lenten journal: a time for singing


    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.
