Jung Talent Time is a song by Australian alternative rock band TISM. Originally released as an 8-track remix EP in February 1995, the original mix was released on the group's breakthrough album Machiavelli and the Four Seasons in May.[1]

The title plays on the name of psychologist Carl Jung, and talent-search style television show Young Talent Time. It and track 11 from the album, "Aussiemandias", are the only songs to survive from the botched sessions from 1992 to 1993 that were originally going to be the album.[citation needed]


The lyrics of the song are presented as a long list of names, it is not until the chorus that the unifying thread of the list becomes clear.

Andy Warhol got it right / Everybody gets the limelight
Andy Warhol got it wrong / Fifteen minutes is too long.

Referencing Andy Warhol's famous statement that "Everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes", however TISM believe that fifteen minutes is far too long for some people to be famous, including TISM.
