Zombies – Time of the Season

The Zombies were a band of excellent musicians. In 1968 they released Odessey and Oracle and in 1969 this song peaked at #3 in the Billboard 100 and #1 in Canada. The Zombies had already broken up by the time this song hit.

The song was written in the morning and recorded that afternoon. Colin Blunstone the singer had a hard time getting the phrasing right. He finally told Rod Argent, who wrote the song, to sing it. Colin ended up singing and doing great.

Al Kooper pushed this album to Clive Davis and that was a big reason it was released in America.

After the band broke up Rod Argent formed “Argent” and Colin had a successful solo career in the UK.

Time of the Season
It’s the time of the season
When love runs high
And this time, give it to me easy
And let me try with pleasured hands
To take you in the sun to (promised lands)
To show you every one
It’s the time of the season for loving
What’s your name?
Who’s your daddy?
(He rich) Is he rich like me?
Has he taken, any time (any time)
(To show) to show you what you need to live
Tell it to me slowly (tell me what)
I really want to know
It’s the time of the season for loving
What’s your name?
Who’s your daddy?
(He rich) Is he rich like me?
Has he taken, any time (any time)
(To show) to show you what you need to live
Tell it to me slowly (tell me what)
I really want to know
It’s the time of the season for loving

    1. They came to Nashville where I live and I didn’t find out about it til a month later. I really wanted to see them. I love that album…Care of Cell 44, A Rose for Emily, etc…

  1. The Odyssey and Oracle is a really good album. Better than anything Rod Argent did with Argent. Hold Your Head Up is so repetitive. Anyway, I’ve got a couple of Zombies Greatest Hits compilations. Wish I had O&O, it would definitely be in a protective plastic sleeve.
