"A Little Time" is a song by The Beautiful South, and is the band's only single to reach number 1 in the UK Singles Chart. It consists of a duet featuring vocalists Dave Hemingway and Briana Corrigan.
The single was the first to be released from the Choke album. However, the other two singles taken from the album did not share similar success; "My Book" charted at number 43 whereas "Let Love Speak Up Itself" charted at number 51.
The video won the 1991 Brit Awards for British Video of the Year, directed by photographer Nick Brandt, which is their only Brit Award to date. It features a fighting couple (played by Hemingway and Corrigan), a trashed house, a load of flour and feathers, and a teddy bear's head impaled on the end of a kitchen knife.
