In My Life – Verse Three
But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life, I love you more
“In My Life” is a song by The Beatles written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The song originated with Lennon, and while McCartney contributed to the final version, the extent of his contribution is in dispute. Released on the 1965 album, Rubber Soul, it is ranked 23rd on the Rolling Stone article “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”, and placed second on CBC’s 50 Tracks. Mojo magazine named it the best song of all time in 2000.
On March 12, 2010, Clay Aiken sang this beautiful song on his Tried & True Live PBS Special. On the night of the recording, he dedicated the song to all the teachers that have been a part of his life.
Clay also featured this amazing song as he toured throughout the US on his Tried and True Tour.
The following video was taken at the Keswick Theatre in Glenside, Pennsylvania.
I really recommend this video.
There are two parts: a bit of “chatty” Clay at the beginning and then it highlights his beautiful voice.
I would love to hear what you think!
