Composition

Each clock was recorded separately in an antiques store. This is followed by an eerie two-minute passage dominated by Nick Mason's rototoms and backgrounded by a tocking sound created by Roger Waters picking two muted strings on his bass. With David Gilmour singing lead on the verses and with Richard Wright singing lead on the bridges and with female singers providing backup vocals, the lyrics of the song deal with Roger Waters's realization that life was not about preparing yourself for what happens next, but about grabbing control of your own destiny (he attributes his earlier ignorance of this to his mother's obsession with education). A guitar solo from Gilmour provides the refrain over the same chord progressions as the verse and chorus. A reprise of the album's earlier "Breathe" brings the song to a close, before it segues into "The Great Gig in the Sky". When the tom drums were recorded, there were only 3 available so the band had to tune the drum after each hit to get the right pitch and then mix the hit into the song. Time is at the tempo of 120 bpm, which switches to half time (60 bpm) at the chorus. This, of course, is at the same tempo of a clock.

Notes

  1. ^ The track number depends upon the edition of the album; some releases merge the two tracks "Speak to Me" and "Breathe," for instance.
  2. ^ This includes the reprise of "Breathe". When subtracting that song, it reduces the running of Time down to 5:56, thus making it the third-longest song on the album (right behind "Money").

Pink Floyd - definition of Pink Floyd - Labor Law Talk Dictionary (1982 words)
Pink Floyd are renowned for their lavish stage shows, combining over-the-top visual experiences with their music to create a show in which the artists themselves are almost secondary.
In their early days, Pink Floyd were among the first bands to use a dedicated traveling light show in conjunction with their performances, projecting slides, film clips, and psychedelic patterns onto a large circular screen.
Pink Floyd mounted their most elaborate stage show in conjunction with the tour of The Wall, in which a band of session musicians played the first song, wearing rubber face masks (proving successfully that the members of the band were not known for their individual personalities).
