Time Will Tell (1974) 
Tower of Power. A smoking, jazzy track that hit #69 on the R&B chart and #27 on the U.S. Dance chart. Voted by Modern Drummer magazine as one of the most important recordings for drummers to listen to.Image result for time will tell tower of power

(Night Time Is) The Right Time (1958)
Ray Charles and Margie Hendrix (of the Raelettes) sang the call and response. This track peaked at #5 on the R&B charts, but barely made it on to the pop charts at #95. Check out this video from the movie "Ray" for some biographical context.

*Time (1981) 
Alan Parsons Project. Request!  Peaked at #15. One of the group’s few tracks on which Alan Parsons sang backup and counterpoint vocals.

Spring Forward (Fall Back)  (2009)
Even though this track, written and performed by Fred Pfiel, is not, strictly speaking, a remnant, it is the only song I could find that was specifically about Daylight Savings Time, which we are featuring tonight.  

*Time Has Come Today (1966)
Chambers Brothers. This psychedelic soul classic was originally recorded in 1966 and clocked in at 2:37. There were two subsequent “hit versions” released in 1968. You heard the version clocking at 4:45. Requested by Rick listening in Granbury TX.
