Haven't Got Time For the Pain

by

Carly Simon



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This was the follow-up to "Mockingbird," which was Taylor's duet with her husband at the time, James Taylor. Here, a once sad, unfulfilled woman has discovered happiness and has turned her back on a past that once seemed hopeless. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)

I use this song like a mantra when I am feeling blue for too long.

That song says something about true happiness. When you are focused on others you have no time to feel sorry for yourself.

One of Carly Simon's best. It's easy to sing along to this tune, all the words are so easy to remember, even after all these years.

Al Jourgensen of MinistryAl Jourgensen of Ministry
In the name of song explanation, Al talks about scoring heroin for William Burroughs, and that's not even the most shocking story in this one.

Is it goofy fun, or is there real meaning in these songs? And all about the Phineas and Ferb theme song.
Francis Rossi of Status QuoFrancis Rossi of Status Quo
Doubt led to drive for Francis, who still isn't sure why one of Status Quo's biggest hits is so beloved.

Mike Watt of the Minutemen tells the story of the song that became an Indie Rock touchstone. It's also the story of what Mike calls "The Movement."
