Last week was so successful, we've got to try it again! Besides, I won't hear the last of it if we don't have a group orgasm over Broken Wings, right? Hee.

The date: Friday, October 27

The times: 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. Eastern

8:00 – 10:00 p.m. Central

7:00 – 9:00 p.m. Mountain

6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Pacific

The details: Beginning at the time listed above, load "Everything I Do (I Do It for You)" into your favorite media player. Put it on repeat and listen to the song for 15 minutes. While listening, post your comments about the song, Clay's voice, what the song does for you, anything related to the music, in this thread. After the 15 minutes are up, go to the next song on ATDW. I will provide a 5 minute warning before the next song should be started. We'll finish up the album this week with the addition of IYDKMBN.

The first song I will liketo discuss is All By Myself, a frequent situation lately.

OK, I follow the post and am the only one here.

I know I've seen this as a violin as the opening instrument...but I sure don't believe it. It sounds like a whistle to me!

Also...I heard the original tonight as I was working out. I've always liked Bryan Adams, but thought his voice wasn't right for this song. Clay's works for me with this, especially with this arrangement.

EID is such a movie song - but honest to goodness I don't remember hearing it before - and I bought Princes of Thieves....

He sounds so sweet and breathy...idealistic...this is such a first love song to me...

on the second listen it's sounding more celtic-ty to me...

Someone told me that its an oboe and she said an oboe sounds like a 'snake charmer" :lol:

I loved Bryan Adams version of this song from Robin Hood. The movie sucked with Kevin Costner. But we are not talking about movies here.

This song has grown on me. The longer it plays, the better I like it. I am not real crazy about the beginning, but then it picks up and catches me. Am I being to critical here. LOL

I actually love Bryan's Adams version of this song..the only thing good about the movie was the song. I of course woudln't throw clay out with the trash if he wanted to sing it to me but I think it's too soft. But the music is very pretty and it matches the 'era' I guess.

I do love the instrumentation and the celtic flavor....

Clay singing almost exclusively in his high range is something to get used to.

also the little airy quality...is also very different...

but when you just let yourself go and give in to the new sound...I think it is really very effective. That tonal quality he uses is very compatible to th celtic instrumentation.

play, I know what you mean though...it's a very interesting harmony.

Other notes from me: I personally love the Celtic flavor of this entire thing. This was one that -- yes, I know -- everyone thought was played to death. Well, yeah, it was...but he totally changed the songs IMO with the arrangement. Makes it totally new to me.

Arrow? what arrow? The most I remember about the movie was that Kevin Costner had the flattest, whitest ass I ever saw and it ruined the movie.

He needs to sing this on a storm-whipped Welsh coastline. Is the oboe the drawling thing carrying the tune in the instrumental part? See, I'm gettin' all technical on y'all!
