Asia – Only Time Will Tell



Asia – Only Time Will Tell is one of my favorite songs. I even saw Asia in concert in the 80’s.

I think this one of the first albums that I listened to all of the songs. Usually I just listened to one or two of the songs and that was it. Then I would copy it on a “Favorites” cassette (wow, just felt really old typing that!).

The members of Asia were John Wetton, Steve Howe, Carl Palmer and Geoff Downes.

Here are the songs that are an the album:

  1. Heat of the Moment
  2. “Only Time Will Tell”
  3. “Sole Survivor”
  4. “One Step Closer”
  5. “Time Again”
  6. “Wildest Dreams”
  7. “Without You”
  8. “Cutting It Fine”
  9. “Here Comes the Feeling”

I’m glad when I finally got the CD because I got tried turning the album over every time I heard it and I listened to it a lot.

If you get the chance to listen to Asia debut album, you should. Thanks to YouTube for having some of their songs on their site.

  1. I remember Asia! I liked their 2 hits, but I never understood what that gymnast was doing in “Only Time Will Tell”. What was the symbolism there? Still, I remember watching MTV for hours and seeing her flip across the screen and immediately knowing what song was coming on. Weird. I miss the good old days when MTV had cool videos. sigh!

  2. I really can not get no link between the gymnast and the plot of the song. Anyway it is a beautiful song. And also the gymnast 😛
