Clay Aiken Goes to the Movies


ON MY WAY HERE - Tracks from Clay Aiken's new CD harmonize with romantic, historical, and social themes from movies and television. Graphic by Amazing_CA.

Pass the Popcorn, Please!

Eons ago when I was a kid, Saturday afternoon meant a bus ride downtown and 2-3 hours filled with the latest Hollywood magic playing in our local movie theatre. Cost was minimal for the bus token, picture show, and buttered popped. Definitely eons ago!

Today I didn't even have to leave my computer to grab a couple of movie clips set to two favorite tracks from Clay Aiken's latest CD, On My Way Here.

The first, a photo/video montage by SueReu, is dedicated to the turbulent love affair between Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler in the 1939 classic "Gone with the Wind." Clay's "Everything I Don't Need" is the perfect accompaniment to scenes by Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable.

Grab some popcorn, and enjoy this look back at the famous film set in the South during the Civil War and Reconstruction. Afterwards, you may just want to rent the whole DVD. You can read more about GWTW here.


Scarlett - You're Everything I Don't Need

Posted by NeverLetGo414, the second montage features scenes from Titanic, a monumental film made a decade ago. Directed by James Cameron, the story centers on a ficitional romantic tale of a rich girl and a poor boy who meet on the ship's ill-fated voyage.

Leads in the 1997 film are Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. A full summary can be read here.


Titanic - As Long As We're Here

For a mini-concert, stream the five OMWH video performances by Clay at AOL Music. The popular Clay Aiken Sessions include "Ashes," "Everything I Don't Need," "Where I Draw the Line," "On My Way Here," and "Something About Us."

Have a great weekend, and pass some more of that buttered popcorn!

Clay Aiken can sing anything he wants, and I'll be the first in line to listen.

Thanks for the 'home movie' idea - guess I better go get some popcorn!!

What a fun way to share Clay Aiken music! The Gone With The Wind montage was really good. On My Way Here fits so many situations--it's a wonderful song.

What a great combination! One of my favorite movies of all time, "Gone With The Wind", combined with one of my favorite songs from Clay Aiken, "Everything I Don't Need"! Wonderful job with the montage, thank you for posting it! That song is just perfect for those clips.

Loved hearing Clay Aiken singing to scenes from Gone with the Wind--would be great to have a song of his in the movies and better yet, have him act as well in the movie!

With all the movie vids being made by Clay Aiken fans I am sure it won't be long before someone will use him on a future movie track. Had my popcorn and enjoyed myself watching these vis. thanks Caro.

katy said...

Whooo! Wouldn't it be cool to see Clay Aiken on the big screen?

Excellent montages! I hope that maybe someday, some smart movie-maker will include a song by Clay Aiken in a blockbuster movie.

Caro,
You got me there! When I read the title, I thought Clay will be starring in a movie. He's more than qualified to do one and should sing all the soundtracks as well. That'll be a real treat! Thanks for the montages. Love them all especially the Titanic.

If Clay ever hits the big screen, the movie theaters will be in for a big surprise.

"As Long As We're Here" worked perfectly with the Titanic clips. It really does need to be used in a movie.

Clay Aiken should be headlining in a movie - he is so talented.

Neat idea-although Youtube on dialup is painfully slow! Take care and God bless.
