When You Say Nothing at All

“Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you,
say what you've got to say, and say it hot.”

- D. H. Lawrence

 (11 Sept 1885 - 02 Mar 1930)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today's Newsletter theme song has three primary versions - all of which I've saved for your viewing - but my own favorite is Alison's:

BONUS #1 - When You Say Nothing At All - Keith Whitley, 1988, with lyrics

BONUS #2 - When You Say Nothing At All - Alison Krauss, 1995

BONUS #3 - When You Say Nothing At All - Ronan Keating, 1999 


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/When_You_Say_Nothing_at_All:

"When You Say Nothing at All" is a country song written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz. It is among the best-known hit songs for three different performers: Keith Whitley, who took it to the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart on December 24, 1988; Alison Krauss, whose version became her first solo top-10 country hit in 1995; and Irish pop singer Ronan Keating, whose version was his first solo single and a chart-topper in the United Kingdom in 1999.

Overstreet and Schlitz came up with "When You Say Nothing at All" at the end of an otherwise unproductive day. Strumming a guitar, trying to write their next song, they were coming up empty. "As we tried to find another way to say nothing, we came up with the song," Overstreet later told author Ace Collins. They thought the song was OK, but nothing special.[1] When Keith Whitley heard it, he loved it, and was not going to let it get away.[1] Earlier, he had recorded another Overstreet-Schlitz composition that became a No. 1 hit for another artist - Randy Travis' "On the Other Hand." Whitley did not plan to let "When You Say Nothing at All" meet the same fate.[1][2]

RCA released "When You Say Nothing at All" as the follow-up single to the title song of Whitley's Don't Close Your Eyes album. The former song already had hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, his first chart-topper after three prior singles made the top 10.[3] "When You Say Nothing at All" entered the Hot Country Singles chart on September 17, 1988, at No. 61, and gradually rose to the top, where it stayed for two weeks at the end of the year.[1][2] It was the second of five consecutive chart-topping singles for Whitley, who did not live to see the last two, as he died on May 9, 1989 of alcohol poisoning.[3] "Keith did a great job singin' that song," co-composer Schlitz told author Tom Roland. "He truly sang it from the heart."[2] In 2004, Whitley's original was ranked 12th among CMT's 100 Greatest Love Songs.[4] It was sung by Sara Evans on the show.

When You Say Nothing at All

Written by
Paul Overstreet (b. 17 Mar 1955) and Don Schlitz
(b. 29 Aug 1952), 1988

Recorded by Alison Krauss (b. 23 July 1971), 1995
 

It's amazing how you can speak right through my heart
Without saying a word, you can light up the dark
Try as I may I can never explain
Why I hear when you don't say a thing

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best, when you say nothing at all

All day long I can hear people talking 'bout loud
But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Try as I may they can never define
What's being said between your heart and mine

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best, when you say nothing at all

The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
You say it best, when you say nothing at all
