Music:

Has anyone ever made you feel like you were worthless or invisible? “My Name” is a song that lyrically illustrates the struggle in life. If you ever walked the streets of New York City, you may be surrounded by hundreds of people at a given moment; yet you may feel like you are all alone. This song speaks of the pain of being misunderstood and is an anthem to rise above the challenges. It is a positive message of standing up for yourself and your beliefs. To always follow your dreams and to never give up!

This song was recorded by the original Ivory Tower band lineup:

  • Mark Regula: Vocals, electric piano, synthesizers
  • Tony Novarro: Guitars, back vocals
  • Henry Kessler: Organ, back vocals
  • Kevin Joyce: Bass, back vocals
  • Sal DiAngelo: Drums

About 4 months after the initial rhythm tracks of this song was recorded, drummer and friend: Sal DiAngelo had died. He never lived to hear the final mixes of the songs he helped to record. Bass player: Kevin Joyce was so grieved by the loss of his friend and band partner, that a few months later he decided to give notice of his leaving the band…

My Name
Words & Music by: Johnny Jace & Mark Regula

Lost in a world where nobody knows you
And leading a life where nobody showed you
How to survive

Out on your own with no assistance
Facing the truth without resistance
Still I'm alive

They're gonna know My Name
It's always been the same
It's nothing fancy, it's nothing plain They're gonna know My Name
They're gonna feel my pain
I'm sick and tired of playing their game

Never had love, no one to hold me
Alone and confused, they never told me
I was someone

All of my life I've been rejected
Lost in the crowd, always neglected
Second to none

They're gonna know My Name
It's always been the same
It's nothin' fancy, it's nothin' plain They're gonna know My Name
They're gonna feel my pain
I'm sick and tired of playing their game

I can't take anymore...I can't take anymore
People listen to me and feel my pain
I won't take anymore...I won't take anymore
People listen to me and know My Name

(Guitar Lead )

They’re gonna know My Name They’re gonna feel my pain I’m sick and tired of playing their game…
