    Hello. I saw you. I know you. I knew you. I think that I remember your name… … … … Should we talk about the government? …

      My entire life. My. Entire. Life. I have NOT been able to figure out mathematically the title of that song. It drives me batty.

      Deborah: According to Robert Lamm, who wrote it:

      “I was living with a bunch of hippies up above Sunset Strip. One of the advantages of this particular house was that it was in the Hollywood Hills and I could look out over the city late at night. I wanted to try to describe the process of writing the song that I was writing. So, ‘waiting for the break of day, searching for something to say, flashing lights against the sky’ -- there was a neon sign across the city. That song came from the fact that it was 25 or 6 to 4 a.m. in the morning when I looked at my watch -- I was looking for a line to finish the chorus.

      Most songs that were written, especially in the early days, whenever I got them to the band and we started rehearsing them, that’s when the songs took shape -- once these guys got hold of them. There was definitely a lot of raw material, I thought it was a song when I wrote the words down, I wrote the changes down and I brought the charts to rehearsal, but it wasn’t really a song until they all played it.”

      Rob beat me to it -yep, it’s the time of day. 25 or 26 minutes to 4:00. Basically he’s so tired he can’t tell if it’s 3:35 or 3:36am. XD

      Angela Margitan My brain can’t process this right now. I think I need some chocolate to adjust. πŸ˜€

      Analog watch, it’s not that much difference between the times -- especially if the hands are a bit misaligned. πŸ™‚

    (Trying again.) The Moody Blues, “22,000 Days”. A song about human mortality. I did the math; that’s about 60 years and 3 months.
