The Byrds

She Don't Care About Time

Composed by Gene Clark

Song Review by

One of the early Byrds' finest records, "She Don't Care About Time" was unfortunately regulated to only B-side status for the "Turn, Turn, Turn" single. Gene Clark's intricate, densely packed wordplay reached unheard of heights with this tune, and conveys romanticism at it's best. Although not actually part of the songwriting process, Roger McGuinn's nifty Bach-inspired guitar lines (from "Joy of Man's Desiring") took the song to even greater heights.
