The Babys – Isn’t It Time (1977)

Isn't_It_Time

Isn’t it Time is a song that was performed by the English group The Babys in 1977 and was released on their album Broken Heart. It was not written by members of the group but by a bass guitarist Jack Conrad along with Ray Kennedy and was presented to the public as a song with a distinctive piano introduction by Michael Corby which moves into an opening vocal performance by lead singer John Waite. The strong vocals of the three Babettes, a specially selected group of singers, balance the tone of the song which moves through the decisions a lover has to make “I just can’t find the answers to the questions that keep going through my mind” and “losing this love could be your mistake.” The lyrics are motivated by Ray Kennedy’s love for a French woman that he knew during the writing of the song.
