Thanks for kicking things off, Cindy.

The Time Bandits, a Dutch group I remember well from childhood.

John B -- Here's one of them. The Stones had time on their minds.

"Out of Time"

"Good Times, Bad Times"

"The Last Time"
youtube.com/watch?v=r-YG8LZ3GPY

"Good Time Women"
youtube.com/watch?v=QZo_VItwXEw

A change of pace:

The Platters -- "Twilight Time"
youtube.com/watch?v=UGwa2tw7Vws

Petula Clark -- "A Sign of the Times"
youtube.com/watch?v=H5jCUtzR3fw

PS:  Petula's single reached #11 in the US in 1966. But it was on the UK chart at #49 for only one week. Wikipedia says her singles always did better in the US.

Larry, I can't believe you don't enjoy a little bit of JCM. He's an American Fool, and he hurts sooo good.



The incredible Gillian Welch.



Princess Chelsea. A little kiwi gem.

Thanks to Larry, Verden, Al, John B. and Popeye for casting your votes early.  You have been counted! 

Verden, I had no idea about JCM destroying the Boys' equipment!  I like some of his music, but never followed him, so don't really know anything about him except most recently when he became engaged to actress, Meg Ryan.

Al, I love the Blues Brothers!  That was a really nice video and good to see John's brother Jim taking over for him.  

Paul - When I saw your video post of the Kinks, I immediately thought of tBedford.  He loved them and several years ago after I told him that I liked them too, he copied some CD's and mailed them to me.  The Time of the Season/Zombies was a song I considered for my battle this week.  I believe it's been used before, once or twice.

Well, there was something about his voice, his name, and this picture that put me off. I stand by my decision, or rather, my reaction!

[John-Cougar-Mellencamp] 
(Although he says the "Cougar" was forced on him by the damn record company.)

Two times two:

(American) Spring -- "Good Time"

Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen -- "Good Time"

Ray Charles -- "Night Time Is the Right Time"

Creedence -- "Night Time Is the Right Time"

PS:  That's Margie Hendrix (apparently no relation to Jimi) of the Raelettes sharing the lead vocal.

No matter what I do, I can't bring up that photo of John Cougar. Do I need to turn the child safety thingie off on my computer? [smile]

bonnie -- It's the American Fool album cover. Let me describe it. He looks very serious. He's got a lot of hair on his head. He's got stubble. It looks like he's wearing an army jacket. His collars are turned up. And he's got a motorcycle in the background. I think the image is safe for children, although he's doing some serious smoldering.

In that Timey vein still:

Get groovy with The Airplane:

And staying groovy, setting up The Woodstock Event in Yasgur's Field



Kind of in the theme (band-wise) - No, Not Precious and Few
Outsiders take on the Isleys

Larry, is there a possibility that it's the 20/20 version and he's mixed the Hawthorne tag onto the end?

Gold - Time Won’t Let Me (The Outsiders - 1966)
This won’t be the first time I wish t was here. He’d be able to tell us plenty more about this Cleveland band. I’ve been a fan of this track since I first heard it back around 2005, perhaps, courtesy of this board. Good find but its shelf life isn’t great. Here’s lead singer Sonny Geraci six years later singing ‘Precious and Few’, a favourite of mine, although it owes a lot to ‘Cherish’. The Lettermen were onto this, too. 



Silver - Time to Get Alone (The Beach Boys - 1967-68/release date still to be determined)
As waltzes go, this is ok. The lyrics, again, are not its strong suit. Interesting to decipher the leads. Is that Brian AND Al on the chorus? Also nice to hear Mike providing that vocal bed and, I presume, Dennis on the tag. 

Bronze - Do That to Me One More Time (Captain & Tennille - 1979)
The lyrics were way too saucy for me. I hate songs about sex. Plus she was unflattering to him in interview and divorced him after 39 years of marriage. Not a fan of her. I loved ‘Love Will Keep Us Together’. Sedaka was back. That would’ve gotten my Gold this week, Cindy. 

Participant - This Time (John Cougar - 1980)  
Australia gave Johnny Cougar his first chart hit in 1978 with ‘I Need a Lover’ (#5) when America didn’t even know him. He had a run in with Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum back then, too. It looks like he matured over the years. Scarecrow was a great album. But his earlier stuff, like this, was too cocky for my liking. I don’t know how this could have challenged for the Gold this week. The guy is only 5ft 6in.

Seems as though people have a lot of "time" on their hands this week and it "ticks" me off, though I'm not "alarmed". But I've got to "hand" it to all of you for all the "time"-ly music this week, in addition to Cindy's battle songs. Now, "watch" what I have to share next:

To Darren's question regarding where Cindy's posted version of "Time to Get Alone" comes from:

Larry has already sleuthed out most of the possibilities, but I'll add this after listening to multiple published versions several times each this week (original 20/20 album version, Hawthorne, Summer Love Songs, Sunshine Tomorrow albums). Cindy's battle version isn't any of those versions, so it is presumably some alternative studio mix or bootleg version not widely published or possibly the YouTube poster's or someone else's own mix of multiple versions.

