As we count the hours until daylight saving time, consider all the songs about time

NewsAs we count the hours until daylight saving time, consider all the songs about time

“Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” (Chicago 1969)?

Probably not, and especially not after dspanylight sspanving time starts at 2 a.m. March 12.

Although, technically, we know it’ll start at 2 a.m., which will actually become 3 a.m., without those extra 3,600 seconds. Who counts seconds anyway?

What to know about daylight saving timeWhen does the time chspannge? Do we lose or gspanin spann hour?

Future of daylight saving time:Yespanr-round chspannge depends on federspanl vote

It’s a “Sign of the Times” (Harry Styles 2017) that we’re still waiting on Congress to act on Florida residents’ desire to permanently extend dspanylight sspanving time from eight months of the year to all year long.

At least we’re not alone in the waiting room of limbo as “Time Stand Still.” (Rush 1987).

Six other states have passed their own legislation to stop changing the clocks twice a year.

Thirty others are considering it. Maybe they’re just waiting to see if or when Congress ever moves.

Cher, Huey Lewis and the News on turning back time

Cher “If I Could Turn Back Time” (1989) and Huey Lewis and the News “Back in Time” (1985) obviously didn’t get the message because everyone knows you spring forward and fall back.

Maybe Congress just has “Too Much Time On My Hands” (Styx 1981).

But “Time Is Running Out” (Muse 2003) on our patience. We may not have to run around the house to manually change all our “Clocks” (Coldplay 2004), but losing an hour of sleep every year has gotten really, really old. And no,  “Remember The Time” (Michael Jackson 1991) in the fall when we gain an extra hour of shut-eye doesn’t make up the spring drowsiness.

Jennifer Warnes, Cyndi Lauper had some time-related hits

And as every parent knows, “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” (Jennifer Warnes 1988) seriously fails to describe the challenges of resetting children’s internal clocks.

Because “Yesterday” (Beatles 1965) is still yesterday, today is still today; let’s stop the “Time Warp” (“Rocky Horror Picture Show”1975) and keep 2 a.m., 2 a.m. “Time After Time” (Cyndi Lauper 1984).

So let’s put a coda to this nostalgic bit of musical “Time” (Pink Floyd 1972) and beg our congressmen to say the “Time Has Come Today” (the Chambers Brothers 1967).

Because “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is” (Chicago 1969) without looking at our phones?
