Happy new year folks!!
The song starts of with loads of clocks ringing at the same time (it's a great wake up song). After the 'clockwork' intro, the breathtaking drumming take place! He is not playing on his drum set but on rototoms. Roger is at the same time playing his bass. When I first saw a clip from this song live, I was so amazed about how quick it has to change from rototoms to the normal drums.
'He had just recently before we did that album gone out with a whole set of equipment and had recorded all these clocks in a clock shop. And we were doing the song Time, and he said "Listen, I just did all these things, I did all these clocks," and so we wheeled out his tape and listened to it and said "Great! Stick it on!" And that, actually, is Alan Parsons' idea
The song is about making the most of life instead of wasting it!
Have a wonderful night!
