|Days of Future Passed track listing|
"Twilight Time" is a song from The Moody Blues' 1967 album Days of Future Passed. It is the final of three songs on the album representing the evening, along with "(Evening) Time to Get Away" (which is actually on "The Afternoon" track), and "The Sunset." Written by the Moody Blues' flautist Ray Thomas, "Twilight Time" primarily describes the scene in the sky after the sun has set. It is one of the more upbeat songs on the album (along with "Peak Hour"), played in a brooding minor key, and also has a heavy psychedelic rock sound to it.
When Days of Future Passed was remixed in 1978, a reverb was added to Ray Thomas's vocal performance on the song to match the reverb of the backing vocals by the rest of the band. In the new mix the backing vocals are heard throughout the song instead of only coming in at strategic points as in the original mix.
