Did You Know: “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” By Chicago
The ‘Tickets @ 2’ hit of the day is Chicago’s “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?”
One of Chicago’s early hits, this is an existential song about people’s actions and thoughts controlled by the time of day.
Chicago singer and keyboard player Robert Lamm wrote it and sang lead. He explained on The Chris Isaak Hour: “I was a teenager walking down the street in Brooklyn, New York where I grew up. I walked by a movie theatre and there was an usher standing outside taking a cigarette break. I said to him, ‘Hey man, what time is it?’ He said, ‘Doeas anybody really know what time it is?’ I remembered that when I was trying to write this sort of Beatle-esque shuffle.”
This is a perfect sampling of Chicago featuring their horn section of Walter Parazaider, James Pankow and Lee Loughnane.
