Timeless Melodies

Nov 20/19. Koerner Hall, Benefit Concert for Peacebuilders Canada, featuring David Clayton-Thomas, with special guest Genevieve Marentette.

For many of us, the tunes that we listened to so deeply in our youth, stay with us deep in the crevices of our hearts, minds and memories no matter how old we get. Whenever we hear them again, especially performed live by the musicians who created those sounds to begin with, it takes us back, our early hopes and dreams resurface briefly, we feel young all over again.

Listening to, singing along, with David Clayton-Thomas tonight in the magnificent Koerner Hall, was just one such occasion. He finished his performance with one of his best from the past –You’ve Made Me So Very Happy.

I lost at love before
Got mad and closed the door
But you said try just once more
I chose you for the one
Now I'm having so much fun
You treated me so kind,
I'm about to lose my mind
You made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life

The others were untrue,
But when it came to lovin' you
I'd spend my whole life with you
'Cause you came and you took control
You touched my very soul
You always showed me that
Loving you was where it's at
You made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life

Thank you baby, yeah yeah
I love you so much, it seems
That you're even in my dreams I can hear
Baby, I hear you calling me
I'm so in love with you
All I ever want to do is
Thank you, baby
Thank you, baby
You made me so very happy
I'm so glad you came into my life

You made me so very happy
You made me so, so very happy baby
I'm so glad you
Came into my life
Mmmm, I want to thank you, girl
Every day of my life
I wanna thank you
You made me so very happy
Oh, I wanna spend my life thanking you
(Thank you baby, thank you baby)
