1969 Song of the Day is- “Time Has Told Me’- by Nick Drake. Time Has Told Me is the first song on side 1 of Nick Drake’s debut album “Five Leaves Left.” Drake wrote the song- as he did every song on the three albums released during his lifetime. Drake’s work wasn’t recognized in his lifetime- it wasn’t until well over a decade after his death at the age of 26 in 1974- that he started to get the recognition he deserved. Drake was certainly discouraged by his lack of commercial success- and it’s hard to blame him. His work has proved to have been timeless. Nick Drake’s songs tend to be very melancholy- earlier this year I made the mistake of listening to one of them while I went for a walk- not exactly music to get you going. His music is best heard when you are up early in the morning all by yourself and you are doing nothing but concentrating on what you are listening too. Nick Drake deserves to be heard.
