On Time: The Musical – Act 8

The Story
Time – The Musical is an original A Frank Angle production featuring songs about time.

Time The MusicalProgram (Past posts)
Act 1: Time
Act 2: Specific Time
Act 3: Years
Act 4: Months
Act 5: Days and Weekdays
Act 6: Weekends
Act 7: Hour(s)

Act 8
Act 8 focuses on songs about short time. Because songs with minute(s) and second(s) are limited, the producer is opening it up to other words as moment, ticks, instant, and others – but beware as words have other meanings outside of the sense of time. Besides pleasing the new producer, an additional challenge for attendees is no duplicates.

Production Note
It has come to my attention that past acts have crashed browsers. Please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line. The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video. But I don’t mind unembedding. .

Ladies and gentlemen, to kickoff Act 8 is one of my favorites named after a continent I haven’t visited. A grand AFA welcome to Asia with Heat of the Moment.

      • You are so harsh! I would be able to teleport that 2000 lt yrs in an instant with the help of my genius friend Alan.

        My ball did NOT go into any hazards yesterday. It turned out to be a really nice day in the mid to upper 50s and sunny. My drives were straight, not long. Pitches and chips were decent. Putting was dicey as they had recently aerated and there were leaves, holes, stems, and worm castings. Not the usual hazards. The practice green was under some trees. The margin of error for a 20′ put attempt was about 5′ in any direction.


        • Thanks. That’s a good one. Several players there.

          Sunday evening we went to a soup supper fund raiser for our local food pantry. Silent auction items were available. One was a guitar signed by Jimmy. I was outbid. 😦


        • It was timely. I added it to a facebook comment I had made a few moments before. I said “I don’t Root for Failure” after I had read a piece about Obama using that line to describe gop efforts for 5 years. They have 19 legislative days left on the calendar. They are trying to come up with ways to avoid dealing with issues such as immigration reform.

          Our pantry is a busy place. Numbers are up there and at all others around. People are in need. Melanie volunteers weekly. We both help maintain the web site.


  1. Ah Frank, I’m going to go a little risque on this one. One of my favorite R&B oldies, “Sixty Minute Man” was recorded in 1951 by Billy Ward and the Dominoes. This record was banned in the 50’s (really!) but is now recognized as one of the most important early rock ‘n roll songs to come out of the R&B tradition. It is also a classic number in the Carolinas as “beach music” that people “shag” (slow jitterbug) to. This video has the lyrics on the screen for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jh6re_I__HQ


    • Victoria,
      I love blasts from the blast … and a very soothing one at that. Many thanks … and best wishes to your daughter because a severe sprain isn’t any fun … especially at age because it crimps her style!


  2. Hi Frank. I just got caught up with your posts. Sorry I’m so sluggish but I’m working my butt off on my book (4-6 weeks before its release). Anyway, love the new blog picture and concept. My favorite Onion heading (•Mom breaks into son’s apartment to administer latest flu vaccine). This cracks me up. My adult kids will tell you that I AM THAT MOM. LOL! As to the Congress and the Affordable Care Act, do they not remember what it was like when Medicare D rolled out? It was a freakin’ mess. Did the Democrats try to destroy it even though they didn’t like it?No! They helped theirs states get on board and make it successful for their constituents. We, not them–us, not those people should be the mantra of the day.


    • E-Tom!
      Glad you have come up for air from your head to the grindstone. But hey – all for the sake of progress! Well done!

      As far as the ACA goes, here’s something from last Friday’s OITS: Republicans using the debacle at healthcare.gov to criticize the Affordable Care Act makes as much sense as Democrats making excuses for healthcare.gov. Meanwhile, a Congressional hearing on the matter is nothing more than political theater.

      Meanwhile, because it’s Time: The Musical, I have a song for you by Tavares … It Only Takes a Minute will get you dancing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7_9Bjzf-_s
