Clay Aiken Is Out Spelunking!

While Clay is out “spelunking”, we need to try a few things… so…

Lets take an un-official poll of our favorite Clay Aiken songs…

Pick your #1 favorite song from each album and leave your answer as a comment on this blog.  I will keep a total and report on Thursday.  I know that many of you read this via your e-mail, but we would love to have your opinion too.  So stop by so we can get your input too.  The more responses, the more fun it will be.

May I just say how much I appreciate your support of CANN.  If there is some topic you would like me to research and write about, please let me know.  This has been a long break and like most of you, I can’t wait to report some exciting news “soon”.

  1. Goodness, It's so hard to choose and I could feel differently tomorrow but:
    MOAM – I survived you
    MCWL – Merry Christmas with Love
    ATDW – A Thousand Days
    OMWH – Where I draw the line
    TNT – It's Impossible

  2. This is tough, there are so many from each album that are wonderful. MOAM, I'm going to say "Touch". ATDW, I love Broken Wings. OMWH, I love them all,I'll say "Falling" and "Forget I Ever Knew You". MCWL, Don't Save It All for Christmas Day and Clay's version Of "OHoly Night". Tried and True, Love Unchained Melody,Clay's version and "Its Only Make Believe". Hope I didn't ramble too much.

  3. Hi Musicfan,
    I like The way,
    Don't save it all for Christmas day
    Because you loved me
    Everything I don't need
    Suspicious mind
    Can not wait the result LOL

  4. Here are my favorites.

    Measure of a Man: When You Say You Love Me.

    Merry Christmas With Love: Don't Save It All for Christmas Day

    A Thousand Different Ways: Lover All Alone

    On My Way Here: Something About Us

    Tried and True: You Don't Have to Say You Love Me

    And just for good measure—

    All Is Well (EP): All Is Well

    MCWL – OHN
    ATDW – LNM
    OMWH – TRM
    TnT – IOMB

    I didn't know this song existed in iTunes, will have to check it out, thanks – It’s In Everyone of Us (iTunes Exclusive)

  6. I have no idea what "spelunking" is but have fun Clay.
    You want me to choose between songs?? This could be very difficult, hmm…
    Well I'll say (though I love them all) Invisible from MOAM because it was the first Clay song I heard and was the hook that pulled me in, as it were.
    From MCWL I'll say the song MCWL.
    Hmm, well from ATDW I've probably most listened to ATD so I'll say that.
    OMWH is maybe either EIDN (because it's so different than his other songs) or LAA (because it's beautiful) I can't chose between them, I'm sorry.
    My T&T favourite is definitely UM, I love that song…
    So Invisible, MCWL, ATD, EIDN/LAA and UM.
    Thanks for keeping me up to date on all things Clay 🙂

  7. Measure of a Man
    #1-Measure Of A Man

  8. This is really difficult. Clay is the only artist that I never have to skip any songs on a CD. I love them all…some more than others, but there isn't one song I dislike… So this is really hard to do:
    1. MOAM…..When You Say You Love Me
    2. MCWL…..O Holy Night
    3. ATDW…..Here You Come Again
    4. OMWH…..Sacrificial Love/The Real Me
    5. T&T………It's Impossible
    On the EP All Is Well…I absolutely love All Is Well…. (I know it doesn't count..but just had to say it)

  9. Wow, okay this is tough because I love all his songs! But here it goes:


    2.MCWL~Mary Did You Know

    3.ATDW~Because You Loved Me

    4.OMWH~On My Way Here

    5.T&T~Unchained Melody

    🙂 Excited for the results, this is a fun poll

  10. I wrote this list down earlier, but waited to see what format others used. Here are my picks …………

    MOAM – Measure of a Man because the words remind me of Clay.
    MCWL – O Holy Night it is simply beautiful, especially the concert version.
    ATDW – Here You Come Again with Clay's interpretation the words are more meaningful and soothing.
    OMWH – Everything I Don't Need brings out Clay's macho self.
    T&T – Suspicious Minds never can get enough of Clay singing it. And Unchained Melody with that beautiful and longing for love ending. Love them both equally.

  11. Measure of a Man I Survived You
    Merry Christmas with Love Mary did you Know
    ATDW Everything I have
    OMWH It's in Every one of Us
    TnT Unchained Melody
