 The finale of Dancing With The Stars is tonight!
Who do you think will win?

^On another related note, I think Clay's version of "It's Z^Only Make Believe" would be great to see a couple or more do a quickstep on the dancing show. Do you agree or disagree?

I Appreciate You, Clay

Thank You Myspace Comments
While this is a week or so early for Thanksgiving, I thought it was appropriate at this time.
Thank you Clay (and to Team Clay)for all that you do for us fans. For the concerts, the meet and greets or bus line handshakes, for  the blogs, tweets and facebook posts; and so much more. Thank you most of all for sharing yourself with us, and for giving to kids in need through UNICEF and the National Inclusion Project. After all the negative posts on the OFC forum; you deserve to know how much that I and others still love and appreciate you, whether you blog or not .
       I'll probably post sometimes between now& Thanksgiving, but just in case;
Happy Thanksgiving to Clay and all his family and friends, to Team Clay and all of the Clay Nation.
I am also very thankful for all of my readers!

Clay's Songs For The Lonely and Broken Hearted

Broken Heart Myspace Comments
           Clay's love songs are great and powerful, but so are his sad songs. He seems to have no problem emotionally connecting to the songs that he sings and relating those to the listener in his voice, whatever mood the song is about.  On the last post, Clay's Love songs were featured; on this post are the songs for the single and unattached or who have had recent breakups. If you ar or have experienced breakups, singleness and/or loneliness, you'l identify with the following songs^;
Lover All Alone
Sacrificial Love 

You Don't Have To Say You Love Me

Run To Me

Lonely No More (Clay wrote this with David Foster)

I Survived You(a curse word is in this one-they aren't usually found in a Clay Aiken song)

Lover All Alone

Without You

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do


This isn't all the Sad Songs, but this is the last one for today, appropriately.

No More Sad Songs

^ Many of these songs were suggested by members of the Facebook group, Claynation (Cathie).
