Everyone has their favorite Christmas song. Halloween songs are also growing in popularity. Hey, there are even Thanksgiving songs. What’s not as popular? Daylight Savings Time songs.
However, just because they’re rare doesn’t mean they don’t exist. They do. There just aren’t nearly as many songs about Daylight Savings Time as there are about the major holidays (and some of the smaller holidays as well).
Daylight Savings Time Songs
That didn’t stop me from putting together a list of the five greatest songs about Daylight Savings Time. It wasn’t an easy task, I will admit. Thankfully, I had an additional hour of the day this morning to tackle this daunting task.
Putting together a list of my favorite Christmas songs would be a breeze. There are, truly, countless options to choose from. I even put together a list recently of my favorite Halloween-themed songs. No shortage of those, either. It was no problem at all.
However, artists and bands don’t seem to focus on Daylight Savings Time. Which is wild to me because we all go through it. Twice a year even! I’ve always been told musicians like to write from their heart and write about what they know. I guess you can’t always do that. Otherwise, I would only write about value menus and Daylight Savings Time.
Perhaps, a reason songwriters don’t choose to focus on Daylight Savings Time is because they think it won’t be around much longer. That’s understandable. You don’t want to write a song that future generations won’t be able to understand. That’s why you don’t hear songs about 8-tracks or Beta players. The artists had the foresight to know these are not timeless commodities and will one day be out of our daily lives. Well played, songwriters.
Due to the Sunshine Protection Act, we have to follow the rules of Daylight Savings Time. However, lawmakers have been discussing the possibility of getting rid of the tradition. According to SleepFoundation.org, dozens of states are considering legislation to eliminate clock changes. Despite the opposition of Daylight Savings Time by many people, it doesn’t seem like it’ll be going away any time soon. Certainly not this year.
Until then, we still have our songs about Daylight Savings Time. Here’s the best I could come up with.
