Clay Aiken “In My Life”

There are places I’ll remember

All my life, though some have changed

Some forever, not for better

Some have gone and some remain

All these places have their moments

With lovers and friends I still can recall

Some are dead and some are living

In my life, I’ve loved them all

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

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– 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.

The following YouTube is from the Chicago PBS Concert.  It was held on October 14, 2010

  1. The lyrics are beautiful, but I prefer Clay's rendition of the song, far better than the Beatles faster pace one. Thanks CANN for the memory and the video!

  2. Oh I sure do remember this concert! He asked us to come and we came! Had no idea what it was for, but what did WE care!!! It was a memorable evening and I am so glad I went!

  3. I remember driving down to Raleigh to watch Clay tape this PBS special. What an exciting time that was! Too bad it has never been rerun on a PBS fund raiser (that I know of). I did buy the DVD when the show was aired in my area of the country although not everything we saw at the taping is on the DVD.
