How amusing. So many of you have posted Cher's "Turn Back Time", as I did.

Can it be that I am not the only one who dislikes (loathes, despises, and hates) this modern, technologically-advanced, politically-correct era?

But then, why should we hate it? We all chose to stand by and allow it to happen, thinking that it couldn't possibly affect us.

Just as we are doing again this very moment in Time. 

Lord Sesshoumaru - 殺生丸

 


I just had another idea along this topic. "To Be Or Not To Be?" To look back or not to look back. To look back or to look forward. Here is a sequence of four songs that gives a different perspective on that. And they are about time/timing.

 

Steve Winwood; When You See A Chance (Take It)

Carpenters; We've Only Just Begun

Seals & Crofts; We May Never Pass This Way Again

LeAnne Rhimes & Elton John; Written In The Stars (God's Experiment)

Here's an old favorite of mine ---

 

 

Wasted on the Way
Crosby, Stills & Nash


Look around me
I can see my life before me
Running rings around the way it used to be
I am older now
I have more than what I wanted
But I wish that I had started long before I did
And there's so much time to make up everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
Oh, when you were young
Did you question all the answers
Did you envy all the dancers who had all the nerve
Look around you now
You must go for what you wanted
Look at all my friends who did and got what they deserved
So much time to make up everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
So much love to make up everywhere you turn
Love we have wasted on the way
So much water moving underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
Let the water come and carry us away

"Time Keeps Flowing Like A River"... Alan Parsons Project.  A hauntingly beautiful song!  Seach for it, listen, and enjoy.  (You're welcome.)
