The song No Time at All from Pippin is one of my favorite broadway songs to cheer you up. Everyone hits a point where they break up with someone, fail a test or a class, lose a job, get in a fight with a friend or just even feel like they aren’t worth much. We all feel these at some point, for me it is each year as I turn a year younger on my birthday.
Anyways, if you constantly worry about how bad life is and forget that there are good things that happen when you’re older, when you take a nap and wake up, when you get through the week and enjoy a weekend, you forget that sometimes things suck and everyone feels like they have no purpose. Even Avenue Q has a song called Purpose which is about finding your purpose. Anyways, when Pippin walks into the room to talk to Granny, he talks about how he feels worthless and that is when Granny decides to jump in.
No Time at All from Pippin is a song that Granny sings to Pippin about remembering that life is worth living and you always have to remember that things do eventually get better. One of the things that I think everyone hates is that you have to be proper your whole life. No swearing, being polite, no sex talk, etc… However, when you are older, you sort of earn the right to be as vulgar and as funny as you’d like which is what I love about some of Granny’s first lines.
The song No Time at All from Pippin is one of my favorite songs to listen to whenever I feel worthless or feel like I haven’t accomplished anything. Anyways, this is one of my favorite songs from Pippin, besides corner of the sky, and I think that if you are ever having a bad day or are just feeling down, you’ll end up falling in love with No Time at All from Pippin as well. Anyways, here is No Time at All from Pippin.
