Yes, it's finally here - the New Year and a brand new start to the Battle of the Bands.  It seems that time really does fly.  Are you ready for it?

I've chosen four songs with Time in the title.

Without further adieu, here they are:

1.  Time To Get Alone by The Beach Boys.  Released on February 3, 1969.  Written by Brian Wilson for the 20/20 album.  



2.  This Time by John Cougar Mellencamp.  From his 1980 album, Nothin' Matters And What If It Did.  



3.  Time Won't Let Me by The Outsiders. This hit single was released in February 1966 and was on Billboard's Top 100 for 15 weeks and peaked at #5.   



4.  Do That To Me One More Time by The Captain & Tennille.  Written by Toni Tennille, this song was a huge hit and rose to #1 on the US charts in February 1980.  As you may already know, the Captain and Toni did some work in early 70's with The Beach Boys.  I thought about doing this one in tribute to Daryl Dragon, "The Captain" who recently passed away.   



So, there they are.  Enjoy listening to them through the week. 

I sure am going to miss tBedford's votes and commentary on the battles from now on.  He was usually the first person to cast his votes for so long.  He will certainly be missed here.

I thought of using "Time To Get Alone" next week (it fits next week's theme quite well), but probably wasn't going to. It's interesting that this seems to be the fourth different version of the song that's been in the battle.

Season 1 had the 20/20 version, which is 2:38.

Season 2 had the version from the Hawthorne compilation, which features the lyric "away from the people, the city full of people", and other differences. It's 3:39.

Season 7 had the version by Redwood.
youtube.com/watch?v=eJg4rMCkwDc

Now we have one with the ending from the Hawthorne version, but without the "city full of people" lyric. It's 3:20.

I bet this week's does as well as the other ones by the Beach Boys. [smile]

They say the passage of time is an illusion. But the extension of space isn't? Weird.

Gold -- The Beach Boys -- They were very good.

Silver -- The Outsiders -- Their one hit. They were from Cleveland, so t. bedford would have had something interesting to say.

Bronze -- The Captain & Tennille -- It's very smooth. She was very cute. Didn't like the hat.

Tin -- John C. Mellencamp -- He's never appealed to me.


La Luz -- "All the Time"

                   1)Time wont Let me...This is easily my fav this week.It rocks .

                   2)Do it to me one more time...The big hit but i'm still not crazy about it.

                   3)Time to get alone....Way to light and fluffy. Not how I like The Beach Boys to sound

                   4)This time...Never liked Mellancamp after he tried to destroy The Beach Boys sound equipment in a jealous tirade in the early eighties


                    Some of my fav Time songs are..Time...................... Pink Floyd
                                                                    Time is on my Side...The Rolling Stones
                                                                    Time of the Season..The Zombies

ah, plenty of time to ponder where this version of 'time to get alone'
fits amongst my favouriter versions of a favourite song.

in the meantime,
here's a few others of a temporal nature that particularly appeal to me:

clifford t ward, quintessentially english, from the midlands,
who recorded some delicately beautiful records,
starting on john peel's dandelion  label and on to charisma in the early 70's.
never as huuge as heshould've been and died too soon.
 'time the magician' ('...played a few old tricks on us...')


ne of bowie's better numbers from 'don't let me down'
'glass spider' tour era ,1987,
with a current 21st century, world eco-devastation theme
and a remarkable diveo,
directed by my chum tim pope
with choreography by toni basil
and featuring on guitars not only carlos alomar
but peter frampton.

i'll not include bowie's brelesque 'time'
since i can't find a clip that does the song justice
- i loved it as part of live shows i saw.

and here's miles davis in gorgeous mood with an instrumental version
of a cyndi lauper song 'time after time'
(an excellent songwriter / performer, but not as good at the old dance stuff as ms t basil)


nick drake
, of course, made this exquisite record
'time has told me'

(can i add this one, too,
since, once again, tim pope crops up
- commissioned by the family to make this diveo for the repackaged music.
)

cheers

plus, because we just have to have that 'everything connects' moment:
here's that brilliant recording by the zombies
which appeared on 'odessey and oracle'
- now, jim rodford (who sadly died a year ago)
was a founder member of argent and longtime zombies bass player.
not only that, but he was the bass player in the kinks for the best part of 20 years.
and, of course, joining the original surviving members of the zombies
on keyboards for their live 'odessey and oracle'
shows, 
you'd find none other than darian sahanaja ...

in remembrance...

