"It's Time time again--you know what I'm sayin'," crowed Morris Day, the breezy, preening hipster who personifies the swagger and rollicking spirit of the Time's funky R&B music. What he was really saying is that the Time, after an untimely split seven years ago, has reunited.

That's the opening question in a pop quiz inspired by information in "Top Pop Annual 1955-1999," the latest in publisher Joel Whitburn's invaluable series of pop reference books.
