Clay Aiken, Paul Young, or Hall & Oates
Daryl Hall and John Oates started working together in the early 1970’s and went on to become one of the most successful duos in rock history. They achieved their greatest fame in the late 1970 and the early 1980s. Their style was an interesting combination of rhythm and blues and rock and roll.
The duo had six #1 hits during their career. They last reached the pop-charts in 1990 and have slowly disappeared from the public view.
In 1980, the duo released an album called “Voices.” One of the popular songs on the album was titled Every Time You Go Away. Eleven years later, another young singer hit the pop music scene. From England, Paul Young was signed by CBS Records as a solo performer in 1982.
In 2006, Clay Aiken released his version of the song on his album, A Thousand Different Ways. Although it never made it on the radio, the song was a big hit on his tours.
In the summer of 2007, Clay performed “Every Time You Go Away” on his tour. He usually sang this great song after having a wonderful time talking and joking with his audience and back-up singers. The following video is a great example of good music and a good singer!!
