This song was going through my head the other day and I had to look it up on YouTube. Originally recorded by Chris Braide, then D-Side (in Ireland), Clay Aiken took this track to the charts shortly after he came in second on “American Idol” (which never made sense to me).

The energy of this video seems authentic; rumor has it people just showed up when they started recording the video. I noticed people with cameras and not with smartphones.

I miss the days before the attack of smartphones.

Fun fact: Clay’s version is the only version with the “Reach out… ” bridge, which adds quite a bit of energy to the latter half of the track.
