Time For Timer

Time for Timer was the collective title for a short series of public service announcements broadcast on Saturday mornings on the ABC television network starting in the early 1970s. The animated spots featured Timer, a tiny (often ranging on microscopic) cartoon character who represented the sense of “time” in the human body. Timer was in charge of when a person felt it was time to eat, time to sleep, etc. He carried a large pocket watch inside of him, which would often set off an alarm whenever something was about to happen.

Just A Friend

“Just a Friend” is a 1989 comedic hip hop song by rapper Biz Markie, in which he alternates between rap and singing. Although Biz Markie had many hits to his credit from the previous three years of his career—particularly “Nobody Beats the Biz”, “Pickin’ Boogers”, “Make the Music with Your Mouth, Biz”, “Something for the Radio”, and “The Vapors” to name a few—”Just A Friend” is his only successful single in Pop, reaching the #9 position on the Billboard charts.

The song interpolates the 1968 song “You Got What I Need” (1968) by the late singer/songwriter Freddie Scott, whose basic chord and melody provided the base for the song’s chorus and made it famous. Due to the widespread popularity of the song and its influence on Pop culture, Biz was classified by VH1 as a one-hit wonder, and “Just A Friend” was ranked 81st on VH1’s 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders in 2000, and later as number 100 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop in 2008. Karma, a staff record producer for Cold Chillin’ Records, told Vibe magazine in 2005 that he produced the single, but never received credit.
