Writing about time — and finishing up with Tom Waits — has sent me in search of time songs. Today I offer a soundtrack to pass the time.
Bruce Cockburn opens the set with “Lovers in a Dangerous Time.”
John Mellencamp continues: “Save Some Time to Dream.”
An old favorite — Shawn Colvin singing “Ricochet in Time.”
As long as we’re in old favorite mode — Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time.”
One more old favorite: “Where Does the Time Go?” by the Innocence Mission.
On to Ryan Adams — “In My Time of Need.”
Here is Dawes with Mumford and Sons: “When My Time Comes.”
And our closing hymn: Paul Simon singing, “Love and Hard Times.”
Sing along every chance you get.
