

Whatcha’ doin’ tonight
I wish I could be a fly on your wall
Are you really alone
Who's stealin' your dreams
Why can't I bring you into my life
What would it take to make you see that I'm alive

[Chorus]

If I was invisible
Then I could just watch you in your room
If I was invincible
I'd make you mine tonight
If hearts were unbreakable
Then I could just tell you where I stand
I would be the smartest man
If I was invisible
(Wait..I already am)

Saw your face in the crowd
I call out your name
You don't hear a sound
I keep tracing your steps
Each move that you make
Wish I could read what goes through your mind
Wish you could touch me with the colors of your life

[Chorus]

If I was invisible
Then I could just watch you in your room
If I was invincible
I'd make you mine tonight
If hearts were unbreakable
Then I can just tell you where I stand
I would be the smartest man
If I was invisible
(Wait..I already am)

I reach out
But you don't even see me
Even when I'm scream out
Baby, you don't hear me
I am nothing without you
Just a shadow passing through...

[Repeat Chorus]

If I was invisible...
If I was invisible...
If I was invisible...
If I was invisible...
If I was invisible...
If I was invisible...
ALWAYS AND FOREVER-UNCONDITIONALLY!!!

Solitaire
Neil Sedaka

There was a man, a lonely man
Who lost his love through his indifference
A heart that cared, that went unshared
Until it died in his silence

And Solitaire's the only game in town
And every road that takes him, takes him down
And by himself, it's easy to pretend
He'll never love again

And keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love it always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He's playing Solitaire

Another day, a lonely day
So much to say that goes unspoken
And through the night, his sleepless nights
His eyes are closed, his heart is broken

And Solitaire's the only game in town
And every road that takes him, takes him down
And by himself it's easy to pretend
She's coming back again

And keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love it always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He's playing Solitaire

A little hope, goes up in smoke
Just how it goes, goes without saying
Solitaaaaaire.....
And by himself it's easy to pretend
He'll never love again
Ohhh

And keeping to himself he plays the game
Without her love it always ends the same
While life goes on around him everywhere
He's playing Solitaire
Solitaire, solitaire

Hello
I posted this in Got Clay in the Fox Cities cellcert, but thought it may be suited for here too.

Maybe most of you know this, but in my constant desire to inform people the back stories to things, I thought I'd explain some of the cover songs' background Clay is singing.
(For those of you who don't know me, I'm a huge James Taylor and U2 fan. The OCDers have heard all about my 20-year love affair with Bono and the boys, so I won't bore you with it now.
I'm just so excited Clay's singing a U2 song because I've always felt his voice was perfect for it -- he has that same passion and emotion that Bono has, plus the booming pipes. I could go on and on...and did)

BTW, WTSHNN is the song that U2 played at the February 2002 Super Bowl Half-Time Show where they scrolled down all the victims' names from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
U2 also did that during their "Elevation Tour" post-9/11 (2001/2002). (FYI - A DVD of their Elevation Tour concert in Boston is available, and is WONDERFUL!!!)

"Where the Streets Have No Name" is on the landmark "The Joshua Tree" album, which won the Grammy for Best Album of the Year for 1987. The song's video is very famous, generally regarded as one of the best performance videos ever. U2 was on top of a building in downtown LA singing the song, and such a crowd gathered that the police had to come shut it down. It was a very Beatle-esque concept, like "Get Back" on the top of the Abbey Road studio.

OK, here's what Bono said in 1987 about "Where the Streets Have No Name":

'Where the Streets Have No Name' is more like the U2 of old than any of the other songs on the LP, because it’s a sketch - I was just trying to sketch a location, maybe a spiritual location, maybe a romantic location. I was trying to sketch a feeling. I often feel very claustrophic in a city, a feeling of wanting to break out of that city and a feeling of wanting to go somewhere where the values of the city and the values of our society don’t hold you down.
‘An interesting story that someone told me once is that in Belfast, by what street someone lives on you can tell not only their religion but tell how much money they’re making - literally by which side of the road they live on, because the further up the hill the more expensive the houses become. You can almost tell what the people are earning by the name of the street they live on and what side ot that street they live on. That said something to me, and so I started writing about a place where the streets have no name....’"

The song fits Clay, doesn't it?
And man, does he look like a big-time rock star opening up the show with it!!!
Ooooohhh, baby!!

Here's some James Taylor background. BTW, Taylor is a Massachusetts native. He later made whatever Carolina his home (Thus, Carolina In My Mind.)

James Taylor's "Sweet Baby James" was written for his nephew, who was named for him. It's a lullaby. I used to sing it to my sons when I rocked them.

James Taylor's "Fire and Rain" is based on a personal account staying in an institution/facility. I can't remember the real story as to why he was in there. He had some substance abuse problems as a young man, but I'm not sure if that was it, or if he had some mental breakdown. Anyway, this young woman, Suzanne, who he became friends with, killed herself.
So the line "Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you" refers to her funeral. And that line, "But I always thought that I'd see you again" is about finding out she died.
I know, deep. But that's still one of the most poignant songs ever written.
That line about "Flying Machines in pieces on the ground" refers to his first band, James Taylor and The Flying Machine.

