Got The Time Tick-Tick-Tickin’ In My Head…

Monday evening I had a post ready to go, but when I came back to it Tuesday morning to post it, it seemed a little more mean-spirited than what I’d intended, so I shelved it and ran one of my “reserve posts” in it’s place.

But it also threw off my schedule for the week… I’ve got a couple of posts in the works, but none are ready.

That got me thinking that I could write up something new, but I’d need time…Where would I find the time?

That’s when I decided to do another one of my playlists, this time featuring songs that include “Time” in the title.

There are a heck of a lot of songs with “Time” in the title.  Even after I took out the lesser songs and songs with compound words like “Summertime”, “Sometime” or “Anytime”, I had a bunch. I then cut out songs that had “Times” in it (i.e. “Where Have All The Good Times Gone”), and I ended up with 44 songs.

Here they are, in alphabetical order.  Feel free to add anything I forgot or just didn’t know about.

  1. There’s “This Time” by Bryan Adams (and thanks for making me cite a Bryan Adams song).

    I think you’ll need even more “time” to find songs with “day” in the title.

  2. Cleanup Time – John Lennon
    Time in a Bottle – Jim Croce.
    If you are into more modern techno music there is “What Time is Love?” KLF AKA: The Timelords when they did a Tribute song to Doctor Who called “Doctorin’ The TARDIS”.

    of course there may be many many more as you probably already know. Just as there are tons of songs with Love in the title.

    • Huh… I thought I had Cleanup Time in the list. I may have inadvertently deleted it in my rush to get the list below 100 songs. :-)

      I looooooooove “Doctorin’ The TARDIS”; I’ll have to check out “What Time Is Love?”

  3. If I could recommend one I’d say “Good Time” by the Counting Crows, not a single or one that got radio play to my knowledge but a solid song nonetheless…

  4. Twine Time — Alvin Cash and the Crawlers
    Monkey Time — Major Lance
    Mashed Potato Time — Dee Dee Sharp
    Time Won’t Let Me — The Outsiders
    Night Time Is the Right Time — Ray Charles
    Pony Time — Chubby Checker
    It’s Madison Time — Ray Bryant Combo
