One-Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi...have you come up with any yet?
"Summertime" by George Gershwin., of course. And "Time in a Bottle" by Jim Croce. Nine-Mississippi, ten Mississippi. Any more? Whant about "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper, and "Time Is on My Side" by the Rolling Stones.
Fourteen Mississippi, fifteen Mississippi. C'mon now, there are more. Lots more. What's the song from Casablanca? Oh yeah -- "As Time Goes By." Twenty-one Mississippi -- and there are more with the word "summertime" -- like "In the Summertime" -- that song by Mongo Jerry -- and "Summertime Blues." Twenty-nine Mississippi, thirty Mississippi. Times up!
Of course, there are many more songs with "time" in the title. You'll think of more.
And speaking (or singing?) of "time," I recently posted my "Top Ten References to Time by Emily Dickinson" on Tumblr, and I included links to 10 through 7 on my list in one PLOG post on this site, and I included links from 6 though 3 in another PLOG post. However, I never inlcuded links to my top two references to "time" by Emily Dickinson here -- so here they are:
Number 2: Click HERE.
Number 1: Click HERE.
But just like the fact that there are many other songs with the word "time" in their titles, there are many other poems of Dickinson's which reference time. Do you have favorites that I didn't mention in my Top Ten list? If so, let me know -- when you have the time.
