Musical Interlude: Too Much Time on My Hands (1981)

Styx's "Too Much Time on My Hands" was the 2nd single off 1981's "Paradise Theatre" album, and was one of the few times where guitarist Tommy Shaw, rather than keyboard player Dennis DeYoung, sang lead, though DeYoung and James "JY" Young sang backup.

Shaw also wrote "Time", which still gets some airplay on classic rock channels even today. If you didn't think Styx couldn't top themselves, they would, just 2 years later, with "Mr. Roboto", the first single off "Kilroy Was Here".
