Time of the Season" is a song by the British rock band the Zombies, featured on their 1968 album Odessey and Oracle. It was written by keyboard player Rod Argent and recorded at Abbey Road Studios in August 1967. Several other songs from Odessey and Oracle were released as singles prior to "Time of the Season". Columbia Records supported the album and its singles at the urging of new A&R representative Al Kooper.
The Zombies' first UK album, Begin Here (1965) was an interesting mix of original songs and rhythm and blues cover versions. Of the eight original tracks, Rod Argent supplied the big attraction, "She's Not There", the upbeat "Woman", the atmospheric "I Remember When I Loved Her", plus "The Way I Feel Inside" which, at 1:28, was the shortest track on the album. One of its tracks, "Time of the Season", written by Argent, was released as a single in 1968 and spent a long period as a 'sleeper'. The album, scheduled for release in 1969, was cancelled and only a couple of the songs, "Imagine the Swan" (one of the newly recorded songs) and "If It Don't Work Out" (a demo of a song that Dusty Springfield recorded and released in 1965), were put out as singles instead (some of this material was released on several compilation albums.

Another later-day Zombies effort that was a natural progression of their earlier work, "Imagine the Swan" was also another classically inspired piece. This time, the graceful melody was based on Bach's The Well Tempered Clavier. The subject matter - like on "Rose for Emily" - is that of a lonely spinster.
