The Music of Time

#1

Post by The Sultan of SoWhat » Fri Jan 18, 2019 5:38 pm

How about compiling a list of songs that are time-related?

I'll start it off with 4 songs:

"Time on My Hands"--an obvious way to begin
"About a Quarter to Nine," written by Al Dubin and Harry Warren and popularized by Al Jolson
"Round Midnight," by Thelonious Monk
"Time in a bottle," by Jim Croce

------

With a nod to A Dance to the Music of Time, the 12-volume cycle of novels by Anthony Powell

I. Memento Mori





(I know Yinz already posted this song; I thought it fitting to include them here playing it when they were themselves older.)


II. Instrumental

OK, a bit of a stretch on this one.

III. Contemporary

Ah yes, Leroy Anderson's "Syncopated Clock"--I was waiting to post that myself.

"Three O'clock in the Morning"--a very oldie.

If we move from a clock to a calendar--"A Hundred Years From Today."

"(I've Had) The Time of My Life" from "Dirty Dancing"

Unfortunately that's minute as in little, originally "The Little Dog's Waltz" and composed at the suggestion of Freddy C's (no, not that one) squeeze at the time of making something where the right hand's part simulated a dog chasing its tail.

Meanwhile...

IV. Alexa, Talk Nerdy To Me





V. How Have These Not Been Posted Already?





VI. Moar Moldy Oldies




And...oh, you know its theme song already. Just enjoy a bit of Dr Blackadder instead.
