Having fun, writing about the stuff I like

The Theme from Time

Oscar Foulkes August 23, 2010 Uncategorized 3 comments

Late one Sunday evening (probably about 20 years ago) I turned on my car radio as I was driving home, and heard the Theme from Time for the first time. The streets were quiet, Sir Laurence Olivier’s narration was other-worldly and the words struck deep into my core. I know it sounds weird, but there’s no other way to describe what happened to me.

I spent years looking for a copy in every music store I went into, all around the world, and eventually gave up. Had this search been taking place more recently the internet would have been my first port of call, but because it all happened before the ‘internet era’ I never thought to try online when the option became available.

So, here it is. I don’t think I’m breaking the spirit of copyright too badly, because I have tried really hard to buy the track (turns out, it’s been out of print for decades). You may already know it, and you certainly can find it on several other websites. For those of you unfamiliar with this fabulous bit of wisdom, download it and listen with your eyes closed.

I also found this version of the lyrics, which seems to be more-or-less accurate. And, here’s a link to the Wikipedia entry.
