Clay Aiken “Stop The Music…Play The Song”

01-29-17Banner

Sometimes a certain song just gets to you. Maybe it’s the melody that plays over and over in your mind. Other times it’s the arrangement, listening for the brass, the beat of the drums and the way the arranger weaves the strings to produce a certain emotion. To many the lyrics of the song are the most important. When the song conveys a story, it is hard to forget.

Clay Aiken sings one of my “gets you” songs. It has the most plays on my I-Tunes list and it always seems to make me feel good. I love the beautiful melody, the lush arrangement and the lyrics convey such love that you can’t help but feel good. From Clay’s album, On My Way Here, the song is titled Something About Us.

 

Three outstanding composers wrote Something About Us. Michael O’Brien, Scotty Wilbanks and Regie Hamm are all award winning musicians who are first known for their singing and then known as amazing song writers.

Michael said about the CD:

“Our goal was to create a work that would give couples an opportunity to have romantic interludes in a style reminiscent of Nat King Cole. It’s like Song of Solomon set to music. Romantic! Poetic! I believe Christians should be writing the most beautiful love songs ever.”

I don’t know how these young men got together to write Something About Us, but between their beautiful song and Clay Aiken’s soaring vocals and passion, this song “gets to me”.

Stop the music, play the song
We’ll dance together all night long
The spotlight glows, somehow it knows,
That there’s something about us
Something about us

People smile when they walk by
There’s too much magic to deny
A fool can see we’re meant to be
’cause there’s something about us,
something about us

The words on every poet’s tongue
Every love song ever sung
about us, it’s about us
From Romeo and Juliet,
to plays they haven’t written yet
It’s old and new, it’s a classic tale of two
of our perfectly perfect love

You can see it in our ways
in how we spend our nights and days
A crazy laugh, a photograph
There’s just something about
something about us

The words on every poet’s tongue
Every love song ever sung
about us, it’s about us
From Romeo and Juliet,
to plays they haven’t written yet
It’s old and new, it’s a classic tale of two
of our perfectly perfect love

So stop the music, play the song
And we’ll dance together all night long
We’ll reminisce of moments like this
Cause there’s something about us
something about us
yes, there something about us….

 

What is your “gets to you” song?
