Hi Gary,

I'm so excited we get an extra hour's sleep this weekend!

Hi Gary,

You and me both.

Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, and Standard Time begins, granting us an additional hour before Monday.

To help remember to turn back your clocks (if you still have any non-electronic ones that don't update automatically), here's a quite literal musical reminder.

After Johnny Hates Jazz reached No. 2 on the Hot 100 with "Shattered Dreams" in May 1988 and follow-up "I Don't Want to Be a Hero" peaked at No. 31, the trio never again appeared on the chart. Still, the melodic title track from the group's first album, "Turn Back the Clock," rose to No. 5 on Adult Contemporary.

Enjoy the extra z's!