A few of my findings based on my homework on this subject:

Both Cindy's battle version and the Hawthorne version have the Mike Love-led final vocal tag of "Time, time, to get alone..." that starts at around 2:51 and lasts around 20-25 seconds with the fade. But the two other published versions mentioned above do not have that tag. 

But, on the other hand, the Hawthorne version has a 22-or so second instrumental/whistling bridge that starts at around 1:30 and ends around 1:53 of that version. That part is missing from Cindy's version. The Sunshine Tomorrow version also has the instrumental/whistling bridge, but the original 20/20 version and Summer Love Songs version do not. 

Another difference is that Cindy's version contains the pronounced "deep and wide" phrase at around 1:42, which is also on the original 20/20 version and Summer Love Songs version, while that is missing from the Sunshine Tomorrow and Hawthorne versions. 


As for my votes this week:

Gold -- "Time Won't Let Me", Outsiders (from Cleveland). One of my all-time mid-60s up-tempo hits, and one that was a popular hit at school dances in our part of the country during the mid-60s era, along with "Gloria" by the Shadows of Knight (Chicago), "The Cheater" by the Bob Kuban Band (St. Louis), "Kind of A Drag" by the Buckinghams (Chicago), and a number of others. All Midwestern US bands, by the way.

Also, since t bedford is no longer here to defend his Cleveland bands, I'll do so in his honor. The Outsiders were not one-hit wonders. In fact, they had four Top 40 hits in the US according to Billboard, all of which I know quite well. Their second hit, which reached #21 on the US charts was the lovely ballad "Girl in Love", featuring lead singer Sonny Geraci:


Their third chart hit, which reached #15 in the US, was the powerful up-tempo song "Respectable", which Al has already posted above. 

Their final Top 40 chart hit was "Help Me Girl", which reached #37 on the Top 40 charts. It was also recorded by Eric Burdon and hit the US charts a few weeks after the Outsiders in December 1966. Burdon's version reached a bit higher in the US charts, making it to #26. 


The Outsiders had a handful of other decent-to-good songs which didn't chart. Their "best of" album, shown below and containing 25 songs, is actually pretty good. I've had it in my collection for a long time, after replacing my old LP version of their mid-60s hits. 
Capitol Collectors Series
For example, here's "Was It Really Real", which was the flip side of the "Time Won't Let Me" single in 1966:


Finally, as some of you know, lead singer Sonny Geraci, a Cleveland native, went on to form the short-lived group Climax, which had the US #3 chart hit, "Precious & Few" in 1972:

Unfortunately, Sonny Geraci passed away a couple years ago, in 2017.

Silver -- "Time to Get Alone", Beach Boys. A totally lovely and contemplative song, written entirely by Brian (music and lyrics credited to him), from a period when he wrote a number of lovely laid back songs. I've already commented plenty about this song when making my comparisons above of its different mixes. 

Bronze -- "This Time", John "Cougar" Mellencamp. I've been a big fan of John Mellencamp from his early John Cougar to John Cougar Mellencamp to John Mellencamp albums, and I have almost all of them. This hit from his early album Nothing Matters and What If It Did was actually not my favorite song on the album. I preferred "Ain't Even Done with the Night", which charted higher than "This Time":


Of Mellencamp's many albums, my all-time favorite is his album Scarecrow, released in 1985, and containing five Top 40 hits in the US, including three that were Top 10 hits ("Lonely Ol' Night", "Small Town", and my favorite, "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A (A Salute to 60's Rock)" and a bunch of other excellent songs.


I'm actually going to be seeing Mellencamp perform next month on his current concert tour, and I'm really looking forward to it. I've only seen him once before about a decade ago, when the annual Farm Aid concert was held here in St. Louis. These days his music is mostly Americana/roots-styled music and blues. He's still one of my favorites, over nearly 40 years, when his first hit, "I Need A Lover", from his self-titled debut album, John Cougar, hit the US charts in late 1979:


Tin -- "Do That to Me One More Time", Captain & Schlemiel. No thanks. Not again!  


A few more moments in "time" that have not yet been mentioned this week:

Pink Floyd's classic "Time", "chiming" in from Dark Side of the Moon:


The Alan Parson Project's lovely hit ballad "Time", from the album The Turn of A Friendly Card:


Hootie & The Blowfish's (featuring Darius Rucker) 1996 hit "Time":


The Pozo-Seco Singers' lovely minor folk-rock hit, "Time", from the mid-60s, which reached #3 on the US Easy Listening charts. The group included a young Don Williams, who went on to become a future country music Hall of Fame legend:


And, finally, Nelson Bragg's lovely "Tyme & Tide Agree", from his excellent second solo album, We Get What We Want:


Then, there's the Prince-anointed Minneapolis-based band The Time (which included lead singer Morris Day, the now legendary Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and others). The group had several pop and R&B hits, but that's another subject altogether. 

Excellent battle theme and several excellent battle songs this week, Cindy, and also a battle theme that I, too, had contemplated using sometime in 2019, but with all different songs than yours this week. Oh Well!:
