It's spring! If you live in the parts of the country where Daylight Savings Time returns every spring, then last night (unless you forgot), you made the clock spring forward and lost an hour of sleep. But you will be rewarded with an extra hour of daylight every evening for the next few months. I love this time of year! I love the extra hour of daylight at night because, as most people who know me are well aware, I am NOT a morning person! TIME is a commodity that I do not take lightly and I wish my TIME to be spent without artificial light as much as possible (I love to open the curtains, and windows if weather permits, and let the sun shine in to brighten the whole house). So this is the TIME of year that I celebrate. I may have suggested this topic in the past, but for today's Singalong, I propose the songs about TIME that have been meaningful to you. Whether or not the song mentions TIME with that exact word or it just references the concept, share your TIME-related song, an MP3 or YouTube version of it.
I can think of so many, that it is hard to choose. Yesterday I blogged about Phil Ochs and the movie about his life, so I think a Phil Ochs song would be most appropriate here. One of my favorites is "When I'm Gone" (link is to Allison Crowe version):
Oh, there's no place in this world where I'll belong, When I'm gone;
And I won't know the right from the wrong, When I'm gone;
And you won't find me singing on this song, When I'm gone;
So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here.
Good words of wisdom for us all, don't you think?
