“The Best of Times” is the first single release from Styx’s 1981 triple-platinum album Paradise Theater. It reached #1 in Canada on the RPM national singles chart, their second #1 in that country, and #3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The basic melody line for “The Best of Times” is used in two other places on the album: As a bold greeting to the listener in “A.D. 1928”, and a softer, more subdued version for the farewell track, “A.D. 1958”. The song was featured in the 1999 movie Big Daddy, in which Adam Sandler’s character is a Styx fan. Read on...

Song lines: ♪ Some rain some shine, we'll make this a world for two ... We'll take the best, forget the rest ... And someday we'll find these are the best of times
