Set Clocks Forward Tonight

The Chambers Brothers with the greatest use of a cowbell ever!

This 1966 song was in protest of the Vietnam War and was significant, as it used many special effects to simulate war sounds and of course the clock. These sounds were very much ahead of their time. This video is the long version which includes the effects. The "radio" version cut much of the psychedelic stuff as it rose to #11 on the top 100 charts that year.

The song has been used and abused by many different TV shows, movies and cover artists.

I hope you enjoy my entry into the twilight zone that we call "Daylight Saving Time". No s at the end of Saving I am told. Benny Franklin thought this up and the rest is history. Have a great day and go to bed an hour early so you dont lose your beauty sleep.

Thanks for the song and the reminder. I hate losing an hour and I am one of the few people I know that prefer it to be dark sooner than later and light in the morning!

When I had first heard of this song many years ago, I thought it was Eric Burden singing it. Goes to show how soulful his voice was.
