a Pop Song (2012)
TIM Song is a Pop Song.
It's for a speaking voice and accompaniment.
The accompaniment is for any Pop instrumentation.
The voice should be miked.
The text is the original text of the BBC telephone time (dial: TIM).
The song can have any duration (10 seconds, 3'30", endless), but it has to be sung always at the accurate time!
A recording of it therefore is not an option!
