Save the Overtime (For Me) is a 1983 single by the R&B and pop group, Gladys Knight and the Pips. The song, under the artistic direction of Leon Sylvers III (known for collaborating on Shalamar hits), was done in a soulful[1] boogie style. The single was released from their LP Visions and reached number sixty-six on the Hot 100, but was more successful on the R&B where it hit number one for a single week in mid 1983.[2] The single was the first time the group hit number one on the R&B chart since 1974.
