More on Mike Smith

My husband and I, when faced with choosing the music for our wedding 22 years ago, did not have a special "song." So we choose our song to be one we both liked that seemed appropriate for our first appearance as husband and wife at the wedding reception. We choose Dave Clark 5's "Because." Dave Clark was the main songwriter for the group, as well as its drummer, but it was keyboardist Mike Smith's voice heard singing lead. His enthusiasm for his music came through on those TV appearances I saw when I was a kid and more recently, when he filled in with the band on Late Night with David Letterman. "Rock and Roll Heaven" got another great one yesterday.

BECAUSE
The Dave Clark Five
(Dave Clark)

It's right that I should care about you
And try to make you happy when you're blue
It's right, it's right to feel the way I do
Because, because I love you

It's wrong to say I don't think of you
'Cause when you say these things
You know it makes me blue

Give me one kiss and I'll be happy
Just, just to be with you
Give me, give me, a chance to be near you
Because, because I love you

------ organ solo ------

Give me one kiss and I'll be happy
Just, just to be with you
Give me, give me, a chance to be near you
Because, because I love you
Because, because I love you
