Time After Time is designed to display a lyric for whatever time you’re looking at it – although sadly, the clock is stuck in the timezone of Melbourne (Narrm), Australia (UST+10, or +11 in daylight savings time), so it may not match the time (or season) where you are. It is inspired by Christian Marclay’s 2010 film The Clock – although unlike Mr Marclay, I have not (yet) been able to find a lyric for every minute of the day, so sometimes when you look at it, you’ll see instead the lyric for the most recent time there’s one for.

A few stats about the project: there are currently lyrics covering 270 of the day’s 3600 minutes (although some of them may only be covered one day of the week – or even the year), taken from 445 songs by 408 different performers, with more being added all the time. And if you have one you want to see added, please don’t hesitate to say so in the comments.
