  1. This album has a diverse selection of music, which I can truly say, Clay does them all brilliantly! "Everything I Don't Need" is not only very well written but very well performed by OMC! When he sang this song at the Gala, I was mesmerized!

  2. Everything I Don’t Need seems like it would be a hard song to learn. It was sure a crowd pleaser. And an important song for the CD.

    I couldn’t find a BOLD for this last Friday. What happened to it?

    Thanks for an interesting post musicfan. You work so hard for us and you are appreciated. ❤️ UNCONDITIONAL love for you Clay.

  3. It didn’t stand out for me. It took me a minute to realize what song it was. And, I’m usually spot on with his music.

  4. I just love Clay's take on 'Everything I Don't Need'. That growl in his voice was unexpected and appreciated. This one of my favorite songs on the album, so unlike the usual selections.
