  1. I think this song is quite different from the other songs in that cd. I love that cd and all the other tracks. There's not one song that I will skip.

  2. Every Thing I Don't Need was my favorite song on that album followed very closely by On My Way Here. I love the "lyrics" of the other songs on the album. As an extra bonus – I love the video footage and interviews of Clay and Kipper that you can watch on VEVO!! Behind the scenes of making the album. Those could use a few more hits.

  3. OMWH is my favorite Clay cd and Everything I Don’t Need is one of the best. I love Clay’s growl voice. Hot!!! 🙂

  4. Love this song and the cd! I listen to OMWH all the time and wish Clay would put out another one of new songs!

  5. Of course – everything Clay sings is done superbly. I do love his Everything I Don't Need CD version, but the rendition that is my very favorite is his sexy EIDN live performance during the October, 2008 Gala. He was really into it (*everythang*) and the fans screamed their appreciation throughout it all. Thanks for bringing back recollections from that time period. It was awesome!

  6. Love that album and the song Everything I don't need was one of my favorites. Thanks Musicfan xox

  7. I especially like 'Everything I Don't Need' because Clay gave it a kind of growl. Something he didn't do on other songs. I thought it should have gotten radio play. The whole album was great and I listen to it often.
