Clay Aiken: Remembering Fantasy

Way back in 2004 Clay Aiken performed Earth, Wind and Fire's song "Fantasy" with some of the AI Season 3 finalists. All the talk today about Clay and RCA parting ways has reminded me of that performance. Especially the last 2 lines.

Earth, Wind & Fire - Fantasy lyrics

Every man has a place
In his heart there's a space
And the world can't erase his fantasies
Take a ride in the sky
On our ship fantasise
All your dreams will come true right away

And we will live together
Until the twelfth of never
Our voices will ring forever as one
Every thought is a dream
Rushing by in a stream
Bringing life to your kingdom of doing
Take a ride in the sky
On our ship fantasise
All your dreams will come true miles away

Our voices will ring together
Until the twelfth of never
We all will love together as one

Come to see victory
In a land called fantasy
Loving life a new degree
Bring your mind to everlasting liberty

As one

Come to see victory
In a land called fantasy
Loving life for you and me
To behold to your soul is ecstasy
You will find other kind
That has been in search of you
Many lives have brought you to
Recognise it's your life now in review

As you stay for the play
Fantasy has in store for you
A glowing light will see you through
It's your day shining day
All your dreams come true

As you glide in your stride
With the wind as you fly away
Give a smile from your lips and say
Are you free yes I'm free
And I'm on my way

I always love reliving the great performances that Clay has done. Fantasy was special because Clay was "free"!!!

To quote Kenny, I'm as happy as a kitten chasing a leaky cow.

Great blog, Truth. Yes, it looks like our guy is "free at last". I couldn't be happier or more hopeful. RCA did a dreadful job!

I agree with everyone! Isn't it funny how this was so many's favorite performance? It was the first time we ever saw him on AI just being free and loose! It makes me smile every time! Thanks for sharing!

I think he sang that when he appeared right after leaving 19M and now he is totally free! RCA and Clive weren't wise in their handling of Clay Aiken. He was just another commodity.

Great blog! Thnx for sharing the EW&F "Fantasy" lyrics in your blog, which I linked in mine. The last two lines are very appropriate this weekend.

Have an awesome week!

I'm so glad that the Clive monkey is off Clay's back. I'm so happy that he's finally FREE.
