This seems like an easy question, but I've looked around in Cell Formating, Excel help, and this board and have yet to find my answer. I hope someone here can help.

I am trying to list songs with their times in an Excel spreadsheet. When I'm done, I want to be able to add all the times up to see how many hours of music I've got. All songs are in a mm:ss format, but no matter how I format the time cells, they are showing up as AM or PM in the formula bar. Thanks in advance.
 

Excel Facts

Why are there 1,048,576 rows in Excel?
The Excel team increased the size of the grid in 2007. There are 2^20 rows and 2^14 columns for a total of 17 billion cells.

I don't think there's any way around that as far as time displayed in the Formula bar. Excel treats time as fractions of a day. One work around would be to format the cells as text, before entering the length of the song. To add the length of the songs,

=SUMPRODUCT(--(A1:A100))

and custom format the cell that houses the formula as

[h]:mm:ss
