"Clocks" has been regarded as one of the finest achievements of Coldplay.[23] The song's piano progression remains the band's signature creation.[24] According to The New York Times, the opening piano arpeggios of "Clocks" have been widely sampled.[8] Also, many of the songs in X&Y feature influences from "Clocks". Brian Cohen of Billboard magazine noted that "Clocks" served as a "launching pad" for songs featured in X&Y, "several of which echo that track either in structure or feel."[25] "Speed of Sound", the first single from Coldplay's third album, X&Y, is similar to "Clocks",[24][26] in that the two songs have the same descending chord progression. According to The New York Times, American singer Jordin Sparks's 2008 single "No Air" "breathes life into the overfamiliar piano line" from "Clocks".[27] The song "Should I Go" by American singer Brandy, from her album Afrodisiac, samples the piano riff of "Clocks",[28] as does Mexican singer Alejandro Fernández's 2007 single "Te Voy A Perder". In 2009, French DJ David Guetta in collaboration with Kelly Rowland released the song "When Love Takes Over", which has a piano introduction like that of "Clocks". A riff similar to "Clocks" was also used for the 2009 song "Shining Down" by Chicagoan hip hop artist Lupe Fiasco and featuring Matthew Santos. An analogous riff can also be heard in the DJ Cahill Remix of the Agnes song I Need You Now. Rolling Stone ranked "Clocks" No. 490 of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2010.[1]
Before writing and composing "Clocks", the band had already written 10 songs for the album.[3] However, because A Rush of Blood to the Head was nearing completion, they thought it was too late to include the new song on it.[4] Hence, they recorded a demo and saved it with other unfinished tracks, labeling it "Songs for #3"; the band intended these tracks for what would be their third album.[3]

A basic time clock will just stamp the date and time on a time card, similar to a parking validation machine. These will usually be activated by a button that a worker must press to stamp their card, or stamp upon full insertion. Some machines use punch hole cards instead of stamping, which can facilitate automated processing on machinery not capable of optical character recognition.
