Chicago (the band)

Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

Oct 1970

Chicago releases Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is? as a single that reaches #7 in the Billboard Hot 100, making it the band’s third straight Top 10 single after Make Me Smile and 25 or 6 to 4. It is written by Robert Lamm:

Well, I’ve always been kind of intrigued with the idea of time, and how we attempt to keep track of it, and you know, I talk in other songs about crossing over into other dimensions, even temporarily, on any given day. But “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is” is just kind of recounting an experience I had when I was a teenager, where I asked somebody what time it was and he said. “Does anybody really know what time it is?”