Hi Cindy - Battle Year 10

Gold (Trib to T) and the Cleveland band sound - The Outsiders - Time Won't Let Me
Funny that the prominent instruments are the horns and organ and neither are on the video
Interesting story behind the band and where it went forward.
They are considered one hit wonders but you could see and tell that they were in their scene enough to cook up something like this.

Silver - Brian and the Boys are getting away from it all - Time to Get Alone (listen to the examples from the latest sessions releases above.  
Bronze - and a good song by Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille - BOTH Beach Boys/Girl

Tin to Johnny Cougar before he was Mellencamp again. 

Dance moves are right at least.  A good song is a good song. CLICK and listen \/

And it keeps on getting covered.  D. Diken on that classic drum fill

In relation to what Larry was saying, I enquired with Tom, Cindy and AGD last week about which version this 'Time to Get Alone' is. 

It's clearly not the version on 20/20, which, according to Wiki, runs at 2:40. Mine goes for 2:38. 

This clip version runs approx 3:14. The info under the clip on YouTube says it's from Summer Love Songs. But, again according to Wiki, that track is listed at 2:56. So is that a mistake?

Wondering if Tom or anyone who owns Summer Love Songs or even Sunshine Tomorrow can help me.

1. "Time to Get Alone"

unfortunately, did not mean a solo record yet.   Really good though.  "mysterious" as Creten Welsh would say.

2. "Time Won't Let Me"

great song

3. "This Time" by John Mellencamp

I liked him okay, back in this sort of soul boy/pretend Springsteen era.  But then, as Bruce got more and more basic/mediocre, less opera, more rootsy, and very oddly, everyone bought him much more for being uh, real, it must have occurred to Mellancamp.  'They love him for THAT?  SHEUUUT.  I really DID wear overalls, when I walked on a fence rail at my grandpa's farm.  He really DID have a silo.  I could do that kind of uh honest roots music in my sleep.  So he did.  and it came to pass, that every one loved Mellencamp so much that he became so wealthy that he was able to retire the Cougar name.  God bless. 

4.  "Do that to me One More Time"

only use skinnier models for the video...

by the way.  Just saw "Into the Spiderverse."  It was okay.  but why no fat jokes to King Pin?  would it hurt the feelings of kids playing video games?  Since when can King Pin fly through the air and lift cars over his head, anyway?  and why did Otto become Liv Octavius?  (was it a Bruce Jenner like deal?).  Why did Aunt May become Spidey's own Alfred from 'Batman' complete with 'spidercave'?  Was it a AARP demand? (because 80-somethings need a strong role model with a baseball bat, too?).  and...if Peter doesn't explain to Morales how to make the web-shooters, isn't this new Mexican-American teenage Spiderman going to run out soon??

It's not the one from Summer Love Songs. That seems to be the 20/20 version with a longer fadeout, including seven or eight seconds of total silence at the end (I'm having my hearing tested tomorrow).

The one on Sunshine Tomorrow is 3:15, closer to Cindy's version in length. But that one is the instrumental backing track and the instruments play to the end. In Cindy's version, the instruments end at 2:50 and then it's a cappella.

The person who posted this week's video on YouTube, Daniel Allen, has 3,699 subscribers. He's got a lot of nice videos. Maybe he's in the business.

paul -- that's a good selection, especially the Clifford T. Ward, Miles Davis and Nick Drake.

Al -- a good song is a good song, but a bad voice is a bad voice. Nice to see John's younger brother Jim moving with such grace, however. He was also very good playing a mobster in the new Twin Peaks. [smile]

One for John B:

The Chambers Brothers -- "Time Has Come Today" (1967), all 11 minutes

My timely votes:

Gold: Time to Get Alone - Beach Boys - Another beauty from the boys. Makes me want to waltz.

Silver: Time Won't Let Me - Outsiders - I like the blasting horns on this classic.

Bronze: This Time - John Cougar had many good songs.

Tin: Do That Thing To Me One More Time - Captain & Tennille - Better than Muskrat Love.

A timely song from the Vaughan Brothers.



Thanks Cindy!

for me, Larry?  You shouldn't have.  11 minutes huh?   maybe I can trade it for ...'Time' by Tom Waits and 'Out of Time' by the Stones, and still have some left over for a Plimsouls  (e.g., 'Now,' 'Zero Hour', or How Long Will it Take?').  Just in case, the Plimsouls were too long, "Time for Action" by Secret Affair or
"Groovy Times" by the Clash.