"You've Got a Friend" is actually written by Carole King, one of the legendary songwriters of the '60s and '70s. Taylor recorded it for his "Sweet Baby James" follow-up, "Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon." Reportedly, they were more than "friends." But have since been close friends.

The other songs, "Smiling Face" and "How Sweet It Is" are pretty self-explanatory.

Y'all know that he was married to Carly Simon and they have two children, Ben and Sally, who are also singers. You can check out Ben's music at Amazon if you want to hear him. He's also done some music with dad and mom. I'm not all that familiar with Sally's stuff.

Oh, and more trivia. When "Sweet Baby James" came out in 1970, James Taylor was the first pop/rock star to make the cover of Time Magazine. It was a huge deal. It also ushered in the singer/songwriter era.


And as for "Rosanna," one of the Toto members wrote it for his then-girlfriend, actress Rosanna Arquette. She is also reportedly the subject for Peter Gabriel's song "In Your Eyes." So what is with this chick that she had two famous songs written about her?
"Rosanna" was the Best Record of the Year at the Grammies back in '81 or '82, I believe.

CHeers,
Lynn aka The Wordy One

Thank you Lynn...most interesting!  I had heard about the origin of the song Streets With No Name, but forgot that it was used as a tribute to the 9/11 victims.  I went back and read the lyrics with that knowledge and they became even more meaningful.

And, I think I remember reading that the video for the song may have even been part of the inspiration for Clay's Invisible video; where a performance is occurring and people are drawn to the music.  Interesting!

As far as Toto, I happen to recall that they also had a song called Pamela. Why couldn't Clay have chosen that one?!? 

:mrgreen:

Thank you for sharing your expertise!

All of the Songs in the James Taylor Tribute happen to be on one of  James Taylor's CDs called The Best of James Taylor.  Also has Carolina In My Mind!

I have liked his songs, but never owned one of his albums.   I went out and bought this one today!

Fool
writers unknown

Somewhere out there I know
That your waiting for me
I'm still believin
Dreamin that one day you'll be

Everybody tells me
I've still got so much to learn
They don't seem to understand

It's a fool that falls in love
It still gets lonely
Dreams are not enough
Or so they tell me

Someday, someway, somehow
You will find your way to me
Then you will see
That fool is me Oh no baby

Every moment I live without you
Breaks my heart
There's no one better
So why must we still be apart

No one ever told me you'd be the
Last one to learn
Gotta make you understand

It's a fool that falls in love
It still gets lonely
Dreams are never enough
Or so they tell me
Someday, someway, somehow
You will find your way to me

I believe that love
Plays a game with my heart
And there's nothing I can do
Oh no no no

But I can feel it too

It's a fool that falls in love
It still gets lonely
Dreams are never enough
Or so they tell me
Someday, someway, somehow

You will find your way to me
And you will see
That fool is me

It was added at the concert before Musikfest so only performed twice - NH and PA so far.

Original is by George Michael and Arethra Franklin.


I Knew You Were Waiting For Me
by George Michael

(Aretha)
Like a warrior that fights
And win the battle
I know the taste of victory

Though I went through some nights
Consumed by the shadows
Ans was crippled emotionally

(George)
Somehow I made it through the heartache, yes I did
I escaped
I found my way out of the darkness, kept my faith
Kept my faith

(Chorus)
And the river was deep I didn't falter
When the mountain was high
I still believed
When the valley was low
It didn't stop me
I knew you were waiting
I knew you were waiting for me

(Aretha)
With an endless desire
I kept on searching
Sure in time our eyes would meet

And like the bridge is on fire
The hurt is over
One touch and you set me free

(George)
I don't regret a single moment, no I don't
Looking back, when I think of all those disappointments
I just laugh, I just laugh

(Chorus)

So we were drawn together through destiny
I know this love we share was meant to be

I knew you were waiting
I knew you were waiting
I knew you were waiting for me

Does anyone know- is Clay pretty well sticking to the set that Pamela posted orginally? It sounds like he is mixing it up a little -depending on where he is performing. I read somewhere that he performed "Without You" at one performance. I hope that he does at the IL State Fair, as that is one of my favorite songs- the concert version that is. I love the version on Kim Locke's CD, but not as well as the concert version.  This just goes to show the versatility of Clay- he has a large repetoire that he can pull from and not sing the very same set every single night. It also says a lot for his backup singers and band.

Looking forward to the 13th when I get to see Clay a fourth time! My friends are teasing me that I am stalking the man. My husband just laughs and says if you are going to see Clay, I am going to the fair for the car races. Hmmm.....I may want to see those too! LOL

Char, I believe he sang Without You with Quiana when the tour was in Charleston SC because that was Quiana's hometown.  He has a short set he is doing at the State Fairs, it starts with the Disney video.  He has added Still the One and the new song,  I Knew You Would Wait. 

I need to add those to the list!

Have fun at your concert!
